  3. Maybe not the saddest song, but the one with the most melancholic vibe.

  4. The saddest VOICE I've heard is Karen Carpenter. Case In Point

  5. These two are in my 'guaranteed to make me cry' list:

    "Tell the world I'm not in, I'm not taking the call..."

    And dearly departed Laura Branigan:

  7. I think this is a really sad song. I kind of think it's about when a loved one passes away and you find all kinds of stuff they couldn't let go of and then you can't bear to let it go either.

  8. Not sure about all time, but this has been the saddest song for me in 2021 so far
  9. I can’t believe this slipped my mind. Probably is indeed the saddest song I’ve ever heard.


  10. Her version of this is wrecking me every single time.

    Also this mostly forgotten b-side always leaves me in pieces.

  13. I'll have to concur on this one. Props to the Nine Inch Nails original as well, because it's pretty damn depressing itself, in its own different way.

    Here's my own pick: "Nutshell". A sad song to begin with. Then I saw the MTV Unplugged video of it, and it just made it worse. It was six more years before Layne's addiction claimed his life, but already in this performance, you're clearly watching a dying man. Pretty painful to witness... and yet he still sings his heart out.

    Though not necessarily the saddest these are ones that (for whatever reason) make me feel down in a non-cute way. Like I can ugly cry to My Heart Will Go On and still kinda enjoy it like crying watching a romcom but these two just make me feel uncomfortably depressed
