When I think of sad songs, one truly stands out. This song is devastating in its nature and always manages to reach  into the dark sadness contained deep within me. Like a dark black cloud of misery, this song has followed me through my life. Managing to make my dark days that much darker. What is this dark depressing song that I am describing? Well I have embedded it below. But before you watch I must stress that this song is not for the faint heated and may plunge you into a deep unbreakable gloom.

      1. True, true. Like “Shiny Happy People,” songs with an upbeat tempo and sad lyrics can be more saddening than depressing. Beatles, “In My Life.”

  1. Don’t Think Me Odd For Saying This…
    …But Each AND Every Time I Used To Hear “MY WAY” Performed By ELVIS PRESLEY, I’d Cry. I Love The Song, And It’s Been Done Over And Over By Many Different Folks…
    …But NONE Move Me Like When ELVIS Sings It.
    To This Day, I Get Misty When Hearing It.
    Perhaps I AM Odd???
    Hmm…

      Am, I have never gotten that vibe from ‘My Way’ before., although it is a great song all the same.

      1. It’s about Christmas, which was always a tough time when I was growing up. Dad imbibed – a lot – and Christmas was worse than usual.

        What about “Shiny, Happy…” makes you sad? The irony of it?

  2. we had a “sad song” little community CD where we each selected what we thought were the saddest songs and compiled them…mine were “Fur Alina” by Arvo Part, and “John Wayne Gacy” by Sufjan Stevens – enjoyed this

  3. Hi Keelan,
    Not to sound cheesy, but the ultimate song that makes me cry is Without you by U.2 ( and plenty by Linkin Park’s: Numb, Iridescent…). Thanks for liking my blog’s entry btwn. 🙂
