Very Emotional Top 10 HIT Single from the powerful vocalist, Shirley Bassey, recorded back in 1963! This song deserves to be on this list!
Very sad song >> This emotional Top 10 single for Shirley was recorded in 1963 >> She has been faithfully performing this song during LIVE concerts for over four decades.
Saw shirley way back in 1972 at liverpool empire shes pure classMore comments about I (Who Have Nothing) - Shirley BasseyListen to sample
This song always makes me sad. Beautiful lyrics and vocals by Madonna. It will remind you of childhood days, will definetely make you nostalgic. Beautiful song.
I adore this song. We must say a big "Thank You" to Madonna for this pure masterpiece. Emotional, sad but very beautiful lyrics. This track will never be outdated because we all start as kids, then teens, then mature and then... We recollect the days of our childhood listening to this song

When I heard this song first time I thought: that is so good that my parents love each other and I don't have that pain that was about in this song. Now my parents are divorced and my feelings of this song are very sad.
My god! this my favorite song of all time. A lot of people who have had broken families could relate to this song including me. It makes me cry everytime. And P! nk is such a great singer, she puts real emotion to this song.
When I was a high school girl I used to play it times and time, lets say 50 times a that, it really touched my heart... Best of pink...Listen to sample
First time I heard this song, I literally started crying. But if you hear Soldier Side, you'll weep so hard...
What can you do is you alone... the music and lyric so lonely... but, bad video clip.
one of soads only soft songs with an amzing solo

This is one of the saddest and yet most epic songs I've ever heard. I am also very surprised that I Won't See You Tonight (part 1) isn't on here (same artist). Its very long but equally powerful. The lyrics in this song are sad but inspiring at the same time, and the amazing solo just uplifts you after from the sadness. Wonderful song.
Very Sad But Powerful Song

Whining about relationships is not sad. Telling a story about a man whos dreams and inspirations led him to destroy and take his own life is sad.
OMG when I heard this song I was fronzen to death, someone else Im pretty sure would cry, but I don't know how could I stay cool.
And one of the most underrated artists ever.
you think the beginning is messed up? by the time you get to the end you like... dang I would do it to if I was him. its one of the most heart burning songs for meMore comments about Dance With the Devil - Immortal TechniqueListen to sample
I think this song is really sad, but I loved it so much I had to listen to it over and over, it made me cry 5 out 7 times I would watch it in one day.
I was having a bad day & I ended up balling my eyes out pathetically when I first heard this song. I actually learned it on the piano.. I still listen to it and play it all the time.
One of the few songs you don't hear live because it's so personal to her, you can relate to it on so many levels...More comments about Hello - EvanescenceListen to sample
What's make this song special is that every one understand it in his way
It is sad in a way. The boys dedicated this to Denniz Pop. I dedicate this song to my late dog Milton and cat Lily and 3 of my grandparents.
This is Backstreet probably at its best. A heart touching song that will surely take you to another world of your own... A must track to be included in the list.

Great.. Now is on 59. That's progress.
I voted this song because it shouldn't be on 60.Listen to sample
Such a sad song, though amazing just because its not about love or a boyfriend its about not living the life you want and being lonely. Amazing song.Listen to sample
Definitely the Saddest, not matter how many times you hear it, it's always hit the soft spots.
my dad used to sing this song to me every night to make me fall asleep... and as I got older I realized that he has missed a lot of my life because of his job!
Anytime you see this song featured on a television show or a movie there is always a person who either has a tear running down his face in the show (or in real life) it really hits home for many people and should be more respected as one of the saddest of all time.More comments about Cat's In The Cradle - Harry ChapinListen to sample
You Stupid Idiot This song is sad because he kills a dog not because he's no longer around you n00b well I suppose it does make it a bit more sad but it is mainly because the dog dies
Guys, you're only voting for the most famous sad songs. This song may be old, but it is easily sadder than anything else written except possibly Tears in Heaven and Seasons in the Sun.
Your calling that a really sad song its just not as sad as this it was in the Top 5 I bet the 5 songs in front are funny compared to this

Depressing song that actually sounds uplifting, but still keeping a depressing mood. It's kinda like those scenes in a movie where the main character's friend just died, but he doesn't feel sad, he just accepts the fact. In that way, it's a unique, melancholy kind of sadness. Definitely not #1, but I think it deserves a place on this list.

I love this song, and hopefully so many others do too. It's in Japanese and English, but even though you don't know what the Japanese lyrics mean, the song is so powerful. It stirkes something deep within one's heart.
Okay, So It's Not Sad But The Meaning Of The Lyrics Are Sad.
