I would have to say St. You by the Constantines. That's a great song, one of my favorites.

I couldn't agree more...plus there's one by Beethoven that is completely escaping my mind at the moment...Midnight Sonata, maybe? If any of you haven't seen the movie Immortal Beloved, you should!


Plus, these others always get me:
With or Without You - U2
Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
Please, Please Me - Ben Harper
Fade Into You - Mazzy Starr
Anna Begins, Perfect Blue Buildings - Counting Crows



though, for me...anything played or sang with intensity/passion will be poignant for me...I'm a sucker for passion and romance!

Hey,my name's Kristine too! How exciting!


Do you have to say "with a K" like 40 times a day too?? Hehe.


And since I'm posting again I'll add 'Pay for What You Get' by Dave Matthews Band.

Quite a few floydian ones get to me,
including comfortably numb, and high hopes but also goodbye blue sky and wish you were here, I know it's not a song, but the waters poetry that's spoken at the end of the wall gets me choked up as it reminds me of how I used to be

A classical pick: Adagio by Albinoni. As sad as it gets, ever.


Other favorite sad songs are Red House Painters version of Silly Love Songs, Nina Simone´s Wild if the wind and Jeff Buckley´s Lover you should´ve come over.


Saddest metal song ever - Fade to black by Metallica.

I would have to say "exit music (for a film)" by Radiohead. It's the closing theme to Romeo+Juliet directed by Baz Luhrman. You actually watch the credits for that song... It put a greatly powerful tone to the end of the film. If you haven't seen it, do so! You either love or hate Baz Luhrman, I love.

There is an acoustic version of "On your Own" by The Verve on their single "History". Its just a guitar and a piano. Its woefully depressing.

They are very good band, Guy Garvey love writing emotional lyric like New Born, But I think Powder Blue is the saddest song out of Elbow.


"Bring That Minutes Back, I Never Get So Close To Death, Make You So Alive"


Absolutely Touchy!

ok well regardless of lyrics or anything, i am sat here absolutely crying my eyes out to Grace by the legend that is Jeff Buckley. if that means it's sad then yes it is, but it might have to do with the fact that someone i have worked with for 3 and a half years died this morning of a brain tumour, and the fact that that brings to the fore all the bereavement of my dad as well...............been a sh*tty day!!


oh my god the way he sings the lines in my signature.....the whole song....wow..........amazing....i really need to get some sleep [img]smileys/smiley12.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley6.gif[/img]

I hope you realize it's alsotrack 4 on OK ComputerAnywhooo... it's not a very sad song I reckon... And now we are one in everlasting peace. It's a song about escapism, which in a way means hope to me...


Elbow are a great band as well! But like Exit Music their lyrics always sound hopeful to me[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]


Jeff Buckley... what can I say... Last Goodbye is one of the saddest songs ever. Grace isn't.. to me that is. But I'm not afraid, afraid to die.


I've said it before and I'll say it again... if you really wanna hear depressing stuf... Bright Eyes is the band for you![img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]


And i scream, but i still don't know why i do it
Because the sound never stays it just swells and decays
So what is the point?
Why try to fight what is now so certain?
The truth is all that i am is a passing event that will be forgotten.

Btw... listen to the Bright Eyes song "It's Cool, We Can Still Be Friends" and you'll get my point![img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]The ultimate song about heartache![img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]


I'm pouring some whiskey right now, I'm going to get so, so drunk
