what is the most moving/sad song ever?

Recommended Posts

For me, Tangerine, That's The Way, The Rain Song, Tear In Heaven by Clapton, Bell Bottom Blues by Derek and The Dominos, Fool In The Rain, All My Love, Desperado by The Eagles, 'Cause We've Ended as Lovers by Jeff Beck, You're So Good For Me by Humble Pie, and Rough Boy by ZZ Top, there's probably a few other but those make me particularly emotional.

Any Elton John fans out there? How about "We All Fall in Love Sometimes"?


I am a true Elton John fan,and I must say he made numerous moving songs,Blue eyes and Somemone saved my life tonight(this song is a genuine masterpiece,Elton at his best) are some of my favourites,and of course Your Song.

I, once upon a time

Carried a burden inside

I sung a last goodbye

A broken rhyme I had underlined

There's an ocean of sorrow in you

A sorrow in me

I saw movement in their eyes

They said I no longer knew the way

I had given up the ghost

A passive mind submit to fear

And the wait for redemption at hand

Waiting to fail

Failing again

If death should take me now

Count my mistakes and let me through

Whisper in my ear

You've taken more than we've received

And the ocean of sorrow is you

Unfortunetaly they edited it a bit, for the full version check Watershed....

Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond (part 6-9, especially at the end there's such a "hopelessness")

...and something newer: in my opinion "Long Slow Goodbye" by the Queens of the Stone Age is quite a sad song, too

Clarence Carter - Patches

Never had a song make me cry, but this song is very sad and might come close.. :D

It's too upbeat to make you cry, but if it were slowed down to a very low tempo, I might cry. :D

I find the more recent version of "Both Sides Now" truly very moving; sung with maturity and experience, and reflection. It strikes me as a totally different song than the original.

For me (depressing songs):

Zep - Ten Years Gone; Tea For One; I'm Gonna Crawl

Pink Floyd - Nobody Home; Two Suns In The Sunset

Fleetwood Mac - Man Of The World

Joan Baez - Diamonds And Rust; Where have all the flowers gone?

Santana - Samba Pa Ti

Harry Belafonte & Nana Mouskouri - September

Leonard Cohen - The Faith

A-Ha - Forever Not Yours

Everything But The Girl - I don't want to talk about it

Blur - No Distance left to run


But I think that the winner is Cohen's "The Faith" :depressed:

The Cure - Pictures of You

Thin Lizzy - Still In Love With You (I'd swear Phil is crying in the version on the "Life, Live" album, but Sykes' solo isn't as heartbreaking as robbo's on "Live And Dangerous"
