Sometimes you just need someone to understand you more or maybe you just need to have a good cry to move ahead with your life. Whatever the situation, I listed the TOP 10 SADDEST SONGS from the most saddest to least saddest and why each of them made this list in my opinion. (WARNING: MIGHT BE TRIGGERING TO SOME PEOPLE).
1. Mad World by Michael Andrews feat. Gary Jules.
This song can be interpreted as a song about suicide as it explains how dreams of him dying are the best dreams he has ever had. Hearing all the emotion in his voice makes it a lot more sad.
2. Cancer by My Chemical Romance.
The tile of this song is very self-explanatory as this song explains the problems a lot of cancer patients face and how they feel. For example, this song states their body is in agony. So even if this song is pretty short, it still contains lots of meaning.
3. My Immortal by Evanescence.
This song can be interpreted as a song about suicide as it explains how she can’t take it anymore because someone hurt her.
4. Breathe Me by Sia.
A song about self-harm and just wanting someone to care. All the emotion in her voice makes it a lot more depressing.
5. At Seventeen by Céline Dion.
A song about being envious over good-looking people because she felt ugly.
6. How to Save A Life by The Fray.
The title of this song is pretty self-explanatory as it explains how he wished he knew how-to save a life.
7. Suicide Note by Kyle Spratt.
This song is more of a story as it explains what happens when you commit suicide and gives many reasons to try to stay alive.
8. Speechless by Lady Gaga.
This song is meant for Lady Gaga’s dad. This song is dedicated to him because he refused to get a surgery that he badly needed, but Lady Gaga gives him reasons to get the surgery. He soon got the surgery after this song’s release.
9. Creep by Radiohead.
A song about jealousy of those who seem to be perfect while you have insecurities about yourself.
10. Suicide by Rihanna.
A song about trying to decide whether to stay with the one she loves or not. She gives more detail about how loving them is suicide to her.
