Sad songs


New member
Um, I was just wondering whether anybody knew of any sad songs.

I mean, by sad, I obviously don't mean 'my gf lyk so dumped me, now lissun'.
I don't reeeaaally know what I do mean, but eh.

But yeah, any really sad songs, anyone?

Oh yeah, also love songs. Once again, real love songs, songs like 'Look for the Woman' by Scroobius Pip, or 'You Knows I Loves You' by GLC. Um, basically, more realistic songs.


I memorized that song already. In romaji. kwee~
( so I'm not the only Vocaloid otaku on this forum...)
*forces self not to go into otaku mode*

Anyway, sad songs...
Gah, I suck.
I do know some sad songs, but all I can think of as of now are in Japanese o.o

Servant of Evil, Regret Message, and Re_Birthday (I cut out Daughter of Evil cuz... it's not sad... and Re_birthday is the "happy ending")
Kokoro and Kokoro/kiseki
Soundless voice and Proof of Life
Recycle Bin and Salvage
Prisoner and Paper Airplane (especially Paper airplane)

Idk, I'll come back to edit later once I remember the songs...
also hahaha kokoro

i never cried at it but i thought it was a pretty cool song

WATASHI WA SHITAAAA YORUKOBU KOTO WO♪ and i still remember every word of it...

and aaaah recycle biiiiinn ; ~;

(as a random note to the vocatakus at this place, hakobako player is my favourite vocaloid song evarrrr bye)
Approximately half of Tom Waits' discography.

Particularly Closing Time. That album makes me want to cry and I don't even know why.
It's not even technically out yet (unless you preordered the album), but definitely Goodnight My Love by Honor Society.

I listened to it three times and I keep feeling like crying.
"requiem for all the lonely teenagers with passed out moms" - atlas sound
"names" - cat power
"never make me cry" - fleetwood mac

off the top of my head.

Forever Gone - Lyrycyst feat. Mariann Shaw is pretty sad, but I guess it's connected to when one of my online close friends passed away in August. :/ Not usually my type of music.

Apart from that...
I'm Sorry, I Am - Brokencyde*,
I Think I'm Going Insane - Brokencyde*,
What We Made - Example*,
Descene - Life's Decay,
and Promise Me - Dead by April.

But, Deeper Down - My Dying Bride is my best, for sure. If you're into that kind of music.

*I don't usually listen to rap. Seriously. But it's still sad, it's the lyrics that count.
