• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Sad songs

i haven't heard that mdb song but fuck know i'd go for "sear me mcmcxii" or "the snow in my hand"
Chemo Limo - Regina Spektor.

I don't know about emotional effect overall, but the subject matter is absolutely heartbreaking.
Hello - Evanescence
Wise Woman - Monika McGee and Lenansidhe
Passage - Vienna Teng
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley (only heard his version. well, and alexandra burke's)
Ever - Emilie Autumn
The Wedding Day - Monika McGee and Lenansidhe
Mad World - Gary Jules
Giselle - RURUTIA (I don't think it's actually sad though, it just makes me feel sad)
Pavane - RURUTIA
Waiting.. - BoA
Cassie - Flyleaf

Roughly in order. All I can think of right now, but I'm sure there are more I know.
It's a great song. I like it. But not as much as my precious doom metal. Not that it is actually doom metal, but fuck that.

Snowcapped fucking mountains, rain on the forest. I'm gonna die, tralala, fuck you all.
Dear God - A7X

Only one I can think of right now, considering I listened to it a few hours ago.
oh jesus christ

Letter~From the Lost Days - Akira Yamaoka.

I just heard it for the first time by itself without the cutscene playing over it (which alone already has made me cry) and I'm sobbing.

I suppose the song has a happy message, but the way it is sung makes it feel like... it's a far off dream. It feels so unsure. It breaks my heart
If I may offer my Broadway-related suggestions:

Life Support from RENT
I'll Cover You (Reprise) from RENT
I'm Not That Girl from Wicked
For Good from Wicked
There's a Fine, Fine Line from Ave Q
Pretty much anything from Les Mis (I mean, it's in the title), but the saddest ones, I think, are I Dreamed a Dream and On My Own
Under Your Spell (reprise) from the Buffy Musical (Once More, With Feeling)
Where Do We Go From Here? from the Buffy Musical
And while not from the musical ep, Michelle Branch's song Goodbye to You makes me a very sad panda because of its placement in another Buffy ep.
talking heads' "this must be the place (naive melody)" is sort of sad-sounding. with the lyrics accounted for, it's not so much sad as it is just nervous.
Alyssa Lies - Jason Michael Carroll
Tears - Jason Michael Carroll
One - Bare the Pop Opera (:()
See Me - Bare the Pop Opera and then listen to Warning - Bare the Pop Opera
Concrete Angel - Martina McBride

AND I have others but I can't think of them right now.
