What is the saddest song you have 
ever listened to?

  1. I actually have to say CATHY'S CLOWN only my high school sweetheart used to sing it to me after we broke up and he changed the words to "Annie's Clown". I always feel bad about it.

  2. Amazing Grace always brings tears to my eyes.

  3. Same Old Lang Syne by Dan Fogelberg. The way he tells that story, the two characters sound so sad. But then I learned that later in real life, they meet up again. He said, he didn't write a song about that time. So things worked out, at least for a bit.

  4. Ode to Billie Joe: "Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge...And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge."

  5. "Someday I Will Lead the Parade" by Jo-El Sonnier wipes the smile right off my face.

  6. Ooh good question. Cathy's Clown is a classic. Mine is by a British rapper called Plan B called "Tough Love". It's a very hard track to listen to.

  7. Lots of them. Eleanor Rigby always yanks on my heart strings though.

  12. Crying in the Chapel made me cry when I was twelve, but I don't remember why. Perhaps I misunderstood the song. More recently, a few years ago, Last Kiss by Pearl Jam made me cry.

  13. "Tears From Heaven" by Eric Clapton and Johnny Cash's version of "Bridge over Troubled Water".

  14. I'm not a cryer by nature, but bagpipes at a funeral always make me misty. In January I heard that the lead singer of The Cranberries had died and when I heard "Linger," I must admit it did make me cry. The world had lost such a hauntingly beautiful voice and it was such a sad thing.

  15. It's not really sad song, but Amazing Grace always makes me mist up because it is universally played at every funeral of all my family members. (I think it might be time to switch up.)

  16. "Tell Laura I Love Her" which I used to play for friends on the guitar.

    I have written sadder songs for friends who requested me too.
