I might update this as I go along, but "More" (pick whichever artist did it) always seemed sad to me. Another one that seemed sad to me was, oh, gosh, I can't even think of the name, but it's a Christmas song about having a merry Christmas and the war being over (Vietnam?). I think it's "The War is Over" or something.

Six Feet From The Edge - Creed
Settle for a Slowdown - Dierks Bentley

It sounds like a song I've heard before. Was it about a boy that needed/wanted a pair of shoes for Christmas?

Hello:
 I don't have a real sad song from me, but one of them should be: "Bright Eyes", I still remember the movie version and the moment when it was played.
 If we hold on together, was also a sog played in the right moment, at the end of a great movie :yes .
 I may have many more, but I may post them when I remember them :^.^:

Valentine's Day - Linkin Park (I can sum this one up in a few lines "...the ground below grew colder/as they put you down inside/but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing/so now you're gone/and I was wrong/I never knew what it was like/to be alone/on a Valentine's day")

This one always strikes a sad nerve 'cuz I not only lost one of my dogs on this day in 2007, but also found out my grandmother was terminal with cancer when I was fourteen on Valentine's Day, so...it's a sad tune to listen to :cry.

Here are other tearjerkers:

Linkin Park-Little Things Give You Away
Linkin Park-Leave Out All The Rest
Martina McBride-Concrete Angel
Hoobastank-The Reason
Evanescence-My Immortal
Evanescence-Missing
Evanescence-Lithium
Evanescence-Like You
Evanescence-Good Enough
Christina Aguilera-Hurt
Sarah MacLachlan-Adia
Sarah MacLachlan-Ben's Song
Cher-We All Sleep Alone
Avril Lavigne-When You're Gone
Buckcherry-Sorry
Linkin Park-Pushing Me Away
Creed-One Last Breath
Simple Plan-How Could This Happen To Me?
Snow Patrol-Chasing Cars
Rascal Flatts-What Hurts the Most

That's a rap, and that's all I can think of for now.  Yeah, I'm obviously terribly sensitive :slap  :rolleyes:.

Sound the Bugle - Spirit: SOTC

Dialga's Theme - Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness/Time (Dialga's Theme) Energetic but mournful especially the first time you hear it (Due to storyline).

Anything by Evanescence

Many versions of Hallelujah. Especially Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley.

Here's a tearjerker:

R.E.M-Everybody Hurts

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When youre sure youve had enough of this life, well hang on.
Dont let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong. now its time to sing along.
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think youve had too much of this life, well hang on.

Everybody hurts. take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts. dont throw your hand. oh, no. dont throw your hand.
If you feel like youre alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If youre on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
When you think youve had too much of this life to hang on.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
Everybody cries. and everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes. so, hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on. hold on, hold on. hold on, hold on. (repeat & fade)
(everybody hurts. you are not alone.)

Here's another one:

Seether feat. Amy Lee(Evanescence)

Broken


I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph; I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

ëCause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
ëCause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel light when you’re gone away

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There’s so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

ëCause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
ëCause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

ëCause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
ëCause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel light when you’re gone away



Absolutely love this song although it's sad B).
