    Vincent - Don McLean

    “For they could not love you
    But still your love was true
    And when no hope was left in sight
    On that starry, starry night
    You took your life, as lovers often do
    But I could have told you, Vincent
    This world was never meant for one
    As beautiful as you.”

    "I am all alone....alone in this world..."

    (edit - the fan-made video actually has an error - the song is called "Rooftop")

    do you need to have lived in a shantytown to appreciate the sadness?

    Its gotta be a country song... right?

    How about- "He Stopped Loving her Today" by George Jones. A real wrist cutter.

    If you think this is sad.....don’t listen to his song “ Marie” . You won’t pull over and stop...you will just drive into the nearest river!

    Townes Van Zandt has many sad songs. "Marie" is the saddest.

    Chris Bell “I Am The Cosmos.” He just sounds so pathetic and sad with that first verse:

    Every night I tell myself
    I am the cosmos
    I am the wind
    But that don't get you back again

    Song for Guy - Elton John

    Elton said this in the sleeve notes of the 7-inch single:
    "As I was writing this song one Sunday, I imagined myself floating into space and looking down at my own body. I was imagining myself dying. Morbidly obsessed with these thoughts, I wrote this song about death. The next day I was told that Guy [Burchett], our 17-year-old messenger boy, had been tragically killed on his motorcycle the day before. Guy died on the day I wrote this song."

    Bright Eyes - Art Garfunkel

    While Watership Down traumatised a generation of kids in the UK, just reading some of the comments on YouTube while listening to this song brings a lump to my throat...

    Jackson C Frank, 'Blues Runs the Game' , His story is incredibly sad . This is his legacy song and a staple of the sixties folk movement .It is such a personal song that only Jackson himself can sing it with the pathos the song requires.
