As things soon turned out, shortly after the recording of these
"Grow Old with Me"
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we'll both just have to be patient
Hank Williams: "I´m so lonesome I could cry". Even Elvis said that it was "Probably the saddest song I ever Heard" (Honolulu Concert January 14 1973).
Pete Ham has some pretty sad ones. "The Name Of The Game" and this demo:
Page 8 and no Fake Plastic Trees?
“She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns“
“And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time
All the time”
Page 8 and no No Surprises?
“A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal”
[Best opening lines of a sad song, ever.]
I posted "The Winner Takes It All" in Post #82, and it is one of my favorite sad songs too.
Element of crime - Dont you smile
I've just been in a nostalgic binge these days...
Gordon Lightfoot - I'm Not Supposed To Care
I don’t know if this is the saddest song I’ve ever heard (one of the saddest anyway) but it’s the first song that came to my mind:
Beach Boys – I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times
Simon & Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy In New York
This thread is incomplete without this monster tear-jerker -
Ray Peterson, Tell Laura I Love Her:
An elegiac classic -
Brenda Lee, Losing You:
Since Big Star's Holocaust has already been chosen I'll go with:
Although Pete Ham's Ringside is up (down) there too.
Lou Reed, "The Kids" and "Caroline Says II"
Without You by Harry Nilsson written by Pete Ham and Tom Evans.
Chris Bell. There *was* a light...
Castles Made of Sand - Jimi Hendrix Experience
I think Gary tried to do his own Careless Whisper with this song, it kind of sounds similar to that song. Sad pop song
Gary Barlow - Lie to me
A much more recent one than what I've already posted -
House of Love, Shake and Crawl:
Isn’t It A Pity (long version) — George Harrison
His dog up and died. And after 20 years he still grieves.
