Hello there, Jacob827.

 

Sad songs are powerful as they could draw a person deeper into darkness and yet bringing out the peace from deep inside at the end of the songs. And hence, after giving a thought, these songs appeared and so here they are:

 

Send In The Clowns (losing hope...)

by Judy Collins

 

Desperado (no more hope...)

by Eagles

 

The Sound of Silence (welcome to darkness)

 by Simon & Garfunkel

 

Numb (no more feelings)

by Linkin Park

lol it's weird for me not to listen sad songs, even if I'm happy.. I just think that an artist (and I put myself in it as I'm a singer songwriter) makes their best masterpieces when they're having troubles..

If you want check out Flussodicoscienza by Giulia Alari on spotify, it's my song

I wish spotify could put a judas priest missing album "Demolition" and seems like there is another album from JP that is not there. How can I request missing content on Spotify ???

Not really, but after I listened to some that made me cry I started listening more closely to the feelings they produce inside of me. 

This one made me sad, but it's so true if you listen to just a few lines like 

"Goodbye Paradise" or Billions are wasted on weapons and are ...

"The World is Dying"

spotify:track:7ABEQpO0GYvOHQjhVh3gTe

 

And songs like "Telegraph Road" or "Seasons in the sun" or a Country Song like "Lucille" can really  make me sad and think.

Guess I'm here to represent some old folk-ish songs! 

 

Did no one mention Nick Drake? His first two records were achingly beautiful, very autumnal. Emotional string arrnagements and quiet vocals. His final record, Pink Moon, was just vocals and guitar. Very pained.

 

The title track was used in a Volkswagen commercial around 2000 and brought him the fame he never achieved in his lifetime. The only exception to the vocals/guitar dynamic is  14-note piano melody played twice in the bridge of "Pink Moon."

Another, "From the Morning."  "And now we rise, and we are everywhere." - spotify:track:1Q2PWRAKkj3WxMPf7VEEJ1

 

His last batch of songs that found release on compilations, such as Black-Eyed Dog, Rider on the Wheel, and Hanging on a Star seemed to deal with his feelings of failure and depression after finding no success during his career. Particular of note is the lyric in "Hanging on a Star" -- "why leave me hanging on a star when you deemed me so high?"

 

Also of note is Connie Converse, arguably one of the first singer-songwriters. Predating Bob Dylan, Tim Buckley, and that entire East Village folk scene, Connie came and went very quickly.

"I don't stand in the need of company, with everything I see talking like you."

 

 

And finally, the tragic story of Jackson C. Frank. A childhood fire left him injured, he had a promising folk career, and then he was homeless towards the end of his life. "Blues Run the Game" is his most famous. His singing is fantastic.
