The Sad Song Playlist. Here are what I consider to be the saddest songs I know. A mix of emotion and lyrical content. Enjoy! I will continuing updating this playlist as new tracks seem to feel right for this mix.

A collection of the saddest songs I could find from rock, alternative rock, hard rock, indie, progressive, and metal.

Hey attmfk!

 

That's an awesome playlist, going to take me a while to get through.

 

I'd recommend checking out the live version of The National's 'About Today' too, that's a great track.

 

A few of my favourite sad songs at the moment:

The 1975 – Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You

Bhi Bhiman – Guttersnipe

Antony & The Johnsons – Hope There's Someone

Spiritualized – Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space

Alan Silvestri – Cast Away End Credits

 

Hope you enjoy some of these!

Hey attmfk, I completely appreciate the honest feedback.:)

 

I'm glad that you enjoyed the first three and I hope you do check out those artists. I personally think Matt Berninger's baritone voice adds an incredible element to the track and I find the implied storyline desperately sad. But hey, it hits everyone differently doesn't it? Let's continue the exchange!

 

@Greg excited to hear these. Don't know 3 out of 5 which is the best part.

This is my achingly beautiful sad song list, which I have painstakingly put together to really capture the spirit of melancholy.
