    From the poll I'd say Tears In Heaven, specially when you know the story behind it.

    Other songs that affect me would be Unforgiven by Metallica and So far Away by Avenged Sevenfold. I'm not even that big of a fan of Avenged Sevenfold, but that song really got to me, a really great and sad song at the same time.

    This was made 6 weeks before Freddie died. He was basically on his deadbed when he wrote it and he killed it.

    But there are too many songs that tie to personal experiences. I had a few years of unrequited love...yikes. That was when songs from Kristopher Astrom like "Poor boy's heart", "Oh yeah, that's nice" or "Until tomorrow" were killing me. And even more so Christian Kjellvander. "Two souls" or "Union lake". Hell..almost everything he has done...

    So, in short: the internet.

    In Flames - Satellites and Astronauts
    Metallica - Fade to Black
    Woods of Ypres - End of Tradition

    Those are just a few, I think I could come up with a lot more. Anyway, those are (for me) the most personal sad songs I can remember off the top of my head which is why I post them.
