    This song always got to me


    Also a good song from bway. The original is very short and a little sad but this arrangement gave it much more

    This was the saddest song I've ever heard, but I'm not sad it ended, I'm glad it happened.

    Hurt, by Johnny Cash always gets me emotional. He made that song his.



    But a few others have stuck around during tough times in my life.





    This next two I first heard when the only breakup that ever affected me was going down, they really spoke to the place I was at the time, emotionally.

    Pearl Jam has a few. Release and Indifference come to mind as well. But, uh Last Kiss is actually a cover of Wayne Cochrane's 1961 song.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    I know that it's a cover, need to check out the other songs tho.

    Someone already posted it, so I won't embed it again: Last Kiss

    The thing about most sad songs is that they try to create the feeling of loss or heartbreak from the future, as they are often the result of past emotions felt by the writer. But Last Kiss puts you right in the moment, going step by step through the moment of loss like you are there. The pain of sadness can last a long time, even forever, but the pain you feel at the moment is far worse than the memory. It's instinct. The absolute desperation of seeing something you took for granted ripped away. If other sad songs, like Whiskey Lullaby or Snuff are the ache from stubbing a toe, Last Kiss is the moment of impact.

    I assumed the music for that video would be:

    because that music alone can make me tear up. I guess it's not a good theme for Vash and Meryl though.

    Here's one I find pretty sad:

    Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven, especially once you learn it was written for his young child who tragically died when he fell out of his apartment window.

    I think I have to go with Chasing Cars, or How to Save a Life. The latter mostly because of the music video which features kids who've lost someone to suicide.

    I'm sure you can tell when I grew up just by those fucking songs, lol.
