    The happy songs are sickingly sweet happy clappy. The sad songs are melancholic.

    I don't really cry to music but from memory, these are some sad songs I recall. Actually, some (or all) of them are more depressing than they are sad.

    Go West - Tracks of My Tears
    Phil Collins - Everyday
    Sarah McLachlan - When Somebody Loved Me
    Sarah McLachlan - Adia
    Sarah McLachlan - Do What You Have To Do
    Sarah McLachlan - Seriously, What The Hell Did Someone Do To This Woman To Make Her So Freaking Depressing

    I swear there's a good song by the goo goo dolls that fits this but I can't figure it out off the top of my head, though.

    Now good sad songs are hard to think of.

    EDIT: Hurt probably would have to win if the song needs to be worth listening to, yeah.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    Yeah, don't find any of their songs sad for some reason, even stuff from If You're Feeling Sinister which is clearly meant to be. Don't think they're 'completely devoid of any real substance' though.

    It's a tough one, a lot of my favourite artists deal in sorrow as one of their main currencies. For sheer resigned agony tho you'll do well to top The Eternal by Joy Division. In fact Closer as an album doesn't have too many cheerful moments.

    American Music Club's own Sultan of Sorrow, Mark Eitzel has had his low points too, it's fair to say. Jenny (from the abso-****ing-lutely essential California) is an anguished plea to a smacked-out friend & Last Harbor from the same album is a final cry for the solace of companionship, but for mine The Hula Maiden from their United Kingdom LP is his saddest work. He booked a holiday in Hawaii with his dad, who died before the vacation started. Eitzel went anyway and, suffice to say, didn't have a good time.

    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Yeah, maybe it was that, or Broadway, or Name, or Black Balloon. They all have touches of sadness to them but at the same time I wouldn't call any of them the saddest songs ever.
