Sad Songs thread

Whenever my winter depression kicks in, I like to wallow in it and listen to gut-wrenchingly sad songs. I’d be curious to hear if anyone else does this, and would love to hear what songs you reach for.

This is a new song for me, and it’s going to be a tough one to beat. Nick Cave singing about his dead son:

I never realized “sad rap” was a thing. This one is in regular February rotation for me:

listen to anything from Evanesence and Johnny Hollow.

This is a very special stand alone post.
You have to slow the playback speed down on the YouTube settings to .75 or .50 depending on your mood…

Damien Jurado’s Saint Bartlett Album is a beautiful sad masterpiece, every song.

The singer in the video actually wrote this song about his ex wife and their separation and divorce. She’s in the video too. Well written song and well recorded. This one always hits me in the feels.


Saddest song ever!

Great song, but a very sad video.

Nick Drake. Everything. The greatest.
But, Pink Moon for the especially sad.

I always found this to be sad specially when you consider the bond between these two.
