Re: Thomas Ligotti's Top Eleven Sad Songs

I don't know if I could come up with eleven, but I know one that would be on it - Johnny Cash's version of Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Ah...best not go there...I could do eleven songs of just him...

My number two would be Joe Strummer's Leopardskin Limousines:
All the way back to his first solo album in '89....beautiful sad song

Re: Thomas Ligotti's Top Eleven Sad Songs

Let's see...

Top eleven saddest songs?


Actually, this is harder than I thought. I think I tend to listen to depressing songs more than heartrending songs, but...


Three for the price of one, there.




I feel like this list is going off-course somehow.

Re: Thomas Ligotti's Top Eleven Sad Songs

What an excellent topic. Melencholy melodies are a comfort in their own right. At any rate, here are some I consider the saddest of the sad.:

1. Tom Waits - Whistle Down The Wind
2. Grandaddy - Beautiful Ground
3. Virgin Black - Museum of Iscariot
4. The Handsome Family - White Dog
5. Pearl Jam - The End
6. Porcupine Tree - Feel So Low
7. Black Sabbath - Solitude
8. Sonata Arctica - Draw Me
9. Julie Cruise - Questions In A World of Blue
10. Nightwish - Dead Boys Poem
