    Seasons in the sun by Westlife. This song is just so bad and depressing. Although it can be fun when sung at a KTV, while completely drunk.

    Are you sure you're not just getting older? My 72 year old father had exactly the same opinion about music from the 60s and 70s.

    Any song that uses "autotune". It makes me sad that people with no talent can become stars in this day and age.

    Two sad songs from me:

    Elton John, Indian Sunset
    Elton John, Don't let the sun go down on me

    That is all....

    Yes, the Beatles were great at bringing the instruments they played into the feeling of the song.

    The Long and Winding Road touches me. But Paul himself criticized the way it was orchestrated during production; he didn't like it, but went along with it. I'm glad he did.

    Anything that comes on the radio or TV today makes me sad that music has completely died. Everybody is copying someone else now. Everything has been done before. Nobody is original anymore. The FM radio broke in my truck about 3 years ago, and I still have not fixed it. I have been much happier without it.

    Me too. He murdered that song. Here is the original.

    Joy Division

    The saddest song I have ever heard was "He Would Be Sixteen" by Michelle Wright.

    "I Will Take Care of You" by Amy Sky also tears me up.

    Beth- Kiss

    Somebody to love- Queen

    needle and the damage done- Neil Young. The Jewel version I think is so much better (in a sad way)

    Will post more when I can think of more.

    Oh and the music video of Hello World by Lady Antebellum makes me cry YouTube - ‪Lady Antebellum - Hello World‬‏

    Wow. No mention of anything classical here. Sad day indeed. Try the Lacrymosa from Mozart's Requiem. Or Schindler's List, Main Theme. Or the opening to Verdi's Requiem. Or Bach's Chaconne in d minor for solo violin.

    All of those evoke a serious feeling of sadness.

    On a non-classical note, Barfly by Enter the Haggis is awesome (in a sad, depressing sort of way).

    Many many songs that hit a nerve and maybe stir up emotions for various reasons, but one that really does hit a nerve is Mike and the Mechanics "The Living Years", think it's such an emotional song.
