re: Saddest Song


First one I thought of was Brass Buttons-Gram Parsons
"And the sun comes up without her, it just doesn't know she's gone"

Also Wheels by Lone Justice and just about any version of Long Black Veil. Though I'm partial to The Band's version on Music from Big Pink.

Drugs Don't Work


Prefer the Ben Harper cover on his Live at Mars album

Also, Roses From My Friends by Ben Harper and besides Elephant, If We Were Vmpires by Jason Isbell makes me tear up every damn time I hear it.

Oh, nice call. The "so who's going to watch you die?" part at the end always gives me chills.

re: Saddest Song
More than have not been mentioned...

Ride On - AC/DC

It's another lonely evening
In another lonely town
But I ain’t too young to worry
And I ain’t too old to cry
When a woman gets me down



Black - Pearl Jam (sad love song)

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a star in somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine?
Ooh why, ooh

I won't see you Tonight - Avenged Sevenfold

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

she love my cock - Jackyl
Lol, I still have a guitar pic that has that very thing on it I recovered from a concert in mid 90s. Good times, Jackyl actually put on a better performance than ZZ Top that night.

re: Saddest Song
There are a lot of truly sad songs in this thread. I saw Warren Zevon's "Keep Me In Your Heart" was posted. Truly a sad one, and even more so considering the circumstances under which it was recorded.

When I saw Les Miserables at The Kennedy Center in 1988 I was in tears listening to the total hopelessness of this song:

"I Dreamed a Dream"

It still brings me to tears.

A bit melodramatic but I nominate "San Francisco Mabel Joy" by Mickey Newberry

Any song with that bass line is automatically disqualified. Songs can't be sad and funky at the same time.

Old school country but ever time I hear that song and think about William's life I always think for a person to have written a song like that he must have been truly sad.

Whiskey Lullaby has to be up there. Elephant was my first thought though.

I interpret it as hauntingly sad, but to each his own.

re: Saddest Song
Fiction by Avenged Sevenfold - written by the Rev who died before the album and they used some raw recordings from him on the final master. Lyrics are very sad - it’s almost like he knew he was going to die soon.

Tears in Heaven also good one.
