    Hard to believe this one did not make the top 20

    YouTube - Elton John - Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word - 1976

    it is even sad to watch him sing it in this video

    One of my favorite sad songs is:

    YouTube - Guns N' Roses - November Rain (High Quality)

    Could be because that is what kind of day we are having, a cold November Rain (some are getting sleet and snow)

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    While not particularly sad comparitvely speaking, the song that always brings tears to my eyes. My sister who passed on had placed this as her song on myspace. It always makes me think of her and I cannot do that with out tears.


    YouTube - Leona Lewis - Bleeding Love (Official US Music Video)



    and also along those lines, this song while there is no direct memory of her related to this song, it also is quite sad to me.

    YouTube - Evanescence
