What are some of your favorite sad/depressing songs?

They don't have to have sad or sorrowful themes, just be somewhat tear-worthy in sound.

For example, one of my favorites is Rachel Platten's "You Belong". It was written while she was pregnant with her daughter, and was written about her. Give it a listen if you want to happy-cry, it's great.

As for actual sad songs... Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" is always a great one.

"Hello" is a really good one. I also like the song of the same name by Adele.

And "Everytime" gets me... every time.

Both Hellos are great. I'm surprised Britney made such an amazing mellow song considering she did all those upbeat dance songs. I also like I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman, but I usually listen to that one during the daytime on a quiet day.

Any Lana Del Rey song can be a sad or happy-cry song.
Some more Avril Lavigne songs that fit are

Alice
Head Above Water
Imagine (John Lennon cover)
Innocence
Keep Holding On
Nobody's Home
When You're Gone
Wish You Were Here

"Nobody's Home" is a total tear-jerker. Probably my favorite song from her. Between the post-grunge sound of it and the lyrical and music video theme, it's one of her deepest songs on arguably her best album. But man does it makes me depressed.

On that same album is another similar one- "Fall to Pieces", easily another favorite and extremely overrated because apparently it was gonna be the fifth single and the music video was cancelled. A rare CD single for it did exist, on eBay it can fetch like $500! That price would make my wallet fall to pieces!

A lot of people were tepid about her third album, but "Innocence" is easily a standout and great song. Could've been a hit for her. That album had the wrong singles released honestly.

Turangaa_Maax We have the same sense of sad.

Evanescence as a band typically produces songs that just have a melancholy feel to them, but I think a major factor has to go to Amy Lee's vocals. Her voice is still one of the most beautiful I've ever heard, which, in my opinion, makes every word that she sings that much more sad.

- Without You - for KING & COUNTRY (especially with the context)
- Need You More - for KING & COUNTRY (again, especially with context)
- Balloons - MandoPony
- Nothing Can Hurt Me - MandoPony
- You Are A Memory - Message To Bears (I got emotional just writing the name out... Wow)
- Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
- Cold - Jorge Mendez
- Pieces - Red
- Saturn - Sleeping At Last
- Nine - Sleeping At Last
- Already Gone - Sleeping At Last
- Uneven Odds - Sleeping At Last
- Light - Sleeping At Last (happy-cry)
- Life - Sleeping At Last (happy-cry)
- Amnesia - Gavin Mikhail
- Iridescent - Gavin Mikhail
- To Build A Home - The Cinematic Orchestra
