    Much the same for me.


    Most of the songs off Nine Inch Nails- Still album, with the last few instrumentals being the most powerful, as far as sad songs go

    The "Ententanz" (Duckdance???).
    It makes me so sad that something so stupid became such a success.
    And there are many more...

    Tell me if you're not moved by him....re-sing over and over again...

    man, that video gave me the chills; he exerts a lot of emotion in that song. Bic Runga does an excellent cover of his song.

    here's one to suggest:

    I Will Wait For You -- Connie Francis

    i listened to it recently in a Futurama episode, "Jurassic Bark". near the end, if don't cry during that, you're not human.

    Barber's Adagio for Strings...

    Still Life by Opeth, the whole album.

    Also, it may or may not have been mentioned already, but I feel that Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" is quite a dark, sad song.

    Norther - Omen

    it just is to me

    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World

    Once you've reached certain age and know what it's like having and losing ones you love. His interpretation is so sad yet so beautiful to me.

    Yes! Yes! YES!

    a perfect sonnet - bright eyes
    greeaattt song, very pessimistic lyrics with harsh melancholy vocals.

    something in the way - nirvana
    used in the film jarhead, possibly the gloomiest song ive ever heard, strongly recommended

    3 libras - a perfect circle
    a poetic retelling of an unfortunate seduction - bright eyes
    poison oak - bright eyes

    ....maybe just bright eyes in general

    Kansas - Dust In The Wind
