Another Rangerboard-inspired thread is coming your way. The question this time: What is the saddest song you've ever heard?
Mine would have to be "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connell. I remember hearing it for the first time when I was in my single-digits in age. The floodgates were opened, and it still haunts me to this day. (Of course, I'm 19 now and thus man enough to handle the song, but back then... oy it was bad.)
EDIT: Changed title... emotional works

Weird quote of the moment
I was three of the movies before they were dubbed.
Mogwai - Take me somewhere nice.
It just gets to me
"My Immortal" by Evanescence just always makes me teary eyed for some reason...
I second "What a Wonderful World" it never fails to get me upset.
Random Harry Potter Excerpt #3:
"Well, I can certainly see why we're trying to keep them alive." said Malfoy sarcastically. "Who wouldn't want pets that can burn, sting, and suck blood all at once?"
I'll second "My Immortal." I always liked the song, but then it was set as the music for the tribute video for WWE Legend "Classy" Freddie Blassie who died earlier this month at the age of 85. It wasn't written for him, but it just fits him so well. It makes me teary eyed too.Originally Posted by Lunacat

Cats And The Cradle by Cat Steavens

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
Song - Artist
My Immortal - Evanescence
Gortoz A Ran-J'Attends - Danez Prigent & Lisa Gerrard
There are others, of course, but these two are the saddest/most emotional songs I've ever heard.
"He's like you? Do I have time to cover my ears and hide all the food, then?"
I want to seccond My December. I still think it's the best song they've ever donw, and it doesn't even have a real US release, and Reanimation doesn't count.
I always find "Dream On" my Aerosmith to be a pretty emotional song. really can't say why, it just makes me feel something a little more then most other songs.
"Bother" by Stone Sour is a pretty emotional one to.
"So, as my final thought, steal from your parents"-Lewis Black
"I am stretched on your grave" as performed by Dead Can Dance- there's also a version by Kate Rusby that's really good, but Sinead's "original" doesn't come close to DCD's version.
I am stretched on your grave
And will lie there forever
With your hands held in mine
I'd be sure we'd not sever
My apple tree my brightness
'Tis time we were together
For I smell of the earth
And am stained by the weather
When my family thinks
That I'm safe in my bed
From night until morning
I am stretched at your head
Calling out to the air
With tears both hot and wild
Oh I grieve for the girl
That I loved as a child
The priests and the friars
Behold me in dread
Because I still love you
My love and you're dead
I would still be your shelter
From rain and from storm
And with you in your cold grave
I cannot sleep warm
How appropriate. You fight like a cow
I second both "Cats In the Cradle" and "What a Wonderful World". Both of those song really get to me. As for songs that are not listed yet...
"This Side" by Nickel Creek
"Thin Line" by Jurrasic 5
"End of the Tour" by They Might Be Giants
Actually, I believe it was included on the US single release of "In the End." And I heartily agree that it's absolutely the best song they've ever done. The Reanimated version is all right, but nothing can touch the original version. Normally I like Linkin Park more the less I pay attention the lyrics and the more I pay attention to the DJing. With "My December," it's exactly the opposite. Good stuff.Originally Posted by Weatherman
But I definitely have to agree with the person who mentioned Gary Jules' absolutely AMAZING cover of Tears for Fears' "Mad World." It's an excellent song to begin with, but Jules really put his own touch on it and made the mood of the song fit Donnie Darko excellently, which the lyrics already did. Small side note, there's also an alternate version on the soundtrack which is not featured in the movie, it's exactly the same as the movie version except that it has a drum part in addition to the piano. Personally I prefer the movie version, but the alternate version is quite good as well.
"Bright Eyes" - Art Garfunkel
"Be like That"- 3 doors Down
"Here's to the night" -Eve 6
"Departure"- Kenshin instrumental
"Dust in the Wind"- Kanses
"Sound the Bugle" - Brian Adams
"If Only Tears Could Bring you Back" - Midnight Sons
"The Time Has Come" (from "Pikachu's Goodbye")
"Tears of Life" - Pokemon the 1st movie score
"Where Have All The Cowboys Gone"- Paula Cole
"Anna Lisa"- Prozzak
"New your City"- Prozzak
"You'll Be In My Heart" - Phil Colins
"Stop Crying Your Heart Out"- Oasis
"don't Go Away"- Oasis
"Princess Monokoke"- Princess Monokoke
"Here With Me" - Dido
"Leaving On a Jet Plane"- Peter, Paul & Mary (I think)
Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it. - Lenny Bruce
Three Doors Down - When I'm Gone
Johnny Rzeznik - I'm Still Here
Paparoach - Last Resort (at least to me it is..)
"But I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly, because you tread on my dreams." - William Butler Yeats
"You can't find the world's perspective in reflection, but you can find yourself."
"We came, we saw, we conquered, we... woke up!"
Hmm for saddest, I would say Our Lady Peace's "Blister" or "Thief" from their "Happiness is..." album, which was a pretty sad album throughout. Out of the two, I'd pick "Blister" because Raine's delivery is very pained and very emotional throughout the song, like he's just about to breakdown. "Thief" isn't quite as sad based solely on the music, but seeing the video and knowing the subject matter of the song amplifies it.
For emotional songs, there's a bunch that come to mind. Currently sticking out, I'd say:
U2's "With or Without You"
any Matthew Good Song
The Tea Party's "Heaven Coming Down"
Canadiens seem to be pretty good at writing melodramatic songs.
Green Day- "Good Riddance"
R. Kelly- "Just Like That"
Terry Jacks- "Seasons in the Sun"
Andrew Lloyd Webber- "Memories"
Boys II Men- "So Hard to Say Goodbye"
U2- "With Or Without You"
