Stay on these Roads by A-ha, written after Pal Waaktaar's child was still-born!

Very moving song!

Has to be 'Hope there's someone' by Antony & The Johnsons for me, actually most of their stuff is heartbreaking!!

Also Damien Rice and 'Cold Water'.......very moving.

Although it is V cheesy - Ronan Keating - If tomorrow never comes. I like his version better then the original.

Holding back the years - Simply Red. Especially when I watch the episode of OFAH where Rodney gets married & Del has been beat up. Del is left on his own in the reception hall as this song is playing.

One of the last times I saw my friends dad alive ( He had cancer), we were watching celebrity stars in their eyes (again ) and the girl who played Chloe in Emmerdale sang 'Time to say goodbye'. We all sat there & wept quietly as we knew nothing could be done for him. Still chokes me when I hear it now.

Israel Kamakawiwo Ole - Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What A Wonderful World

http://youtube.com/watch?v=2A2Jt4WOxN8

Not really the best video for this track but it's the song that counts... probably good for a funeral.

There are many...but the first that comes to mind for me would be The Cranberries "No Need To Argue".

Id always thought this was a very sad song...but i saw a film a few years ago and this song was played at the end at a very emotional and tragic part of the film which made it even more sad

I'd go with 'Cancer' absolutely.

And Muse - Muscle Museum makes me cry.

In Shrek, it doesn't sound like Rufus's version that was used. The voice sounds totally different. Any idea who's version was actually used?

EDIT - Never mind, after some searching, I found that it was actually John Cale who performed it in the film, but Rufus' version was put on the soundtrack.

I prefer Leonard Cohen's original 'Hallelujah.'

'Wish You Were Here' (Pink Floyd) gets me, as does 'Song to the Siren' by Tim Buckley. I also shed a tear to 'New Dawn Fades' by Joy Division, and 'Crowds' by Bauhaus, and about a million other songs...

Kate Bush - This Womans Work

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Hm901CXujEg

Also, a third rate cover by someone called Maxwell, who really should consider giving up the day job based on this effort. The Maxwell cover seems to be getting a fair bit of airplay in US dramas, God knows why... the original is 100 times better. The blokes got a truly annoying voice - could probably shatter glass.

Drugs Don't Work always makes me cry ever since somebody told me it was about Richard Ashcroft's father. Actually, I think lots of Ashcroft's songs have a very beautiful and melancholic quality.
Karen Carpenter's is the most sad-sounding vocal I've ever heard - even when she's singing quite cheesy songs.
I'd also nominate Hurt by Johnny Cash.

Does anyone know or remember The Deal by Pat Campbell? Not really a 'song' as the lyrics were spoken but certainly emotional.

Heaven - Bryan Adams

and the cover versions are sad too


She's Gone - Hall and Oates
(also done by Tavares)

I compiled a list of sad songs when Diana Spencer died, they played a fair few on the radio at that time.
