"Psycho" Original song of Leon Payne in 1969, but the cover version by Teddy Thompson(Son of Richard&Linda Thompson) became soooo unuttered depressive and sad, massive sould attack! Appeared in the soundtrack of movie [Psycho] in 1999.

A tie , for me : " If You Could Read My Mind" and "The Ballad of The Edmond Fitzgerald" both by Gordon Lightfoot -- ok, and no Dylanesque rock/folk debates, please ! ::

"when you reach the part where the heartache comes

the hero would be me

But heros often fail

And you won't read that book again

Because the ending's just too hard to take" :(

Wild Horses - Rolling Stones

Nan, agree totally...

All the "Berlin" album by Lou Reed... he´s even got a "sad song"...

"Sortly like a soap opera", Steve Forbert, is very sad.

"Drive", by The cars, is so sad and so beautifull... I love it...

"The Famous final scene", Bob seger...

I wonder if I didn´t post this already... :stars:

of course I would pick

Tears in Heaven?Eric Clapton (it was my lullaby when I was little)

and most of you don't think of Avril as rock but she has some sad songs, like

Slipped Away (this song was dedicated to her grandfather. They had a very strong bond and when he died, she wrote this song about her sadness)

or

Nobody's Home (don't know much about this one)

~Lizzie :( ( :rockon: )
