ROCK'S GREATEST SAD SONG??

Recommended Posts

Nancye1962, "Tender" by Blur is a lovely song, one of the best they have ever done IMO, and when it has such a personal meaning to you, you can't help but make it your favourite.

As the lyrics go 'Come on, get through it', it's a very appropriate song.

Much love xx

Nancye, sorry for not minding my own business, but somehow I lived a similar experience and I hope your daughter has another baby, it brings back life to the family...

I don't know why but i find Fear Of The Dark-Iron Maiden really sad. It could be just because the beginning is so beautiful with all the ooooh's but i know it as "the pretty song" which annoys my friend who is a hardcore Iron Maiden fan greatly.

I am the man who walks alone...

The 'oooohs' are pretty cool and I suppose they are a little sad ~ one of my favourite Iron Maiden songs :bow:

The lyrics of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' I find quite sad.

Somebody please tell me that I?m dreaming

It?s not so easy to stop from screaming

But words escape me when I try to speak

Tears they flow but why am I crying

After all I am not afraid of dying

Don?t believe that there is never an end

Squonk by Genisis is sad. Read the sad tale...

Like father like son

Not flesh nor fish nor bone

A red rag hangs from an open mouth.

Alive at both ends but a little dead in the middle,

A-tumbling and a-bumbling he will go.

All the King's horses and all the King's men

Could never put a smile on that face.

He's a sly one, he's a shy one

Wouldn't you be too.

Scared to be left all on his own.

Hasn't a, hasn't a friend to play with, the Ugly Duckling

The pressure on, the bubble will burst before our eyes.

All the while in perfect time

His tears are falling on the ground

BUT IF YOU DON'T STAND UP YOU DON'T STAND A CHANCE.

Go a little faster now, you might get there in time.

Mirror mirror on the wall,

His heart was broken long before he ever came to you.

Stop your tears from falling,

The trail they leave is very clear for all to see at night

all to see at night.

In season, out of season

What's the difference when you don't know the reason.

In one hand bread, the other a stone.

The Hunter enters the forest.

All are not huntsmen who can blow the huntsman's horn

By the look of this one you've not got much to fear.

Here I am, I'm very fierce and frightening

Come to match my skill to yours.

Now listen here, listen to me, don't you run away now

I am a friend, I'd really like to play with you.

Making noises my little furry friend would make

I'll trick him, then I'll kick him into my sack.

You better watch out... You better watch out.

I've got you, I've got you, you'll never get away.

Walking home that night

The sack across my back, the sound of sobbing on my shoulder.

When suddenly it stopped,

I opened up the sack, all that I had

A pool of bubbles and tears - JUST A POOL OF TEARS.

All in all you are a very dying race

Placing trust upon a cruel world.

You never had the things you thought you should have had

And you'll not get them now,

And all the while in perfect time

Your tears are falling on the ground.

The Squonk is of a very retiring disposition and due to its ugliness, weeps constantly. It is easy prey for hunters who simply follow a tear-stained trail. When cornered it will dissolve itself into tears.

Not necessarily sad songs but it usually works. If I had to name a classic sad rock song though I think 'Babe, I'm gonna leave you' by Led Zeppelin is ingeniously romantic and melancholic at the same time. I'm not the biggest Led Zep fan but what a song.
