Great choice. I also think Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car" is maybe one of my favoriete sad songs. It's so full of hope but you know the whole time it's false hope. "I'll find work and you'll get promoted..." etc. Nope. Not how it works. You're destined for lower-middle class, girl.

Lost Cause is so good.

Also, just listened to "The River" by Bruce Springsteen on the random. I almost forgot how moribidly depressing yet beautiful a union card and a wedding coat could be.

Re: My Favorite Sad Songs (and Yours)

Some good suggestions here, surprised Elliott Smith has only been mentioned once.

Kinda hard to pick one song from him as most of his stuff is pretty depressing, but this one is especially miserable.

Elliott Smith - Twilight
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJthA4l8S5U


Songs about dead kids are usually sad too
Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AscPOozwYA8

Sad story, great great great song
Richard Thompson - Vincent Black Lightning
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxKTzwaEa2o

Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KK1UjkXDAJA (Great live version)


Bonnie Prince Billy - I See a Darkness
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYBVAfvRpps

Kermit the Frog - It's Not Easy Being Green

I have a feeling Tracy Chapman found her way out of the lower middle class.
