    I think this would be a good place to start this thread.. I listen to a lot of depressing music, trying to pick the saddest song would be hard for me.

    Right now I'm thinking For My Fallen Angel by My Dying Bride is one of the most heart wrenching songs I've ever heard...

    Quiet World is up there with the saddest for me. My Wine in Silence by My Dying Bride is very sad..
    The saddest song right now however must be Burden by Opeth.:cry:

    Also, check out "Stairs of Fire" from the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack.

    Blackfield - Lullaby
    Katatonia - Gone & Quiet World & Gates of Bereavement
    Opeth - Hope Leaves & A Fair Judgement & Face of Melinda
    Johnny Cash - Hurt

    and many many others, those just jumped to my mind right now. If I would have to choose one from those it would probably me Gone by Katatonia.

    The Cure and the album Disintegration is pretty damn depressing. Also, Pornography is pretty dark and bleak. Ah, I love them both.

    Johnny Cash - Hurt

    There's lots of songs from Katatonia, Anathema and so on that's full of melancholy but Johnny Cash's Hurt is the saddest. There's just something so touching in old man singing such a sad song full of memories close to end of his days.

    I think Trent Reznor's version of Hurt was better.

    They are both very great versions, I would say that I like a bit more the Johnny Cash's version because its simplicity. But It wont top the live version on Hurt by NiN.

    October Tide- Losing Tommorow
    Katatonia- Quiet World, Deadhouse, Gone, Sulfur... so many songs from BMD-LFDGD era.
    Anathema- TEMPORARY PEACE... holy shit. Probably gets my vote for most beautiful song ever. :cry: Also: Inner Silence, Fragile Dreams, Radiance,
    Slowdive- Catch the Breeze, Country Rain, She Calls, Melon Yellow.
    Porcupine Tree- Trains, A Smart Kid, Stop Swimming, Fadeaway.

    So many more...
