Another song to my list:
Hardly Getting Over It - Husker Du

It's a pretty sad song, esp when you read the lyrics to it

I always choke up when I hear 'Tender' by Blur.

NIN did do the original. Johnny Cash did the cover.

Wilson isn't the original either.
Wayne Chochran is the one who first wrote and performed Last Kiss.

Hurt, I suppose you're talking about? Adding that as well, if I haven't already. Prefer Cash's version.

Here's one from the "old school" files:

"Toby" by the Chi-Lites

It tells the story of a college freshman coming home for spring break to learn his high school sweetback has died.

#9. Staind - Epiphany

#10. Seether - Broken


Not really listed in order of favorite songs....I just listed what came to mind.

And I could pick too many for Van Morrison...
Broken, Epiphany and Glycerine are also up there on my sad songs list.
Good choices. <3
