Ah well, I think it's one of the most beautiful songs that I've ever heard.

There are several "candidates" to me. It's funny, but it seems as if I unconsciously separated the (sad) love songs from the rest. I haven't chosen a love song yet.

Anyway, there's actually a particular kind of sadness, a profound feeling which goes beyond a love sickness, a kind of "vital sadness". I guess there are several songs about it, but this one has moved me: La vida mata ("Life Kills") by Diego Vasallo. Its strongest point is at the lyrics. I've translated them (as well as I could) because I think they are unusually brilliant. Pure poetry.



"Blows hurt,
life kills,
time heals,
days go by.

And upon beginning this game
I already have a soul drifting along.

Lullabies for adults
crossed by the years,
carrying the flower of disappointment
tattooed in their gloomy melodies.

And there are the shades,
and there is the oblivion,
and this infinite
lost time.

And there is the love,
and there are the kisses,
and a mundane bone-pain.

The wind insists, as always,
on reminding me of the sounds
from the stubborn throbbing of things
from worlds still unknown.

Grief hurts,
life kills
with broken dreams
and silver bullets.

September comes just like that
and it dissolves in your gaze.

Bons vivants with no life,
in love
with the stars' pale light,
scatter poems in the night
and then try to remove their traces."


Maybe you don't grasp the feeling if you haven't gone through it before (for instance, due to a dysthymia), but artistically speaking, the song expresses it in a perfect way. Just look at the title: LIFE KILLS. Could there be anything sadder (and also more poetic) than that?

Fast Car by Tracy Chapman is awesome.

One song that always gets me is The Background by Third Eye Blind. Me and my ex dated for over 2.5 years and it was a really passionate, but really messy relationship. This song would always make me cry like a pussy.



I think its about someone passing or something (not really sure to be honest)... but a few lines always got me crying for months after we were done.

"The plans I made still have you in them"
"and im hangin on your words like I always used to do
"I felt you long after we were through:

This song just really spoke to me at the time, it felt like a lot of what I was going through. **** now I'm probably gonna start crying again lol

For the longest time I thought "Yesterday" by the Beatles was the saddest song I'd ever heard. Now I'm not so sure. Maybe it just lost it's effect. It used to make me cry every time. Maybe it's just the situation I'm in. Anyways.

Janis Joplin - Mercedes Benz
Brand New - The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot

If it makes you less sad
I will die by your hand
I hope you find out what you want
I already know what I am

And if it makes you less sad
we'll start talking again
And you can tell me how vile
I already know that I am

I'll grow old and start acting my age
I'll be a brand new day
in a life that you hate
A crown of gold
A heart that's harder than stone
And it hurts a whole lot
but it's missed when it's gone

Call me a safe bet
I'm betting I'm not
I'm glad that you can forgive
I'm only hoping as time goes
you can forget
