Not a "sad" tune, by any stretch of the imagination. But - for me - still weepy greatness from Saint-Saens:

Softly Awakes My Heart

This also gets the tear ducts going as well:

Aimee Mann - Wise Up

Stops me in my tracks every time, probably do to its use in Magnolia where I first heard it.
Definitely agree with this. The song on its own is pretty good but the way it was used in Magnolia was pure genius. I normally can't stand Tom Cruise but he absolutely blew me away in that film.

I think 'Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space' by Spiritualized has to be my personal sad song 'favourite' (if that isn't a bit weird). I was listening to the album a lot around the time my first serious girlfriend dumped me when I was 18. bh!

Not very original, sorry, but "Abide With Me" always gets me going - played at a funeral service when my best friend died. cry

Also, and I have no idea why, "Motorcycle Emptiness" by the Manic Street Preachers is a song I find sad.

Alter Bridge - In Loving Memory

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcQ3iegpZTc

Written by the guitarist of the band after his mother died I have no idea how he ever manages to perform it, this song nearly killed me after my dad died, yet ultimately went on to help me deal with things.

Probably best not to click the link if you've lost someone recently.

Ricky Valance

Not so much sad, but certainly melancholy Simple Minds

Probably sad due to the reason behind the release of this cover version Roxy Music (Excuse the advert at the beginning!)

Yeah its hard to believe how good Cruise was in Magnolia! One of the best films I've ever seen, never got the recognition it deserved for some reason.

Whole heartedly agree. fantastic song. Really gotten into Myles Kennedy's stuff lately.

Another suggestion, Bon Iver - Skinny Love. Listen to this live version, a mixture of anger, frustration and fear...
