    Loss, distance, time, things that could have been said, cry in your beer,,,

    What sad songs really move you on a personal level.

    There are many but if you could pick from your top faves and post it on this thread then the thread will work and yield many beautiful songs.

    My first choice is a song that actually caused me to tear up, it is so honest and real, and the fact she is recording with a room recorder and not directly into a mic testifies to her beautiful voice.
    And huge shout out to Willie Nelson for his great songwriting.



    Ok, open the floodgates, bring on the tears, what is one of your favorite sad songs???

    To me, the saddest song is "It's Over", by Roy Orbison. I can barely stand to listen to it.
