Anything the Grateful Dead ever recorded makes me want to kill myself.
Jackson Browne - For a Dancer
i'm sure it's been posted but i can't be bothered to trawl through 15 pages of posts:
Dm - the saddest of all the keys..
Dragons live for ever but not so little boys
1952 Vincent Black Lightening- Richard Thompson
This Woman’s Work- Kate Bush
And yes, Puff the Magic Dragon, Two Little Boys
Mike and the mechanics - In the Living Years.
I can really relate to the last verse...tears me up all the time as I wasn’t there. Weird thing is that 5 minutes after my dad passed, my wife’s best friend gave birth in the same hospital and I can see some similarities in both of them

'Time' by The Alan Parsons Project
...and just about anything from Dan Fogelberg.
This sweet old world:
Without a doubt, “The Last Leviathan”. Just brutal.
Lightnin Hopkins version of Trouble in Mind
I guess for me it's the "Loved & Lost" songs
A Tender Lie
When I Call Your Name
Ghost in This House
Not only THE saddest song ever, but by far and away THE most famous sad song of all time.
Paul Westerberg has written many that might qualify, but I think this one takes the cake:
I was/am a huge Daniel Johnston fan. And this song of his just kills me.
There are 2-3 that come to mind, in no particular order...
Sade - Pearls:
(every grain of rice wrapped up... pearls for her little girl)
Chris Botti - Same Girl:
(has the best tone of any trumpet player I have ever heard... usually I can't stand trumpet music, until I heard what Chris Botti could do with one)
What became the theme song to my short-lived marriage and divorce was a song that's been mentioned lot's of times already... Bonnie does it best...
Bonnie Raitt - I Can't Make You Love Me
(I was in so much pain that I didn't even bother to get a lawyer for the divorce. I just figured it would be another 5 years of fighting over every nickel, and my peace was worth more than that. In my mind, I just pushed the whole table full of poker chips over to her, gave her everything, and never once after that ever saw her unfaithful ass again in my life... to me that was worth a million bucks)
And I suppose...
Sarah McLachlan - (In the Arms of the) Angel
(I tried to make it as a musician, I really tried. Living in the "stark cold hotel room", it just wasn't meant to be. Somebody that once loved me told me this was my theme song... finally went back to the regular work force just to pay off credit cards, thinking I was going to go back to music shortly after and it just never happened. Too damned old and too damned disabled now. Maybe I'll play in church or something, but will never be a full-time professional musician again.)
Lesson learned... don't ever give up on your dreams, credit cards aren't worth it.
Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
