    Saddest Song, Ever?

    My vote is split between these two:

    Mama Hated Diesels - Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen
    "Well my dog died yesterday, and left me quite alone..."


    Sun Shone Lightly - Pure Prairie League

    "I don't know if I want to go on living
    I don't think that I can even try..."

    Killer song hey?
    Great article about the writing and recording of it here

    Here's a nice version, by Ian Moss, he's more usually associated with tearing it up with a Strat playing much heavier stuff than this, but he regards this as one of his most favourite songs
