Been done before I believe...but these are the top 5 saddest songs that come to mind...
1. Think Of Laura (Christopher Cross)
This one puts a lump in my throat. Based on a real life tragedy.
2. Patches (Clarence Carter)
All the crap life threw at this poor guy.
3. Taxi (Harry Chapin)
How life can take sad and unfortunate turns. The sequel released several years later flip flops the scenario...with the same result. Could do a movie based on the story.
4. Living In Shame (Diana Ross & The Supremes)
Need to respect your mom.
5. American Pie...aka The Day The Music Died (Don Mclean)
Saddest day in Rock & Roll
What tear jerkers am I missing?
