User Topic: What's your favorite Sad Love Song?

I will admit, sometimes, I make myself a little more sadder to music. Although I hate to do it, crying always makes me feel better. Haven't cried in a while...

I used to have a playlist called "runny mascara" on my ipod. Then realized I hadn't played it in a while.
Here's some of the songs:

Wish you were here by Pink Floyd.
Let down by Radiohead.
Love is a losing game by Amy Winehouse.
Wake up alone by Amy Winehouse.
Stepping Stone by Duffy.
Video of When you were young by the killers.(Always makes me cry when I watch it)

What are your sad songs?

Recently it's been Pink's "Give Me A Reason".

D-day(s),after years of TT and Gaslighting was Labor Day Weekend 2012, continuing for a week after. *Dammit! More TT 3/9/13
Really trending toward D- planning about it is my "happy place" now.

"Eye in the sky" by Alan Parsons tops my current list.

Don't think sorry's easily said
Don't try turning tables instead
You've taken lots of chances before
But I'm not gonna give anymore
Don't ask me
That's how it goes
Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin

Lately it's been "Eye" by Smashing Pumpkins. Before that, "Another Sad Love Song" by Toni Braxton, also "Angel From Montgomery" (the version with Bonnie Raitt sings with John Prine). Surely there are more... been trying to listen to music that's not about love or relationships or sex... It helps get my head in a different place.

Ooh, "Wish You Were Here" is a great one.

This isn't really sad, but it kind of made me chuckle at the time.

"One is the Loneliest Number" by Three Dog Night.

I heard it on the radio shortly after our separation. I was alone in the car and the song came on, and I said out loud, "Shut up, Three Dog Night," and changed the station.

"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear."

'You lost me' Christina Aguilera. The 'you couldn't keep your hands to yourself' gets me every time.

'You just keep living, until you are alive again'

Wish You Were Here is the ringtone when H calls me.

Just Give Me a Reason is my big song right now. Also high on my list is You Were Mine by the Dixie Chicks.

Not a love song, but Wayman's Song/Crying for Me by Toby Keith and The House That Built Me by Miranda Lambert get me every time.

I don't know if these are sad, but I love adam lamberts what do you want from me (or whatever the name is... I only hear it on the radio)

I also like one direction all the right moves. I don't think it means what I thought it did, but when we were divorcing, the song went, "Everyone knows we're going down" and that was sort of my internal theme song LOL =)

There grew a little flower 'neath a great oak tree.
When the tempest 'gan to lower, little heeded she.
Sing Hey, lack-a-day
Sing Hey, lack-a-day
Sing Hey, lack-a-day, Let the tears fall free
For the pretty little flower and her great oak tree.

The song is from Gilbert & Sullivan's Ruddigore, and it brought tears to my eyes before the A. I can't even type the words without tears.

Hoping to help me feel better and not knowing the lyrics, shortly after D-Day my W asked me where the record was so she could play one of my favorite songs. I explained it wasn't a good choice, given where we were.
