    Default The saddest song?



    I'm curious how this divides people, if it does at all. On the one hand, it can be a rather bitterly maudlin piece, filled with sadness and longing; yet on the other it's a beautiful, tranquil piece of music. What is it to you?
    Know I'm mistyped?

    You mean piece of music, then.

    Saddest piece of music...always tends to be bitter sweet. Overstated sadness kills it but if sadness is being covered up by something less...sad, it becomes that much more powerful.

    Objectively speaking...well, there is no objective. "Tears in Heaven" is pretty sad in feel and more so for the content. There are too many sad pieces that are successfully moving to pick one, really. Some seem sadder than they really are simply because they are so moving. I don't think I could pick any one that stands out from the rest, to me. After all, some relate directly to context.

    But for most moving compositions, I have to think to the game Mother 3. The music is very good at provoking precise emotions (though to get the experience, you have to actually be there playing the game):

    i.e.:







    Chopin's Etude in E Major also comes to mind (I am particular to the version(s) used in the Fullmetal Alchemist OST).
    Time spent with cats is time well spent.

    There is an urban myth that this song lead to multiple suicides after being listened to.
    It's dubbed "The Suicide Song", because of that.

    When I first heard "Waltzing Mathilda" I burst into tears because it sounded like someone walking off to be hanged. Unbearable.
    Reason is a whore.

    And I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.
