Listening to my IPod tonight and I've got k.d lang and Roy Orbison's Cryin' on right now and I thought wow this is just the saddest love song. But there are a few more.

My List:

Crying--Roy Orbinson or Roy Orbinson and k.d. lang
He Stopped Loving Her Today--George Jones
I Will Always Love You--Dolly Parton, Dolly & Vince Gill or Whitney Houston

And of course The King--Are You Lonesome Tonight

What's your list?

I recently rediscovered the song called The Ballad of Curtis Lowe by Lynyrd Skynyrd. I know it's not a love song, per se, but that guy (the narrator, I guess you would call it--Ronnie Van Zant I think) loved that Curt and was sad when he died.

Cause, I mean, he was the finest picker to ever play the blues, after all...

I like Are You Lonesome Tonight, too, Laurie.

3CsMommy--I didn't know Last Kiss was a cover, I've only ever heard the Pearl Jam rendition. I still can't listen to the whole thing and haven't downloaded it even though I think it's good. It's just too sad for me.

I had a Loreena McKennitt cd when I was 15, maybe. I remember the song The Highway Man and it made me cry every time I listened to it. I don't know what happened to the cd though it's probably lost in my room or something.

Other than that and Johnny Cash, I have no idea what any of these other songs mentioned are. I haven't even heard of half these people...

Thanks! I never knew it was a cover! After listening to NIN version, I think I like Johnny's version a little better though, as I am not a big fan of NIN..

Some more sad ones: Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera
Come to Me, Fantine's Death from Les Miserables
Castle on a Cloud from Les Miserables
Circle by Harry Chapin

You'll Be in My Heart by Phil Collins

This is because it makes me think my kitty Soleil that I lost a few years ago. Soleil was my soulmate and a lot of the lyrics are very meaningful for me
