Gets me every time.
Yeah. He hit a homerun with that collection. And perfect for the times.

EDIT: Kudos to the poster on page 14 who beat me to it.
And a few by Glen Hansard.
Cat's In The Cradle
Oh man, you nailed it for me. I grew up watching this cartoon with my family. I have such a clear memory of being at my parent's house later as a young adult and this was playing. My mother was watching it and I asked, "Does this bring back memories for you?" and she said yes, but that it made her very sad. My God, we had no idea how much more sadness was coming.
'tis the season (I'm so sorry)
Since my dad passed I can't watch this one.
The sadness of the subject matter and execution mix with the depression of listening to the first mediocre Husker Du album.
In light of the holidays, my first thought was:
Scott Weiland's version was very heartfelt and heavy. Really brought out the melancholy in that song.
also absolutely crushed by Bon Iver. Makes that song so so sad.
It's a tie!
Saw a handful of posts for John Prine’s “Sam Stone” which I agree is very sad. But his song “Souviners” hits closer to home for me and gets my vote for saddest.
“Broken hearts and dirty windows make life difficult to see.
That’s why last night and this morning always look the same to me.”
This one right here.
I almost posted that as well. I love that version, although it's a cover, I think it has a much bigger impact than the original in it's delivery. I still remember hearing it for the first time ages ago. All that 80's 4AD stuff was so great.
Have you heard this one from Brendan Perry and Robin Guthrie?
Dimming of the Day has been depressing me lately
Hard time killing floor blues.
Everybody takes a hit on that one. Rich and poor. Makes things like love seem like something you'll worry about later. You know. After you find food. And maybe a dry place to crash.
