    What is it? Give me a list of them. I know what I would pick, but I'm sure someone else will have a few to put mine to shame.

    I'm fairly certain that Deadhouse by Katatonia is the saddest song ever.

    I'll Be There by The Escape Club (Dollars and Sex) (My local radio station did this as a tribute song with clips from 9/11 mixed into the track. It had me crying each time it came on the air, and I ended up buying the original album a few years ago.)

    Suspended In Time by Olivia Newton-John (Xanadu soundtrack)
    Don't Walk Away by ELO (Xanadu soundtrack)
    Hello by Evanescence (Fallen)

    You Can Still Be Free by Savage Garden (Affirmation)

    Hi, my name is LE, and I'm suitably depressed. >.>

    Country music - believe it or not - can be much more tragic and emotional than "emo" music. It's probably because the sadder tunes hit closer to home for more people than a song about committing suicide.

    Who here doesn't have a close relative or friend who can't be around when you need them? Who here hasn't lost a loved one to a car wreck, military service, or even terrorist activities?

    Dudes, country music is much more suited for a tear jerker. ESPECIALLY the music videos.

    And yes, My Heart will Go On is one of the top saddest songs.

    I don't like the band, but The Burning Red by Machinehead has to be the saddest song I've ever heard.

    Nightwish - Everdream, Angels Fall First
    Nobue Uematsu (FFVIII) - Eyes on Me

    EDIT: Let's not forgot Gravenimage from Sonata Arctica, also super sad!

    Saddest song ever... probably Casimir Pulaski Day, by Sufjan Stevens. Its happy chords just add to how depressing it really is.

    Woah, totally forgot Tears In Heaven.

    I dunno, Aries' theme isn't really sad to me. Probably because someone spoiled the game for me, and I knew that she would kick the bucket.

    In addition, I've never heard it orchestrated. Those midi files in ff7 do not help to dramatize anything.
