Media Center>Is this the saddest song....
Ubeja Vontell 10:05 PM 04-24-2020
....ever recorded?




Now most everyone has heard that song, it is well known.

There are a ton of old blues and country songs pretty damn sad, hell....."took a Smith and Wesson and blew out my brains" how about...."he threw carbolic acid in my face".....then there is..."blood, blood, blood, blood"....remember Ruby took her love to town, old Hank was so lonesome he could cry, J.Frank Wilson in "Last Kiss".

What is your saddest song?

Kind of an emo / gayish song, but it's sad nonetheless. Not the saddest, but sad.

I will give you "Tears in Heaven" - Very Sad

But (at least to me) this is the saddest song ever written......

Holy Guacamole,
This song is like a novel.
So to summarize, some fat ugly waitress is serving a "little" man and he explains how he banged a hot chick once, she left, and then the fat broad and the "little" man hook up.
Little dude ends up getting his dinky stinky at the end, I don't see how this is a sad song. Is it sad because the waitress was fat & ugly? (Wait, that actually makes a lot of sense...:-))

It's classic Harry Chapin. He was a story teller. most of his songs took a "tad" longer than the 3:00 radio stuff. :-)

The song itself, if you read between the lines, is about "losers". No hope, no future and just trying to get by. Misery loves company.

Anyway - that has always been my take on it.....that's the beauty of music. It's the listener who determines what they hear - no right or wrong.

This is not so much sad, as it's unique and somewhat original considering the words pertain to today's environment.

Funny story. My buddy got tickets from this company the coop does business with. Anyway my buddy was talking shop with the dude with the tickets so Iím sitting there and the dudes wife and some other chick are talking about music. They like Luke Bryant, Jason Aldeen and other hacky fools. They saw them blah blah blah. Whatever. Then the dudes wife starts talking about these long haired guys that sat behind them at Kauffman. They said they were in a band and played Kauffman the night before. It was something weird. Like whiskey something.

So I chimed in. Whiskey Meyers? You should look them up. They can jam.

These 2 gals looked at me like I was from Mars or something. LOL. Fine. Just keep listening to garbage ass Luke Bryant. Do you Man.

The saddest song is the one that wakes you up on Monday morning.

Many may disagree because...well, it's metal. But this song by Pantera about a friend in a catatonic state always got me.

I was into Taking Back Sunday in College (Many moon ago). I recently dug up some of their stuff that aged pretty well while I was bored on the tractor. Poking around their albums, this one came up. Taking Back Sunday got a lot wrong, but this one hit some notes. Pretty heavy shit. Probably not the saddest ever, but well done.
