Also: Nothing Came Out by the Moldy Peaches. There’s something about that song that just tugs at the heart strings, and I think everyone can relate to the sentiment.

Where I Stood by Missy Higgins has been making me tear up lately.
The Live at VH1 version of Have You Seen Me Lately by Counting Crows. And Colorblind by them too.

It’s silly, but I find John Lennon’s Happy Christmas incredibly sad.

For me it was “Nikita” by Elton John, which is one of the most powerful songs I’ve ever heard and meant a lot to me when I heard it (still living in a world divided by the Berlin Wall).

Today of course it has become obsolete, as millions of Nikitas have crossed the Iron Curtain to work in brothels in Amsterdam (and that’s the lucky ones). Which I guess makes it even sadder if you think about it.

Some Devil on Dave Matthew’s solo CD of the same name. This song was featured in the movie 21 Grams, one of my favorite movies ever. Some of the saddest lyrics:

Feel heavy like floating… At the bottom of the sea
