Here is a list of the ten saddest songs for those days when you need them.
“Everyday is the same, we wake up, emotionless drones, as we follow our daily routines, everything is planned even our feelings, we all conform, try to fit in with everyone else.
it all seems really pointless to her, as she believes dying would be better than this empty life, or maybe because it would be something new, a way to escape the repetition. There’ll only ever be today, never a tomorrow. as children, we’re taught to sit and listen, the way all children should, to feel happy on our birthday, it just shows how controlled we are, living with one track minds, wanting more but never going for it, always going around in circles makes it a very, very mad world.”
“This is a very sad song. One minute, you’re happily in love with someone, enjoying the relationship. The next thing you know, you’re wondering how things went wrong, distressed. I can relate, somewhat. But, in the end, there is hope…”I believe in yesterday”. Sometimes, I think hope is all you’ve got. Amazing song. Uplifting and depressing at the same time. “
“It’s about a father who was always too busy to spend time with his son, even though his son always promises to grow up just like him. Till one day many years later he sees his son acting the same way he used to, not making time for his family at all, and realizes too late that he really did grow up just like his father…”
“Very sad song that makes you think of your life in a new light. All your worries are nothing but Dust in the wind. Nothing really matters.”
“No doubt, this is a beautiful song. It’s like a tonic and has an almost sedative like effect on me any time I listen to it. The gentle, beautiful melody and religious references make it seem almost harmless. The genius of this song is that there are so many darker elements of love hiding in plain sight right there in the lyrics.”
“The title track, “how to save a life,” was inspired by slade’s experience as a mentor to a crack addicted teen. “I was a sheltered suburban kid when I met this guy. He was a recovering addict, coming out of a really tough teenage life. Thankfully, he was on his way out of that life, so he was able to really look back with some objectivity. The song is more of a memoir about his slow motion descent and all the relationships he lost along the way.” destined to be one of the band’s greatest hits, slade isn’t worried about getting tired of performing the song: “it is the easiest one for me to sing every night. I constantly get emails from people who relate to it.”
“He’s trying to say that he was a bad person for hurting his love that he cared about a lot….He quoted “I never meant to do those things to you”…”I’m sorry that I hurt You” He’s sorry that she had to be the one he did it to and now he is mad at himself. He NEVER wants to hurt anyone again or go back to the mean person he was so now he is changing himself all because he never wants to hurt anyone again. He’s sorry that he had to learn a hard lesson and hurt a beautiful person to him.”
“In this song Armstrong reveals his feelings about his father who died in September of 1982 when Armstrong was 10 years old. However this is not the only meaning that this song bears. For most Americans the month of September is associated with the 9/11 terrorist attacks of 2001.”
“Armstrong called Boulevard the ‘hangover’ song, and that’s pretty much what it is. Coming after Holiday this song describes the feeling of loneliness that Jesus of Suburbia has to face after the party is over. After finally breaking free and entering the City, Jesus was excited and filled with expectations. But now the holiday is over, the confetti landed on the floor and the intoxication is wearing off – he looks around and finds himself alone on the street of the heartless city, empty in the morning darkness. Everything around him seems lifeless and only his vital signs prove that he’s not dead as well. He’s all alone…The phrase “I’m walking down the line that divides me somewhere in my mind” could be considered the beginning of St. Jimmy’s appearance – Jesus doesn’t want to be weak and vulnerable anymore, he wants to change.”
“The song “Little Lion Man” has a lot of meaning to them. I think the song represents modern relationships and a man who hurts the people around him instead of leading them. “Weep for yourself, my man. You’ll never be what is in you’re heart.” Its means the man won’t be what he wants to be. He thinks himself to be a brave and a leader, but finds he is actually the one that is making the mistakes. “Learn from you’re mother or else spend the you’re days biting your own neck.” Its says that the man should take advice from others or it will come back and hurt you.
Its comes more clearer that the man sees the same pattern in other people. When things don’t go right it is easy to blame the negativity on others. The man slowly starts to realize the problem lies within. He realizes as he goes though many relationships, and he always blaming other people for the reason why the relationship failed. “You’re grace is wasted in you’re face. You’re boldness stands alone among the rest.” Means after the damage is done, the man tries to act like nothing happened and his not sad.
This song is about a man realizing that his relationships fail because he can be a good partner.”
“I think this song is about liking someone in his teens, or early twenties, he liked them so much, there eyes were embedded within him, but nothing ever happened. the ‘crush’ moved on, forgot about him, went with someone else he says he ‘walks slow’ this could signify that he waited for her, but she left, she didn’t come.As he has tried to forget her, he just can’t he will forever remember her and she haunts him, as he cannot move on, nothing will add up to her. it shows at the start of the song how bright eyed and bushy tailed he used to be about her, how he wanted her and liked her, they had a connection, but as he goes on he starts to mention ‘curse’ like she was his siren. His nymph.”
As always, I hope this helped you!
