My entry for the contest. It helped that I already had a personal list of all time saddest songs, but most of them don't show up, because most of them are only sad in a context.

I didn't want to rattle off a list of 20 "I-hate-myself-and-want-to-die" songs or 20 eulogies. I tried to play off a few different angles of sadness. What resulted was a broad picture of quite a few facets of that intruguing-but-unpleasant emotion that is sadness.

I hope you'll enjoy this one.

PS: I had to re-pick my tracks twice, explaining the lack of definitions. I'll get around to them eventually, but they were all kind of spur-of-the-moment and dull, anyways.
