Man, so many good songs in this thread!


"The Letter" by The Boxtops - It was the first music video I ever watched back when I was... 6? 7? I remember it being really powerful. Both the song and the video was about a guy breaking out of prison to be with the love of his life, to tragic results. I've looked for the video on Youtube, but have never been able to find it. Might be a good thing, as I'm sure that it wouldn't hold up to my memories of it.

The Letter


"An Cat Dubh" by U2 - Kind of a moody song that, for some reason, had me looking up "Cat sėth" and learning a crap tonne about Celtic/Gaelic mythology. Always found it really sad, for some reason.

 An Cat Dub


"End of All Heartache" by Killswitch Engage is, in itself, not exactly a sad song, but it was a favourite of a friend of mine who drowned in a house-boating accident not too long after she shared it with me.  :sad:

End of All Heartache


Hmm. I'm gonna post 4, because nobody can stop me:

"Auron's Theme" from FFX. Not everybody liked that plot of that particular game, but I thoroughly did. Auron was cool, in a tragic kind of way.

Like You'll Never See Me Again - Alicia Keys

I started listening to this one near the end of my days in middle school. Kinda wrecked me after I finished 8th Grade Prom lol

I Love U Oh Thank U - MC 몽
http://youtu.be/ix-q5A778A0

I made several foreign exchange friends from Korea in college, and one of them who could barely speak English shared this song with me before she departed back to Korea. I got wrecked when I listened to it that night.

Aerith's Theme - Final Fantasy VII
http://youtu.be/fIqKWLkm2-g

It doesn't matter how many times I replay this game, I'll still get hit hard with the feels when I witness THAT scene and hear this song. There was so much raw emotion in a game that barely shows any character facial expressions.

Gimme any FF soundtrack over other games any day. FFIV, VI, VII, VIII, X, XIII (and XIII-2), XV are all golden

Even worse!

Those are two of the worst songs I have heard in years! Seriously. I guess we should be living on different planets.

Not sure I could ever take a singer who calls himself MC 'Mong' seriously.  Also wasn't he the one who tried to avoid military service by removing his teeth? Or is that another one?

Different experiences, different opinions.

I don't know if he removed his teeth, but he WAS in trouble for avoiding service.

sorry to add another falsetto male voice...but James Blake- A Case of You is such a great cover of Joni Mitchell. And is so lovely.
