Angels on the Moon - that's a very heart wrenching song Denny - and such a sad scenario.

Fade Out (Street Spirit) by Radiohead is stunningly beautiful sad song.

I 'll get along without you very well .
Jazz trumpeter Chet Baker c.1957

Just heard it on "Jazz Record Requests", worth a listen on iplayer.

Since you say 'any genre' and since it annoys me intensely that the word 'music' seems to have been co-opted by the dominant type of music (i.e. Rock/Pop), I'm going to say the Requiem Aeternam movment from Benjamin Britten's War Requiem. It's a setting of a Wilfred Owen poem.

Tell me there's a heaven......Chris Rea

If this doesn't pull at your heartstrings, you don't deserve to be human, whether your religious or not!

I know Jools, so just to please you, The Adagietto from Mahler's 5th Symphony, (The music used in the film "Death In Venice"), so sad, It always brings me to tears !!

( see, not a pleb after all !!!!!! ) Smile

True, Geoff, very true. But the Adagio of the 9th trumps it - esp. the last few bars.

"Tell Laura I Love Her" by (I think) Ricky Vallance was so sad that it was banned by the BBC.




(but, then, the BBC also banned Eddie Cochran's "Three Steps to Heaven" that was released almost immediately after the singer's death.)

Born Under A Bad sign, written by Booker T and on an old Albert King album.

It starts with the immortal lines

Born under a bad sign.
I've been down since I began to crawl.
If it wasn't for bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck at all.

Reminds me of the first time I saw Neil Young live and he introduced 'Needle and The Damage Done'. "This song starts out slow, low and depressing and kinda goes down from there".

Tom Waits - On the Nickel

and

Sam Cooke - A Change is Gonna Come

Both songs that have meaning and resonance.
