    In addition to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow
    you must get:
    Tom Waits - Waltzing Matilda
    Rufus Wainwright - Natasha
    Tori Amos - Northern Lad (these songs are typically used in US series for the sad scenes :rolleyes: )

    and for some Britishness:
    Tom McRae - Draw Down The Stars or How The West Was Won
    Ed Harcourt - This One's for you

    and pretty much any Counting Crows song ever, especially the August And Everything After and This Desert Life albums. They're one of the best bands ever.

    The Killers - 'Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine,' 'Mr Brightside'

    Listen to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow... (from the Lynx advert and Meet Joe Black soundtrack).
    oh i think that was the one on ER when Dr greene died, and for this reason is very emotional for me. i bawled my eyes out in that episode and every time the lynx ad came on i welled up.

    Oasis - Sad Song
    YES, great song. Wish it wasn't only available on the DVD though...

    And Steve, is the quote in your sig a Dave quote? Kinda sounds like one...

    Listening to The Man Who Sold The World now 'coz I just read your post on the lyrics thread...such a class song.

    I can never think of anything of the top of my head but Azure Ray's "Displaced," and Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" are very sad.

    Edit: Rilo Kiley - "Does He Love You" and "A Man/Me/Then Jim;" they have a lot of sad songs.

    Something Corporate - Konstantine
    Nine minutes of pure misery gets me every time.

    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow (it was when it was played in 50 first dates that it got me)
    Elliot Smith - Needle In The Hay (When Luke Wilson tries to kill himself in The Royal Tenenbaums)
    Keane - Bedshaped
    Lacuna Coil - Falling Again

    The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?
    I am the son
    And the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
    I am the son and heir
    Of nothing in particular

    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way ?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does

    There’s a club, if you’d like to go
    You could meet somebody who really loves you
    So you go, and you stand on your own
    And you leave on your own
    And you go home, and you cry
    And you want to die

    When you say it’s gonna happen now
    Well, when exactly do you mean ?
    See, I’ve already waited too long
    And all my hope is gone

    You shut your mouth
    How can you say
    I go about things the wrong way ?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like everybody else does

    Sing a sad song
    In a lonely place
    Try to put a word in for me
    It’s been so long
    Since I found this place
    You better put in two or three
    We as people, are just walking ’round
    Our heads are firmly fixed in the ground
    What we don’t see
    Well it can’t be real
    What we don’t touch we cannot feel

    Where we’re living in this town
    The sun is coming up and it’s going down
    But it’s all just the same at the end of the day
    And we cheat and we lie
    Nobody says it’s wrong
    So we don’t ask why
    Cause it’s all just the same at the end of the day
    We’re throwing it all away
    We’re throwing it all away
    We’re throwing it all away at the end of the day

    If you need it
    Something I can give
    I know I’d help you if I can
    If your honest and you say that you did
    You know that I would give you my hand
    Or a sad song
    In a lonely place
    I’ll try to put a word in for you
    Need a shoulder? well if that’s the case
    You know there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

    Where we’re living in this town
    The sun is coming up and it’s going down
    But it’s all just the same at the end of the day
    When we cheat and we lie
    Nobody says it’s wrong
    So we don’t ask why
    Cause it’s all just the same at the end of the day

    Don’t throw it all away
    Don’t throw it all away
    Don’t throw it all away
    Don’t throw it all away
    Throwing it all away
    Throwing it all away
    Throwing it all away

    Throwing it all away
    Throwing it all away
    You’re throwing it all away at the end of the day
