    What are some good sad songs? Musically and lyrically? Songs that will make me think etc. but have an underlying sadness.

    Terrapin2190 I am nature.

    I enjoy these and find them both extremely powerful in the right (or wrong) mindset.

    This first one I actually found here on HipForums. Recorded (masterfully) in 4k resolution.

    I will warn you, The 'Portugal The Man' track does have a music video, but I mentioned a warning because their music videos are all rather very strange and a bit gorey. I like a lot of their studio recordings though.

    I don't know if I could sing that song without struggling.

    The last two were more my style.

    The Loudness really reminded me of Hammerfall. 0.0

    "Poignant" is perhaps more accurate than "sad" for this first song.

    My second offering is a sad/poignant performance of Goodnight Irene by the Weavers. It was a big hit for the Weavers in 1950.
    This performance was in 1980, only a few months before Lee Hayes died of diabetes.

    As one gets older - Be it the young fresh Hippie, the Rebellious Punk , the Bohemian New Romantic ,,, etc produce a Melancholy muse that one only perhaps appreciates with the passing of time and "In the glass, I saw a strange reflection ..." rings true
