3. Faded Love -- the song that brought Patsy Cline to tears.

Right at the end, she can no longer hold it together. The recording engineers made it a take.

It's an awesome, iconic country song, all the more so because of Patsy's inability to not break down and cry at the crucial moment.


Hell, it brings tears to my eyes even now. A powerful recording.

Geeze! I listen to opera and classical music. I don't even like country music that much. But Patsy Cline is one of those people who make their own way and define an art.

29. That was her life...

She was singing from experience and it was/is heartbreaking.... sadly, her husband, who tormented her in life, collected royalties and benefited from her fame until his death just a few years ago!

31. Knowing its history; it's an extraordinary recording.

It was one of her last. That the recording engineers knew that her breakdown during the final bars was something to keep speaks volumes.

It never fails to move me. And Patsy Cline was very, very special.

41. Do yourself a favor....

Go listen to "Crazy". Most people don't know and don't appreciate the fact that that song was sung from Cline's hospital bed. She had a devastating car wreck and she was in the hospital when the demo, from a young singer/ songwriter named Willie Nelson, was played for her. She was so scared that "Crazy" would be recorded by someone else that she insisted that it be cut from her hospital room. Her hospital room!! History was made and her legacy was cemented....:

this is the saddest song I know............and most beautiful. For the Irish among us (and the Irish at heart) - it's a 'must listen to'. It's based on letters that were found in an attic.

He was hanging around my college in Philadelphia when I went there. He was older than I was, doing some kind of graduate level program. I haven't seen him since. I knew he was a musician, but never heard him perform.

Reminds me of a time I drove all night to NYC from Toronto, hoping the guy I'd dumped for my then-husband would "still be there".

He wasn't.

My niece (a middle school teacher) wrote on FB this week that she was listening to the Platters 'I only have eyes for you' in class & I told her my favorite version was by Art Garfunkel. When she said she hadn't heard it I dug out my cd I ripped this album onto a flash drive & sent it to her.

23. Mattis' version is also heartbreaking.

He captures the wistfulness of the song, along with the sense of desperation for a certain someone to "still be there".

(BIG Mathis fan here!) The first song I remember on the radio is "Chances Are". I remember that every time I was in the car with one of my parents, I would wait for that song to come up on the car radio.

18. Honey - Bobby Goldsboro

I was only 7 when my mom died and I still believed we were on vacation while my dad stayed at home to work.

I always imagined that my father felt intense sadness when he heard the song play on the mornings that he had set his alarm to play music instead of news. And I would cry quietly in my bed for him, but honestly, mostly for me.

My mom had that kind of innocence - like in the song. She celebrated the joy of life and her love of nature in a way that was sung about "Honey".




Damn. I just found out that the song still makes me cry.

That's my mom in my sigline. I miss her every day. Still.

And another from Willie, although Elvis sang it just as heartbreaking!




Here's one of the saddest songs I've ever heard from Towes Van Zandt...



And, arguably, the saddest country song ever:



And, one more, what I consider to be the saddest county song ever....shit I used to listen to this on LP again and again, with a healthy dose of Jack Daniels when I went through a divorce many years ago....thanks to the ultimate power in this universe that I found my wife and we made a beautiful family. But here's my vote for THE saddest country song:

64. Nothing compares to "Lost In The Moment" by...

...Edie Brickell. It's a beautiful melody, some of Brickell's best vocals ever, and brings me to tears every time.

67. Million Years Ago



I know I'm not the only one
Who regrets the things they've done
Sometimes I just feel it's only me
Who never became who they thought they'd be
I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry
I miss the air I miss my friends
I miss my mother I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago
A million years ago

69. What'll I Do

All the more heart-breaking because we'll never hear her sing live again.



Judy Holliday, the comic actress, recorded this song on an album we had when I was a kid, and I think her version was even better.

To me, no other song gets to the roots of what the blues are all about.

Blind Willie Johnson - Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground


So sad they shot it into space

81. As a young gay man when the album came out, that song was like an icicle to the heart

"Will there never be a prince who rides along the sea and the mountains
Scattering the sand and foam into amethyst fountains
Riding up the hills from the beach in the long summer grass
Holding the sun in his hands and shattering the isinglass?"

Alas, there never was, but it wasn't Judy's fault.

88. Teddy Bear by Red Sovine.

And Can You Feel The Love Tonight by Elton John. I spent the summer with my dad when I was 10 and when he dropped me off back at my mom's, after the lengthy road trip, I was so down watching him pull out of the driveway. I watched him driving away and when he was out of sight, I went into my room and sobbed. I turned the radio on and that song came on. It has always been my song for my dad. Moves me to tears all the time.

91. A little Puccini:



Senza Mamma from the opera Suor Angelica - A woman is sent to a convent for disgracing her aristocratic family; after years of waiting to see him she learns that her out-of-wedlock baby died. It always makes me cry because it's so sad and so beautiful. And godawful hard to sing well.

I was on the way home from orchestra rehearsal when I heard this the first time. I burst into tears and had to pull over.

My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I'm just a living legacy to the leader of the band.

RIP Ebby, of the Swampland Swing Band
