All right all you closet Emos, what are some of your favorite sad songs?

When I found out that this song was about a dog that drowned, it really made me sad. :cry:

Another day is at end
Mama says she's tired again
No one can even begin to tell her
I hardly know what to say
But maybe it's better that way
If Papa were here I'm sure he'd tell her

Shannon is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard

Mama tries hard to pretend
That things will get better again
Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her
But finally the tears fill our eyes
And I know that somewhere tonight
She knows how much we really miss her

Shannon is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our back yard ...
Just like the one in our back yard .........

On Top of Spaghetti

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.

The first one you said something about dogs so does that mean it reminds you of one you had?

Molly Malone of course:

"In Dublin's fair city
Where girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
She wheeled a wheelbarrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive O!"

Alive, alive O...Alive, alive O
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O!

She was a fish-monger
And sure 'twas no wonder
For so was her father and mother before.
They wheeled their wheelbarrows
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive O!"

Alive, alive O...alive, alive O
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive O!

She died of a fever
And no one could save her
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels the barrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive O!"

Alive, alive O...alive, alive O
Crying, cockles and mussels, alive, alive O!"
