When it comes to sad music country music has the most sad songs. Hard to
pick just one but I would go with:

"I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" By Hank Williams covered my others I like Johnny Cash version best.

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill

He sounds too blue to fly

The midnight train is whining low

I'm so lonesome I could cry


I've never seen a night so long

When time goes crawling by

The moon just went behind a cloud

To hide its face and cry


Did you ever see a robin weep

When leaves begin to die?

Like me he's lost the will to live

I'm so lonesome I could cry


The silence of a falling star

Lights up a purple sky

And as I wonder where you are

I'm so lonesome I could cry

#2 sad song pick An American Trilogy lyrics by Elvis Presley

Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old things they are not forgotten
Look away, look away, look away dixieland
Oh I wish I was in dixie, away, away
In dixieland I take my stand to live and die in dixie
Cause dixieland, thats where I was born
Early lord one frosty morning
Look away, look away, look away dixieland

Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah
His truth is marching on

So hush little baby
Dont you cry
You know your daddys bound to die
But all my trials, lord will soon be over

---------------------------------------------------------
When it comes to happy music forget country and it would be very hard to pick one
that is that happy. At a time in my life I was on anti-depressant and happy I
liked Wagner's Tannhauser. Then years later depressed off medicine I started
taking anti-depressant again and the music began playing in my mind!! !!

A sad song is 'Concrete angel', by Martina McBride, and also 'Two Beds and a Coffee Machine' by Savage Garden. And maybe 'Grown-up Christmas list' by Kelly Clarkson...

And a happy song would definitely be Affirmation, by Savage Garden. And also 'Wonderful' by Everclear is very nice.

They are some of my favourites. :D I have no definite preference of music :P

That is a shame. I think it is a really happy song. I'll have to be careful not to hear it too much.

How come you have heard it soo much?
