Top 50 Best Sad Songs of the 90s

1990's Lists

*User Recommended List*

This list is based primarily on two criteria. The depth and strength of the despair and of course the quality of the music. It's no secret that sad music happens to be my favorite, so there were a ton of deserving songs to choose from. I wanted to personally thank Russell for his suggestion! As always, let's see if you guys can best the Rock Czar with your own list of sad songs.
