Here’s a short and sweet post…

What is the saddest song you’ve ever heard?

My submission: “Dante’s Prayer” by Loreena McKennitt. Download it and give it a listen. Haunting, beautiful, and heartwrenching.


  1. I think that is indeed one for the ages.

    Listen to Rosie Thomas’s “Farewell.”

  2. Hmmm. “Farewell” was sad, but it just didn’t hit me the same way “Dante’s Prayer” did.

    I’ve found Elton John’s tributes to dead celebrities to be pretty moving, too. Try “Empty Garden” and “Candle In the Wind.”

  3. Unfortunately, Elton John’s music sort of leaves me cold.
