    That's what I meant, which is why I precised:

    Most heart-trenching, tragic, dramatic, emotional song/music
    Tedious downers with mushy unoriginal lyrics are not what I meant by 'saddest'.

    I know. Hence why I wasn't talking about songs.


    Nevertheless, it's important not to disregard songs that are steeped in context. If only for the potential learning that can be acquired. To connect to certain phrasing, unique tone or voice can be the catalyst to understanding and the enemy of cultural ignorance.

    (not that you're overtly affirming the contrary)

    Perhaps you could provide us with something from Spain? I don't think I have any Spanish music.

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    "kate rusby my young man"

    hauntingly beautiful voice about on old miner from his wife

    the video is stunning - especially whn the lone tear rolls down her face.

    I don't know that I can beat Barber's Adagio, but if you're not already familiar with it, I'd recommend:

    Henryk Gorecki's Symphony no. 3 "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs"

    It has three movements, and at least some of them are too long for youtube, sadly. You can get a good taste of it from youtube at least though.

    Part of the first movement (but not starting at the beginning and cutting off the very end, sadly):

    YouTube - Symphony of Sorrowful Songs - Henryk Grecki - 1st movement

    The beginning is a very gradual but very beautiful build up to a wonderful climax, that then is brought down leading into the singer at the beginning of that link.

    Second movement:
    YouTube - Gorecki Symphony No. 3 "Sorrowful Songs" - Lento e Largo

    I'm sure you can find at least parts of the 3rd too if you want. I'd also encourage you to look up the context it was written in and a translation of the lyrics, at least if you like it. And of course, as with any song like this, only listen when you can give it the attention it deserves. Hope you enjoy!

    Why Spain specifically ? There are none I recall from Spain, but here's one in Spanish I particularly enjoy:

    From 30 seconds in, the King's College Choir:

    [YOUTUBE="jZL3POaATn8"]Miserere Mei Deus[/YOUTUBE]

    and

    [YOUTUBE="qkGqJKR-32s"]Everyperson by John Frusciante[/YOUTUBE]

    Both these feel similar to me, despite the disparity in styles.
    ...so much smoke pouring out of each chromosome.
