I was reading this thing about Aimee Mann’s new album, Mental Illness, and she talks about how she said the hell with being careful and balanced and went ahead and made “the saddest, slowest, most acoustic, if-they’re-all-waltzes-so-be-it record.” Then she listed her favorite top 10 sad songs.

Speaking of Aimee Mann, “Wise Up” is one of my favorite sad songs; you might remember it from the movie Magnolia. (Version with lyrics here.)

Post your favorite sad song below.
