I’ve watched a few music videos that I thought were sad. Here they are:

Enrique Iglesias - Hero Britney Spears - Everytime Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends Phil Collins - You’ll Be In My Heart (from Disney’s Tarzan) Snow Patrol - Run (the music is more sad than the music video) Usher - Burn

Also, the music from Braveheart was a bit sad (unless it’s the dance version) and the song Everything I Do (I Do It For You) from a Robin Hood film is a bit sad too (but not the dance version).

Answer #107

This song makes me bawl my eyes out… it is country, so if that’s not your thing then you should still just listen to the words…it is a true tear jerker

This song by Jason Michael Carrol

Alyssa Lies

My little girl met a new friend, just the other day, on the playground at school between the tires and the swings

But she came home with tear-filled eyes, and she said to me “Daddy, Alyssa lies”

Well I just brushed it off at first, ‘cause I didn’t know how much my little girl had been hurt or the things she had seen. I wasn’t ready when I said “You can tell me”

and she said…

“Alyssa lies to the classroom, Alyssa lies everyday at school, Alyssa lies to the teachers as she tries to cover every bruise”

My little girl laid her head down that night to go to sleep. As I stepped out the room, I heard her say a prayer so soft and sweet “God bless my mom and my Dad and my new friend, Alyssa ohI know she needs you bad

Because Alyssa lies to the classroom, Alyssa lies everyday at school, Alyssa lies to the teachers as she tries to cover every bruise”


I had the worst night of sleep in years as I tried to think of a way to calm her fears I knew just what it was I had to do I knew exactly what I had to do but when we got to school on Monday I heard the news

My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad the lump in my throat grew bigger with every question that she asked. Until I felt the tears run down my face and I told her that Alyssa wouldn’t be at school today

‘Cause she doesn’t lie in the classroom she doesn’t lie anymore at school Alyssa lies with Jesus because there’s nothin’ anyone would do

Tears filled my eyes when my little girl asked me why Alyssa lies Oh Daddy, oh Daddy tell me why Alyssa lies
