Music can be a roller-coaster ride of emotions. Talented artists are able to use the full spectrum of mood swings when crafting their songs. We can listen to a song to turn up to before going to the club, or turn down after a rough moment in life. For those darker times people love to listen to sad songs. For many it’s much easier to relate to a song about a bad breakup, than a song about millions in the ceiling.

From Blink 182 making us feel the pain of losing love on “I Miss You” to Eminem telling the story of an obsessed fan that feels ignored by his idol on “Stan,” these songs will all leave you feeling a little in the dumps. It doesn't matter the genre, all types of music are sure to bring a tear to your eye every so often. From songs that are sad because of the artists’ personal experiences or a story we feel all too familiar, these songs will do a 180 on your current mood. Make sure before you proceed to read this list you have a box of tissues nearby. Complex has put together a list of Songs To Play When You're Sad.
