The Saddest Song In The World:
The Lonely Man Theme


According to British research most people list The Verve's hit "The Drugs Don't Work" as the saddest song to listen to. Dr. Harry Witchel from the University of Bristol Medical School monitored volunteers' heart rates to see which tracks made people feel happy, sad or exhilarated. The Verve's track topped a list of 10 sad songs, including Robbie Williams' "Angels", Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" and Sinbad O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U."

Not me, none of those songs even come close to how I feel when I hear Joe Harnell's haunting opening notes echo from the piano. I had this song ringing in my head today... all day. It's "The Lonely Man Theme (From 'The Incredible Hulk')" That, my friends, is the saddest song in the world. Don't disagree with me, it will make me angry. And you wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

So what is your take on the saddest song in the world? Leave me some claims will ya?

Or just take the damn mp3, and be on your way.

Your words are full of truth. I used to watch "Hulk" every Saturday and bawl my eyes out in my mother's arms as the credits rolled ... well, I *was* only six.

Thanks for the MP3. *bawls*

I completely agree, one sad song indeed.
While not a contest for Lonely Man, I would like to submit Metallica's 'Fade to Black' as another sad song favourite of mine.
