I have this odd music taste... SAD Music.
Sometimes they are not as much sad as very emotional.
They are usually Soundtracks

Examples may be:
Prince of Tides (Used by Copperfield for Snow)
Edward Scissorhands
East of Eden (Lee Holdridge) used by Copperfield to Fly

At one time I was going to start a webpage devoted to SAD music.

What music really moves you in an emotional way?
What do you think is the Saddest music you have ever heard? (sniff) Smile

"Satisfied Mind" and "Halleluja" by Jeff Buckley
"Into Dust" by Mazzy Star

A couple of real depressing tunes.

This way Mary from the film Mary Queen of Scots
Music by John Barry slow haunting melody . The best version is the one with the violin solo.

You're not on your own. I'm not into depressing, but I am into sad. Split somewhat between the emotional pulls of string music and the emotional pulls of emotional songs.

1. Adagio for Strings - Samual Barber (but it's been a tad over-used in films)
2. Cinema Paradiso (Se) - Ennio Morricone (helps a lot if you've got the film in your head when you listen)
3. Wild is the Wind - David Bowie
4. Cello Sonata No.3 - Bach (it's in the film Truly, Madly, Deeply)
5. Gethsemane - Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice (I hate to admit it!!!!! I saw Steve Balsamo sing this live on TV and it was phenomenal)
6. If I Were Your Woman - Gladys Knight and the Pips (the version I like is actually George Michael's If You Were My Woman which he sang live at the Mandela concert I think. The live version was better than that released on CD - slightly. It had a slightly more emotional edge).
7. Theme from Rocky ("Gonna Fly Now") - Bill Conti (good when it's going fast but better when Rocky's a bit down in the dumps and it's slow and quiet in the background.

I always liked the Copperfield flying music but didn't know what it was. Thanks for enlightening me.

I think the saddest is probably Adagio for Strings.

Saddest?....Taps - by a bugler at Arlington National Cemetery.

Most Emotional?....National Anthem.

First THANKS to everyone! I notice that each of you have a very different idea of SAD music:
Some said Rock and Blues wih sad lyrics
Some said Patriotic songs that definitely had a life connection
Some said New age
Some mentioned from nostalgic music

I started this "taste" while touring endless roads in my Motorbus. Soundtracks put me "in the movie" in a very hypnotic way and get me in a Dramatic mood when arriving to perform.
Here are some more favorites (short samples):

"Dragonheart" Soundtrack (silly movie but used in Copperfield Portal
http://www.moviemusic.com/audio/dragonheart2_19.mp3

"Last of the Mohicans" Soundtrack (awesome repeating melody in many emotions)
http://www.moviemusic.com/audio/lastofthemohicans_11.mp3

"Family Man" Soundtrack by Elfman(there is an uplifting and a very depressing song on the same soundtrack)
http://www.moviemusic.com/audio/familyman_14.mp3

"Pleasantville" soundtrack (an OK Movie with wonderful instumentals by Randy Newman)
http://www.moviemusic.com/audio/pleasantville-score_5.mp3

Anything by Philip Glass (very hypnotic choose any track It all sounds the same - used in "the Hours")

"Dances with Wolves" (very Grand sound to uplift)
http://www.moviemusic.com/audio/danceswithwolves_2.mp3

Keep 'em Coming !!

Smile

Claire de Lune by Claude Debussy has a rather haunting, emotional melody.

I love Deubssy.
Claire de Lune, Arabesque Nr.1 and La Mer are my favorites pieces. I love performing Claire & Arabesque. They have such an emotional quality when playing them.

The saddest out today would have to be "Mad World". Not the Tears for Fears version, but the Gary Jules Version that has hit #1 here in the UK.
Oh and by the way... one of our own magic Café members plays in the band with Gary Jules and plays on that song. Can you guess who?
