Sad instrumental songs?

I'm looking for songs that are dramatic and and put you in a sad mood/make you cry.

Something like this:

Listen to #2: Waiting For Something Awakens and #12: Memories of Aya and Eve. (Move you mouse over the [ ] and click stream)

I'm looking for songs that are purely instrumental, no singing or vocals. Oh, and preferably violins and/or pianos. Please help?

    Well the scene from castaway where he loses wilson makes me cry everytime. And I'm a guy. So It should work for ya. It's beautiful music though, and Wilson was his only friend for all those years.

    Song Cry Instrumental

    OH MY LORDY!!! I HAVE THE PERFECT SONG!!

    sorry, all caps are officially off, teehee.

    anyway I was on limewire the other day and I stumbled across a song titled, "Bella's Lullaby" and the artist name was Edward Cullen. That's all I know about it. Anyway I was curious and I downloaded it and listened to it. I cried the whole way through and have every time I hear it. Just search Bella's Lullaby on Limewire and it should come up.

    Listen, you may not like the Twilight book series, but I promise you, once you hear this song you will not be dissappointed. It's completely pure and unique. It'll make you feel something, for sure.

    Happy Listening,

    Isabel

    The saddest classical song is Adagio For Strings by Samuel Barber; the saddest contemporary instrumental song is Song For Sienna by Brian Crain...give them both a listen if you have not heard them.

    Check out Vitamin String Quartet. They're on iTunes and Amazon.com. They take popular songs and turn them into instrumental songs with violins and such.

  • Try songs from the Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II soundtracks. If you google for these soundtracks, you should find them. My sad personal favorites are Dearly Beloved, Kairi, and Roxas.

    I bet you'd love Secret Garden - they use mostly the piano and violin. Try "Nocturne", "Lotus", and "Adagio" to start with.

    You might also like "Les Memoires Blesses" by Dark Sanctuary.

    Muse has a song called "Blackout". The album version is not instrumental but I know there is an instrumental out there somewhere.
