Billie Holiday - "I'm a Fool to Want You"

I haven't really thought of "the most sad i've ever heard", but these are a small selection of those that I feel are way up there.

If I can decide on just one i'll come back and edit or post again (usually I don't have a hard time picking just one of things like this).

songs for drella (the dream? or whatever that's called, is great. also goodbye andy (?). lou, you sweetheart, even though you're still an asshole. but you have to listen to the whole thing. one of the maybe 3-4 hour-long albums i like)
YouTube - ‪Lou Reed - What's Good (Video)‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xd5SjVK2Dz0) - off magic and loss
berlin (oh god, when she gets her kids taken away...) i mean, shit, this is on it:
YouTube - ‪11 Lou Reed - berlin live Sad Song‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfm499smiwo)

aaaaanyway: not a single person posted any blues? or jazz? (except that one billie holiday)
classic:

YouTube - ‪Skip James - Devil Got My Woman‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BtZ6DoeimP4) (steve buscemi. those that know know)
there was also mississippi john hurt's "last recordings" (or whatever it was called) album that was brutal/great listening. he's like 70 or something, it's incredible.
then a whole bunch of blues guys whose names you all prolly heard over and over and over and never listened to cause were too white/guilty or black/sick of it.
anyway: shit, most (pretty much all, i guess) early jazz (and then most jazz after that too) was soaked in blues anyway.
always liked this one. used to lay on the floor and stare the cieling listening to this (really!):
YouTube - ‪Sidney Bechet - Blue Horizon‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBoO0GMadAg)
duke too. ellington, not nukem. tee hee. but god yes, duke knew how to be sad too.
and yeah, high five to the guy that mentioned billie holiday. love this video (love lester young/pres too, he knew how to be sad like hell too)
YouTube - ‪Billie Holiday and Lester Young: Fine and Mellow‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtgUbJN8oPE)

last one:
YouTube - ‪Peter Laughner - Amphetamine‬‏ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWP8tkZ4ldE)
whole album is like this. most everything is worse than this one though. (though "no one did anything as senselessly cruel as sylvia plath" is a great line, in context anyway.) (and he does a fantastic "life stinks" - if you've already heard the pere ubu and the rocket from the tombs versions. pretty sure he was the one that wrote it in the first place) (i might just be thinking of that lester bangs piece whenever i think of laughner though. that's where i heard of the guy in the first place anyway - and where most people prolly did) (there's also a rocket from the tombs version of this, which is pretty good - shit, it's rocket from the tombs, can't be bad - but i like this one better)
