Missing Someone

When missing someone, there is definitely no better friend than a sad song, with lines in which you can easily find yourself.

Next time you miss someone, make yourself a playlist with these sad songs and you’ll be back on your feet sooner than expected.

Bon Jovi – Always

The drums opening, the powerful electric guitar riff and solo, Jon Bon Jovi’s vocal and the perfection of his lyrics, this song has it all. “Always” has topped thousands and hundreds of power ballad lists ever since released in 1994. Originally, the singer wrote this song for the movie “Romeo is Bleeding”, but it didn’t make it. So, the band released it as a single and became their best-selling single of all time with over 3 millions copies sold over the world.

Jonny Lang – Missing your love

Jonny Lang’s smooth vocal and its great lyrics makes this song incredibly emotional. Although Jonny is still with her, he cannot hear his name when she calls him, but someone else’s. And so he is missing her love, every day. “Missing your love” is one of those songs that easily get stuck in your mind. All it takes is listening to it just once, but at the right moment.

I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing

The soundtrack of “Armageddon” is one of the saddest songs to listen when missing someone. This power ballad was an instant hit and describes how intense the love can be. Sometimes you miss your dear like she’s on another planet. When you’re deeply in love with someone, you cannot get enough of them. There’s a line that describes that perfectly: “I could stay awake just to hear your breathing.” As the songs goes on, the singer says that even “the sweetest dream” doesn’t compare to the feeling of being in love in real life.

3 Doors Down – Here Without You

3 Doors Down has become one of today’s best rock bands in the world, but they love to explore their sensitive side every now and then. “Here Without You” is their absolutely best rock ballad ever made and it is a truly sad song. The song is about someone who is missing their loved one, but she is always in his dreams and thoughts. This song has the potential to cause an emotional overwhelm.

Skid Row – I Remember You

Skid Row proved to us that heavy-metal bands can also melt our hearts. Their popular “I Remember You” is a metal ballad released in the late 80s and can evoke memories of you two being in love. With the powerful voice he has, Sebastian Bach sings about missing a girl and wishing for more of the days they walked down the beach, hand in hand.
