'Everybody Hurts' named most depressing song of all timeFeb 1, 3:50 pm
London, Feb 1 (ANI): 'Everybody Hurts' by American band REM was voted as the saddest song ever, beating Elton John's 'Candle in the Wind', in a poll.Mike and the Mechanics' 'The Living Years' came third in the poll.The survey was commissioned by theatrical producer David King, 55, to discover more about what he described as "the power of music".It revealed 84 per cent of men aged between 18 and 24 have become tearful to music but in the 55 plus age group the figure dropped to 74 per cent, the Telegraph reported.The study also asked people where they were most likely to cry to a sad song.Most broke down at home, but another emotional trigger was songs or music played at weddings with four in ten women admitting they had cried.For men, music at nuptials proved less emotional - only 20 per cent said they had shed a tear when a song was played while friends or family tied the knot.It seems a sad song on the car radio can also reduce many of us to tears, with 23 per cent of men and 33 per cent of women admitting to crying behind the wheel."I was really interested in finding out a bit more about the power of music and how it affects us all," said King."To be honest I wasn't one bit surprised that men have such a strong reaction to music."I have been in and around music all my life and I know just what a powerful effect it can have on people," he said.TOP 20 SAD SONGS (as voted in survey)1.
