Thread Name: What murder ballad is the saddest? [songs]
Subject: RE: What murder ballad is the saddest?
I suppose the ones I'm thinking about also might be classed as 'gruesome' rather than 'sad': The Cruel Ship's Captain and a German song about three robbers abducting a young girl, and because they can't agree about who is going to get her they 'cut her up like a fish'. Always gives me the shivers.
