You can’t have a good Christmas without a good cry-y song, and some of the best songs for sad Christmas are sung by people who have experienced the same emotions as you. Nat King Cole, Coldplay, and Michael Buble are just a few of the artists that can help you get through a tough time. But there are so many more to choose from. Take a look below for some of our favorites.

Michael Buble

This year, if you’re a fan of Michael Buble, you know that he has his fair share of sad Christmas songs. The title of the song, “I Miss You,” speaks to this sentiment. Michael Buble sings about missing home and his girlfriend during the holiday season. The song’s happy ending is sweet – Joel becomes a diamond in his owner’s hand, and the separation is made a little bit better.

One of Buble’s best known songs is his cover of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.” In fact, it became a holiday classic, and Buble’s holiday album spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart. Buble and his band performed the song along with other favorites, including Kelly Clarkson’s “Merry Christmas Baby.”

There’s a catchy tune, too. “Merry Christmas,” by East 17, is not actually a Christmas song, but it is a surprisingly melancholic tune. Its lyrics, accompanied by sleigh bells, make it a brilliant exercise in festive melancholy. And there’s the infamous “Christmas Shoes” from last year. The lyrics are not that funny, but it makes you think about Christmas, especially when it’s the time of year for giving gifts.

If you’re feeling down around the holiday season, this is a good song to listen to. It’s about missing someone at Christmas. The instrumentals include Christmas melodies and jingling bells. Despite the sad subject matter, it’s a good choice for any heartbreak you might feel during the holiday season. If you’re a romantic at Christmas, this song will help you cope with your feelings.

Nat King Cole

“The Christmas Song” is one of the few “evergreen” holiday season hits. It was composed by Mel Torme and Bob Wells and arranged by Charlie Grean and Pete Rugolo, with minor additions by Paul Smith. It was recorded on August 24, 1953, at Capitol Records in Los Angeles, with Nat “King” Cole performing piano and guitar. The recording is considered to be one of the most popular Christmas songs of all time.

The song was written by Mel Torme and Bob Wells and arranged by the King Cole Trio in June, 1946. The King Cole Trio included Nat “King” Cole on piano, Oscar Moore on guitar, and Johnny Miller on bass. Strings were arranged by Charlie Grean. On August 19, 1946, the band recorded the song for Capitol Records. Today, the song remains a classic, popular with both audiences and critics alike.

If you’re feeling depressed this Christmas season, “The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot” by Vera Lynn is another sombre Christmas tune. This song tells the sad story of a boy who has no family and is ostracized by Santa Claus. The tune is a poignant reminder that not everyone has a Merry Christmas. In fact, the lyrics are so sad that it’s difficult to hear them without crying.


If you’re looking for a sad Christmas song, look no further than Coldplay’s ‘Christmas Lights’. This song, which is more of a holiday tune than a traditional Christmas one, reminds us that even the most sad moments can have some joy. Besides, the lyrics of ‘Christmas Lights’ are incredibly uplifting. Even the saddest of moments can be turned into something magical with the help of Coldplay.

This soaring Christmas song is the soundtrack to a lonely first Christmas away from a lover. It’s about longing for a lover you’re far away from, but the uplifting melody makes it more optimistic. The lyrics are a great way to cope with the loss of a relationship. You might not have the time to talk to your ex, but Coldplay’s Christmas songs are sure to be a welcome change from the usual blues.

Another song that will make you feel a little sad this holiday season is ‘Hard Candy Christmas’ by Coldplay. The lyrics explore the feelings of grief and loss that people experience at the holiday season. While this song doesn’t necessarily address death, it does address the pressure to be happy. It’s an appropriate choice for a Christmas song if you’re grieving the loss of a loved one. It can make you feel less alone and give you a good cry, and the lyrics are perfect for this time of year.

Coldplay’s Chris Martin

The iconic singer of Coldplay has performed some of the world’s saddest Christmas songs. This year, he paid tribute to George Michael, who died this past Sunday. Martin performed “Last Christmas,” a classic Christmas tune made famous by Wham!, at a private event for the film. The musician was joined on stage by film star Garrett Hedlund for the song. Watch Chris Martin perform this song in the video below.

Although Coldplay doesn’t normally write holiday songs, Chris Martin understands that the holidays can make us feel down, and the heightened expectations of wintry bliss can exacerbate our misery. Ultimately, the Christmas spirit can be found in the glimmer of hope. And this is exactly what Martin’s song does. Even though it sounds sad, Martin’s message of hope is more enduring than ever this year.

Martin has written several solo albums and has collaborated with other artists. The frontman of Coldplay once appeared on Greg James’ Breakfast Show. He asked listeners to share their sad Christmas stories. One story, a student named Beth, came in at 4 a.m. to work as a lifeguard. Despite being a week early, she staggered to work. She shared the story of her heartbreak with the host, who was moved by her story.

Emma Thompson

One of the most poignant holiday performances is Emma Thompson singing “White Christmas” in the movie Love Actually. In the movie, she sobbed in front of the Christmas tree as her children opened presents, and we can see exactly why. She’s heartbroken after learning her marriage is over on Christmas Eve, and the sad song became an all-time favorite. This song embodies the saddest Christmas song in human history.

The song is about a woman who once loved Christmas but now can’t find it. She’s grown up, so she can’t find it anymore. So she wanders through the woods, crying for Christmas. She creeps into the frozen windowpanes, crying out, and longing for Christmas. The lyrics make us think of Susan Pevensie, who was kicked out of Narnia.

Another sappy Christmas tune that is fitting to the season is “Last Christmas,” by Wham!. This movie also celebrates the holiday season with a touching premise and beautiful acting. In “Last Christmas,” Kate Clarke plays a failing adult who desperately wants a child-like Christmas experience, while Tom Golding plays a lovable over-good guy who finds her charming and adoring.

Karen Carpenter

The Carpenters are no strangers to singing sad Christmas songs. “Merry Christmas, Darling” is one of their best-known recordings and has become a classic for Christmas. Carpenter’s angelic voice and moving lyrics have inspired many artists to record this timeless holiday staple. Even today, this song can be heard on many compilation albums. It was also covered by Lea Michele, who performed it during “A Very Glee Christmas.”

Although the lyrics in Last Christmas are a bit happier than Karen’s usual fare, they’re still true to the holiday season. Karen Carpenter’s sweet voice is a welcome counterpoint to the darker holiday songs. The album ends with “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and “Silent Night,” which are both heart-rending songs about holiday breakups. Regardless of whether you’re looking for a happy ending or a sad ending, you’ll find a holiday track here to fit your mood.

Karen Carpenter’s Christmas album was the Carpenters’ first holiday recording, and while it’s unlikely to reach the heights of her previous recordings, the record will be remembered as a holiday staple. Carpenter’s warm vocals will be hard to replace, but the album is worth a listen. She has an unmatched gift for storytelling, and her Christmas album will live on forever. Even if you don’t care for her sad Christmas songs, you can still appreciate them.
