Scientists Discover the Saddest Song Ever

Following the recent death of his wife,  the illustrator and musician Geneviève Castrée, Phil Elverum, who records as Mount Eerie, wrote a whole album of songs expressing his grief and his processing of the loss.  This song opens the LP and it's hard to listen to without choking up at least a little, if not downright bawling.   It's actually not a song so much as a direct and honest expression of the rawest of emotions.

I honestly can't think of a song sadder than this.
