Hello.

I love real sad, lonely, dark, piano songs. I would love to compile a list of songs as such.

Help me create a list...

So many...

Right now I am working on Chopin 27 2

This thread might be better over on the Pianist Corner where so many pieces are discussed. (maybe this might be a good time to try the new search feature for threads that might be similar, as well)

Same idea here: this would fit better in the Pianist Corner.

Beethoven: Sonata 14, Opus 27, 1st movement
Chopin: Opus 28, Prelude 4 (Prelude 15 is also beautiful); Sonata 2, Opus 35, 3d movement
Debussy: Clair de Lune
Mussorgsky: Une Larme
Rachmaninoff: Elegie; Prelude in C Sharp Minor

I'm also a huge fan of Satie, who has written some beautiful and easy works (I especially love the Gymnopedies, Gnossiennes and Danses de Travers). You could look into those as well.

These are not necessarily "piano" songs, but I play them solo on the piano, so they can be piano songs.

Different genre, but oh so sad:

"Drown In My Own Tears" -Ray Charles

"Please Send Someone To Love" -Percy Mayfield

"3 O'Clock In The Morning" -BB King

"The Sky Is Crying" -Elmore James

"How Blue Can You Get?" -BB King

The Moonlight sonata, definitely.
Also, some pieces by Yann Tiersen...

I love playing his work at night while everything's quiet and the only light comes from my piano lamp...

Also, Clair de Lune is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard!

Wish I could play it, but it's still beyond my level for now. smile
Still, I can't get enough of listening to it, it's so moving!

Supersport mentions Jay Ungar, his "Blue River Walz" is my personal favorite from him and his talented wife Molly, unfortunately it's not on any online freebies. Check it out if you get the chance.

It's hard to beat Lucinda Williams for great melancholy tunes if you are into Americana/Alt Country. If you can play by ear her songs are pretty easy and really do nicely on the piano.
