"Like a Sad Song" is the title of a song written and performed by the noted American singer-songwriter John Denver, released as a single from his 1976 album, "Spirit". Although it only reached #36 on the "Billboard" Hot 100 chart, "Like a Sad Song" became Denver's eighth single to reach #1 on the adult contemporary chart within the span of three years, from 1974 to 1976. In 1982, the singer's song "Shanghai Breezes" would become his ninth, and final, #1 on the adult contemporary chart.
