Let's see... going off the top of my head...

Aozora from Air
Snowfield from Clannad/Clannad ~After Story~
The ending credits song from 5 Centimeters per Second
Lost My Pieces from Toradora!
Song For Friends from Little Busters! ~Refrain~
The song that plays during a certain scene (those who've seen it probably know what I'm referring to.) in the final episode of Chrono Crusade

If I had to just pick one, I would probably go with Aozora.

I may or may not have burst into tears about a week after watching Clannad when I heard Clannad's "The Palm of a Tiny Hand" It was a weird time for me.

AnoHana Spoilers
I've always wondered if the person who came up with the idea for AnoHana was actually inspired to write the story by listening to Secret Base, or whether it was just a happy coincidence. The song is far older than the anime. Ten years older in fact, which is why they call it the 10 years after version in this cover they did for the anime.

As far as my personal saddest songs in anime I'd have to say probably Ichiban no Takaramono, at least as far as ones I know were in an anime.

Between VN soundtracks and anime soundtracks sometimes I forget what is used where. Higurashi and Umineko have some incredibly sad songs as well but I can't remember if they were in the anime anywhere or just in the game soundtracks. Songs like "You" and its variations. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdU52Wx_HKA
People tend to forget that there's actually a lot of humanity and feels to be had in both those series for not being able to see past the bloodshed and creepiness. I may be the only one who thinks this way but I've always seen Key's works and 07th expansions works, to be very similar in themes, just with Key's works a little more hopeful and 07th expansion's works a little more tragic. The point is if you dig into the When they Cry soundtracks, you can find some really sad stuff especially if you understand the songs context.

For some reason .. The ending song to Nagi no Asukara and the musics that plays during the anime.

The feels ~

Just finished watching Guilty Crown, so here's a few more songs from that which leave me feeling empty:

Euterpe+Departures from Guilty Crown - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNOuK8YcABo
Release my Soul from Guilty Crown - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eK8SXYZ2zw

I seriously can't last a minute without a huge heartache.

Another for the list, Promise from Idolmaster. It's more bittersweet than sad, but I tear up every time when Chihaya comes in.

http://youtu.be/FUJGqbS3WsU?t=30s this one has the footage from the show and would spoil the episode a bit if you haven't seen it. Even more tearjerking with the video though.
