ooh. the other night i got in such a fight with the boy, and then there was some special on VH1 called "tearjerkers" or something. i was crying so hard.
no doubt "don't speak." i know it's cliche, but damnit it makes me cry. i think it's about gwen and the bassist breaking up, and they wrote it together or something? it's a sweet song.
guns and roses "november rain." i find this song very impressive. he just has so much to say. it goes on for like 8 minutes without even really having a chorus. and it makes me cry.-( "and it's hard to hold a candle in the cold november rain."
guster "demon." for some reason i find this song very sexy, but at the same time very sad. "honest is easy, fiction is where genius lies."
i like this thread mucho,
------------------ Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk - real straight talk about souls - for life is holy and every moment is precious. I heard the Denver and Rio Grande locamotive howling off in the mountains. I wanted to pursue my star further. -Kerouac
NSync- "This I Promise You" NSync- "God Must Have Spent.." Vince Gill- "Go Rest High on That Mountain" Mandy Moore- "When I Talk to You" Mandy Moore- "Your Face" Creed- "What's This Life For" Creed- "Torn" Creed- "Inside Us All" Creed- "Wash Away Those Years" Creed- "Faceless Man" Lifehouse- "Everything" Stevie Ray Vaughan- "Life By the Drop" Lynrd Skynrd- "Freebird" A Perfect Circle- "3 Libras" R Kelly- "If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time" Vast- "I Don't Have Anything"
Now I'm sure I've forgotten some, but here's some songs that make me cry! I'm a very emotional person...
------------------ So let's go there Let's make our escape Come on, let's go there Let's ask can we stay?
Can you take me higher? To the place where blind men see Can you take me higher? To the place with golden streets
Paul McCartney's Calico Skies and Little Willow, but especially the first one. I usually can't stand his post-Beatle music, and music doesn't usually make me cry, but these ones really get to me. He did write them around the time his wife was dying, though . . . *snuff*

98 Degrees - "Yesterday's Letter" Selena - "Dreaming of You" Savage Garden - "Two Beds and a Coffee Machine" Phil Collins - "Against All Odds" Jennifer Paige - "Beautiful" Goo Goo Dolls - "Iris"
I don't really cry at these songs, they just sound sad.
Hold On: Sarah Maclachlan She Said: Ani DiFranco Sally's Pigeons: Cyndi Lauper Behind The Wall: Tracy Chapman Streets of Philadelphia: Bruce Springsteen (from the movie...Philadelphia is also one of the ones I posted in the movie thread...damn, that movie and that song haunt me... Long story.) Family: Dar Williams Winter: Tori Amos
I had never really cried before while listening at songs. But the one that made me cry is "Saturate Me" by Mandy Moore (on hre new self-titled album). I dunno why, but I just think the song is very sad, about someone wanting help and no one there to offer it.
------------------ - I hope I shall be able to confide in you completely, as I have never been able to do in anyone before, and I hope that you will be a great support and comfort to me.
I don't think I've ever really cried because of a song but a song that would make me cry would definitley be
Iris-Goo Goo Dolls Smashing Pumpkins-1979 Oasis-Wonderwall Matthew Good Band-Strange Days Blink 182-Adams Song/Stay Together for the Kids Badly Drawn Boy-The Shining
And probabaly a bunch of other songs... and just a note those songs aren't necessarily 'sad' songs but they are just songs that have personal meaning I guess you could say and I'd say that some of them could just bring tears to my eyes..haha oh gosh
I think this thread is what's inspired the general Smiths-listening going on here right now. Poor, miserable Morrissey.
Beautiful Boy's another very sad song, though a lot of that has to do with the fact that John Lennon was killed not long after it was released (which I guess makes Grow Old With Me even sadder, because he was already dead when it came out). I guess Ringo was the only Beatle without much sad music.
------------------ Milke, with an L, Mrs BD to you, RATS, TMNTP, MF, CWCD, WAOTA
most of these don't any more because they were related to earlier stages of my life that were considerably less happy. it all has to do with circumstance. i mean, right now i'm listening to elliott smith and grinning from ear to ear. it all depends.
Pink Floyd -- wish you were here Matchbox 20--when you're gone (well, it used to. long story behind that.) Bush--Letting the Cables Sleep much of "Triptych" by the Tea Party
------------------ tie a knife with a ribbon with a red, red ribbon
Not really "cry" songs but certainly ones that get me really emotional.
Journey - "Faithfully" Styx - "Show Me the Way" Don Henley - "Good-Bye to a River" Eric Clapton - "Tears in Heaven" Queen - "Who Wants to Live Forever?" The Who - "Behind Blue Eyes" Foreigner - "I Want to Know What Love Is" Matchbox Twenty - "Push"
Now, behold my nerdiness:
Johannes Brahms - "A Rose is Blooming (Es ist ein ros' entsprungen)"
quote:Originally posted by Gumdrop Girl: real song to cry to... "Lost Cause" Beck
I don't think I've ever cried to a song, but that has more to do with me not being genetically predisposed to tearing up than it does to me not feeling the music. "Lost Cause" hits me every time I hear it, so do Pete Yorn's "June" and Third Eye Blind's "Camoflauge."
I think what affects me more than the melody of any particular song is the memory which is attached to it. I tend to associate points in my life with music, and so there are songs that will come up and instantly throw me back to certain times. REM's "South Central Rain" will forever remind me of my mother's funeral, because that's the song I heard while exiting the cemetery. Pearl Jam's "Daughter" will forever remind me of the Northridge Earthquake, because that's the first song I heard when the power came back on. And, of course, 311's "Amber" will forever remind me of crossing the Bay Bridge with a car full of people I'm indelibly linked to.
I don't think there's any song that makes me cry, I just get broadsided by it every now and again. I'm not feeling sad, but a song will just make me cry. This isn't a very good reply because I can't even come up with the title of a song that has made me cry. There are a lot of sad songs out there (like "Lost Cause" and most of that album, really) which affect me, but I'm not one who tends to cry very often.
I thought of an example, but it's an old one. When I was 8 or 9 I was really sick, and I was watching The Land Before Time, and the end theme, "If we Hold On Together" just broke me up. It still has an effect on me.
I don't listen to country, or newer music in general. However, I was in a sappy mood and listening to Delilah on Warm 106.9. My gramma called, and informed me that her cancer of her mediastine had spread to her brain. I heard the song.
I cannot listen to it without crying. Not possible. Thinking about it makes me a bit teary. It's been a year and a half, but it's still like yesterday...
"Heaven was needing a Hero" by jo dee messiana...or sumthing like that....i heard it on the wayne brady show, she sung it for john ritter after he passed away..... it made me cry then and it really makes me cry now because my grandfather passed away thanksgiving day this year.....and i gave it 2 my mom....
also another one is "dreaming of you" by selena....as someone else said also.... and it really makes me cry when im watching the movie.....
led zepplin - stairway to heaven, just such a beautiful song, bon jovi - someday i'l be saturday night, and bon jovi - always
