I think Let It Be is the only Beatles song that made me actually cry and that's because it came on at the right time, twice in my life so far.

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change....

Mother Nature's Son (take 2) is Paul on vocal and guitar.

 

 

Why did you say this? I knew that, I never said John was singing, I said Mother Nature's Son (Take 2) OR a peaceful John song.

I agree, cool story. Mother gives me the creeps. It's so intense and personal, and the bells, and the screaming...first time I heard it, I was literally shaking.

Across The Universe! Lennon's vocals are so clear, and the lyrics are so profound; they really make one think. I cry EVERY time I hear that, same with Oh Yoko! because I miss John SO much. When I watch A Hard Day's Night or see happy pictures of John or George, I have to remind myself, "Oh, they're dead" paul-mccartney

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8NOOOO! Don't remind yourself they're dead! Think about their life rather than their death. Think of them as the beautiful people they are and love them... I try not to think of them as dead... but right now it's hitting in after listening to "How Do You Sleep??" "Dear Friend" "Here Today" and "My Old Friend" a-hard-days-night-paul-10 Don't hurt yourself too hard by thinking they're dead... be happy! apple01

I am very happy, and one reason is because I have The Beatles. Thank you!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

That is one strong list of reality inducing songs. Not surprising it brings home George and John's loss to you.

The first few listenings of Here Today hit me, still does at times. Paul is very honest and upfront in how he feels and it results in one of his best songs ever. A very fitting tribute to John. And once again George Martins score is not overly burdensome.

I have shed tears while watching Youtube videos of pictures of Paul and John having fun with Here Today playing in the background. God, Free As A Bird and Real Love have also made me well up a little. The Long And Winding Road has brought a lump to my throat before, and Dear Friend makes me feel sad in a sort of desolate, bitter way, especially the demo version where you can hear Linda and the children playing and talking in the background.

Before I became a Beatles Fan, I never cried to any song. I remember, the first Beatles song I cried for, was "You Never Give Me Your Money", when Paul sings "One sweet dream came true today", 'cause I just thought about being at the Abbey Road Studios and all that... Then I cried to "All You Need Is Love", when I watched the "All Together Now" documentary about the making of the "Love" show. One day I cried while listening to "Let it Be", 'cause I thought about how it would be when my dad would die, and I just adore him. I also cried when I listened to "All Things Must Pass" (the Beatles version), 'cause the lyrics are so beautiful, and George sings it just wonderfully. There are so many other Beatles songs I cried to, like "Junk", "Golden Slumbers", "Something" (especially when Paul played it at the two concerts I went), "It's All Too Much" (the lyrics are gorgeous), "A Day In The Life" (just so mind-blowing) and some others. There are also some songs from the Beatles' solo career that make me cry, like "Mother", "Jealous Guy", "What Is Life", "Love", "Oh My Love", "How?", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Here Today", "Dear Friend", "Love in Song", "So Bad" and also "Beautiful Boy". I will stop my list, or it will go on for ever...

Let It Be is the only song that made me cry. I'd just made a decision to move back to Mississippi and the song came on as I crossed the Mississippi River into the state. It was perfect timing and the tears just started to roll.

Same here, Starisson McLennon a-hard-days-night-george-10. Across The Universe makes me cry along with any other John song, such as Oh Yoko!

When I first started reading this thread the first song I thought of was Here Today

I know have tears in my eyes just thinking about.

The worst thing I have ever had to tell someone was to my sister that John was dead.

She let out a scream that could be heard for miles.

"Let It Be" made me lose it while driving on the interstate Friday. I've heard it a billion times, but it hit me hard in a way it had never done before. But I guess that's just the magic of The Beatles for ya: over time, old songs become new experiences. heart

I´ve never found Let It Be to be one that makes me cry, or even sad. I know my mom cries before he´s past the first line but I have never cried becuase of it. It´s a happy song in a way, his mom goes to him when he needs help, and he helps her. So why cry? It´s good!

Always, always, ALWAYS cry at In My Life, Because and While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Can´t help it.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Here Today always gets me. "What about the night we cried?  Because there wasn't any reason left to keep it all inside,"...and I genuinely think that Paul finds it an emotional song to perform. When he performs Yesterday, its like he's going through the motions, but with Here Today its very personal to him, and that makes you, as the audience, more in touch with it. And the end, "For you are here today...for you are in my song," sums up the message of most of Paul's music (Beatles and post-Beatles)- music will save us all.

 

Also, in The End,  the descending notes between "is equal to the love," and "you make," make me cry a bit. Listening to The End is always a bit of an emotional rollercoaster.

 

I've been known to cry at Let It Be (especially, "And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be,") and recently I've been tearing up in For No One. Just thinking about how disappointed he is, because he believed that the love would (and should) last years, but it hasn't and now he has to come to terms with that.

 

Sorry if that was all a bit angsty
