There have been many songs that have made me cry in the past, but now I could care less. However, some that have that come to mind are "Time to Say Goodbye," (English version), "You're Breaking My Heart," "Say Something ," "Love Yourself," and "I Can't Help Falling in Love."

Many more I've probably forgotten. I guess I'm an emotional person. It's weird for a fire sign.

Who are these songs by? How can I know if they'd have the same affect if I don't know who they're by. I'm only reasonably sure of who did one title there, and that could still be the Elvis or the UB40 version, could even be the Elvis "laughing" version - I'm often in tears (of laughter) at the end of that.

Don't just name songs, tell me who they're by!

Bringing this thread back because I have an addition or two to those I posted a page back :

"Veronica" by Elvis Costello. An old woman sits in a nursing home, quietly losing her memories to Alzheimer's disease. Costello wrote this with Paul McCartney , and its inspiration comes from his own grandmother, who had Alzheimer's. Listening to it, the lyrics, it just touches me.  

"Do you suppose that waiting, hands on eyes, Veronica has gone to hide? And all the time she laughs at those who shout her name and steal her clothes... Veronica ... Veronica"

"Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M. This is the "anti suicide song". I can't listen to it without thinking about a couple of people in my life who hurt, so badly, and saw no other way out. I ache for them, as I do for anyone who feels like they've had enough, and feel like hope is gone.

"When your day is long and the night... the night is yours alone. When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on, don't let yourself go. Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes."

I guess I'm just a big mushy mush mush.  ahdn_paul_01 paul-mccartney

Yeah, I need to leave this thread. *dabs at eyes with the corner of her kleenex*

Recently, a bunch of Monkees songs have been making me very upset. I Wanna Be Free, Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow), and As We Go Along

Well, here's only a very short list 'cause I can never seem to remember such things when I come across an appropriate thread for them. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

- Ten Years Gone by Led Zeppelin makes me want to cry sometimes, especially the bits about eagles and nests. Pure poetry, this tune is. 

- Various songs from The Wall usually make me quite sad (Goodbye Blue Sky, Mother , Nobody Home, Goodbye Cruel World, etc. etc.) I think it might be how much I can relate to some of the lyrics, I guess.

- Wish You Were Here is another Floyd song that makes me want to cry, as it reminds me of me and one of my friends that I haven't seen in quite a while.

 

I'll probably remember more and come back. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I almost cried at "the light behind your eyes" by my chemical romance. And the music video for "the ghost of you" (also by my chemical romance) made me cry

I can really bawl my eyes out to music. 

John Lennon -Imagine (was played at my grandpa's funeral when they carried the coffin to the grave)
John Denver-Annie's Song (reminds me of both of my grandparents. It really was their song)
Let It Be (no specific reason)
Ludovico Einaudi (bawled when I heard it at the end of Les Intouchables, and when my grandma died and I had to pick a song to play after my speech, I immediately knew it had to be this one. Obviously bawled my eyes out again)
Art Garfunkel-Bright Eyes (no specific reason)
Andrea Boccelli-Con Te Partiro (always made me cry, but it was also played when the coffin was let down in the grave at my grandma's funeral. It was so perfect, but damn, never cried this hard in my life)

Have you guys ever listened to argentinian music? My favourite band is soda stereo, was very famous in latin america in 80's and 90's.

The singer of the band gustavo cerati wrote a song called "te para tres" (a tee for three), is about how his father told he and his mother he had cancer. While in a café. 

Also the song "zona de promesas" in a part he says something like "i just want to come back and tell my mum i love her"

He died from an ACV after 4 years in coma in 2014.

I'll agree with I Wanna Be Free... just listened to it the other day and cried a bit... Davy was my first love as a little girl, and he's so very missed. paul-mccartney

I was just listening to some Carpenters stuff this week, and as I listened it hit me like a ton of bricks and I found myself tearing up. Karen's voice just touches that place in you, you sense that edge of melancholy there. She could bring such joy one minute and break your heart the next with that voice.

A few songs which get to me and I only just realised they're both quite political.  Marvin Gaye's Abraham, Martin and John.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond by ThisBandShouldNoLongerNeedAnyMoreAddressingThanksToTheLikesOfSillyGirl; more specifically Part IX. Ricky really does pour his heart into his fingers, which in turn create such poignant melodies on his keyboards. At the end when he plays that little bit of 'See Emily Play' I always get a little choked up. For sure one of the most touching pieces of music I've ever heard. heart

Simon & Garfunkel's The Only Living Boy in New York always gets me on the verge of tears. The Boxer, Kathy's Song, and April Come She Will also can match TOLBINY from time to time when it comes to their emotion.

I also may cry during Valjean's Soliloquy, One Day More, or Javert's Suicide from Les Mis.

I don't know if I am alone in this but I think this is a real masterpiece and a beautiful sad song. Crowded House - People are like Suns
