Songs That Make You Cry?

    I figured I'd make this since we have The 'What Song Are You Currently Listening To?' Thread and What song can you not get out of your head? topics already. So...er, what songs have the ability to make you cry in a happy or sad way? :confused: You don't have to give a reason but you can if you want to.

    Here's mine...

    ~Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd (It used to be song a friend and I liked before she moved away. It means a lot more now.)

    ~Jealous Guy by John Lennon

    ~Angel by Sarah McLachlan (It's sad alone, but this song used to play during these animal rescue commercials. </3)

    ~Who Knew by P!nk

    ~Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton (I was too little at the time but I heard from my dad that it played at my uncle's funeral.)

    ~Sunrise, Sunset
    from Fiddler on the Roof ('Nuff said.)

    ~It would take forever to list every Disney and Don Bluth song but there's a lot. XP

    "Find Me An Angel" - Nik Kershaw
    "I Don't Know Why I Still Love You" - Greg Lake
    "River of Tears" - Eric Clapton
    "Saying Goodbye" - from TMTM
    "Love of My Life" - Queen

    I literally can not listen to any of these without tearing up:

    Sally's Pigeons by Cyndi Lauper

    The Last Song by Elton John

    Hush, Hush by Annie Lennox/Herbie Hancock (cover of a Paula Cole song but i've only heard Annie's version)

    And ever since Jim Henson's death and the tribute special, i can never hear any version of Just One Person without crying.

    songs too sad to listen to

    Humanity- Scorpions

    The Last Unicorn-America ( from the movie)

    The songs mean to me too much dying..........hopelessness, everyone leaving...worldwide destruction.

    These are songs I cannot even listen to anymore.
    It just isn't good for my psyche.

    Wind Beneath My Wings -(the day my dad passed away ,this was playing on the radio & I had to tell my brother to turn it off)
    In The Arms Of An Angel (Aille,I'm with you there.Why they need to play that during an ASPCA commercial is beyond me.The commercial's sad enough as it is)
    So Long Old Friend (it was from a Garfield special where Odie & Garfield wound up in the pound)
    Alice Keep Dreaming (this past year was the first year it made me sad because Alice was my friend's mom's name & she passed away last April)
    some Perry Como songs & some Nat King Cole songs (my dad loved songs from both singers)

    Most songs, if not all, from Joni Mitchells' Court and Spark album. I love that album so much, though I'm sure I can think of other examples.

    Oh, just thought of some. I closed this window and for some reason it didn't let me edit my recent post. :confused:

    'America' (Simon and Garfunkel): Arrrggghhh this song chokes me up so much. For some reason, I get very romantic when I think about travelling, and I would love to visit America one day. I have a bad case of wanderlust.

    'Everlong (Foo Fighters): Reminds me of good times and good people.

    'Ventura Highway' (America): Reminds me of little country areas that I'd visit during my early teens, where everything was very simple.

    'Polly' (Nirvana): Pretty much due to the subject of the song, I'm just extremely sensitive about that sort of thing.

    'Suite: Judy Blue Eyes' (Crosby, Stills and Nash): Basically for the same reason as 'Ventura Highway'.

    'Gypsy' (Fleetwood Mac): I've been a Fleetwood Mac fan for quite a few years, and I was fortunate enough to see them live just a little over a year ago. After they played this song, I remember seeing Stevie Nicks hugging Lindsey Buckingham, and I remember chocking up. 'Landslide' and 'Gypsy' also make my eyes prick.

    See you again, Hero. I know no one knows what I'm talking about, but it's from Kinnikuman. They play it every time during a dramatic scene where one of the characters dies.

    The Next To Normal soundtrack. Most depressing musical ever. Especially the songs:

    * He's Not Here
    * Superboy and the Invisible Girl
    * I Dreamed a Dance
    * There's A World
    * I've Been
    * Light in the Dark
    * How Could I Ever Forget?
    * Maybe
    * I Am the One (reprise)

    Oh man. I'm getting choked up just thinking about the songs. Real life, dramatic musicals are so great. Another depressing musical is Last Five Years. It's so good.

    The song "A Boy and His Frog" by Tom Smith. Everyone should check it out, it's a great tribute to Jim Henson and it makes me sob every time.

    Here's a really great tribute video set to the song. The link will take you to youtube and then it'll be all "this video contains inappropriate material" but it doesn't. I really doesn't. It's so good.

    Ellesworth by Rascal Flatts,it's basically about a grandmother who gets alzheimers ( I think)

    The Little Girl by John Michael Montgomery

    Remembering You by Stephen Curtis Chapman (partly because that was the last song I sang to my theatre group in high school and we were a pretty tight knit bunch)
