    First thing I did when I came home from Baltimore after finding out about Jerry Nelson's death a few days before: Went on Youtube and immediately went to his (Floyd's) rendition of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." And tried not to cry.
    R.I.P Jerry.....:sing:

    Adele makes songs that make people cry now? Huh, I guess she's branching out from that little pit of narcissism that Taylor Swift can't seem to ever climb out of.

    It doesn't make me cry or sad, I don't even like the song, but since I didn't know where else to put it, the beginning of that "Dream Weaver" song is creepy.

    Just had to search it up, yeah it's weird for sure and sounds like it could of been a soundtrack on the changers or somthing.

    I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables, Wherever you Are from Pooh's Grand Adventure, Pictures in my Head from the Muppets, Feed the Birds from Mary Poppins (especially the Saving Mr. Banks version), His Daughter by Molly Kate Kestner, and Shattered by Trading Yesterday never fail to make me cry.
    Also Tomorrow from Annie because I was in that play a few years ago, and as I was approaching the age limit, I thought it was going to be my very last play I'd ever do. Needless to say, I cried like a baby during the final rehearsal. But thank God I'm still acting today :')
    And I think You're Not Sorry by Taylor Swift made me cry the first time I heard it...

    Wow! I agree with I Dreamed a Dream and Feed the Birds (I LOVED Saving Mr. Banks by the way) Also...On My Own from Les Miserables gets me as well...because I well came out this year and had a crush on a boy that would never like me.

    "Goin' Back" by The Byrds. It captures the mixed emotions about growing older and longing for your younger days perfectly.

    I always tear up when I hear this song, because it reminds me of my late grandmother, who owned a costume shop and loved old movies. It's very nostalgic.
