  • Well, even though I haven't literally cried from it, the power of Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" made me pretty sad the first time I heard it (in The Elephant Man), long before I learned that it was already recognized as being profoundly sad-sounding.
  • Martina McBride's "Concrete Angel" made me cry.
  • "Everytime We Say Goodbye" by Annie Lennox Although, I answered the same way to the "saddest song" question before. Let me see... Something different..... "Missing" by Everything But The Girl
  • Two have really got to me so far: 'The Christmas Shoes' by NEWSONG and Concrete Angel by Martina McBride. Both have made me cry.
  • This happened today: I was driving, listening to 'Everything's Alright' from 'Jesus Christ Superstar', and the beginning of the last verse has this way of coming in... there's a cymbal crash, some symphonic jangly things, and the string section also comes in. The song is so beautiful to begin with, and this amazing dynamic drop just hits your chest like a wall. Also, there's a piece, I believe it's called 'When I am Laid to Earth' from an old opera called 'Dido and Aneas' or something close to that. The female lead and subtle strings are so sad and beautiful, I really don't know how to describe it. But there you go.

  • "I Bowed On My Knees and Cried Holy"
  • A song called "Alissa Lies" not sure who sings it
  • Adams Song by Blink 182 the first time I heard it
  • Mostly overplayed songs like "Achey Breaky Heart". If I hear it again I'll cry, scream, gnash my teeth, pull my hair, tear my clothes, sell my truck and belt buckle, leave my girlfriend and keep my dog.
  • the first time i heard john denver's "annie's song", i cried like a baby. the theme from the movie "glory" does it, everytime.
  • The last one that got me was "Shelter" by Ray LaMontagne. (I just discovered this song last week. It was in the movie "Prime" )
  • At This Moment, by Billy Vera and the Beaters. Lyrics: AT THIS MOMENT Words & Music by Billy Vera What did you think I would do At This Moment When you're standing before me With tears in your eyes Trying to tell me that you Have found you another And you just don't love me no more What did you think I would say At This Moment When I'm faced with the knowledge That you just don't love me Did you think I would curse you Or say things to hurt you Cause you just don't love me no more Did you think I could hate you Or raise my hands to you Now, come on, you know me too well How could I hurt you When Darlin' I love you And you know, I'd never, never hurt you What do you think I would give At This Moment If you'd stay, I'd subtract Twenty years from my life I'd fall down on my knees Kiss the ground that you walk on If I could just hold you again Copyright 1979 by WB Music/Vera-Cruz Music Co., ASCAP
  • I have to say "fast car" by Tracy Chapman also
  • A lot of the country-western ballads can jerk some tears out of me. I especially like "Don't Take The Girl" -- don't know who the artist is, or if that's even the right song title. It starts out, "Johnny's daddy was taking him fishing...." and a little girl wanted to go too. He tells his daddy to take any boy, but don't take the girl. Then ten years later, he's dating this same girl. They're held up by a gun man, and Johnny tells him to take everything of his, including his grandpa's watch, but don't take the girl. In the final chorus,five years later, they're married, she's having a baby and there are complications. He pleads in his prayer, don't take the girl. A real tear jerker, that one. There are others, that everytime I hear them, the water works start. I thought I was the only one who is overly sentimental and can cry when hearing songs. I'm glad I'm not alone.
  • The baby by Blake Shelton
  • "Fix You" by Coldplay. I don't know why, its not particularly sappy but for some reason it makes me sort of tear up.

  • Angel by Sarah Mclachlan Another one is by an Aussie band you've probably never heard of, it is HUGE in AUs... Throw your arms around me by the hunters and collectors...you should download it.

  • "Bell Bottom Blues" - Derek and the Dominos. This was the first Eric Clapton track that REALLY bit into me. The lyrics convey utter pain and longing; Clapton penned this one while pining over George Harrison's wife. It is an incredibly passionate love song.

  • Sinead O'Connor nothing compares to you
  • the song from the movies Beaches, sung by Bett Midler, "The wind beneath my wings," and the hit song from the titanic sung by Celion Dion, "life goes on " I think
  • Only ONE song has ever made me cry. It's the lyrics yes, but it's mostly the way it is sung - with such passion. The song is 'BED OF LIES' by Matchbox Twenty. It's so very beautiful, heartfelt. LYRICS: No I would not sleep in this bed of lies So toss me out and turn in And there'll be no rest for these tired eyes I'm marking it down to learning I am Don't think that I can take another empty moment Don't think that I can fake another hollow smile It's not enough just to be sorry. Don't think that I could take another talk about it Just like me you got needs And they're only a whisper away And we softly surrender To these lives that we've tendered away No I would not sleep in this bed of lies So toss me out and turn in And they'll be no rest for these tired eyes I'm marking it down to learning I am Don't wanna be the one who turns the whole thing over Don't wanna be somewhere where I just don't belong Where it's not enough just be sorry Don't you know I feel the darkness closing in Tried to be more than me And I gave 'til it all went away And we've only surrendered To the worst part of these winters we've made I am all that I'll ever be When you - lay your hands Over me but don't go weak on me now I know that it's weak But God help me I need this I will not sleep in this bed of lies I hope you'll listen to it.

  • "Lonesome Town", specifically the cover done by Milton Mapes for the Stubbs the Zombie (that's a video game) soundtrack. My long-distance boyfriend shared that soundtrack with me a while back, so I heard that song before. When he came over to visit me and we were laying in bed together, he played it on his Zune and I cried while he held me because we knew our time together was limited and soon both of our towns would be lonesome. Now, it's playing in both of our heads constantly while we're apart.... ~*~*~*~*~*~ There's a place where lovers go To cry their troubles away And they call it Lonesome Town Where the broken hearts stay [Lonesome town] You can buy a dream or two, To last you all through the years And the only price you pay Is a heart full of tears [Full of tears] Goin' down to lonesome town, Where the broken hearts stay, Goin' down to lonesome town To cry my troubles away. In the town of broken dreams, The streets are filled with regret, Maybe down in lonesome town, I can learn to forget. [To forget] Maybe down in lonesome town, I can learn to forget, [Lonesome town] ~*~*~*~*~*~
  • Yes, Tulips from Amsterdam by Tiny Tim!
  • The Highwayman by Loreena McKennitt. I still get misty-eyed every time I hear it, or read the original poem by Alfred Noyes. Here it is below: ***** The wind was a torrent of darkness upon the gusty trees, The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, The road was a ribbon of moonlight looping the purple moor, And the highwayman came riding-- Riding--riding-- The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn door. He'd a French cocked hat on his forehead, and a bunch of lace at his chin; He'd a coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of fine doe-skin. They fitted with never a wrinkle; his boots were up to his thigh! And he rode with a jeweled twinkle-- His rapier hilt a-twinkle-- His pistol butts a-twinkle, under the jeweled sky. Over the cobbles he clattered and clashed in the dark inn-yard, He tapped with his whip on the shutters, but all was locked and barred, He whistled a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there But the landlord's black-eyed daughter-- Bess, the landlord's daughter-- Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair. Dark in the dark old inn-yard a stable-wicket creaked Where Tim, the ostler listened--his face was white and peaked-- His eyes were hollows of madness, his hair like mouldy hay, But he loved the landlord's daughter-- The landlord's black-eyed daughter; Dumb as a dog he listened, and he heard the robber say: "One kiss, my bonny sweetheart; I'm after a prize tonight, But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light. Yet if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day, Then look for me by moonlight, Watch for me by moonlight, I'll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way." He stood upright in the stirrups; he scarce could reach her hand, But she loosened her hair in the casement! His face burnt like a brand As the sweet black waves of perfume came tumbling o'er his breast, Then he kissed its waves in the moonlight (O sweet black waves in the moonlight!), And he tugged at his reins in the moonlight, and galloped away to the west. He did not come in the dawning; he did not come at noon. And out of the tawny sunset, before the rise of the moon, When the road was a gypsy's ribbon over the purple moor, The redcoat troops came marching-- Marching--marching-- King George's men came marching, up to the old inn-door. They said no word to the landlord; they drank his ale instead, But they gagged his daughter and bound her to the foot of her narrow bed. Two of them knelt at her casement, with muskets by their side; There was Death at every window, And Hell at one dark window, For Bess could see, through her casement, the road that he would ride. They had bound her up at attention, with many a sniggering jest! They had tied a rifle beside her, with the barrel beneath her breast! "Now keep good watch!" and they kissed her. She heard the dead man say, "Look for me by moonlight, Watch for me by moonlight, I'll come to thee by moonlight, though Hell should bar the way." She twisted her hands behind her, but all the knots held good! She writhed her hands till her fingers were wet with sweat or blood! They stretched and strained in the darkness, and the hours crawled by like years, Till, on the stroke of midnight, Cold on the stroke of midnight, The tip of one finger touched it! The trigger at least was hers! The tip of one finger touched it, she strove no more for the rest; Up, she stood up at attention, with the barrel beneath her breast. She would not risk their hearing, she would not strive again, For the road lay bare in the moonlight, Blank and bare in the moonlight, And the blood in her veins, in the moonlight, throbbed to her love's refrain. Tlot tlot, tlot tlot! Had they heard it? The horse-hooves, ringing clear; Tlot tlot, tlot tlot, in the distance! Were they deaf that they did not hear? Down the ribbon of moonlight, over the brow of the hill, The highwayman came riding-- Riding--riding-- The redcoats looked to their priming! She stood up straight and still. Tlot tlot, in the frosty silence! Tlot tlot, in the echoing night! Nearer he came and nearer! Her face was like a light! Her eyes grew wide for a moment, she drew one last deep breath, Then her finger moved in the moonlight-- Her musket shattered the moonlight-- Shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him--with her death. He turned, he spurred to the West; he did not know who stood Bowed, with her head o'er the casement, drenched in her own red blood! Not till the dawn did he hear it, and his face grew grey to hear How Bess, the landlord's daughter, The landlord's black-eyed daughter, Had watched for her love in the moonlight, and died in the darkness there. Back, he spurred like a madman, shrieking a curse to the sky, With the white road smoking behind him and his rapier brandished high! Blood-red were his spurs in the golden noon, wine-red was his velvet coat When they shot him down in the highway, Down like a dog in the highway, And he lay in his blood in the highway, with the bunch of lace at his throat. And still on a winter's night, they say, when the wind is in the trees, When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, When the road is a gypsy's ribbon looping the purple moor, The highwayman comes riding-- Riding--riding-- The highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door. Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard, He taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred, He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there But the landlord's black-eyed daughter-- Bess, the landlord's daughter-- Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair. -- Alfred Noyes

  • When I was a small girl, there was a song on the radio called the Green Hills of Tyrol. It was about a Scottish soldier who went to war, but all he thought about was home. Here are the lyrics: There was a soldier, a Scottish soldier Who wandered far away and soldiered far away There was none bolder, with good broad shoulders, He fought in many a fray and fought and won He's seen the glory, he's told the story Of battles glorious and deeds victorious But now he's sighing his heart is crying To leave these green hills of Tyrol. Chorus: Because these green hills are not highland hills Or the Island's hills, they're not my lands hills, As fair as these green foreign hills may be They are not the hills of home. 2. And now this soldier, this Scottish soldier, Who wandered far away and soldiered far away Sees leaves are falling, and death is calling And he will fade away, on that dark land He called his piper, his trusty piper And bade him sound away, a pibroch sad to play Upon a hillside but Scottish hillside Not on these green hills of Tyrol Chorus: 3. And now this soldier this Scottish soldier Who wanders far no more, and soldiers far no more Now on a hillside, a Scottish hillside You'll see a piper play this soldier home He's seen the glory, he's told the story Of battles glorious and deeds victorious But he will cease now, he is at peace now Far from these green hills of Tyrol Chorus:
