    The Woodbox Gang - Dusty, Dozer, and Grandpa

    See if you can make it through this one. Can't even listen to it anymore.

    Stevie Wonder's "You are the sunshine of my life" was the song I shared with my Mom. On the other hand Stevie always makes me smile uncontrollably when I hear "I Wish"

    Well Amazing Grace has been played at 4 funerals of friends and loved ones I’ve lost over the last two years. Especially on bagpipes when I’m a pallbearer (all 4). Other than that, some of the versions of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” have been known to choke me up. I’m not so sure it’s a sad song but I know it’s a beautiful one.

    My favorite Stevie track is Stay Gold. Powerful and brilliant all the way through.

    Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks. Kind of a happy and sad song all at the same time

    #58 10 months ago
    Quoted from Jenniebear:Hurt - Johnny Cash

    Great song! Even better than the original.

    #59 10 months ago

    Here are 2 sad songs. Have not gotten me to cry but both are sometimes hard to listen to.

    "Seasons in the Sun", Terry Jacks. (and o-din posts it while I was typing)
    "Dance with my Father", Luther Vandross.

    This one makes me laugh and cry at the same time. My late dad bought the 45 in 1956 and used to play it a lot.

    Thunderbird by Quiet Riot.
    Always makes me think of my brother that passed in 2013. We were 80s kids.
    I generally try to focus on things that make me happy though

    The National Anthem.

    Quoted from o-din:

    Ok what about Cats in the Cradle? That is a serious tear jerker there.

    That might have me tearing up I. The car since my son whom I love more than I can say, even though he is an asshole, is going to college in 3 months.

    #65 10 months ago

    Cats in The Cradle sure hits home when your kids are all grown up.

    If you don't mind me asking, how did your brother pass away so young? If I offend you, just ignore the post. I am curious because I have a lot of medical problems and have had strokes and am about to have open heart surgery number three, and I am under 40. The reason I started this thread is because I have to go under the knife again and I'm scared for my daughter if something happens to me. I listened to the Album Streets by Savatage and started bawling my eyes out. I'm not normally sentimental, but major surgery has a way of bringing that out.

    Thanks. I appreciate that. As Tom Petty once said, " The waiting is hardest part".

    I'm not a religious man in the least, but I Can Only Imagine by MercyMe gets to me.

    I really like this version.

    Not quite cry, but seriously humbling. Street Spirit by Radiohead.

    At my wedding my wife came down the aisle to the Force Theme. It was timed perfectly so at 51 seconds in when the music swells she turned the corner and that’s when I and everyone else first saw her. I feel like my chest is gonna burst still when I hear this song.

    American Pie who reminds me of my dad he used to sing it I remember when that song came out I believe it was in the early 70s

    My brother was 43 at the time and the cause was found to be an enlarged heart.
    There was a lot of tragedy about it because it was an instant all of the sudden thing ,he was in a bad place in his life etc and I could go into great detail but it is just how things went down.
    Whatever it is you are facing I wish you the best and hope you focus on the positives as much as possible.

    Cats and the Cradle hits home for me, just weeks before I retired and would finally have time to spend with my Dad I lost him. As a kid I always remember him singing this song to me, still can hear his voice singing it loud and clear just like Harry.

    #83 10 months ago

    Just because of where I was, and not because of the lyrics or anything, but "Jesus is Just Alright" by the Doobie Brothers. My brother died of leukemia when I was in high school. He had just got married and was in his mid-twenties. He picked the songs for his funeral. I remember this blasting at the church, and knew he would have liked the looks of some of the older folks faces expecting more traditional type music.

    I'm Going Home Hootie and the Blowfish. The day my mother passed away, I was walking the dogs at night as usual, listening to music. This song came on. I had never really HEARD it before. For those that don't know it, first verse:
    Mama please don't go
    Won't you stay one more day
    I've been your boy for so long now
    There so much more I still have to say

    Brought me to tears...still does today

    #85 10 months ago

    Not sure if anybody watched The Leftovers...awesome show. If Max Richter’s music doesn’t make you cry, it definitely makes you think. It’s almost like theme music for a sad event. End of Our Exploring and November are two of the best.

    While I tend not to be the emotional type, I will admit to noticing feelings when I hear Willie sing "Always on my mind."

    Probably my favorite scene in any movie. John Williams is amazing and also just a great shot.

    Ok, this actually does make me tear up watching the movie Inception...especially after having my daughter. And movie was beyond excellent...Leo was robbed for the Oscar. Time by Hans Zimmer.

    And a great live version at the premier...

    My son moved out today to his first apartment three hours away. He just got a great job.

    I am a proud dad. Been crying all day

    Good call. The music in that show just drove the stake deeper with the heartbreaking theme of that show, which I agree was excellent.
