    Amazing grace at a funeral. Rips my heart out.

    And this one

    You need to understand lyrics

    "Walk Around the Lake" by Lost In The Trees

    #206 1 year ago

    Barf.

    For me it's Weekend in New England, one of my late wife's faves and played at her funeral.

    #207 1 year ago

    "Seasons in the Sun" by Terry Jacks. Well, makes me sad anyways. I don't know if ANY song actually makes me cry....

    #208 1 year ago

    This particular version gets me in the feels every effin time.

    #209 1 year ago

    Keep me in your heart - Warren Zevon. One of the best, most underappreciated, and honest song writers at his most vulnerable.

    For a dancer - Jackson Browne

    If I were to go back and listen to any song by Mister Fred Rogers from his television show, that would probably do it for me.

    Sure, sure they would.....

    I was gonna downvote you until you mentioned your wife's passing. My condolences. I'm a progressive rock/metal fan and have liked Savatage since I was a kid. It's an album thing for me.

    John Belushi doing Joe Cocker's Beatles impression.

    #214 1 year ago

    no song has ever made me cry but being a teacher i can totally relate to "To Sir with Love" by Lulu, especially now as the school year comes to an end. hard not to connect with some really special kids that for some reason stand out and i will never forget. fortunately with social media, i have been able to stay in touch and even stay close to a hand full, going to their college graduations, weddings, kid's baptism, ...

    #215 1 year ago

    One of my favorite movies and songs. Saw it about 5 times when it first came out.

    I probably deserved it, though I'd never see it anyway, as I turned off downvotes being displayed a while back. Still, no need to criticize anyone's song, though I can't quite grasp how anyone could disagree what song makes someone else barf!

    Yep, eight years after her passing, and I pulled up ol' Barry after posting before and two seconds later, here come the waterworks.

    Someone posted a link to that Pavarotti clip of him singing Nissun Dorma at the Olympics. That gets me choked up every time, such power! Not quite to the point of tears, though. I watched that again earlier, same result. Then I was just watching episode 5 of Goliath, and they used that same recording on the last scene, freaky coincidence!

    Parts of Phish's song The Divided Sky give me the chills too, but it's not sad.

    It'd be nice if those posting links to YouTube would also caption them, I'm not clicking on every one just to see what they are.

    Hummer by smashing pumpkins gets me so does jumper

    #218 1 year ago

    "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle....if you have a daughter, brace yourself.

    1st time I heard it, pulled over and cried like a baby.....still gets me...

    #219 1 year ago

    Elton John- Ticking

    He played it when I saw him in '82 and it was very moving.

    Soma by Smashing Pumpkins is a great one too.

    Quoted from SteveO:

    Elton John- Ticking

    And I would add Goodbye Yellow Brick Road from Capt. Fantastic also

    Row, row, row your boat... always a tear...

    #222 1 year ago

    If I'm drinking at a bar and everyone is clogging up my ears with karaoke Country music, I pull out my secret weapon.

    I ask the DJ to tune it down a half-step for me so it's in my range.

    I'm suprised this thread fizzled out.....too many macho men/woman out there?? Lol.

    Bah, the Boll Weevil song by Brook. Or, really mess around with Copacabana by Barry Manilow.

    #226 1 year ago
    Quoted from MrBally:

    Neither of those songs are sad.

    Well, Copacabana is, but in a different way.....

    #227 1 year ago
    Quoted from o-din:

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

    Came in expecting Cats In the Cradle

    This Mortal Coil - Song To The Siren

    #229 1 year ago

    TMC does a servicable job on Song To The Siren, but Brian Ferry is probably "the" version to beat:

    #230 1 year ago

    Robert Plant gave Siren a pretty good shot also:

    #231 1 year ago

    Then if we want to follow this train of thought, Tim Buckley (the guy who wrote "Song To The Siren") son, Jeff Buckley, did "the" version of Hallelujah.

    That song is an instant tear jerk, and has been recorded so many times that the writer, Lenard Cohen, asked that people quit recording it.

    Jeff Buckley - "Hallelujah"

    #232 1 year ago

    Death "Voice of the Soul"
    Rainbow "Rainbow Eyes" and "The Snowman"

    After someone's mention of the song on Vinyl Club thread, I realized

    Black Sabbath - Changes

    Always tugged a heart string.

    Hell is for children. Pat Benatar

    #249 1 year ago

    I figure there is no point starting an eargasm thread with this one already going, but that's what this song is all about.

    I give you Florence and the Machine.

    This one gets me melancholy. Favorite Zep song. The Rain Song
