Rod thank you so much.

When I recieved the phone call that my wonderful father had passed away my youngest daughter and i sat down and cried over a cup of coffee and put the radio on, Aaron Neville's "Don't know much" was the first song we heard...in tears now just thinking about it..thank you for the songs.

Love and hugs

There are a few songs by Boy George which always leave me with wet eyes, like "If I could Fly", but even more "Unfinished business" and "Il Adore" which are all on same CD.

Silence equals death, this is what they say
But the anger and the tears do not take the pain away
How far must it go, how near must it be
Before it touches you, before it touches me.

I've got two. One is sappy enough to qualify and the other one just has a personal connection

1) elvis singing "don't cry daddy"
there's one to show my age and heritage (being from the South)  ;D Actually elvis was my mom's favorite artist; but at 7 yrs old, you like whoever your parents are listening to LOL. This song just kicks me in the gut as the dad tries to hide his grief from the kids; but the kids know and only want their daddy to be happy.  :'(

2) smashing pumpkins - "disarm"
Although this isn't really a "sad" song, it does have a personal tie that'll make me teary. Not long after this album (Siamese Dream) was issued, I lost my partner to AIDS and very worried about my own mortality. These lyrics just ripped at my heart every time I heard them; especially the line: "The killer in me is the killer in you"

Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one whos left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
Whats a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you



 :(  mikie
(who knows the "bitterness of one who's left alone", understands how "the years burn", still often wonders "what's a boy supposed to do?"; but takes his meds to fight "the killer in me"  ;) )

That I live and you are gone.

There's a pain goes on and on.

100 Years by Five for Fighting

This is a somewhat formulaic pop tune, but like so many others here I have associations with it. I am turning 50, so I am reflective. When I first heard this song on the radio, I was just dumped by a guy I really liked and was hoping to turn our relationship into something nice. (Never mind that he was a jerk and that being the Dumpee is never as much fun as being the Dumper.)

When I told someone I liked this song, she rolled her eyes and said it was used in some commercial on TV. I have no TV so I am not enencumbered by some company's drivel........

The song that gets to me is" If God Was One Of Us".  The part of the lyrics that gets to me is: If God had a name, what would it be, and would you call it to his face . . ." I love the arrangement and the young lady's voice sends chills up my spine.

If God Was One of Us


If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints and all the prophets

And yeah yeah god is great yeah yeah god is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
He's trying to make his way home
Back up to Heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in Rome

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the pope maybe in Rome

Agree that a lot of the songs here are cry-worthy.  Being a music person, lots of these songs make me cry.  One that always does it for me is "Baby Mine" from Dumbo.  My Mom used to sing it to me all the time when I was a little kid.  It brings back memories...

Thanks for the Dumbo link. I had a Dumbo record when I was a kid. I played that thing on the record player so many times I must have it memorised.

Good memories.

I don't recall ever crying from a song.  Movies, yes -- in fact I've often cried from even really, REALLY bad movies.

That's me to a T! I cry at a LOT of movies. I think it's because they all trigger sad memories in me. Maybe if I had fewer sad memories I'd have fewer triggers.  ???

I've seen this movie more times than I could count. This song is a goosebump inducing tear jerker.

Oh! Me too, girl.  Hallelujah! i must be human.
I went solo for my first viewing of The Color Purple. In New Orleans at an old theater on Canal St.
I cried right there in that theater seat when she sang that song. When I realized that my cheeks were all wet I was kinda shocked and trying to hide in my chair...but no one there cared, really.

 One song that has always makes  me cry  is " Goodbye" By Patti Loveless. I believe that is the Title and Artist.                                                   Part of it goes like this .                                                                               Sitting with momma , alone in her bed room. She opened her eyes and squeezed my hand. She said I have to go now , my time here is over. Another final word she tried to help me understand. Momma whispered softly. Time will ease your pain, life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same. She said How can I help you to say goodbye. It's okay to hurt and it's okay to cry. Come let me hold you and I will try. How can I help you to say goodbye .                               That song gets me every time. Cristy

My mother and I used to drive back and forth to the beach every weekend for a month in our 65 Ford Pick-up. Singing a Heuy Lewis song at the top of our lungs.  We thought he was singing "  I want a new TRUCK" and he was really singing " I want a new DRUG" we laughed so hard we cried when we figured it out.
DUH....two dumb blondes ::)
Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important

The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge..

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.

I don't know if this has already been posted, but here's one for me.

Both Sides Now
(Joni Mitchell)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqQlfFuQFXo

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and they snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way that you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
And you leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions that I recall
I really don't know love
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

Oh but now old friends they are acting strange
And they shake their heads and they tell me that I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

It's life's illusions that I recall
I really don't know life
I really don't know life at all
