I Cry to Music

    The Best

    to me the best music is the music that touches the very core of me, shakes me, and breaks me down in seconds flat. If a song makes me cry, it will forever be one of my favorite songs. I don't do it to be emo. They aren't always about lost loves, after all. I do it to feel...

    Yep.

    There are certain songs that bring tears to my eyes. I'm not exactly sure why but its usually the tone of the song and how to is sang by the artist, the words matter too. I suppose it's becuase I am an emotional person and sometimes they cloud my judgement on certain issues, I...

    I Love It

    I love crying to music - sometimes for no reason other than I feel the need for a good cry. Purplerain is the one song that I always listen to when I feel low and want to have a cry, and also Dolly Partons gypsy, Joe and me. If my husband is away though it's all by myself or when...

    I Cry Too

    Certain music brings memories with it. I'm very sentimental and those memories, if they are bad, elicit my tears. Usually I dislike crying and try to refrain from it while in the presence of others, but when I'm laying in my bed alone at night listening to my ipod, I allow myself...

    Ok, Maybe It's Corny, But...

    When I'm in love, love songs make sense and make me cry like a baby.  When I'm not, I think they're disgusting and useless.  Thankfully, right now I'm in the cry like a baby stage and back to singing with my sweetheart again.

    Music Is Life

    I had trouble as a radio dj because I cry to so many songs. i actually had to pre-tape shows, in part because when the song is right, I just bawl. I love it. I think I would be dead without it. Like Frank Zappa said - MUSIC IS LIFE. My collection with my partners is now about 1...
