    Really Only One Song That Gets Me Crying.

    I lost my father when I was 8 years old, from heart failure. It was sudden, and devastating. My mom was left to pick up all the pieces, and I remember seeing her often listening to the song "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan. It was a difficult for my mom, me, and all of my...

    Blue October

    SOOOOOOOO MANY of Blue Octobers songs make me sob. . This band is a very personal one for me. The lead singer is mentally ill and so am I.I can relate to his lyrics. They are pure raw emotion! I am soooo happy to have seen them live !!!!

    Well, Doesn't Everybody?

    There are several songs which bring tears to my eyes, some of them are tears of sorrow, and some are tears of joy, and others make me laugh so hard that my eyes tear up.But it is all good. That is what a song (music) is  supposed to do.  If it doesn't move someone, it has no...

    Yeah, Sometimes.

      November Rain by Guns N Roses... Definately. Just the lyrics on their own make me want to sob, 'It's hard to hold a candle, in the cold November rain..' Space Oddity by David Bowie- not sure why, just the whole idea of it. I'll add more later x

    Sort Of

    I don't cry for the song.I sometimes cry for the loss of the person that gave me the memory that the song evokes.I think I have it posted elsewhere on EP, but one such song for me is Blue Rodeo's 'Bad Timinig'.  Bad timing seems to be the story of my life, but I'm still...

    Lady A

    There's a bunch of songs that make me tear up (or as close to it as I commonly get).  The current worst is Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now".It reminds me so much of Dave...it first got big about the same time he and I were falling apart.  I remember one of our last...

    My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion is one of those songs. It's such a depressing song, but it's also a wonderful song.

    I hate it when I get angry at someone and with that anger, I start crying. The most of the time I cry is when I am alone. Without anyone knowing that I cry.
