Broken Vow and Per Te both by the beautiful Josh Groban.

"Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane<br />
<br />
It always reminds me of my mother. I heard it again last night.

YES!<br />
<br />
your not alone- micheal jackson.<br />
<br />
<br />
on the day died Mj.heard our local radio stations.all radio stations make a tribute about him on that day..

And currently any Michael Jackson song will make me start crying too.

How To Save a Life by The Fray because it was Adria's favorite song and she died two years ago of meningitis. The last time I heard it was about a week ago with my friends in the car, we had all been screaming and singing and then when it came on we all just got silent. That song still makes me cry, especially if I watch the video with al these pictures this guy made about her on youtube with this song playing.

<p>Sorry by Buck Cherry bc it reminds me of my ex husband and I last heard it last month.&nbsp; Also Daddy Hands by some country singer bc my dad died when I was 14 and it's been awhile since I heard it.</p>

<p>I hope the Russians love their children too - by Sting</p><br />
<p>Last heard - quite awhile back I'm afraid.</p>

<p>Eric Clapton's 'Tears in Heaven'. It's played nearly everyday on our C-D we play in the lobby at work. I always have to get up and go to another room until it's over. It was played at my cousin's funeral. I wish she didn't leave us, I miss her.</p>

<p>Yes it is the last song on Justin Timberlakes latest. I can't remember the name, but he talks about how he messed up his life with cocaine.</p><br />
<p>And he does not even know the color of his daughters eyes. So very sad about a messed up life.</p>

<p>'Cats in the Cradle' by Harry Chapin; 'Holes in the Floor of Heaven' by Colin Raye; '500 Miles' by Peter Paul & Mary; 'Both Sides Now' by Joni Mitchell; 'Go Rest High on the Mountain' by Vince Gill; 'Wind Beneath My Wings' by Bette Midler; 'Imagine' by John Lennon; 'Concrete Angel' by Martina McBride; </p><br />
<p>Guess I should stop. Oh my, sometimes I can be a water-works over songs.</p><br />
<p>Songs are wonderful at bringing out feeling and emotion.</p>

<p>Daniel by Elton John I heard it&nbsp; about 1 month ago</p>

<p>Colors of the Wind, and When Eagles Cry </p>

<p>"Your are the wind beneath my wings", by Bet Midler was popular when my father passed away and when I heard it I was overcome with grief.</p>

<p>It would have to be that 70's song, "Seasons in the Sun".&nbsp; That is just the saddest song ever.&nbsp; It is so embarrising, whenever I hear it I cry.&nbsp; I've been shopping a few times and that song has played, and my eyes well up with tears.&nbsp; How embarrising.</p><br />
<p>Oh, another one is "Old Shep" about the dog that got shot.&nbsp; That's also very sad.</p>

<p>for me its no me ames by enrique iglesias and jennifer lopez</p>

<p>yes it is chak de india because it always reminds me about the mistake i had done.i heard that song just today.</p>

<p>&nbsp;"Wild Horses" by Natasha Beddingfield..... last heard it 2 months ago.....everytime i hear reminds me of my dad who passed away when i was 15......and i felt exactly this way..... my mum had to sell our home and start over....its still reminds me of those memories, the times we shared, his smile.....i just miss him!!!</p>

<p>There are so many lately that I&nbsp;have heard. THe one I&nbsp;just read just now was on EP. &nbsp;I am looking forwardto abooklover to post the whole song so I&nbsp;can actually hear it, instead of reading it.&nbsp; I am not sure the name, but it is trully amazing.</p><br />

<p>he ain't heavy he's my brother.....the hollies</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>I am nearly 50 now and it still affects me as it makes me think of a loss I had in my early teens</p>

<p>ya theres a song from the movie veer jara. do pal...</p><br />
<p>it makes me feel like crying .. coz it matches my real life experiences</p>

<p>Lightining express. It tugs at your heart strings&nbsp;</p>

<p>"<strong>UP WHERE WE BELONG</strong> ": <strong>JOE COCKER</strong> AND JENNIFER WARNES&nbsp;We had it for our bridle&nbsp;song and it make me cry with all the happy&nbsp;emotion that it brings</p>

<p>&nbsp;my december... &nbsp;by linkin park</p>

<p>&nbsp;Last Night I Dreamt that Somebody Loved Me- The Smiths, Listening to it right now.</p>

One song that makes me cry is a ballad called "Tears in Heaven" that was written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain Eric Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell out of a 53rd-story window in his mother's friend's New York City apartment, on March 20, 1991. Last time I heard it was last Saturday (July 4th) because my mom has it on CD in her car. It makes me cry because it's a slow song and when I hear it all I think about is his son.

<p>&nbsp;The Fray - "You Found Me" and "How to Save a Life" - This morning.</p>

<p>Lightning Crashes by Live gets me pretty choked up.. </p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>The band dedicated this song to one of their friends from high school who died in a car accident in York, PA after a fleeing criminal collided with them on the road.. </p><br />
<p>Their friend donated her organs and saved multiple lives including a tenth month old baby that needed a liver.. </p><br />
<p>This song is about the beautiful,&nbsp; and sometime cruel, circle of life. </p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />

<p>right here waiting-it reminds me of someone i once cared alot about and i knew i loved you before i met you-that is a personal thing maybe if i get to know you and you want to know i will tell you</p>

<p>"You Can Let Go Now Daddy", by Crystal Schwanda. My dad left when me and my sister were two, and it makes me sad about what I missed out on as a child.</p>

<p>U2..." With OR Without You"..... I love that song!!!!</p>

<p>10 beer bottles hanging on the wall.&nbsp; Last time I was in Australia.</p>

<p>The Time Of Your Life by Green Day - It reminds me of the fun times I had with my son when he still&nbsp; enjoyed spending time with me.&nbsp; It is gone forever.&nbsp; He was in highschool and played in a band and my husband and I went to all of their show. We were their biggest fans. And we did have the time of our lives.</p><br />

<p>"The Dance" by Garth Brooks...last week</p><br />
<p>This song will keep you from fantasizing about the "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" option.</p>

<p>Butterfly kisses. I heard it a couple of weeks ago. That makes me want to cry.</p>

<p>Best I Ever Had - State of Shock</p><br />
<p>listened to it just couple minutes ago.. always makes me sad and think about a very special person..</p>

<p>Yes there is a song that has always made me cry and it always seems fitting because there are always soldiers coming home from war and this song makes me weep for their transisition back to civilian life.</p><br />
<p>It never is easy for them, no matter what they did or where they went, they have an emptiness inside that they cannot share with others who have never been deployed.</p><br />
<p>The Lyris to them are here and it was sung by England Dan (Dan Seals who passed away in March of this year)&nbsp;and John Ford Coley. This is a fitting song for every soldier returning home and it always makes me cry.</p><br />

The morning clouds are gathering around as I stand on the bridge of the<br /><br />
river<br /><br />
Years have gone since I was here and I wonder how I differ<br /><br />
Taxicabs keep rolling by and a blind man asks for change<br /><br />
And here I stand a soldier in the rain.<br /><br />
<br /><br />
Coming home was all I thought of ... seeing my family and friends<br /><br />
They say love knows no distance but the lonely never ends<br /><br />
And all along the dreams that possessed my heart never were to plain<br /><br />
And here I stand a soldier in the rain<br /><br />
<br /><br />
I remember years ago ? I had so many plans<br /><br />
And now I watch the river flow ? time has brought me here<br /><br />
With empty hands<br /><br />
<br /><br />
I remember years ago ? I had so many plans<br /><br />
And now I watch the river flow ? time has brought me here<br /><br />
With empty hands<br /><br />
<br /><br />
The morning clouds are gathering around and the streets are full of<br /><br />
reflections<br /><br />
A traffic light and the moon still bright ? people going in different<br /><br />
directions<br /><br />
I've thought about why I'm here its just too hard to explain<br /><br />
And here I stand a soldier in the rain<br />
<br />
<br />
<p>Bless our troops, albeit the ones at war now, or the thousands and thousands who have returned And also lets not forget&nbsp; the ones who never returned (MIA and POW) and those killed in Combat who are returned to their family practically daily. Bless our troops Even if you disagree with why they are there, remember they are just following orders.</p><br />
<p>Bless them, Every single one.</p>

<p>Someone to watch over me. - Broadway song.</p><br />
<p>There are many songs that make me cry from older ones to newer ones.</p><br />
<p>Wait for me - Faith Hill</p><br />
<p>Wynonna - Several of her songs.</p><br />
<p>Phil Collins -Separate Lives - When I last sang it.</p><br />
<p>I can relate to so many and I'm sentimental. Moon River is another one.</p>

<p>"My Immortal" by Evanessence. It's mine and my mom's song b/c it had just come out when I&nbsp;went to bootcamp and my mom was really REALLY upset about me being gone. Every time I&nbsp;got to hear it while I&nbsp;was in bootcamp I&nbsp;boo hoo'd. I&nbsp;heard it just a few days ago (I&nbsp;have it on my Ipod, which was on shuffle) and it still makes me mom too.</p>

<p>The song that is making me cry now is the one Michael Jackson sang for the movie "Free Willy".&nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>The Dance</strong> - Garth Brooks, been a while</p>

<p>A Soldier's Night before Christmas....</p><br />
<p>That one will make me cry each and every time.....and it was one Christmas eve that I heard it last...Seems quite approperate...Don't ya think</p>

<p>I was listening to Michael Jacksons' song "Cry" earlier online today.&nbsp; It talks about how we can all change the world if we come together with love.&nbsp; I thought it was a beautiful song.</p>

<p>&nbsp;My Immortal by Evanescense is a sad song. I haven't heard in quite a while, actually. But when I do, I remember my high school days and a friend who died then.</p>

<p>It really depends on my mood, but there are several songs that make me tear up or cry.</p><br />
<p>If I'm having to leave my boyfriend and spend a lot of time away from him, "Awake" by Josh Groban gets to me.</p><br />
<p>@&nbsp;Robyn - That's ":ast Kiss" by Pearl Jam, and actually that song has made me teary before, lol.</p><br />
<p>"Concrete Angel" makes me cry when I watch the music video.</p>

<p>Home, by Katharine McPhee.&nbsp; I last heard it a few months ago.</p>

<p>Oh god............. one song I'd probably start balling to if I listened to it, would be..*deep breath*</p><br />
<p>Kryptonite; By three doors down.</p><br />
<p>It even hurts thinking about that name.</p><br />
<p>Back in the good days of my last relationship, it was our song..... yahno....</p><br />
<p>When we were perfect together and than, well it got worse, so yah.</p><br />

<p>You and I by Michael Buble.&nbsp; It was going to be my wedding song whenever I&nbsp;got married. However the groom of my dreams became ill and passed away about two weeks ago.&nbsp; I&nbsp;had to remove the song from my Ipod. I&nbsp;know in time I will be able to listen to it, but not at this point.</p>

<p>&nbsp;Atlantic City - Counting Crowes (originally Bruce Springsteen)</p><br />
<p>Power of Two- Indigo Girls</p><br />
<p>Beautiful Boy - John Lennon</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>I am actually listening to Beautiful Boy now that I wrote that!&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>I hope everybody enjoys :)&nbsp;</p>

<p>&nbsp;Aqua - Barbie girl, makes me cry everytime they play it at a party for the 158th time, consecutively!</p>

"Surrender" by Barlow Girl - yesterday<br />
<br />
But it makes me cry because I was learning a dance to it during a very hard time in my life, so it meant a lot to me, and hearing it stabs me with memories and sadness. It's only sad to me because I associate certain feelings and memories with it, like people do with smells.<br />
<br />
Oh, but one that makes me cry because it's sad: "Fly to Jesus". When my mom was pregnant with my baby sister, and we were told she would die at birth, they played this at church and it was just so terribly sad. It made me think that my sister was going to die and I would never know her.<br />
<br />
"And with your final heartbeat <br />
Kiss the world goodbye <br />
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and <br />
Fly to Jesus <br />
Fly to Jesus <br />
Fly to Jesus and live! "

"Address in the stars" by Caitlin and Will. It is about missing a loved one who has passed on and having so many things to say, so you write letters but they will never be delivered, because there is no address where they have gone. It makes me think of my dad. I don't listen to it often, because it is way to sad. I think I listened to it a few weeks ago.

<p>The song that makes me cry is, 'A House Is Not A Home' by Luther Vandross.&nbsp; I'm in a long distance relationship and it hurts not to be near my baby.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I last heard the song yesterday when I sung it to myself.</p>

<p>'Running to Stand Still'&nbsp; By U2 from the Joshua Tree album But in perticular&nbsp;The&nbsp;LIVE versions&nbsp;from&nbsp;'ZooTV' tour. &nbsp;there's something in The sound of&nbsp;Edge's Guitar Playing that just resonates within me, somethere&nbsp;the notes just hit deep down! and strike a chord&nbsp;- THE CHORD!! tears well up everytime:-)&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>

<p>summer time by janis's funny because she sings not to cry but you can't help but feel them about to pour out</p><br />

<p>&nbsp;Turn The Radio Up by Eric Carmen- my song for the summer of my 17th year. Can't remember when I last heard it.</p><br />
<p>Evanescence-Bring me to Life- a song I heard the summer I was getting to know my husband, and dedicated it to him. last heard it about a month ago.</p><br />
<p>The National Anthem-ever since I served in the USAF. &nbsp;Don't remember when I last heard it.</p><br />
<p>Moonlight Sonata-Beethoven-last heard a couple months ago.</p><br />

<p>&nbsp; <strong>I'll be home for Christmas.&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong>I know I'll never get to go home again and it's a heartbreaker.</p>

<p>"The Rose" by Bette Midler brings me to tears.&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>I had a show booked the weekend following my mother's death and I dedicated this song to her.&nbsp; I choked up as I sang the words and closed my eyes to try and remain composed.</p><br />
<p>At the songs's end, I opened my eyes to a standing ovation and not a dry eye in the place. It was an extraordinary intimate moment that I shared with an audience of about 100 people and it was wonderful.</p><br />
<p>This was over 10 years ago and I still get misty-eyed when I hear it.</p>

<p>Don't Let Him Steal Your Heart Away&nbsp;by Phil Collins</p>

<p>yes there few . Leslie Roy - Unbeatiful a week ago</p>

<p>The song that makes me cry is by Creed,titled Arms Wide Open.I last heard it about almost a year ago.</p>

<p>Amazing Grace- (especially if played on the bagpipes)</p><br />
<p>Silent Night</p><br />
<p>several love songs by NickleBack and Gavin Rosedale and several others</p>

<p>So many songs by Michael Jackson, including "Have You Seen My Childhood?", "Why You Want To&nbsp;Trip On Me", "Tabloid Junkie", "The Lady In My Life", "Remember The Time", "Smile", and the number one song for me, "Will You Be There".</p>

<p>My Heart Will Go On makes me cry because it is such a beautiful song, I love it. I can play that song on the piano by heart</p>

Untitled by Simple Plan<br />
<br />
And right now

<p>The song that makes me cry is 7 things by miley cyrus & the last time i heard it was about a month ago when i was stupid enough after a break up to listen to it!</p><br />

<p>What's new ***** cat by Tom Jones! It's been a while though. And I wasn't crying because it made me sad, I was crying because it's painful on the ears, especially if you hear it more than once in a day!</p>

<p>Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, by Bill Withers.&nbsp;&nbsp; I heard it over the weekend (in the movie Crooklyn).&nbsp; It's just a sad song.</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p><strong>&nbsp; #1)&nbsp;&nbsp; "I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU"....but only when it's sung by Whitney Houston</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong><strong>#2)&nbsp;&nbsp; ( singing)&nbsp; "OH WHERE O WHERE...CAN MY BABY BE...THE LORD TOOK HER...AWAY FROM&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ME...SHE'S GONE TO HEAVEN, SO I'VE GOT TO BE GOOD...SO I CAN SEE MY BABY WHEN I LEEEEVE THISA WORLD..."</strong></p><br />

<p>OMG so many...</p><br />
<p>I&nbsp;think the first song that I associated with something sad was "Against all odds" by Phil Collins. I avoid listening to it but now that it's older it hardly comes on. I heard it one day and it reminded me of the day we drove off and left my father behind. I can still see him standing in the dirt road surrounded by a cloud of dust as my mother drove the old white station wagon with my brother, myself and all of our belongings away. The divorced that summer but it wasn't until a few years later that this song came along and just seemed to fit. Such is life I guess...</p><br />
<p><br /><br />
How can i just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace<br /><br />
When i stand here taking every breath with you, ooh<br /><br />
You're the only one who really knew me at all<br /><br />
<br /><br />
How can you just walk away from me,<br /><br />
When all i can do is watch you leave<br /><br />
Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears<br /><br />
You're the only one who really knew me at all<br /><br />
<br /><br />
So take a look at me now, oh there's just an empty space<br /><br />
And there's nothing left here to remind me,<br /><br />
Just the memory of your face<br /><br />
Ooh take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space<br /><br />
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what i've got to face<br /><br />
<br /><br />
I wish i could just make you turn around,<br /><br />
Turn around and see me cry<br /><br />
There's so much i need to say to you,<br /><br />
So many reasons why<br /><br />
You're the only one who really knew me at all<br /><br />
<br /><br />
So take a look at me now, well there's just an empty space<br /><br />
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face<br /><br />
Now take a look at me now, cos there's just an empty space<br /><br />
<br /><br />
But to wait for you, is all i can do and that's what i've got to face<br /><br />
Take a good look at me now, cos i'll still be standing here<br /><br />
And you coming back to me is against all odds<br /><br />
It's the chance i've gotta take<br /><br />
<br /><br />
Take a look at me now</p><br />

<p><strong>I thought these Questions were supposed to be FUN!</strong></p><br />
