Songs that make you cry

Post by quizbowl » September 14th, 2010, 3:56 pm

Does anyone have a song that after just hearing the opening, you fall to tears?

Bad by U2. It's one of my favorites, but also makes me feel tears coming on.
Also, Men of Honor by Randy Edelmen.

The End by The Beatles always makes me cry. Also, for some strange reason, certain christmas songs. I guess it makes me get sentimental about my early childhood.

That one Christmas song about the kid who wants to buy shoes for his mother makes me cry every time.

I've never cried about a song until this summer -.-'

The End of the Tour- TMBG (in public)
Forever Young- Alphaville (while sitting in front of my computer and the song comes on my ipod)

My sister's dance recital had that one- I could barely brush the tears away.

Seize the Day by Avenged Sevenfold sometimes makes me well up, if I really think about it when I listen.
Cancer by My Chemical Romance also makes me cry. Like, serious crying...because it brings back memories of a kid I knew who died of cancer. :(
Some other emo songs also makes me cry :|

When I read your post, I had to think of how lucky I am to have never known a friend who died. A friend of mine almost choked once, and he survived because his mother reached down his throat to remove the blockage.
