Me and my friends were listening to music and my friend played this one song that he said made him teary every time he listens to it, so we started telling each other what songs effect us in an emotional way. The song that makes me teary every time I listen to it is Wild Horses by The Rolling Stones. So what's you song that makes you feel teary and sad?

Veronica written by Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney, performed by Elvis Costello. It was inspired by Elvis's grandmother who had Alzheimers and really mirrored what's going on with my own grandmother in a way. I cry everytime also because it's a very beautiful song and his voice compliments it so well. And Don't Fear the Reaper (I guess that's what it's called) by the Blue Oyster Cult. That song came on when I read of my favorite character's death in Deathly Hallows and I think it really suits him.

Candle in the Wind sung by Elton John. Everytime I hear it, it reminds me of Princess Diana and other family members I lost around the same time.

"Your candle burned out long before
your legend ever did"

is the line that is the saddest IMO.

Edit: also "Starry, starry night" by Don McLean. Its one of the saddest songs, its about Vincent Van Gogh. It's about Gogh's suffering through out his lifetime and his death.

The song "Hurt" by Christina Aguilera always gets me down, Such a powerful message within that song and video... Also "When You're Gone" by Avril Lavigne, Not really the song itself but along side the music video it always puts me in tears.

Brighter Discontent by The Submarines. But there are probably 100s of songs I know of that make me sad.

There's more than one, but "Trouble," by Cat Stevens sends a shiver up my spine just thinking about it.

2Pac - Changes
Evanescence - My Immortal

Those two pretty much make me cry, especially if I'm already feeling down.

The Macarena. The fact that a song that bad could become a hit around the world makes me break down in tears and lose all hope for humankind.

I don't know any that make me cry, except Bright Eyes that was on the film 'Water Ship Down' (what a sad film for kids to watch lol) I know LOADS of depressing songs.

That one I keep hearing on the radio, I think 'The Fray' sing it, I can't stand it, it's so depressing!

And that one by Papa Roach that was really popular with the depressed teenagers at the time, I hate that one, it's such a bad message to young people.

Apologize by OneRepublic (feat Timbaland). The song without Timbaland is actually more sad though.

When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne. Though I don't like her, but everytime when I hear it, it makes me cry.
And Suteki Da Ne by ?

Chocolate

And Suteki Da Ne by ?
Nobuo Uematsu.

For me it's a bit difficult to cry when listening to music [I cry easily in films though lol], but I think the song that makes me closest to sad is either "Forgiven" by Within Temptation or "Hello" by Evanescence.

2wrV870TiF0
Eh? :D
I love the film and especially the book. ^_^

But nah, songs don't really make me sad if something emotional hasn't happened during the moment I hear them.. That's why most of the songs that affect me somehow are from films(and some games). :p

No song has ever made me cry, I don't think at least. Well, once when I was already depressed I turned on When You're Gone-Avril Lavigne and I started crying, because I missed My Best Friend. :(

Angelus
04-09-07, 16:11
Another one is The Used - I Caught Fire (In Your Eyes)

Reminds me of my best friend.

this one, I watched it one evening with my nieces who were spending the night many years ago. They looked at me and said, "are you crying?". My wife just gave me a hug and said no, he's got a cold...;)
