Pulp- She's Dead
This one reminds me of my first love, who topped himself in Oct with nitrous and a plastic bag Hadn't seen him for about 10 years but still did, and does my head in.
and this one always makes me cry:
Forgot about this
That last one isn't an obvious tear-jerker, but wait for the acoustic bit in the middle.
and a couple other Corries numbers.
Forever young - Dylan - always gets me a bit, something to do with the kids I guess.....nice song
Smooth soul but a lovely song
And another, goodness, it slays me from the first, it's hard to explain why it feels so good to feel so sad. Also have to agree with SpookyFrank's suggestions, certainly not to be rolled out around the piano for a good old knees up.
Von (translates as Hope) - as much for the video as the song as together they encapsulate the quiet community presence you get in rural Iceland and the non showy nature of a band like Sigur Ros who toured the villages a few years ago. This is a not set up video - its just the village turning out for a concert in the village hall and showing no 'showy selfies' or any thing with the band who are just taken as ordinary people who do music well. There are a couple of bits in it - the little child at the stage and the older Greenlandic couple - that are a bit tear jerkish when set against the music which is just stunning and you also see the way the band take cues from each other.
I was working at home the other day and thought it would be safe to listen to Bold As Love by Jimi Hendrix, nearly a decade after my brother's funeral. Nope.
Don't think I've ever made it all the way through this, either singing along or just listening, without tears.
I know it's not a song, but it sets me off every time.
I'll hardly ever cry due to a song, only because a song reminds me of some other thing in the past.
Has anyone every cried the first time they heard a song?
This too makes me cry...
And this ....
It makes me bawl my eyes out.. every single time I hear it.
A wonderful scene.
It takes only the first few bars to get me. My Aunt Dorothy used to sing this with 100% belief, my Uncle Owen loved it, and my Aunt Lil loved and believed in the words of this song. All gone now. I miss them, especially Aunt Lil who brought me up for a few years and loved me more than anything. I'm crying now.
I think this may have done - back in the day - just an excuse to post a one hit wonder
When I was young and soft and hippified and a modern languages student, it seemed we were always drifting in and out of peoples' lives.
Late Summers or early Autumns, we would be packing our rucksacks and heading off to France or Spain or Portugal and leaving lovers behind.
So this song became very poignant and it still touches me even now...
Gets to me every time.
Sometimes it snows in April '
Here is an alternative interpretation of the complete song cycle - utterly beautiful music.
