Written By: Marty McFly on 11/05/08 at 4:28 pm

Sometimes it's the lyrics but more often it's the sound that just gives off a sad feeling to be (not necesarilly in a bad way, there's some romantic songs that are kinda tear inducing too). Also, there's times where if I really "get into" the song I can be saddened by the emotions, but if I'm just kinda casually listening to it it's still catchy.

Let's see:

Suddenly - Billy Ocean
How am I Supposed to Live Without You - Michael Bolton
Do What You Do - Jermaine Jackson
MOST Peter Paul and Mary songs (I do like them, but the ballads can be maudlin)
Somewhere Out there - Linda Rondstadt & James Ingram
Another Day in Paradise - Phil Collins
Love of a Lifetime - Firehouse (yeah, they were one of the late hair metal bands from 1990 but this is actually a touching love song you can take kinda seriously) ;)
I Don't Have the Heart - James Ingram
Hero - Enrique Iglaschious
Didn't We Almost Have it all - Whitney Houston

LOL hey, that's my favorite Journey song. ;)  My mom bought their Greatest Hits tape in '93 or 94 and that's one of the songs I remember liking the most. I like the easygoing synthpop sound (I guess it's middle tempo and noit quite a ballad), but I guess if you listen to the words and can relate to it, I can see how it would seem depressing. When I was a kid I only liked songs for how they sounded lol.

Hope things get better for you though. I do know how it feels to be able to personally relate to songs in a different way (which I didn't have until I was at least like 14 or 15).

I picked "Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight" for my own list, but "She's Leaving Home" qualifies as well.  I kept my list to one selection per artist for brevity's sake.

"She's Leaving Home" is interesting for the time (1960s) because it takes the parent's point of view; when the boomer kids were rebelling and running off, the parents often wondered "What did we do that was wrong?" and "We sacrificed all of our lives..." etc.

Wow I never thought of it that way, but I think you're right. It's even more unusual since in 1967 rock music was still too new to be the "parents' music" at all (it only started a little over ten years ago then), so it was on an album that basically just kids and younger people would've heard, but from the parents' perspective.

I'm not really a song crier, but I have a few.  :(

Gone Too Soon--Michael Jackson. I skip this track all the time because it makes me think of my mother, and how much I miss her.  :(

Purple Rain--Prince. Only if the song is performed live at a concert will I mist up. The version in the movie doesn't move me at all. LOL.

And don't laugh, okay,

Word Up--Cameo. It's not a sad song, I know that, but it was my mom's favorite dance tune and I mist up everytime I hear it.  :)

No laughs at all about the Cameo thing; I think it's a nice way to remember your Mom having fun.  :)  There are certain songs by Prince and Lisa Lisa that really remind me of my friend Gerard who was killed.  I laugh and cry at the same time listening to those....

I did a little digging on Wikipedia:

"San Francisco" was #1 in the UK and #4 in the US in 1967. 

In 1950 "(If I Knew You Were Comin') I'd've Baked A Cake" was #1 in the US for best sellers in stores, which is the chart pop historians prefer (above radio and jukebox play) prior to the coming of the Hot 100 in 1958. 

However, character for character, neither title is longer than "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song."

It did among New Wave kidz.  I have "Never Never/Stop Start" on a mix CD somewhere.  I used to have the 12," but did away with all my vinyl in the early '00s.

Oh, I love the Undertones!

"A Good Heart" was a sentimental song I loved in my youth.  I still like it today, though some of its magic has evaporated over the years.  It was written by Maria McKee of the pop-country group "Lone Justice," which was great, surprising they didn't have more staying power.

Ok, I'm sure this is going to make a few people laugh but I always get kind of choked up whenever I hear "There's Always Tomorrow" from Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.

Empty Garden( Hey Hey Johnny) the song Elton John wrote in tribute of John Lennon.



WOW!  What are the odds of that!?  I can't listen to that song if anyone is around! I love,love,love that song.  I can't believe anyone else would say that one! Another one of Elton's is Sorry Seems To be The Hardest Word.  I can't even get through that song without having to turn it off!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One ~ U2  That song gets me every time too.  It's just so emotional and the songwriting there is brilliant.  Probably in my top 5 favorites songs ever.  l LOVE U2!


Let It Be ~ John, Paul, George and Ringo    I remember seeing the documentary and feeling so sorry for them, because their friendship was gone, but they still had so much to say and didn't know how to say it, so they lashed out at each other. It was sad to see something so good turn so bad before your eyes.  When I hear the song I can always see how sad George was as he was playing it. He seemed like he was almost in tears.

Lots of Beatles songs do that to me, really.  The last part of Abbey Road:  Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, the End

The White Album's  While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Julia, Goodnight

The Christmas song that always makes me cry is John's Happy Xmas, War Is Over (even with Yoko's warbling!) It's just not Christmas to me if I haven't used a box of kleenex hearing that one at least once.

Tough to seriously say, but I've teared up to 'Nothing Compares 2 U', the Sinead O'Conner version.

Pearl Jam's cover of the Who's 'Love Reign O'er Me' gets me sometimes.

'Starry Starry Night (Vincent)' also gets me, I forget who makes it, but I think it's Bob Dylan. Idk though.

'I'll be Missin you', that tribute song to Notorious B.I.G. is by Faith Evans and P. Diddy, I think, and I cried once at that, just because of the sadness of it, and I wasn't even really a huge B.I.G. fan, either.

When I was 15 in 1995, both "Let Her Cry" by Hootie and the Blowfish and "Blue" by the Jayhawks made me cry.

Also, when I was 11, I cried when I heard them sing "Time in a Bottle" on "The Muppet Show."

And when I was 13, I remember that "Teach Your Children" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young made me cry.

(Boy, that's really embarrassing. I don't think there's any place I could admit that, other than on the web  ;D)
