I'm totally stealing this thread from ABW, but it was so cool that I couldn't help myself.

What songs always make you cry when you hear them?

I still cry when I hear Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics. I read that he wrote that after his dad died. The line about not being there when his dad passed away and hearing him in his newborn's tears. Always gets me going.

Wow....I could make a HUGE list. I am an emotional sap. I am also a very musical person. So songs and emotion together gets me going....I will have to think. I listen to ALOT of Christian music and some of those get me going too. I think the one song is called "Walking Her Home". About a man on a date and he was walking her home. Then towards the end of the song, she is dying and he lays next to her and then it goes to the chorus again - He was Walking her home (meaning Heaven). I think of my Grandma and Grandpa on that song. Gets me teary every time.

A lot of songs make me cry but for different reasons. My top songs would be:

Because of you by Kelly Clarkson
Concrete Angel (Martina McBride)
Alyssa Lies (Jason Michael Carroll) This song makes me sob.
In My Daughter's Eyes (Martina McBride)
American Pie and Vincent (Don McLean)

I guess songs really get to me. :)

Mine is a Mark Schultz song too Angela.

It's called "He's My Son". As a mom of two special needs boys....it gets me every time! :cry:

No video, but here's the lyrics....

He's My Son

I'm down on my knees again tonight
I'm hoping this prayer will turn out right
See there is a boy that needs Your help
I've done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired
I'm sure You can understand
Each night as he sleeps
She goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry
As the tears fill her eyes

CHORUS:
Can You hear me?
Am I getting through tonight?
Can You see him?
Can You make him feel all right?
If You can hear me
Let me take his place somehow
See, he's not just anyone
He's my son

Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he'd like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is You
Let him grow old
Live life without this fear
What would I be
Living without him here
He's so tired and he's scared
Let him know that You're there

CHORUS

Can You hear me?
Can You see him?
Please don't leave him
He's my son

I'm not an emotional person, but one that always makes me a bit teary eyed is Blessed by Elton John.

Hmm..I don't cry at many songs but some of my favorites get me all choked up :)

What a Wonderful World.........Louie Armstrong (always reminds me that I have a lot to be thankful for and life is beautiful)

That's the Good Stuff.....Kenney Chesney (reminds me of what is important in life)

Remember When........Alan Jackson (that song just reminds me so much of marriage and love, the ups and the downs, I love it)

All three of those stop me in my tracks no matter what I am doing when they come on :love:

I am sappy, nearly everything makes me cry. I like
Concrete angel
In my daughter's eyes
Allyssa lies
Natural woman - Murphy Brown sang it to her baby (I know Bryan, you are way to young, lol) and so it makes me think of my babies
I want to be just like You (because he wants to be just like me)
How can I (live without you)-Tricia Yearwood
Landslide (Fleetwood Mac)
AND, about a jillion more songs that makes me think of my girls, my parents, my happy times, my sad times, my anything time.

That's my Mom's favorite song too.

For me it's

"the cowboy rides away" (I think that's the title) and the other "Me and Emily." Both country songs. The first was played at a friends funeral when I was a freshman ... this was my first real clue that all of us weren't immortal (you know teenagers) and the second reminds me of my daughter and I and is a slightly modified story of something we've gone through.

Beauty and The Beast

When my dd5 was a baby, she :heart: loved this movie. Whenever they came to the part of the movie where they are dancing to this song, my husband would scoop her up and dance with her around the living room. I swear they danced to this song 100 times over the years. Then one day my husband told me he wanted this to be the song they play at her wedding for the father/daughter song. :heart: Which will be perfect because she will be having a Disney Wedding. :heart:

That's a good one. The one that gets me the most is The Baby by Blake Sheldon. It perfectly describes my relationship with my mother.

I'm a big crier, so there are way more than this, but here are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Wind Beneath My Wings
I Will Remember You -- Sarah Maclachlan
Tears in Heaven -- Eric Clapton
and this one really gets me:
Love, Me -- Collin Raye

I read a note my Grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me
He said, "Boy, you might not understand, but a long, long time ago,
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none, but I love your Grandma so.

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
I found this letter, and this is what it said :

"If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I'll be loving you
Love, Me."

I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away
In the doorway of the church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray
I know I've never seen him cry in all my fifteen years
But as he said these words to her, his eyes fill up with tears

"If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be

But I'm not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again

I'll be loving you
Love, Me."

Alyssa Lies (Jason Michael Carroll) This song makes me sob.

This is on the top of my list at the moment! That song gets to me every time...and yet I love it! I am strange but a lot of songs with "stories" like this get to me and yet they are some of my favorites. :confused:

Oh, yeah, and now that I have a child, I swear all the songs singing about their children can get to me in less than a second. "Let Them Be Little" by Billy Dean used to really get to me. "Jesus Take the Wheel" got to me when it first came out because it has a verse about the baby being okay in the back seat after the mom lost control of the car. My dd was just an infant when that came out so it touched me. There is one that is callled "I Loved Her First" talking about a dad about to give his little girl away to be married and I can't help but get teary envisioning my dh giving our dd away. Okay, I'd better stop. Just typing about it makes me teary. I'm such a sap!

P.S. Did you notice that most of the songs that get to me are country songs? I listen to all kinds of music but those have the "stories" that usually get to me the most.

I can't think of any that make me cry but dh also cries to the Mark Schultz song about his son. Mark Schultz was the singer at Men's Round Up last year. We have been through a lot of scary health stuff with our son and it really affected him.

That one is a tear jerker.....:rotfl:

Also the patriotic songs get to me - I just puff up with pride about being an American sometimes and I tear up....Toby Keith has some good ones. Also Alan Jackson.

It's funny you mention that. We went to a baseball game Saturday night and I started to tear up when they sang the Star Spangled Banner. It never occurred to me until that moment that I ALWAYS start to cry when I hear the Star Spangled Banner!

Tricia, I was just going to post that! Every single sporting event I go to I end up bawling by the end of the National Anthem. I can't help it. But by the time I get to "Rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air" part, tears are streaming down my face.:rotfl:

About a month after 9/11, DH and I were in Baltimore and decided to go to Fort McHenry which is the birthplace of our National Anthem. There is a very nice video presentation in the visitors center about the history of the fort and at the end of the video they play the National Anthem. Well, there were about 50 people watching that video with me, and spontaneously we all stood up and sang that song at the top of our lungs and by the end I don't think there was a dry eye in the room. It was really quite moving.
