Yay for new threads!

What's a song that's made you cry? Whether it's made you cry in the past, or it makes you cry now.


This is really the only example I can think of that's made me cry. I'm not sure why. I remember listening to it for the first time and just crying. For about fifteen or so listens, every time it got to (about) the 2:26 mark, it made me start to cry.

The only one I can think of, even today I can't seem to finish listening to, is Pantera's Cemetary Gates. Ever since Dimebad Darrel was shot and killed on stage, don't know why but the way it sounds like - I have to stop listening to it, my eyes will start filling up with tears.

Kiss Me Sunlights (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPE8EesftLg)

This one gets me every time. I lost a really close friend that I had a huge crush on when I was a freshman and college and this song makes me think of her ;-;

The only song that really makes me cry nowadays is Pickup Truck by Kings of Leon. Reminds me of a relationship I had with someone and reminds me of the mistakes I made during it, and he always said that song was how he felt about us. It's not a particularly sad song, but with the backstory, that's what gets me. Just reminds me of old times. I have it on my phone, but never listen to it. I used to never skip it because it made me happy. It only brings me sadness now.

Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd makes me think about my mom.

The Riddle by Five for Fighting makes me think about my dad.

This song still reminds me of a guy I met long time ago. And the situation was so heart-wrenching so I don't really feel good when I listen to this song. It still makes me feel sad. Doesn't help that it's a really beautiful Swedish song too ^^

There's been a few songs that made me cry for a little while after I first heard them, mostly due to them being emotionally charged and making me nostalgic and all that...not so much anymore though, unless I'm being extremely nostalgic whenever I listen to them.

There is still one song that will make me cry regardless, however...


That song, that exact video. Didn't even matter that I didn't understand the language at all - I bawled when I was first shown this (and looking up translations just made it worse). It's the one song that will still make me cry every time I listen to it. Or sometimes even think it.

There are two songs that did that to me (i was really depressed and it released my emotions really hard) and those are:

Anna Yvette - ScarS
OverHertz - Into The Embers

Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole


There are a lot of memories and feelings that this song brings up. And it's a beautiful song. It doesn't help my eyes stay dry to know that he died before his time. It's one of those things that make you think about what you've lost and what you have and the past and the future and yeah. Just plucks at my heartstrings.

I listened to it on a whim and after 30 seconds, tears started to fill my eyes...
I cannot really explain why.

Last Kiss by Pearl Jam

Oh wow.. I too have cried to this. ;( Haha.

A couple would be;
Otherside - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stay Together for the Kids - Blink 182
Scar Tissue - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Wake me up when September Ends - Green Day
Gone Away - The Offspring
Adams Song - Blink 182
With Me -Sum 41

There is more, but these are the ones I listened to the most. Music has really helped me get through some tough events in my life.

I don't even know why but this song always used to get to me haha. It's one of those songs that you can really hear his passion and sadness in it, combined with the story of the lyrics... it's just touching I guess. It's a song I've always adored due to the pretty guitar and his spectacular voice, but it's always meant a lot to me for reasons that I just can't work out haha.

Nightwish- Angels Fall First.

No URLs before 15 psts :| It's here: /watch?v=n6TYwXhJpLY

Every time I hear it I cry like a little kid. Its text isn't really complicated, but very moving.
Song about losing a close person. Very sad and personal thing Lines
"Not relieved by thougts of Shangri-La
Nor enlightened by lessons of Christ"
show that any faith (I mean religion), neighter live conception can't comfort in that moment... oh Lord, why angels fall first?

Everything about "The I Love You Song" from The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is pretty much designed to make me cry. The melody, the harmonies, the sheer emotional heft, the lyrics... everything. It's the only song that can do this in me, but it's a doozy in that regard.

So far, there is only one song I am aware of that has gotten me somewhat teary-eyed.

The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize?? (http://luxurywafers.com/mp3s/TheFlamingLips_DoYouRealize.mp3)

The Beatles - She's Leaving Home

Now this is a sad song. If the name isn't obvious enough, this song is about a girl who leaves her home. If that in itself isn't sad enough, it's really the parents' reactions that gets me every time.
The song itself sounds really sad and is a song that makes me think about my future children running away :(

Usually, only songs about a sad death or that I associate with something really sad make me cry. Shoot, there's a whole lot more, but this is all I got right now.
Dirty Night Clowns by Chris Garneau
If I Die Young by The Band Perry
Bleeding Out by Imagine Dragons
Violet Prince by ...uh, I don't know. It's in the Homestuck soundtracks.
Pain by Hollywood Undead

"The Kill" by 30 Seconds to Mars. For some reason, listening to this song just bring tears to my eyes. The lyrics are quite depressing, but it's not so much about them. Maybe it's the instruments, or maybe it's their voice... I really don't know, to be honest. xD" "Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M is also a sad song, along with "Salt in the Wound" by Delta Spirit. These two songs make me very emotional every time I listen to them, because they remind me of all the things that I've been through over the years.

A lot of songs make me cry. But there's one song that holds a special place to my heart. It's called This Song Saved My Life by Simple Plan. It was written to their fans because of the bonds we share with each of the members and expresses how we feel towards them. I really love this song and every time I hear it, I want to cry because it really speaks to my heart since this band has literally just... always been there for me since I was sixteen.
