Okay, here's a good question:

What is the last song to move you to tears?

Hmm I dont think a song, or movie ever made me cry. Real life handles that, but I think they do trigger those memories that can make you sad. Music itself can make you sad, so can a singers voice.

But..... There was a song on Springsteen's The Rising that really got me.

I was listening to thits when my Mom said stop what you're doing Dad is in icu now. He never made it out . so that song will forever be etched in my brain for that.

This will choke you up

Well I don't think you got around disrespecting the situation described. What a weird response.

I think we were all asked the question, and there's a reason why I listen to Bruce's music and moved by it. And it happened to be true.

Did you start early tonight? Weirdo.

I truly didnt mean any offense. Was just kidding. Jest about Springsteen only.
Since it is an issue, I have no desire to start up over that kind of topic.
Removed it.

For me, there's a ton, but I will let our just announced Just Plain Folks Song Of The Year stand in. Here's Gretchen Peters winning song "Idlewild" which she told me is one of the most important songs she ever wrote for herself. You can put yourself in the backseat of that car as your young world crashes down around you.

I came up with a list after thinking a bit. I noticed most songs I find sad are on the piano I don't know why. not cry but close. although these songs will lose their overwhelming power after a thousand listens or so.

Neil Young "a man needs a maid"
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bORW_YEmHwY

Gary Jules "Mad World"
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0Az2BvTcshg



Tom Petty "Wake up Time"
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-AtcYvOz2vc

Pete Townshend "Slit Skirts". Dont sound like a sad song with that title right?
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NuTXSnez3WM

I have an odd one that came from Rush called Time Stands Still
Seemed to sound like it came straight from my head.
But I like songs that make me look inwards, not as much to cry over.

I think she's among the most underrated songwriters in the business. She's had hits and success, but she wrote some amazing songs on her winning Female Singer Song. Take a look above this thread at the winner list and watch Five Minutes, the Americana winner. Videos for ALL the winning song but one are posted as well as many more winners as you scroll down.

There's a LOT of talent in our org. folks. I know many don't post here but nearly all of them have played at our events in the past, some going back 25+ years!

"I'M MOVING ON" written by D.Vincent Williams, and Phillip White. A very interesting song.

The one that the writers didn't want to write, the publishers were not interested in publishing, the band didn't want to record, the label didn't want to release, radio was not interested in playing. But through a variety of very strange events, turned into an award winning, multiple platinum selling song. A very interesting case of "you just never know."

Nigel havent seen you in a while.... When I said I dont think a song made me cry, I have to say no, many have put me in a crying mood, but one that actually made me cry, but I dont think thats what they are meant to do.

Just being honest, many songs have moved me, thats a different story. I dont think ive cried much in any situation, a few times getting hit with a baseball as a kid. When my folks died, especially how my Mom went, she went through alot last few days, My eyes were water fountains.

Songs that remind you of a time where you cried, I think are more prevalent.

A good point that one man's poison is another man's meat. The public is the final judge.

Hi, it wasn't a criticism, I was basically saying that it's an illustration of how we all perceive art forms differently. For me, feeling emotion is a big part of music experience. That's not to say I cry every time I hear a sad song, that would be ridiculous. There's so much more that goes into the mix (no pun intended) to move me, for example a relatively innocuous song could make me well up because it reminds me of someone that is no longer with us.

I know you werent being critical, to me what music does is trigger your own memories, i may not cry, but it reminds me of a time when I did cry, and gives the same feeling. I dont think it's real enough to make me cry, your brain knows it's a record....

Most of my favorites were writers who wrote a narrative, gave me some insights, gave me some optimism, helped me cope with the day ins and outs. But I guess any music can do that.

There are balad singer songwriters who will make you lose your man card... lol if just for a moment.

Christopher Cross was highly emotional, and his song think of laura always made me sad, in an uplifting way, but not cry...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02-CvtmRz6M

Then there's Five for Fighting.... one guy actually named John Ondrasik has written some real... near tear jerkers

I think its the emotion of the vocals, but these two are great songs to test if youll cry in a song or not lol

Yeah that song knocked me out when I first heard it. A great lyric and just a great singer/songwriter tune.

Hi, Brian.
I am sure you don't know the song and it's in a language you don't understand..:-) It is by the Late Philly Lutaaya, one of Uganda's most prolific recording artists. He sang mostly in his native language - Luganda. The song is titled "Nkooye Okwegomba" (I am tired of envying others). In the song, he sings about the trials and struggles of musicians, while being shunned and looked down upon by the rest of society (who at the time, in Uganda, thought very little of a career in music). The song was released in 1987, two years before he died. Have a listen, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RovXDyqGfig

Thank you for sharing that song, Raymond. I love this kind of music, although I have not listened to anything specifically from Uganda. Many years ago, I had a number of friends from Rwanda and the Congo who took me to clubs where similar music was played. A big favorite was Mbila Bel. I still have one of her albums and play it every so often. She sang in French as well as her local language. This is one of my favorites of hers:

This is also evidence that you don't need anything fancy to make a fun video. When I watch this, I want to hang out with these folks smile

Hi Raymond, it's Gavin, not Brian - although he may be into this music too for all I know smile. Thanks for the links. Here's another of my favorite Mbila Bel songs, Keyna.

These songs all tend to go on for so long because nobody wants to stop dancing. I like the way that they insert little variations to keep it interesting.

Hi, Gavin.
Thanks for sharing and for reminding me about "Keyna"...:-) Lovely song from Mbilia. Yes, rhumba vibes are never too long for people who love to dance and plenty of dance enthusiasts, here in Africa. A few songs I know, especially by TPOK Jazz, go up to 15 minutes!...:-)
