Songs That Make You Cry Redux

    We used to have this thread, but it's evidently been deleted (that seems to becoming a common trend around here anymore).

    Anyshoe, I don't believe I ever posted in the original thread, because there's just really not a song out there that's ever really made me cry before . . . or so I thought. Listening to game music on YouTube, I was suddenly reminded of this:

    Lemme tell ya, whenever I would play LOZ as a little kid, I would have to push the start button immediately after the start screen came up, because if I didn't, as soon as I heard those notes change at 0:11, and saw that opening narrative start scrolling, I'd bawl like a baby.

    Looking back on it now, I'm laughing inside. Considering this really isn't even too different from the overworld music, perhaps just played at a slower tempo is all . . . but man, oh man, at four and five years old, that would kill me everytime.

    Why did the original thread get deleted? Just wondering.

    I don't know. Maybe the same reason why the old Survey thread got deleted?

    Anyway, I always tear up whenever I hear this song. There is just something about Bette Midler's performance of this that makes it so darn beautiful. :cry:

    Sometimes long/huge threads have to be deleted due to either spammers posting plus ensueing related posts or people ask to have their posts deleted, that and it just becomes a mess trying to sort out which posts should be deleted. So the easier solution is to chuck the whole thing and have a new thread start up to take the original's place.

    That said... Honest Lullaby from the Joan Baez TMS episode always gets to me. That, and the song "Cat's In The Cradle".

    Interesting thing is that some forums I'm on are a lot stricter - you set up another thread after it's been deleted and you might be in trouble. :p You guys are cool like that. :)

    Anyways, here's a couple hair metal songs that always get me:

    Who keeps asking their posts to be deleted anyway? I mean, I can kind of understand where you're coming from from a moderating standpoint and that it would be easier just to delete the threads altogether, but in a sense, it's kind of not fair for everybody else who was active in the thread.

    I can't listen to this song without getting all choked up. R.I.P. Michael Jackson, The King of Pop.

    The 2000 version of What Is Friend from Sesame Street. But in a good way though.

    "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You." (That was honestly my song when my cat Buddy died on 4/23/14).

    "How Could This Happen to Me" by Simple Plan (I can't describe how many times I've listened to this song when I'm having a crummy day/week).

    "It's Time for Saying Goodbye" (this song is why I partially didn't watch "The Muppets Take Manhatten" alot as a kid).

    "Who Will I Kill" from 624 - Samson vs the Vampire Women of Mst3k. You know a song/show is good when you can sympathize with a mad scientist like Dr. Forrester.

    "When She Loved Me" from Toy Story 2. Growing up sucks. :smirk:

    "I've Got Nothing" by Dairus Rucker. The music video for this song is really sad.

    "Nocturne's Wind" aka Shii's song. I saw the latter version on fetchfido.com when I was 11 in 2004. The visuals with the singing cat made it sad....

    To name some.

    This Little Big Town song right here. Something about it is just beautiful and heartwrenching:

    This song is already sad enough in of itself but affects me too because I had this friend who was practically a sister to me years ago. She loved this song and when her dad died at a very young age, she played this song at his funeral:

    It's always been a song that's made me cry but ever since his passing, the association with the funeral has only made it worse. I even considered using it in a video a while back but I couldn't get through the video without crying so I had to scrap the idea all together. Plus with my videos being mostly comedy and all, I felt like I was making fun of the song in a way which additionally made me end the production of that video.

    Most of the songs in the Land Before Time sequels were pretty meh like the sequels themselves, but there are two that I admit that got me tearing up are "Grandma's Lullaby" (from the 4th installment) and "Always There" (from the 5th). Both feel like something that could have been in the 1st film had Don Bluth included songs, and in the case of "Always There", Littlefoot's verse is especially lovely.
