A far friend of mine wrote a song 'bout an unreachable love.
:'( how recognizable...
Impossible Dream-Man of La Mancha
When I Grow To Old To Dream
Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life-Monty Python
Never Walk Alone
Music of the Night-Phantom of the Opera
"Asleep in the Light" by Keith Green (best witnessing song I've ever heard- "Jesus came to your door- you've left Him out on the street"...)
"Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle
"Thank You" by Ray Boltz
"For Annie" by Petra
and sometimes "Honestly" by Stryper
"I Wish We'd All Been Ready" by Larry Norman
and definitely "The Prodigal Son Suite" by Keith Green
(of course, I cry just reading Luke 15 in the Bible)
(I guess I could say sometimes on all of these because it kinda depends on how I'm feeling at times. But those all definitely tug at my heartstrings.)
"Deathbed" by Relient K- (such an incredible, powerful song- what a great tribute to the change Jesus Christ makes in a person's life- "Jesus, please forgive me of my crimes. Sanctify this withered heart of mine. Stay with me until my life is through. And on that day, please take me home with You...."
And I love the last lines (with Jon Foreman of Switchfoot singing- that was a great touch!) Jesus speaking- "I am the Way- Follow Me and take My hand. And I am the Truth- embrace Me and you'll understand. And I am the Life- and through Me you'll live again. For I am Love. I am Love. I AM Love.")
And particularly after his death,
"Elijah" by Rich Mullins
But because of 1 Corinthians 15:20-22, I can cry with hope, knowing that because Jesus died and rose, He will also raise me up because of my faith in Him. And those who have died in Christ will live again for eternity in Heaven.
Beautiful by Christina Aguilera
Post-Mortem Bar by Zane Campbell
Days Like This-Van Morrison
"Goodbye My Lover" - James Blunt
"Cowgirls Don't Cry" - Brooks & Dunn
"Over the Rainbow" - Eva Cassidy version
"Tears in Heaven" - Eric Clapton
There are others, but these are the ones I can think of right now.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas ~ Judy Garland
Faded Love ~ Pasty Cline
You and Me Against The World ~ Helen Reddy
Time After Time ~ Cyndi Lauper
Lost in Your Eyes ~ Debbie Gibson <3
He Aloha Mele and Pua Olena, both from the Tia Carrere album Hawaiiana. At least, I cried the first time I heard them, but the cry was needed at the time.
Cal Smith - Country Bumpkin
Sheena Easton - Morning Train (I got laughed at for this one...)
Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven
Grace - Irish standard
I'm sure there are other songs that've made me cry before; I'll post them when I think of them. As for songs that've touched me to varying degrees:
The Peace Carol and When the River Meets the Sea from A Christmas Together
Alice Keep Dreamin'
John Denver - Eclipse, (and this was before I really listened to the lyrics!)
My Funny Friend and Me (Never saw the Emperor's New Groove.)
Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, & Sting - All For Love
Rod Stewart - Broken Arrow
Ma Belle Evangeline from the Princess and the Frog
Rod Stewart - Motown, (because it reminds me of where I grew up)
I Don't Understand Him from Fraggle Rock, (especially since I had a pretty big argument with my mom on the day I first heard it)
"Why" by Annie Lennox
"Wintersong" by Sarah MacLachlan
"Yes, We Have No Bananas"
Why is it so sad? Because...didn't you hear? They have no bananas! They have no bananas today!
Okay, so I stole that line from Homer Simpson (from the episode where Bart falls in love with Reverend Lovejoy's daughter), but it was too darn funny that I had to use it here.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas - The pretenders
Streets of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen
There have been several songs that made me cry:
-Flying Dreams from The Secret of NIMH
-Tomorrow is Another Day and Someone's Waiting for You from The Rescuers
-When Somebody Loved Me- Toy Story 2
-Just One Person-of course by The Muppets
-Valentine- Martina McBride
Now My Feet Wont Touch the Ground - Colplay
It's a Motherf*cker - The Eels
The End of the Innocence - Don Henley
Fields of Gold - Sting
One Step Closer - U2
I Can't Love You Back - Easton Corbin... story of my life
This is the song I failed to mention for the first time, but another song that makes me cry almost every time I hear it is My Mother from The Chipmunk Adventure. I know that's an odd choice, but I can't help but cry during this song. When I hear the song, I always think of my mom and not knowing what I'd do without her.
Another one was If We Hold On Together from The Land Before Time, the first movie in the series.
"Pieces" by RED, because it was the song I was listening to when I found out one of my Great Uncles passed away.
"Goodbye May Seem Forever" from The Fox and the Hound.
"Someday" by Celtic Women (really, any version will fit here).
"For Good" from Wicked!
And finally, the big one...
"SAGITTA LUMINIS" from the Puella Magi Madoka Magica soundtrack. FULL VERSION. The one song that can make me tear up, no matter what mood I'm in. So beautiful, I'd LOVE to see this played live by a full orchestra. LOVE. So beautiful!
Yeah. Anime has the most emotionally manipulative background music there is when it comes to mood music. Basically any depressing minor key underscore, usually of the upbeat theme song, where one of the characters dies, and all the heroes are morning over them. Especially when the hero tearfully swears vengeance on the villain. That stuff gets to me. I teared the heck up when they played "See you again, Hero" during the 7 Devils Saga from Kinnikuman, where Kinnikuman was waiting for his friends (mostly dead) to come back. Seriously, I really like anime, but even the upbeat shows are depressing. And the depressing ones (like Madoka Magica) are soul crushing.
"Robin's Song" (from Tom and Jerry: The Movie (the only thing I actually liked about that movie was that song. I cry every time I hear it))
"My Little Girl" by Tim McGraw (Makes me bawl like a baby every time my dad plays that song. It was even our father/daughter dance at my Sweet 16)
"Happy/Sad" (from The Addams Family musical) (The best time I heard that song was when I saw Roger Rees as Gomez. (*It was my second time seeing the show and it was two months or so before Brooke Shields joined the cast) I swear, I could not stop crying even after the last note was played.)
"Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" (from The Phantom of The Opera) (Whenever I sing this song, I always end up crying.)
"A Little Fall Of Rain" (from Les Miserables) (Probably one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard. Can't wait to see how it'll look in the movie version
SPOILER: Why Eponine!?!!? Why did you have to die!?!?! )
I believe I mentioned this in another thread some time back, but the Blue Fairy's song from the Canadian animated version of The Velveteen Rabbit tends to make me a little emotional.
My friend introduced me to this song...
