Songs that Make you Want to Cry

Here are mine:

From 50-first dates, the "somewhere over the rainbow" cover with the ukelele.  Gets me every time...

Dashboard Confessional's  "Vindicated"

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine" when my ex-girlfriend used to sing it.  Real soft & sweet, made me teary-eyed!

"As long as I have music"  I don't know who the author is.

There's this Patty Griffin song called "Nobody's Crying". Oh my freeking goddess. I cannot listen to this song without crying. And I'm a grown man. She's a magical musician.

OK, here's my real answer: Natalie Merchant, "Seven Years" and "My Beloved Wife"

Awesome songs and I don't get emotional easily.

This one gets me, too!!!  They played it on ER when Dr. Green died, and the whole episode was about his relationship with his daughter, so now whenever I hear it, I think about my dad  :'(

lots of them, lately.

Into the Mystic (best song ever) by Van Morrison, because it was "our song" with recent ex.

To the Morning by Dan Fogelberg. Ex's parent's song, has a lot of emotional connection for one particular point in our relationship (when we were really falling in love).

Country Roads, by John Denver, bc ex used to sing it to me to help me fall asleep, especially when we were long distance.

Goodnight Elisabeth by Counting Crows, because it reminds me of another ex and another sad time.
