What songs make your cry?


I have nothing really to post today except this question that I find rather fascinating. I am not in a sad mood today, and I don’t really want to be in a sad mood. But I need blog fodder.

I heard this question asked in an interview on a podcast recently and I thought it was a great question.

There are a lot of songs that make me cry. Recently this particular song has been doing it for me. Which is really annoying because it gets a lot of airplay on the radio and every time it plays the tears come welling up. I’m not even sure if I even like the song. I think I do, though. It’s just so sad.

OK, that was the first time I’ve seen the video. I didn’t know it was on the “13 Reasons Why” soundtrack. I have not seen the show but I have read the book. I have mixed feelings about it. I enjoyed reading it but I think it kind of glorifies suicide, and I have heard people say this is especially true of the show.

So OK then. For some reason this makes the song less sad to me. Isn’t that weird?

What songs make you cry?

  1. I can’t say any songs make me cry… I recently got a little verklempt looking at an Andrew Wyeth painting in a museum. (Room After Room) That has never happened to me before!
    I enjoy listening to anything by Alison Kraus, not for the songs, but for the purity of her voice. It’s amazing.
