What songs make your cry?

Music

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?

My next series of pinhole shots come from a meetup of the Seattle Camera Obscura Photography Enthusiasts Society in Chehalis at the train museum. I took a crazy amount of shots that day: three rolls of film! That is a lot for me. Here are a few from the roll of Acros 100. I used my Ondu MKii for these.

And here is a video of an amazingly talented woman singing Folsom Prison Blues in her backyard:

This is Caroline Hecht. She played at the Sandy Library a couple of years ago and she is amazing. I highly recommend her album, Swallowed by Swells.
