Songs That Make You Cry

I just put up one about movies, so I figured that I'd make one for music too.



Bear with me. There's a lot.

"You and Me" by Lifehouse (If I hear the first five notes, I go psycho.)
"Stay (Faraway, So Close!)" by U2
"With Or Without You" by U2
"Fix You" by Coldplay (Shut up. )
"Mr. Curiosity" by Jason Mraz
"We're So Far Away" by Mae
"Skin" by Rascal Flatts
"I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLaughlan
"100 Years" by Five For Fighting
"You'll Think Of Me" by Keith Urban
"I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" by Colin Hay
"The Hero Dies In This One" by The Ataris
"Goodbye My Lover" by James Blunt
"A Long December" by Counting Crows
"Nebraska" by The Lawrence Arms (Lyrics have a special meaning to me.)
"A Lack Of Color" by Death Cab For Cutie (Played it on loop before my friend left for the Air Force)
"Home To Me" by Josh Kelley
"All I Ask Of You" from Phantom of the Opera
"Here Without You" by Three Doors Down



...yeah and I probably forgot some, too.

One Tree Hill - for the reason it was written and how moving I find the lyrics to be

A Sort of Homecoming - no one reason, this song just affects me, I love it

Everybody Hurts - speaks for itself

More Than This by Roxy Music - lyrics get me

Bridge Over Troubled Water

Only Tounge Can Tell by Trashcan Sinatras - I have no idea why

Pass in Time by Beth Orton - again, not 100% sure why

Who Wants to Live Forever - Queen or Sarah Brightman version

That'll do it.

"Ultraviolet" makes me cry too just because it's an amazing song to me. Not because it's sad.

Find the River is my favorite REM song and I cannot believe I left it off.

Someone Saved My Life Tonight by Elton John also makes me cry a bit...I think it's largely his voice...Daniel, too.

Smiths - I know It's Over
Springsteen - The River
Ryan Adams- Voices

ok, they don't actually make me cry
but I find them quite haunting & depressing
yet excellent

These generally don't make me cry so much as have a lovely melancholia.

Film -- The Church -- it's instrumental, but the music does it to me every time
Swan Lake & It's No Reason -- both by The Church
Civil War Lament, Trapeze Boy, Providence, Even As We Speak -- Jack Frost
Horsebreaker Star, Dream About Tomorrow -- Grant McLennan
Hurricane Lamp -- Warp Factor 9
The Last Day of Our Acquaintance, I Am Stretched On Your Grave -- Sinead O'Connor


I'm sure there are more

Sky Phenomenon - Jens Lekman (I didn't cry actually but this song always get to me...)
Waiting For The Moon - Belle Sebastian
Sing For Absolution - Muse
Citizen Erased - Muse (just the last parte of the song when I saw it live...)
Too Much Love Will Kill You - Queen (I still don't know why, but it was just once too)
Street Spirit - Radiohead
Love Is Blindness - U2 (the live version that unfortunatelly I never saw personally )

Generally I don't cry to music very much but the one that gets me every single time is Johnny Cash's version of 'Hurt'.
