View Full Version : Have you ever listened to a song that makes you cry?

24th Jan 2012, 7:41 AM
What I'm asking here, is have you ever listened to a song, to the point no matter how many times you have listened too, you always cry to it? No matter what, even when you think of the song, you cry?

I do. I mean there are songs out there, that just touch my heart, that I cry just listening to the opening of the song.

There is a song, and I so wish I knew the name of it. But every time, I hear it. I think of my best friend in Junior High, he made the beginning of my 6th grade year (The first year of Middle School or Junior High) seem like it would be easy. But in January, he died. He was only 13. During his funeral or memorial service, they played this song. And every time I hear it, I cry. Wishing he was still alive. He was my best friend, and made me laugh. And now...All I have to remember him by is that song, and the memories.

And Natalie Merchant's My Skin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdnBvEPyke4&feature=related) makes me cry. The words are so powerful. And the way the song comes off. I just love My Skin, even if it makes me cry.

Do you have a song or songs that makes you cry?

When I was much younger, I played Fur Elise, and I started crying for no reason. I still remember that. Also the song by the Beatles, A Day In The Life.

24th Jan 2012, 7:50 AM
Fur Elise? Do you know why Fur Elise? And I have never heard of that song by the Beatles, I'll have to go listen to it. I am sorry that those two songs made you cry, though. Some songs can just sting a heart, and make people...Just feel totally lost with tears.

24th Jan 2012, 8:59 AM
There are songs I can never sing for myself, let alone for friends without dissolving in tears.

Elton John's The Greatest Discovery is one, when he sings about meeting his baby brother for the first time. It begins with the description of a toddler going to investigate a new sound after a flurry of excitement in his home. The parents' reaction grips me, "Large hands lift him through the air, excited eyes contain him there." The last part is the clincher: "and all you ever learned from them, until you grew much older, did not compare with when they said, "this is your brand new brother"."

Le Paquet D'Epingles - the version that Beausoleil sings also always makes me cry. One voice asks someone to marry him over and over by promising something different in each verse - a packet of pins (valuable at the time when the song was first written - it's very old and traditional), a kitten, a beautiful house, a wedding dress, and all of his gold. She refuses him each time. Finally he offers her the keys to his heart and all of his love. Then she sings, "I will marry you". After that, each verse is, "If this is how your love begins, I will accept your packet of pins (or house, kitten, dress, etc...)." I'm tearing up now thinking of it.

There is a lot of powerful songs. I know this may sound lame. But Glamorous Sky by Mika Nakashima makes me cry, because it reminds me of a really good friend of mine, when her and I used to role play. Our stories in our role plays were so powerful, and dear goodness I miss her so freaking much. She was always there for me as well. And she is a major sweetheart. She is what you call a true friend. And her and my character would ALWAYS get together. But yeah, Glamorous Sky makes me cry :(

25th Jan 2012, 2:07 AM
I don't think I've ever cried by listening to a song by itself (though some movies are good at combining music with a sad scene to really bring on the waterworks, e.g. LotR), but there are plenty of songs that send chills down my spine when I listen to them.

-Ilia's Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elcgDP7Q_b8)

-Hide and Seek (The King's Singers' rendition) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBn_AQRl9lc). Also this version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wh3gf2epis) where the music is set to a higher key. I know it's sacrilege to modify a song like that, especially since the chord structure is destroyed in the transition, but I shiver when I hear the high notes.

-The Sounds of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvsX03LOMhI)

-Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIF4_Sm-rgQ)

-Trouble by Cat Stevens (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1tRB7-aBr8). Combined with the scene from Harold and Maude, it's a real tear-jerker. I'd totally recommend that movie if you're looking for something sweet, sad, cheerful, and quirky.

-Several (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kWo8N4QNXM) songs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uejW9xIFCMw) from (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4tEhqQGTBs) Braid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dNu2b8GdXA)

-Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 Praeludium (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQg2TnYnxnI) (this being my favorite rendition)

-Beethoven's Tempest, 3rd Movement (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfjD-DQ5REk) (not my favorite rendition, but the best I could find on Youtube)

-Several (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPaW5rN959M) songs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqoOC6G8H-o) from (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3McpdhQ9VE) Dragon Age: Origins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0L1GZdlM9B8)

-This song from Skyrim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNty4lZ4lkI) (The beautiful little dissonances!)

-Stories from Emona IV by Maya Filipic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvydzEOc3C0). Also lots of her other stuff, especially Anthos. I can't find much of it on Youtube, but it's all available free at jamendo.com.

-String Quartet No. 2, 3rd Movement by Borodin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSdMKJqnnW4)

-Tristesse by Chopin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmQBFLJAIcY). Side note: This song has been my personal (rather bearable) earworm for the past ~10 years of my life. I got a piano compilation CD when I was a kid that had this song and it just pops into my head and forces me to hum it every now and then.

Anyway, I'm not sure how many of these songs would make someone cry, but, if you're anything like me, listening to these songs back to back will probably put you in a bittersweet mood.

Also the song by the Beatles, A Day In The Life.

I absolutely love this song. It's another one of those songs that puts me in a really mellow mood/sends chills down my spine.

EDIT: I just remembered a song that made me cry while singing it in choir. Brahms's Geistliches Lied (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1eob2_6baA). No, that isn't a recording of the choir I was in. But being part of such a beautifully harmonious, Romantic-Baroque sounding piece brought tears to my eyes. It's my favorite song out of every song I've ever sung in choir.

Death Cab for Cutie's Brothers on a Hotel Bed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZWZo-rnciE) was something that made my eyes water a bit the first time I heard it haha. If I get in the right frame of mind and put that on I'm right back to when I was a teenager. Same with a lot of Stars songs, something about them...

-Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley
this one too :faceslap:

27th Jan 2012, 7:28 PM
Anything used in those abused animal commercials. A few Taylor Swift songs also make me tear up. Tied Together With a Smile, Never Grow Up, Safe and Sound. This one is a bit pathetic. I can't listen to Brother, My Brother from the first Pokemon movie without crying. Those damn Pikachu's fighting and Ash turning to stone gets me everytime. :cry:

27th Jan 2012, 10:23 PM
Any of those "Daddy/Daughter" songs that they play at weddings. Gets me all the time.

I don't have an extraordinarily good or bad relationship with my parents, it's just a normal parent-child relationship. But those songs... gets me in the heart each and every time.
Especially Never Grow Up - Taylor Swift.

Goddamit. Who put these onions here??

2nd Feb 2012, 8:58 AM
I really hate sad songs that make me cry. And I finally found the song, that was played at my best friend's memorial service:

Walk Of Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9_VOy7VipQ)

2nd Feb 2012, 9:15 AM
I really hate sad songs that make me cry.

Well my favorite songs are usually high energy ones that keep me awake.

2nd Feb 2012, 1:22 PM
I really love sad songs. I guess I sort of like not just being happy all the time. I appreciate experiencing a range of emotions.

2nd Feb 2012, 3:30 PM
A song that always makes me tear up is Somewhere from West Side Story, especially as sung by Reri Grist on the original cast album. If I was an actor I could use that song if I needed to cry. Also Mad World. And some of the Puccini arias.

2nd Feb 2012, 4:07 PM
When I was much younger, I played Fur Elise, and I started crying for no reason. I still remember that.

Ah, Fur Elise. When I first heard that song, it was used as a theme in a horror movie, and I got scared hearing the song for a while. Doesn't help that some elevators like to play this song as a BGM when the doors closed. The bad quality audio, combined with the echoes it produces made it sound eerier that it should be.

2nd Feb 2012, 6:24 PM
Any of those "Daddy/Daughter" songs that they play at weddings. Gets me all the time.

yes Butterfly Kisses is one of those I use to cry when i heard it but that was when I still had a good relationship with my dad. I'd probably start sobbing if I heard it now diffrent reasons.

I'm currently sobbing at Good To You by Marianas Trench I love it but its kinda painful to hear. Also I could cry for days listening to Thinking of You by Katy Perry more so If I watched the music video its heartbreaking.

2nd Feb 2012, 7:24 PM
The eighth opening to KHReborn makes me cry because I want more episodes....
I really miss that series.

2nd Feb 2012, 7:42 PM
Sayonara no Jikan- Kokia. I don't remember the lyrics but, I heard it first while watching a Suzaku/Lelouch AMV. Made me tear up.

3rd Feb 2012, 11:38 AM
Satisfaction, as performed by Britney Spears (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnkXAMHHaxU).

3rd Feb 2012, 3:12 PM
Ha alright I have one Song, it was back last Year before my Favorite Band Nickelback released their new Album, I was so much affected by the first two Songs they released, that I thought I won't like the new Album, but then one week before the released the Songs for a pre listing and when I came across the Song Lullaby I was sitting here around, crying like a baby, the song totally hit some buttons and it still does so yes a very sad song, a very sad background story a pretty good song and at last I think the entire Album is just fabulous...

But there a probably even more sad songs outside there Damien Rice and nine crimes is another one...

3rd Feb 2012, 11:13 PM
Haven't heard this song for almost 20 years but I found it again the other day and choked up when I heard it.

Suzanne Vega - The Queen and the Soldier (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dt0sXRBLfJM)

4th Feb 2012, 1:47 AM
I know..I have another one, that just popped into my head, when pico22 brought up Britney Spears:

Everytime (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YzabSdk7ZA&ob=av2e) by Britney Spears

6th Feb 2012, 5:04 PM
Come Home, by One Republic and Sara Bareilles. Always tears me up for some reason.

6th Feb 2012, 11:31 PM
Looking In (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B84CpVyArok) and Close My Eyes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gesqcbsQTCQ) by Mariah Carey have always made me tear up a bit. Her best songs are her introspective ones and some of the lyrics in these particular melodies hit a little too close to home for me.

HURT - the Johnny Cash version


24th Feb 2012, 2:38 PM
Brought Up That Way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH0voxnZivU) Taylor Swift

Goodbye My Lover by James Blunt

and you probably find it silly, but Because of You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra-Om7UMSJc&ob=av2e) by Kelly Clarkson is the one that made me actually cry. It reminds me of my father.

24th Feb 2012, 5:28 PM
Possiblilty (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SSApYvnTUQ) by Lykke Li

And NO, its not because of sparkling Vampires in Twilight and when Bella screams her freaking lungs out because her vampire lover decides to leave.

This song makes me cry, because I guess...Maybe its because of the depressing tune to it, or because of how my ex fiance ripped out my heart, and kept putting me in let down situations. But then again...I did that to myself as well.

Brought Up That Way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH0voxnZivU) Taylor Swift

Goodbye My Lover by James Blunt

and you probably find it silly, but Because of You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra-Om7UMSJc&ob=av2e) by Kelly Clarkson is the one that made me actually cry. It reminds me of my father.

I don't find the fact Because Of You by Kelly Clarkson makes you cry, silly. I find it that with that song, you hold close to your heart.

24th Feb 2012, 7:35 PM
My first is Mad World (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4) - Gary Jules. Even tho Tears for Fears' version is good, Gary Jules adds tons of emotion.

Then there's Evanescence performing My Immortal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5anLPw0Efmo) this ones more about a relationship that ended a long time ago. But when ever I hear the song it brings back sad feelings. Which made it tough viewing the video again to do this post.

25th Feb 2012, 9:30 AM
I don't find the fact Because Of You by Kelly Clarkson makes you cry, silly. I find it that with that song, you hold close to your heart.

No, it does make me cry. It brings up unhappy memories :/ I wouldn't say I hold it close to my heart...

25th Feb 2012, 10:18 AM
HURT - the Johnny Cash version


There are many other songs that make me cry, but Hurt by Johnny Cash is truly special. When I first heard it, I was crying through the second half of the song and the end made me bawl my eyes out. It took me five minutes to calm down, and another two hours to chase away the sadness. Yet I never miss a chance to hear it again. I guess I'm a masochist :lol:

25th Feb 2012, 4:13 PM
No, it does make me cry. It brings up unhappy memories :/ I wouldn't say I hold it close to my heart...

Oh, hun. Then I do apologize for saying anything that have brought up unwanting memories. I hope that you can forgive me for doing so.

26th Feb 2012, 3:01 PM
Oh, hun. Then I do apologize for saying anything that have brought up unwanting memories. I hope that you can forgive me for doing so.

Don't worry at all :) You didn't do anything like that. I'm a little too sensitive myself.

The Black Eyed Peas - Pump It (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaI2IlHwmgQ&ob=av3e). The way they murdered an amazing instrumental like Miserlou (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UmmbF1Zyvk) can always bring a tear of horror to mine eye!

26th Feb 2012, 8:43 PM
Halo by Beyonce gets me everytime :/ purely because it was mine and my exs 'song' it was number one when we first got together, and was going to be our first dance at our wedding. So whenever i listen to it i get instantly depressed :(

26th Feb 2012, 8:45 PM
I don't feel quite as embarrassed admitting this now, because two other people have said it already, but Taylor Swift's songs Never Grow Up and The Best Day really set me off. It's their theme, I think. Everytime I hear them I just crack, so I can only ever listen to them in private...I don't think my friends would believe me if I told them these songs make me cry!

26th Feb 2012, 9:40 PM
Don't worry at all :) You didn't do anything like that. I'm a little too sensitive myself.

Whew. And no...I completely understand with sore spots on some subjects. I really do. :(

But back to the topic...

Only Time by Enya sometimes brings tears to my eyes. I honestly do not know why...But it does -.-"

I cry every time i hear that song that plays in the background of Lion King when Mufasa died from the stampeed.

1st Apr 2012, 5:58 AM

Was a song shared by me and a girl that I dated in high school, and was played at my mom's funeral.

1st Apr 2012, 6:13 AM
Hell yeah , so many are so saaaaaaaad ! But I personally , always found sad songs the best . Because , in sadness there is beauty and in sorrow there is hope . I think...lol

Hum..My Immortal from Evanescance made me :cry: but Hello from Evanescance haunted me for a whole year of :cry:

Trouble from ColdPlay make me cry . Rest in Pieces by Saliva .
One song make my eyes go like fountains for some reasons (and it'sn't even a sad song) , is one from Dead Can Dance . Dunno , every time I hear the song I imagine some witch being burned to the stake...and singing the song in defiance...then the fountain get open..and I get ruined in kleenex .


3rd Apr 2012, 4:09 PM
I still get teary listening to Miley Cyrus's ''When I Look At You'' and Evanescence's ''My Immortal'' (I'm listening to it right now). And Adam Lambert's ''Sleepwalker'', so yeah, I cry listening to those songs, and I'm proud of it! :) P.S. Bodhie you got good taste, XD

3rd Apr 2012, 6:52 PM
I have one to add that I recently discovered: Reverie by Debussy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5ot-88UV-Y). I love a lot of Debussy's music, but this one is so wonderfully sad and beautiful. It's become one of my favorite pieces of music.

5th Apr 2012, 11:12 AM
I don't know if anyone here listens to Kpop, but the song 'Ugly' by 2NE1 always makes me cry. Every time. As well as 'Blue' by BIGBANG, and 'It Hurts' by 2NE1. Some people may think it's stupid because I can't understand all the lyrics as I don't speak Korean, but there are certain English lyrics that I can relate to so well and that touch me.

If anyone's interested:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGe0hHvAGkc&ob=av2e - 'Ugly' - 2NE1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GRP1rkE4O0 - 'Blue' - BIGBANG
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUiMaz4BNKw&ob=av2e - 'It Hurts' - 2NE1

I'm pretty sure there have been songs with English lyrics that I have cried at in the past (I am from the UK by the way, I'm not Asian) but all I listen to is Kpop now. My favourite groups are 2NE1, BIGBANG and SNSD. I also listen to some Jpop too (mainly AKB48) but I do not find any Japanese music 'emotional'. South Korean pop has definitely been influenced by Western culture but I still prefer it. By a long way.

6th Apr 2012, 3:08 AM
P.S. Bodhie you got good taste, XD

Thank you :) but I believe that's cose..we watched the same thing ! BUFFYY!
Well Saliva and ColdPlay (both rest in pieces and Trouble) I found them cose of Buffy . And Dead Can Dance was due to Xena !

Reverie by Debussy

Not my usual listening...but I like it !

'It Hurts' - 2NE1
I'm not into Asian music , but that one sounded good . I was exepting to hear DATTEBAYO... :rofl: but that's Japanese not Korean !

One I find utterly blissful.....(not a song but a Soundtrack from Baldur's Gate 2) is Amelissan . The ending theme... :cry: my heart...it'S the ending....

Hide and Seek, by ImogenHeap, it was the real version of Watcha Say.

10th Apr 2012, 8:31 AM
I love listening to song.. But never cried.

20th Apr 2012, 2:51 PM
One song that makes me cry is Porphyrophobia, because the lyrics compared will the cheerful sound of the song makes the person sound like they're trying to convince everyone that they're okay, but they're not, I cry at Feel Good Inc. for the same reason.
The last part of Heaven Knows also always gets me.

On the other side the main theme of Morrwind makes me tear up more because it was the first "real" computer game I played on my own, and I still play it today.

21st Apr 2012, 5:23 AM
The song "Beautiful World" often makes me tear up for a good reason. Second Chance by Shinedown also does because it reminds me of my favorite summer break of all time.

Although I never actually cried over a song, there were a couple that came really close...

I remember that as a child, Canon by Pachelbel had some sort of sorrowful tone... I somehow listened to it after going back home after visiting some of my family knowing that I won't see them for the next year and a half...

But then, I listened to Christmas Lights by Coldplay... on the day after Christmas... that one nearly made me cry too :P

7th May 2012, 4:20 AM
Canon by Pachelbel, still gets me till this day. I still cry when listening to it

7th May 2012, 4:03 PM
The first time I listened to The Best Day by Taylor Swift I cried, but only because I immediately thought of my Dad. When I listened closer and realised Taylor was singing about her Mom I didn't relate to it as much, not because I don't love my Mum but I have a much more understanding relationship with my Dad. Also Never Grow Up made me bawl my eyes out because it spoke to me so much at that time!

The Civil Wars song Poison & Wine is the most beautiful song I have heard in a long time, it makes me think of a past relationship and just tugs at something inside me. The lyrics, "I don't love you but I always will" are sung in a way that really evokes all the pain I feel about that particular guy.

9th May 2012, 9:58 PM
This song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFEDTtKaFzU)

It's likely you won't cry unless you've read the Hunger Games and know about Rue :cry:

10th May 2012, 3:44 AM
I'm not sure if it would be all the time but the songs that often make me cry would be I'm Ok by Christina Aguilera and For the Love of a Daughter by Demi Lovato.
they rip my heart out.

I really love sad songs. I guess I sort of like not just being happy all the time. I appreciate experiencing a range of emotions.
I know life would be weird if we were happy all the time but sometimes you have to admit that it gets to be too much. it's not good being in depression or being sad a lot.

6th Jun 2012, 4:29 AM
A year or so ago I heard Martina McBride's 'In My Daughter's Eyes' and it made me cry. Then I found out I was pregnant and it made it worse. When I found out I was going to have a little girl I couldn't listen to the song without breaking down and crying for five mi nutes after the song was over.
Recently though I found a Sims 2 video about Heartland's 'I Loved her First' For the last two days I have been crying over that song...

6th Jun 2012, 7:36 AM
Bernadette Peters singing "Not A Day Goes By'' by Sondheim. She puts so much emotion into it. But I pretty much cry at anything these days (Over-Emotional trait)

6th Jun 2012, 5:46 PM
Also, "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence, 'cause it reminds me how much I need this certain someone. :(

6th Jun 2012, 7:33 PM
Who Knew by P!nk. Anyone who has lost someone they cared about... Just can't keep from feeling touched by this song.

7th Jun 2012, 4:28 AM
Seraphim--Dead Can Dance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnJOH5PImrw)

My Immortal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5anLPw0Efmo&ob=av2e) And Breathe No More (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8plqhhTHClU) And Missing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_EqXIRiudY) By Evanescence <3
Those songs are some of my very favorite songs :D

11th Jun 2012, 10:23 AM
Well, this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90jU17EpPlM) doesn't exactly make me cry. But it just makes me sad for some reasons.

16th Jul 2012, 6:46 AM
mine are
My Angel- Kellie Pickler (my grandmother passed away and it reminds me of her so much)
Don't you cry by Kamelot (same reason as above)

16th Jul 2012, 2:47 PM
Learned a long time ago not to listen to Puff the Magic Dragon. I don't even like to talk about it.

16th Jul 2012, 3:23 PM
Mine are:

Someone Like You - Adele

Perfect - P!nk

Yeah, I'm kind of a n00b.

16th Jul 2012, 5:49 PM
"Imagine", by John Lennon, also.

17th Jul 2012, 12:07 AM
"Le Paquet D'Epingles" got me as well. So did "Swse Me" by Ivi Adamou and "Daughters" by John Mayer. "Farewell" by Yiruma and "Reverie" by Debussy. But, especially music by Yiruma; it's like he tells stories through the piano. You can clearly feel every emotion through every song, which is why "Farewell" gets me - you feel as if you're watching a "Farewell" moment between too people. "Grieg Nocturne opus 54 no. 4", no matter who plays, catches me as well.

"In the Garden" by Marvin Sapp and "This Too Shall Pass" by India.Arie. Though India's song doesn't make me "cry" as much as it makes me just emotional.

"Help Me Believe" by Kirk Franklin used to do terrible things to my tear ducts before I just stopped listening to it all together. The resulting headaches were hell.

("Amazing Grace" gets me too, but, that's simply the romantic in me.)

23rd Jul 2012, 5:53 PM
Hello and My Immortal by Evanescence makes me cry all the time

So does This song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wwy99VdqNE)

24th Jul 2012, 2:57 AM
In a situation where you just got broken up or just broke up, "Don't Cry" by early Guns n Roses tends to make you cry in fact.

7th Sep 2012, 5:04 PM
Moby - Slipping Away (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGmVQjdMSR4)

Yeah, Moby, seriously! That song makes me think about all the people who have touched my life in the past who are no longer around, and reminds me that I need to appreciate the people who are in my life today, because they won't always be around. It brings tears to my eyes every time.

13th Sep 2012, 1:10 PM
"Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle"... Just thinking about it hurts. My biological father was never bothered with me, and split with my mum when I was the age of 2. I saw him on visits till I was 14 and stopped trying, mum said, if he loves you he'll call.
I'm now 24. It hurts. I really needed a Dad growing up, I still feel like I need one now. And this song just reminds me it's something I will never get back and never truly have.

But, we all are lucky to have some things and not others, it's just a way of life. x

It's such a beautiful song and it's very sad as it's written by one of the members to mourn his father who died before he made it big, and his father was the one who discovered his talent and encouraged him to focus on music.

I had a vague memory of this commercial from my childhood and found it on youtube. The song and pictures make me very sad. (also an interesting anthropological artifact).

"Ave Maria" sung by Luciano Pavarotti, always brings me to tears. I don't know why. It is just a powerful song to me.

I have a whole playlist of songs that I've cried to/over.

They don't really make me cry for any specific reasons or connotations, just music with really...heavy? I suppose is the word? and strong sounding instrumentals flip some primal switch in me and I actually start shaking and then eventually crying. I'm a total wuss when it comes to music.

Omg. Daušalogn - Sigur Ros


probably the bit at 3:40 that really breaks my heart.

probably because i'm obsessed with the vampire diaries and in the scene where the song was being played *SPOILER* >>>> Elena drowns.
