Songs that Make You Cry

An Afternoon Comment Diversion / Dustin Rowles

Comment Diversions | June 19, 2007 | Comments ()


A couple of months ago, our Tearjerkiest Film Scenes Guide fared pretty well with our commenters, so I thought why not apply the same topic to music in this week’s comment diversion? Personally, I don’t think there are a lot of tunes that have the potential to extract tears from me — I need the added element of dramatic imagery to give in to weeping — but, there are a few songs that can get me slightly misty-eyed.

Certainly, there will be some cross-over with the break-up songs, but I also imagine there’s a slew of other numbers that y’all spent your teenaged years listening to in dark bedrooms while contemplating the demise of a relationship, the unfairness of parents, the general cruelty of humanity or, you know: Death. In fact, there’s a whole subgenre of country-and-western music devoted to the very subject: The bawling cowboy songs. And I think that Eric Clapton has a decent segment of the market covered, as well (Did everyone know someone who died right around the time that treacly-ass “Tears from Heaven” came out, or was that phenomenon specific to my geographic area?)

So, have at it: What songs have the power to make you tear up? I’ll start:

1. “One,” U2.
2. “Praying for Time,” George Michael (oh, jump up my ass — it preys upon my liberal guilt).
3. “Hallelujah,” Jeff Buckley (well, duh).
4. “Your Favorite Music,” Clem Snide.
5. “Sky Blue and Black,” Jackson Browne.
