Mariah Carey has a voice that could make me cry. But I really did cry when she did a version of the Def Leppard song Bringing on the Heartbreak. And yes it did sound good. It surprized me to hell and back.

If punk never happened...we wouldn't have ignorant kids yelling Anarchy...f*ck...why did he have to end it like that....

Sorry...off topic...but I guess ignorant punkers who have no idea what they're rebeling against can drive me to tears....

...but I guess just like anything else...you gotta wade through the crap to find the good stuff...

I am moved to tears more when I know the lyrics. A friend who is a songwriter used to send me music, but always with lyrics attached. Powerful intrumentals can move me to tears as well.
Here is something that moves me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6cZZgwFBX4
Evenescence~My Immortal

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus:]
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

[Chorus]

Even without totally knowing all the lyrics, that one gets me. My daughter sings that one a lot; and every time she does, I tear up. There are a few others of theirs that are similar. Lithium is another one.

Oh yeah... I am quite often moved to tears by a LOT of music!
Most anything by Georges Delerue(1925-1992) will move me to tears.... MANY beautiful moments of composer Jerry Goldsmith's (1929-2004)music gets the tears flowing...
Just about anything by Elgar(1857-1934) will give my tear ducts a good workout!
As for rock/pop songs... Pretty much the standard ones that make just about anyone cry:
If(Bread)
Everything I Own(Bread)
Without You(Nilsson)
Morning Has Broken(Cat Stevens)
...to name but a few!

It happens to me a lot!
Posted: 2/28/2009 4:07:57 PM
There are tons of songs that touch me deeply. I can close my eyes and the notes or lyrics of certain songs glide through my body, through my veins. I feel like I can be lifted away by some songs. Bruce Springsteen's New York City Serenade is one of the songs that came to mind instantly when you asked the question. I can feel the notes in that song. I'm not a religious person, I'm more of a spiritual person, though a religious song just about makes me fall on my knees whenever I hear it ... Oh Holy Night ... it's one of those songs I can feel. Those are the types of songs that move or touch me, the ones that you can feel throughout your body.

There are lyrics that make me cry, like Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton or Not Even the Trees by Hootie and the Blowfish. They're sentimental and mean a lot to the artist, it touches me that they share that intimate part of themselves with us. Elvis' song Kentucky Rain brings me to tears. Lots of songs touch me deeply, I guess I'm one of those senstive souls too.

Ah Gumblebum, yes, Springstein's "Streets of Philiadelphia"--made me well up first time I heard it. I have a huge capacity for empathy and I really felt the pain of the poor soul he wrote of in those lyrics. Haunting.

"You Raised Me Up" makes me tear up. Although it is from the book of Psalms, it reminds me so much of how I feel about my Dad...

There's a few other artists/bands that can make me cry, but Vast is... just... powerful. Hits my soul (if there's such a thing) and just makes me feel vulnerable.


Great band. Jon Crosby's an amazingly gifted songwriter.

daughter's concert tonight. There were some very moving songs; and her solo was really really amazing. Teared up more than once.

All the kids were wonderful.

Fleetwood Mac's Landslide

Some Enchanted Evening from South Pacific

Elvis' Don't Cry Daddy

Sinatra's It Was a Very Good Year

Oh yeah, I can't listen to Bruce's Streets of Philadelphia. Just the first few notes are enough to make the water works start. I always fast forward right through it.

it's weird, there is no pattern (that I can see) but sometimes when I get the urge to learn to play a new song on the guitar, the first few times through I will be completely choked up. This happens quite a bit and always with songs that I don't have a prior relationship with...

Music is definitely an enhancer of a mood. I dont cry often now to music, well the last time was when I heard Susan Boyles first performance, what a touching moment..The bagpipes do get to me also. i remember crying as a child everytime American Pie was played on the radio, just thinking of the possibility of music dying. I believe music impacts all ages, for me a very positive way.
