Okay Susan...you owe me!

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

"And see the tree how big it's grown..."

Not revealing Susan..
I had a conversation about this topic the other day and a friend of mine, and "Honey" was said to be the one to reduce a person to tears.

Honey...yes...

"Tell Laura I love her"...I'm probably the only one here who remembers that one...it ALWAYS made me cry...

Most anything by the Righteous Brothers...

And the musical score behind "Lassie"...sniff sniff...

And I think it's Ronnie Milsap's voice that makes me mist over when I hear "Smoky Mountain Rain"

Okay Larry.  lol

My mom used to play "Honey" when I was growing up, made me cry every time..especially the part about the angels..

"and Honey I miss you and I'm being good."

ahhhhhhh...

my Mom still has it on a 45...

See my Mom had/has a huge music collection from the 50's, and 60's....I grew up listening to it all...*smile* happy memories

*thank you for that Mommy*

My reaction to music is odd in this regard.

If I am watching a film, sometimes the right music is just enough to push me over into quiet weeping (but only if the room is dark - I have this neurosis about crying where anyone can see me).

If I am simply listening to music, I don't cry.  Never have yet, at least, without some other stimulus ... like I am already depressed and would have cried eventually anyway.

However, when I sing, I often get choked up when the story gets sad.  I seldom can finish Lorena McKennitt's adaptation of "The Lady of Shallott" by Tennyson without my voice becoming querulous at the end.

Great responses everyone!
Kar- Exactly what I'm asking for

Sky- I've never really had trouble with singing touching music. I guess I think of it as sort of a mission, that I Have to sing the song as beautifully as I can so I can give the full beauty of it to the audience. It's my job

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

*sigh* music is a very emotional experience for me. i can cry for many songs, depending on my mood, but ones that get me mostly everytime would have to be...

stellar (acoustic) - incubus
Hello - evanescence
for crying out loud - meatloaf
places that you've come to fear the most - dashboard confessional
don't - jewel (probably the most cry worthy... god what a poet that woman is)
the warmth - incubus

beautiful lyrically and the singers ability to 'really sound like they mean the words they are saying'
hehe the list would go on... i'm a very emotional young person. so what? I'm proud of that!!!

-Laura

you're the only one keeping me alive

It has been far too long since I have actually been moved to actual tears over music, however there are still certain songs that tend to do a nnumber on my insides. They are (in no particular order):

Superstar (The Carpenters)
Cat's In The Cradle (Harry Chapin)
The Power Of Love (Celine Dion)
Butterfly Kisses (I don't remember)

There is another song that sends me over the moon, emotionally, that I don't know the titel or the artist... It's about a father's love for his son. It goes from the artist and his father, to the artist and his son to the artist and the Father.
Anyways... these are my thoughts.

Beside my window
I wear a face born in the falling rain

Vincent by Don Mclean always get to me.

Puff the magic dragon because to me it represents lost innocence (don't know why...it just does)

Whiskey Lullaby for sure

Letters from home (John Montgomery) because it is so fitting with times we live in

Being with you, by smokey Robinson. just the words...since about the 4th grade that one got to me...I was a hopeless romantic before I knew what being one was...

Prince has one - 17 days... that one makes me a cry baby...

Crazy Love by Poco

When the thought of you catches up with me by David Ball...that one is due to accociation with a very special person.
Oh and
Last date by Floyed Cramer but it isn't sad tears...it's just cause it's soooo pretty...(I love that song)

Oh and if I am not close (physically) to where my mom is around Christmas, I will loose it every time I hear Silver Bells.
She used to play that on the piano when I was really young and I accociate that song with her at Christmas time.

I bet there are more...I'm a cry baby...LOL

"Adagio for Strings, Op. 11--Samuel Barber" I'm impressed. This is one that moves me as well. Also;

Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov

(even attributed the weep at the first listen in this prose poem; http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum50/HTML/002100.html

Lacrimosa by Wolfgang Amadeus

(this one crumpled me. you can hear it on the link of this poem but may have to look a click or two http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum91/HTML/001413.html

and just today I found my new obsession. I didn't cry but I was (am) moved by this and will have to get the CD this

Bellatrix by Rene Gruss

a portion of which can be heard here http://www.renegruss.com/Music.htm

Those are all classical

I am moved by Judy Collins'
La Chanson des Vieux Amants (The Song Of The Old Lovers) and 'Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye on her Wildflowers CD which I used to listen to as a lonely 16 year old at an all boys boarding school in 1969

Jacque Brel's Les Vieux (Old Folks) will sadden and his Ne Me Quitte Pas (If You Go Away) which was translated by Rod McKuen and made famous by Sinatra

Gillian Welch's Annabelle still stings introduced as it was by a short time abandon love

I'm sure I could dig up more but don't want to be a board hog.

Thanks for sharing

Lacrimosa by Wolfgang Amadeus

His whole requiem rocks my world, RS, but I must say I favor Brahms' requiem a bit more

Thanks everyone

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

cry or tear up?

Sorrow - byHans Zimmer/Lisa Gerrard (from Gladiator and Naudet brother's documentary 9/11)
Adagio For Strings - Samuel Barber
Arms of the Angels - Sarah McLachlan
Vivaldi Seasons - any part of it, just for the beauty of the string work
Hurt - NiN.. the first time i heard that
Anything with pipes can do it..even Mull Of Kintyre
