Nobody Loves Me
 
Location: Irish In Madrid
Music that makes you cry.

Ok, I know its a tad wimpy, But Im curious so bear with me.
Theres a couple of songs that I find so powerfull that I have actually shed tears on occasion. Im not an over emotional person by any means but something in these songs hits me hard.

The only ones I can think of right now are:

Bjork - Hyperballad (Brodsky Quartet version)
The muppets - Halfway down the stairs

Got any?

Pretty much anything off Antimatter's "Saviour". I swear, whenever I put on that album the sky darkens and it starts to rain outside...

Most songs by Ralph Covert. He's a local songwriter in Chicago who now makes pretty great music for kids. But his acoustic stuff is so sad. www.ralphcovert.com

Here's the weird thing........I was getting on the forum specifically to thank you Most profoundly and profusely for the Lisa Gerrard song "Sanvean." My God........Its music you want to curl up with your favorite razorblade but I can't stop playing it. Its beauty is hypnotizing. Thanks again.

jewel- "abscence of fear" This is one of my favorite songs of all time. unwritten law-"seeing red" is my other favorite but it doesn't make me cry.

i'm way too touchy feely for a dude. i like these kind of threads. off the top of my head:

Dancing in the Moonlight - Smashing Pumpkins cover Thin Lizzy. it is so gorgeous and it hurts cuz i think of the age of 14-15 again

Beck's last lp. jesus h. its good but my god, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LISTEN TO THIS CD IF YOU HAVE ANY HARMFUL ANYTHINGS. 'baby, i'm a lost cause', 'its nothing i haven't seen before but it still kills me like it did before' and so on

Mazzy Star makes me think of the same thing that DitM does

there's a lot of music but my mind is blank. enjoy

OHHHhhhhhh what teenager during the 70s (okay i wasn't alive yet but i still loved it) didn't get depressed by Nazereth's Love Hurts??? we all laugh about it, but the back oh my mind i think 'oh shit that song IS sad'

Sarah McLachlan's "Possession" is just freakin haunting. I just love the part where she says "I'll take your breath away."

"My Immortal" by Evanescence is very moving and emotional.
Amy Lee's voice is beautiful.

"Hush Hush Hush" by Paula Cole is one that almost sounds as if she is crying the song, rather than singing it. Simply awesome.

Kansas - Dust in the Wind
Mae - Giving it Away
Name Taken - Feeling Sorry
Plain White T's - A Lonely September, Radios in Heaven
Slow Coming Day - Most of their Songs
Something Corporate - Ben Franklin's Kite (again, sold out pop-emo, but still sad)
Stereophonics - Is Yesterday Tomorrow, Today?
The Ataris - Between You and Me
The Cranberries - I Still Do (a very haunting song to me)
The Damnwells - For My Own Good, Sleepsinging
The Get Up Kids - Long Goodnight, New Found Mass (2000)
The Juliana Theory - Don't Push Love Away, Into the Dark, Is Patience Still Waiting?, This Is Your Life
The New Amsterdams - Idaho, Lonely Hearts (this is probably my favorite sad song)

I've also found a few good songs going through this thread, too, so thanks to all who replied.

There's already a "Most Depressing Song" thread... I don't know how different this is but I think the other one has it covered... I dunno though...

For me, it's

Thom Parrott - Pinkville Helicopter

Thom Parrott - Aberfan Coal Tip Tragedy

Thom Parrott - Hole in the Ground

Listen to any of those songs, I promise you you will be at least a little depressed afterwards

Music that turns on my tears

Thank you for posting songs that make you weep. These are some tunes that do it for me:

Radiohead - House of Cards;
Scala and Kolacny Brothers - Yellow (coldplay cover), Creep (radiohead cover), The Blower's Daughter (someone's cover).
Dido - See you when you're forty

Ave Maria - any live performance
Chamber music, any kind, live performance
Itzhak Perlman - anything at all

Its hard to imagine anyone being more depressing than Joy Division themselves.

I couldnt say that it makes me cry, but "How Soon is Now" by the Smiths always makes me feel pretty miserable... sort of connects with certain nights of my own youth

"There's a club if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home
And you cry and you want to die..."
