Tonight I got myself into an awful mood and cried to the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind soundtrack. Alllll the way through it.


And as soon as I started to feel better, Nightswimming by R.E.M. came on and I started up even worse than before.  :cry:

"Maybe Baby" by Buddy Holly.

I was just becoming acquainted with unrequited love when I suddenly heard this song again (it had always been a childhood favorite, and the only Buddy Holly song I ever paid any attention to), and it was "sack of lead bricks to the face" potent. Doesn't help that the guy promptly died after an 18-month career. And even sadder that his widow was pregnant, and sadder still that she miscarried. That guy's life seemed pretty well blessed, but his death was basically tragedy after tragedy after tragedy.

David Bowie - "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" - Bowie desperately screaming "You're not alone" at the end always gets me
XTC - "I Can't Own Her" - The "swirling sky" refrains, where the strings come up has been making me tear up lately
Granddaddy - "Underneath the Weeping Willow"

That's just the last month or so, though...what songs make me cry change all the time.  Sometimes I need something packed with lyrical meaning and intensity, sometimes I just need the right timbre at the right moment of a song.

"Skyway" by The Replacements.

specifically the last verse:

Code: [Select]
Oh, then one day, I saw you walkin' down that little one-way
Where, the place I'd catch my ride most everyday
There wasn't a damn thing I could do or say
Up in the skyway...

kinda seems like a metaphor for needing to tell someone something important (you love them etc.) and leaving it too late.  i was that in that situation, and i heard that song...  hit me pretty hard.

I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine by Beth Orton
Original of I Wish I Never Saw The Sunshine, if you're interested.  I generally don't like Beth's covers because they show up how pathetically limited her voice is, but she obviously made this heaps more tender.

Actually, Beth's Feel To Believe on 'Central Reservation' used to get me teary when it first came out.

Pints of Guinness Make You Strong by Against Me!

The entire narrative is depressing, and more than sad it reeks of despair.  You can infer that the Evelyn didn't have the greatest life with James (A.A. card, ect) but they were in love and when she lost him she never got over it.  37 year later she looks back and decides it was all a waste.  Things don't get better.

Wait, really?  That's very strange to me, and while the movie and the soundtrack are both incredible, I can't imagine crying through "Mr. Blue Sky", any of the Polyphonic Spree, and "Wada No Todd".  Are you just talking about the instrumentals by Jon Brion?

For no better reason than that it is written from a reverse viewpoint from the one I am living right now, and I feel so goddamn guilty.

I think the last 10 posts I've made have been bloggy. Weak boarding, Patrick.

Okay, I guess not all the way through it; it was just the instrumentals, "I Wonder" and "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime". Still the majority of it, though.

Tho' You Are Gone I Still Often Walk With You by A Silver Mt. Zion is one of the most goddamned sad songs I have ever heard. Actually, that band is just one devastating song after another.

Memorial by Explosions In the Sky is another one that makes me all lumpy in the throat regions. And for some reason, Anniversary Of An Uninteresting Event by the Deftones.

Also, the emotional masochist in me loves this thread so much...

The songs that make me feel really sad, dare I say overly emotional, are always the ones that have close lyrical relevance to my life. They just remind me what's wrong, and doing that through music; well. You can imagine.

Lead Sails (And A Paper Anchor) - Atreyu

Conor Oberst's "Breezy"
It was written by Conor in memory of his friend Sabrina Duim. She toured with Bright Eyes and played on Digital Ash in a Digital Urn.

I went to see him in November 08, and he played this song, and I choked up at the FREAKING concert!!! 3 months earlier, one of my close high school friends passed in a DUI accident. Whenever I hear this song, I think of her, and man, if I'm in a good mood and this song comes on shuffle, I have to skip it or tune it out.

Brick by Ben Folds. It's about a couple dealing with an abortion and so terribly sad. The Luckiest also makes me tear up because my boyfriend sent it to me the night we started dating and says it describes how he feels about me perfectly.

BRMC's Promise pulls on my heartstrings pretty hard.

You can dream a little dream, or you can live a little dream...

I like Aes a lot, and this is one of those rare tracks where his lyrics aren't so esoteric you have to spend weeks deciphering what they mean. It's straightforward, powerful, and just freaking awesome. Can't say that it makes me cry, though...I get more of a pump-the-fist-triumphant feeling when I listen to this one.

EDIT-On topic, for hip-hop songs that make me choke up, see Stepfather Factory by El-P.
Also, basically the last 1/3rd of Sage Francis' "Human the Death Dance" record...Blackout On White Night, Hell of a Year, Waterline, Keep Movin'...all heavy on the eyewater induction.

yeah there arent any real tears here either, but it touches the hell out of me. because I've been drawing and obsessing over all things art since I was 5. so it is just so relateable to me!

The Birth and Death of Day by Explosions in the Sky. I really have no idea but the climax has made me tear up at least twice.

Selig Sind Die Toten composed by Heinrich Schutz. My school's choir did this song and the last time we performed it was on a spring trip a month after my dad passed away.

I have it, It's not nearly as impressive as godheads... though they are quite talented... i still listen to the alchemy index.

but there is just no way that this.....    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAhFUXOxm_w

is better than this.....     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br2a0iKn_JA

but, people tend to disregard "goth" music, i guess because "It's like sooo 5 minutes ago!"

listened to both again, and i STILL think the thrice one is better (although if that's the version you've heard, it's a terrible lo-fi version someone's uploaded.  the version on the CD is a lot better in terms of sound quality).

and i don't dismiss goth music because it's "soooo 5 minutes ago," i dismiss it because the vast majority of what i've heard has been a load of over-dramatic wank that sounds like industrial-lite guitars cackhandedly played over a half-arsed slowed-down rehash of a 90s eurodance song.  also i hate music where the image is taken as being more important the music - yes there's perpetrators of this in every genre - but seriously, tell me just ONE goth band who don't dress like an attention-whorish cross between robert smith and a troll that stole some cheap makeup.



...jesus, after this and my comments about gangsta rap, i'm gonna become hated in here aren't i? fuck...
