Posted on 09/16/2011 7:47:20 AM PDT by Scythian
Okay, I'll start off, this one really gets to me, here's a classic video in HD of Dan Hill singing "Sometimes when we touch" with the classic touch of being introduced by Wolf Man Jack, but then, it's hard to tell who is the real wolf man in this video. However, this is a great song nonetheless, go ahead and cry you big burly freepers, it's okay, it's been almost three years of Obama, you can always blame it on that if somebody see's you.
Sometimes When We Touch (Live Midnight Special)
“Don’t Take the Girl”
“Seasons in the Sun”
10cc`s Not In Love
First time I heard it I was headin home after a girl
I was in love with broke the engagement off
Someday Never Comes
Creedence Clearwater Revival, from the “Mardis Gras” album, 1972- by John Fogarty
Anyone who wants to hear it will have to find it on their own.
Watch those tears, guys!
Cheesy as it was WASPs Forever Free.
May the Circle be Unbroken, reminds me of losing my mom.
Star Spangled Banner, used to bring chills now tears.
“Cats in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin
Not emotionally-related, but any cut off the Bob Dylan Christmas album would bring most any normal person to tears.
MUSKRAT LOVE - chokes me up every time I hear it.
“Niiblin’ on bacon
Chewin’ on cheese”
You just don’t find that kind of emotion in songs anymore.
Dan Fogelberg - leader of the band
First time I heard Toby Keith’s American Soldier...
“I don’t want to die for you
but if dying’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with honor
‘cause freedom don’t come free.”
Tears in Heaven.
Two for me:
Not sure of the title but Mike and the Mechanics: It’s too late when we die - on the radio on my drive from New Hampshire 1/2 hour after being at my dad’s bedside with his last breath.
The other with Mercy Me - when he stands in Jesus presence on that day.
“My Woman, My Wife” by Marty Robbins
“I Will Remember You” - Sarah Mclachlan
“If I Die Before You Wake”
I am a woman but I can tell you the song that brings my husband to tears...Dancing With Cinderella, by Stephen Curtis Chapman. After Stephen’s daughter died in the horrible accident that song was heart-breaking enough, but then our older daughter picked that as her daddy-daughter dance at her wedding. If any man here who has a daughter doesn’t get misty-eyed over that song!
Bobby Goldsboro - Watchin Scotty Grow
Not only makes me tear up, it makes me want to leave work right now and go home and hug my little boy.
“Honey” - Bobby Goldsboro
The name of the Mike & the Mechanics song is “The Living Years”. The Mercy Me song is “I can Only Imagine”.
Glad to help. :)
Generally hip hop makes me want to cry and either shoot the radio or run from the room.
“Walking Her Home” - Mark Schultz
I love it but can't listen to it any more. That song was popular when my great father was loosing his battle with cancer.
I don't know about songs, but the only Movie I saw that made my dad cry was the Movie October Sky
This song came out just after my father passed. Years later after my daughter was born, the lyrics hit even closer to home. It still makes me teary everytime I hear it.
Every generation blames the one before
And all of their frustrations come beating on your door
I know that I'm a prisoner to all my father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage to all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years
Oh crumpled bits of paper, filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations, I'm afraid that's all we've got
You say you just don't see it, he says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement in this present tense
We all talk a different language, talking in defense
Say it loud (Say it loud), say it clear (oh say it clear)
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late (it's too late) when we die (oh when we die)
To admit we don't see eye to eye
So we open up a quarrel between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future, it's the bitterness that lasts
So don't yield to the fortunes you sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective on a different date
And if you don't give up and don't give in, you may just be OK
Oh I wasn't there that morning when my father passed away
I didn't get to tell him all the things I had to say
I think I caught his spirit later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo in my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years
“That’s My Job” - Conway Twitty
Dad used to cry at “Old Shep”. About a dog.
From Peter Pan - Return to Never Land
Maybe it’s the singers tearful voice, but I can’t get pass the dang first verse without choking up.
Long Black Limousine
“Ben”, gets me every time. (Not! lol)
I Am Weary Let Me Rest - The Cox Family
Little Bessie - The Stanley Brothers
Gloryland - Ralph Stanley
‘The Grand Tour’ - George Jones
Tim McGraw song “Grown Men Don’t Cry”...if you have a daughter, you will tear up ;-)
Drive- Alan Jackson
Small Town Southern Man- Alan Jackson
Remember When- Alan Jackson
“Bitterfly Kisses” - if you are a dad with daughters, you NEVER want to listen to that song.
“Butterfly Kisses” - if you are a dad with daughters, you NEVER want to listen to that song.
For The Birds - Juliana Hatfield. Gets me every time.
Thats My Job - Conway Twitty
Definatly a tear jerker!
EVERYTIME I EAT MY VEGETABLES I THINK OF YOU by The Ramones. I think this will be Hillary Clinton’s campaign song.
`Ninety-nine Dead Baboons’ always gets me.
"Letters From Home" - John Michael Montgomery
Travis Tritt - Foolish Pride
Tonight - Elton John
Rascal Flatts - Skin (Sarabeth)
Lot of great ones here, but nobody comes close to writting sad songs like C.W. McCall . Grab a tissue and read one line from one of his gems.
” the sign said clearance to the 12 foot line, but the chickens were stacked to thirteen nine.”
Not a man but the three songs that make me cry (even if they are playing in public) are from a man’s perspective:
“Tears in Heaven “
“Dance With My Father Again”
Can’t get through a one of them.
