- Songs that bring a tear to your eye?
Follow you into the dark – Death cab for cutie.
One day like this – elbow
Both on the ipod playlist in the delivery suite before we lost our son. Very painful memories, either come on i have to leave the room or turn off. Just thinking about them is making me well up.
Shining light – Ash. played at my sis-in-laws boyfriends funeral. Nice guy taken too early. Song gets me every time.Posted 6 years agonickfMember
Knocking On Heaven’s Door – Warren Zevon
The Wind (the album it came from) was released two weeks before he died of cancer. He knew exactly what was coming, and it shows in the performance. He’s doing his best to give two fingers to cancer, and it doesn’t quite work.
The Man Comes Around – Johnny Cash
Another song about impending death, and like Zevon’s performance, Cash’s voice has a fragility that perversely is the song’s real strength.
Both of them are remarkable, and both have me blubbing like a three year-old.
