    Slow Pulse featuring Cathy Batistessa – Riva

    my contribution

    It has a great deal more poignancy if you play this beautifully haunting instrumental directly beforehand.. somewhere quiet

    Not sure why it’s got such a weird video – not the original video I don’t think.

    Give It at least 45 seconds… Heartbreaking.

    It’s always going to be a personal thing, different songs will have different emotional attachments for people. But I’ll still say Barber’s Adagio With Strings.

    It is indeed a personal thing. I can’t listen to Elvis’s ‘always on my mind’ without crying. Its pathetic. I literally break down and weep like a baby

    My best friend died in a car crash when we were 17. It was his favourite song at the time. It hasn’t got any easier to listen to in twenty years. I don’t think I’d want it to either

    I’m going to have a cry

    Track 05 – “Ending (Ascent)” by Brian Eno from the “Apollo Atmospheres & Soundtracks” album.

    On a more personal level “Daddy’s Gone” by Glasvegas strikes a hauntingly familliar chord with me also.

    …. and the Band Played Waltzing Matilda
    And the old men still answer the call
    But year after year their numbers get fewer
    Some day no one will march there at all

    The Pogues haunting version of Eric Bogle’s anti war song

    First heard this as my grandfather’s generation were getting thinner on the ground. Brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

    Ohh, and in a similar vein – The Navy Hymn…

    … disconcerting to see that some tossers from across the pond regard it as the US Navy Hymn – more a case of US Navy?, Hmmm…

    Talking of tears…
    Atmosphere by Joy Division. Can’t listen to that without remembering John Peel dying.

    Then there’s Burial: ‘Fostercare’ is bloody gorgeous.

    Yep Brothers in Arms – very moving as the music to the superb series of the 90s, Civvies.

    Also Richard Marx’s Hazard. About a guy who gets wrongly accused of his girlfriend’s murder…

    Heh Surf Mat is an 80s boi!

    For me, “Days” (prefer the Kinks’ recording) and Stevie Wonder’s “Lately”, there a a few others that will also make me blub on cue.

    Yeah, it’s nice to occasionally be reminded how shite the 80s were! 🙂

    The one that always makes me choke up a bit is The Ashokan Farewell.

    Apparently Jay Ungar, the composer, wrote it after the end of a music gathering when he felt the loss of the group of people he’d spent so much time with – I think the melancholy tone of the piece captures that sense of loss really well.

    Somehow Westlife and Dizee Rascal just don’t quite hit the same spot…;-)

    Some 80s music is brilliant IMO – not the “obvious” sh1te that gets played at 80s nights but the better stuff.

    Nik Kershaw, UB40s early stuff, Billy Idol, Grace Jones, Level 42, Herbie Hancocks dancey stuff, Jean Michelle Jarre, Eurythmics, Stranglers, the list goes on and on…

    ton – good call. Written after the death of his son Conor I think? Horrendous incident that still spooks me out to this day.

    agree matt. very sad indeed…. 🙁

    Clapton stopped playing it in 2004, as well as the song “My Father’s Eyes”.

    “I didn’t feel the loss anymore, which is so much a part of performing those songs. I really have to connect with the feelings that were there when I wrote them. They’re kind of gone and I really don’t want them to come back, particularly. My life is different now. They probably just need a rest and maybe I’ll introduce them for a much more detached point of view.”

    Still might give listening to it on YouTube a miss though!

    I thought that was the obvious shite… Though an 80s night is somewhere you’ll never find me! (I’ll give you Grace Jones though).

    Hurt, the Jonny Cash version definately. First song I heard after learning of a friends death in a paddling accident.

    Perhaps I shouldn’t admit to this one (Leonard Cohen), but dodgy videos aside…

    Sorry, cant work out how to get the video to sit here…
