More bitter sweets on tearjerker ave. I play these once every blue moon and just BAM! Blurry vision..
Any specific examples? I love music that just does something to your soul, regardless of lyrics.
Still the most emotionally compelling, intrinsically powerful, utterly eargasmic piece of music I've ever heard - despite being entirely instrumental. This just brings the feels like no other for me.
Turn off the lights, put on your favourite set of speakers/cans/IEMs - & immerse yourself in the sheer inexplicable beauty that this song invokes so perfectly. Don't think - just listen.
Sylosis - Where The Sky Ends
Some of the most deeply moving music for me is by the Indian instrumentalist, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.
One very personal song for me that has special meaning and always brings a tear or two is Oleta Adams', "Get Here."
Sting - Why Should I Cry For You. I'm not even a particularly big Sting fan but this one just kills me.
The Mahler mentions made me think of the Adagietto from his 5th symphony. Doesn't necessarily make me cry but I think it might have when I first heard it about 35 years ago. Brilliant and profound piece of music.
Brian Eno's "An Ending (Ascent)" got to me the first several times I heard it. It's been used in a fair number of films now. Even Top Gear has used it on their show.
Joey Fehrenbach - Behold
I remember I watched that Top Gear episode with the Aston Martin v12 vantage. I got tears in my eyes.
