Music that makes you cry? - Page 3

post #31 of 175

Was listening to Eva Cassidy's Live at Blues Alley today... About half of that album makes me cry, but especially Fields of Gold, Autumn Leaves, and What a Wonderful World. Amazing singer, amazing album.

Good call on Eva Cassidy.

 

To which I'll add:

 

Bonnie Raitt's version of Dimming of the Day

 

Holly Cole's version of River (and Dear Dark Heart)

 

Aimee Mann's Save Me (and quite a few more of hers)

 

Johnny Cash's version of Hurt

 

Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah (actually, most versions this Leonard Cohen classic)

 

Bob Dylan's Not Dark Yet

 

Fairground Attraction's Moon on the Rain

 

Emmylou Harris' Bang the Drum Slowly

 

Jennifer Warnes' version of Joan of Arc

Both of us embedded videos. Can't you see them?

 

Edit

Here's a direct link to the video I posted earlier:

2nd edit

Since I'm here, I might as well post this video. I'm surprised I didn't think of it earlier; it's definitely the song that has made me cry more often than any other. This song is dedicated to the late Esbjörn Svensson, who was a Swedish jazz pianist, and a personal friend of Iiro Rantala who performs in the video. If I remember correctly, Iiro has stated that he was depressed/down/sad for a couple of months after his friend died, and I think you can see in the video that he is playing from the heart.


Those who are not familiar with Iiro Rantala should know that he is jazz pianist whose music is often very upbeat/cheerful/playful and many of his songs are kind of based around his virtuosity as a pianist. This song is a huge departure from the music he has made earlier and I find watching him play something like this to be a very powerful and deeply moving experience.

Bright Eyes - 'The Movement of a hand', 'a spindle, a darkness, a fever and a necklace' and 'sunrise, sunset' are absolutely masochistic. Check that out.

Beyond the Gray Sky sometimes makes me cry, because I should have died from an overdose of Aspirin (200+ pills) and handfuls of stuff that said Don't Take With Aspirin. but somehow I survived.

Once you've "been there done that" with suicide, you have a MUCH different view of it.

Have to agree with you. It is one hell of a song.

RAP makes me cry. What has happened to music???
 

post #42 of 175

There's plenty of good and meaningful Rap. Modern Rap (for the most part), sure.

Bland and generic music has and always will be around, some genres die out while others can inspire new ones in certain ways. Not all rap/ hip-hop is what you hear on the radio but if you just don't like the style that's cool.
