|There's not a dry eye around here..|
These heart piercing songs have been known to cause a few tears to be shed in the company of friends
Brothers in Arms
Simply one of the most emotional songs ever written and it's meaning can be either very personal or very universal depending on your perspective...Mark Knopfler is overcome with emotion while performing this version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vUDmFjWgVo
A very deep and emotional song that doesn't have any lyrics it's just a tribute to Tiki's grandmother. The evocative sound of guitar and female wailing is absolutely heart piercing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9sV61X5ruo. Prepare to be moved.
Program music is a piece of art that has a very emotional core and you just get lost in the atmosphere of this thing.
Some people may argue the NIN version is the definitive one, but for me the video that Johnny Cash released with this song is just heartbreaking.
Of all the beautiful songs Sigur Ros have, and those are many, there's only two that have actually made these eyes swell up. One was Ny Batteri and the other is this one. The climax is the kicker.
Leave it to Anneke to bring a flicker of optimism to an otherwise desolate song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nOPWW9tqZE
The live version just blew me away https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Upoyl7214HA
Hard to narrow down to one JB song but I find Hallelujah too cold and distant. This one runs the gamut of all Jeff's emotional tendencies, from tenderness to anger to pure emotion of wailing. This live version is my favourite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjO4IenAyUw
|9||Lover, You Should've Come Over|
Ok I lied, one more Jeff Buckley song. This one just hits all the right soft spots. If you don't feel any kind of emotion when he sings "a kingdom for a kiss upon your shoulder" you should check your pulse..you might be dead.
|10||Fat Freddy's Drop|
Hollie Smith, the petite white skinned Kiwi girl with the voice of a Black soul singer takes this song to another level and it oozes emotion from first to last.
I'm a sucker for this kind of blend of pastoral music with ethereal female vocals..
|12||Alice In Chains|
Nutshell is my fav AIC song. It hits just the right balance, uplifting yet sombre at the same time.
You and Yours
Somewhere in the middle of Cloudkicker's uplifting "Let Yourself Be Huge" I was stopped in my tracks by this track and its' hypnotizing melody just floored me.
The Things You Said
Of all the Mode tracks, this one has an urgency to it that really hits me.
Russia on Ice
One of PT's finest and arguably their most emotional next to I Drive the Hearse, Heartattack in a Layby, Collapse The Light Into Earth.
When other prog bands like Yes were riding mushroom trips to places more rooted in fantasy and optimism, King Crimson unleashed Red, an album that was grounded on a more gritty and emotional level.
That ending gives the chills
Pillar Of Davidson
Live's masterpiece and a song which the music and lyrics both feed each other and it's subject matter is so earnestly sung that you can't believe how good this band could be when they wanted to be.
Could've put Shine On here too
Wings for Marie
10 years later, this is now without question Tool's finest moment. The one-two suite of Wings and 10,000 days is so much more human than anything else they've done and as cliched as it's become to flame Tool fans for being so "elitist", if you took away everything they've ever done before this song you cannot deny how powerful this song is.
