What song makes you cry?
Mine is Ray Charles "If I could" I lost my Dad in 2016 and it makes me think of him.

These are the days of our lives by Queen.
Especially the end bit where Freddie whispers “I love you”.
So. Final.

Everybody hurts by REM.
just before I was 18 I played this song and took a huge overdose (cliche, I know), but whenever I hear it, I'm transported back to that time.

Goodbye my lover by James Blunt - I've heard it at too many funerals so it sets me off

Songbird by Fleetwood Mac. I don't really know why, I'm not good with lyrics and haven't a clue what it's about, but it's just a beautiful song and it makes me well up every time.

The scientist by Coldplay. I was a young mother with a difficult baby and little partner support and couldn't work out why I was so unhappy. She's 17 and wonderful now and he's long is so much happier.

Lullabye by Billy Joel. Not sadness tears but more because it encompasses how I feel about my DC and being there for them, even when I’m not there physically. Particularly the last lines ‘ one day we’ll all be gone, but lullabies go on and on. They never die, that’s how you and I will be.’. Makes me feel emotional typing it!

Time To Say Goodbye. I remember sitting in a sunlit Italian square on holiday with my lovely sister-in-law listening to it, both of us knowing her time was running out.Years later it still hurts to hear it.

Home Thoughts - Clifford T Ward

My Dad always used to cry at Tell Laura I Love Her and now he's dead, I cry at it in the memory of him crying. Ridiculous!

Stay With Me - Sam Smith. The first song I heard after having my dog put to sleep, it still gets me every time I hear it 😢

Somewhere over the rainbow - the song played at my DM's funeral (it's from her favourite film and I haven't been able to watch it since)

Supermarket Flowers - Ed Sheeran
I downloaded the album during my DM's terminal illness and would play it while I was in the shower, and break my heart to every time. No one knew I did that every morning for the 6 months of her illness

Nothing Compares To You ...opening bars have me welling up and I have to either turn the radio off or walk away.

Happily married and love DH totally and utterly but this song reminds when my heart was broken seemingly at the time, beyond repair.

Wires - Athlete (my niece was born 3 months premature and this song just reminds me of that time when it was touch and go.) The line "first night of your life curled up on your own" just gets me, every time. sad

Tears in Heaven- Eric Clapton
In the Ghetto- the legend that is Dolly Parton
Dance with my Father-Luther Vandross

Northernmum100 Sun 10-Feb-19 14:26:23

Dance with my father by Luther Vandross. I miss my dad.

A thousand years byChristina Perri . A close friend had this sung at her much longed for baby's naming ceremony and it was so powerful.

Tears in Heaven and Dance with my Father always reminds me of lost loved ones
In the Ghetto just makes me sympathise with those who are born into poverty and despair. It reminds me that the cycle continues

Sorry, love Daddy, by Brian McFadden.
