For no reason.

Mine is Wings by Little Mix and I don’t really know why. I’m not even a fan of them, although they’re very cute. I’ve just listened to to the song and the tears are flowing. My DP is hmm.
The other is God Only Knows but I understand why that would make me cry.

Anyway. what songs are guaranteed to make you have good cry.

Fields of Gold - Sting version or Eva Cassidy, it doesn’t matter. 😭😭😭

The Leningrad symphony by Shostakovich, specifically 16-19 minutes. Read the story of its premiere.

Heaven is a place nearby by Lena Marlena is a beautiful song about loss that both comforts & makes me sob

Little Mix are a shit manufactured pop band but wings is very stirring, the chord progression makes it sound all triumphant and hopeful and the lyrics about 'flying' and self esteem and whatever are the sort anyone can relate to. I'm not a fan but I can completely understand it being emotional.

Also road salt by pain of salvation.

And Steven Wilson "insurgentes"

Queen - who wants to live forever
That is quite a sad song.


Bob Marley - sun is shining
I have no idea why.

To Where You Are by Josh Groban and I Find Your Love by Beth Nielsen Chapman remind me of my little Jack who lived for 2 hours also Stay Another Day by E17 which was no 1 when he was born. sad

Billons, but She Used To Be Mine from Waitress makes me cry even just thinking about it!

In terms of pop songs, So Close by Jon McClaughlin always makes me cry as it reminds me of a time when circumstances meant that now-DH and I couldn't be together.

Wind Beneath My WIngs by Bette Midler. Used to play it in a band I was in, and I was head down sobbing each and every time.

Wherever you Are by the Military Wives choir.

Actually, I'm a sap and can cry at lots of songs.

SeraphinaDombegh Sat 02-Dec-17 09:23:51

I know it's corny, but Abba's 'Slipping Through My Fingers". I'm a wreck by the chorus!
