"Let It Go" by James Bay because I had two deaths in my family when it first came out. Also, that song "7 years" makes me sad.

Awwww! This one goes to Nicki Minaj's Grande Piano. That's song stole my soul and drenched it in pain and tears.

The Beatles' 'Let it Be' with reference to Mother Mary - that was my Mum's name ....

I actually use songs for the purpose of catharsis, and crying occasionally becomes part of this catharsis.

I could name many songs like this but off the top of my head, it would be King Crimson's Epitaph:

"Knowledge is a deadly friend, if no one sets the rules
The fate of all mankind, I see, is in the hands of fools

Confusion willl be my epitaph
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
If we make it, we can all sit back and laugh,
but I feel, tomorrow, I'll be crying

-I hope my minimal punctuation is correct-

Other songs from King Crimson that does this to me to however a lesser degree: one time, moonchild

I find poetry and meaning in their lyrics. Progressive rockers are generally good at this.


Take Roger Waters. Comfortably Numb, Wish You Were Here, Hey You, Echoes, Welcome to the Machine... they have so many almost poetic songs:

"When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb" (copied this one from azlyrics)

Dream Thrum (great song indeed) and Lullaby by the band James "take that child, and teach him senseless... damage the dream, the magic is broken, the house is in ruins, your memory's one sided, this side that you're choosing feels nothing, nothing at all - actually every word in lullaby hits home with me)

I think I'd have an infinite list of songs that does the deed so I'll just stop. I consider these people poets.

Live Like You Were Dying, made me cry because while my dad was dying of cancer he lived with me and I never felt like I did enough. Remember When, always makes me cry because my children have just grown up and got their own places. How Can I Help You To Say Goodbye, has made me cry since I was little. It came on the radio when I found out my favorite Aunt was dying. I think I was 8 for that one.

You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban - It's actually tears of joy as the song was sang during our graduation day.

The song Concrete Angel by Martina Mcbride makes me cry. It makes me think of all the children who are living with abuse and many don't notice.
