This is such a prescient post, that I had to comment. I discovered some new (new to me) artists last night, and there were a few times the raw passion and emotion coming through the music made me tear up a bit. I will share a few that stirred my emotions;

Ben Howard - Diamonds

Bastille - Pompeii

James Bay - Hold Back the River

I am a huge fan of acoustic music. The sheer simplicity of a guitar and vocals, to me, allows the performer to emote much more easily... if that makes sense.

Great Post!!

There are so many popping into my head, I would be remiss if I didn't add the following;

Temple of The Dog - Say Hello To Heaven

Chris Cornell - Sweet Euphoria

RIP Chris!

Mad World by Gary Jules is another...

Moment you'll tear up:

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had

Top 55 Sad Songs That Will Make You Cry

A parents’ worst fear became a reality for Eric Clapton on March 20, 1991 when his four-year-old son, Conor, fell from a window of a 53rd-floor apartment building in New York City where his mother, Italian actress and model Lory Del Santo, resided. Clapton, who didn’t live with Del Santo or Conor, arrived moments after the accident occurred.

According to the New York Times, the incident happened when a housekeeper opened the window — about 6 feet high and 4 feet wide — to clean it when Conor wasn’t in the room. Before the window was closed, the boy darted into the room and through the open window, landing on the roof of an adjacent four-story building.

The tragedy led Clapton to write “Tears In Heaven” several months later with songwriter Will Jennings. The song was featured on the soundtrack to the Lili Fini Zanuck directed film Rush and later on Clapton’s Unplugged, part of the popular MTV Unplugged series.

A " Top 55 " that doesn't include this isn't a proper " Top 55 "

I actually had my first "Musically Induced Religious Experience" this past week. No, I'm not religious, but it made me weep like I had just met little baby Jesus in person.

You can find listen to the full albums on youtube (but it's better to actually own the music, artist support + no interruptive ads), but the albums:

1. Beggars
2. Major/Minor

By Thrice.

These guys are hands down one of the best bands I've ever heard, and the lyrics are something you DO NOT hear anymore. They have meaning, deep intricacies.... My soul was touched in places I never knew existed. Dustin (lead vocalist) is one of a kind when it comes to song writing.

100/5, would definitely recommend.


You should really check out their alchemy index 1-4 albums.


The song below makes me cry almost every time.

Imagine living in a dimension that appears almost identical to the one you were born in, but everyone is a sociopath or psychopath, where love, compassion, honesty, and integrity are all dead.

Now imagine the moment you are greeted by family and friends when you finally escape this hell and "come home."

This song has special meaning to me, and I can no longer listen to it without losing it. My cousin was killed when I was still in Junior High, and this song came out right about then. I remember hearing it afterwards, and it made me break down. Beautifully Haunting Song.

My Father passed away 12 years ago… “The living years” was my father’s funeral song…so every time I hear it…it makes me cry…




“Incomplete” by James Bay is another tear jerker…

This one reminds me of my MooMoo.
I saw Melon's last show in Houston.
Makes my eyes moist.

This one gets me in light of the recent passing of a very dear friend.

VNV Nation - "Illusion"
This song was dedicated to a young woman who was murdered. Her and her boyfriend were attacked for simply being different. Andy Huang's video seems to be best accompany the song.

Amazing Grace, Played on bagpipes

Agreed, The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards version is awesome...

Amazing grace! (how sweet the sound)
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!

Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
