Default Songs That Bring a Tear to Your Eye

I am sitting here typing this while listening to Christmas songs on Channel 13 here in Pittsburgh. I love the beauty of the Christmas season and the lovely way some of these Christmas songs are performed by various artists. Some of them even make me cry, notably "Where Are You Christmas", "Silent Night" and "O Holy Night" (especially the beautiful rendition by Josh Groban).

In the non-season category, there are a couple of songs that make my eyes well up every time I hear them.

Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton always gets me good.

One More Day by Diamond Rio.

Concrete Angel by Martina McBride

Faithfully by Journey (long story).

NOTE - Rap music always makes me cry........IN PAIN! LOL!

What songs past or present can bring a tear to your eye?

presently, "Fire Fall Down" by Hillsong Worship, or "Lord Im Amazed by You" by Desperation Band.

i admit to a weird one, I was divorced in 1985 when I was 23. The video "Sara" by Starship started playing on MTV. the combination of his lost love and flashbacks to losing his mother as a little boy used to make me lose it every time.

I am not very religious, but "Amazing Grace" gets me every time.

The first that came to mind was "It Is Well With My Soul". I sang that at my Dad's memorial service.

"The River" sung by Robert Downey Jr. It's very mournful.

"I'm Proud to an American" - Lee Greenwood. That one gets me every time.

"Coming to America" - Neil Diamond. They played that song on the plane that carried the hostages returning from Iran all those years ago as the plane entered US airspace. I can't begin imagine how those men felt finally coming home........alive.

amazing grace on the bagpipes is awesome. i will request that to be played at my funeral.

as for christmas songs, id have to say the "little drummer boy" by neil diamond is the best at drawing up some emotion.

but nothing gets to me more than queen's "we are the champions" when its the steelers on the podium receiving that lombardi!

Oh most definitely those two songs get to me, as well, Stillers. American Soldier by Toby Keith also gets the tears flowing. I'm a fiercely patriotic person and sometimes - especially if played by a military band - the National Anthem brings tears to my eyes.

Tony - when my Dad died, he had a military funeral as he was a proud WWII vet. I had tried to be the pillar of strength for my Mom and kids, but when the bagpipes were played, I broke down.

Eric Clapton-Tears In Heaven gets me to.

But here are some more.

Butterfly Kisses-My cousin was killed in a car accident when she was 16. She was more like a sister to me to. They played that song at her funeral since that was one of her favorite songs. I still can't listen to that song. If I hear on the radio I have to turn the station or if its playing at a bar or somewhere I have to leave that place.

Also when my cousin was a kid she loved Free Falling by Tom Petty. So everytime I hear that song I think of her when she used to sing that song when her and I were kids. So that brings a tear to my eye and I think of her everytime I hear that song.

Candle In The Wind-Elton John. I just think of my cousin when I hear that song and of the rest of my loved ones/friends that I have lost through the years.
