    Default Songs that can make you cry

    What are some songs that make you actually lose your breath and make tears come from your eyes?


    Some emotional songs for me are:


    Maggie - Colin Hay

    Colin Hay of Men At Work goes solo and sings of love lost.

    The Dying Rebel - The Wolfe Tones

    The song recounts the aftermath of the Easter Rising of 1916.

    Joe McDonnell - The Wolfe Tones

    Brian Warfield of the Tones wrote this song to honor the Hunger Strikers of 1981.

    Sniper's Promise - The Wolfe Tones

    Written by OIRA Volunteer Joe McCann in the early stages of The Troubles.

    Spoiler: show
    The song is especially sad because it is sadly ironic. The song tells of an Irish Republican shooting a British soldier. He then shows mercy and lets the soldier live. Not long after he wrote the song, an unarmed Joe McCann was shot in the back, then shot 10 times as he lay wounded on the ground.

    I hate Aaron Lewis and typically find Cold to be very bland, but I like that song.

    Phil Ochs - Here's To The State Of Mississippi

    Always gets to me.

    Here's another one.



    Soldier - Harvey Andrews

    This song tells of the selfless death of a British soldier named (Sgt.) Michael Willetts. While stationed in Northern Ireland during The Troubles, a bomb was planted in a police station by the PIRA. After discovering it, Sgt. Willetts put himself between the bomb and a handful of civilians. It went off, and he was instantly killed, but he managed to save the lives of the civilians.

    There really is particular song that will make me cry but at my age I have lost so many friends and loved ones, so on occasion I will hear a song that I can associate with one of them and it will emit emotions....and those are private.

    That's a beautiful piece with a very interesting history Cia. The instrumental part is J.S. Bach's Prelude No. 1 from the Well Tempered Clavier. But the sung melody and words were added by French composer Charles Gounod over 100 years later to make the piece you hear in the video.

    Pretty kewl huh?

    Karen Carpenter does such a great job too. What a tragic life for someone so talented.
