Not sure about tears, but a lot of The Cure songs get me into a depression, that's for sure.



Oh yeah, especially ones off Faith and Pornography, if you like that sort of depressing-introspection, you gotta check out the first two Joy Division releases...

There is a song by the Chameleons titled "Here Today" in which a guy was in a car crash and is slowly dying and the lyrics are what he is going through, even calling for his wife...

(Links at the end of the lyrics)

Don't know what happened
But somebody lost their mind tonight
Not sure what happened
But I don't think I got home tonight
There's blood on my shirt...

The clap of thunder and
I see my life go flashing by
The smell of sulfur and
I weep as I embrace the sky
I heard somebody scream...

Where is my wife?

My chest is burning
I think someone set my soul alight
Don't know what happened
But I don't think I got home tonight
I wonder why...

Madness here today
Ahhhh, I've just been blown away away
Where is my wife?
Where is my wife?
I'm draining away...


The acoustic version was recorded later but you can hear the lyrics more clearly.... https://youtu.be/odwRoxvIK1c

Here is the electrified original: https://youtu.be/5syS8rb7tfc

Took a poetry course in Undergrad. For homework I had to bring a song that was poetry (lyric wise) to class.
Probably my favorite assignment ever. If I got that assignment now, it would be Prisoner 2 from Lupe. It's about the prison industrial complex.

Songs don’t move me to tears, but some music does bring up emotions or just sound great listening to on a late night drive.

I had a similar assignment for English 102. I believe I used Regina Spektor’s “the flowers”

Lupe is a poet.
If you were a young person between the years 2005-2015 his lyrics are so applicable.

Like that song, too, Cuth. Due to my useless capacity of remembering unnecessary stuff, I remember first seeing the video of it while channel surfing between commercials in the first gm of the 2002 playoffs. I liked Cat Stevens' (and/or Yusuf Islam's) more noted songs, but hadn't heard that one to that point in my life. Bland game, too. It was on the now-defunct VH1-Classic. Back then, they repeated music video programming 24/7. Miss that channel. MTV took it over and it now predictably sucks.

A couple of other good 70s songs I discovered on VH1C were "Suzanne" by Leonard Cohen and "Redemption Song" by Marley.

Dunno if I already answered to the premise of this thread, but some of Lennon's stuff gets me misty if I start on to remembering him alive. Great soul + tragic figure combination does the trick for emoting. Tons of other greats have died too young. Watching their wasted brilliance feels tragic and it should. EG Joplin singing "Ball And Chain" or Hendrix playing, "Hey Joe", etc. It's pitiful how some of the true titans were given such ignominious ends. Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Ray Vaughan, J Dilla. Could go on and on.

This track is literally poetry. It's kinda sad that this came out in '07. And 11 years later, it still rings true.

Music is so personal, so what makes you emotional is different for everyone.

Each one applies to me in a certain way.

Piece of Clay - Marvin Gaye

Woman - John Lennon

Color Him Father - The Winstons

Bye.

An interesting comment from Youtube:

Gene Bradley
1 year ago (edited)

After the Viet Nam war ended I contemplated suicide many times. I guess it was more about the guilt of surviving while so many of my friends died. Kind of hard to explain if you have never found yourself in that situation. I suffered depression for years, but I never gave in. Too stubborn I guess. I'm in my early sixties now and there is not a day that passes that I don't cry. Try holding a friend in your arms knowing he is breathing his last breath. Realize it just as easily could have been you. Even returning to CONUS was hell. People spitting on you, calling you baby killers and throwing drinks in your face. I went to Oshkosh, WI for Airventure 2015. There was an area set up for vets. As I approached the entrance a vet whom had lost a leg and and arm was sitting in a wheelchair, He looked at me and said welcome home. No one had ever said that to me. I began to cry uncontrollably. The funny thing was that I also felt that all I had done and witnessed finally made since. I learned to never give up and never give into depression. It may take time and many tears but things do seem to work out eventually. Give out, but never give in.
As one friend said to me, " In a hundred years this won't mean f--k

As big a hit as E.T. was for Spielberg and as "Speilbergian" as it is, I wonder what percentage of the credit should be given to Henry Thomas and the folks who found him, to Spielberg himself, and to Williams for creating the background to Spielberg's emotion & thrill cues. It's hard to imagine some of Spielberg's emotionalism in the medical scenes and end scenes being as effective as they were without Williams. The scenes where the young actors were tearful and innocent were designed by Spielberg to be tearjerkers for the parents who took their kids to see it, but those scenes were all paired with Williams' ability to be somber and bombastic in the same score. He's a big reason that movie was so well-liked by the adult viewers moreso than the little kids who didn't know any better at the time.
