I read somewhere that something like 90% of people have cried over at least one movie or song. While it’s normal to get emotional over these things occassionally, I find that I cry during a film or a song at least a few times a month. Is this normal?
Examples that have happened within the past month:
I cried during a sad scene of the new movie Inside Out
I cried during Land Before Time when Littlefoot’s mother dies (this makes me cry every time I watch it!)
I cried while listening to a Blue October song
….I’m sure there’s atleast one more that’s happened recently.
Now, I’m not talking about a few tears streaming down and that’s it. I’m talking sobbing. Like I am shaking trying to hold my emotions back (because if I actually let out what I’m feeling, I know it would be way over the top given the situation). The tears start flowing and they won’t stop for atleast 5 minutes or more.
I’m a huge music lover and I write songs and play an instrument, so I understand I may be a bit more emotionally “in-tune” with some songs than a non-musical person but other than that, I really don’t think there’s any excuse for how extreme it gets.
What do you think? Do you get overly emotional often? What kinds of songs/movies make you cry?

I get overly emotional very easily. Songs not so much, except when I was going through a breakup listening to breakup songs or songs reminding me of that person, but movies and books most definitely!
Examples – Movies: Titanic, The Fox and The Hound, Beauty and the Beast, Dead Poets’ Society, and so on. Basically ones with loss, death or animals suffering in some way. Or even ones with really happy moments or something, like The Help.
Examples – Books: as above, things with loss, death or animals suffering. Or really happy moments. Books like The Notebook, A Walk To Remember, Marley & Me.

The Land Before Time will forever make me cry. I dont know how thats a childrens movie because it ripped my heart out as a kid.
I’m not a huge crier, but there are random things that make me cry. The “Inside every good dog is a great dog” Purina commercial makes me cry, the music video for “See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa, that episode of Futurama with Frys dog…
I don’t consider myself overly emotional, but there are some things that just get me

high my crying sisters unite lol
I cry all the time over stuff. Music, movies, tv.
I cry at work due to being face to face and in a Jo where people tell you there life story.
I am just a very over emotional person and a natural born weeper. Xxx

I cried so hard during UP that I scared the children sitting around me LOL I’d only been dating DH a few months at the time. I’m surprised he didn’t dump me after the amount of ugly crying I did at that movie.

I don’t cry real often but when I do, it’s full on. I’ve said this before, but I’ve heard so much about Marley + Me that last time it was on I turned the TV off rather than watch it to the end; because I didn’t want to be a blubbering mess for the rest of the day.
yeah “UP” got me too.
We own the Harry Potter DVDs so I’ve seen them multiple times, yet the “flashback” scene near the end of the last movie (I won’t say more because, spoilers) has me bawling every. single. time.
Even some TV ads get to me.

Yep, I’m a crier! Weirdly, I didn’t cry when my Opa passed away, but movies/books/tv I definitely get teary. Not full on sobbing, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that! Obviously you get really into it, and that’s cool! I think crying is theraputic sometimes, and honestly it can be so nice to just let it all out!

I wouldn’t call it overly emotional. It’s just on the highly emotionally reactive side of the spectrum.
I don’t cry a ton at irl stuff, and I’m more prone to happy tears than sad. In terms of crying at art, I never at songs, rarely at books, but I cry often and hard at anything on-screen: YouTube videos, TV, movies, commercials. My boyfriend makes fun of me, but I just get super invested in narratives!

I’ve cried TWICE during the commercial for Iams dog food with the lab named Duck. I love dogs.
Ive cried when these guys got a lot of gold on Gold Rush. I was happy for them.
Ive cried every time I’ve seeN the movie Whiplash which is about a drummer performing well. I was just really proud of him.
those are all within the last few months. I am highly emotional.

Hell yeah! Im such a baby when it comes to sad movies and songs. I even remember when I was pregnant my hubby showed me a commercial on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpf2hsZGsJM and I sobbed like a baby, and he cracked up laughing.
Pregnancy made me so emotional I even cried watching soap operas
Even now though I get emotional but for some reason I actually like the feeling. Like yesterday I was getting some work done on the lap top and listened to “warning sign” by coldplay i was so sad but then i listened to it a few more times!!
Im still getting over the trauma I experienced watching sons of anarchy…Im so lame…

I cry ridiculously easily. I hate it so much, I pretty much refuse to watch movies or shows that I think will make me cry. I once googled “how not to cry” trying to find a solution, and aside from taking deep breaths or distracting yourself, there was no help.

I have only cried during 2 movies – Cold Mountain and Marley & Me. Neither were sobbing crying either, just a couple tears.
Only 1 song has ever made me cry and it’s because it was played at my grandma’s funeral when I was 11.
I’ve never cried reading a book.
Honestly I don’t understand how people can cry during every sad movie or sad song. That’s just not how I am so it’s hard for me to get it.

Sigh.. I ugly cried during “Chasing Life” on ABC Family Monday. It was bad, even my dog tried to console me. I cry often though. I’m a sap!

I cried like a baby during inside out. I wanted to sob but I was in the theatre. Movies just get to me. My husband and I watched PS I love you the first year we were dating and we both just sobbed in each other’s arms after that movie.
I don’t usually cry for music, there has been the odd song here and there that will set me off though.
