The first song that popped into my head:

“Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor.  Every time (and I do mean EVERY time) I hear it I cry like a baby.  I love it though!

Music has always been very important to me and I relate different events with different songs, but to list a few…

Make you feel my love – Adele

The Luckiest – Ben Folds


For some reason I’ve been very emotional lately when I hear Perry’s ‘When I die young‘ and I can’t listen to Tim McGraw’s ‘If you’re reading this‘ with out crying!

The two pieces of music I chose for my ceremony do this to me…So I guess I chose them for masochistic reasons ๐Ÿ™‚ Air on the G-String by Bach and Moonlight Serenade by Glenn Miller. Fortunately I was too distracted by other things when I was walking down the aisle to truly feel the music and start bawling.

Only at Christmas…The Christmas Shoes.  I am not a religious person at all but I cry every single time I hear this song.

Winter Winds by Mumford and Sons kills me

And about a million others but those are two that do it every time!

Falling Slowly from “Once”.  Actually, a lot of the songs from that movie hit me in a way most contemporary music fails to.  I think it is because it has such a raw, acoustical sound.

Growing up I was always rather stoic, but I sang. I sang for weddings, funerals, in church, in choirs, in the shower — wherever I could. And it truly was an emotional outlet, so I find music very emotional in general and have been known to cry during really happy songs, too. Which songs I cry on depend on any given day, though. But I cry in general. ๐Ÿ™‚

Any songs that deal with daddy/daughter or mother/daughter inevitably make me cry.  For example:

“Mama” – Carrie Underwood
“I loved her first” – Heartland

Those are my two favorites ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Antony & the Johnsons “Hope there’s someone.” This man has the most beautiful and tender voice and his songs get me every time especially the one above. SO DEEP and PROFOUND! I recommend all to check him out.

Our wedding song! Come Away With Me by Norah Jones…every time I hear it, I am immediately taken back to when we were dancing at our wedding and I tear up.
