Well, I know something that can be great but it’s not sung, so I don’t know what you’ll think. She’s a Greek composer, her name’s Eleni Karaindrou. For example this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bcx40-VOok is about longing. I feel that its music made for crying, like it helps you bring the tears on. It’s from the movie Ulysses’ Gaze.

I love all the Christian music, but another one that is really haunting is “My Heart will go on” by Celine Dion

I’m moving on- by Rascal Flatts. Always gets me… It’s sad & reassuring at the same time. Life has been patiently waiting for all of us at some point of our lives 🙂

Don’t know if it would work, but When I Get Where I’m Going, by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton.  It was played at my gram’s funeral and evertyime I hear it I have to change it or I’ll start crying.  Sissy’s Song by Alan Jackson might be a really good one.  And maybe You’ll Be There by George Strait.

I don’t have any song recomendations that haven’t already been said but I just wanted to tell you how important your work is and how it never goes unappreciated. A friend of mine has been a victim of violence and while she lived sadly her son did not. They feature him at our memorial every year.

I don’t know if this link will show up or not but here goes:


By: Jason Michael Carroll: Alyssa Lies

This song gets me everytime. It’s basically about an outside looking in type situation on a friend knowing her friend is in trouble. But it’s too late…

I don’t know how applicable this song is to what you are doing, but it is the saddest song I know.  I cry every single time I hear it.

What Sarah Said by Death Cab for Cutie.

Here are the lyrics:

And it came to me then
That every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU
That reeked of piss and 409
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself
That I’d already taken too much today
As each descending peak on the LCD
Took you a little farther away from me
Away from me

Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines
In a place where we only say goodbye
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend
On a faulty camera in our minds
But I knew that you were a truth
I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground
As the TV entertained itself

‘Cause there’s no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous paces bracing for bad news
Then the nurse comes around and everyone lifts their head
But I’m thinking of what Sarah said
That love is watching someone die

So who’s going to watch you die
So who’s going to watch you die
So who’s going to watch you die

and a link, for those who need a good cry.

The saddest song to me is the remake of “Amazing Grace” by Celtic Woman.  It reminds me of my grandma and I had wanted it played at her funeral, but crazy mother of mine didn’t want music. 

It’s beautiful.

These may not fit into your slide show, but these songs seriously make me tear up.


Last Kiss, orinally by these guys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bh4se9YMV3A&feature=relatedbut also redone by Pearl Jam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_sEtNrYlC4 It’s kind of a catchy upbeat sounding song, but the words are SO SAD!

Just a Dream by Carrie Underwood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLntFKtR66g
