Songs/pieces of music that bring tears to your eyes/take your breath away, etc.

.

Songs that bring tears to my eyes (okay, maybe not literally):


"Stolen" - Lucie Silvas

"Love of My Life" - Queen

"Leaving Paris" - Craig Armstrong (instrumental – solo piano)





Pieces of music that take my breath away (again – maybe not literally):


"The Earth Prelude" - Ludovico Einaudi

"My Name is Lincoln" - from "The Island" soundtrack - Steve Jablonsky

"Now We Are Free" - from "Gladiator" soundtrack - Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard

End Titles music from the film "Independence Day" (1996) - David Arnold




Your suggestions – for other similar pieces of music – would be welcome...

I love this thread idea! I'm sure to post more as I come across songs/hear them on the radio.

These three always get me, though:

"Wind Beneath my Wings" by Bette Midler
-My brother and I played this for our mom at her funeral. I tear up a little within a few notes.

"The Dance" by Garth Brooks

And, probably not what you're expecting in the thread, but this song used to make me tear up, albeit from a different emotional perspective:

"Father of Mine" by Everclear

Bright Eyes - Art Garfunkel. We played this leaving my daughter's funeral carrying her out. To this day it is like a punch in the stomach if I randomly hear it out somewhere.

Adele's cover of I Can't Make you Love Me. I've felt this song acutely. Anyone who has ever loved someone and not been loved back will get it.

Fix You - Cold Play. When the guitars come in at 2.25.... I get goosebumps every time. I'm not sure another song has ever physically given me a reaction like that. The louder the better for this song.

I remember a time when I was so on edge and burnt out that I couldn't listen to anything on my iPod. Then I found a CD of Enya's Watermark and put it on. It was exactly what I needed. The emotional release was intense ... almost orgasmic. I cried and felt a great peace overwhelm me when the "On Your Shore" track finished. I never dreamed that any piece of music could move me so.

Other pieces: Franz Schubert's "Ave Maria." That goes straight to the target, every time.

And George Harrison's "Here Comes The Sun" usually lifts me up, too. I hear the people clapping, and I want to clap, too.

"Touch of Grey" by the Grateful Dead. I listen to it and think that maybe I, too, will survive.

You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny.
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?

Here With Me -Susie Suh and Robot Koch. This song, with its beautiful lyrics and haunting melody exactly expresses what I feel

If I Had A Heart - Fever Ray. When I first heard this a couple of years ago, I actually stopped and was mesmerised.

Paco de Lucía Concierto Aranjuez; Adagio - Joaquín Rodrigo.

Loreena McKennitt. A stunning performer, she is able to recreate and transport you to worlds. Her music, especially La Serenissima and Beneath a Phrygian Sky just takes my breath away.

The last music that brought tears to my eyes... well, it was a street concert in Eureka CA (Old Town), and I was too close to the speakers, and Elvin Bishop's guitar was REAL loud...

Otherwise, I get pretty carried away by Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. And Bach's violin partitas.

"Almost Lover" and "Say Something" get me every time. Have you seen the video for "Say Something"? It wrecked me; I was so unprepared.

Yep, no hurry to see it again. I'm beginning to think I should buy stock in Kleenex.

Silent All These Years by Tori Amos usually gets me.
When She Loved Me and Good Enough by Sarah McLachlan get me all choked up too.

I was coming to post these two songs!!!! I actually posted Accidental Babies in another thread just last week.

Those are two of the saddest songs I've ever heard. Accidental Babies is just brutal.

I would add to that list Rootless Tree. Man. What power.

Almost Lover is haunting. And I'm pretty sure I have a crush on the singer.

You lot have some great musical taste!
