Music That Hits You In The Feels
I don’t know about you guys but music is something that really makes me connect with my emotions. When a song is done right, it will make you feel a certain way even if it has nothing to do with you or your life.
Music has always been a big part of my life and I have shared a lot of posts about music. I love most genres of music although admittedly I could live without new country- sorry Toby Keith, the pandering just isn’t for me. However, I generally always share songs that I love that make me happy but today I thought I would share some songs that although are fantastic can be total tearjerkers.
Cats In The Cradle
Yup, this had to be the first one on the list because it just gets me every time. The story in the lyrics is so depressing but also so incredibly realistic. How many amazing moments do we miss because we’re too busy working and the sad part is that we can’t even stop working because with the way the prices are these days it’s impossible to survive if we’re not constantly working out butt off. If you have never heard this song I would 100/10 recommend it but have some tissues close by.
Hero Of War- Rise Against
As a history major this song is particularly difficult for me to hear. One thing I have learnt about war is that the people who start them rarely suffer as a consequence. It’s always the innocent that die and suffer. The lyrics for this song are so touching and the contrast between the beginning and end of the song is what really brings tears to my eyes.
Buddy- Willie Nelson
There is just something about this song that brings tears to my eyes. The way Willie Nelson sings it and the soft guitar all just come together to make the perfect tearjerker. His voice is just so filled with emotions, it always gets me. Plus, I associate it with Parks And Recreation now so that makes it even more emotional for me.
Comfortably Numb- Pink Floyd
I used to listen to this song a lot when I was facing the worst of my depression because that’s how I felt- comfortably numb. Nothing brought me joy anymore and it felt like I was sinking in quicksand. Slowly, but definitely sinking. This song still makes me really emotional because of the lyrics and because of everything I went through when I listened to it a lot. I sort of avoid it now for the most part because sometimes it’s too difficult to listen to.
Asleep- The Smiths
I was first introduced to this song thanks to “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.” If you haven’t read the book or watched the movie I would highly recommend doing both as soon as you can. I think the song is so sad and difficult to listen to as it is and when you associate it with the book/movie it makes it even sadder. This song always makes me want to cry no matter how many times I hear it.
I hope you enjoyed this list of songs and hopefully they didn’t make you cry too hard. What song/songs always bring tears to your eyes? Let me know in the comments below because I always love hearing from you and I could always use some new songs to listen to when I’m sad (or pretending I’m in a music video).
