    Songs That Provoke Tears?

    For some unknown reason, I have a weird love for songs that are tear inducing and emotional, or full of meaning.

    A few of the ones I have:

    How to Love - Lil Wayne
    Forever and Always - Parachute
    Briane - Boyce Avenue
    Angel - Sarah McLaughlin
    I'll Be Your Strength - The Wanted*
    Moments - One Direction
    Iris - The Goo Goo Dolls
    I'm Already There - Westlife
    F*ckin Perfect - P!nk*
    When You're Gone - Avril Lavigne*
    Someday - Nickelback
    Never Gonna Be Alone - Nickelback
    Lullaby - Nickelback
    A Little Bit Longer - Jonas Brothers*

    Some of these are quite personal to me (everything starred), some are not. What are some that make you emotional?

    Oh my gosh, I totally get this. Music has affected me like this all my life - my parents have videos of me aged 5 singing and crying to Life on Mars by David Bowie... I'm just like sobbing ''Mummy I just love it so much'' haha.

    Songs that remind me of people/places do this to me a lot... traditional Ugandan songs and drums absolutely kills me. And loads of folk music that reminds me of childhood summers - just hearing tiny parts of the melodies makes my heart ache.

    And I have a lot of albums that are so tied to times in my life that I just can't listen to them without mental preparation - Lorde's album got me through so much at the end of last year, and I have to turn off the radio if I hear one of her songs now because I don't want to ruin how sacred they are too me.

    I also really appreciate crappy pop songs - I was at this Robyn concert last year and everyone was like, going mental, but I just wanted to cry because her songs are all so emotionally intelligent and she finds a way to make dance music really deep and sad.

    Oh and the really sleezy songs like Cocorosie's stuff, Leonard Cohen, old-Lana Del Rey that remind me of my boyfriend. They have the power to physically hurt me.

    Pahaha, sorry for the life story. Here's my list of really emotional songs...

    Lana Del Rey - Pawn Shop Blues
    Ben Howard - Black Flies
    The Smiths - Asleep
    Chance The Rapper - Lost
    Amy Winehouse - Some Unholy War
    The Vaccines - I Always Knew
    Lucy Wainright-Roche - Wild Mountain Thyme
    The Civil Wars - Poison and Wine
    Leonard Cohen - Chelsea Hotel NO.2
    Cocorosie - Raphael
    Daughter - Medicine and Youth
    Angel Haze - Black Dahlia
    Hudson Taylor - Butterflies
    Nirvana - Heartshaped Box
    Marina and The Diamonds - Obsessions

    First Day of My Life, Bright Eyes. I remember hearing this for the first time and tearing up, watching the music video and bawling, and then calling my boyfriend and demanding this to be our wedding song (Four years later it still is!)

    @oboeplayer1: Ooh I love Bastille, What Would You Do is such a great song.

    I was looking through my iTunes just now and found a playlist of them:

    Diana - One Direction*
    I'd Come For You - Nickelback
    Love Sewn - The Wanted
    Heart Vacancy - The Wanted*

    Love You More - JLS (aka one of my future wedding songs)
    The Heart Never Lies - McFly (aka potential wedding song #2)
    Not Alone - McFly*
    Thinking of You - Katy Perry
    Untitled - Simple Plan
    Welcome to My Life - Simple Plan*
    Wanted - Hunter Hayes*
    Carry You - Union J* (even though I don't like them anymore...)
    Lego House - Ed Sheeran
    Fix You - Coldplay *
    You and I - One Direction (potential wedding song #3)
    The Girl I Knew - Lawson
    In The Arms of An Angel - Nicholas McDonald (he dedicated this to a little girl he was friends with who passed away from cancer, so sad)
    Ronan - Taylor Swift
    Runaway Train - Soul Asylum
    Say Something - A Great Big World
    Heaven's Gonna Wait - Hedley
    Little Things - One Direction*
    Rocket - The Wanted*
    She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5*
    Who Knew - P!nk (I remember being like, 10 or 11 and just crying because I would belt this out so hard and I loved it so much)
    Because Of You - Kelly Clarkson
    Dear Darlin - Olly Murs
    My Wish - Rascal Flatts
    I Need You Now - Olly Murs
    Flying Without Wings - Westlife

    The starred ones are personal ones, turns out, I'm either a massive sop, or, I've connected with a LOT of songs, haha.
