One Summer Day - Spirited Away


3DEarthling

One day I was driving and Simple Man came on and idk for some reason it just struck me extra hard that day


tiniweenie2

Simple Man is one of those songs you hear a thousand times and are fine but then it gets you when you’re least expecting it. I had the same experience and it changed how I listen to that song


KatWine

Oh yes. I also had that once with Dust in the Wind. I had listened to that song a million times before, but that one time on a bus it just hit me so hard.


throneofthornes

"She Used to Be Mine* by Sarah Bareilles. A few weeks ago I had a dear friend sit me down and tell me that she remembers the old me, and if I wanted to leave my husband she and my friends were there for me. This song hits a little too close to that nerve. Edit: thank you for all the replies, well wishes and support. A little overwhelming for me to attract this much attention on Reddit for a comment that isn't a stupid joke but I appreciate it all the same. Nothing's really black and white in life and people are usually more complicated than victim and villain, but I am aware of how I want to lead my life going forward and what steps I'll take get there. The old me woke up and is getting ready to grab the wheel! (metaphorically). thanks again, you're good people xo


arkystat

I had a friend do that. Best friend I ever had and truly changed my life. Said she loved me but couldn’t be my friend anymore and watch me be abused. I left that day. She died a few years ago suddenly and I never got to tell her just what she did for me. Edit: thanks everyone for the hugs and awards a really kind words. Sometimes I get sad as we won’t grow old together. Friends are sometimes more than we realize at the time.


TheHighblood_HS

I don’t think there’s any greater validation in your trust of a friend that that. I bet she knew

Well, your comment makes me tear up. It sounds like you have some really wonderful friends. I hope you are okay and are able to accept help if you need it.

Saturn - Sleeping At Last

Deliver Us from the Prince of Egypt. That shit gets me every time and I’m not a crier or get teary-eyed easily. Edit: Thankz for the love guys. Y’all are amazing with your comments. This film reminds me of my childhood. That whole soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and even the cast—it’s gold. Gives me all the feels.

The Prince of Egypt - the forgotten masterpiece! Strange that film never gets mentioned in the same breath as other animated greats like The Lion King, Toy Story, or My Neighbor Totoro. It deserves its place among the all time classics of animation. Beautiful movie


melonlollicholypop

It has been reworked as a theatrical show and premiered in the West End. I hope it will come stateside!


MumofThreeFurBabies

Most of the songs from that movie get me. Especially that one. But also when they sing Through Heavens Eyes. Just...all the songs.

Through Heaven’s Eyes really gives me an esteem booster on the days I need it.

Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers My mom always said it made her think of her late mother. Now my moms gone and I think of her.


megaspark90

Moon River. I would sing it to my horse to calm him down. Last year he had complications from an emergency surgery and had to be euthanized. I sang it through the entire process so he wouldn’t be scared, especially when he collapsed. I have a horrible singing voice and I was crying the entire time but I just didn’t want him to be scared. ETA: Thank you all for the kind words and awards. There is a bit of a silver lining. Through a whole lot of overtime and pure luck, I was able to buy my late horse’s nephew. I named him Silver Lining and for some reason he calms down when I sing Moon River when he’s scared.

Lord Huron “The Night We Met”


Dnth8micuzim

The entire Strange Trails album hits. "Frozen Pines" is particularly great, and a little sad. My best friends father passed away last year, too young and too soon. They loved to mushroom hunt together. I showed her this song shortly after her dad died, I was visiting after not seeing eachother in 4 years (she moved 2 states up). We were mushroom hunting on the most beautiful mountain, Washington state in the late fall, and I played her this song in memory of her father, and right as the chorus hit, we turned a corner and there was a little chanterelle honey hole! We both got chills and began sobbing... It was beautiful. EDIT Thank you to everyone that gave me my first ever awards, and to everyone sharing all the ways Lord Huron touches your heart. You guys gave me some songs to look up!


MrPinataPants

"I had all and then most of you, some and now none of you." Fuckin hurts.

Lord Huron is a criminally underrated artist/band. The new album is quite amazing too.


Sitting_Squirrel

“No Son of Mine” by Genesis because my dad would play it really loud when he was mad at me.


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

Right? He must not have actually paid much attention to the words. The phrase you're "no son of mine" isn't some slam-dunk on the son in the song, it's an encapsulation of the father's self-centeredness and complete lack of empathy for the child he's put through hell. Jesus, it's like when my own mother referenced Mommy Dearest as being what "real" abuse is. Like, uh, yeah, that's kinda the treatment you gave me. Some serious denial going on here.


[deleted]

he was so centered on himself, he did not even care to listen to the lyrics of the music he played to slam his son. my god.


ConstantlySlippery

That’s some next level passive aggressive bullshit. WTF. Sorry about that.


Sitting_Squirrel

Thank you. He had his issues


shahu95

Atem1995

The Show Must Go On - Queen Brian didn't think Freddie could do it because he was so sick. Freddie took a shot of vodka and said "I'll fuckin' do it darling." And did it in one go. It always gives me chills.


VoopityScoop

I really don't think there was any chance of stopping Freddie from trying, especially with a song like that.

Remember Me (Watching Coco a month after my grandma died was a bad idea and that Remember me at the end was my breaking point)


ShadowSync

Oh god the part where Coco and Miguel sing ... my spouse was bawling in the theater. I was a bit better but still, there were tears. So my mom passed Feb or the year that came out. My MIL was diagnosed with cancer July of the year that came out and passed in Novemver. My grandfather passed that May AND my spouse's grandmother (who helped raise them) was having bad memory issues. She ended up passing May of the following year. Let's just say we were not in the right place to see Coco. We own the movie and still can't get more than 20 min in before we go "nope...not ready for this".

Something to be Proud of. I believe by Montgomery Gentry. The only song I ever saw make my dad cry.


Saucer-boy

Rocky Mountain High by John Denver. It's a bit corny since I'm from Colorado, but this song just makes me so incredibly homesick in such a bittersweet way. John Denver was also one of my grandma's favorites.

The Dock of the Bay, by Otis Redding - great song, but reminds me of my late uncle who loved it. It was played at his funeral.


SpriteKid

i found out recently that he hadnt finished recording that song before he died. There was supposed to be another verse recorded but they added in the whistling to finish the song off


aurifae

Songbird, Fleetwood Mac.


Lord_Chungus257

fleetwood mac could make those emotional songs well, another one being landslide


45x2

Love of my life. I saw a video of it where Brian was singing it and they put Freddie on a screen behind him. I cannot hear that song again.


mutantj0hn

I saw this performed this way live in like...2005? I cried. It was so beautiful.


iusehimtohuntmoose

Saw them do it in about 2015 with Adam Lambert. Freddie’s Mum was in the audience. My boyfriend has always told me he didn’t understand how I could get so emotional at live shows, then Brian May pulled that one out and the bf cried like a baby. We skip that song when it comes on now.


AronYstad

The music video to "These Are The Days Of Our Lives" is also really sad, especially if you know the context.

At Sonic Temple 2019, Tom Morello was one of the performers, so naturally I had to go check him out. I can't miss a living guitar legend, right? He's playing all the hits but mostly shortened instrumental versions with a few exceptions. Still incredible to see. Anyway, closer to the end of his set, the backup band starts playing Like A Stone, Tom is playing along too, and I think to myself, "Someone is going to come and sing this, they wouldn't play this without someone doing vocals." Right then, on walks Serj Motherfuckin Tankian from System of a Down. SOAD were headlining that night and I guess Tom and Serj got in touch and made this happen. My jaw dropped for a second before shouting some profanity in amazement. When the chorus started, I went to sing along, but I was tearing up because I was seeing 2 people who helped define the music I liked were together in front of me and it was one of the coolest moments of my life.

Soundgarden was supposed to play Rock on the Range I believe 2 days after he passed away. They had been touring with The Pretty Reckless. Taylor Momsen did an acoustic version of this and it was utterly heart wrenching. I went to nearly every year of the festival and had never heard the stadium so quiet

Louis Armstrong, What A Wonderful World. One of my sister's favorite songs, they played it at her funeral and ever since then I've had to excuse myself from situations where it was playing because the tears just start automatically.


haha-dog-profile-pic

I almost cried, stopped myself though, since I wasn't in the best of places to start crying. I then switched to Life could be a dream which lighted up the mood for me

"You've Got a Friend In Me" after losing one of my best friends. When he died and I heard the song I just broke down.

On a similar note I can't listen to "When she loved me" by Sarah McLachlan because of the second Toy Story, when Jessie realised she wasn't wanted anymore. That song just breaks my heart.

The1Like

Comfortably Numb by The Floyd. It was my old man’s favourite song, he asked me to make sure it was played at this funeral. I did. RIP Daddy-O, I miss you man.


AutoimmuneToYou

This has been my favorite song for no reason. My mom spent 5 days in ICU. consequently, so did I in the waiting room. On the day she died, I finally left to drive 2 hours home. That song came on. I turned it up while I belted the song out and cried. That song played 3x on my way home that day, on different radio stations.


Nrutasnz

Took me a while to find anything Pink Floyd on this post. For me it's Time.


Newbarbarian13

"You run and you run to catch up to the sun but it's sinking, racing around to come up behind you again," that line gets me every damn time. Dark Side of the Moon is a masterpiece, but that run from Time through to Eclipse is just sheer perfection on another level.


SportTheFoole

If there is one thing I strongly dislike about today’s music scene it’s the decline of the album. Pink Floyd had actual albums, some of which I can’t imagine just listening to just one song — I feel like I must listen to the whole thing.

madigans907

LaSer_BaJwa

Over the rainbow/what a wonderful world by Israel Kamikawa'waole - first time I heard it on radio i loved it, but when I downloaded and listened to it again i wound up sitting and crying for almost an hour with the song on repeat. I've never had that experience with any song in my life. It's the song I've asked to have played at my funeral when my time comes.


baseballandmusic13

In my life by the Beatles is one of those songs I can’t listen to, but is a great song start to finish

Casimir Pulaski Day by Sufjan Stevens


seymour_hiney

can't believe i had to scroll all the way down for Sufjan Stevens. i wanted to say The Only Thing has made me cry more than any type of media, besides maybe the tv show scrubs


Tulivesi

Oh Sufjan... Carrie & Lowell is the saddest album I know. Fourth of July, The Only Thing, Death with Dignity, stop me before I just list all the songs on this album. It's funny because the first time I listened to this album it didn't leave much of an impression on me, perhaps I just didn't give it the full attention it deserves, but now I consider it one of the most beautiful and poignant albums I've ever heard.

The Nights by Avicii My father was my hero, and he's suffered dementia for the better part of a decade. He always pushed me to chase my dreams, even if it meant leaving him behind, and we spent so many nights while I was growing up just...talking, for hours on end. *He said go venture far beyond the shores* *Don't forsake this life of yours* *I'll guide you home no matter where you are* *One day my father, he told me* *Son, don't let it slip away* *He took me in his arms, I heard him say* *When you get older, your wild heart will live for younger days* *Think of me if ever you're afraid*


J_pepperwood0

For being a EDM producer, Avicii sure had a lot of beautiful and sad lyrics. Listening to him now always makes me emotional


lostmyselfinyourlies

Listening to Wake me up makes me so sad, he was telling everyone something was wrong and nobody heard him

Avicii wasn't just an EDM producer though, he was THE EDM producer. You could feel the emotion and experience he put into those songs. Always cutting onions...


oldgraykat

"Don't Let Us Get Sick" by Warren Zevon. I am 65 and have lost too many friends over the years. Always makes me tear up.


Anarchaeologist

The Band Played Waltzing Matilda. I'm partial to the Pogues version. ​ "And so now every April, I sit on me porch, And I watch the parade pass before me. And I see my old comrades, how proudly they march Reviving old dreams of past glories And the old men march slowly, old bones stiff and sore They're tired old heroes from a forgotten war And the young people ask "What are they marching for?" And I ask meself the same question. But the band plays Waltzing Matilda And the old men still answer the call, But as year follows year, more old men disappear Someday no one will march there at all. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me? And their ghosts may be heard as they march by that billabong Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?"


PretentiousPygmy

I hadn't even considered this song when coming into this thread but now that you mention it this one makes me incredibly sad too. I know the John Williamson version and there's a couple of times in there that really get to me. The one where he sings about them coming home and how "nobody cheered, they all stood and stared, then turned all their faces away" always gets to me.

SnowPatrol - Chasing Cars


PigLatin99

I was leaving for college about the same time this song came out. One of my close friends had been killed in a car accident a few weeks before. It was the middle of the day and she wasn’t drunk or anything. A giant suv didn’t keep their lane and swerved head on into her. She died alone that day in her favorite car. A car I had been in so many times from middle school on. It was a second hand car from her mom and her mom would pick a bunch of us up after school. So many good memories.


dmgray00

"Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac But it's probably because it always reminds me of a girl I messed up with


Tiberius133

Cats in the Cradle Edit: I typed the song title last night before going to bed and on my phone so I didn't really elaborate. Seeing all your stories below made me want to tell a bit of why I think this is a tear jerker song. Grew up in upper lower class family (if that's a thing). Dad worked on the land as a nurseryman (tree farming) for his cousin during the week and on his own property on the weekends. I have fond memories of that time, even though things were tough and we rarely had any of the "good stuff." Mom started working at the local Wal Mart during late elementary school and through middle school and high school. I moved away after high school and went to college. Got married and a degree and proceeded to move another six hours from Dad. Mom divorced Dad after I got married. I stayed in as much touch as I thought reasonable, calling weekly and visiting when we could (though now, I feel I wasn't as in touch as I should have been). I've lived in another state for twenty years and had six children. Two years ago, Dad fell at his house and was rushed from hospital to hospital and was dead within a month of some pretty severe underlying conditions he never told anyone about. Why this song? Growing up we had an old record player and a double album called [storytellers](https://www.discogs.com/Various-Storytellers/release/7214183). I loved listening to the songs on those records and sill love most of those songs. But that song haunts me. Oddly, ever since Ugly Kid Joe did a cover of it several years back (which I think is an awesome cover, btw), I hear it more than I used to. I can usually make it most of the way through the song, but at some point, I just start tearing up real bad. Doing it now, just typing this. I miss my Dad and have six children I am trying my best to be a good father to so they feel loved.

Leaves From the Vine: Iroh's Tale RIP Mako


shady-lampshade

I watched the last airbender all the way through for the first time in probably ten years when they put it on Netflix late last year. I remembered that episode and that it was sad, but didn’t remember where in the series it was and I wasn’t really paying attention. Those chords start up when Iroh’s walking through the town and it was like my body remembered exactly what was going to happen even though my brain didn’t. Cue deep sadness and waterworks. Even though it makes me sad, it’s an oddly cathartic episode to watch and it’s one of my favorites to revisit.


Genericusername30939

Goddamn, I remember when I was am angst teenager just getting into Linkin Park, and not too long after I started listening to them beyond all the memes, I saw the news about Chester and put that song on repeat R.I.P Chester, you and Linkin really made highschool years less shit for me


[deleted]

RIP Chester, he helped me through my teen years also. At age 27 (2017, August) I went to see a Metallica show here in Seattle, it was f*cking amazing. Before the show started officially, a playlist was going on in the background while the crowd came in. Most of the venue was about full, huge venue, 2, 3k people probably more I'm not 100% sure, a Linkin Park song started, seconds in the entire arena, even with the hustle and bustle of the pre crowd seating ordeal happening and everything else, there was a fairly succinct, collective and audible "awww" and then I want to say another full two seconds of damn near quiet. It was felt through everyone in there. Amazing show Metallica put on that night, I long for the Linkin Park shows I'll never see, but remain grateful for their music. RIP Chester, we all mourned you at the same time that night. It will always give me goosebumps.

I think this one gets to me more because it's a song I've known for years. So much has changed since then, but as the song indicates, the pain has never gone away; Chester carried it with him to his death, and I find that absolutely heartbreaking.

Not long after Chester died, I heard What I've Done on the radio in the car and it just hit me in the feels dude

I love the original by NIN more than the covers, I think NIN made it sound more bitter. Johnny Cash did it well too, but his version of the song is definitely from the perspective of an old man reflecting on his life and I don’t relate to that. NIN’s version is more bitter and to me sounds like it’s from the perspective of a young person whose life has been nothing but humbling and shitty and I like that better. Nothing against any of the covers, I just like more relatable one to me. Edited for clarity.

I’ve always thought it was pretty incredible how different the perspectives are considering it’s the same lyrics.

Kurt Cobain - "Take your time, hurry up. The choice is yours, don't be late." Blink 182 - "I took my time, I hurried up. The choice was mine, I didn't think enough"

I tried to commit suicide when I was 16 and that song really gets to me. Took an overdose of all the painkillers we had and my antidepressants and waited to die in bed. My mum found me in the morning with vomit everywhere and she drove me to the hospital where I survived. The images in that song are so true to my suicide attempt - it wasn’t dramatic or flashy, it was really mundane. I did it in our house late one night, wrote notes for my family/best friend and just went to bed to die. ‘Days when I still felt alive’/‘Remember the time that I spilled the cup of apple juice in the hall, please tell mom this is not her fault.’ All that promise a young person has that is thrown away. I can see that now as an adult but that song really embodies how I felt at that time and for a few years afterwards. I’m nearly 30 now and still have mental health disorders (do they ever really go away?) but I’m lot better and stable after years of treatment. I love that song but it also really hurts me to listen to it. Living through a suicide attempt, you see the aftermath and how much it can hurt/damage other people. I’m glad I survived but it’s very painful to live to see.

Divinity - Porter Robinson and Something Comforting by Porter Robinson Edit: OMG! I’m so moved right now! I knew Porter Robinson had a good following, but I’ve never got so many likes on a post before. Thanks for sharing the love! ❤️Anyone going to his festival in SF? 😚☺️

It happens fairly frequently. Something I noticed is that it doesn't even need lyrics to affect me in that way. Certain instrumentals will trigger an emotional reaction from me and I don't really understand why.
