It hasn't got to be a "sad song", for me, lots of songs are happy but make me emotional for the memories attached to them.
Here are a few of mine:
I first heard this a few month after I had went through a miscarriage which as you can guess, really hits me hard still hearing it.
This is emotional for me because it was always "our song" with someone special who is no longer in my life, we fell out badly and haven't spoken since.
Possibly a strange one for most, but this was always my grans favourite song, she is still here but has Dementia so pretty much doesn't remember her life and even her family sometimes.
Well here are some of mine:
I felt really lost and this helped me through it. (and I love a lot of Adele's songs, they all make me emotional)
This a song that makes me emotional, but in a good way, sometimes a sad way though:
This one is just so beautiful (I love Christina Aguilera songs):
I absolutely love this song:
I love a lot of Coldplay songs, but this one is particularly beautiful:
I will stop here, but I have a lot of music that makes me emotional: Tupac, Eminem, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Dido, Evanescence, Florence + The Machine, The Fray, Gary Jules, Green Day and I could go on for days haha
@Whispers, I literally love every single song there. Christina Perri-Arms gets me every time, have you heard?
Adele - Someone Like You
I honestly don't know why but 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' always makes me want to cry
'Livin' On A Prayer' makes me think of a really old ex but still an amazing song
and Party Rock Anthem just makes me laugh xD
There's probably lots of songs xD but those are the two I can think of right now.
If It's Love by Train will always be an emotional song for me because of memories.
You're Still The One - Shania Twain. My mom and dad's "song". They danced to it at their wedding and it was pretty much their song after that. My mom passed away a few years ago and whenever I hear this song I immediately tear up and will cry if I hear it all.
Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle. Me and my dad's song. He gave me a book with cute father daughter stories illustrated with the lyrics to this song. Again, makes me cry everytime I hear it!
When Somebody Loved Me - Sarah McLachlan. This sounds silly, but it's Jessie's song from Toy Story 2, when Jessie is remembering her past owner who gave her away when she got older. Waterworks!
I'm Already There - Lonestar. Another one of me and my dad's songs. Listen to the song and you'll see why <3
