This is just plain beautiful, and therefore is moving me to tears.

Sade - By Your Side

Everything but the girl - I don't want to talk about it

As cheesy as Everybody Hurts may seem to some, it really is a very uplifting song if you're feeling depressed. It's not a song of theirs I listen to often but on those occasions when I am sad, it has a way of lifting my spirits.

Absolutely. The whole point of the song is to remind people who are sad and suffering that they are NOT alone and that everyone goes through it. What could be more supportive than that?

BTW I thought that David Archuleta version of "Angels " was awful. Really, more often than not, one note per syllable is more than enough. Each to his own tho, for sure ;) .

This part mainly:

Here's to you old skinny Dennis

Only one I think I will miss

I can hear that old bass singing

Sweet and low like a gift you're bringin'

Play it for me just one more time now

Got to give it all we can now

I beleive everything your saying

Just keep on, keep on playing

Whenever I listen to these songs, I start crying! Yes! I love ABBA and I am proud of it and no I am not insane! :P

To me, they are Swedish Pop Royalty! :D



EDITED TO ADD : These beautiful, timeless songs were practically murdered in the musical "Ma Ma Mia" :angry:

I thought of posting it but figured it was too obvious of a choice. The song itself aside, I think the video is among the most compelling ever made.

...and, speaking of Everybody Hurts and Tears In Heaven, has anyone else seen this article?

R.E.M.'s 'Everybody Hurts' has topped a poll of the songs most likely to make a grown man cry, whereas the Simon Cowell-organised celebrity cover version of the same song leads a poll of the tracks most likely to make a grown man bang his head against a brick wall until it bleeds.

It's PRS For Music which has compiled this list having surveyed 1700 wussy men, because obviously no song would make a real man cry. Well, except maybe 'You'll Never Walk Alone' in the right context. Anyway, coming up the ten biggest tear jerkers, but first a quote from PRS chief Ellis Rich.

Ellis: "From this chart, it is clear that a well-written tear-jerker is one that people can relate to and empathise with. It is this lyrical connection that can reach deep down emotionally and move even the strongest of men".

1. R.E.M. - Everybody Hurts

2. Eric Clapton - Tears In Heaven

3. Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah

4. Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2 U

5. U2 - With Or Without You

6. The Verve - The Drugs Don't Work

7. Elton John - Candle In The Wind

8. Bruce Springsteen - Streets Of Philadelphia

9. Todd Duncan - Unchained Melody

10. Robbie Williams - Angels

IMO, I don't think that list is cheesy at all! I do think there are some truly lovely songs there which pretty much strikes a chord in my heart everytime I listen to them! :wub:

Rock N' Rollin' Man ~ I LOVE SO MUCH "Sunday Morning Comming Down", but in this version:

Kiwi ~ The bits from "The Sound Of Music" are superb (it's one of my favorite musical ever)

It makes me cry near the end, when Christopher Plummer plays Edelweiss on the stage, and at one moment the tears are choking him, so Julie Andrews join him in the song.

Ha, I found it:

No actually I'm unfamiliar with her work along with women in country in general. Sounded nice thanks for that.

Lucinda's great, I highly recommend the album this comes from called Car Wheels On a Gravel Road.

Back to the topic at hand, love this one. "Tell the Children the Truth"

I saw a lot of Beatles here. This is my favorite:

The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps

..And George Harrison's version (acoustic):
