Music that bring tears to your eyes

Recommended Posts

What music/songs bring tears to your eyes?

 

Mine is "Fly Away" by Corrine May

... and only through my recent setup of ipod>PA2V2>Alessandro MS-1.

 

Didn't have that *sob* effect when I played it over my mini-stereo combo though. The magic of decent cans I guess.

 

Never thought it's possible but then again ... maybe I have mellowed biggrin.gif

I have recently obtained Elvis Presley Greatest Hits CD. Listen to him sing evergreens like "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "Are you lonesome tonight" and i am bowled over-the lyrics seem to come alive. mellow.gif

Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber. If you aint sure what it is, remember the movie Platoon? This piece was used in the final scene when Charlie Sheen sheds his tears while hovering over the battleground in his helicopter.

Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton.

 

Not really tears, but more of it being able to bring forth your emotions and take a step back. Must really read the lyrics though, the words are not too clear (sounds like Eric Clapton is really emotional there, grieving over his son's death)

I got another one (yes .. again tongue.gif )

 

"Somewhere over the rainbow" performance by Katherine McPhee in the current Americal Idol. This was in yesterday's show.

 

Her interpretation of such a well-known and well-sung standard is just so amazing.

Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor

 

Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, second movement Allegretto, the first 3:18 mins I felt sad every time I listened to it. Although the marking of allegretto (translatable as "a little quickly") suggests Beethoven did not envisage it being played as slowly as comparable movements in his other symphonies, but this is still a little quicker than the usual slow movement marking of adagio (slowly).

 

Chopin's Nocturne in F minor Op. 55 No. 1

 

Epitaph (Including March For No Reason And Tomorrow And Tomorrow) by King Crimson

 

And these two Erhu perfomed by Min Huifen (闵惠芬):

Moon's Reflection On ErQuan (二泉映月)

River Water (江河水)

 

YMMV sad1.gifsad1.gif

Come to think of it, it seems rather emotional, given the circumstances at that time.

Here's my analysis:

 

Who can say for certain

Maybe you're still here

I feel you all around me

Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness

I can hear you speak

You're still an inspiration

 

--> Death for the victims, so surreal, yet still real.

 

Can it be

That you are mine

Forever love

And you are watching over me from up above

 

-->Loved ones in Heaven. Died, but forever watching over us.

 

Fly me up to where you are

Beyond the distant star

I wish upon tonight

To see you smile

If only for awhile to know you're there

A breath away's not far

To where you are

 

--> So close, so close and yet so far (I like dreaming)

 

Are you gently sleeping

Here inside my dream

And isn't faith believing

All power can't be seen

 

--> They are not here (in disbelief)

 

As my heart holds you

Just one beat away

I cherish all you gave me everyday

'Cause you are mine

Forever love

Watching me from up above

 

--> remembering the fond times they had together

 

And I believe

That angels breathe

And that love will live on and never leave

 

--> Death will not do us part

 

Fly me up

To where you are

Beyond the distant star

I wish upon tonight

To see you smile

If only for awhile

To know you're there

A breath away's not far

To where you are

 

--> Same as the previous chorus

 

I know you're there

A breath away's not far

To where you are

 

--> Indeed, a breath away's not far, to where you are, given the frailty of life.

 

How's the Literature analysis? tongue.gif
