Runaway Train - Soul Asylum is just such a one. :cry:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psP1bKKEtHg

I've always liked this song. But I don't think I'll ever be able to play it, at least not sing it, just play the rhythm mindlessly. Every time I try to sing it I get all choked up thinking of these kids (yes, same comment on the video page :oops: ).

That's all...

It is difficult to answer when one does not understand the question.

for me it is 'Love in Vain'..when you have loved in vain then it does break the heart.

Methinks you wear your heart on your sleeve. Which is not a bad thing . . . considering that some people lock theirs up where no one can get to it . . . not even themselves.

Dogbite: Methinks "Love in Vain" is a contradiction in terms.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Yeah, I'm just a big moosh (well, as big as one can be at 5'5" :? ).

Did Runaway Train at kareoke one night, but I didn't quite do it justice. I didn't mess it up as bad as I did Radar Love though. And I wasn't even drinking... which may have been part of the problem!

It's a dry heat!

I always thought a duet by Taylor Dane and Toni Braxton combining Love Will Lead You Back and Unbreak My Heart would be the Mother Of All Tearjerkers.

Love in vain... those words make me remember something...

Basically you are referring to the lyrics, isn't? Do the melodies or harmonies contribute? Usually I don't listen the lyrics (even in Spanish), the music alone transmits those feelings.

:lol: good one!

For me, I've never been able to listen to Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again Naturally" - it was a huge hit just after my father died, and - well, look up the lyrics if you must know the reason.

It is true and I agree with you totally. Some songs will rip our heart a lot. This may be due to the tuning or due to the lyrics. What ever may be the reason some songs will be studded very beautifully.
