Check this out:

Brahms symphony #4 in E minor. If you ain't overwhelmed yer dead!

Cat

Geez mate, unless it picks up real quick you're going have my death on ya conscience... :|

I slipped downstairs and grabbed the version by Otto Klemperer and the Philharmia Orchestra, having not listened to it for years, and took up your challenge. Very pleasant in spots, but the whelm meter isn't leaping into the red zone yet....

...I'm into the 3rd movement now and getting to the bits that Rick Wakeman nicked for "Cans and Brahms" on the Fragile album, and I'm starting to wonder where I left the undertaker's phone number.... cough..... :o

OK... nice finish there.... on to the 4th movement... I may survive yet...

..oh no... I think I'm fading... NURSE! QUICK! Administer some Tom Waits immediately!.... Orphans, Disc 2 - Bawlers -. FULL VOLUME!....

...phew, that was close....

Chris

Well, I hope I didn't upset Cat, or any other Brahms lovers with my daft jokes...

I'm sure that Brahms' reputation will survive my gags. I quite like the old boy really, and I've got around a dozen of his CDs. Like most beginners I've also played versions of his lovely lullaby on the piano, but he doesn't move me in the way that some other classical composers do. Just as well we're all different - it would be dull if we weren't.

There should be a "Posts that made you cry" post. Cuz I was laughing so hard at that one, I was crying.

Oh come on now little boy, don't be afraid to cry over a song. Let you in on a secret. Girls really dig that!

Hey, I was the first one to chime in on this topic!!!
OK..I'll bite.
I'll have to give a think on this some more but...the quick list would be:

1- Don't Give Up- Peter Gabriel -So (When Kate Bush sings---"don't give up"), I fall apart
2- Release - Pearl Jam - Eddie kills me wehn I listen to that song
3- I dont remember the name of the song but it went something like "Billy, Don't be a hero...". Back in the 70s when I was a kid, they used to play this on AM radio and it got me every time.

Teamwork- A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

Sorry Ginger, but embarrassed doesn't cut it. It's tears or nothing here... :)

Lars! Your comforting shoulder is required over here. Maybe take your shirt off first, a really good cry can take the starch right out of a man's collar......

Topic starter  

In my first post about the subject I didn't mention any touching classical music. But now that some posters added their favorites I would add : Debussy' s 'Claire de Lune', Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto N 2 , some Bach.....but if we combine beautiful music and movies this is my top choice: The final scene of Excalibur, with the majestic music of Wagner (The Funeral of Sigfried - by the way).

So another question(s) :

Do you listen to songs when you feel like crying ?

OR

Do you listen to songs that unintentionally make you cry ?

OR

Are you so tired of a song that even utterance of its title brings tears in your eyes ?

Do you listen to songs when you feel like crying ?No. I take a little helper.
Do you listen to songs that unintentionally make you cry ? Yes, but I tell myself that I will be strong. :?
Are you so tired of a song that even utterance of its title brings tears in your eyes ?Well, a different reaction, but I understand where you're coming from. More anger than and desperation to change the channel than anything. Oddly enough, I can listen to a 10-30 minute song with no problem...if it's good. I bet Sleautobos (Ignar) and Steiner could each lay down some beauts. (Many others on these boards too)

I digress.

This will crack you up but it's a Christmas song. O Holy Night.

Whether its Bing Crosby, Cartman or Celine Dione (who made the worst cover list in the other thread..) this must have been a powerful pop tune even back in the 1800's.

There are others but need to be half in the bag to remember or appreciate them :D

Today, as I was in traffic, I heard 'Is That All There Is?" by Peggy Lee. Nnot my style, but...I remember her on Johnny Carson talking about it. At twelve, she stood in front of her family home as it was smouldered to complete nothingness after a blaze.

Eerie song...eerie.
