DISCO DUCK!

Everytime I hear this, it brings tears to my eyes and an icepick to my ears!

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

LOL Roy, I thought I was the only person who cried to Honey by Bobby Goldsboro. That song would get to me everytime.

When I was about 20 I broke up with a girl and was totally shattered. It was my first real broken heart. I was trying to get over her and I Can See Clearly Now by Johnny Nash would play on the radio. This song was about someone finally getting over a broken heart, and I tried to pretend I was doing the same... but I'm tellin' ya, the tears would flow.

And Rikki Don't Lose that Number by Steely Dan always touches me deep, it was my first wife's and my song. Things were good then, and when I hear this song I can't help but remember those times.

That song made me react in a different way - used to have me reaching for a bucket. It's so sickly sweet, it'll rot your teeth! And as much as I've always loved the Everly Brothers' music, "Ebony Eyes" was another one that used to bring on the technicolour yawn.

Pass the smelling salts, please..........

:D :D :D

I won a bet with that Goldsboro song. Some young lass thinking she was tough and could never cry to a song. 10 minutes later she storms into my office "royyyy, how could you DO something like that to me.....boo-wahhhhhh....". I still feel a little bad.

Topic starter  

I once had a list of 100 heartbreaking songs (from Rock, Soul, R&B, Country,and Pop) and this one has been considered the number one in the list: George Jones' ' He Stopped Loving Her Today' a tale about a guy that commited suicide...George Jones honest singing does the rest.

I don't think He Stopped Loving Her Today implies a suicide. The old guy stopped loving his lost woman because he finally croaked. Great country song!

I was recently on a bus travelling between Liverpool and London (in the UK), feeling far from home (Australia) and listening to Bow River played by Ian Moss from his Six Strings Album. I was more than a little teary by the end of it.

Other than that, I would echo what Chris C said earlier, which was something along the lines of....
"the older I get the more easily I am moved emotionally." In my case it's by most things though.

Regards,
Paul
