What are some songs, Celtic or otherwise, that make you cry?

Mine is the song "Dad" by the group Arranmore. I just put it in the request queue. I guarantee that after you hear it, your eyes will not be dry.

humph.... i am a guy i dont cry... dry.gif get fearsome misty eyed... but dont cry....
but the strange thing is, it depends on my mood... something as off beat as "the worst pirate song" can get me kind of emotional... it depends on what the song is tying me to at the moment in a soulful way.... i do have a hard time doing "green fields of france" it will choke me up sometimes right in the middle of it and i have to stop and compose myself.

and thank you so much for bringing up such a painful subject. While you're at it, why don't you give me a nice paper cut, and pour lemon juice on it. quote mircale max biggrin.gif

One of the songs that make s me cry is Freebird, by Lynard Skynard, of all things. The reason is that it was a favorite song of a paraplegic man that I used to take careof....

Another is Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning by Alan Jackson...song about events of 9/11

]AN EXCERPT FROM A POEM THAT I WROTE ON 10/11/07

WE CAN'T CHANGE WHAT WE HAVE DONE....
BUT ONLY TAKE A LESSON FROM EACH EXPERIENCE
AND MAKE THE MOST OF EACH MINUTE THAT WE HAVE LEFT
AND TELL OURELVES THAT IT IS OK TO LIVE, LAUGH AND CRY.....
PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE ALL WORK TOGETHER
TO GIVE US WHAT WE CAN AND SHOULD EXPERIENCE
AND WE NEED TO CHERISH ALL OF THE TIME
THAT WE SPEND WITH OURSELVES AND OTHERS MAKING THE MOST OF THE SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT ARE OURS..
AND THE ONES THAT WE HAVE YET TO CREATE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAVEN'T MET!!!!![/SIZE]

Ed Miller's Last Trip Home gives me a lump in my throat. I grew up on a cattle ranch where we worked cattle on horseback. I don't have ANY use for horses, but I feel the same way about my sled dogs as the guy in the song feels about his horses.

I'm a guy, I'm soft, and I admit it, and I can't get enough of songs that tear me to shreads. Last time I went through my playlist looking for a list like this I came out with 144 songs, and it's grown since then. I'll constrain myself here a bit

Heather Dale -- Adrift ***
I'll have to agree with "Green Fields of France"
Peter, Paul, and Mary -- "Christmas Dinner"
America -- "Man's Road"
"Once Upon a December" (from Disney's Anastasia, not the rendition from the closing credits)
Garth Brooks -- The Dance
"Cat's in the Cradle"
Traveller's Dream -- "Waterway West"
"Green Green Grass of Home"
"Stormy Seas" (Castles of Gold)
"Castles of Gold"
Great White -- "The Angel Song"
Neil Diamond -- "Morningside"
Clannad -- The Poison Glen
Danta -- "Culloden's Harvest"
Dougie McLean or Danta -- "Ready for the Storm"
Emerald Rose -- "Hills of America"
Gaelic Storm -- "She Was the Prize"
Jodee James -- "Two Shores"
Loreena McKennitt -- "The Old Ways"
"Spancil Hill"
Rise -- "Time and Tide" followed by "I Will Love You Always"
Silly Wizard -- "The Blackbird"
Stone Circle -- "The Homecomming"
Juliane Werding - Trnen Im Ozean
Terry Jacks - Seasons In The Sun
America - Man's Road
America - The Last Unicorn
Heart-Alone.mp3
Renaissance --Ocean Gypsy
Evanescence -- Hello
John Anderson- Seminole Wind

*** I was literally crying for mommy the first time I heard it. If she hadn't been the next county over at the time, I'd have run to her, and almost called anyway just to make sure she was ok.

I'm really surprised noone has listed Men of Erin by the Elders yet. That one get's me every damn time.

Don't know if it's the actual song, the voices singing, or just the emotion that's poured into the recording.

I would agree with you Senera, and also Scorn Not His Simplicity by Phil Coulter.

Mine are "Sgt. MacKenzie" by Joe Kilna, "Tears in Heaven" by Eric Clapton and "I cried for you" by Katie Melua.
All these songs remind me of dear ones who are not longer around. I don't cry easily but these songs really move my brick... unsure.gif

Táimse im chodladh, sung by Dolores Keane is one of the most moving songs I've heard sung.

The Price of Fire by Capercaille


--------------------
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
- Frederick Buechner



If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles,
how can it be called progress?

Amazing grace always fills me with tears, but especially when it is played by pipers (as was done at my dear dad's memorial service last year)
