Instrumental starts at 1.25 minutes.
I refuse to hear it again. Even its ironic use in a Noah Baumbach film made me uneasy
Jeff Beck - Where Were You
(I'm not being silly here, this song usually does make me cry.)
I hate to go against my rock and roll roots...
... but whenever I listen to the Original Broadway Cast recording of Hamilton and play "It's Quiet Uptown", I lose it every time.
This is gonna be a bit morbid but, true...I cannot listen to the early UK 60's instrumental Telstar without getting wet-eyed. Dumb as this sounds, the sound and, I guess, even premise of the song makes me think of my mother as she was-depending on our beliefs-soaring up to heaven upon her death. If that sounds retarted, so be it. It's totally true. Once the song comes on the radio (it's played on SIRIUS 60's and Underground Garage on occasion), I have to change stations. Can't do it.
The Langley Schools Music Project-"Desperado"....from one of my favorite albums of all time, this song can really choke me up. Sung by a nine year old who may not fully understand the lyrics she is singing, yet brings out an incredible depth of feeling to the song.
At least most often
Richard Thompson - How I Wanted To
Shannon - Henry Gross
Telstar indeed conveys a sad/melancholy/lost feeling. I understand your comment entirely and even without having had your personal experience, I second that emotion.
As for me, it's always been Puff the Magic Dragon. Why couldn't the kid stay a kid forever?! (Sob.)
Dream Letter-Tim Buckley for one.
Just simple lines
Texas Girl at the Funeral of Her Father
by Randy Newman
Sao Paolo - Chic
Everything about this composition instrumental still gets me.
"Dust" by Fleetwood Mac and "The Coldest Days Of My Life" by the Chi-Lites
As popular as this tune was in super 70's there were certain parts of the song that made me sad. A happy, party song but at times a sad tune.
This one doesnt work as well without the context of the movie, but man when I watched it I was done for.
"Deeper understanding" by Kate Bush. "The Housatonic at Stockbridge" by Charles Ives.
I really appreciate what you're saying here; your description of the song, emotionally, is spot on.
Not that piece of music. That’s for sure.
While it doesn't make me actually cry, I find it incredibly sad in a way that actually emotionally weighs me down: Starless.
