Thread: Emotional Music

  1. #1

    Default Emotional Music

    Got this idea from Pojo's thread on movies that make you cry and I got to thinking what songs make you cry?

    For me:
    Green Day
    -Give Me Novacaine
    -Wake Me Up When September Ends
    -Last Night On Earth
    -Restless Heart Syndrome
    -21 Guns

    Thousand Foot Crutch
    -This is a call

    Tokio Hotel
    -Forgoten Children

    Sum 41
    -Handle This

    Harry Chapin
    -Cats in the Craddle

    "Dragon" - Tori Amos
    "River" - Joni Mitchell
    "How to Disappear Completely" - Radiohead

    I've only gotten teary eyed from two songs... both poppy... white flag and you could be happy.

    But the following have made me feel goose bumps

    Movie scores...

    Inama Nushif - Children of Dune soundtrack

    Dead Reckoning - Clint Mansell - Smokin' Aces

    Roslin and Adama - Bear McCreary - Battlestar Galactica Season 2

    Journey to the Line - Hans Zimmer - The Thin Red Line

    I Will Find You - Clannad - Last of the Mohicans (not the album version)

    As far as "normal" songs go...

    Sanvean - Lisa Gerrard

    The Finish Line - Snow Patrol

    Song to the Siren - This Mortal Coil

    Ghost - Indigo Girls

    Mad World - Gary Jules

    The Trick is to Keep Breathing - Garbage

    Bed of Flames, To Kill a King - Hungry Lucy

    Dear Daniel - Ruby Throat

    An individual song needs to be amazing for it to stir my emotions. Often times, my musical attention span is greater than the length of a single song. This is one of the reasons I like classical pieces or scores, because it will often take a whole album to put me through a whole emotional gamut. Some of the more notables...

    Transformers (2007) original score
    This Binary Universe, B.T.
    300 original score
    Unleashed soundtrack, by Massive Attack
    Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children original soundtrack
    Gabriel Faure's Requiem
    William Shatner's Has Been

    ... Interesting that William Shatner can be right up there with Faure, but it's true -- Shatner's album honestly makes me hit every emotion. There's actually a "song" (a poem, actually) track that I need to skip whenever I listen to it that makes me instantly cry every time.

    As for songs, there are several that I know I can turn to when I want to feel a surge of emotion.

    The theme from HBO's John Adams
    OneRepublic's "Apologize"
    Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars"
    "In a House, in a Heartbeat" from the 28 Days Later soundtrack
    Killswitch Engage's "My Last Serenade"
    Coldplay, "Yellow"
    Any of Chopin's nocturnes

    There are tons of other pieces out there that drive me to choke up, to feel triumph, or to feel like I'm soaring, but to list them all would be to bore everybody else!

    Depends on context, but Hallelujah in the west wing ep Posse Comitatus YouTube - Posse Comitatus Ending Part 1 - though you have to see the preceeding 6 eps to appreciate it... Same song in Shrek did not have the same effect...

    Had a painful breakup... part of the soundtrack to that: Me & Bobby McGee
    YouTube - janis joplin me and bobby mc gee and Wild World YouTube - Cat Stevens * Wild World 1970 live * and Purple Rain YouTube - PURPLE RAIN

    Sung by the late Mr. Buckley if I'm not mistaken. Love it.

    For me I seldom crack up to music. I feel stuff through music, but it puts me in more of a thinking mood than an emotionally out-acting one. I kind of need something visual to go along with the music for that. Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is a rare exception, but even then the video makes it so much stronger.

    There have been several albums that have really hit me hard emotionally at one time or another, the most recent of which is Neon Bible by The Arcade Fire. The sound of the album as a whole brought me very close to tears. When music is perfect, reflects what I'm feeling inside or is just full of emotion, I absolutely love it.
