So, I've seen plenty of music threads about what your favorite song or genre is, but I'm looking for something a little different. I'd like to know if there are any songs that get you emotional and why.
It could be a song that reminds you of good times and makes you smile, something that makes you go back to a rough time you were having and gets you crying, or even a song that relates to something that you're going through now. As long as the song makes you feel a strong emotion, I'd like to know about it.
For me, a song that always gets me emotional is "In Your Room" by Halestorm:
Up until I met my girlfriend, I never had any friends, or anyone I could really trust. I only had one friend, but he was slowly drifting away from me during the last year of high school. We had been best friends since 2nd grade and those years of friendship were dissolving in front of my eyes because he found some less boring friends to be with.
So there I was, alone, when this girl came along. We started talking and a relationship developed. I had almost no social skills, was always skittish, and fumbled over my words all the time, even if I was trying to give a simple "thank you". Somehow, she saw through my nervous, scared exterior and wanted to know all about me. This was the first time I had someone to really trust and talk to in years. Here we are, two years later, happily together.
This song reminds me of how terrible I felt before she came along, and how she changed my whole personality by simply giving me someone to share myself with.
TL;DR: This song gives me happy tears.
