  • Have you ever been touched deeply by a beautiful song into tears?

    I am pretty emotional guy and about music I am pretty much always so critical that I want songs to be able to bring me some feelings... not generally anything radical but something very "humane" and honest music, but that's pretty rare in these days to find such a songs. Everyone seems to be making music only for masses... music for radio and for parties or make terrible heavy music and screaming vocals or just "heavy rock music". XD

    So... if you ever had such a weird moment where you actually were really touched by some song or as in worst case, even cried because of the song... just add it here, just the name of song and artist will be fine but youtube video or sound example would be even better.

    My own terrible/wonderful experience:

    Artist: Popol Vuh
    Song: Aguirre I (the first part of the song)
    Year: 1972

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oh8yDDCrWQ&fmt=18

    I have to be honest and it's hard... but at the very first time, this song made me into tears!!! Soundtrack. Electronic music from 1972!!!! Instruments are unknown but the choir is from ultra rare "choir-organ" keyboard which was basically similar to mellotron but much bigger but that's all I know and no-one have ever seen it. The choir sound is just so extremely beautiful and very stunning!



    Another one:

    Artist: Vangelis
    Song: The other side of Antarctica
    Year: 1983

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxqaxAKI930&fmt=18

    Soundtrack again. I can admit that this song strikes me more than usual mostly because I have seen the original movie so I know the meaning and emotions behind the song. The movie was incredibly difficult to watch... and now after movie, this song brings me almost tears every single time I hear it! It's so powerful and very sad.
    <div class="signaturecontainer">&quot;I'm totally opposed to all these expensive bull**************** computers (sequencers). They can do whatever you want but not in the time you want. People have lost the essence of time. One said to me: 'With this new computer I can create something in one or two minutes'. This is an eternity. I can do that in a split second. But the split second doesn't come into account because the previous computer could do it in 10 minutes - so for them, 10 minutes to two minutes is really great progress!&quot; - <b>Vangelis</b></div>

      the video for johnny cash covering hurt got me pretty good.. especially the lyric everyone i know goes anay in the end.. and the video shows his wife.. pretty powerful stuff.

      i used to love the nin version of the song.. cash really took it to the next level though.. he makes the nin version sound like the cover. awesome.

              Goldfrapp - "Utopia" from their first album (Felt Mountain) moved me very much the first time I heard it

              Alison's voice, the mellotron choirs, the morricone-style harpsichord, the electronic sounds, the melody, the string arrangement... I love everything about this song

                        I agree with you 100% that the Mellotron choirs are simply magical.... they really can move a person's feelings. I understand you very well... Popol Vuh, great band, I used to have a record of them and used to listen to it at night, every night, but I can't remember the title of it... during that period I also listened to a lot of Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Eno ambient albums, ELP, Joy Division, and the best of all them imho was an album by Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock "Music For Paradise", I really want to get that on CD
                        Also, I had a cool album by an italian dude called "Baffo Banfi" lots of Mellotron

                          Man in black - Johnny Cash



                          "Man In Black"

                          Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
                          Why you never see bright colors on my back,
                          And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
                          Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

                          I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
                          Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
                          I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
                          But is there because he's a victim of the times.

                          I wear the black for those who never read,
                          Or listened to the words that Jesus said,
                          About the road to happiness through love and charity,
                          Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me.

                          Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose,
                          In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes,
                          But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
                          Up front there ought 'a be a Man In Black.

                          I wear it for the sick and lonely old,
                          For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold,
                          I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been,
                          Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.

                          And, I wear it for the thousands who have died,
                          Believen' that the Lord was on their side,
                          I wear it for another hundred thousand who have died,
                          Believen' that we all were on their side.

                          Well, there's things that never will be right I know,
                          And things need changin' everywhere you go,
                          But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right,
                          You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

                          Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
                          And tell the world that everything's OK,
                          But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
                          'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black.

                          ____________________________________________

                          Is it OK to admit that it still moves me to tears?
