I was downloading songs on my IPOD and there were a few on there that made me cry. There was one my boyfriend sent to me that made me cry cuz it was so sweet! That was the first time I can remember crying over a song and it wasn't for a sad reason. What about you...Do songs make you cry????

Wow, I was crying cuz I downloaded a few songs, we call, "Mommy songs" too. These are the songs that remind me of my mom too... When I start missing her, I wanted to have the songs there to listen to. You must have been reading my mind!!! My moms name is Jackie, so I found, Jackie Blue. Then I added, you and me against the world. It's a Helen Reddy song. My mom sang that to me when I was little. And I added a song from Escape club called I'll be there. You and I have great minds I guess cuz I've heard it said, great minds think alike!!!!LOL.

Oh yeah. More so when I'm upset or depressed about something. That's usually when i listen to sad music. I find music to be a release and it helps me write poems when I'm sad. I love listening to "emo" music. Anything with a slow beat to it pretty much makes me cry my eyes out. And then I feel better.

I tend to listen to such songs when I'm feling hat way! It helps cuz I think some songs can touch what I feel and the emotions come out and instead of bottling them up inside. It helps...very true...

I don't cry but sometimes songs make me tear up a bit...they do sometimes bring up sad memories or thoughts.

Lots of songs have made me cry. The one that comes to mind first is the song by Billy Bragg called 'Everywhere'. I've only listened to that song once to its entirety. It's a song about war. It's really depressing. Although, I love all of Billy Bragg's songs. I think everyone should check out his stuff.

There are certain songs that really make me cry...usually b/c I associate them with certain memories. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
