Songs that bring tears to your eyes....

#1
Every now and then when you're feeling a bit maudlin there's nothing that sorts you out better than pretending you got a bit of grit in your eye.

Go on, let it go, have a good cry - you'll feel better afterwards.

Here are some that do it to me:

Willie McBride



Oh Very Young...
Turn the video off...

The Lark Ascending Do watch the video for this.

I've seen that countless times and it does bring 'a piece of grit' to the eye every time.

Oh, you mean those sort of tears.

"The Lark Ascending" I loved - reminded me of some of those WW2 posters in the IWM, "Your Britain - Fight For It Now". There are still parts of this country as beautiful as that, saw some of them in Wiltshire & Devon recently.
Agree with "The Soldier" - whatever happened to Harvey Andrews?
Here's a few of mine:
"I Vow To Thee My Country" - Gustav Holst, The Planets Suite.
"Nimrod" - Sir Edward Elgar.
"One Fine Day" - Puccini, Madam Butterfly. I defy anyone to go to the opera & not have this aria bring a tear to their eye.
"Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves" - Verdi, Nabucco.
"Bring The Boys Home" - Freda Payne.
"Stay With Me Till Dawn" - Judie Tzuke.

'Should I fall behind wait for me' - The Boss (Springsteen)

'Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis' - Ralph Vaughn Williams

Yes it has , buddy. Yes it has.

Next we will be picking our favorite dolls.

By the way, mine comes assembled. And with batteries. Take a peek. Now this brings tears to my eyes. Especially when I have to go to the store at 2 a.m. to get more lube.

Before or after the explosion of j.izz?

That should bring tears to anyone's eyes.
