Day 16: A Song that Makes Me Cry

Hopefully I am not in the minority here; or, at the very least, that I'm not the only one! There are a lot of songs that make me cry now or have made me cry in the past. Maybe I'm just overly emotional, but I almost always have a handful of songs that can get me going pretty quickly. Some of those songs in the past have been Tim McGraw's "Don't Take the Girl", the Dixie Chicks "Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)", and (more recently) Lady Antebellum's "Hello World". Geez, I have a ton. (They aren't all country songs, either. Honest! These are just the ones coming to mind right now. I'm going through a country phase right now.)

There is one song that consistently gets to me, though. One song that just kills me at the very first note, every single time. Every time I hear Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" I am a puddle on the floor. I love the movie "She's Having a Baby" and I always flash to the part with the one drop of blood falling to the floor during the c-section scene. The beginning of this song drops me so quickly into that scene that I take that huge hitching breath that precedes The Ugly Cry. You know what I mean? Jason thinks this is so funny that he routinely slips the song into roadtrip CD's just to screw with me. Can you believe that? How mean is he?

How about you? Are there any songs that can bring you to tears?


A quick note on this 30 Days of Me thing. Since I don't plan to go straight through the meme, I'm skipping the "Writer's Choice" entries; my regular entries can stand in for those. Also, I already did a "Favorite Book" entry, so I fail to see the reason to write about my favorite non-fiction, fiction, and Fanfic books. (Also? I had to google Fanfic. I had no idea what that was. Therefore, I have no favorite anyway. I probably wouldn't have anyway.)

  1. It's one of my favorite movies. I would say that it is definitely a must see. It's an 80s movie, so you know it all turns out okay in the end. :)
