Six Songs That Make Me Cry

Jemal Countess/Getty Images Entertainment
Music evokes such emotion in me that sometimes I can't even listen to it. Seriously. This is a problem sometimes at work. It happened just the other day at 7:30 in the morning. The song before the news was 'Let It Be' and I had to totally tune it out of my head and completely concentrate on proofing what I was about to read. I wouldn't have been able to get through the newscast otherwise. Does this ever happen to you? A lyric or a melody just reaches in and grabs you so hard that you feel it from your heart to your brain to your toes to your eyeballs? Maybe it's just me, but here are six songs that I have to be careful listening to because they might make me cry. What songs would be on your list?

Beatles – Let It Be



This full studio version features Billy Preston on keyboards.


Joe Walsh – Help Me Through the Night



This is the version he did with the Eagles for the Hell Freezes Over concerts in 1994. It appears on the DVD, but not the CD. I actually prefer it to the original 1974 album 'So What.'


Elton John – Tiny Dancer



This clip is from the movie “Almost Famous,' in a simple scene that takes place on a rock and roll tour bus after the group had a harrowing experience together.


Heart – Treat Me Well



Nancy Wilson wrote this song while she was in high school. She also plays the harmonica and the lead guitar.


Jackson Browne – Sky Blue and Black



This song is the perfect match of lyric to melody. It's melancholy and hopeful at the same time.


Paul McCartney – Maybe I’m Amazed



Rod Stewart also did a great version of this song, but McCartney wrote it, so it will always be my favorite.
