My “Music That Makes Me Cry” List…

"Crying" - Roy Orbison
As many of you know, we’re both music lovers. Both of us love pretty much all music (I’m ((Heather)) more of a Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison sort of music fan, while Jason is more of a Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, ZZ Top sort of music fan). But we both love and appreciate it all, old and new.
Every now and then I get into a major music listening mood. Sometimes I find a certain song that I absolutely love and I’ll spin it for a while and then get on a roll of many others. I’ll play songs over and over and over and over. I think it usually happens while I’m editing photos. I tend to be a “different type of music for my different moods” kind of person. Every now and then I’m drawn to music that makes me a little weepy. lol In a good way, of course. Here are some tunes that make my “guaranteed to make me cry” list (well, either that or get me all wrapped up in music sort of mood). What are some on your list?
