You are certainly not the only one to cry over music. And not only the first time i hear songs there are a few that will get me every time, no matter how often I hear them. “The show must go on” from Queen. “Full Circle” from Aerosmith. Beethoven’s 9th. The Johnny Cash cover of the Nine Inch Nails song “Hurt”.

It’s not as uncommon as you’d think because people don’t come out for it. I remember mentioning Beethoven always made me tear up in a group of friends. I remember getting strange looks about it too. But afterwards a friend came to talk to me privately to say he had that as well. I told him he was a wimp. Not for crying, but for not owning up to it.

Oh, one other song that always gets me I want to share, because it’s not as well known as it should be. Serj Tankian’s “Saving Us” from ‘Elect The Dead Symphony’
