    Make it stop by Rise Against

    Saline the Salt Lake Queen-Rasputina
  • I cannot possibly pick just one...

    "The Baby" - Blake Shelton (my mom passed away from cancer very quickly and I feel like there are so many other things I needed to tell her, apologize for, say goodbye)

    "Lightning Crashes" - Live (I first heard this the year she passed away, thought of her as "the angel [who] closes her eyes", and burst into tears)

    "Hurt" - Christina Aguilera - While I dislike her music mostly, this song gets me every time)

    May Angels Lead You In (Hear You Me) - Jimmy Eat World (The line, "A heart so big, God wouldn't let it live", is especially a killer)

    "Fix You" - Coldplay (a song about grief and not know how to help someone through it... who wouldn't tear up at that?)

    It's probably been mentioned but I refuse to read 11 pages of comments. :-P

    System of a Down - Lonely Day (I play this song till my ears bleed when I'm on "woe is me" mode. LOL)

    This thread needs its own CD or maybe its own set of CD's.

    'Cats in the Cradle' still gets me too...

    I seriously can't listen to "All Good Things Come to An End" by Nelly Furtado. It makes me too sad and gets in my head and then I'm sad forever.

    Also, "Real Gangsta" by SPM is really sad. (It's not what it sounds like, it's about a kid who gets into gangs and such. It's very sad.)

    OK, there is this one song called "Rocky" its from the 70s I think. I don't know who sings it, but man, I haven't heard this song in a while, but it does make me cry... seriously tear up and cry. So if I have to pick ONE... that would be it.

    LOL on Milli Vanilli
