Songs That Make You Cry

From July 31, 2019

If you have thought about it, there’s a song that has been written about it! From love songs, to breakup songs, to happy songs, they are all out there!

If you had asked me this question when I was ‘younger’ (much younger) I would have told you ‘absolutely not’! I’ve never ever cried listening to a song. Especially working in radio. Sadly, we get a little bit numb to music at times because it’s such a huge part of our every day lives. And, unless you learn how to separate the job from the songs it can be really difficult to actually ‘listen’ to the songs. Instead, many people in the business will just ‘hear’ the songs. There’s a huge difference.

However, that all changed for me once I had children. More specifically, one of my daughters. For the last 10 years any time I hear Steven Curtis Chapman’s ‘Cinderella’ I will tear up. Every… single… time. The same goes for Finding Favour’s ‘Walk On By’. They both just take me to a place down the road I’m not ready to be at yet. It’s silly really, it’s just a couple of songs. But, I just can’t control the love it makes me feel for my daughter and all of my kids when I hear them. Time just goes by way too fast…

How about you? Has a song ever made you cry? If so, which one? Please let us know at
