Have you ever cried because a song was THAT good?

Recommended Posts

I've lost count on the Hans Zimmer praises, but I also find his music moving.

it's really too bad that every one of his soundtracks sounds very similar to everything else he's written.

Not many songs get me to the point of tears forming. Not because I don't feel the emotion the music is trying to convey, it's more along the lines that I need more than a moving song to... well, move me so much as to make me tear up. But if there are visuals to go with it, then it stands a better chance of impacting me.

As an example, the song in this video, on its own, likely wouldn't get me misty-eyed. There is certainly emotion in it, but its coupling with the animation... well, it got to me the first time I watched and listened.

Basically, any of the vocal themes from Metal Gear Solid will get me a bit misty eyed. Those games are emotional like nothing else I've ever played.

The first time I heard the other world theme in Chrono Cross.

I had been bee bopping through stuff, and then had to just stop.

When those strings let loose, a single tear rolled down.

A song has not gotten to me like that in a long while

Kaia's song from This Binary Universe. I watched the whole DVD of the music videos and basically had my brain melted by how awesome it all was, and then right and the end he goes and does this out of the blue for his daughter and you basically have no soul if you don't find this awesome.

Also Red XIII and his dad. I am defenceless to this song because of it's association to this scene, especially when the drum gets going.

Edit: lol didn't realize how old this thread was.

This happens to me ALL THE TIME actually. The newest song for it to happen with me is Chance for a Sudden Reversal from Tales of Vesperia.

I just imagine that I'm on stage playing the rhythm guitar part with Sakuraba doing his thing on his 12 keyboards. That made me cry yo.

I thought I was weird for crying at beautiful songs, but I guess I'm not the only one :) two songs that I recently listened to that made me cry were Aqua's Theme from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep and Theme of Love from the Final Fantasy: Pray album. I was literally bawling when I heard these two songs, especially Theme of Love. For me, that's probably the best version of that song.

Usually I never cry at much of anything, but my obsession with music has grown so much that crying comes naturally if a song really touches me.

No, but I did get real upset as a kid when I'd hear Bohemian Rhapsody. (I thought the first ballad-y part was really sad at the time.) I will admit that I came close when my school's orchestra played the 2nd movement of New World Symphony and I had an amazing vantage point (I was in the percussion section); that movement is still among my favorite pieces of music.
