I am invested, I want to know your experience.
  1. I have not.
  2. More questions,
  3. What song?
  4. Was it an artist you already loved? Or was it an artist you grew to love as a result of your emotional reaction to the song?
  5. What was the setting, where were you? What was your head space at the time, did that play a role in your reaction?
  6. Do you love music, or did this emotional reaction give you greater appreciation for music?
  7. Was it after the first listen? Or did it take multiple listens to fully understand the song before the emotions hit?
  8. Has it happened more than once? Do you consider yourself an 'emotional' person and that is your reasoning for your reaction? Are you more closed off, and don't understand it?
  9. Did your reaction help clarifying a moment happening in your life at the time, or was it merely a reflection?
  10. I am asking because of that one commercial where people are listening to a song and they're crying, and I'm just want to know if that's ever really happened. I know it's possible, it has to be. I personally have never experienced it, so I'm curious.
  11. You can make your own list if it gets too long to suggest it by please please let me know about it. I'm super interested in knowing your experience!!
  12. Asleep - The Smiths
    I mean, I listen to it while I'm depressed, but it never fails to make me cry. A lot of music by the smiths makes me incredibly emotional.

  13. I cried at a U2 concert. It was a combination of appreciating their talent, being aware of the personal meaning of the songs, and being part of an enthusiastic audience that was singing along.
    I am ordinarily a very emotional person. (I cried reading a list about a wedding the other day.)

  14. Sometimes songs I absolutely love are too much for me to listen too. I can't enjoy them because the emotions are too much. My first experience was Oasis, Don't Look Back in Anger. Now it's some Adele and (don't laugh) Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift 😜 No real rhyme or reason to it, but the crying makes karaoke impossible!!!

  15. I cried the first time I heard "Five Years" by David Bowie. Listening to it after his death is really hard for me.

  16. I cried after I listened to Coldplay's new song Fun and then when I re-listened to Ghost Stories with the context of Chris Martin's breakup in mind. Fun is such a bittersweet send-off.
