SONGS THAT MAKE YOU CRY

For those times you just need to weep uncontrollably with your headphones on. (Maybe you think you never need to do this. You are wrong.)
  1. "River" - Joni Mitchell
    I have listened to this song once without crying. Once ever.
  2. "Bad Religion" - Frank Ocean
    First heard this after a breakup. Was devastated.
  3. "Fast Car" - Tracy Chapman
    I can't explain this one. But it has some weird effect on my tear ducts.
  4. "Pretty Girl at the Airport" - The Avett Brothers
    For those of you who have ever had to say goodbye forever to a loved one at the airport.

  6. "I Am" Nathaniel Rateliff
    Before his Night Sweat band. You can hear the emotion in his voice and then you listen to the lyrics and you cry. Maybe it's just me...

  14. "Isn't She Lovely" Stevie Wonder
    Suggested by   @olivharr
  15. "100 Years" by Five for Fighting
    I usually make it til he's 99 and get some tears: "I'm 99 for a moment And dying for just another moment And I'm just dreaming Counting the ways to where you are". Then he goes back to "15, there's still time for you" and it gets even worse. :)
