Over and end of the day conversation with Each yesterday, we somehow got on the topic of songs that make us cry.

Let it be said, I’m a crier. I cry at movies, commercials, season finales (omgiod — I still lose it during the last Friend’s episode when they zoom in on the picture frame on the door. TEARS.), you name it. So it’s no surprise that songs make me cry.

Usually the tears start because it reminds me of a certain time or the words feel like they could be spoken from me to a particular person. In no particular order, here are some of the biggest culprits (liked to YouTube videos so you can cry along if you are so inclined.)

Because I Knew You — Wicked Soundtrack.

This song always makes me think of some of the closest people in my life, especially my friends.

“I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…”

True story: on a recent ride home from New York I put this soundtrack on and bawled down I-84. Safe, really.

Don’t Forget to Remember Me — Carrie Underwood   

This one just reminds me of growing up, leaving home, saying goodbye.

“Before we hung up I said
‘Hey momma, don’t forget to tell my baby sister I’ll see her in the fall
And tell mee-ma that I miss her
Yeah, I should give her a call”

I actually can’t sing this song out loud without it having a teary impact.

Your Eyes — Rent Soundtrack

“I Should Tell You I Should Tell You
I Have Always Loved You
You Can See It In My Eyes”
 

 OK yes, this is purely from the show because Rodger is standing over Mimi as she’s dying and pouring his heart out. Sob.

Alright, enough of me being a huge sapface. So admit it, which songs make you cry? (PS- if you feel like delurking now’s an awesome time to do so. I’ve been loving those of you who have been introducing yourself through comments and emails lately. Hi! You rock!)

I know you all have some because I cannot possibly be the ONLY sappy one out here.

Well, maybe not the only, but definitely the biggest.
