What Song Makes You Cry?


We all know why we love music. Music has survived the ages because of the ability of a song to capture our stories and their associated emotions. It is a universal language.

Certain songs reach us more than others, stirring emotions so strong we find ourselves in tears.

There are two songs that get to me in that way. One I played this morning – ‘Cats In The Craddle’ by Harry Chapin. If you’re unfamiliar with the tune, it’s a plea by a young boy for his father to spend more time with him, and the father’s promise to do so when time allows. At the song’s end, the positions are reversed, with the father asking for time with his grown son. (Geez, even typing this I’m getting misty.)

As a stay at home father, I was fortunate enough to spend a great deal of time with my son. I had a strained relationship with my step-father, and never met my real Dad, so I am unsure why this song chokes me up. (Maybe I just answered my own question.)

The second song is ‘Daddy Don’t You Walk So Fast’ by Wayne Newton. The song is about a daughter’s plea for her father not to leave his crumbling marriage. Gets me every time.

Wait a minute. Do I have father abandonment issues?  Great. This is gonna cost a fortune.

What songs leave you reaching for a tissue? Let me know in the comments.
