Name some songs that can make you weep
Today, Monday 7-Jan-2008, I sent a sad song to one of our members@Badminton Central.
Suddenly, I was in the mood for some sad songs... so I brought out my guitar to sing a few sad songs.
Some songs can be really touchy, such that they can make me weep......
Here are some songs that can bring tears to my eyes;
1. Auld Lang Syne (Scottish Traditional)
2. Danny Boy (Irish Traditional)
3. Greensleeves (English Traditional)
4. An American Trilogy (Elvis Presley)
5. Starry, Starry Night (Don McLean)
What are some songs that can make you weep?

One song that makes me stop whatever I'm doing and listen is Anak by Freddie Aguilar
Try as I might, I can't name even one song that can make me weep
However, I can think of quite a few singers that can make me weep

Freddie Aguilar, the Filipino Singer
I didn't know about Freddie Aguilar until now...
Searched for him and found this:
Reading the article about him, and his remorse song 'Anak', and his reunion with his father before his father passed away, brought tears of joy to my eyes too.
What a surprise to find that 'Anak' is such a common word for 'Child' throughout South East Asia...... and this I didn't know before.
I must find out more about him from my Filipino friends here in Melbourne, Australia.
Thank You, Oldhand

Auld Lang Syne always makes me cry @New Year Celebrations
A highly sensitive person, I think.
Going back to this thread, I have made a mistake mentioning sad songs. But it wasn't meant to be for sad songs only.
It was meant to be for any song that can bring tears to our eyes.
I weep with tears of Sadness, with tears of Happiness and with tears of Love, etc...... Sometimes, all mixed together... for example, when Auld Lang Syne is sung to welcome in the New Year, I will cry.

a malay song, sung by the late sudirman, called "ayah dan ibu" which translates to father and mother. a very slow song. always make me think of my parents and how there's so much more i can do for them for all their sacrifices.

In the same thought as azabaz_ipoh, there's a Chinese song called "Father's grassland, mother's river". But for all these songs, one has to understand the lyric in order to appreciate the full extent of their magical power.
