What's a song that's not really meant to be sad, but makes you sad anyway?

Asked by Aesthetic_Mess (7846 points ) November 18th, 2010

The question speaks for itself.
For me, it’s Never Gonna Be Alone
It’s supposed to be about hope and comfort and all that, but it makes me want to cry when I hear it, and I don’t know why.

Leader of the Band by Dan Fogerberg It reminds me of my dad who played a trumpet.

@chyna Leader of the Band reminds me of my father and always makes me cry!

For me, it is Izzy’s version of Over the Rainbow.

@marinelife I really like that version. Thanks for sharing.

How Great Thou Art.
We sang it at my little brothers funeral. The words stirred up all kinds of emotions from awe to anger to sorrow to surrender. I still cry when I hear it and my emotions still run the gambit.

“Fix You” by ColdPlay. It makes me think of my sons and some of the times they were down.

@Blondesjon I think that may be a sad song. It’s a beauty though. I had never heard that version. Thanks for introducing it to me.
