Have you ever heard a new song and just been moved by it?

Asked by marinelife (58003 points ) January 7th, 2011

I heard part of a song in the background of a furniture store ad, and I loved it.

I looked it up and Rhythm of Love by Plain White Ts is just so great. I cried when I listened to it.

Has that every happened to you? If so, what song? Links please.

First time that I heard this Muse song.

I felt that way about Hey There Delilah, also by the Plain White Ts. I’m actually kind of sad that it became a mainstream thing after I “discovered” them in ‘05.

marinelife's avatar

@Jude That’s a really neat piece. I had never heard of Muse before.

@Seelix I just listened to Hey There Delilah, and I really liked that song too.

These aren’t new songs, but I was extremely moved the first time I heard My Favourite Chords by the Weakerthans (just got chills again when I listened to it), and Milkman of Human Kindness by Billy Bragg. Hope you like.

I am moved every time I hear Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley and k.d. lang. Not a new song, but it gets to me.

marinelife's avatar

@chyna Both of those artists singing that song get to me every time!

All the time. Jimmy Eat World has quite a few songs that lift me up and inspire me. To name a couple: 23, Goodbye Sky Harbor, Sweetness, Dizzy.

That happened to me today. I heard a song that I’ve never heard before and I almost wanted to cry.

I was obsessed with the Greenday song ‘21 guns’ a year or so ago.
That song really moved me, and I found many renditions done by independent artists on youtube.

I can also sing to it in near perfect pitch…so, not only was I moved by it, but, I was obsessed with singing it well too!

This one got to me as do alot of her songs :)

It’s not a new song but it touches me every time I hear it This womans work I chose to share the Maxwell version but Kate Bush is the original artist.

And Pretty Wings Also performed by Maxwell.

The song that gets me the most though is Because you loved me This song me makes me think of my Mother.

Sorry none of these songs are new, but they just don’t make em like they used to.

@lucillelucillelucille Norah Jones does have a wonderful voice.

Oh yes, there is a song called Adoramus by a choir called Libera that I discovered a few years ago. I was totally floored. The entire album (called Angel Voices) is awe-inspiring. You can hear Adoramus here

And Time to Say Goodbye by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman. I first heard it at an ice skating show and started crying. You’ve probably heard it before because it’s a few years old now, but you can hear it here

And Hallelujah as sung by kd Lang at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver 2010. You can here it here

And Talk Tonight by Oasis, you can hear it here

“Life After You” by Daughtry. It wasn’t long after a [fucking stupid] suicide attempt and my husband was incredible through the entire ordeal. I was driving in the car by myself the first time I heard it and started crying so hard I had to pull over.

@marinelife & @JustJessica -She does! I saw her in concert and she was very good!:)

Vunessuh's avatar

Most recently, this song. There’s no picture, just the song. I first heard it from the Battle: Los Angeles trailer, but listening to the entire thing, it’s just beautiful and has made me cry several times.

Whenever I get down….I put on Foxy to lift me back up.

Winters's avatar

@Vunessuh it’s a pretty decent song, and it does strike a chord in me as well

rpm_pseud0name's avatar

I heard this song for the first time just a few days ago. I knew within 15 seconds that I was meant to listen to this song.

Vunessuh's avatar

@rpm_pseud0name I love that song! Thank you for sharing. :)

Whilst driving through Death Valley I heard God Bless The Broken Road by Rascal Flatts for the first time. I was so moved by it that I bought it on iTunes straight away and now, whenever I hear it, I am taken back to that moment.

Also, Caladonia by Ruth Notman.

The last song that moved me but for different reasons is a gem by Brian Bumper. The lyrics are just so insightful. And the video justs makes this experience unforgettable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH7Y1DvCB3s&feature=related

21 Guns by Green Day
Love by Matt White
Firework by Katy Perry

Seelix's avatar

Again, not a new song, but I just had my iTunes on shuffle and came across one that I forgot: Tender Comrade by Billy Bragg. Chilling.

hotgirl67's avatar

Don’t laugh but I was moved by’‘White Flag’’ when it first came out. The song is sung by Dido.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq6XQURG_MM This is a great song, loved it the first time I heard it.

sahuleka546's avatar

Yeah, two songs actually. The first time I listened to Iris by Goo Goo Dolls and Firework by Katy Perry (yes I’m her fan, deal with it) I was really moved because they have really meaningful lyrics. Hits me at home.

Buildings and Mountains by Republic Tigers really gave me chills when I first heard it. It was like I lost myself for a second..
