Oh gosh Grace, there are so many emotional songs out there. I used to be not so open emotionally until after my sessions of chemotherapy. I cannot prove it by just how I am now, but there was definitely a change.
Into The Fire…. Bruce Springsteen— the official video will make you ask ‘Why?’ after you see it.
Dry Your Eyes… Neil Diamond
The Living Years… Mike and The Mechanics
Let It Be n Hey Jude… The Beatles
Dimming Of The Day… Bonnie Raitt
Rocky Mountain High, Cold Nights In Canada, Rhymes And Reasons, A Song For All Lovers, Flying For Me… John Denver— so many of his songs will do it.
Little Wing… Derek & The Dominoes. It reminds me of my oldest niece when she was 2-3 years old.
Fountain Of Sorrow… Jackson Browne.
So, so many more. Music is supposed to move us, emotionally, spiritually, and to make us think. But don’t forget the simple songs you sang as a child either, there to make us feel happy and maybe teach a little something too.
