What one or two songs or musical compositions affect you deeply emotionally? I don't mean, "its our song" or you like it but that on some level it had a real emotional affect (positive or negative).

Two for me stand out: Mozart's Requium and "The Great Velario (sic)" by Richard and Linda Thompson. Not my favorite songs but they affect me deeply everytime I hear them.

Of course I doubt Richard Thompson is played much of anywhere.

Richard Thompson is played RIGHT HERE, fo sho.

I pretty much weep everytime I hear "Champaign Supernova" by Oasis or "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and G-Funk. The former because it reminds me of my lost youth; the latter because Simon finally cuts loose and melts the world with his incredible voice.

No matter how shitty my day, if RASPBERRY BERET by Prince and the Revolution comes on, I am in a happy mood.

One song that always makes me sad is WISH YOU WERE HERE by Pink Floyd.

"Pretty Good Year" - Tori Amos. This song makes me emotional every time I hear it.

"Sullivan Street" - Counting Crows. Something about that song just sounds so desperate and longing that it hurts when I listen to it.

"Waiting for a Superman" - Flaming Lips. It's so moving and hoping yet somehow despairing at the same time that I get unsettled and moved.

"Swimming/Medicine" - Brenda Weiler. This song can pick up no matter what's going on. Something in the sound of it just makes me smile and feel okay.

This took longer than I thought it would.

Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" from Turandot
Maozart's "Duettino - Sull'aria" from The Marriage of Figaro
Del Amitri, "Tell Her"

And the absolute saddest love song of all time:

Johnny Hartman, "I Just Dropped By to Say Hello"

That Johnny Hartman song is just BRUTAL. BRUTAL I say....

Aerosmith's "Dream On" always makes me think of some fallen heroes in my life...the connection started with the "Sports images of the century" video that ESPN played on 12/31/1999 with it playing (one of the best video montages ever).

The Bob Marley Legends album usually leaves me upbeat and optomistic.

I'm going to say that I like the Johnny Cash version of this song even better. Yes, his voice is beginning to fail him, but it really chokes me up. A lot of Christmas songs do the same thing to me.

"Sadie" by Joanna Newsom. Her voice takes a little getting used to but her lyrics are incredible.

-"HEY JUDE" by the Beatles. There's history with that song.

-"THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL" by Whitney Houston. Reminds me of my childhood. I miss being a kid.

-"SOMEWHERE SOMEHOW" by Michael W. Smith & Amy Grant. It used to be an "OUR" song years ago...but it had emotional meaning since we lived a distance from each other.

-"STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO ME" by Karla Bonoff. It used to be my fiancee's and my song.

Good songs:

"LET'S NEVER STOP FALLING IN LOVE" by Pink Martini. Keeps me thinking about my girlfriend.

"YOU'RE BEGINNING TO GET TO ME" by Clay Walker. Another song that reminds me of how I feel about Angela.

Same here, my friend. Always gets to me every time I hear it.

I'm no country fan, but "Live Like You Were Dying" by Tim McGraw.

There's also a song called "40 Mile Town" by Eric Johnson and some Led Zeppelin songs from "Physical Graffiti" that remind me of returning home after visit the pre-Mrs. JJD when our relationship was of the long-distance variety.

I was under the impression that for "Bridge Over Troubled Water" it was Garfunkle who unleashed, not Simon. Simon sings on most songs so he usually 'unleashes'. Anyway, my list of songs.

Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt"- The song upon first listening has almost moved me to tears. It carries such gravity, such emotion and powerful weight that it's impossible to deny.

Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven- The way is just melodically plows along is just moving.

"Hey Ya" by OutKast- Always leaves me in a good mood.

"Bat out of Hell" by Meat Loaf- Tossing, turbulent and beautiful. This song gets me pumped before a show. It's also attached to my 'mentor' of sorts who introduced me to Meat Loaf in the first place.

I have better ones and I'll edit those in when I can think of them.

"A Picture of Me Without You" by George Jones is the saddest song ever recorded.

Also up there:
"The Grand Tour" by George Jones
"Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd

If I'm feeling anti-establishment:
"That's Entertainment" by The Jam

Off the top of my head:

"Freshmen" by The Verve Pipe.....song kinda makes me sad.

"My Happy Ending" by Avril Lavigne.....the song makes me a little sad and angry both at the same time because it reminds me of a few of my past relationships where I got totally screwed over by an old female flame. Especially when I hear this part of the song -

>It's nice to know that you were there
Thanks for acting like you cared
And making me feel like I was the only one
It's nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were through<

When I'm in a moody and pissy mood I like to listen to my Queensryche "Operation Mindcrime" and Savatage "Streets" cds.

And here are some songs that get me really pumped up and my blood going-

"Wanted Man" by Ratt
"Last In Line" by Dio
"Modern Day Cowboy" by Tesla
"Looks That Kill" by Motley Crue
"Take Hold Of The Flame" by Queensryche
"Me And My Wine", "Hit And Run", "Billys Got A Gun" by Def Leppard

I could go on and on, but you probably got the idea.
