Just because they're so well done and touch you...

I can't pick just one version...





I been warped by the rain
Driven by the snow
I'm drunk and dirty, don't ya know
And I'm still, oh, I'm still
I'm out on the road late at night
I see my pretty Alice in every headlight
Alice, Dallas Alice

I've been from Tucson to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Now I've driven the back roads
So I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine
Then you show me a sign
I'll be willin' to be movin'

Now I smuggled some smokes
And folks from Mexico
Baked by the sun
Almost every time I go to Mexico
And I'm willin'

And I've been kicked by the wind
Robbed by the sleet
Had my head stoved in
But I'm still on my feet
And I'm willin', oh, I'm willin'

And I been from Tuscon to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads
So I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine
And then you show me a sign
I'll be willin' to be movin'

"The Night And The Silent Water"

And so you left us
Jaded and gaunt, some September
Wilted with the seasons
But hidden inside the delusion
I saw you eyes, somewhere

Devoid of death
The aura poises amidst (the storm)
In solid tears I linger
A parlour glade, moonlit sorrow

Lonely resting pools
Relics of the moon-dogged lake
Whisper: "All your words are missgiven"

Am I like them?
Those who mourn and turn away
Those who would give anything
To see you again
If only for another second

Your face was, like the photograph
Painted white
We did not speak very often about it
What does it matter now?

Cloak of autumn shroud
I gaze, dim ricochet of stars
I reckon it is time for me to leave

You sleep in the light
Yet the night and the silent water
Still so dark

This song always ripped me to shreds - especially now that my father is 81 and very frail, and my son is 19 and is his own man...

No doubt man, as they say; the days go by slow, but the years go by way too fast.

Be good in general smile.gif It pays off most of the time and when it doesn't, you can simply ignore that person and it's their loss, not yours.

Oh Yes. Radiohead songs are very emotional. They bring a lot of "I don't want to live on this planet anymore" feelings. One of my favourites are Paranoid Android


This is so...damn sad:

This would have to be that song. I'm not a huge DMB fan but this has to be one of a handful of song that almost brings me to tears every time I hear it.

For a song that breaks my heart I've got to go old school. Without a doubt it is "Empty Chairs" by Don Mclean. His songwriting and imagery is so powerful and his voice layered with just the simple guitar is magical. Please have a listen.

Again, thank you all for sharing!

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one that can get a tear in his eye just from a song...

And how music can touch us in so many ways... Not just rock/metal for energy, but often, straight to the heart...

Don Mclean's music is very sentimental... I will share a classic:
