Two for me, with the same identical reaction from me the first time I heard them while driving: I had to pull off the side of the road- I couldn't see for the tears! These two are always hard for me to get through while singing them without choking up: "Go Rest High On That Mountain," by Vince Gill, and "Remember When," by Alan Jackson.

I wished I was smarter
Wished I was stronger
I wished I loved Jesus
The way the my wife does

I wished it'd been easier
Instead of any longer
I wished I could've stood
Where you would've been proud
That won't happen now
That won't happen now

There's a whole lot of singing
That's never gonna be heard
Disappearing every day
Without so much as a word
Somehow

I think I broke the wings
Off that little songbird
And she's never gonna fly
To the top of the world Now
To the top of the world

I don't have to answer
Any of these questions
Don't have no God to
Teach me no lessons

I come home in the evening
Sit in my chair
One night they called me for supper
But I never got up
I stayed right there
In my chair

There's a whole lot of singing
That's never gonna be heard
Disappearing every day
Without so much as a word
Somehow

I think I broke the wings
Off a little songbird
And she's never gonna fly
To the top of the world
Now
To the top of the world

I wished I'd had known you
Wished I had shown you
All of the things I
Was on the inside
But I'd pretend to be sleeping
When you'd come in in the morning
To whisper goodbye
Go work in the rain
I don't know why
Don't know why

Cause everyone's singing
We just wanna be heard
Disappearing every day
Without so much as a word
Somehow?

Gonna grab a hold
Of that little songbird
And take her for a ride
To the top of the world
Right now
To the top of the world

For me, two stand out: "He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones and "Back on the Chain Gang" by The Pretenders.
Which songs "really get to you"?




Bring a tear to the eye? What other jackass besides me said green onions? Boo! Haha!

Songs written specifically to tug on the emotions don't do anything for me, it feels manipulative.

What gets to me are songs where all the parts fit together, I don't know how to explain it, really. Some examples would be Glenn Campbell doing Classical Gas in front of an orchestra. A lot of the Moody Blues songs. John Denver, lots of memory there. The other day No More Tears by Ozzy came on the radio, and it got cranked. Not a lot of similarities, but there you go.

I do weird pretty good.

Too Far To Fall by Uncle Walt’s Band kinda gets to me.
It transports me to the late 70s, a certain girl, and our appreciation for each other, and Uncle Walt’s Band.
Over 40 years ago.
Yikes, I’m ancient!
