Songs that make me cry

All Songs Considered recently had a “songs that make you weep” edition. Here are my top three at the moment.

Perhaps the greatest road trip song ever reminds me of dancing on the hardwood living room floor to my parent’s vinyl album. I think the personal nostalgia and loss of innocence cause my eyes to drop their buckets into the well of tears.

I recently discovered this Bon Iver song. I can’t figure that the lyrics are anything but flarf, but it still makes me inexplicably sad.

I remember stopping to catch my breath the first time I heard this tune.
