I cry to music all the time. I don't boo-hoo cry, just let some tears run down my face....

Susan Tedeschi - "Don't Think Twice"
The ABB playing "Layla"
Etta James singing "Sugar on the Floor"


Where is that crying smiley??

for me sometimes vocalist's can but most of the time it is the guitar players in certain songs just the soulfull expression of their playing ,Duanes playing could do it so can Jack Pearson,Carlos Santana,Mark Knopler..it is the melodic songs...

The first time I heard Duane's closing solo on Mountain Jam on EAP was very moving to me, and still is today. Probably the most soulful playing I've ever heard, and the one thing that more than anything got me interested in playing and expressing myself musically.


Its something very special , ain't it ? I'm glad I got it at such a young age. I guess the narrower my mind got about who I listened to, the broader it got .
I hope.

The Duane solo in Mtn. Jam from EAP does stir up some emotions of joy and happiness. Years ago I had been working out of town, Augusta, Ga., and after a bad week as I got close to home that part of the song came up. I started crying like a baby, it was if Duane was singing me back home. I had really been missing my wife and daughter. This song has held a different meaning ever since.

2003 in Charlotte when the boys went into Layla I thought I was going to explode, laughter, tears, excitement just about every emotion because all I could think of was brother Duane.

Now for some odd reason I get stirred up listening to Blue Sky. It has to do something with the happiness in the song.

I can think of 2 times when I teared up at shows:
JFD 2007- Jack Pearson opened with Little Martha.
ABB Toronto 2003 Layla.

Tears of joy....

Many of Lucinda Williams' songs get me, as does many Neil Young songs.
If I listen to the"Prairie Wind" disc , it can be quite embarrasing.
Also, Dylan's "Blood On The Tracks"; that is probably the ultimate for me.

While I am moved by live music, sometimes to light tears of joy, lyrics will really get to my heart and the flood gates will open. I can't sing along to "Will the Circle Be Unbroken?" or the country song, "The Baby" by Blake Shelton. The lyrical content is very personal to me. Just typing this post is making me misty eyed.

No doubt it does ..
The two instinces that come to mind are

ABB 3/13/06 Filmore "Re-creation" - No doubt in my mind that Duane was there.

And now whenever Ringo Starr plays 'Photograph", there are images of John and George on the video screen. I just dont ( cant) look at them.

Dave I can understand that. Since my dear grandmother passed away last year I can hardly listen to Gregg's version. She was for all intents and purpose my mother.

Circle Be Unbroken is hard for me

Sarah Mclachlan does an Angel song

Neil Young, Sugar Mountain

God forbid I ever hear Clapton do Tears In Heaven

Having two children in heaven, I actually dread concert moments like these..... I want to crawl under my seat................ I prefer control of these moments and music can have the power to render you powerless......... people look.......... what is wrong with him.......... I hope they never know themselves.......

so I prefer down and dirty blues about mean women

Neil Youngs Four Strong Winds does it to me every time.

Just listening to I Know You Rider from the most recent Phil and Friends run at the Warfield got to me because of the sheer intensity of the playing.


Neil's song Harvest Moon almost gets me there cause I think its so damn carefree and romantic pretty.

I sometimes get misty when I hear a violin tune Thais Opera Meditation,,,,man thats pretty .


Those songs both do it for me! If you haven't seen his movie (Heart of Gold) I insist that you see it! When they all get on stage and play Four Strong Winds it gets me everytime. That version is so much better than Ian Tyson's (sorry Ian) and even Neil's studio version...IMO.

Also, a whole lot of the music Lynyrd Skynyrd these days is playing makes me want to cry. It makes me think Ronnie and Allen are turning over and over in their graves. Johnny can't sing at all and the band simply sucks. If I was the crying type I could cry over what has become of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Dave on Saturday night this year(early Sunday morning) at Springfest in Suwannee Randy Judy the founder of Magnolia music came out with the Lee Boys and sang "Will the circle be unbroken" at about 1:00 am.

The whole 2,000 0f us sang it. It was a moment I will never forget. Yes I cried as he said let our circle of friends never be broken.

It was a truely spiitual moment.

Cried my eyes out on Saturday watching the ABB Duane/Berry tribute dvd that pixielf so graciously sent me. Between the great music and the shots of the original band, so young, so beautiful, so talented...I was a wreck.

First of all I'm with Hop and others. It's the music that often moves me and not the lyrics. However, here is something, that might just bring a tear to your eye. Many of you have already seen it but it's worth watching again.

Jesse, I just remembered...I actualkly DID make it through WTCBU at Wanee this year...Lefty Collins and Tony Tyler were playing it at Helen's after the Prayer Circle and I was singing harmony. Any other time...especially the Gregg Allman Tour version...I ain't got it.
