When was the last time the beauty of music made you cry? Yesterday I took my mom to see A Prairie Home Companion at Wolftrap in Vienna, VA. It was a perfect day. We were sitting on the lawn in the sun under an ocean blue sky with puffy cotton candy clouds, enjoying red wine and brie. One of the guests was the Metropolitan Opera’s tenor Raul Melo, who came on and sang a medley of assorted tunes. He ended with O Sole Mio and when he hit the high notes, it brought tears to my eyes – it was just so beautiful. I’m getting chills thinking about it now.

I just listened to Mark Knopfler doing 'Romeo and Juliet' and was just thinking every time I hear that song, it makes me cry, such a beautiful song about young love.

Gregg has done that to me more than once with his live rendition of "Stormy Monday" with ABB. Solo, "These Days" can get to me, too.

There are many songs that can make me cry. What comes to mind right away was an Etta James concert last summer in which she sang I'd Rather Go Blind followed by At Last - the whole audience was sobbing. An unbelievable experience.

An old Western Swing tune, "Faded Love", breaks me up every time.

Happens to me a lot.....If it's good enough. At live shows, too. The Brothers have been a "two bandanna" show.

A current song that has that effect on me is Grace Potter & The Nocturnals "Big White Gate". An older song that comes to mind for me would be Buce Sprigsteen's " I Wish I Were Blind" I love the Lead Guitar solo in this song , it strikes me as Springsteen's most emotional playing.

I think it happens when the singer puts a little bit of themselves in the song.

Johhny Cash does it for me more than any other single artist.

yes all the time........it has to be a moment when I think about it.

but what usually does it is when I hear Hot 'Lanta or Mtn Jam..........

ok I don't cry hard but tears come for sure......it is a very very emotional thing for me.....I'm tearing as I type.

it has something to do with my love of life every darn day > my transplant surgeries and personal medical history and what these two tunes evoke in playing passion.

and usually I have sunglases on so noone sees it......

I want the LAFE version of Hot 'Lanta played at my funeral at a party afterwards and my spirit will remain with my remaining friends and family until the part where Butch goes to the tymp's and then my spirit will rise into the heavens and join those ahead of me.

I have never said this to anyone before but Maryann my wife.

now you know.

Tearddrops by Daniel Lemma

There´s a car that´s waiting
Guess it´s leaving time
I belive I´ve said it all
And you paid no mind
We´ve been trough the motions
Lord knows I´ve tried
And as hard as it is for me to
walk out the door
There´s a whole world waiting outside

But it´s gonna be a slow night
Tears gon´ fall
Pour, pour, pour down your
cheeks and wet your bed
you´ll be sorry babe
You´ll be listening to the clocks tick
And wondering if
Time, time time gonna heal
the wounds in your heart
It´s a dried-up well
and all you got is
Teardrops over me
Teradrops over me

Told me you knew me
You just made me feel lost
You know, love don´t cut no deals honey
You can´t run from the cost
I know I´ve stayed to long
I really tried to adapt
Still I find myself down a dead-end road
Tonight´s where I break the trap

I´m gonna close this door behind me
And that car´s gonna take me away
If there´s a lesson to learn in all of this
we´ll figure it out some day

I saw Ray Charles live twice late in his life. He got me crying with some slow blues both times.

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.

When I hear The Dead do Stella Blue from 3/95 at The Spectrum, my last Dead show, a lot of long time Dead fans were dissapointed w/ the Dead and Jerry in particular, sayin all The Dead do is musiccally punch a time clock, Jerry's getting lame,etc., bla , bla bla. But when Jerry did his solo in Stella Blue it was like he overheard the negative comments and played his a$$ off, the solo builds and builds, and it's very moving. This particular Stella Blue always brings a tear to my eye.

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 .

Barney Fife ... the episode when he was up for lead solo
tenor in the church choir. He had convinced himself that
he was a shoe-in ... but he got beat out by Gomer. Tears
come to my eyes everytime I hear Barney sing.
By the way .. I just saw Jim Nabors sing at Indy 500 ... have
seen him before. Is he an Indianian ... errr ... from Indiana?

No, not the music itself. But certain songs can transport me back to some very emotional times and memories. Those thoughts have at times brought a tear to my eye.
