All songs have some sort of effect on you. They can put you in different moods. When I hear Derek building a solo, most of the time it makes me giddy with happiness. There have been times when he makes it sound so painful that I almost forget that Im just listening to music not actually sad. But my question is, are there any songs, because of the music or the lryics, that can almost bring you to tears? If so, list them here. Sometimes this kind of stuff is great for the soul, to bring you back to center. It doesnt have to be allman related either. Just any song that really moves you...?

He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones. Man, that tune gets me every time.

And Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlie, my daughter used to love that song and every time I hear it i think of her as a little girl.

The Band -- It Makes No Difference (the live version from Last Waltz) . . . that song b/c it's so damn sad, and incredibly good.

And, I don't know if it makes me cry, but two of the most beautiful sounds I've ever heard are (1) the slow solo right in the middle of YDLM from the Fillmore album inbetween the two "jamming" portions of the song and (2) Eric Clapton's solo (and I think it's the second solo of the song, but I cannot remember off hand) from Old Love on the 24 Nights album. Those two examples of guitar playing touch me like not much other music does.

Also there's a live version of Dire Strait's "Romeo and Juliet" with an extended sax part, that someone sent me over the years. I've have no idea what album it may be from, but it's quite a touching version of that song, too.

Many songs came to mind when I first read this post...

"Jungleland" Live in NYC by Bruce Springsteen/E Street Band... That sax solo gets me everytime.
YDLM from LAFE- Love Duane's solo
Purple Rain-Prince, You can hear the pain in his voice.
Backstreets- Bruce/E Street Band, just listen to the lyrics
Almost anything off of the Layla Album... especially "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" and "Layla". the outro piano piece is unbelievable.

Bell Bottom Blues . . . First verse, right after he sings "Bell Bottom Blues, you make me cry . . .", and right before signing "I don't wanna lose this feelin'", Clapton plays a short, little, beautiful run . . .

Great song overall, and a heart killer lyrically, but it's that one short fill that really gets me every time. It's amazing what a few notes can do. People who don't really listen to music probably wouldn't even hear that in the song. But, great ones like Eric put 'em in there, and for those who hear it . . . amazing.

Sonya Isaacs is a gospel bluegrass singer and mandolin player with the very prominant gospel bluegrass group "The Isaacs".

She is so good in fact that she scored a Nashville recording contract as a solo artist and has been trying lately to start up a solo career to go along with her family band gig.

On a solo recording a couple years ago she recorded a song called "Barefoot in the Grass"

Its about a young girl who dies from cancer.

Here are the lyrics....

quote:
Verse 1

"Mom brought us lemonade
On a Coca-Cola tray
Ice rattling in plastic glasses
We'd see who could drink the fastest
In a split second we were gone
Racing cross the fresh cut lawn
And we were running barefoot in the grass

Barefoot in the grass

Verse 2

When I was twelve I started liking boys
She was still playing with her toys
I pointed out that she was only nine
And I didn't need her tagging behind
Then I would jump on my red bicycle
I'd look back and I 'd get tickled
She was running barefoot in the grass

Barefoot in the grass

Chorus:

And it brings a smile to my face
Seeing her, no shoes in a footrace
Running as fast as she can
Waving her hands and calling out my name

Little Sister

Oh, I wonder if she knows how bad I miss her

Verse 3

I remember being so confused
When mom and daddy broke the news
I never even saw her cry
Though I could tell she was hurting inside
But, now I'm sure she's got a full head of hair
And I know that somewhere up there
She's running barefoot in the grass
Barefooot in the grass

(Repeat Chorus)

Mom brought us lemonade
On a Coca-Cola tray
Ice rattling in plastic glasses
We'd see who drink the fastest
Love to see you run
Little sister, run
Barefoot in the grass, barefoot in the grass"


The 1st time I heard it I cried like a baby. Mainly because i have a "little sister" who died from cancer. When I listened to the song the 1st time, it was totally unexpected...I had no idea what the song was about when it started...but it just tore me up.

But really, it'll probably affect anyone who hears it. We all hurt when loved ones die, and Sonya has such a beautiful way as a singer.


"D"

the first one that came to mind was 'I Shall Be Released' by Mule during the 1st set (acoustic) at the Boulder show a few years back. The first time I heard it I was driving to work at 5:30am and it got me - still does, every time.

Please Call Home hits me hard as well.

Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt"
Joe Brown singing "I'll See You In My Dreams" from The Concert For George
Here Today by Paul McCartney- a truly moving tribute to John
A really good version of Morning Dew by The Grateful Dead- when Jerry was on he could make a stone cry!


And sometimes- Little Martha. It's just so damn pretty!

Totally forgot about BBB. Love that riff your talking about. Speaking of EC, "Let It Rain" is another heartbreaker

Banks of the Deep End.

Got to leave town to see the yellow flowers bloom

It always hits me when I am outside of the city and needing to see something other than concrete and a million people.

~~~

Oh Yeah, Big White Gate too made me cry each time I heard it.
