    A very old song that my mum sang to us when we were babies. I've always sung it to my 2 and it always brings a lump to my throat. Don't know the proper title or who sang it, it's from the forties I think, but the words are

    You are my sunshine
    My only sunshine
    You make me happy
    When skies are grey
    You'll never know dear
    How much I love you
    Please don't take my sunshine away

    there was a song Christina Aguilera released this time last year, at the same time as my grandad died, and part of the lyrics are 'are you looking down upon me, are you pround of who i am'. (i think thats the right lyrics) it really upset me at the time and i still cry when i hear it.

    You Are My Sunshine

    The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,
    I dreamed I held you in my arms,
    but when I woke dear, I was mistaken,
    and I hung my head and cried.

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    you make me happy when skies are gray
    you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
    please don't take my sunshine away.

    I'll always love you and make you happy
    if you will only say the same
    but if you leave me to love another
    you'll regret it all some day

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    you make me happy, when skies are gray,
    you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
    please don't take my sunshine away.

    You told me once dear you really loved me
    that no one else could come between
    but now you've left me and love another
    you have shattered all my dreams.

    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    you make me happy, when skies are gray,
    you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
    please don't take my sunshine away.

    Was Cambridge, now maintaining
    Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven. He wrote that after the death of his 4 year old son :(

    Paul McCartney's Here Today. Paul wrote this about John Lennon after John died. Lyrics so perfectly suited to Pauls relationship with John.

    Max Bruche Violin Concerto: My mother has this playing on the record player day in and out for weeks after the death of my father.

    Top tip:
    If you are feeling sad, do not listen to sad music!! For a research paper I did, I needed to make people gloomy and low spirited, before testing how they managed various tasks. One of the best way to do this, was to play them sad music.

    Always try to follow it with something cheery ;)

    I can't believe anyone replied, but it is so nice to read how music affects everyone and how it brings memories to life. I have so many memories of past loves, past heartaches, and people who aren't with me any more that are brought up by songs that its nice to read that i'm not the only one, thanks for sharing, more more more :)

    Mich Taking Back Control...!!!

    Doesn't actualy make me cry but I always have to stop what I'm doing and listen and I always, always get goose bumps when I listen to Patrick Swazeye 'She's Like the Wind'..... reminds me of someone very very special a long long time ago who things were complicated for and we couldn't be together...:( Often wonder what would have been if things had been different......

    There's a place for us
    Somewhere a place for us
    Peace and quiet and open air
    Wait for us
    Somewhere

    There's a time for us
    Some day a time for us
    Time together and time to spare
    Time to look, time to care
    Someday
    Somewhere

    We'll find a new way of living
    We'll find there's a way of forgiving
    Somewhere

    There's a place for us
    A time and place for us
    Hold my hand and we're halfway there
    Hold my hand and I'll take you there
    Somehow
    Someday
    Somewhere

    There's a place for us
    Hold my hand and we're halfway there
    Hold my hand and I'll take you there
    Somehow
    Someday
    Somewhere
    This song is sad because my step mum chose this before she died in Feb 07 , and it was sang on Xfactor ...

    Aww Sarah that's a coincidence isn't it? Whenever I mention it to people they just look at me like I'm from another planet lol! It's lovely to know someone else's mum sang it too. It's such a special song to me and my 2. :D

    Cambridge Weight Plan - Step 1
    'Through the Barricades' by Spandau Ballet.

    It was the song I had the honour of choosing for my nephew's funeral in June. It was played as his coffin was carried into the crematorium chapel.
    I chose it because it was No.1 the week he was born, November 10th 1986.
    The last two lines are the ones that especially make me cry :cry:

    Mother doesn't know where love has gone
    She says it must be youth that keeps us feeling strong
    I see it in her face that's turned to ice
    And when she smiles she shows the lines of sacrifice
    And now I know what they're saying as our sun begins to fade
    And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

    Father made my history
    He thought for what he thought would set us somehow free
    They taught me what to say in school
    I learned it off my heart but now that's torn in two
    And now I know what they're saying in the music of the parade
    And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

    Born on different sides of life
    We feel the same and feel all of this strife
    So come to me when I'm asleep
    We'll cross the lines and dance upon the streets
    And now I know what they're saying as the drums begin to fade
    And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

    Oh turn around and I'll be there
    There's a scar right through my heart but I'll bear it again
    Oh I thought we were the human race
    But we were just another borderline case
    And the stars reach down and tell us there's always one escape

    I don't know where love has gone
    And in this troubled land desperation keeps us strong
    Fridays child is full of soul
    With nothing left to lose there's everything to go
    And now I know what they're saying it's a terrible beat we made
    And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades

    And now I know what they're saying as our hearts go to their graves
    And we made our love on wasteland and through the barricades
