Emotional songs (dem feels...)
Here is where you post songs that get you especially emotional. Whether it's just the music, the lyrics, or both. Doesn't have to be just sad songs either. Maybe some are inspiring? Bring out the rage?
I'm gonna start with Still Unbroken by Lynyrd Skynyrd. This is the real loner/outlaw anthem. Always gets me right at the end with "I ain't never going dooown!"
Watching From A Distance by Warning is just soul crushing. Sung by a man on the verge of tears it seems and the music itself is so dense and heavy and dreary. Song is about the deepest, most hopeless case of unrequited love. It's perfect.
Solitude by Candlemas mostly speaks for itself. The vocals are very powerful. Especially at the end.
I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys. Without embarrassing myself too much, the vocals and melody are beautiful.
Bodies Under the Falls by Panopticon starts off as this chaotic bit of discordant flutes and guitar and drums (though if you're like me, you'll hear the harmony and beauty in that). At about 4:00 minutes, it breaks down into the quaint bluegrass piece that steals my soul away to Kentucky (who I haven't seen in forever). At the 7 minute mark, the two worlds blend it's one of the most beautiful things ever.
Rill Rill by Sleigh Bells is all about the atmosphere. It hits me like a cool breeze on a very warm day (there's some poetry for the day, no homo).
Sacred Worlds by Blind Guardian.... The most impressive bit of vocal work I've heard in power metal at least, maybe all of music. If power metal turns you off, don't let it do that for this song, it's closer to being a classic power ballad with some orchestral work in there. First time I heard this song was a religious experience. No song since has replicated that first impression.
Score to a New Beginning by Fairyland. Yes, the band is fruity as fuck, but I'm a sucker for frilly harmony and soaring vocals.
Tiger! Tiger! by Slough Feg. Really speaks for itself. Especially the last minute and a half or so. It really does take me away to some far flung and lost ship in outer space. Which is, I guess, what the song is about.
Anyway, I could go on for a VERY long time and will probably post more if others do so.
