johnny cash-
do you know why he always wore black?

his background is amazing, the utter and complete poverty of his childhood, how he mis-handled his stardom to be lost unto an abyss of excessive drug abuse, how his wife and his love of her was his saving grace, and how he came out of all of that with a reverance and humility that few 'stars' have achieved.....

i guess, in a way, it's similar to knowing every facet of Moz. the more you know of the man, the more context you have to appreciate his works and what they mean and what they might mean.

perhaps it was fate that i wasn't on MSN with you during those discussions, elko. i got a stubborn streak in me as wide as the atlantic, and i would never have forsaken johnny.


regardless, any country star in his 70's who saw it wise to cover beck or NIN takes the cake in my book.
he's too many songs that make me cry to list.

The Man Comes Around. God I love that song.
Names, secret names. But never in my favour.

elko
The Last Letter - The Field Mice
I've never heard of it I'm intrigued, I'll have to see if I can find it now, thanks.

love

Grim

P.s. oh have to agree to many of the crying choices & I'd add Brenda Lee's version of 'All Alone Am I'.

P.p.s. chicken
it's late now so I've no music on but that picture alone is upsetting, gawd knows what I'd be like if I had music on!

Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve. I always imagine the end scenes from Cruel Intentions (which made me cry) and in turn the song makes me cry.

^ That's a good one.

Lately I can't stop playing B&S's 'I'm Waking Up to Us'. The swirling strings! That's all it takes to get me choked up.

excellent choice, it doesn't actually make me cry but it does make the hairs on the back of neck stand on edge.

love

Really? I actually find this song kinda uplifting. But then again, I haven't seen Cruel Intentions and don't associate it with anything in particular.

The verve were a really good band, still are. 'I know its over' seems to be a populer choice with everyone. but suffer little children gets me the worst, i can remember the first time i heard that on 'the smiths' vinyl.....very moving!!
