Lotus Feet -- Steve Vai
Fast Car -- Tracy Chapman
Open Arms -- Journey
Just Look Up -- Joe Satriani
Hand On Heart -- Steve Vai
Two Steps Behind (Acoustic Version) -- Def Leppard
Crash Into Me -- Dave Matthews Band (Because this lady I knew had a myspace, and they put THAT song on there after she died.. :cry:)
To Where You Are -- Josh Groban
Why Can't This Be Love? -- Van Halen
Shadows of Friends -- Delusions of Grandeur

Really, the list goes on and on.. :lol: But I won't bore you! :)

Script for a Jester's tear
Splintering heart
For the Love of God
The forgotten pt II
I will remember
I remember you
Love Bytes
Alone again
Always somewhere
Kayleigh
Lavender
Sugar Mice

I'm not sure if I get strung up listening to these songs but they are very emotional (perhaps a tear or two shed when I play them) :)

I find that hysterical people use "Crash Into Me" as songs of sadness and songs for marriage etc..

The song is written about a pervert being a peeping tom.. LOL

I am a huge Dave Matthews fan by the way.. And no disrespect meant, But if people knew what it was written about it would never be used the way it gets used.

Lotus Feet x 2 love that song gives me chills.

Seek Up by Dave Matthews Band, when they do this song live at the end where Dave is just throwing every ounce of emotion into it. Its amazing

HAHA!! I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN!
"Lift up your skirt a little more.. Show your world to me.. All in a boy's dream".. WHAT THE HECK??

But now that it's been used in a sad situation, it wrings emotion outta me. :cry:

So yeah. :D

Songs don't "have" emotion.
I respectfully disagree Tommy:)

If the song is written with emotion, it HAS emotion.

The song "lime Green" I wrote for my friends daughter that died was written with intense emotion directly after the funeral. Therefore, the song HAS emotion.

And don't be a goin and gettin all scientific on me lad:lol:

BTW - Lime Green was Danielle's favorite color:(

Sure but how can one guarantee that it transcends from the writer to the listener? You can't, much as a musician can write with emotion, there's no guarantee that anybody will pick up on it. That's hardly science, it's just logic.

This may sound stupid, but have you ever heard Fiona Apple's version of the Beatles' "Across the Universe"? It can put me in tears every time, no kidding.

Fiona Apple is pretty awesome! :)

A lot of people seem to do GREAT jobs with redoing Beatles songs.. Not that I'm really a fan of A Perfect Circle, but I love how they redid Lennon's "Imagine".. Everyone's redone it, but I really like how A Perfect Circle did it.. Yup!

OMG I KNOW!!
Have you ever seen the music video to it?
I know, I know.. "Music doesn't need imagery".. But that video is desolate and hopeless and severely depresses me!! :lol: Somehow, that's why I love it even more!!!

:lol: I'm such a freak, and I don't listen to Seether either, Theppy, but .. Yeah.. That song.. I understand where you're coming from! ;)
