I'm only teasin' you Breaker. Genders aside, we all have music that pulls at us for, well, usually personal reasons. A family member, a past love, a memory associated with the song. These are my top four:

Queen had some amazing music. Much more than 2 songs. Maybe you dont enjoy listening to them but to compare them to soulja boy tells me you are about 14 and have no clue about anything.

There are dozens and dozens of emotionally powerful songs capable of eliciting tears. Dozens I tell you!

BR is an amazing song, really really really strong and great, but taking Queen as a whole, well, there ain't much else there to elevate them to supergroup status.

Silent Night, which one poster linked to, is a fantastic song. But poster, was it the song you liked, or that oddball version? If if was that version, I bet it was the violin that got you...

no, that doesn't make me cry, that song is theatricality at its best, it's like, well a night at the opera.

the queen song that gets me is The Show Must Go On. that has some real emotional clout given what Freddie was going through at the time, and his vocal performance is unreal. Love Of My Life is gorgeous too. These Are The Days Of Our Lives as well.

Queen is definitely one of the best bands ever, on my college days I was part of an experiment, putting together a rock band and a chorus group to play Quenn songs (I plays bass) and we did more than few presentations ... but No eventhough I really like BR it doesnt make me cry, however The Show Must Go on (good one FPS^^) These are the days of our lives and Innuendo (basically all the Innuendo album) are Queen songs that really touch me. Oh and Who wants to live forever...

no way i was part of something similar, a performance of Bohemian Rhapsody funnily enough, was part of the choir, wanted to play the guitar but there was one guy at school, a bandmate, who was better than me- dammit! Innuendo is an incredible album, I didn't enjoy much of their 80s stuff as much as the brilliant 70s days (though i've not delved deep into the 80s albums like the 70s ones), but towards the end they started making some sensational music again. Who Wants To Live Forever, great call, I'd been searching for the title, it was on the tip of my... ear??

you still playing the bass and rocking out?

Not for me. Wrong combination of lyrics/beat/tune/voice/loudness/tempo.

In this particular case the unmistakably male voice has less emotional impact than a softer female voice, the music is too loud so it distracts from and muffles the emotion in the voice.

As for Queen the band (and "Freddie" in particular): if Live Aid didn't sell me on the band's skills nothing would've. As for Freddie, what can I say? This true frontman without the need of backup singers (unlike Madonna who had Niles Rogers/Thompson Twins that day), without the need for flashy lighting and simply wearing jeans, a guido t-shirt and sneakers and IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, totally blew away Madonna and made the "immaterial girl" look tiny in terms of stage presence, projection, etc.....Mercury exposed Madonna (minus her normal cast of 20 dancers and stage techo) for what she is, or more accurately, what she isn't:

Speaking of unfortunate pairings -- though this one is of very different nature -- I had the pleasure of seeing Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra at Radio City Music Hall, circa 1987. Sammy played the first half the show, and was astounding. After the intermisssion, it was Frank's turn. Well, maybe he was too old, or maybe it was an off night, or maybe it was just a simple case of "Man, you do NOT want to follow Sammy Davis Jr."

Bringing it around to the thread topic, watching Sammy sing Mr. Bojangles live was the single most emotionally powerful performance I've ever seen before or since, and the tears welled for sure.

DP, did you check out my itunes thread? Not an interesting thread per se, but as a keyboard player, you might like the "Whiter Shade of pale" focus. Is there a more classic rock organ performance than that?

Both things can be true. Sometimes music makes us sad because it reminds of us past events, but sometimes it can elicit tears just from its sheer beauty or emotional quality. It need not be tied to any previous event at all.

That's the best.

is that the second half? that is some crazy music :) love it, although night at the opera is still my fave queen album, my parents played it a lot when i was a kid and the music is just fantastic, especially prophet's song->love of my life, you're my best friend, death on two legs, i'm in love with my car, 39, the guitar break in lazing on a sunday afternoon, ach i've named nearly the whole album!!

LuckyR, clearly music that brings tears (something that doesn't happen so much nowadays) resonates something inside, what i meant was i don't associate it with particular events in my life directly. i don't remember a time when the music was on, or need the lyrics to speak directly to a specific experience in my life to move me. however, it speaks to the imagination and the heart, and in that sense personal experience plays a part, this is true.

Haven't checked out the link, but I've never heard anyone who wasn't female or gay suggest Madonna was very talented.

You gotta, com'on ya only have to listen to about 20 seconds--worth it. You don't have to wait for the 2:00 mark to come around. Just slide the scroll dot out to 2:00, sit back and cringe (in in my case laugh) at her boring band....and her "school play" pipes.

Whoa Gorecki!!!! Bjork.....my fave artist ever!!! Anyways, for a powerful emotional song, here is my recommendation, Ara Batur by Sigur Ros.....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NecFN-cfwlk


(This group deserves another thread and not to be lumped by Queen)

I absolutely adore Sigur Rs (and M.U.M.)

my favourtie album of Sigur Ros is Agaetis Byrjun (???)... but recently i have been listening to "..spilum endalaust" (and consequently to ARA Batur) and Takk, wich are great albums too...

I'd love to watch/listen to this thing, but I'm on a little island off the coast of Maine at the moment with sketchy internet service, and everytime I try and watch a vid or listen to a song on "the youtube" as my mother would say, it freezes up on me. It's maddening, so I've stopped trying. But I will try and remember to do so when I return to the motherland.

Holy hell, you have Icelandic tendencies too? BTW it's mum(I think lol). I have been to Iceland twice, bumped into Bjork there and said hi, I watched Sigur Ros, mum and Bjork live in NYC (separately) and I really love their approach for music, the artistic side and not being dictated by recording companies to produce records because of deadlines. If you haven't been, I would really suggest you take a hop to Iceland and you will appreciate their music more, you will understand why. Thank you for mentioning them and it's great to hear from you about these artists.

yeah.. it's MUM, but we are in TTW and most posters are not into that kind of music and you know it would end up in confusion...

you know, there is a SR fan club here and they organize a trip to ISland every Year, and this year i was about to go. everyone says you understand the music they make even better when you go there!

i wonder why?? is one of those unexplainable things i guess no?

btw: have you seen the SR special box "in a frozen sea"
it's a thing of beauty for collectors...

We're talking about this band, right? lol

http://www.mum.is/

Anyways, no haven't had the chance to check out "in a frozen sea". The last video I bought was Heimma the special edition. I went to ISland ( I did notice that) twice both during the time they have the Iceland Airwaves, hang out with locals(if they let you in their circle), saw the Northern Lights, Blue Lagoon blah blah blah lol. Go there if you get the chance. It's a trip you will not forget. Oh if you want a great read get a copy of "waking up in Iceland".

Btw mum is touring again so I will try to catch them in Boston or NYC. I also bought an album there when I went by Apparat Organ Quartet. Did I mention you should go to Iceland? lol. Thanks for chatting. I don't have a lot of people who share my love for Icelandic culture and music.

PS Just so it's not so obvious I'm derailing this thread, No I don't cry when I hear BR lol

Boho rhapsody seems like 7 different tunes mashed together badly to me. while i can agree queen were a great act i havent listened to lots of their stuff.

for a song to make u cry, you should listen to the rain song by led zeppelin

or most smashing pumpkins tracks

One could say the same about such classics as "Every Christian Lionhearted man..." by the Bee Gees, "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys, and "Pathetique" by Luddy Beethoven.

I just remembered .. would you believe it, I cried (and not once) when i heard Tupac's Me against the world.

iirc, i was moved by the sense of loneliness I felt in the singer. It was perhaps hard to understand how people in the most advanced country in the world could be so lonely/alienated.

Also, the title itself was disturbing ... don't folks feel the presence of God and know that they are never alone, and that existence is with them not against them, not to be struggled against, but to be loved. i thought, "God, are there people who spend their entire lives _this_ way."

Tupac is so underrated, the man was a lyrical genius. Sure he did a few gansterish songs but the majority are amazing.

While listening to Thin Lizzy's still in love with you, it comes to my mind that this song is not so far behind any song that would evoke some emotions. Maybe, just because I have a soft spot with them.
