    Does it strike a chord a little too close to home? :shock:

    Edit: I assume you're talking about the carry on, carry on part, but you summed it up a little vaguely ;)

    Is this the Queen song, (can't be the original thing) ? Any youtube link ?

    I am a quite a crybaby when it comes to music, but i don't recall the BR ever giving my lachrymals (?) any exercise.

    Ok maybe not every time, or at all really it's just quite possibly the greatest song to blast and sing at the top of your lungs whilst stuck in traffic (well maybe Don't Stop Me Now comes close) :).

    Really all of you who don't at least shed a tear are lacking souls -- but most likely lying.

    are you serious? bohemian rhapsody isn't even a sad song... I don't cry when I hear sad songs either but, i honestly don't see any reason to cry for bohemian rhapsody

    what does your signature mean?

    No, I'm a man, and men don't cry about such fickle things like music. Men should only cry when either

    -their dog dies
    -their child dies
    -their mom dies

    If you cry for anything else, then you're welcome to go hang yourself

    Be a real man and supress your emotions! On another note, no I don't really cry when listening to music nor was I a real fan of Queen, always thought of them as overhyped to the max, sure they had a good song or two but like soulja boy or ACDC, sucked when it came to well...everything else

    Don't listen to him wyutani. Cry. Let it out. Use the sleeve of the woman standing next to you to dry those tears. It is better to express your emotions and free yourself than to keep crap bottled up (because eventually you will burst like a soda can after vigorous shaking).

    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.

    *sigh* I was hoping someone would make the connection. But I was just making a reference to a poster that was really pro MAN on a thread concerning fed crying. my first post on this thread was actually almost word for word on what he said about the subject. canadianchic, I thought for sure you'd appreciate the humour, I recall you being really vocal against the guy on that thread

    Uggh! I do appreciate the humour and figured you knew I was kidding as well. Which thread? I am vocal against many guys here. Sorry for the delayed brain activity on this one. :oops:

    No I am not being serious. I do admit that I occasionally cry when singing/hearing Blue Moon for different reasons.

    Someone else posted this in another thread, and there was a big fight over it. Was it you ??? I thought it was someone else.

    Definately no, I was one of the many that gave the guy a ton of flak for the comment.

    I normally dont listen to classic rock but queen does it for me. I really enjoy their sound. Its a shame Freddie Mercury died because he was a great musician.

    What about if:

    their cat dies? their sibling dies? their dad dies? their grandparent dies? their uncle/aunt dies? their cousin dies? any relative or pet of theirs dies?

    if they didn't cry for any of these, then they should go hang themselves

    I recall crying for three hours straight after watching the 1994 Sean Bean version of Black Beauty. I went to my grandparents' and my grampa wanted to take me to the hospital because he thought there was something seriously wrong with me. I couldn't even speak during that episode.

    BBQ..Beatles, Beach Boys, Queen. Best pre-80's bands for me. Lennon and Mercury possibly the best of all time.

    I like a wide variety of music from many parts of the world, but sorry, Queen would never occur to me if i had to draw up a list.

    I also listen to music most of the day (often keeping on something even while napping), so i don't understand how i don't like music. (btw, i have a classical station on as we speak).

    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...

    Same. The only stuff from the 70's I like was what I heard my parents listening to. I am not embarassed to say I'm an eighties girl.

    i have no problems at getting emotional with some music

    i get (not to the point of droppping tears or anything) when i listen to for example :

    Simphony Nºr 3 - Henryk Gorecki
    Fallin Grace - Al di Meola
    Bachelorette - Bjork
    Halleluja - Jeff Buckley's version

    but Breaker.????.. Queen???? really?

    Yes I cry when I hear that song because it's so bloody awful.

    We had joy, we had fun
    We flicked bogies at the sun
    But the sun was too hot
    And the bogies turned to snot.

    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...
