This is wide open. What song makes you cry, smile, brings back very personal memories of another time or place. Doesn't have to be a breakup thing. Just anything that may bring a tear to your eye. Here are mine in not any particular order.

Celluloid Heroes - Kinks - Jaw dropping poetry in these lyrics. This song hits me on so many levels.

One Last Kiss - J. Geils Band - Yep, this one is for one of the many who got away. After a tearful breakup I heard this song on the 59th Street bridge going back to my home boro of Queens after living a dream in Manhattan for 3 years.

Wild One - Thin Lizzy - After I got divorced for the second time, I said I wasn't going to be "that guy" who's 46 years old and go after 21 year olds. Well it just happened to work out that way. I was back living in Manhattan with a chick who was First Nation (that's what they call Injuns in Canada). She was drop dead gorgeous but she wanted to breed. Not me. When she left this song reminded me so much of her.

Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie - reminds me of the time in my life I was most free. Plenty of money, plenty of friends, plenty of drugs. I used to hang out at the Ritz on 11th Street alot. I was tight with the H.A. at the door so would go there almost every night and meet new wave chicks.

Somethings Happening - I always think of my late buddy Sal when I hear this. Sal was a bartender. Young guy when he passed. One Saturday morning I walked into his bar and there was no one there at all. This guy was fucking weird. He loved Ravi Shanker. I threatened all kinds of horrible disfigurements if he put on. So in a completely empty bar, on a beautiful Saturday morning, he puts on Frampton Comes Alive. When he passed I played this song about a dozen times. RIP buddy.

Jackson Browne - Load Out / Stay; Reminds me a lot of my late father. Growing up my dad always had the radio going and it was always his music so I heard the same songs a lot. This was a song(s) that really stuck with me.


Willie and Merle - Pancho and Lefty; Reminds me of my late mother she loved this song and I heard it a bunch growing up when she was driving me somewhere in her 240z


Phil Collins - In the air tonight; I’ve always loved this song but while going thru my divorce it pretty much became my theme. So much so that if it ever came on the radio at work they would call me in my office and we would all hang out and have a moment of silence.


Queensryche - Jet City Woman; I started listening to Queensryche pretty heavy around the time I met my current wife and for the first year of our relationship I was flying almost every weekend to see her so it all kind of fit.

I wasn’t much of a brooder, but whenever I was depressed in my early 20s I listened to Stabbing Westward’s “Darkest Days” album, which has a few great songs to kill yourself to.

“The Best Is Yet to Come” by The Scorpions was our wedding song.

@Franchise: I play with a couple of guys doing old classic rock and country covers and Pancho and Lefty is one they like to play. They have been singing together for over 30 years and can sing the shit out of this one.


I don’t end up with songs as much as albums although I played “Another Tricky Day” bynthe Who off of Face Dances over and over for about 5 or 6 hours the night before I asked someone to take me to rehab. I kept trying to convince myself that “you just gotta get used to it” in my mind that I would always be a fuck up and that “this is no social crisis, just you having fun”.

Been sober for over 33 years.

Back in the day for sappy reasons "Angel Eyes" by Jeff Healey because it reminded me of a girl I was madly in love with. Looking back now it was totally stupid to get teary over that one lol.

Now..not to really bring the thread down, but everyone here knows I lost my wife last October. There are 2 songs now I can't listen to because of that. To add something first, my wife had a severe ankle break 3 years before she died and almost lost her foot, she had 3 major surgeries on it, wore an external fixator on it for 4 months at one point after a surgery (like Alex Smith has on his leg), etc. After 2 years of surgeries and hell she got the ability to walk on her own again but her foot was an inch shorter and she needed to wear a shoe with a lift and a brace on it just for protection, for the rest of her life basically. Well a few months after she passed away I was sitting around and "Freebird" came on and I had grown to just usually flip past that song over the years, it was so over played, but I listened to the words of it and thought of her and just broke down sobbing uncontrollably..I mean to the point I almost couldn't breathe..the words in that song just struck me...I heard it one more time since then and started crying again, I can't listen to it all now..

The other for many of the same reasons is "When It's Love" by Van Halen..that was sort of our song as far as Van Halen went (she and I were hardcore Hagar fans), she loved that song. I LOVE that song but every time it comes on now and I really listen to the words I start to choke up and cry and I just have to flip past it now..

"If you could read my mind" by Gordon Lightfoot, to me that is the single greatest song ever written.

"Cat's in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin. There is nothing that I enjoy in the world more than being a father to my son. The lyrics about the father never being around for his son since he was always away for work and then his son not being there for him when he gets older sadden me and are a sad commentary on the state of today's society.

"Lost Soul" by Bruce Hornsby & The Range. A powerful song about the dreadful feelings of loneliness and depression

Pieces of April - Three Dog Night
Though it dated to the early 70' sit was a favorite of mine growing up. Whe I started dating a girl named April in 1980 it instantly became her song.When she died in 1983 of leukemia 7 months pregnant with our daughter a so ng that had me smiling ear to ear now had me in tears the moment I heard it.I can mostly make it through the song now without breaking down and I play it on her birthday, April 1, as well as the day she passed which ironically was in May.

Think of Laura- Christopher Cross. Lost a friend named Lauram a friend since we were kids. This was played at her funeral.

Painted Smile. -Moody Blues. I was told by best friend years ago that this song is most definitely about me.

Abraham, Martin & John. Just a sad song.

Blasphemous Rumours- Depeche Mode  Fosters my long healed belief that God is a prick.

Shinedown’s cover of the Skynyrd classic “Simple Man” is just incredible and could make a grown man cry.

Oh boy....sometimes I think of these sings as torture and other times I relive long gone yesterdays.



Childhood/Family Times - “You Are My Sunshine” and “Melody of Love” (Bobby Vinton)


Teenager - Too many. First girlfriends. Two slow ones to put out there.  “That’s Why They Call It The Blues” (Elton John) and “Heaven” (Bryan Adams) 

Navy - “Top Gun Anthem” (not sure who did this instrumental) They played this after the end if 12 hour mid watches on island called Diego Garcia.  Reminds me of great Navy friends.

“Proud To Be An American” (Lee Greenwood) Hated this song for years.  Went in the service in 1985. This song was peaking and they cycled the shit out of us in bootcamp to this sing. Over and over.   Now, I hear it and it reminds me of my younger days.  

“I Miss You” (Klymaxx) Never even knew anything about this group, but they played this song every day it seemed when we were eating in the chow hall in bootcamp.  Not a good song while away at bootcamp.  I think it was played on purpose. 😂 

College - All based around one beautiful and still believe was my true soulmate.

“Peaceful Easy Feeling” - The Eagles 
“Cecilia” - Simon & Garfunkel
“Sundown” - Gordon Lightfoot
“Time For Me To Fly” - REO Speedwagon 



WWF Wrestling during the golden years of ‘84 and ‘85....”Modern Love” (Bowie) 

I have many more, but this will do for now.

That's a haunting song.  It's so sad it's beautiful.
