Big Boys Don't (usually) Cry (Don Ward)

Do songs make dudes cry?


New poll in the UK lists the 10 songs most likely to make men cry...hmm...maybe #2 because of what it's about..the rest...not so much. Some of them are really, really  good songs.."Hallelujah" is amazing..but cry?...What do you think? 

10. Robbie Williams — "Angels"
9. Todd Duncan — "Unchained Melody"
8. Bruce Springsteen — "Streets Of Philadelphia"
7. Elton John — "Candle In The Wind"
6. The Verve — "The Drugs Don't Work"
5. U2 — "With Or Without You"
4. Sinead O'Connor — "Nothing Compares 2 U"
3. Leonard Cohen — "Hallelujah"
2. Eric Clapton — "Tears In Heaven"
1. R.E.M. — "Everybody Hurts"

The survey was done by a company that pays the royalties to British musicians.  They surveyed 1700 people, probably some men and some women.  Again I think most of these are pretty amazing songs...but that wasn't the question!

I think there is a lot of music that can be very emotional, but not too much of it in the rock/pop category.  Music can do that!  Try Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" or John Williams'  "Theme From Schindler's List". 

Comment with some songs or music  you think might make such a list.

We'll talk again soon.
