Fred Songs that make you cry (98* d) RE: Songs that make you cry 17 Dec 99


I don't know. A few songs maudlin enough to include are rancid pop songs of the past. I think of Sonnie and Cher's "You Better Sit Down Kids" and Wayne Newton's "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast.' Not sure if temptation to cry is response to sappy words or awful performances? But the ones that really get me are those bluegrass songs about Mama: "No Mother or Dad" by Flatt and Scruggs; "Memories of Mother and Dad" by Bill Monroe; "Some Old Day" by the Country Gentlemen; "White Dove" by the Satnley Brothers...
