These songs tear me right up:
Copperline by James Taylor and Night Shift by the Commadores
Copperline is about a guy remembering what his home was like when he was a kid and then going back and finding out that everything's changed, but he also learns that the memories of your childhood can never be changed.
It's a really sweet song.Doesn't come as a surprise to me,
Doesn't touch my memory.
Night Shift is a tribute song to Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson who both died around the same time in the mid-80s. The song is about the two soul singers still playing their music somewhere in the afterlife.
Even if you're not a very religious person, the song is very inspiring. It's about how no one can really die as long as they're not forgotten and, in this case, as long as they're music is being played.You've got another home,
I know you're not alone,
On the night shift.
Anyway, I like these songs because they're sweet, but not overly sappy and they never fail to make me cry. So which songs give you the boo-hoos?
