Examples of Tear-Reducing Songs

Ever since middle school, I have known about the emotional side of musicals. However, there was something I was blind to. I did know that musical songs could be sad, and that the emotion was common. There was something I would learn the hard way. I would learn I was 100% blind to heartbreak and 100% to just how intense emotions can get in musicals- I would learn this in just one musical: this was discovered in Les Mis. What are some examples of songs I have actually cried during- this is based off seeing it live or any way I have listened to the songs.

  1. I Dreamed a Dreamed
  2. Come to Me
  3. On My Own
  4. A Little Fall of Rain
  5. Drink With Me
  6. Bring Him Home
  7. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
  8. Rent
  9. One Song Glory
  10. I’ll Cover You (Reprise)
  11. Life Support
  12. Will I
  13. Your Eyes
  14. Sun and Moon
  15. Last Night of the World
  16. I’d Give My Life For
  17. As Long As He Needs Me
  18. For Good
  19. I’m Not That Girl
  20. Edelweiss
  21. Beauty and the Beast

As you can see, I am hit the hardest in Les Mis- in any version of that show: I Dreamed a Dream is usually the first moment I become an emotional wreck. Some of these songs actually surprised me. I am starting to have a more emotional response to more and more musicals these days- even the happy musicals are affecting me- as in even they can reduce me to tears at just one moment. For some of these songs, I am only reduced to tears seeing them live, and for others, it doesn’t matter if it is live or not- all it would take is just a listen and I would be crying.

I am a strong spiritual person who is a big fan of musicals. This blog mainly is about musicals. Every so often I talk about spirituality. Sometimes I add in movie reviews, book reviews, and about my life in general. I hope you find my blog inspiring.

      1. It doesn’t matter- it can be the musical film, it can be the 25th concert film, the stage show, or just the soundtrack: either why I am an emotional wreck

        I am hoping in October- hopefully seeing the stage show will happen. Charlotte is getting the US Tour again.
