What is a kid song that makes you cry?<br><br>
I just found this one and I cry every time I hear it! I <i>love</i> Sweet Honey in the Rock!<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Ftg%2Fdetail%2F-%2FB0000572SI%2Fqid%3D1122937383%2Fsr%3D1-4%2Fref%3Dsr_1_4%2F102-4599017-3989705%3Fv%3Dglance" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...89705?v=glance</a><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I cry whenever I hear The Boxer (Simon and Garfunkle), especially if I try to sing along. It's the part that starts with "In the clearing stands a boxer..." that gets me every time...<br><br>

New York State of Mind. I was born and raised in NY and had just moved home, after a few years living in VA, in August of 2001. I was pregnant that summer/fall and my favorite uncle was dying. I went into a state of emotional shock after 9/11 and the one song that broke me and led me into my healing grief was New York State of Mind. I'll be forever grateful to Billy Joel for that.<br><br>
And, even though I'm a Long Islander, I was never really that big a Billy Joel fan. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

My two favorite songs as a child were "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and "Puff, the Magic Dragon".<br><br>
Now that I have children, I <i>hate</i> "Puff, the Magic Dragon". It hits way to close too home and I tear up just thinking about the words. Like now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl">

Puff used to make me all teary eyed. Over the years, I have heard kids completely butcher the song so many times trying to sing it at kareoke (sp) that it no longer has that effect on me.<br><br>
But it really is a nice song.

Right after DD#1 was born, someone gave me a CD of Raffi's Baby Beluga. I would sit and nurse dd and listen to the song "Thanks a lot" and the tears would just stream down my face...The line about "thanks for the way I feel" was particularly apt.<br><br>
Then when I was pg with dd#2, I could never, ever get through Joni Mitchell's Circle Game without completely losing it. A bunch of us from our Quaker meeting like to get together and sing, and that song is always a particular favorite, but I officially banned it from the repertoire when I was pregnant, because I knew I would never make it through. Now it's not as bad, depending on what kind of general mood I'm in...<br><br>

I'm with Mia on Circe Game.<br><br>
But, and this is truly embarrassing, I get all weepy when I hear the theme song from Clifford's Puppy Days... <i>love makes little things grow...</i><br><br>
It's leftover from my 2nd pregnancy which co-incided with DD's Clifford obsession.

As a proud Canadian I as a rule can't stand Celine Dion, but I just bought some cds off a mama here and she included Celine Dion's new children's cd Miracle, well, the song that has "you're the reason I was born" in it throws me right over the edge--I haven't been able to listen to it again :LOL<br><br>
Theres a song by George Canyon taht is about a still birth baby from the baby's point of view, such a beautiful song--I heard it for the first time while driving and I had to pull over.
