Cry Baby Cry: Music = Waterworks

2

girl-crying_lIt’s official.  Extreme Makeover: Home Edition totally takes advantage of my emotions. I might be having a perfectly good Sunday and then BAM, the show comes on and I’m crying.  So I’ve taken a personal boycott on the show. Movies like the Notebook and Marley & Me (both ugly cry) would take me out of my normal happy state and throw me for an unexpected sad and reflective loop.  This tough girl hates that!

HOWEVER, there is a caviat to this. When you go to as many concerts and shows as I do, I just want to be MOVED!  So when I bust out crying during a show,  it is a welcome and unexpected catharsis. And in some way, I feel more connected to the artist and thankful for the experience.  By nature, I don’t like to show very much weakness or vulnerability. Maybe my over-confidence is my weakness masked as strength. Sigmund Freud would say it’s my evil ego taking over my id….or that I’m into my dad or something.  But I digress…

Musicians always say their biggest high on stage is to connect with the audience members. I put together a few videos of performing artists that would shake me to the core.  These songs left me reaching for the Kleenex and wiping my eyes before anybody could see my soft spots.

Welcome to the Waterworks Hall of Fame:

Katie Herzig – “Wish You Well”

 

Tony Lucca at Smith’s Olde Bar – “So Long” (incidentally, Gareth Asher was sitting right next to me! Holy Moly!)

Greg Laswell – “High and Low” (this song not only captures the moment live, but also in the studio version, an impressive feat)

Erin McCarley – “Pitter-Pat”

The incomparable Ray LaMontagne – “Jolene”

One thing I learned is that it’s so important to have a full-range of emotions. When you’re vulnerable is when you connect the most with people.  We are all the same and we are all desperate to be understood.  Sometimes, you just need an outlet to express it….or at least be part of the expression.  To these particular artists, and hopefully, many more to come, thankyou for the good cry!

    I completely agree that you need things to move you, not only with the movies you have listed but with the topic of the blog as well. I can’t tell you how much music I listen to on a daily basis. From rock to rap, hip hop to folk, country to blues and everything in between. I notice every time I listen to music at some point or another I turn to studying the lyrics. A well writen song tends to bring me to my knees internally. I enjoy music that starts off in the unknown and takes my mental noodle for a lyrical ride. Thank you for bringing this thought to the forefront and a highlite to the true passion behind the artist.
