What Song Makes You Sad At Xmas

Recommended Posts

Christmas is a sad time of year for me for numerous reasons but one song absolutely destroys me when i hear it. Cold Wind In The Ghetto. What tune brings a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye ?

Steve

Hey Steve - forget the bad stuff -when you come up to the North East we'll make sure you have a happy time this Christmas :)

When we were very young, at Xmas my grandad used to have a drink and then start singing the little boy that santa claus forgot...it still makes me want to cry now...though he doesn't sing it any more, he's dead

Yeah that's definitely what my grandad used to do, and he even used to pretend to cry himself, the rotten old git

Must admit though its usually non soul songs that jerk the tears, eg, Kate Bush-This Womans Work will do it nearly everytime.

What a strange lot we are. I wonder what civilian lurking grazers on this site make of us lot? :(:(

Musically, thinking of Greg 'the rave' Ansty, on hearing Kurt Harris commented ... "My mum would listen to that"! :angry: :(

Men on the NS scene dance together and talk about records that make them cry! :):(

Who cares? Not I and no you. :):(

One song I just can't listen to is The Long And Winding Road by The Beatles. Makes me think of my daughter and brings everything back...too much for me to handle...so if ever it comes on the cd, radio etc it goes straight off.

I started reading this thread and thought I'd look a sad git answering this one but for my tupence worth.

Mum always loved her motown and reggae....still can't listen to Ken Boothe - everything I own without the dreaded lump in the throat.....

mud - it'll be lonely this christmas

no, seriously folks...

bruce springsteen & the e street band's romp through 'santa claus is comin' to town' still gets to me. especially the corny sleigh bell intro. I was witnessing the 'gotterdammerung' of my second big relationship. it came out xmas 85. we'd drunkenly danced to the record on xmas eve, but then in february we were no more... boo-hoo...
