Top 5 Songs That Can Make A Grown Man Cry

Sean Tisdale of Lexington, Kentucky submitted his Top 5 Songs That Can Make A Grown Man Cry. His list included songs by Led Zeppelin, George Harrison, The Rolling Stones and two from Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Tuesday's Gone

About this song Sean says, “Play this song after a night out with your buddies and you’ll all stop whatever you are doing and take a listen. For me the tears come when Billy Powell belts out his piano solo. For others the realization of life being gone with the wind brings about a sense of sadness and empowerment at the same time.”

Led Zepplin: Stairway To Heaven

Sean chose this song because, “The solo alone in this song is enough to make any grown man cry. It infuses your soul with emotion. Are you happy? Are you sad? Are you angry? When listening to this track you are somehow feeling all of the above and then some and can’t help but shed a couple tears.”

The Rolling Stones: Wild Horses

I love what Sean said about Wild Horses, “I have no idea what it is about this tune, but when it comes on, personally, I feel a sense of self reflection come over me. I have a feeling it’s the same way for most people as every time I’ve heard it played everyone in the room seems to be involved in their own emotions.”

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Freebird

Freebird made Sean's Top 5 because, “This song stops everyone in their tracks when it’s played. You can’t help but be moved by this song and yes I’ve cried multiple times while listening to it.”
