Songs that emotionally affect you



Simple. Just state a song or songs that stir up some kind of emotion, happy, sad, or something else.

There are a lot of songs that do it for me, but the one that I’m listening to now that does that is Hello by Lionel Richie.


Human nature and bittersweet symphony


Letdown by Nothing,Nowhere and Houdini by Nothing,Nowhere. Others are Slow Dancing in the Dark by Joji, Everyone dies in their nightmares by XXXTentacion and Better Now by Post Malone. Wow, those are all sad songs… hmmm



um shawn mendes and ed sheeran always give me the feels

but also


Jenny by Nothing More and Hurt by Johnny Cash are two that come to mind for me


Youth by Daughter, Fight The Night by One Ok Rock, Can’t Get It Out by Tate Mcrae.


Easily anything by Christina Perri. My friend actually made a playlist of my favorite songs.


That’s Amore by Dean Martin bc wtf is better than comparing love to pizza and wine? all you millennials can relate ammirite?


Moment of Silence by Ludicious.


I’m Sorry by Joyner Lucas. It’s about suicide from the perspective of those left behind.

Perfect Places by Lorde.

Save the World by Swedish House Mafia.

We Can Run Away by Geek Boy. Listened to this hard in the seventh grade and no I can’t make it ten seconds into the song without crying. .-.

And last, King by Lauren Aquilina.


Scarborough Fair/Canticle by Simon & Garfunkel. It may just be my favorite song ever.



Ocean Avenue by Yellowcard.

Mostly the chorus.


I’m Sorry by Diamante, Amelia by Tonight Alive and Roses by Against the Current - they’re all enough to make me cry if I’m not having the best day.


Emerson, Lake, & Palmer’s version of Hoedown. In a happy way.


im gonna include some of the lyrics from the songs that really make me emotional.

controls - pham
“You’ve been living in the past though
Fucking up your body
Turning down with the Xannies
Turning up with the mollies”

deadroses - blackbear
“I know we’re not in love,
Love is vivid,
No we’re not in love,
You fall right in it for a week a month or maybe just a minute or a lifetime”

sorry - halsey
“I’ve missed your calls for months it seems
Don’t realize how mean I can be
'Cause I can sometimes treat the people
That I love like jewelry
'Cause I can change my mind each day
I didn’t mean to try you on
But I still know your birthday
And your mother’s favorite song”

fool - cavetown
“Call me on the phone at three, I talk to you while half asleep
Complaining 'bout your mother so I take you to the cemetery
Rant to me I like the sound, I like your voice, I like your mouth”

that last line really means a lot to me. my ex would post song lyrics based on her mood and she posted these when we started developing feelings for each other.

without me - halsey
“Found you when your heart was broke
I filled your cup until it overflowed
Took it so far to keep you close (Keep you close)
I was afraid to leave you on your own”

this lines also reminds me of my ex. her then partner broke up with her and we got together not long after.

lie - halsey
“Please don’t take this as a threat
I, I, I
All I’m sayin’ is if you don’t love me no more then lie, lie
Lie, Lie”

never too late - three days grace
"Even if I say
It’ll be alright
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life

pain - three days grace
“Pain without love
Pain, I can’t get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all”

betrayed - lil xan
“Xans don’t make you
Xans gon’ take you
Xans gon’ fake you
Xans gon’ betray you”

empty - olivia o’brien
"yeah I’m empty inside, I just don’t feel alive
And I don’t wanna live, but I’m too scared to die
[My body’s shaking
My head is aching
It feels like my heart is breaking
My body’s shaking
My head is aching
I can’t fix this mess I’m making

last resort - papa roach
“'Cause I’m losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I’m fine”

these arent the lyrics that really get me, but i decided not to post them because they could potentially be very triggering for some.

i wanna be your girlfriend - girl in red
“I don’t wanna be your friend I wanna be your bitch
I wanna touch you but not like this
The look in your eyes
My hand between your thighs
This can’t be real
Its all just a dream”

this is also a song that reminds me of my ex. she told me its what she listened to on repeat when she realized she had feelings for me.

again - noah cyrus
“I wanna be your lover
I don’t wanna be your friend
You don’t know what you got 'til it’s gone my dear
So tell me that you love me again”

i listened to this song when i realized i had feelings for my ex. i would listen to it on repeat. one night i fell asleep listening to it and the next morning we confessed our feelings to each other and became “official”

blame - jesse rutherford
“Is being sober hopeless?
All I ever think about is smokin’
Now I know why daddy had to keep the bottle open
Uh, I can’t blame him, no, I can’t blame him”

my ex introduced the song, but i dont think about her when i listen to it. it reminds me of who ive become and it reminds me of my father

theres so many more but i dont want this post to be too big. i’ll post more if i think of any.
