It’s no secret that I can get a bit emotional at times, especially at a good book, film or song. I just can’t help it! Here are 5 songs that tug on my heartstrings.
1. Slipping Through My Fingers by ABBA
I think loads of people find this song emotional and I think it’s quite clear why. The lyrics break my heart and make me want to go hug my parents.
2. Walk in the Sun by McFly
This one. I think I’ve mentioned somewhere before that this is one of my favourite songs. I discovered it around the time that I was moving and the words just spoke to me. Apart from the fact that it is a beautiful song, I could relate to the lyrics a lot and now always associate it with that time of my life. I can feel myself choking up from the first few chords. This song isn’t all sad, though. It’s got quite a hopeful tone to it. Dammit McFly messing with my emotions.
3. Sick of Losing Soulmates by Dodie Clark
I love Dodie. She’s one of my favourite YouTubers. When I watched the video of her singing this song, I could feel her pain as she sang it. A very special song written by a very special person.
4. You’ve Got a Friend by James Taylor
Again, another song that came to me at the time of my moving. And again, this one isn't just sad. In fact, I would consider it to be a happy song; a comforting song. It reminded me that I’ve got friends around me and that I wouldn’t lose touch with the friends who mattered. Very comforting for a 14-year-old who thought she’d lost everything.
5. Songbird by Fleetwood Mac
I first heard this song sung by Naya Rivera in Glee but have listened to it a lot in the past few weeks as I've become obsessed with Rumours. It's so heartbreakingly beautiful and is definitely one of my favourite songs from the album.
