Songs that make me cry

Or, more accurately, songs that make me tear up in a suffusion of sublime emotion. You know how it is.

Swansea,” Joanna Newsom, from The Milk-Eyed Mender (Drag City, 2004)

And yonder, wild and blue
The wild blue yonder looms
Till we are wracked with rheum
By roads, by songs entombed…

Holocene,” Bon Iver, from Bon Iver (Jagjaguwar, 2011)

And at once I knew, I was not magnificent.

Saro,” Sam Amidon, from All Is Well (Bedroom Community, 2008)

I wish I was a poet
Could write in find hand
Would write my love a letter
One she’d long understand

Tempo di Valse,” Antonín Dvořák

[No lyrics; just beauty.]

Any songs that always make you misty?

Fall coming

October, outside my old dorm

What does fall mean to you? Here’s what I associate it with every year:

Bon Iver and Samamidon
Scarves–every day
Long novels
Tea–every day
Learning new things (and re-learning old ones)
Re-watching favorite movies
Pie (pumpkin, especially)
Blue Ridge mountains

What about you?
