This Week’s Top Five List – Songs for a Weepy Mood

What song do you put on when you feel down and need a good cry? I tend to go to old classics. Do the songs below work for you? I’m sure everyone has their own pick. Let me know what song brings on the waterworks for you.


At Number Five:

Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers 

Released back in 1971, the song became an instant hit for Withers.

The song appears on the original soundtrack album for the film When We Were Kings (1997), and in FX’s first season (2016) of the anthology limited series American Crime Story.

But my favorite is in Nottinghill starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts.


At Number Four

All by Myself by Eric Carmen

Although Celine Dion put her own stamp on this song, I still prefer Eric Carmen’s version.


At Number Three

Love Hurts by Nazareth

First recorded by the Everly Brothers in July 1960, it wasn’t until Nazareth performed the song as a power ballad that it became a hit.



At Number Two

Dancing On My Own by Calum Scott 

Still sends shivers through me.

Originally written and sang by Swedish singer Robyn, I’d never heard of it until British singer Calum Scott performed this song as part of his audition for Britain’s Got Talent in 2015. On his releasing it as a single, it quickly climbed the charts.



At Number One

Nothing Compares 2 U by Sinead O’Conner

Written by Prince, Sinead took this song to another level. Loss, pain, and longing flow through her rendition. If you’ve never seen the video, catch it here:
