The Egg: Thanks for the additional videos. I'm crying right now. Although it might be eye strain.

Paul: Thanks for the concert report. 10cc were special.

D.A.N.: Thanks for your vote. I completely forgot "The Warmth of the Sun" ("I cried when she said, I don't feel the same way") and nobody else has posted it.

This site doesn't go all the way back to Season 3, Week 2, so I can't tell what the theme was that week. Technically, we're doing "crying", not sadness or loss. Although so far there have been very few tears of joy. 


Jay and the Americans, "She Cried" (bonnie: the Shangri-Las later did this as "He Cried")


Michael Andrews and Gary Jules, "Mad World" ("Their tears are filling up their glasses")

Since Spinal Tap has been brought up, I figured it was worth noting that the 2003 movie A Might Wind, featured a reunion.........sort of... as The Folksman



Speaking of that movie, many a tear was shed during this moving song

And the hits just keep on comin'! Thanks for the additional input everyone. We're on page 8 with 11 voters and almost a total lack of suspense so far.

Another burst of AM radio nostalgia: More music, more music, more music!

Buddy Holly, "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" ("You left me here so I could sit and cry")


Marshall Crenshaw playing Buddy Holly in La Bamba, "Crying, Waiting, Hoping"


Pink Floyd, "Crying Song"


Arctic Monkeys, "Crying Lightning"


Bob Dylan, "It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" ("You discover that you'd just be one more person crying")

There are two songs from A Mighty Wind that get to me - 'A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow', beautifully sung by Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara, and the closer, 'A Mighty Wind'. 



But my favourite song in the movie is the New Main Street Singers version of 'Never Did No Wanderin''. 



Such a fun movie.

Del Shannon was the one, as documented, kids, by "Paperback Writer," who pointed out that George's new song for the Beatles, "My Sweet Lord" ripped off "She's so Fine" by the Chiffons.  George became enraged, that some runaway pop guy would not only fail to acknowledge his great accomplishment of writing the first rock song about our lord and savior Jesus Christ, but then dare to accuse him of breaking one of his father's commandments--thou shalt not steal!

anyway...I thought of two Del Shannon songs, one he wrote and Peter & Gordon made a big hit: "I Go to Pieces" and the other he sang, that Sonny Bono & Jack N. wrote, called "Needles & Pins."  The latter was recorded by Jackie DeShannon, Del Shannon, The Seachers, Cher, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Willie Deville, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, The Turtles, and The Ramones.  Petulia Clark sang it in French, even.

have a very nice weekend.  Since a Dallas Cowboy was suspended, they are such doggone law breakers, that's for sure, have a cold one on me!

Hi John B: "I Go To Pieces" appeared back on page 6. Let's not forget "Runaway" ("Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain") and "Hats Off To Larry" ("Now it's your turn to cry, cry, cry"). And others.

Here's the Searchers, "Needles and Pins" 



And for us fans of the Roches:

"Steady with the Maestro" ("Her face was all flushed and filled with tears")


"I Love My Mom" ("You make me cry")



Plus:  Petula Clark, "La Nuit N'en Finit Plus"

I'm enjoying these great big discussions this week.  [smile]


GOLD - TBB.  No surprises, because it's the boys, and it's smooth and soothing and utterly beautiful.  Although this is a very cheesy clip, I love watching it;
sooo Four Freshmen!  *See excellent example below*.

SILVER - Ben E King.  A close second.  Who wouldn't appreciate the message of this song? It's a small shame that I always relate this song to the movie from 1986, even though it's a brilliant movie.  Lucky they didn't use it for E.T or Gremlins or some such ...

BRONZE - Dionne Warwick.  Just like the first two songs, the strong vocals drive the whole thing.   I wondered this week how this song would have fared up against this one instead of Elvis;


TIN - Sorry about this, Elvis.  Not my favourite Elvis number. Too many "wala-wala-ohms" things going on for my liking.  (On the other hand, this is one of my favourite Elvis numbers;
)  

More tears.

"Do You Want Crying",  Katrina and the Waves.



"Cry Myself to Sleep",  The Four Freshmen.



"Cry Like a Rainy Day", Etta James.



"Teardrop",  Massive Attack.




Thanks, Larry.

You're welcome, bonnie. Thanks for your votes & musical contributions. Your Etta James song was on my list.

Two dreamy songs from Gem Club

"Hypericum" ("I saw you then, So clearly for the first time, Crying")


"Idea for Strings" ("In the wake of all these tears, there will be no one")



Solomon Burke, "Cry To Me"

Very true, John. It happened backstage during the first Ed Sullivan appearance. 

Del stood in as Beatles lead guitarist during the earlier run-through when George was bed-ridden with a temperature. 

And speaking of Sonny Bono, some may not remember but he and John Lennon were, of course, very close.

The friendship started shortly after John and Yoko had begun treatment with psychologist Dr Arthur Janov, creator of the Primal Scream therapy.

As Lennon told the doctor on his second visit, it was difficult for John to scream by 1970. He’d already conquered the world and his every desire was catered to by a loving wife and a staff of twenty.

Janov told Lennon he needed something that would make him scream.

Lennon found it that very night, completely by accident. While changing stations on his hotel TV set he stopped at the Merv Griffin Show. Sonny & Cher were on the screen, Cher singing her heart out, Sonny remaining silent and stone-faced behind her.

Then something strange happened.

Cher went silent and Sonny began singing solo. Lennon instinctively covered his ears but it was too late. All of a sudden, to both Yoko’s and his own surprise, John began screaming louder and harder than at any time since he sang ‘Money’ in Hamburg nearly ten years earlier.

Yoko was horrified. So was Lennon, in fact, until he realised it was only his peculiar reaction to Sonny’s voice.

John was overjoyed. So much so that John made contact with Sonny & Cher and a friendship ensued.

In fact, the couples became inseparable and joined forces as a band – John & Yoko doing a double act with Sonny & Cher.

The one misgiving that John had about the project was Sonny’s voice – he was afraid it might start him screaming uncontrollably in the middle of a concert.

Such fears were laid to rest at a rehearsal prior to their first show.

Lennon learned that Sonny’s singing only affected him when Sonny sang unaccompanied. When he sang with Cher, he had no effect on Lennon whatsoever.

Sonny found this information fascinating, and promised never to sing unaccompanied by Cher unless Lennon specifically requested it. (Just a few bars of ‘Laugh At Me’ were enough to keep Lennon screaming until he was hoarse and blue in the face.)

After three weeks of rehearsal, they nervously waited backstage at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens awaiting the announcement that for them would culminate three weeks of intense preparation: “Ladies and gentlemen! The group you’ve all been waiting for – The Plastic Bono Band!”

("When I get to the city, my  tears will all be dried, my eyes will look so pretty, no one's gonna know I cried")


Sonny & Cher - Bang Bang
("Now he's gone I don't know why, 'til this day sometimes I cry")

Only my favorite song of all time...
"A choke of grief, heart hardened I, beyond belief a broken man too tough to cry."


"And then I'm not happy til I make her break down and cry."


"We both know that you've been making her cry."


"I never thought a guy could cry til you made it with another guy."


"Break my heart, I want to go and cry."
