Lee Ann Womack's I HOPE YOU DANCE works for me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV-Z1YwaOiw&ob=av2e

as one of this world's many quiet people who have a hard time making a firm decision to wholeheartedly embrace the simple joys of life, this song gives me the permission I never asked for. I think an awful lot of people identify with the message in this song. And commercially speaking, strong emotional identification is the home run that most song writers never manage to hit.




1st of all I also love this song. It was played at a younger cousin's funeral a few years ago as it was her favorite song, well since then I can never get through it on a performance. In fact I just gave up even trying to perform this song again, now I just listen.

Also while they are many that get me emotionaly like Lee Greenwood's God Bless The USA, Wind Beneath My Wings, Trace Atkins' You Gonna Miss This and his latest, She Thinks We're Just Fishing to name a few but this is my favorite by Ray Charles America The Beautiful.

I am sure many more will come to mind as, well because music just does that doesn's it.

Later,

Ya got good taste, Danny C.

BTW -- the Hammnd organ part on the original classic recording of Ray's America was played by none other than the late great, "fifth Beatle" -- Billy Preston -- when he was still yet a kid, no less. Somewhere around the age of 12 or so, and playin' a recording date with Ray Charles...

While driving today the song THE LIVING YEARS by Mike and the Mechanics played on the radio.

That's another one that works for me. It speaks of the generational roadblocks to communication, a topic almost everybody can identify with on some level.

so...
what's the common denominator in songs that successfully appeal to the emotions?

I'll add another . . . although it was mentioned above Mr. Bojangles has a very warm spot in my heart as the tune describes Issac "Pork Chops" Mason, an old New Orleans street dancer to a tee. I simply loved backing his act on a couple of occassions when the opportunity presented itself. And with all do respect to Mr. Robinson Pork Chops will always be my Mr. Bojangles. Here he is on stage at the Famous Door on Bourbon Street with Sharky's band back in the 50's. Issac Pork Chops Mason

WOW! Twelve years old and playing a gig with Ray Charles! I can only imagine what must have been going on in that kid's head.

I don't have time to read through this whole post now, but there are several songs that emotionally move me.

One that always brings 'Happy Tears' would be Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's 'Dance Little Jean.'

What a wonderful song, and what a wonderful story.

And yes, even just thinking about it makes my eyes blurry.
