4 Songs That Made Me Cry

If you're looking for a meaningful song to possibly make you shed a few tears, here are 4 of the most emotional songs I know

4 Songs That Made Me Cry
Panic! at the Disco - Northern Downpour Music Video

I love music. I love the way that a certain song can make you feel a certain way even when you're not already feeling that emotion. I especially love being able to share music that I find especially powerful with others in the hopes that they too will love the songs just as much as I do. Here, I'm going to share a few songs that made me cry and attempt to tell you why you should listen to them too.

1. Hammers and Strings [A Lullaby] - Jack's Mannequin

This song is about a girl with depression who talks to the singer of the song who she hasn't talked to in a while and is asking for him to write a song that has meaning and so he writes about her depression in a way that tells a story of trying to get better in more ways than one. If the singer sounds familiar, that is because he is Andrew McMahon who has recently come back with his new band Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Anyways, I think that this song is beautiful in every aspect of the term and has made me cry countless times. If you don't listen to any other song on the list, listen to this one. Favorite line (Which was hard to pick because I love every line): Come on, write me a song/Give me something to trust/Just promise you won't let it be/Just the keys that you touch

2. Northern Downpour - Panic! at the Disco

This song, just like most Panic! at the Disco songs, has lyrics that are purposefully vague yet somehow make the listener understand what they are saying and elicit from them a sort of pensive sadness that might make you shed a few tears. The song has a beautiful sound, starting with an acoustic guitar and coming in with piano in the first half in a way that gives it a unique feeling. The lyrics are equally beautiful, my favorite line being I know the world's a broken bone,/ but melt your headaches call it home.

3. Miserable at Best - Mayday Parade

This song made me bawl like a baby the first time I listened to it because it was just so beautifully sad I couldn't do anything but be emotionally drawn to it. The song is completely on piano and tells the story of a guy who was emotionally invested in a girl, but the girl has not chosen him back. It is a ballad of trying to let go of the one you love, but tells the emotional side of how hard it is. You can't help but put yourself in that situation and feel bad for the guy because the emotion is so raw. My favorite line in this song is Because these words were never easier/For me to say or her to second guess/But I guess/That I can live without you but/Without you I'll be miserable

4. Boring - The Brobecks

This one is by a band that 99% of people haven't heard of, but the song is one that I find especially helpful in putting into words the feeling of depression. Though the song is mainly about someone feeling empty about the absence of someone else, I think that it's also more than that and that "missing person" could also be missing emotion. The sound, though seemingly upbeat, is oddly haunting and hollow in a way that conveys the feeling of being alone in a crowd, where everyone else is feeling one way and you are feeling another. Favorite line: Wasted, time is less effective,/Then growing less attractive to you,/There's nothing that's new anymore.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
