Please, please don't drown in all those tears.

Jilbur.....I'm sorry you're feeling so shitty.


I'm sorry that you're in the mood for this particular playlist, and hope that it won't last much longer. However, getting the tears out is often better than trying to hold them in.

I'm quite fond of crying songs, and you've listed most of the ones that came to my mind, but here are a couple more:

Cry Me a River -- Ella Fitzgerald
Drown in my Own Tears -- Aretha Franklin
River of Tears -- Eric Clapton

I hope you'll be ready for happier songs soon.


May I suggest "Happy Talk" by Captain Sensible?


Also: 'It's my party and I'll cry if I want to"
(ok, it was twenty years ago, I can't remember the artist).
Don't worry, Be happ I can't even finish that cheesy thought...


Oh, Jilbur-- I'm sorry about the funk.

How about:
96 Tears--?[sic] and the Mysterians
Tears Don't Care Who Cries Them--k.d. lang
Dancing with Tears in my Eyes--X [written by Al Dubin & Joe Burke]

I also like listening to Tom Waits when in a funk, but can't think of any songs of his with tears in the title. Whiskey, now, that's another story.


Suddenly I feel the urge to sing, "Row, row, row your boat".


The Velvet Underground song "Jesus" used to always make me cry. I don't know if that counts though.

Sometimes when my baby starts to fuss I do a very loud Roberta Flack imitation and say: DON'T CRY OUT LOUD! TRY TO KEEP IT INSIDE! LEARN HOW TO HIDE YOUR FEELINGS!
