50 Songs That Never Fail To Make Us Cry


If I’m in the mood to cry, I know exactly how to make it happen: I have a Spotify playlist called “Saddies” that’s the perfect soundtrack for a good, old fashioned waterworks sesh. Obviously, I have some typical tearjerkers on there like “Unchained Melody” and “I Will Always Love You,” but the majority of them are songs specific to situations in my life that have made me want to rip my heart out of my body and shove it through a meat grinder. We all have them. I’ve asked my fellow Frisky ladies which songs make them cry until they have boogers running down their faces, and here’s the unified list of tunes guaranteed to make us bawl. Share your own cry-inducing songs in the comments!

A Step-By-Step Guide To Comforting Your Crying Girlfriend

Let’s talk about crying. Specifically, about the awkward dynamic that occurs when you’re crying hysterically and your boyfriend is sitting there looking trapped, but not in a “bitches be cray,” kind of way. He’s looking at you like he’s scared because he loves you and he wants to help you feel better but he’s not sure what to do. Only you don’t want any kind of help, all you want is comfort — especially if you’re in the throes of a hormonal crying jag. Those are the worst because they come on suddenly and can be set off by something as small as running out of toothpaste and make you feel inordinate amounts of embarrassment. I’m crying and I have no idea why!?

Trying to figure out why only makes you cry harder and then the boyfriend feels more helpless, because even though he may be a super sensitive dude, the only time he cried in the last decade was when his grandmother died. It’s not that he doesn’t feel crappy enough to cry. He just expresses it differently. Crying, for him, is a last resort type of thing and it’s always pegged to a specific event. He doesn’t get that crying for you, is like cleaning gunk out of drain –if you don’t do it every now and then, the drain will get clogged. So there he is getting frustrated by how inept he feels and you end up having to comfort him. No really, I’m fine, just leave me alone and let me cry my fucking brains out. Sound familiar?It probably does. What he needs a step-by-step guide for how to handle you when you’re in the throes of a crying jag. We thought we’d help out. Keep reading »

What To Think About When You’re Trying Not To Cry In Public

I am a crier. I cry when I’m happy, I cry when I’m sad, I am the kind of person who cries at sloths. I cry when other people look lonely — really, it happened just last week at a restaurant — and I cry when I am excited to see people. I cry whenever that fucking Sarah McLachlan SPCA commercial pops on. I am a crier, and that is okay. However, I don’t like crying in public when I am genuinely upset: it’s awkward, bizarre and makes other people uncomfortable. Read more…

"I'm thinking about really terrible things."

Dudes seem to find a way to compete about everything: money, cars, who has the biggest beer belly. So it’s no surprise that Brett Hoff of magazine Wholphin dreamed up a Crying Competition where the rules state that the first tear to hit the table wins. “This might be the least fun I’ve ever had on the beach,” says one participant. It turns out, these guys suck at crying — and are easily shown up by the film’s female producer when it comes to shedding tears. [Laughing Squid]

Do you remember laying flat on your bed, eyes gushing like Old Faithful, unsightly snot dripping down way too close to your open mouth? This is you after your dog died. This is you after a break up. This is you after failing to assemble an Ikea chair.

This image comes frighteningly close to what I was doing this week. My best friend and roommate moved to another state and an onslaught of huge life changes came my way. While making like weeping roadkill, Kate Bush’s song, “Suspended in Gaffa” came through my head. I don’t know why I’m crying, Kate croons.

“Wait, I don’t know why I’m crying,” I thought to myself.

So, I did my homework. Keep reading »
