I'm curious, what songs leave a lump in your throat?

I'm just wondering because why not
These are my top 10 saddest songs (off the top of my head) in no particular order:

Words Fail - Dear Evan Hansen
God Must Hate Me - Catie Turner
When I am Laid in Earth - Henry Purcell
The Village - Wrabel
Kill the Switch - Addison Grace
My Own Person - Smoothboi Ezra
This isn't a song but it's a piece by Chopin- Ballade no. in Gm, Op. 23
One More Light - Linkin Park
Young Forever - BTS
Burn - Hamilton (this one only tears me up when I sing it myself because I end up getting too in character lmao)
recently it's:

Nobody's favourite by lecky (which is part of the soundtrack of "Mood" which is a tv series musical!)
La, La, Laa
I’m not even sure why I’m here
I’m feeling things I’ve hid for years
Tried to bury all my darkest fears
Wishing they would disappear
I’m too old to need the warmth from my mother’s hug
But I’m cold and tired of hiding my tears.


I wanna be loved
I’m ashamed to say it
I need to be loved but I’m nobody’s favourite
I’m nobody’s favourite

I’m not even sure why I’m telling you
I guess I’m hoping for a breakthrough
Maybe you noticed when I felt blue?
Maybe you didn’t and that’s also true
I’m too old to need the warmth from my mother’s hug
But can you hold me like you used to do.


etc,... just very relatable :cry:


some more by dodie and ariana grande I can immediately think of but just wanted to shout out the amazing soundtrack of "Mood" - a BBC IPlayer series :biggrin:
