I'm dead hard, me. I can sit through Dumbo without feeling a twitch of emotion, never get teary watching tv or reading a book. Hard luck stories leave me cold. I didn't even cry when Hayley died (Corrie, for those who don't watch it) but one song always has me blubbing, and I don't know why. If it plays whilst I'm driving I have to turn it off.

barry - did you cry when Vera came back for Jack when he died ?
I'm not generally the emotional type. Indeed, I've only cried just once in the past 60 years (when my one of my cats was killed by a car in November 2021). However I struggle to listen to Simon & Garfunkel's 'Bright Eyes'.

Freddie was diagnosed as HIV Positive in 1985, and in those days, he knew it was only going to end one way, and far too soon.

I remember being around 6 years old with my mum brushing my hair before school when Terry Jacks 'Seasons in the Sun' came on the radio and I burst into tears. It still makes me sad to this day.
Oh yes, Bright Eyes always brings a tear to my eyes. Was that just Art Garfunkle song or did Paul Simon write it? Anyway, I can't watch Watership Down for fear of crying! Lol
tigger - // Was that just Art Garfunkle song or did Paul Simon write it? //

It was written by Mike Batt of Wombles fame, who wrote a lot of Katie Melua's early songs.
7:30 am yesterday I sat in a traffic jam in Tübingen, in a cream- coloured Mercedes taxi, being driven by my wonderful local lady taxi driver/owner, when on her radio came;

It brought back memories so profound of people gone & lost that I confess to tears as I sat there in the back, having not heard it for many years.
I could write a novella on this.
