    Shit is crazy. It's the OG. Dude is incredibly tender and heartfelt when he sung it. I believe written to Yoko after John's "lost weekend" in LA in the 70s.

    roberta flack

    the frickin' FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE

    johnny cash

    Totally.




    But what gets me though is Tom Petty (old or new). Every song of his seems to be about ditching your life and driving accoss country aimlessly never to return home again.

    Man, that shit gets me everytime.

    Jazzanova - Little Bird ft. Jose James

    Pretz - Chapel Stile (you'll find it on YouTube)

    The Jazzanova track in particular reduces me to tears. If you can listen to it all the way through and feel nothing, you're definitely a replicant.

    The Pretz track puts a lump in my throat.

    one that gets me every time is Gary Bartz - I've Known Rivers. something about the piano on that just makes me flat out bawl. crazy

    Isleys - Highways of my life

    Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway - the closer I get to you (a lot of Donny actually, after knowing how the guy suffered)
