** warning song mentions child neglect and death**
I blame my mother for this as she played this to us when I was just a small girl, and when I went to live with my dad at age 5 it was on a mixed tape that she sent with me. My dad confiscated it cause it used to upset me so much. Still upsets me today, although I think if I didn't have the childhood trigger it wouldn't make my cry.
Just after I finished school, a good friend's mum died of stomach cancer. It was the first funeral I had ever been to. I went with my Mum. It is 20 years later and I'm tearing up now just thinking about it. I, too am on IVF drugs so that could be a contributor.
"Saltwater" by Julian Lennon is the first song that made me cry, by memory.
"Soon we'll be found" by Sia still gets me. I listened to it a lot when I was in the dying days of an abusive relationship. It seemed to speak all the sadness I had. It takes me right back and still breaks my heart.
"What a wonderful world" and "I just called to say I love you" were played at Dad's funeral and I still feel I can't catch my breath when I hear them.
