A first dance at a wedding. A perfect song from a film soundtrack. A harmless track made more powerful with real-world context. From “Toy Story” soundtracks to The Beatles classics, there are dozens of Reddit threads dedicated to finding, commemorating, and sharing the saddest songs in existence.
Below, 20 Reddit users share the life-changing songs that make them tear up every time.
“When She Loved Me” — Sarah McLachlan
“That damn song in “Toy Story 2″ where it shows Jessie’s owner getting older and forgetting about her.” — Redditor Jimmie_Kirby
“Fix You” — Coldplay
“When my husband I were dating, he sent me that song to listen to, knowing I liked Coldplay but didn’t know a lot of their songs. I wound up ugly crying in the parking lot because it reminds me of my dad — and funnily enough, Chris Martin wrote this for his (ex) wife Gwyneth Paltrow when she lost her dad.” — Redditor dewprisms
“Wish You Were Here” — Pink Floyd
“My step-dad passed in May, he loved Pink Floyd and we used to just chill out and listen to music together. This song gets me every time I listen to it now.” — Redditor printerfromhell
