Beautiful music, does it make you cry, does it make you dance? It does for me.

Does music make you cry?

I was wondering if other trans sisters get as emotional as I do when listening to music.

    This afternoon I had a wonderful time with my sister, we met at a local brew pub a short walk from where I live. They know me there and sometimes they’ll automatically bring me my favorite beer.
    We were talking about our past, digging back into our memories, and we started remembering favorite songs from long ago. When I returned home I went online and looked up a bunch of them, and the tears started flowing like rivers – so much for my mascara! I also love to dance while listening to music, music seems to have a firm grip on my very emotional and feminine soul.
    So please share with me, does music make you cry? Does it make you dance?

      Jupiter by Holst is probably one of the most moving pieces ever written. But the Neptune movement when performed with the choral pierces is so hauntingly beautiful as well.

      It’s amazing that any human could write things like this.

      I had a similar feeling when visiting Notre Dame Cathedral and just spent hours taking it all in. I’d have to add in the spirit of this thread’s question about emotions that seeing the news of it burning was probably one of the most upsetting times of my life.

      certain songs have caused me to actually break down crying. some of these are “catch” by the cure, “candy says” by velvet underground, “ooh child” by  the five stairsteps,  and, believe it or not, “georgie girl” by the seekers… these had a really powerful affect on me and i was like a hardened punk rocker too! … i repressed so much emotion and something of these particular songs struck me a little too deep.

        For some reason, “Georgy Girl” always reminds me of when my interest in being a woman first started.

      When I was but a child, about 6 years old, I had this experience with an old tape from my deceased uncle. The music was from a movie and it was a little girl singing. It was otherworldly and very sweet. Never heard it again, but cried all night long by hearing it over and over again. That was me, alone in my parents bedroom, on Christmas…

      Ever since my relationship with music has always been of feelings before anything else. I cry listening to Debbie Harry sometimes, Nina Simone, video game music from squaresoft, many movie themes, Sayonara Solitaire always, Royksopp (what else is there), even Garbage… there’s just too many songs to remember right now, but when I feel blue I play those just to cry and vent alone. It feels mostly good… Should have written this listening to one.

      Oh Lauren, you nailed it.  When my hormone levels were higher I could dew up easily and had to keep a tissue close by.  Now as I’ve become an old lady it takes a little more to turn the faucet on.  Usually tunes going back to the late 60’s and early 70’s will work quickly to either bring a tear to my eye (dead comrades) or get me out on the dance floor (great parties).  I find it both strange and wonderful that sounds could have such a permanent imprint on me and evoke long forgotten memories.  Incidentally, it’s not just music because certain sounds will do it too.  Personally, I just like to concentrate on the happy party sounds but sometimes get blindsided when I least expect it.  I have a juke box filled with 45’s  featuring 60’s and 70’s hits and if I’m getting blue I just play my happy sounds and have a cold beer.  Then all the world seems better.  So,  I guess that I’m afflicted too.  Thanks for this nostalgic post.  Marg
