Musical Songs that Get Me

Well, one thing that musicals are known for are their emotional side. But the only way they could make you tear up is if you formed a strong enough emotional connection. Plus, the songs have to be powerful enough, and usually they tend to be either heartbreaking or bittersweet, but it has happened during a happy song. So, what are those songs?

Musical Songs that Drive me to Tears

  1. I Dreamed a Dream
  2. Come to Me
  3. On My Own
  4. A Little Fall of Rain
  5. Drink With Me
  6. Bring Him Home
  7. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
  8. Will I
  9. Without You
  10. I’m Not That Girl
  11. For Good
  12. True Love
  13. Beauty and the Beast


I don’t think that reaction even started until Les Mis entered my life. Despite knowing that sad was an emotion, I still wasn’t an emotional wreck. Heartbreak wasn’t there yet—I had to discover it when I least expected it.

There are some songs that have driven me to tears, but not all the time (so they don’t exactly count).

  1. Ack, the entire Les Mis soundtrack is SO EMOTIONAL. I mean, so many of the songs are likely to make me cry. Especially anything related to Fantine. “Beauty and the Beast” is also a very moving song.
    The first several times I heard “Welcome Home (Finale)” from Bandstand I cried.
