I wonder if you and I will be the only ones with "Amazing Grace" on the list? Someone else had "Everybody Hurts," and I noted that I wished I had remembered that one! Cool list.

Believe it or not these are the only two songs from your list that I know.

9. "On My Own" - Les Miserables Cast Recording

I rememer a song "On My Own" from "Fame" with Irene Cara

Nice list.

I agree with all your choices. Why did we only get 10?

We play Amazing Grace done with bagpipes at my parents youth center on Friday nights. Its a little different though because it begins mournfully and then gets really upbeat.
On my Own is my favorite song from Les Mis. I always sing along, even though its slightly too low for me.

great list! I forgot about Broadway songs.... and "Watch the Lamb" always makes me cry, too!

Julia said...

I love love love LOVE "Send Her My Love" by Journey. I was a big Journey fan when I was young :)

Happy Ten on Tuesday!

Two and three might even make me cry!

I LOVE #6. It makes me happy and sad at the same time.

#4 was played a lot during my senior year/prom/graduation...one of my favorite songs!

Kitty said...

Amazing Grace is a great pick. I wish I had thought of it! I don't really know the others on your list apart from Everybody Hurts.

Amy said...

Love, love, love Journey! My hubs can sing better than Steve Perry! Now that's sayin' something!

This is a great list Michael~alothough I don't know #10.

Amazing Grace is a great song, I cry everytime I hear that song.

Irishcoda said...

Oh I'd totally forgotten about Amazing Grace on bagpipes, so mournful!

Sparky Duck said...

amazing grace with bagpipes is sick sad. I think you may have found a counting crows song I have never heard of. Journey is sad because of the way they sing. I always thought On My Own was a start to victory song.

Karen said...

#2 and #9 almost made my list, along with some from Phantom. It was so hard to narrow it down to 10. Great List!

I like sad love songs. It's even written on "about me" on my blog. I also find #2 and #9 sad and yet lovely songs.

Other sad love songs I like are Towerblock, Girlfriend and Invisible War by Julia Fordham.

HM! "Does Anybody Hear Her" by Casting Crows is number one on my list, but hey! That's my opinion. I kinda agree with the list. Kinda interesting, but I agree.
