Music is one of those things that can stir emotions in weird ways. I frequently find myself getting a little teary on haunting violin instrumentals. There are also songs that can make me tear up because they're so heartfelt, like Belinda Carlile's The Story. But for my pick as the most unexpected artist that makes me tear up is...Ozzy Osbourne.
There is something about Ozzy's voice that seems so emotional to me that it can get me to tear up. Plus the music of his slower songs hits that spot with his use of strings.
**Dreamer** : The music, the lyrics and his voice just go together.
**Diary of a Madman** : This has both the haunting strings and he sounds so desperate.
**You Can't Kill Rock and Roll**: The opening guitar sets me up and then there's just something about the way Ozzy sings it.
**Road to Nowhere**
**Back on Earth**
Strangely enough, Goodbye to Romance doesn't do it to me.
Do you have any artists that make you tear up that people might not expect?
