The songs

Juice stopped by to ask what songs give me the ugly cry without fail.

She wrote: You MUST tell which songs give you the ugly cry. And if one of them is butterfly kisses I will totally mock you."

I hate disappointing people, but butterfly kisses is not one of them. Thank goodness.

However, if I were giving out awards, Juice would get one for reminding me of a song I could have posted on the whole "worst songs" debate. I've always thought butterfly kisses was dumb.

My apologies to those of you who love the song. I know you're out there. But if we all liked the same songs, there would be no MaryAnn or Ginger / Professor or Skipper debates raging among the population, either. What fun would that be? None.

The songs are:

Come on get higher by Matt Nathanson

What might have been by Little Texas

The day of the cat food run, it was the Little Texas song with which I conducted my experiment. Ya'll want the lyrics, you're gonna have to put that into the Google machine yerselves.

Before I wrap up this post, I must tell Juice that her comment made me laugh out loud, the loud laugh that makes people look at you and think you're a nut in the frozen foods aisle.

Also, for Ryan: I'm wearing my school marm shoes with tights. I hope no one sees me and thinks I've fallen victim to fashion stupidity.

Have a good day!

Oh,the song that makes me cry without fail is not a song at all but is the first thing listed in my labels, called 10,000 Lakes

There are others but this one just really gets to me.

The classical piece `Oh My Beloved Father' always brings a tear to my eye.

I hate to admit it, but I'll burst into tears over most anything. But there are a number of cornball songs that always get me - You Don't Bring Me Flowers is chief among them.

MyMaracas, I get misty eyed at most songs any more. Sigh.

Oh my goodness - I'm featured in a post. Woot! My life is now complete.

Actually, I think my sister will kill me if she reads this post. She picked Butterfly Kisses for the Father / Daughter dance at her wedding. While it was playing I simultaneously mocked her AND cried (not to her face, with my snarky cousin at the table). Not an ugly cry, but not really a pretty cry either.

I promise that if I ever get married, Butterfly Kisses will be banned. As will all songs by Richard Marx.

The end.
