#AtoZChallenge : Cry

We’re back again with more fun with the A to Z Challenge.

A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 2 to 3 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use said word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!

Today’s word is “Cry”

From Dictionary.com:

Cross Canadian Ragweed “Cry Lonely”

Hootie & The Blowfish “Let Her Cry”

Alice Cooper “I Never Cry”

And that’s my 3 Cries for the day.  Let’s see what Cry songs you come up with. Share in the comments.

  1. Nice songs.


  2. I have never heard of Cross Canadian Ragweed - but I love their sound. And I've always loved Hootie and the Blowfish. My song of choice for Alice Cooper though is Poison ;)
    My song for cry would have the be "Cry Little Sister" - The Lost Boys was a defining moment in my life, birthing my whole vampire obsession, and that song helped!

    1. I always like learning about new groups and new songs. There are so many out there!

      Cry Little Sister is a good one! Thanks for stopping in.

  3. I'm sure I know a bunch of songs with crying, I just can't think of any...

    The Multicolored Diary

  4. The Box Tops, "Cry Like A Baby." Melissa Manchester, "Don't Cry Out Loud." Prince, "When Doves Cry."

  5. Excellent choices! I always forget about Melissa Manchester, which is weird because I used to really like her.

    1. Crying is good, too! How about Cry Cry Cry by Johnny Cash

  7. First thing in my head - "Cry Me A River" by Justin Timberlake


    1. Justin's Cry Me A River never seems to get enough airplay. Excellent choice!

  8. Mary,

    Despite the popular 'Big Girls Don't Cry', I think crying is a good thing. It does the soul good to release the heart regardless the cause - happiness or sorrow. I was totally surprised to find all three songs are new-to-me. Cross Canadian Ragweed I hadn't heard of and Hootie & Blowfish I've heard of do doubt from a fellow 4M partner. But the biggest surprise is Alice Copper's song. Why have not heard it before now is beyond me. Excellent choices! Thanks for visiting my A2Z Little Mermaid Carlotta art sketch post, my friend!

    1. The Alice Cooper song was a new to me as well, and you well.. I like sharing my finds!

  9. I don't know the first one at all but the others I do. I have to give it to Roy Orbison-Crying and Don't Cry for me Argentina.

  10. Hootie all the way. What a voice! For some reason Alice Cooper seemed off key. Clear the Clutter to Avoid Burnout

  11. "Cry" by James Blunt.
    "I Cry" by Westlife.
    "yesterday I cried" lyric in "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks.

    So much crying (I like Roy Orbinson and KD Lang's version of the song), I had to add some fun in my selection :-)
