C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Natalie Merchant

Leaving my farewell to my friends...

I am a big cryer. Ask my kids, they're embarassed for me. There are just some things that reduce me to tears in no time at all.

Natalie Merchant's voice and lyrics get me teary each and every time I listen to her. I was pregnant with my eldest when her song "Wonder" came out and I couldn't get through it without tears rolling down my face, no matter how many times I heard it. Still get a catch in my throat just thinking about it.

So when I went looking for "Kind and Generous" to include in my last bobblehead thread, I found out that Natalie Merchant has a new album (are they even called albums anymore?) being released May 6th, and the first track is "Giving Up Everything".

And yes, she did it to me again. I'm crying.

Goodbyes are also a big crying opportunity. I don't do well with them, so I tend to avoid it as much as possible. So this isn't a goodbye from me. I'll be back.

So my last themed LNMC: whose music just moves you to tears?
