October 5, 2010
Sika from the animated comedy blog Lunki and Sika in a tan and a Sika t-shirtThe British organization PRS for music has made a study to find out what songs make men cry when listened to. For me “You’ve got a friend” with James Taylor or Carole King will do the trick. I yours one of these?
Here’s the top 10.
1. REM –”Everybody hurts”
2. Eric Clapton –”Tears in heaven”
3. Leonard Cohen –”Hallelujah”
4. Sinead O’Connor –”Nothing compares 2 u”
5. U2 –”With or without you”
6. The Verve –”The drugs don’t work”
7. Elton John –”Candle in the wind”
8. Bruce Springsteen –”Streets of Philadelphia”
