Moved to Tears: Sad Movies


Do movies, songs, or other forms of artistic expression easily make you cry? Tell us about a recent tear-jerking experience!


This prompt reminded me of the hit single ‘Sad Movies’ originally sung by American singer Sue Thompson  and written by John D Loudermilk.

The lyrics are as follows:

Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
He said he had to work, so I went to the show alone.
They turned down the lights and turned the projector on.
And just as the news of the world started to begin,
I saw my darling and my best friend walking in.
Although I was sitting right there they didn’t see me.
And so they both sat right down in the front of me.
And when he kissed her lips then I almost died.
And in the middle of the colour cartoon I started to cry.
Oh Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
And so I got on up and slowly I walked on home,
And Mama saw the tears and said “Baby what is wrong”.
And so just to keep from telling her a lie,
I just said “Sad movies makes me cry”.
Oh Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
Sad movies always make me cry
