Is this a thing? It's certainly happening to me. I happened across "Fisherman's Blues" on spotify lately, which I hadn't listened to in donkey's years, and "A bang on the ear" had me all teary (not actually crying now mind, steady on there). I had to go all silent while I was sweeping the floor and just potter around the kitchen not talking to or looking at anyone until it was over. I dunno what the story was, it's not as if I had a load of girlfriends like the song's protagonist or anything. Grief for my lost youth maybe?

Your chakras are probably out of whack. I get teary at music all the time, most recently last weekend watching a crowded house concert from last year on YouTube. I that case I think it was a bit like those dreams where somebody/something gone is really back. Not so much that crowded house were gone and then back but more like those times that coincided with when they were also aroun, when we were all young etc

As the nostalgia grows more palpable, and all of that.

I've always been a hyper emotional flower, so I can only imagine where I'm going.

I think I told this story before. While driving Weezer's Let It All Hang Out came on the stereo. If I wasn't in a full car I swear I'd have pulled over and taken a minute. On the surface it is a dumb party song I heard frustration and yearning. The protagonist in this song isn't going out with his homies and he knows it.
