What are some of your band’s go to “crying” song if they have any. This is the song that they perform normally towards the end of their concert where 1 to all band members cry or break down. The vocalists sometimes stop singing all together and break down. I have been rewatching some live clips and maybe like half of the bands I see has this kind of song.
As few examples:
During the Jubilee era for Versailles, they would cry or tear-up to Serenade after Jasmine’s passing. And again during the Holy Grail’s Faith and Decision
Another is X Japan’s Without You/Art of Life/Endless Rain … actually they have a lot of crying song lol but Yoshiki tends to oversell it
To a lesser extent, Mejibray’s BI“name”JIKA during their last live
I thought we were talking about sad songs which I was going to throw in RENTRER EN SOI’s 神話, several GazettE and Diru that I won’t list since we’d be here all day, and others I can’t think of at the moment. Yeah trying to come up with songs that make bands cry isn’t that easy because I don’t recall it happening that often; Mejibray being the major in recent history, and YOSHIKI cries every concert so that’s nothing new. It’ll be interesting to see this list grow.
Kagerou - Nawa (Especially the version from their last live DVD)
girugamesh - crying rain (I mean, obviously… the title even tells you to cry. They played this song at their last concert abroad in Aschaffenburg and when we were waiting in line you could hear Ryo playing it on the piano in the backstage rooms on the second floor, he also posted a video of it later, but his instagram vanished?)
Honestly can’t tell any of them apart vkei or Japanese songs are just plain out either depressing lyrics about longing or are anime op about revolution or something. But only one comes to mind. Weird. OH WAIT nijikan shabondama and Escapism from an cafe yeah those are definitely emotional… I think. And I guess 7th floor from suck a stew dry. Man japanese rock music is just sad and I thought I was weird.
