Sometimes you’ve just got to break down…crying that is. Tears can be therapeutic in both depressed and jubilant circumstances. The 14 songs that grace this list all encompass tears in different capacities, whether the context is happy or sad or the “tears” themselves are more metaphorical. Regardless, these songs need to be spinning on any and everybody’s tearful playlist!
1) Faith Evans, “Tears Of Joy” (R&B Divas, 2012)
Faith Evans indeed has “tears of joy” on her moving song of the same title. This is not a sad song in the least as Evans doesn’t reference pain, but jubilance, exuberance, and happiness. The lyrics are perfect on the refrain: “I’m crying now, but it’s not like before / Baby these are tears of joy / They’ve been the same since you walked through my door / Baby these are tears of joy.” Cry on Faith – cry on!
