What recording do you have that moves you to tears and why?

For me, it's track 12. La Elima from 'Alone In IZ World' by Iz Kamakawiwo'ole (Mountain Apple Compnay BBCD 5907). Stunning recording, true audiophile quality. You can pretty much see the air passing over his vocal cords.

The track is performed in Hawai'ian, just the artist and his ukulele. Iz possesses great control throughout the track. He can belt it out yet in the same line can display tenderness. I definitely reach 'nirvana' with this track, and yes, I do get moved to tears when I hear this track in my studio.

What moves you?

What moves you?

I used to have the coolest dog, and eveytime I play the song "Old Eyes" by Ten Hands, it reminds me of him and I get all snuffly.

I met you in an earlier time
we had just one thing in common
that was the only thing in my life
I remember that one spring day
when we drove out in the country
flying past houses, farms and fields

I would give anything
to be with you again
I would give anything
to hear you call my name
I would give anything
to see your smiling face
to see you with my old eyes

that wasn't so long ago
when we were both quite naive
oh the things that I believed
I remember the summer with you
when we lived out in the country
so much life and so much time

time is changing
now my life is rearranged
there's so much trouble
we got lost
I could not find you
had to leave you far behind
but I will be with you again
