Songs That Make You Cry

Following Robert Barry's Quietus Essay exploring why music makes people cry, I have written a short piece about Judee Sill's 'The Kiss' for a Quietus feature called Tracks Of Our Tears: 50 Songs That Make Quietus Writers & Artists Cry. It features superb writing from some of my favourite Quietus scribes including Joe Clay,  Phil Harrison, Luke Turner, Rory Gibb, Valerie Siebert, Wyndham Wallace and Ned Raggett, and tops it off with words from artists such as living legends Matt Berry and Aidan Moffat. It's a beautifully affecting and personal collection.
