1. What Song Describes Your Family?

    All Songs Considered’s question of the week: What Song Describes Your Family?

    Tell us about a song that describes your family. It can be a happy song or sad, a literal or not so literal one. Whatever reminds you of your family. Tell us about the song in the comments section. Or, better yet, go to our Soundcloud page and record your story for us. We’ll feature select songs and stories in next week’s Thanksgiving edition of All Songs Considered.

    These Go To 11: Songs Best Heard Extra-Loud

There’s no denying certain songs are best experienced when played as loud as possible. Since this Friday, 11/11/11, is Nigel Tufnel Day — the unofficial holiday honoring the fictional Spinal Tap guitarist, who cranked his amplifiers past 10 — this week’s All Songs Considered episode is all about the songs that instantly make you want to turn the volume up.

  1. Sometimes the melody or the singer’s voice alone is enough to start the waterworks. But more often than not it reminds us of a time or a place or a person. Go to our Soundcloud page and record yourself telling us about the song that always makes you cry. No need to prepare an essay or anything, you can just ad-lib it. Tell us your first name, where you’re from, the song and why it makes you weepy. We’ll use some of the stories we get in an upcoming episode of All Songs Considered.

    TdoubleB note: These songs do it to me

    1. "When Did You Stop Loving Me" by Marvin Gaye

    2. "Giving Up" by Donny Hathaway

    3. "Fragile" by Sting (the version from “All This Time”)

    4. “The Battle is the Lord’s” by Yolanda Adams

    5. "Words Can’t Describe" by Sarah Vaughan
