7 Harry Styles Songs That Are The Best For a Good Crying Session
Harry Styles has songs for nearly every occasion. Want to jam out and dance around your apartment? Done. Want to scream something on the highway? Also done. Want to just turn down your lights and sob in your covers, thinking about anything and everything there is to be sad about? He’s got you covered too.
So, if you’re in the mood for a good crying session, here are the seven best Harry Styles songs for just that. These are in no particular order, however, the last two are a doozy.
1. “From the Dining Table”
It’s not Styles’ slowest or saddest song, however, it is full of longing. “From the Dining Table” tells the story of when someone breaks things off, but then you see them out and about with someone else. It’s a good song that gets you in your feels without overdoing it.
Styles told Variety that the song is “the one that makes” him “feel the most.” It’s also the song that’s “the most different” than what he usually wrote.
2. “Meet Me In The Hallway”
This one has a lot of emotion regarding addiction or wanting to get better despite being in an awful position. It’s not super slow, however, the heavy emotion from Styles can easily be heard throughout the chorus.
3. “Fine Line”
Off of Styles’ second album, Fine Line, the title track from the album closes it off. It’s dreamy and ethereal, with his voice giving fans a beautiful send-off. This isn’t a particularly sad song; he’s talking about the highs and lows we all get. He also told Capital FM that it’s a good description of how he wrote the album.
It’s on this list because it fills you with good vibes, but in a nostalgic, too-comfy way. If you’re already in the mood to cry, this one will hit you in the gut unlike what you might have been expecting.
4. “Two Ghosts”
“Two Ghosts” isn’t as sad as some others, but it is a very somber song. It also might be his most poetic, which can always elicit a good cry out of anyone. It was his second single ever as a solo artist, and it depicts two exes meeting each other again after splitting up.
Again, not particularly sad, but with the lines, “We’re just two ghosts swimming in a glass half empty, Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat” how are you not supposed to get goosebumps? This song is great if you’re already crying or sad, too.
“Cherry” is a bit different song than the rest on this list. It’s not a sad, longing song, but rather a song about jealousy and looking back at someone you used to love deeply. It’s not hateful or full of regret, it just is what it is. Which, of course, lends itself very well to a good crying session.
6. “Sign of the Times”
This is Styles’ very first single after leaving One Direction as a solo artist, and it is very emblematic of his path. He wrote it from the perspective of a dying mother who’s giving her last words to her newborn child. So it’s already about death and goodbyes. Add in Styles’ voice and the epic instrumentation throughout, and this will fill you with so many tears.
“Just stop your crying” Styles sings. Yeah, good luck with that one.
Probably the most fitting song to have on repeat why you’re crying, “Falling” is all about despair and sadness. His music video for this one literally has Styles drowning in water, so no worries; you’ll drown in your tears if you want to, too.
It’s similar to “Sign of The Times,” in that the instrumentation adds to the overall sadness and gravitas of the song. And the thing that really hits this one home is that all the problems he’s facing are caused by him and him alone. It’s brutally honest, and his voice just makes it beautifully sad. If you see your friend listening to this at 3 a.m. on Spotify, make sure to give them a call.
