Round 1

Vinnie Paz "Keep Movin' On" feat. Shara Worden - Official Video

He is speaking in first person but the song is about 3 different people he knows.

Beautiful emotional song, rest in peace Grimmie.

"Just A Dream" by Nelly - Sam Tsui & Christina Grimmie






Round 2

Sia - Bird Set Free

Much better if you have it a bit louder than you usually listen to music if it's in the background.

YT plain/official-still video for the audio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrT_0J6m6y8

Optional fan-made video that combines the film blood diamonds with this songs fantastically:

May be taken down for copyright, who knows...

I've got my own Sia song to counter yours ;)

"She Wolf" by Sia and David Guetta

That's fine, I think mine's more emotional than yours but when it comes to rap you are miles behind me, or so I believe. ;)

NF - Therapy Session

This might actually be my favourite emotional song, airplanes by rapper B.o.B.

"Airplanes" by B.o.B and Hayley Williams

When We Were Young - Adele

In case that goes down or whatever, here's the YT, Spotify and iTunes:

YT: https://youtu.be/DDWKuo3gXMQ?t=42 - timestamped URL helps you skip the intro scene

The Spotify and iTunes refer to an 'original' that is as acoustic as the live performance, so I don't see the difference. She has removed the original from her YT to force you to get the iTunes or Spotify Premium etc. but has left up that live performance.

Adelle is an obvious choice, good pick. Adelle is the princess of emotional music, Lana Del Ray is the queen though.

"Hope is a Dangerous Thing" by Lana Del Ray







Round 5

I will just say I don't agree at all to you putting Adele beneath Lana Del Ray at emotional music but I concede it's a very subjective thing to rank.

Bugzy Malone - Run Ft. Rag'n'Bone Man

YT: https://youtu.be/otv0Ikaudp4?t=50 - timestamped like the last Round for the same reason.

"King" by Lauren Aquilina



Cheers for the battle Madman, let's have one on classical music at some point.
