R.E.M Song 'Everybody Hurts' Makes Men Cry Most
September 29, 2010
R.E.M’s hit ‘Everybody Hurts’ has been named the song most likely to make men cry, according to a new survey.
The study, conducted by PRS for Music, polled more than 1,700 people on tearful songs.
‘Everybody Hurts’ was written by R.E.M’s drummer Bill Berry and originally released as a single in 1993.
It was also re-recorded earlier this year with a list of star-studded guest vocalists to raise money for the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
Ellis Rich, chairman of PRS for Music, said: “A well-written tear-jerker is one that people can relate to and empathise with.
“It is this lyrical connection that can reach deep down emotionally and move even the strongest of men.’”
