Yeah yeah, the word "emotional" is overused, but you know when you're watching a live video on youtube and something just gets to you? This is the thread for such performances.

I'll start it off with Elvis Presley singing My Way in 1977, a month or so before he died.

He's pale and overweight and you can clearly see everything isn't right, but yet he delivers such a passionate performance.

Also, I saw flogging molly in denver on new years, and it was the most emotionally charged performance I've ever seen. Can't wait to go again.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

Pearl Jam did a pretty great Unplugged session, too. That was back when they really got into their performances.

I think that's the saddest performance I've ever seen. When they did Sludge Factory, Layne was forgetting where he was, and he takes off his sunglasses and you see his eyes all dilated. And his voice was shot.

The first thing i thought when I saw this thread... When Layne took his sunglasses off, I was shocked to see the darkness around his eyes. It was a really moving show...

EDIT: What Jack Off Jill said, though his voice wasn't too bad I don't think.

Also, I was really moved by "Nutshell", knowing the problems Layne had, and well, how he died some years ago...

I was going to say that. Here's Nutshell, which opened their performance:

The summer after my sophomore year in high school, I watched that damn dvd twice a day for months. Between his dark circles, the fact that he's obviously trying to hide how skinny he is and his absesses with all those layers of clothing and gloves, it's really sad. And then when he can't hit certain notes in Down In a Hole.. It's just a bummer. I did learn how to play guitar by watching that thing, though..

Looks like Alice in Chains had the most emotional live performance, at least so far...

There seems to be a trend with Unplugged shows being more emotional though.

Bruce Springsteen, in my opinion is the undisputed KING of live, emotional performances, Every time he gives it his all and delivers, its just breathtaking.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYPSZiE0OAs

This is him performing "Thunder Road" With just him and a piano. Even if you don't enjoy his music, this will move you, i guarantee.

Well, apparently he became really reclusive and didn't answer the phone for anyone but his drug dealer. Even his family rarely saw him, and he wasn't at all happy with the AIC boys. After his girlfriend died.. I think she died around the time of that Unplugged performance.. I guess he just quit trying to get clean. He would go out to the bar and just nod out, but wouldn't drink. And according to one interview, he lost control of some of his bodily functions and was sick all the time. Who knows.. I think of all the musicians I know of, he's probably the saddest because I consider him to be the greatest vocalist of all time.

That's another really depressing performance. Elliott couldn't remember the words to his songs, how they went, or how to play them on his guitar. He'd stop midway in songs and start fumbling around, trying to remember.. And the audience would shout out lyrics and chords to him.

I don't have video, but I saw Bruce Springsteen play the day after Johnny Cash died, he opened up with an amazing performance of Walk The Line with just him and his acoustic guitar.

At the time of the Unplugged performance, he was in rehab. His fiance (or girlfriend, I'm not sure) died later that year, though, and he left rehab. After that, it was all downhill for him.

Leonard Cohen singing the Stranger Song on the Julie Felix Show back in 1967,

To this day I can't listen to the studio version.
The live version is far superior in every way.

The way they found him pretty much says a lot about how bad he was in it. He didn't deserve that. He was one of the best vocalists to ever live, I wish he was still around today.

I think they weren't together at the time. They split up a lot and got back together. Lifeless Dead from Above brings it up. He refused to see her again until the two of them were clean. I guess her mom hated him, too. Blamed him for her death. After she died, I'm sure he blamed himself, too. He also made some comments about not wanting to be with any other woman. Kurt Cobain gets too much credit for his suicide, I think. Layne's was way more depressing, and as far as I'm concerned, a much bigger loss.

Shannon Hoon, too.
