"Top 5 Songs That Trigger Tears When Drinking" According to Jen Murphy.
Jen Murphy sure is one witty and wild chick and while some might even label her "crazy," we're certain they are referring to her comedy being crazy hilarious. Another thing that is kind of "crazy" is that Murphy comes off all sweet and innocent but when she hits that stage, what's coming out of that mouth of hers is a sexual innuendo fest full of funny. We're not here to point fingers but we do sort of think that you'd be the crazy one if you didn't go check her out for yourself at the Irvine Improv this Wednesday (July 10th) at 8pm. Before the hump day shenanigans go down (and because we happen to know that Jen enjoys a glass (or several) of white wine), we asked her to give us her "Top 5 Songs That Trigger Tears When Drinking." Why you ask? Because obviously drinking and music go hand in hand and when you are, let's just say, a little "crazy shitfaced" yourself, you might just need a good drunken cry before you pass out. Clearly, you are not alone.
5. Guns N' Roses, "November Rain"
Jen Murphy: I think part of it for me is because when I hear "November Rain," I think of the video. Also then, part of me cries because Stephanie Seymour is sooo beautiful. I want to be that beautiful. I want to wear a wedding dress! And it's not like you're looking at the video like, oh it's a wedding! It's that Stephanie Seymour just looks like a chick that would take tequila shots at her wedding. It's so rock star! Oh my god, I forgot about the dramatic ending and her dying at the end of the video. I have a tendency to block out some parts of things. [Laughs.] Now it even got sadder. Maybe subconsciously I knew about it though and that's why it makes me cry.
4. Foo Fighters, "Monkey Wrench"
It's so just brutal if you've ever been the person in the relationship that loses all of their power and you are just getting stepped on. You hear "Monkey Wrench" and it's almost empowering in a way because you're like, yeah I'm not going to be that again...and then you are that again. It's like, "Oh fuck! I don't know why I'm getting crushed again!" There is nothing worse than knowing you've lost all of your power in a situation. It's like you can spend all day ignoring them and then late at night you send a text and you're like, oh shit I fucked up again! Dammit I love the Foo Fighters.
