Look closely and you see that Billie has tears in her eyes after Lester Young's solo

 This is generally acknowledged as the greatest jazz moment ever broadcast on national television. And with good reason. Billie Holiday is joined by an all-star band and delivers a deeply felt version of "Fine and Mellow." This was a song that Holiday seemed to sing better with the passing years - not a claim one could make for most of her repertoire. But this is a world-weary composition, and no lady was more worldly or weary than Billie Holiday, circa 1957. Lester Young delivers a touching solo that even moves the vocalist. His TV studio reunion with Holiday may have inspired him, but I have a hunch that the proximity of Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster in the room (these being the real three tenors by the measure of any swing jazz fan) may have had something to do with it too. If TV were always this good, we could get rid of our iPods.

At this point in my life,with all I've been through,it takes a mountain moving to bring me to tears.I first heard this song a few weeks ago.Maybe it was the holidays coming on or maybe way too much 15yo Scotch,don't know.I do know about 10 years of tears just came flooding out about half way through.Hope you like it.

Music that makes me cry. I have a few examples.

Forever by Breaking Benjamin
Almost as if he is already dead, "can i stay alive forever?" As if that was taken from him early, and wasn't ready.

For albums, I wouldn't say a album at all, but a demo. That is "Origin" by Evanescence, I don't understand why this demo isn't widely mentioned on head-fi because it's nothing less than amazing.
