It evolved. While some "Money, Cash, B!7c#**" songs do exist, what makes that so different from the "Sex, Drugs, Rock'n'Roll" songs of hair metal bands. A lot of rap is shallow and stupid. So is a lot of non-rap music. As long as there has been a lowest common denominator, music has been made, in all genres, to exploit them. Are you honestly going to tell me that this

 

is better than this?:

 



Now, for some rap music with the emotional intensity to make me actually cry.

There's only one song that makes me cry.  It's a beautiful song, but it's not the music that makes me emotional.  I only listen to it on the very worst of days, with some top shelf scotch.  So my strongest memories of pain, heartbreak, and anger are deeply tied to it now.  I can't listen to it anymore, except on those days.  I'll be going to the store soon to get myself some Glen Fiddich, or McClellands, So I thought it might be appropriate to share this song.

 

 

Rest in piece Nikki, you were an amazing, and beautiful person.

Saddest video game theme song of ALL TIME.  This really brings back emotions each time I listen to this.

 

 

Another one that is rather sad:

 

 

I was a huge Final Fantasy fan back in the day, but whenever I hear these songs again, I get pretty emotional.  If anyone's actually played through these games, you'll know what I mean.

Interesting, I've never thought of Zanarkand as a sad piece. All I hear is beauty. I guess in the context of the story it is meant to be sad, but all I can think of when I hear this song is the first time I heard it and immediately knew I was going to love this game. This reminds me: I recently watched a let's play of FFX on YouTube and cried during the scene where Yuna sends the spirits of the people who died in Kilika. Wasn't just the music but it played its part nonetheless.

 

I'm a huge fan of FF7-FF10 (well perhaps not 9 that much, but it has its moments). Final Fantasy VII was something one could call a life-altering experience for me. Not sure what happened to the series after FFX; none of the more recent games appeal to me.

After playing the first two Max Payne shooters, hearing this in the third one and seeing the torment in Max's life... it got to me

 

I'd also have to say The Mayor by Rasputina. It's about living with someone with mental illness, and the way they end up running a whole families life. If you've ever lived with it, you'd understand.
