It's OK, we're all pals...
So I'm throwing down the gauntlet here...

You can explain why, or leave it unsaid. Can be tears of joy, too. Doesn't have to happen every time you hear it, maybe just once.

Own up, and don't be a p*ssy!

For me (in no particular order):

Chocolate Genius-- "Black Music". Track: "My Mama". So sad, if it doesn't move you, check your pulse, you might be dead.

Beth Orton-- "Central Reservation". A number of tracks have made me well up. Something unreal about that voice...
American Music Club-- "San Francisco", "Mercury". A number of tracks.

Luka Bloom-- "Riverside". Track: "You couldn't have come at a better time".

Jeff Buckley--"Grace". Track: "Last Goodbye".

Mark Eitzel--"60 Watt Silver Lining". Any number of songs here.

Counting Crows-- "August and Everything After". Crucial album from a crucial period of my life.

Everything But the Girl-- "Amplified Heart", "Walking Wounded"

Damien Jurado-- "Ghost of David". A few tracks here get me.

Indigo Girls-- Especially the self-titled album and "History of Us".

Van Morrison-- Too many songs to mention.

Morrissey--"Bona Drag". Track: "Late Night Maudlin St."

The Smiths-- Just about anything off of "Hatful of Hollow" and select tracks from "Meat is Murder".

Joni Mitchell-- "Blue"

There are more, but I've said enough. Your turn...

Marillion - Brave

tho some other parts on this CD give me a hard time as well, The Great Escape is the most dramatical and moving piece of music ever. only play it when I'm in that mood, cause I don't want to spoil it. but it hit home every time.

1) Ben Folds - The Luckiest :

Last November during the Leonid meteor shower, I sang this to my girl-friend while both huddled in a warm-blanket alone on a cold and windy mountain-top watching the lights dart across the night sky. I get quite emotional anytime I think about it and just how incredibly right everything felt, and of course everytime I hear this song I think of that moment. Truth be told... I'm actually wiping tears away as I type.

2) Train - Drops of Jupiter :
I can't help but lose it thinking of my GF singing this... all tears of utmost joy


3) Billy Joel - Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel) & The Longest Time :

Once again, songs with personal meanings to my GF and myself.

4) Gordon Lightfoot - Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald & Harry Chapin - Cat in the Cradle :

Great folk songs that remind me of growing up with my Dad.

Loreena McKennitt - Dante's Prayer
Loreena McKennitt - La Serenissima
William Jackson - In the Northeast Kingdom
William Jackson - Columcille
Noir OST2 - Colosseum
Seal - Kiss from a Rose
Blessid Union of Souls - Light in Your Eyes
Ben Folds - Fred Jones Pt.2
J Frank Wilson - Last Kiss
John Lennon - Imagine
John Hiatt - Walking in Memphis
John Hiatt - Have A Little Faith In Me
Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Simon & Garfunkel - Scarborough Fair (Canticle)
Simon & Garfunkel - The Boxer


These don't really have any personal meaning but all are beautiful emotionally charged music.

gorecki - symphony #3 - 1st movement
barber - adagio for strings
beethoven - cavatina from the opus 130 string quartet
albinoni - adagio for strings and organ in g minor

i've also dropped a few tears at the puccini operas i've seen.

i also listen to a lot of other genres besides classical, but classical music gets to my core. there are also a few film scores that can elicit a few tears, but that is another discussion.

A few came to mind. I'm sure there were many more in the past years:

Pink Floyd. `Wish You Were Here`, `Comfortably Numb`.

Tori Amos. `Icicle`, `Cloud on my Tongue`, `Marianne`, `Hey Jupiter`, `Doughnut Song`, `Putting The Damage On`, `Twinkle`. Yeah, I'm a sucker for her voice.

Sarah McLachlan. A few tracks in `Fumbling...`

On a different note, for the first two weeks of owning Placebo's `Without You I'm Nothing` I used to get scared ****less while listening to it. I guess it resonated with what was going on in my life at the time pretty badly, and no, that's not a good thing when Placebo's stuff does that
.


Hey, I may get the Little loaner now! Wicked!

Simon & Garfunkel - For Emily (Wherever I may find her)

Marc Cohn - True Companion

If anyone here has actually found their soulmate like I did then you cannot help but shed a tear over this one.

That's right! Don't be a p*ssy. Tell us which songs make you cry.

Am I the only one that gets a major kick out of the irony of the above post?

Sorry for the perceived thread crap Markl, but the paradox in that statement absolutely cracks me up. I'll remove it if you wish.

By the way, Jackson Browne's "Late for the Sky" does it to me. ( for personal reasons only... I'm no p*ssy...really)

I'm glad to say that it still happens every once in a while.

Nightwish, Sacrament of Wilderness (live).

Heard it many times before, but it caught me off guard the other night. The tears were there before I knew it. There's something about Tarja's voice...it's not for everyone, but if it is for you...
