Björk's Joga, especially from her Live at the Royal Opera House DVD, it's just achingly beautiful. Coltrane's Alabama Weather Report's Cannonball

"I've Never Been to Me" by Charlene
Quote:
Oh, I've been to Niece and the Isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht I've moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things that a woman ain't supposed to see I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

"Lover Man" by Charlie Parker. He was going through withdrawls from heroin while he recorded it, and got so massively drunk that a couple of guys had to hold him up to the microphone so he could play. He pours his heart and soul into it.

"Hurt" done by Johnny Cash. Great song to begin, made even better by Cash. I listened to it a lot after my grandpa and my uncle died.

It's never driven me to tears that I can recall, but Just Friends always stuns me speechless for the first 30 seconds or so from that opening riff. It just blows me away every time.

+1 Pachelbel's Canon, Barber's Adagio for Strings. Romeo and Juliet by Dre Straits I don't know that any of these songs make me cry, but they certainly put me in the mind to drink and stare into my glass.

Linda Ronstadt's "Long Long Time" can mess me up on occasion, as can the last verse of "Danny Boy"

This one has made me cry in the past:

"For crying out loud", Lloyd Cole

These have made me emotional:

"Como te extraño mi amor", by Cafe Tacuba.
"Entre Amos et Amsterdam", Les Innocents
"L'autre Finistère", Les Innocents
"Les vieux", Jacques Brel
"Wie 'ne blaue Ballon", BAP
"Do jeht ming Frau", BAP

And others.

Wooden Ships is powerful, but yeah, Helplessly Hoping is better. The first time I heard that live (CSN in 2003 or '04) I almost cried. Fucking beautiful. Stephen Stills is such a good songwriter.

Holy shit, he was sloshed while playing this? I wish I could do that.

Don't go away and Wonderwall by Oasis have brought me to tears. I have never cried to True by Spandau ballet, but it does almost bring me to tears and has a special place in my heart. I once listened tot hat song for over 4 hours straight.

Do you mean straight, as in not f'd up? Or straight as in consecutively? Two entirely different things. And I need to know before I form an opinion of you.

The Rising - Bruce Springsteen

Pretty Angry - Blues Traveler


Not that I cry during songs, but if I WERE to cry during songs, those two would do it to me...or something.
