    I can't see 'em comin down my eyes
    So I gotta make the song cry
    I can't see 'em comin down my eyes
    So I gotta let the song cry


    A face of stone, was shocked on the other end of the phone
    Word back home is that you had a special friend
    So what was oh so special then?
    You have given away without gettin at me
    That's your fault, how many times you forgiven me?
    How was I to know that you was plain sick of me?
    I know the way a nigga livin was whack
    But you don't get a nigga back like that!
    Shit I'm a man with pride, you don't do shit like that
    You don't just pick up and leave and leave me sick like that
    You don't throw away what we had, just like that
    I was just fuckin them girls, I was gon' get right back
    They say you can't turn a bad girl good
    But once a good girl's goin bad, she's gone forever..
    And more forever
    Shit I gotta live with the fact I did you wrong forever



    I can't see 'em comin down my eyes
    So I gotta make the song cry
    I can't see 'em comin down my eyes
    So I gotta let the song cry

    I don't ever want to meet the person who cries over that one.

    Barber's Adagio for Strings.

    This is the first one I've even vaguely understood getting choked up about.


    This performance of Biko by Peter Gabriel makes me a bit misty-eyed.

    Doesn't make me cry, but Billy Joel's "Piano Man" gets to me in a sad way.

    Charles Aznavour's Yesterday, When I Was Young is a song that the term "bittersweet" doesn't even begin to describe. Give it a listen.

    No matter how many wonderful accomplishments one may claim, this song will simply remind you of the irony of time wasted and opportunities missed. The song has always been a favorite of mine. Surprisingly, it was used in the ending scene of a critically acclaimed, but largely unnoticed film, Hustle with Burt Reynolds and Catherine Deneuve.

    Interestingly, Roy Clark recorded a touching version of the song as well.

    Haven't cried to it (recently), but Seasons In The Sun by Terry Jack (really aging myself here), has always made me sad.

    Ryan Adams "Rock N Roll." When the answering message from then girlfriend Parker Posey starts playing always gives me pause.

    It doesn't make me cry but Citizen Cope's "Holdin On" always make think of a former gf.

    Christ I need a shot of Maker's to man this post up a bit, oh and Conne, see a shrink.

    Barber's Adagio for Strings.

    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.


    That was in Platoon, and I still remember watching it when I was about 12, then walking down to my middle school on a warmish breezy weekend day with really dark overcast clouds that later rained, wandering around the dry grass of the neglected part of the grounds, and getting very depressed thinking about the movie and the song (piece, whatever). I might have sort of cried, I can't remember. Adagio still puts me in that place, in that mood.

    --

    I actually came to this thread in the hope someone could think of a song I heard - all I can give you is that it is extremely similar to "Right Down the Line" by Gerry Rafferty, from the same era, same semi-happy, semi-depressing type of sound, piano, guitars, mellow vocals... It's driving me crazy right now. Next time the tune pops into my head I will sing it or something and record it so I will have a little more to go on.

    I didn't know about the platoon connection until last year! It was on the first CD of classical music I ever bought and I remember listening to it at about 9 or 10 to go to sleep. When I was 12 or 13, I would get all emo about girls and go walk in the cemetery next to my house with that on my Discman.

    Not really a song but the UEFA Champions League Anthem always brings a tear to my I. Brings back memories of 05 I suppose.

    Then this might work for you too.
