Just wondered what they are.

Mine are:

Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright
Creep - Radiohead
Not Everybody Has To Imagine - Mitch Benn

The first one coz it's just a beautiful.
The second because it reminds me of a really hard time in my life.
And the third because although he's a comedian, it's a really hard hitting song.
I was listening to Jeff Buckley (at last!) recently.
The entire album made me cry.

So much down syndrome

remember UG Community? thought so.
A lot of later Johnny Cash is very sad and hard-hitting, never made me cry but plenty of times it's brought tears to my eyes.

Creep - Radiohead because it reminds me of a really hard time in my life.

Reminds me of all of my life. Past, present and future.

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley has on occasion when i already feel down
and Scott Kelly's acoustic stuff is like getting hit with an anvil of leaden depression

EDIT: Babe I'm Gonna Leave You by Zep has hit me hard a couple times

The last time I got misty-eyed to a song was to Iron Maiden - Wasted Years. Long story, but cut down to size; I was head over heels for this one girl who didn't feel the same way, the day after rejection and I saw her ice-skating and the sunlight just shined upon her in a way that kinda killed me. ^^ Couple of years ago now, but I'll never forget that moment.
Johnny Cash - Hurt, reminds me of a lot of **** that happened, not drugs, but a lot of other things, eally speaks to me

Metallica - Fade To Black

Jeff Buckly - Hallelujah (sp?)

Has to be:
a) Brothers on a Hotel Bed - Death Cab for cutie
b) Never meant - American football
c) For my father - Andy McKee

a) for the times I spent listening to it with friends
b) for the lyrics - admittedly very high school emo kid but meh, its all good.
c) Whilst when I play it I can't get the feeling into it, he can really make it sing.

So... I wonder how far this thread will go without becoming silly to the extreme?

Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" deserves a mention here...

I was gonna say the Nine Inch Nails version. haha.

Underoath's Too Bright To See, Too Loud To Hear and Desolate Earth, together.

Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees, High and Dry. "It's the best thing that you've ever had..." Gah, that line gets me every time.

That's about it for now. Pretty much most songs that I can classify as beautiful will probably have a similar effect.
Wonderwall - Oasis

this was when i was really down tho.

(No I don't cry every time I hear one of these songs, but at one point or another....)
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools
Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits always pulls at the ol' heartstrings
as does Hurt - Johnny Cash
Rememberance Ballad - Atreyu. I'm not a fan of them but that's one powerful song.
My Sacrifice and One Last Breath - Creed because of things in the past.
The Eels in general with songs like I'm Going to Stop Pretending that I didn't Break Your Heart and It's a Motherf@cker

NIN- Right Where It Belongs
AFI- Morningstar
Birthday Massacre- Movie
The Penny Dreadful- Le Madre Muerta
My Chemical Romance- Cancer- since my Mum got the big C I can't listen to it, I just can't.
Placebo- Pierrot The Clown

However, the song that has me in tears every time is:

InMe- Chamber. It was mine and my ex-girlfriend's song and when they played it live, Dave dedicated it to us. Now whenever I even think about it I'm reminded of how much I still love her.
Angie-The Rolling Stones, I was so down the first time I heard it.

Landslide-The Smashing Pumpkins version
Fall to Pieces-Velvet Revolver
Both remind me of a girl.

oh, and I cried like a baby when I first heard Nirvana's version of "Where Did you Sleep Last Night".

right now, though, it'd be Black by Pearl Jam.

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley gets the obligatory mention.
Track 11 by The Matches made me cry once, but probably had more to do with how I was feeling. It's not even such a sad song.

Songs which I haven't cried at but are nonetheless quite sad:
Untitled - Interpol
Signs, Emma Kate's Accident, Blue Light - Bloc Party
Song to Say Goodbye - Placebo
Cancer - MCR
Everybody Hurts - REM
Nullaby - Denali
Your Algebra - The Shins
Sing - Dresden Dolls
Have to Drive - Amanda Palmer
Machines - Biffy Clyro
Gotta Be Somebody's Blues - Jimmy Eat World
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.

Confused? Good.
