The title basically says it. Have you ever listened to a song that made you cry, not out of sadness or because the lyrics are about something sad, but just because of its beautifulness?
I just listened to Rodrigo y Gabriela's 11:11 (the last song on the 11:11 album) and almost burst into tears. I'm not even feeling depressed or anything, it's actually quite the opposite, tomorrow's the final day of the crappiest school term I ever had and I'm leaving for Europe on monday for a month . But the music is just so beautiful, it's as if crying is the only thing my body found to express the feeling it triggers...

Did you ever experience something similar / if so, with which song?

Queen- Mother Love

Final song Freddie recorded before his death. He died before he could finish it, so Brian May sings the last verse.

It's heartbreaking.

Viðrar vel til loftárása by Sigur Rós caused one of the most profound emotional experiences of my life.

I've cried to a lot songs, but none have ever hit me as hard as that one.

Phish's Coventry show, where 60,000 people walked 35 miles after abandoning their cars in the face of a police barracade to see the supposed last show, and all of them screaming the finale of Harry Hood. So beautiful.

i never cry to music, but i think hyper chondriac music by muse is probably the most beautiful song i've heard.
one day you will wish you had done a little evil, for a greater good
#13
Elliot Smith - "Between the Bars"
Jeff Buckley - "Lover, You Should've Come Over"
The Antlers - "Two"
Rolling Stones - "As Tears Go By"
Lykke Li - "Tonight (Live Acoustic)" on Youtube

I wouldn't say I cry but they are some truly, beautifully written lyrics.
#14
11:11 is a FANTASTIC cd. But never really cried to music. I'm not judging people who do or anything, just never really been for me.
#15
Never cried to music, but an emotional one is "Don't want to miss a thing" - Aerosmith
Such a great song
^ was said while intoxicated, so don't hold it against me.

I can name albums:

Primordial - to the nameless dead
Altar of plagues - White tomb
Wolves in the throne room - Black cascade and Diadem of 12 stars (mainly the outro on the final track)
Converge - Jane Doe
Fall of efrafa - Inle
Modern life is war - My love, My way

As for songs:

Sculptured - the last track on embodiment
Agalloch - a desolation song, sowilo rune, summerisle reprise
Orchid - and the cat turned to smoke
against me! - searching for a former clarity, 8 full hours of sleep
Converge - wretched world
#17
Stairway to Heaven lololololol!!1!1!

No but really, i'd say that most of the music I listen to, I do it to get that emotional overwhelming effect, so I could name a lot of bands, singers, DJ's, composers, etc.
But lately Philipp Glass' Glassworks Opening and Mad Rush are having that effect on me.
Also, anything by Bedhead, one of the most underrated bands ever...

Ki - Devin Townsend
Heartattack In A Layby - Porcupine Tree

There's been several threads about this already, though.

I've finally started giving him a proper listen and I'm in love so far.

You'll find whisky very different, but try it and you'll grow into it, soon you and whisky are one, but still two, lovers dancing across a frozen lake under moonlight, wrapped in honey and warmth.

#20
I Cum Blood - Cannibal Corpse
Blew Job - Blink 182

But seriously, Fade To Black is closest to making me cry, same with I Won't See You Tonight (Part 1)
#21
The World at Large by Modest Mouse gets me sometimes. Almost brings me to the point of tears.

Even if You're Never Awake by Stars of the Lid is incredibly beautiful. Right around the 3 minute mark is when the melody line kicks in. I can listen to it for hours...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAXyD7lX6VU

Others that are great

Mono no Aware - Hammock
Happiness - Jonsi & Alex
New Animals from the Air - Eluvium
Una Mattina - Ludovico Einaudi
R.I.P. PAUL GILBERT

You will be missed...

I've never cried from a song, In This River by Black Label Society is the closest I ever got. Most depressing song I've ever heard
#26
Alcest's Sur l'Ocean Couleur de Fer is absolutely gorgeous. It's brought tears to my eyes on quite a few occasions.

Anything with a piano, acoustic guitar, and about love.
#28
Golden Hours - Brian Eno
Bruce Springsteen - Streets of Philadelphia
U2 - Kite
Pantera - Hollow
Megadeth - In my Darkest hour
Most things by Nick Drake

They don't make me cry, they just put me in a thoughtful mindset and are powerful songs imo.
Split your lungs with blood and thunder

Break your backs and crack your oars men

Some Protest the Hero stuff is pretty emotion-invoking and so is Hyperdrive by Devin Townsend from Ziltoid the Omniscient (not the new version from Addicted)

I listened to Protest the Hero's Kezia all the way through the other day and lost it as the acoustic guitars kick in at the end of A Plateful of Our Dead.

For You to Know and The Smoke by In Mourning

The second half of Selkies by BTBAM.

Voice of the Soul by Death

I think there's some others, but these are the first couple to come to mind.
#32
Smother Me - The Used
Broken - Seether
A Year From Now - Across Five Aprils

All remind me of the one thing I had to live for.
We are the diamonds that choose to stay coal;
A generation born to witness
The end of the world

#35
"She Who Mars the Skin of Gods" by Protest the Hero
"The Royal We" by Silversun Pickups
"Hljomalind" by Sigur Ros
"Distanced by Dissonance" by Painted in Exile (weird I know )

I remember crying the first time I heard the second half of Selkies (the Endless Obsession)

EDIT:

That album is brilliant. Except I lost it much earlier than you did.

I might also add Exogenesis: Symphony Part 3 (Redemption).
Wave goodbye to the past.
You've got your whole life to lead.

Adagio for Strings doesn't make me cry but it's a very powerful, one of the most powerful ever written IMO. It sends a shiver up my spine every time I hear it.

Chopins Etude 10 number 3 is very powerful as well, he wrote it about his war torn homeland that he could not return to. He left behind everything and he was never able to see his relatives and friends ever again. It has a feel of nostalgia with sadness intertwined with a chaotic feel in the middle of the song.

I never get emotional when I listen to music, but I actually embarrass myself when I perform it usually.

I guess the closest would be Sigur Ros though. I always imagine really pretty images when I listen to them.
#39
Last to Know by Three Days Grace, it came out like a week after my ex-gf dumped me, the song speaks by itself... But it doesn't really fit in the "beautiful songs that made me cry out of beautifulness" category
