What are some extremely emotional songs on guitar?

I don't necessarily mean emotional on part of the guitarist (ie. bands, vibratto, etc.), but enough to invoke intense emotion in the listener.


For example: The first time I heard the song 'Frances the Mute' by The Mars Volta, I bought an electric guitar and started to play within the week... it just affected me that strongly.

I usually don't listen to emocore that much and sugestting it because it is in the genre EMO makes this kind of Cliché, But Killswitch Engage's My curse had some pretty emotional Guitar parts in it. And i Agree on i cum blood actually:P

Exactly what I was thinking, the one on grace is amazing, but I prefer a live version, Live a l'Oympia is my favourite atm.

That song bought me to tears. Ironically, the part that did so was a sweep-tapping lick. Suck on that, 'shred-has-no-emotion' fools.

I guess I interpret this question differently than a lot of people here...

"Last Kiss" (most well known as performed by pearl jam) is probably what gets me as the saddest song I've ever heard. Just the idea of accidentally killing your love is so heart wrenching...

A studio version of Bold as Love by Jimi Hendrix is the most emotional song for me. In this studio version there's no lyrics/singing, it's just instrumental but the melody just tells a story and I feel like I can relate to every note.

That has been taken down.

You guys got some good tunes in here, but I always thought Tesla's "Song and Emotion" was the best! It alternates between bluesy clean parts and distorted riffs, then builds up to the guitar solo. The lyrics put the icing on the cake.
