    What music have you been so moved by thats its made you cry?

    (so how many men will admit to that?)

    The first time i heard the following songs i was moved to tears:

    Londons Calling - The Clash
    Time/Great Gig In The Sky - Pink Floyd
    The entire HATS album by The Blue Nile (still makes me well up now and i've played it twice a week for 15 years :) )
    Sugar - Tori Amos
    The Scientist (live) - from Coldplay 2003
    I Cant Make You Love Me - George Michael (for reasons i wont go into :D )

    That would be the one that probably got me moved me the most (makes the original much more powerful too) along with "Death or Glory" as it was covered by The Clash. To be honest I can't remember the last time I cried though... :)

    I have a pretty rare CD containing the soundtrack from the film Steel Magnolias.
    I'm not a fan of the film, but the CD is the most moving and endlessly listenable peice I have ever listened to.

    Whenever I've played it to anyone, the room goes silent... and at the end there's a collective sigh and an emotional silence. The effect it has on you is quite weird, and I havn't brought myself to listen to it for while.

    I find that anything by Geri Halliwell or Blazing Squad is likely to upset me to the point of tears!

    Watched James Blunt play 'Goodbye my lover' on Later with Jools Holland, and that brought a tear to my eye. Great song, and album it comes from.

    A Case of You - Joni Mitchell ( from Blue ) Caused spontaneous blubbing on first hearing. One of the most honest songs I've ever heard.

    In My Life - The Beatles, Lennon had just been murdered and I was drunk and maudling - remembering all the happy times spent listening to them - heard this song and floodgates opened.

    Either of these songs can still set me of, if caught unawares and feeling down.

    Old Shep - Elvis Presley made me cry when I was a bairn, though I doubt it would now. Still I daresay I would be best to avoid this song at the death of one of my dogs :(

    Something I can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails

    There are loads of songs that I find very moving but this one always strikes a chord for me because of what was (and still is) happening in my life the first time I heard it. It always brings tears to my eyes.

    Actually when I think about it, the score to the Seven Wonders of the Industrial World was pretty emotional although I think in part that was because it was normally accompanied on screen by the sort of sacrifice that makes you realise that you are in fact a coward of epic proportions. The program on the london Sewer system with Humphrey Basiljet had a superb piece at the end with the music when it made it clear the man basically built large parts of modern London.
