I know everybody's going to say this, but Mother by John Lennon makes me so depressed that the last time someone put it on, I got so pissed off that I punched the guy in the face, as it reminds me of both my wife and my mother, who have both passed on.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond by ThisBandShouldNoLongerNeedAnyMoreAddressingThanksToTheLikesOfSillyGirl; more specifically Part IX. Ricky really does pour his heart into his fingers, which in turn create such poignant melodies on his keyboards. At the end when he plays that little bit of 'See Emily Play' I always get a little choked up. For sure one of the most touching pieces of music I've ever heard. heart  

I only just saw this post beatlemaniacs_02_gif ! ! !

I would have thanked it seven times, but I'm being good. Could not agree more! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif paul-mccartney-thumb_gif paul-mccartney-thumb_gif Although it has never actually made me cry, it does touch me very, very deeply, especially that bit. It's such a fitting and perfect and momentous tribute from one sadly deceased and greatly missed member to another. Also, the epicness of the song and generally the whole album makes me want to cry sometimes, because it's so momentous and deeply satisfying that it hurts -- it's almost too perfect.

Anyway, I came here to say that:

I literally blubber my eyes out over this song... so I don't listen to it much.

'These Are The Days Of Our Lives' by Queen also gets to me. Surprisingly, however, it's the guitar solo that really hurts the most.

I am quite an avid listener of the Russian baritone singer Eduard Khil (those of you who are familiar with internet memes might recognise him better as the Trololo guy.) He sang some pretty fantastic songs in his lifetime (aside from Trololo) including the song below called Land Of The Living. It is a tribute to the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and I sometimes get emotional when listening to it.

Here's another moving song of his called Ballad Of A Soldier:

Been meaning to look into Steven Wilson's music. @Beatlebug 

Hummingbird by Wilco is one of the very few songs that is actually able to make me cry. (That and much of the Mother 3 soundtrack)  Hummingbird reminds me a lot of my brother, who lives hundreds of miles away.  I really miss that guy sometimes.

Undisclosed Desires by Muse always makes me cry. I don't know if it's only the music or also the fact the song came on the radio when I received the news of my Granny's death.

Another song is Videotape by Radiohead which I have listened to first only a few days ago. Everything about this song is giving me goosebumps. Especially spine-tingling is the combination between the lyrics and the way the drums suddenly stop near the end of the song. I always have to think of a stopping heartbeat when I hear it.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

There are 2 songs that do it for me. Mike and the Mechanics, The Living Years, brings home to me the loss of my father and not getting the chance to tell him how much he meant to me. The second is You'll never walk alone, not the Gerry and the Pacemakers rendition, but the Shirley Jones offering in Carousel. No idea why, but it gets to me every time I hear it.

Two great songs. I approve. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif
