The card cheat by the Clash get me more.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nail's "Hurt". Fantastic.

 

I agree this was the last song that really blew me away... the video clips of him from his youth when he was on top of the world contrasted with the decay and emptiness of his final days... spooky... http://www.markromanek.com/video/14.html

 

As for the soppy stuff:

 

U2 - The Sweetest Thing

Incubus - I Miss You

Jeff Buckley - Last Goodbye

"The Card Cheat" is beautiful too, but for me there's just something extra-special about "Stay Free".

 

Forgot to mention earlier:

 

- The Smiths "There is a Light that Never Goes Out"

I heard Richard Thompson sing 'Beeswing' a couple of years ago, that nearly always makes me cry a little

Everybody hurts......brings a lump to my throat.

 

Hymn to Her .. The Pretenders

 

I have always loved that song and chose it to be played at my best mates funeral a couple of years ago. The words were just perfect.

 

She will always carry on

Something is lost, something is found

They will keep on speaking her name

Somethings change

Some stay the same.

 

When ever I play/hear it I half cry and half smile thinking about her.

I love a song called "Leave" by Matchbox Twenty, if you get chance listen to it, Its set me off crying more times than I can remember.

 

I cant listen to "good Riddance" by Green Day anymore without bursting into tears, it was played at my best friends funeral, last time I heard it was in a supermarket and i was just sat in the isle crying.

Oxygen by Willy Mason, sad in a way but with a very possitive message.

 

Sad But True by Transplants , but that is more of a personal choice so I don't know if anyone else will agree.

Gotta agree with Johnny Cash "Hurt" - almost every song on that album makes me cry, but that one especially.

 

What I can't understand is why so many people have listed Eric Clapton songs. Totally devoid of any emotional content, as far as I'm aware.

 

But the one which is making me cry the most at the moment isn't actually a song, it's a piece of piano music: Clair de Lune, by Debussy (there's a bastardised version of this in the current Chanel advert featuring Nicole Kidman, but it's not as heart-rending as the piano-only version). It's a piece of music which seems to be both incredibly happy and incredibly sad simultaneously: it feels like it encompasses an entire life.

 

The other song that always touches me also encompasses an entire life, and is one that nobody here is likely to have heard of, by a band that nobody will have heard of: Largelife by Lake of Puppies.

 

I'd better go now. I'm feeling sniffly already.
