    Achy Breaky Heart ... wait, you mean good, healthy crying and not tears of pain?

    Hmm ... in that case ... Bright Eyes' "Walk Away" ... "Hallelujah" (as long as it isn't sung by an American Idol contestant)

    One of the most obvious choices I would think  'Amazing Grace' and 'Ave Maria' sung by Pavarotti. I also agree with  Eternallyte on Creed's 'Six Feet From The Edge' .zs

    I don't have a song that makes me cry but the latest song that seems to hit a nerve with me is Handlebars by Flobots.

      I've never heard that one, but I don't think I should listen to it - I wanted to cry when I read your description, and I have a neice named Alyssa.

    Yesterday i listened a folk song that moved me...To my mind any song that reflects the same pain that the listener bears make them wanna cry.

    "This Womans Work" by Kate Bush always used to do it for me.  I think I also cried the first time I heard James Blunt's "Goodbye My Lover", but now I don't.

    Music is very powerful, and it all depends on the circumstances as to how it will affect us.  That's some of the beauty of it.  It can be anything to anyone yet never the same to everyone.

    humm the song that made me cry? "Someday" by nina, well i really like the song because it reflects the scene of a broken hearted person and showing that his/she's not giving up and still hoping that someday some ones gonna love him/her...

    hey guys if you have the time, please do watch my first music video on youtube. Just search for 123 by Junior Kilat. us the students and graduates of the IAFT made it. Feel free to post comments as well. I’d be happy to see what you think of it.
