      That was one of the songs to inspire my novel Letting Go - I put that in as part of the soundtrack I created for HP.

    Yes.  In fact a friend of mine sent me a YouTube video today which made me cry.   It's really beautiful - Auld Lang Syne.

    Everytime You Go Away by Paul Young

    This was the song from Planes, Trains and Automobiles when John Candy and Steve Martin walk down the street at the end of the movie, carrying the infamous chest.  I'm a 35 year old guy and I cry like a child evety time!!

    Four songs come to mind.

    Daddy don't you walk so fast by Wayne Newton

    Honey   by
    Bobby Goldsboro

    He stopped loving her today by George Jones

    another by George Jones is called     The grand tour.

    Wow, good question.
    There is one that I have been able to relate to so well that tugs at my heart strings and makes me cry everytime is:

    Chicago- Will You Still Love Me


    Lee Greenwood- God Bless The USA

    It may be corny to some but this one gives me chills whenever I hear it. Its a reminder of the worst day I have ever been witness to, 9/11/01. It is something that will always stay with me.

    Songs that get me:

    Braveheart song
    100 Years
    Daisy a Day
    Where are You Going, My Little One (Turn Around)
    How Can I Help You Say Goodbye (by Reba)

    If You Get There Before I Do (This one really turns on the waterworks!!)

    Another one that always makes me cry is Rainy Night in GA.

    I as a man will never admit I cry. But I will say that Stevie Wonders " Love is in need of Love Today ", gets me kinda choked up ! If this song does not move you , you don't have a pulse !

    My first year teaching music I decided I was going to have a chorus. A bunch of fourth and fifth graders signed up and we were soon asked to perform a farewell song to all fifth graders that were graduating to middle school that year. I picked "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler. We were unable to perform the song because the chorus girls kept on crying and SOBBING!!!

    Talk about a tear jerker!!!

    "I Can Hear Your Voice" performed by Michael W. Smith on the Worship Again Album ushers in the Holy Spirit and moves me- I find myself visualize the whole beautiful experience of seeing my baby girl for the first time as she touched my lips when I held her in my arms. When I let go and Let God, I am purified by the touch of this Song.  It's effect is Powerful.

    I can not get through Cats in the Cradle by Harry Chapin, without sobbing.  I have to change it if I am driving.  The song makes me want to rush home and spend time with my children before it is to late.  I'm about to cry now...

    The Star Spangled Banner brings me to tears of pride.

    "Dance with My Father" by Luther Vandross.

    "Puff the Magic Dragon"  as a child I cried because the dragon was going to be lonesome...as an adult, I cry for the loss of childhood innocence and imagination.

    -2nd movement of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto

    I loved "Forever" by the Beach Boys. When I saw it on Full House I didn't know it was by them, but I still love that song. "I'll Be There" is another one, especially after Michael Jackson died there was a State Farm commercial and felt myself almost breaking down but I'm glad I didn't. For me it's usually about the context of hearing a certain song rather than the song itself.

    Ya, anytime I am going through anything really negative in my life, I always feel like lyrics in certain songs are singing directly to me. For instance strangely "So Lonely" by the Police really messed with me after me and my wife broke up.

    I really should start finding out which those songs were.
