There's not a dry eye around here..

These heart piercing songs have been known to cause a few tears to be shed in the company of friends
1Dire Straits
Brothers in Arms

Simply one of the most emotional songs ever written and it's meaning can be either very personal or very universal depending on your perspective...Mark Knopfler is overcome with emotion while performing this version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vUDmFjWgVo
2Tiki Taane
Nana's Song

A very deep and emotional song that doesn't have any lyrics it's just a tribute to Tiki's grandmother. The evocative sound of guitar and female wailing is absolutely heart piercing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9sV61X5ruo. Prepare to be moved.
3Kashiwa Daisuke

Program music is a piece of art that has a very emotional core and you just get lost in the atmosphere of this thing.
4Johnny Cash

Some people may argue the NIN version is the definitive one, but for me the video that Johnny Cash released with this song is just heartbreaking.
5Sigur Ros
Untitled 3

Of all the beautiful songs Sigur Ros have, and those are many, there's only two that have actually made these eyes swell up. One was Ny Batteri and the other is this one. The climax is the kicker.
6The Gathering
Like Fountains

Leave it to Anneke to bring a flicker of optimism to an otherwise desolate song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nOPWW9tqZE

The live version just blew me away https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Upoyl7214HA
8Jeff Buckley

Hard to narrow down to one JB song but I find Hallelujah too cold and distant. This one runs the gamut of all Jeff's emotional tendencies, from tenderness to anger to pure emotion of wailing. This live version is my favourite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjO4IenAyUw
9Lover, You Should've Come Over

Ok I lied, one more Jeff Buckley song. This one just hits all the right soft spots. If you don't feel any kind of emotion when he sings "a kingdom for a kiss upon your shoulder" you should check your pulse..you might be dead.
10Fat Freddy's Drop

Hollie Smith, the petite white skinned Kiwi girl with the voice of a Black soul singer takes this song to another level and it oozes emotion from first to last.
11Laura Stevenson
Every Tense

I'm a sucker for this kind of blend of pastoral music with ethereal female vocals..
12Alice In Chains

Nutshell is my fav AIC song. It hits just the right balance, uplifting yet sombre at the same time.
You and Yours

Somewhere in the middle of Cloudkicker's uplifting "Let Yourself Be Huge" I was stopped in my tracks by this track and its' hypnotizing melody just floored me.
14Depeche Mode
The Things You Said

Of all the Mode tracks, this one has an urgency to it that really hits me.
15Porcupine Tree
Russia on Ice

One of PT's finest and arguably their most emotional next to I Drive the Hearse, Heartattack in a Layby, Collapse The Light Into Earth.
16King Crimson

When other prog bands like Yes were riding mushroom trips to places more rooted in fantasy and optimism, King Crimson unleashed Red, an album that was grounded on a more gritty and emotional level.

That ending gives the chills
Pillar Of Davidson

Live's masterpiece and a song which the music and lyrics both feed each other and it's subject matter is so earnestly sung that you can't believe how good this band could be when they wanted to be.
19Pink Floyd

Could've put Shine On here too
Wings for Marie

10 years later, this is now without question Tool's finest moment. The one-two suite of Wings and 10,000 days is so much more human than anything else they've done and as cliched as it's become to flame Tool fans for being so "elitist", if you took away everything they've ever done before this song you cannot deny how powerful this song is.
