Is there a song that makes you tear up everytime you hear it?

I am an avid classic rock fan and for whatever reason Bob Seger's "Against the Wind" hits me pretty emotionally everytime I hear it. Not like I bawl or anything, but you know, just a good sad song. Such a fantastic song.

Anyone else have a song like that for them?

This song has a lot of meaning for me. Hits home on a couple of real personal notes. Not going to go into it, but in the past couple of years, I've only listened to it exactly 5 times. Thanks to this thread...now 6.

Let me preface by saying no homo. Although after posting ths song my homo status will be up for debate.

Makes me think about my two sons every time I hear it.

Classic rock definitely had it's share of sad songs, mostly in the 70s. The 50s had it's share but most of those were too cheesy to be tear inducing. Same with stuff like Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car"; depressing, but not tearful.

Of the 70s ones, "Run Joey Run" by David Geddes."Billy, Don't Be a Hero" by Paper Lace were definitely depression fests. As far as true tear jerkers though, I'd go with "Honey" (mentioned above), "Blind Man in the Bleachers" by Kenny Starr and "Wildfire" by Michael Martin Murphey (probably the saddest of the bunch).

But even those don't hold a candle to two modern songs...

The first one...

Son house - death letter

That old blues time period was some of the saddest, terrifying music ever made.
