    There have been so many 'tearjerkers' through the years! Those that spring to mind:

    Free Will and Testament - Robert Wyatt
    Sound & Vision - David Bowie
    Moments of Pleasure - Kate Bush
    Run Run Se Fue P'al Norte - Violeta Parra
    Lonely Woman - Ornette Coleman
    West End Blues - Louis Armstrong
    Julia - The Beatles
    Girl - The Beatles
    Piazza Grande - Lucio Dalla
    Everything Merges With the Night - Brian Eno

    Could keep going on really, left them at ten...

    For me it's Julie With... from that record, as well as By This River.

    Please do not ask my why or indeed mock me but 'Hunted by a Freak' by Mowai gets me. I haven't heard it since the last ATP festival.

    Also, if the wind is blowing in the right direction a few tunes from 'Everybody Digs Bill Evans' can do it for me too.

    :edit: Father and Son by Cat Stevens.

    chartz If it’s broke fix it!

    I was at a cremation ceremony yesterday and they played various sorts of musics.
    But the one that made me shiver, almost cry was Still Loving You.

    What a great song this is.

    And yet the sound system was so bad.

    Motorcycle Emptiness - Manics , long story but it reminds me of my Dad

    Fade into you - Mazzy Star, has always been a fave tune of mine, two years ago when my wife's Dad was terminally ill in hospital this was playing on the radio as he passed away, can't listen to it now without blubbering

    June Tabor's version is the one for me. I haven't heard a recorded version by Eric Bogle but he used to do a good one live. Good song.

    I played 'Bailero' by Frederica von Stade at the weekend, and was in absolute floods.

    Over Time by Lucinda Williams. Heart-breakingly sad.

    Have you heard Kiri Te Kanawa's take? I first heard it whilst watching a NZ film many years back. Perfect accompaniment for the scene and storyline and indelibly etched into my brain. Naturally I sought out the CD at the time.
