    Day in the life of a tree by the Beach Boys. I always hear it as a chronical of Brian's mental decline.

    This is where I roll out my 'classical music favourite version theory'. I believe, for most people, the first version of a classical piece they hear tends to be the one that becomes their favourite, regardless of how many other interpretations subsequently heard. In my case, the von Stade version of Bailero was the first one I heard, and even though I have heard other, perhaps more highly regarded versions (Te Kanawa, Davrath) it remains my favourite.

    Bob Mould - Lonely Afternoon
    Husker Du - Hardly Getting Over It
    Jackson Browne - The Load-out/Stay
    Moody Blues - Never thought I'd live to be a hundred (particularly poignant now as I'm fighting cancer!)

    Edit: Neil Young - Unknown Legend

    Just off the top of my head . . .

    And make of this what you may, but Taps gets me EVERY time. Made it VERY difficult to present the flag to the next of kin at military funerals, even if you almost never know the person you're presenting it to.

    One of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written. The string crescendo in the last verse gets me every time.

    I always find this moving - Ewan McColl song but the Unthanks' version is beautiful:

    And this gets me in the feels every time as it reminds me of an ex:

    This, guaranteed to make me well up:

    Seeker_UK I had amnesia once or twice...

    I'll add "Where are we now?" by Bowie.

    It's a fairly sad song about times past but it's the last part

    "As long as there's sun
    As long as there's sun
    As long as there's rain
    As long as there's rain
    As long as there's fire
    As long as there's fire
    As long as there's me
    As long as there's you

    That chokes me up for a number of reasons.

    She called it our song, and I missed the point.
