Some people cry at movies, or are moved by Art, but for me, music has always been able to move me, and certain songs are capable of leaving me in tears.

What are some of your favorite sad songs? Or songs that can make you cry, or at the very least, be on the verge of crying?

I have a few: (quite a few, actually. But I won't list them all.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKQpRgxyyqo In My Life - The Beatles: This is incredibly depressing for me for very personal, very specific reasons that I won't discuss due to being both long and probably uninteresting to all of you. The song can make me cry pretty much as soon as it starts.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dh510D9a_g8 My Mom - Chocolate Genius: While I'm not quite sure how I discovered this song, it's been a staple of my iTunes collection for a while now. The lyrics are about a man who is visiting his mother, who has been diagnosed with Alzeimers. You gotta hear it to really know just how sad it is.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEHTTFOwsDs Yesterday - Atmosphere: While this isn't particularly a sad song, it makes me pretty depressed. But once again, for incredibly long, personal reasons that you guys probably wouldn't care much about

a couple more from me :

dunno if it's just the melody of this song or the lyrics, but this song makes me quite sad. Even though I don't listen to much rap

Great song and it makes me very emotional whenever I play it

Not the biggest Coldplay fan but I always thought this song was one of the most heartfelt songs I've listened to

I personally don't care for the song orthe band, but i would say Everybody Hurts, from REM, is quite possibly the most depressing song iveever heard.

I had Sex, by Lonely Island, because Ive never had it. Oh and this song

Made me sad for the longest time, but then I read that it was about the drummers dad dying and although my parents arent dead I do miss them cus they live in Mexico.

the song is amazingly dark and haunting, so listen to the lyrics... it tells a crazy story
