    There's a few that have that effect on me:
    Point Blank / Springsteen
    The Best of Everything / Tom Petty
    Angel Dream No 2 / Tom Petty
    Fiddlers Green / The Tragically Hip

    There's a line in Me & Bobby McGee that always gets me,......
    I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday

    More poignant than ever after losing mt dad earlier this year.....

    The: "What can I tell you, my brother..." line always gets to me.

    I don't quite know how he can sing this one live. It just breaks me every time. The trumpet coming in, the cardinal line, and of course "and He takes and He takes and He takes..."

    This one's less tragic, but still the beauty of the instrumentation tugs at however many
    of my heart's strings are left.
    Starts with a lengthy spoken introduction to the song, but it's worth hearing in full.
    The voice is fragile, but it kinda suits the lyrics.

    The lyrics of this...

    One of his twin sons died during the writing of this album.

    Same here, I played bass drum for the local band for a few years, so i'm steeled to most of the sets, but Scotland the Brave is still a strong pull.

    This one cause i used to listen to it before mom died of cancer at 47 years of age back in 1990

    This one when life feels down or someone else does and i play it for them

    This one when you loose a chic in your life and you want her to know how much she means to you

    What an amazing thread. A testament to the power of music. For me, it's the art form that cuts to the bone the quickest.

    Chris De Burgh: "Lady in Red". I hate '80s music for the most part (Prince a massive exception), but this was the song that always made my mom cry when I was a kid. Never knew why until I found out they lost their middle child on delivery, and this song was playing on the radio as they drove in. Kinda changes the lyrics' meanings.

    Roy Buchanan: "The Messiah Will Come Again". It's hard to make people cry without words, but this does it for me. Sends chills up my spine. It's eerie and beautiful and amazing.

    Funkadelic: "Maggot Brain". Just the raw emotion ahead of technique, but still creating something almost impossible for anyone else to play. Especially poignant when you learn that the guitar player, Eddie Hazel, died poor and unrecognized years later.

    I'm more familiar with the pre_Schenker UFO version. Love Pete's bass on this one.

    Under Pressure, pretty silly but it chokes me up when I hear those two singing together.

    Bowies Heroes.

    The Bing Bong song from the movie Inside Out.

    A few minutes ago I was extolling the virtues of the Band to a fella I work with, who was telling me that Vangelis were the epitome of good seventies music.. bringing in my Last Waltz DVD for him next shift..

    And yes, this song kills me every time..
