    Closing scene of West Side Story: Leonard Bernstein’s score with Natalie Wood’s portrayal reduces me to tears.

    For me it would have to be When I get Where I am Going by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton and the other is The Hand That Rocks the Cradle by Glen Campbell and Steve Wariner. Whenever I hear either of those songs it brings memories of my mother and dad who have both left for a better place.

    or the vocal version if you prefer. For me, the results are the same with either.

    Maybe 'cause it has become THE funeral song, but seeing Vince almost lose it on his own song just hits hard. Patty Loveless pretty much carries him through that verse. Didn't affect his guitar playing though

    +1. So many Chains songs get to me. Layne is so good at allowing the listener inside. So good that it can be unsettling.

    Riding with Private Malone by David Ball. I’m not sure if its meant to be sad but it is to me. Instant tear jerker.
