What was the last song you heard that brought you to tears?

Mine would have to be the stunning hauntingly beautiful Holocaust by Big Star.

Your eyes are almost dead
Can't get out of bed
And you can't sleep
You're sitting down to dress
And you're a mess
You look in the mirror
You look in your eyes
Say you realize
Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes
As far as they can,
They don't just care.
They stood on the stairs
Laughing at your errors
Your mother's dead
She said, "Don't be afraid."
Your mother's dead
You're on your own
She's in her bed
Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care
You're a wasted face
You're a sad-eyed lie
You're a holocaust.

I love this song, and I listened to it after I met the girl in my avatar.

The song "Liquid Diamonds" by Tori Amos, usually doesn't bring me to tears, but when she performed it live, it was just so beautiful that it did.

Surrender then start you engines
You'll konw quite soon what me mistake
Was
For those on horseback or dog sled
You turn on at the bend in the road
I hear she still grants forgivenesss
Although I willingly forgot her
The offering is molasses and you say
I guess I'm an underwater thing so I
Guess I can't take it personally
I guess I'm an underwater thing I'm
Liquid running
There's a sea secret in me
It's plain to see it is rising
But I must be flowing liquid diamonds
Calling for my soul
At the corners of the world
I know she's playing poker with the rest of the stragglers
Calling for my sould at the corners of the world
I know she's playing poker
And if your friends don't come back to you
And you know this is madness
A lilac mess in your prom dress
And you say
I guess I'm and underwater thing

Televators from Henry Fonda.

But lot's of songs affect me emotionally, if they send a shiver up my spine as I'm listening it's good.

Any song by RATM sends shivers up my spine. They're the only band I listen to that does that everytime I hear them.

That Coldplay song ... God put a smile on your face, or something like that. Saw them live this summer, it was fucking beautiful. I didn't cry or anything, but I do believe I shed a tear or two.
