This and That--sad songs

Today, NPR on All Songs Considered asks the question:
What songs make you cry?

In the article they have a small sampling of the 7000 answers they received.
They did mention
the music that gets us weeping can have as much, or more, to do with association than with composition.

So it can be any song that touches  us in some way.
I've asked my friends and am waiting for their answers.
Now I'm asking you....
what songs make you cry?

Me?
Lots probably, but this one especially--- makes me think of my mom and dad.
I get teary eyed-- in a sad, but good way.





So, what songs make you cry?

Oh, man! What a loaded question!
'In the Garden' ... this hymn was played at my mother-in-law's funeral and it always bring tear to my eye when we sing it in church service.
'America the Beautiful' - IMHO it really should be our national anthem

I could go on, but I think it would be the hormones taking over ... we old ladies cry at the drop of a hat, right?
