Ok - here it is...

"Vincent" by Don McLean.   I also get a little choked up by Julio Iglesias' version of the same song.

One that most folks here have never heard. It's by a band called Adam Again, and the song is "You Can Fall in Love". I can't tell you how many times this song has reduced me to a blubbering mess. Not that that's a bad thing. I feel much better after a good cry.  ::)

Anything by Barbara Streisand not only reduces me to tears but also gives me the bird flu and mad cow disease.....and a stroke.

Well spoken, my friend. My distaste for Ms Streisand's music is well known where I work. During Christmas her inane version of Jingle Bells is enough to make me run out of the store screaming. Once a good friend of mine found an 8 track tape copy of one of her Christmas albums and left it on my desk! The following Christmas the same jokester left a framed 11"x14" photo of her on my desk!!  ::)

That is uncanny that you said that!! I was going to say more about Jingle Bells but I thought I had said enough. My mother had that on one of her Christmas compliations as a kid and I swear on everything I think it gave me panic attacks. While I'm a huge Christmas fan, I'm fairly sure that song could suck the life out of every elf in the North Pole.

I swear on my grandmother's nativity scene........that song is 100% pure concentrated evil. It's like the "Anti-Christmas".

My favorite movie of all time is the movie musical Scrooge, w/Albert Finney. Many of the songs stir my soul & reduce me to tears.

Joey Ramone's version of "What a Wonderful World" makes me cry, even when I just think about it. It is so beautiful and goes right to my heart. And it came out at such a sad time.
Also- Mendelssohn 5- Reformation makes me weep openly. I can no longer listen to it while I'm driving because it overwhelms me. Ahhhh soooooo wonderful  :)

It's like you looked into my soul before you posted. Streisand is pure, unadulterated evil.
