    For me it’s not the lyrics, it’s how beautifully they are sang and these two brings me to tears.

    Kate Voegele – Hallelujah

    “Somewhere out there” always made me cry as a kid. It was in the movie “An American Tale”, you know, the one with Fievel the mouse? The waterworks didn’t seem to stop.
    Also, “Right Here Waiting” by Richard Marx. Quite sad…always makes my sister cry :,(

      • LoLo

        These are not “classic songs” which the category states. They may be tear jerkers but are too new to be in this category.

  • LoLo

    Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks it’s about someone dying & saying goodbye to family & friends & Everything I Own by Bread about the singers deceased father. Both, get me every time.
