    All those songs that those people are telling me about touch me, but not enough to make me cry, now this song called “holes in the floor of heaven” written by steve wariner, on the other hand, makes me sob for a half an hour. Try to listen to it, bet you won’t even make it through the begging without even one tear. In fact, I just listened to it a couple of minutes ago and am crying right now. :(

      have you ever heard the songs, Don’t cry daddy by Elvis and Billy and Sue by B.J. Thomas?
      they always make me cry when I hear them played on the radio.

    I’ve read through this entire stream, every comment made, every song listed, and not one of them touches me or is as sad as ‘Famous Final Scene’ by Bob Seger. Think I’m lying? Give it a listen!

    Sisters of Mercy
    Dance Me to the End of Love
    A Thousand Kisses Deep

    Fields of Gold??

    i think that : im ok by christina agularia : should be on the list

    I think the songs that everyone listed would make the perfect sad songs collection. Personally with me, I found that I associate songs with certain things and events that happened in my life, and crap I had to go through. I’m sure there are other people like that too. So looking at certain songs from that view point, I can understand how a song can make someone cry, but not the next person. But that is just my view point. Also, how about:

    Nickelback – Lullaby
    Adele – Set Fire To The Rain
    The Connells – 74 75
    Backstreet Boys – Incomplete
    Hoobastank – The Reason
    Kenny Loggins – Meet Me Halfway
    James Arthur – Impossible
    The Mission UK – Butterfly On A Wheel
    Staind – It’s Been A While
    Staind – So Far Away
    Counting Crows – A Long December
    David Grey – The One I Love
    Pink – Try
    O Town – All or Nothing
    Passenger – Let Her Go
    Pat Benatar – We Belong
    Peter Gabriel – I Grieve
    Phil Collins – Against The Odds
    Prime Circle – Turning In My Sleep
    Prime Circle – What I’ve Become
    Reamonn – Supergirl
    Richard Marx – Hold On To The Nights
    Bruno Mars – Grenade
    Heart – Alone
