I don't just mean sad songs.

There are some songs that, whenever I hear them, bring a tear to my eye. I don't know why, they're not linked to any particular emotional event in my life. There's just something about them that triggers an emotional reaction.

Examples I can think of at the moment are:

Pale Blue Eyes - VU
Protection - Massive Attack
Where Do we Go Now But Nowhere - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Little Miss Divinity - FSOL

Does anyone else have this reaction?

Yo La Tengo - Stockholm Syndrome
Red House Painters - Katy Song

I don't actually cry, but they make me so damn sad I just don't listen to them anymore.

Katy song is quite a cool tune. It doesn't make me cry because I never cry. I have a heart made of stone.

I am still working on turning my heart to stone. Not quite there yet. It is black as night, though.

I also forgot one song that actually did make me cry when I first realized what the lyrics were saying:

George Jones - He Stopped Loving Her Today

I probably heard my pop play that song a billion times before I realized the poor bastard died.

Come to think of it, I pretty much like the majority of the songs on the album that one comes from. Gosh, I haven't listened to it since the early 90's, when it first came out. Red house Painters always make me think of the newly-reformed American Music Club, another band that I used to listen to a lot.

American Music Club is one of my all time favorite bands. I think sometimes I got musically stuck in the mid to late 90's. I like lots of new stuff, but the things that are dear to me are mostly 10+ years old.

good call.

I think that I'm more partial to DCD's Severance, but that may fall under the "songs that give you goosebumps" thread.

all of the songs on A Silver Mt Zion's Horses in the Sky album are so hauntingly beautiful that they have the potential for optic lubrication.

I'm going to listen to it right now, and cry, you bastard.

I ought to give those records a good dusting and a fresh listen again. American Music Club could (can?) write some pretty dark songs disguised as poor lost little lambs trying to find mummy in the bush.

Well put, and very true. A lyrically stunning band, in my opinion. I even liked the solo Mark Eitzel stuff, but not quite as impressive as the band.
