Have you ever cried because a song was THAT good?

The one that consistently gets me is 'Unrest in the House of Light' (3). The specific line is the one in which Light yells at Megaman 'You are all that I have left!'

It's such a psychologically deep song...

Oh hell ya. That who album is just gushing with emotion.

The end of "Sons of Fate" is just epic and beautiful. When Megaman yells "The Fight of Protomaaaaaaann!" as the Humans sing behind him.

Anyone who loves Megaman and rock n roll owes it to themselves to listen to The Protomen album.

I get choked up because of The Stand because I empathize with Protoman's feelings every single day.

You bastards.

It's probably for the best that I've never actually had the chance to play Skies of Arcadia. This track is bad enough as it is; it'd be ten times worse when combined with the feeling of "This game that you really enjoyed is now over."

EDIT: Also, if they'd only played the five minutes that had

in it when I went to see the Transformers movie, I would not have asked for a refund.

Oh yes, I've gotten teary eyed at this track myself, I've always been a MASSIVE fan of that game and its music. I highly suggest getting a copy for your Dreamcast or Gamecube. Seriously, it's worth it.

Hans Zimmer has a way of making me well up with some of his film scores. I can think of key moments in the Lion King and Pirates of the Caribbean and plenty of his other works. He has a very moving style.

Double post... sorry; anyone else find the scoring in Inception alone worth the price of admission? I have a theory that the entire score was an exercise in climax and suspension for the ending which resolved in some of the most tender, intimate, and vulnerable sounds ever put on film. I actually bawled at the ending second time I saw it.

This thread reminded me that I had Awesome God on my computer. Had to play through that a few times for good measure.

(Where I first heard Awesome God: http://sweetraptorjesus2.ytmnd.com/)

Now, there are a few songs that have made me teary-eyed for sure, and a many more I don't quite remember how much they impacted me, but that have definitely struck a powerful chord. Was it "just because they were that good"? Well, they're all incredible songs I hold in very high regard, so maybe, but a lot of what we feel about music is the thoughts and feelings we associate with it, so maybe that's not an easy way to look at it.

The Latter - Songs that make me emotional:

Lithium Flower ~Yoko Kanno with Scott Matthew

Divenire ~Ludovico Einaudi

Amazing ~Andy Hunter

A Watchful Guardian ~Hans Zimmer

Hunger & Leave No Man Behind ~Hans Zimmer (also off Black Hawk Down, Deniz Prigent's Gorto A Ran, with Lisa Gerard) - Ya know what, just the whole score. One of Zimmer's best and most emotional.

1+1=3 & Poem ~LoLo

The Former - Songs that have made me teary [at least]:

Translucent ~Andy Hunter

Lifelight ~Andy Hunter

A Dark Knight ~Hans Zimmer (Find it in your music library, there's no excuse not to own it, and go to the 7 minute mark and just listen to the next minute and a half of the song, it's beautifully tragic and heroic, simultaneously new and reminiscent of the classic Shirley Walker themes. Incredible.)

Blue ~Yoko Kanno & the Seatbelts with Mai Yamane

Earthman ~Poets & Pornstars

I could go on and list everything Kanno and Zimmer have ever done, but that wouldn't be a productive use of time. Their stuff is amazing, and more of it that I can list is incredibly powerful. Instead I'll just give you,

The Be-All-End-All of Emotional Music:

Space Lion ~Yoko Kanno & the Seatbelts

Anyone who can listen to Space Lion and not tear up is dead inside. Period.

P.S. Not really, you still have a heart.

P.P.S. But no, dead inside.

adagio for strings.

....THIS.

Although, some context may help explain. Despite my usual lurker-tendencies, I will rarely post to mention the awesome emotionality of Homeworld. if you've played it, you know what I mean. If not, I don't want to spoil it.

The buildup/crescendo from 6:00 to 7:00 pushed me over the edge(gameplay context included). To this very day, undoubtedly due to that experience, Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings/Agnus Dei is bar none my favorite piece of music. ever.

Also, the ending to Chrono Trigger.

That moment, when an all-too-familiar theme becomes something totally new, and EPIC(at 0.47), after everything I'd been through in that game, was what totally brought on the waterworks.

Maybe I'm a sissy, or maybe these people are truly masters of their art. I tend to think the latter.

EDIT:

also THIS:

The ending to MGS3. the part starting at 8:20 did it for me.

I've lost count on the Hans Zimmer praises, but I also find his music moving.

Honestly though, the four songs that currently make me look away from people and try to act tough have been:

Muse's "Invincible" (If I ever make a movie for my comic, this would be the scene where all the heroes die, despite working together).

Yanni's "Standing in Motion" (This is more like pumped up ready-to-kick-some-butt crying, not sad crying.)

Nujabes' Feather" ( R.I.B. Nujab).

and John Williams' "Flying Theme" from E.T. (I think the melody is blissful).

I used to think crying from music was kind of weird, but I guess it's healthy every now and then.
