    There are probably a few macho rockers out there who won't admit that a song actually made them cry, but the song that makes me blubber like a baby is "You Still Believe In Me", off the Pet Sounds album by the Beach Boys...
    What are the songs that found you shocked that you would tear up at them?

    First song to make me cry, funnily enough was off the Pet Sounds album also..."God Only Knows"...I was SO in love with this girl in high school.......since then there's been songs that have made me bawl, but usually only when I'd been drinkin'......the exception is "So I'll Run", written by A.B. Strehli Jr. and recorded by Jimmie Dale Gilmore (yeah, I know, I'm the only one here that likes him or has even heard of him probably) on his "Spinning Around The Sun" album.....he's kinda hard to categorize, you either are fascinated with his voice or you're not, and he's country/rock/honkytonk/folk sorta....dig these lyrics from the aforementioned "country" song:

    Baby Leonardo must have held his hammer heavy
    as he cast a shadow, straight into stone
    maybe wisdom comes to those who wait though being weary
    I know for myself though, I'll just walk on
    and I'll run from you, oh, in the summertime
    I know you'll need me when the warm breeze is blowing
    you'll want me by your side

    Reading it doesn't do it justice, the phrasing is everything plus the chording......gibs

    I think maybe one by Gloria Estefan, I'll have to find the title. 'Losing You' or something. And maybe one by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils (Lowlands). I say maybe because it would have been a while ago, and probably when I was drinking. Unfortunately music hasn't played as big a part in my life during the past few years as it used to. Maybe because I don't drink as much. They sort of went hand in hand for many years. Now I'm just an emotionless pig. Oink, oink.

    I'll admit this only because he's dead now...

    ...but a couple cuts off One Size Fits All by Zappa do it to me. I know he'd think I was a soft goon for being affected this way, but my theory is that sometimes life uses you as a vehicle for something you never intended. In other words, there's Frank and the boys singing in German and taking the piss out of religion in general and people who take religion seriously in particular, and here I am getting wiped out at the beauty of it. Frank can kiss my ass if he doesn't like it.

    Any one of you old farts remember a song by Lothar and the Hand People, I think it was called "Standing on the Moon" (not to be confused with the Grateful Dead tune of the same name)? It started off with a complete hypnosis routine, so by the time you were done with the song you were practically tripping and bawling your eyes out from the sheer wonder of the universe. I'd love to get this on MP3 or something...
