Oh yeah - i forgot about that one - the video in particular I find heartbreaking!

I also forgot
Last Goodbye - Jeff Buckley
Last Kiss - Pearl Jam
Never Tear Us Apart - INXS

...and a really dodgy one...
Love Bites- Def Leppard (hey, I was 14 and IN LOVE )

Pretty much anything by Leonard Cohen gets me riled up.

I'll think on this more soon.

I don't use to cry with songs or something, but these songs are really close:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps (live); when they started to play it the second time I saw them, there was a young couple in front of me and the boy started to cry, his girlfriend asked surprised "are you crying?" and the boy laughed... that was kinda cute

Sufjan Stevens - To Be Alone With You; it remembers me to someone

the whole 'Enjoy Eternal Bliss" album by Yndi Halda; is so beautiful that it's hard to believe

Any song by any winner of "talent" shows, not because they're emotional songs, just the fact that people have been parted from hard earned cash to listen to the F%$£ING drivel that they sing!

Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
City of Blinding Lights - U2
Putting The Damage On - Tori Amos
Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
You're Missing - Bruce Springsteen
Soundtrack to Edward Scissorhands - the music is so beautiful and the movie makes me cry, a lot in part thanks to the score by Danny Elfman
Yesterday - The Beatles

Those are the ones that come to mind right of the top of my head.

These two are both exceedingly powerful. In terms of philosophizing about suicide, Final Cut takes an almost polar opposite approach from Stuck in a Moment. An extremely disenheartening song, but powerful nonetheless.
