Sarah McLachlan.  She can coax you to the river and drown you in sorrow.

It Never Rains in Southern California by Albert Hammond. It's heartbreaking.

Long Time Ago....words by George Pope Morris, melody by I don't know, but it's a gorgeous song.

When I Look at You from the Broadway musical The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Holy cow - speaking of musicals...geesh how could I have forgot..

Memories - from the musical "Cats"

Normally, I don't cry, at much of anything.  But wow, hearing/watching this sung live?  That was absolutely amazing, and it brought a tear to my eye.

Smile - Lonestar: Kills me still, and the life I led then is in the past... *sigh*

I was going to list the songs, but then realized that would be about the whole album... Mad Season - Matchbox 20: I SWEAR Rob Thomas was watching me... the whole album is nothing more than a biographical account of my life at a certain time... most of the time, a song will partially fit - this whole ALBUM does!!!

Finally, Run to the Water & Dolphin's Cry by Live. For varied reasons, the songs both kill me.

I am going to cheat-- and without saying it is a favourite, or even a good sad song,,
He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones has got to be one of if not The saddest song of all time, in fact some say that drinking alcohol should come with an additional caution besides drinking and driving--- Don't drink and Jones...

Wilt thou withstand the shock?
And share with him - the unforgiven-
His vulture and his rock?"

I can make any orchestral song sad in my own mind.  I can actually make some of the themes from Phantom of the Opera[That musical by Andrew Lloyd Weber] remind me of the tragic story of certain sci-fi civilizations I'm coming up with, even though most of the scores are about some girl in love, lol.  Sorry, don't know much about the story.  I've only heard some of the scores.

I agree on the DC Talk one.  I'm glad that some Christians have decided to actually write songs about the less desirable aspects of certain practicers of my religion.  

I think that some of Phil Collins' music is really depressing.  I used to call him "Mr. Depression," lol, but now I like depressing music.  It's the best stuff to write to.

As far as titles are concerned, I can only think of a few:

Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel[ESPECIALLY the part where he sings about the names]
Dreaming While You Sleep - Phil Collins
Tell Me Why - Phil Collins

"If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh"

Shannon- Henry Gross
  It's the one about the dog named Shannon that drowns.  From the 70's.  I just have to hear the music and I start bawling!!

Holes In The Floor of Heaven- Steve Wariner
  It was playing a lot when my Dad died.  I always cry when I hear it.
