Even though I am sentimental and a girl and a music person, I don't just cry with any song, especailly with the first hearing. Only two songs have made me do this:

Adagio for Strings, Op. 11--Samuel Barber

I heard this song in an orchestra concert at my university and it just moved me so strongly.

O Magnum Mysterium (Motet) -- Victoria

I actually heard this one as a recording in Music history class, as example of renissance music. I was quieter about this, since it was class, but just the power of this music was something completely different from anything else I heard.

Both of these instances were due completely to the unique beauty and power of this music. I had no emotional attachment to any lyrics and I wasn't having a bad day either  

So what songs have moved you so strongly that you have wept?

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

The Wedding March. It took a few years for the tears to kick in, but definitely the Wedding March.

Adagio for Strings is my favorite...I heard this played one night during a concert for 9-11 and it took on a whole new meaning...

Music is like effervesent/energy/souls all joining as one, confectionary to the ears, mind, heart and body, a sway of light pulse

Music to me is like an open field of flowing breeze, artistic pastels...interrpriting emotions

Star Spangled Banner...

National Anthem...

and Wind beneath my Wings...but not until after my daughter gave me the CD one year, and said, "Mom, when I hear this song, I think of you..."

and now I can't hear the song without knowing my daughter's feelings, so just up the sandbags, because the dam WILL burst...

I am sure there are a few more songs I can think of, but I don't dare, not while I'm at my house of ball and chain...

Thanks for the replies, everyone But are these favorites because of the music itself, or some associated event, person, or emotion? I'm more interested in the beauty of the music alone, but other replies are awesome too

Oh lovely..one of my favourite topics..music.

For me there are many powerful pieces of music which can reduce me to tears from the first chord.

One is Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini (Rachmaninoff)
This piece is played in the movie Somewhere in Time although I loved it even before the movie was released back in the early 80's.  A powerful piece of music.

Also, "All I Ask" from Phantom.  
Especially if sung by Sarah Brightman.  Why?  Because the words touch me deeply and the music is so beautiful.

Then there is Un Bel Di from Puccini's Madame Butterly.  This one as it reminds me of my late mother so very much. And, when I hear it I cry.

Thanks to her she encouraged my sister and I to learn and appreciate all forms of music.

Sarah Brightman and Andre B. (Italian singer-can't spell his last name)

And that song by the righteous brothers when watching "Ghost" with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.

Yes.  

"Marry me, Bill" and "We've only just begun" erupts from me a comment such as the one that Ron left, above..

"Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini" (Rachmaninoff) springs tears to my eyes not only because of its association of the movie, but even now, of the characters played and for the actor we now miss...

Catch me with my hormone level down, and the right music on the station, and I can be a puddle, quickly....

it all depends, honey...it just all depends...

- "God Save the Queen"
- "The Last Post"
- "Oh Holy Night"

Lovebug - The two songs I posted make me weepy just because of the music alone.. They aren't necessarily associated with any event in my life..

If that's what you were looking for?

Tony Bennet "Oh Danny Boy" Live at Carnegie Hall.

Johnny Nash "I Can See Clearly Now" (played it my daughter's funeral, so now I'm sunk)

Michael W. Smith "Friends" and many more...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

"Circle Game" by Joni Mitchell, brings tears to my eyes,
And the * "Wedding Song" at weddings sung, always makes me cry
Then there's **"Jimmy Brown The Newsboy" a special song to me,
'Cause that sad song, brings back my dad....in a memory;
Who sang it low (when I was six) as I sat upon his knee.

Oh, and  I forgot
How ***"Pagliacci", sung by Pavarotti,
For some reason that is strange...
Seems to always choke me up.

  

*"Wedding Song", Lyrics by Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul And Mary)
** "Jimmy Brown The Newsboy" Lyrics by A.P.Carter -1934
*** Pagliacci" Lyrics by Ruggero Leoncavallo (1857-1919).

For some reason, a cappela versions of Martin Luther's music does that to me, especially by A Cappela.  Same with 'El Shaddai' by Amy Grant.

Joni Mitchell is effortless in making you cry. Her music is so brutally honest and cuts right down to the bone of raw human emotion.

Counting Crows' "A Murder of One" was the one song that always buzzed in my head as I was making the transition stage between my days where I never knew myself and finding my true voice. It still makes me cry each time I listen to it because of its sentimental value and the desperation in Duritz's vocals when he says, "You don't want to waste your life, change, change, change!"

Sarah McLachlan is also effortless in touching my heart. "Angel" always makes me cry, as does "Good Enough" and "Aria".

I really do cry easily lisening to music. Aimee Mann and Jackson Browne in particular gets to my heart a lot. And "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?"

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

But if the bright lights don't receive you
You should turn yourself around and come back home" MB20

The theme music from "Out of Africa" gets me every time, rain or shine. Non piangere Liu from Turandot also.
I agree with Joni Mitchell being good at tear-jerking. Both sides now is a great favourite.
Eternal Flame also always touches me deeply. Time has told me by Nick Drake, come to think of it Nick Drake music in general: wonderful.
Some of these are just the music and some are the associations.
