Was listening to Tupac's "Mama" the other day. Damn, unscheduled precipitation all over my face! :((
Leader of the Band by Dan Fogleberg can do that to me too if I let it.

OK, your turn. Fess up!

Butterfly Kisses...

My eldest daughter gave me that song for Father's Day way back when... my eyes seem to break out in a sweat whenever I play it now!

Feels like home - Chantal Kreviauk(I think) It's a gorgeous tune, and I use it for last dance, and have the bride and groom hug and kiss anyone in the circle I've created for their send off. More often than not, I weep a little when it is played. Not many songs make me do that.

For some reason, "God Bless The USA" by Lee Greenwood gets me a bit misty. Another one would be "Dance With My Father."

Shred your man cards, now!
Actually, it's only REAL men that have the testicular fortitude to admit to their feelings, including the ones that bring about tears, who get Man Cards.
It's the scaredie-kat, willy-nilly wannabees who aren't yet brave enough to accept their feelings who've yet to be issued "Man Cards" -Z-

I'm a man with a strong sense of compassion.

Some girls don't like boys like me.... ohhhhh but some girls do. :)

Mmm Bop, Hanson

Never gonna give you up, Rick Astley

Any Milli Vanilli song

Those ones make me wanna cry.
 

Earl From CloudNine

Canayjun, Eh!
I'm not too proud to admit there are a number of songs in this category... At the top of the list, for very personal reasons, is "Daisy A Day" by Judd Strunk. A very close second would be Josh Groban's "To Where You Are".

Oh, and I almost forgot, "Tears In Heaven" by Eric Clapton. I honestly don't know how Eric can possibly make it through that song in concert.

While I DID "thank" Xtreme for his reply, in a moment of introspection I realized that there is one. "Without You" by Nillsson.

(ED TO ADD)

Debbie came home for lunch and,as usual, played the OTHER song that "does it every time"

The Star Spangled Banner.

While,(nearly),ANY version will do it, she plays the Madison Rising version.

Steve, I would like to think I'm not a scardy cat. lol I just havent heard a song yet that brought me to tears.....at least not the song itself. Thinking about it there have been moments at gigs I have done that may got gotten my eyes a little watery. Special dedications/speeches about a relative or friend that passed away or something like that, but can't think of a song to do it.
