Almost any song with vocals by Tracey Thorn (especially Massive Attack's "Protection") or Beth Orton (especially "Galaxy of Emptiness").

Silversprings by Fleetwood Mac. This song came on the radio as I was driving to a funeral and just made me cry like crazy. It's very hard to hear this song now.

Where Did You Sleep Last Night? by Nirvana gets me just about every time. The emotions in his voice are unbeleivable.

No songs just straight up make me cry, but depending on my mood and how well I'm currently relating to the subject matter, I might get a lil emotional haha. Well, I never actually cried, except maybe once at a live Tool show, but it gives you that feeling of wanting to cry kind of. Hard to explain. I've been going through some shit lately and have been listening to Pearl Jams Release, Black, indifference, immortality, nothingman, etc...

Specifically the version of Release from the MSG show last tour.

Tool's Disposition/Reflection/Triad gets me too, as does Parable/Parabola, and Lateralus.

As I just mentioned in another thread... I get all weepy when I hear "Viva Forever" by The Spice Girls. Another one is "Never Had A Dream Come True" by S Club 7.

Now, I know those coices seem awful. But it's not just the song (and they're not bad songs, really) - i's the context, the connotation... I heard the songs in 1998 and 2000 during visits home to Ireland, so they remind me of great times I had there and people I miss.

Bob Dylan's "Standing in the Doorway" from Time Out of Mind - there is a moment in the song where he sings "there are things that I could say, but I don't" and the ache that accompanies "I don't" just tears my heart out..

that is the most immediate song that comes to mind...

Dubstar: b-side song "I Lost a Friend'

Feeder: "Just the Way I'm Feeling"

Love in, love out,
Find the feeling
Scream in, Scream out,
Time for healing
You feel the moment's gone too soon,
You're watching clouds come over you.

Torn in two,
You close your eyes for some place new,
Torn in two

And I feel it's going down,
Ten feet below the ground,
I'm waiting for your healing hand,
One touch could bring me round
I feel we're going down,
Ten feet below the ground,
It's just the way I'm feeling.

Glow in, burn out,
Lost the feeling
Bruise in, you bruise out,
Nurse the bleeding

Torn in two,
Each time we bruise

And I feel it's going down,
Ten feet below the ground,
I'm waiting for your healing hand,
One touch could bring me round
I feel we're going down,
Ten feet below the ground,
It's just the way I'm feeling.
Yeah yeah, it's just the way I'm feeling.

Two different views,
As words confuse and break
I can't get out,
There's no way out of here,
I can't get clear.

Love in, love out,
Find the feeling.

And I feel it's going down,
Ten feet below the ground,
I'm waiting for your healing hand,
One touch could bring me round
I feel we're going down,
Ten feet below the ground,
It's just the way I'm feeling.
Yeah yeah, it's just the way I'm feeling.

Some older songs may choke me up a bit, but the most recent is "Hear You Me" by Jimmy Eat World.

I'd say "The Living Years" by Mike & the Mechanics, as cheesy as that is. Great song, and something that most of us will have to potentially experience one day.
