    God I feel down today:( and it got me thinking what are those real tearjerkers that you just want to sit down and have a good cry to. I've been reading the lyrics to sad songs all day and this is a good one.

    Landslide by Stevie Nicks....

    I took my love, I took it down
    Climbed a mountain and I turned around
    I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
    'till the landslide brought me down

    Oh, mirror in the sky
    What is love
    Can the child within my heart rise above
    Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides
    Can I handle the seasons of my life

    Well, I've been afraid of changing
    'cause I've built my life around you
    But time makes you bolder
    Children get older
    I'm getting older too

    Oh, take my love, take it down
    Climb a mountain and turn around
    If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well the landslide will bring it down

    If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
    Well maybe the landslide will bring it down.


    Or how about this....Wonderful Life by Nick Cave (one of many the depressed man could choose!)

    Come in, babe
    Across these purple fields
    The sun has sunk behind you
    Across these purple fields
    That idiot-boy in the corner
    Is speaking deviated truths
    Come on, admit it, babe
    It's a wonderful life
    If you can find it
    If you can find it
    If you can find it
    It's a wonderful life that you bring
    Ooh it's a wonderful thing

    Speak our secret into your hands
    And hold it in between
    Plunge your hands into the water
    And drown it in the sea
    There will be nothing between us, baby
    But the air that we breathe
    Don't cry
    It's a wonderful, wonderful life
    If you can find it
    If you can find it
    If you can find it
    It's a wonderful life that you bring
    It's a wonderful, wonderful thing

    We can build our dungeons in the air
    And sit and cry the blues
    We can stomp across this world
    With nails hammered through our shoes
    We can join that troubled chorus
    Who criticise and accuse
    It don't matter much
    We got nothing much to lose
    But this wonderful life
    If you can find it
    And when you find it
    And when you find it
    It's a wonderful life that you bring
    It's a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful thing

    Sometimes our secrets are all we've got
    With our lives we must defend
    Sometimes the air between us, babe
    Is unbearably thin
    Sometimes it's wise to lay down your gloves
    And just give in
    Come in, come in
    Come in, come in
    To this wonderful life
    If you can find it
    And if you find it
    It's a wonderful life that you bring
    It's a wonderful, wonderful thing
    It's a wonderful life
    It's a wonderful life

    :( :(

    Can't think of any songs that directly make me feel like crying. Maybe a few which remind me of times/people/places which might cause a bit of welling up if heard in the right situation.

    However, cheer up mate

    the album Judges Juries and Horsemen by the The Weather Prophets is a sad one for me - I used to play this when I broke up with my first love (around when the album first came out circa 1987)...I got dumped of course...I recently bought this on cd quite cheap and it still makes me feel sad - tho, I don't have any feeling for that lass I was seeing at the time!

    Nelly the elephant paps her trunk,
    And says goodbye to the circus,
    Off she goes with a Trumpety Trump,
    Trump, Trump, Trump.
