Songs that emotionally cut you

This song stopped me in my tracks on a walk to work a while back. Actual tears running down my face. Just glad I didn't bump into anyone I know. The lyrics to this are fantastic and sadly relatable for so many.

Another shout for Tank Park Salute as well. Amazing song

Terrific thread, brought back many memories.

I know this is going to sound very soppy, but my earliest memories of sad and moving songs was at the age of seven when i was onboard the
P and O liner the Strathmore en route to Australia in the early sixties.
It seemed that all the passengers who had once been dotted along the entire length of the ship as they waved goodbye to their loved ones were
now assembling at the stern of the ship as the day turned to night and were watching the last lights of their beloved homeland grew fainter by
the minute when a young teenage girl broke into Somewhere over the rainbow.
It wasn't to be the last time I would get to see adults brought to tears or for me some eight years later when me and my family were returning to
Australia after an unsuccessful first attempt. The memory of that song came flooding back as did the tears.

After arriving in Perth, pretty much all of us ended up in a hostel on the banks of the Swan river.
Very few found work and so for the majority of us, spent months at the hostel, feeling very homesick and wondering why the Australian government
had assisted us with our passage and brought us to such a place.
It was heart breaking to witness grown Scottish men break down whilst singing at the top of their voices the Bonny Bonny banks of Loch Lomond.
Yet they sang it every night and friendships grew for us all that would last our lifetimes.

Told you it was soppy but so true and one can only admire the power of music and the emotions that it brings us all.

Stay safe all.

Could have picked a number of Clifford T Ward songs not the Least Home Thoughts From Abroad but I will go with this it kills me everytime. Never served in the forces but those who did will relate to this.

I was listening to Our Tune on Radio 2 when travelling home from work and the story was of a woman holding a her dying mother's hand as she passed away. The song played was Eternal Flame by the Bangles, I had to pull over, I was so emotional. Every time I hear it I remember this.
