    Well, mainly the videos, ANY of the ones featuring troops and their families saying goodbye. "This is me missing you" by James House made me cry. Everytime i hear "Love Me When i'm Gone" or the video for it by Three Doors Down, i think of my ex, especially when i hear the line "hold me when i'm here, love when i'm gone". Lately he's been on my mind, been worried sick of what's going to happen to him.

    I think some of the ultimate tear jerkers are the videos by Travis Tritt that were a series of a story. The first one ("Anymore") feature him coming back home as a paraplegic, depressed and angry, but his wife stood by and encouraged him. There were a few more videos that continued the story, but anyone that's seen them knows what i'm talking about.

    Wasted Time by the Eagles.....will always make me cry.
    'oh my God, I can't believe it's happening again...you're baby's gone and you're all alone and it looks like the end......you never thought you'd be alone this far down the line...but I know what's been on your mind...you're afraid it's all been wasted time.'

    and Stevie Nicks' Silver Springs:....'time cast a spell on you but you won't forget me....I know I could have loved you but you would not let me.....i follow you down to the sound of my voice will haunt you....you'll never get away from the sound of the woman who loves you'

    hits close to home at this point in my life

    "Don't Speak" by No Doubt

    it just gets me all emotional....probably cause it's linked to loss in my life.

    "Take a Look at Me Now"- Phil Collins (the saddest song I've ever heard)
    "The Dance"- Garth Brooks
    "Goodbye My Friend" -by I don't know who
    "There's Got to be a Morning After"- Melissa Manchester
    "Kiss and Say Goodbye" -Manhattans
    "At This Moment"- Billy Vera and the Beaters

    and of course, that tear jerker from the 70s, "Torn Between Two Lovers" by, I believe, Mary MacGregor.

    even though i don't care for the song personally, "is that all there is?" by peggy lee was the saddest song i've heard offhand.

    "Angels in Waiting" by Tammi Cochran. She wrote it about her two brothers that died of Cystic Fibrosis. I bawled the first time I saw the video.

    "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" by Boys2Men.

    "Some Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boys2Men

    "Time" by the Alan Parsons Project

    Just my list that brings tears to the eyes every time I hear them.

    your sig line of "the horse is dead" sounds hopeful for a sad horsey song.
