    Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton...it's not so much the song itself that is moving - more the reason why he wrote it

    REM - Everybody hurts



    +1 and Losing My Religion

    Everyday by Carly Comando. No lyrics, just piano. Love this song so much; it's very emotive.

    Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah used to do it for me. Until X-Factor destroyed it.

    The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony makes me a bit emotional.

    Yes, I have emotions.

    George Michael - Tonight
    and his cover(?) of I Can't Make You Love Me
