Songs that bring a tear

Was listening to a song earlier that i find almost always brings a tear to the eye, and wondered which ones do that for you. I do not mean specific ones that may have deeply personal memories as I appreciate how personal they are. More along the lines of "everyday" songs/tunes.
For me there are two that come to mind. Just now I heard Amazing Grace, which tends to really impact me, and the other is Abide with Me..

my 19 year old nephew was cremated to Bright Eyes by Art Garfunkel, almost 20 years on, lets just say, it brings a tear or two

Can empathise mate. For me it was Bridge over troubled waters by Johnny Cash at my daughters memorial service three years ago. We had three songs that day, the other two were Dylan songs, Forever Young and Girl of the north country

Toni Braxton -Unbreak My Heart.

Good song and was a fav of one of my lads when he was 13 and was taken ill and this song was in my head as we travelled from Brighton to Great Ormond Street with the unmentionable thought that he might not be coming back.

We had a happy ending and, despite having to give up any thoughts of playing footie, he has done 3 marathons and is Albion mad.

Think its because when i first heard it i was at a young age, in love, and it made me realise that nothing is forever.
