    I have to agree with “Hallelujah”, but none of the other songs have made me ever cry, even being a girl and all. 😉 Just a thought though, isn’t a song supposed to make us feel something? And a song may be beautiful, but in all reality, aren’t all songs a soundtrack of our lives. Always reminding of the”old days”, memories of even yesterday, any one moment of our lives? And a song can bring all those feelings connected to those times back, good or bad. Just my opinion and all.
