    There are a few posts floating around about movies but not about music (unless they are buried somewhere).

    Which songs move you one way or another?

    Some of mine are:

    Erased (Annie Lennox), perhaps one of the best breakup songs out there

    Loneliness (Annie Lennox)

    Digital Ghost (Tori Amos), it hits home in the sense that some people are so absorbed by the internet that they forget about the real world and neglect their relationships. Kind of happened to me, this guy I was kind of seeing was more into Myspace than into me. Even when we would be spending time together at his place, he would be glued to his computer.

    1,000 Oceans (Tori Amos)

    Paint the Silence (South) it's about those love/hate relationships we all have

    Strange and Beautiful (Aqualung)...Ever fallen in love with or developed a crush on someone and that person doesn't even know you exist?

    Some of these songs are on my profile if you haven't heard them and want to have a listen...

    Songs that move me? Hmmm.....

    "Rocket Man" by Elton John.... the sound of the one acoustic guitar just stirs something emotional in me.

    "Bargain" by The Who... makes me feel great because it brings back memories of my best friend and I the summer after I moved to Chicago.

    "Raining in Baltimore" by Counting Crows... keep the tissues handy when this song comes on.

    "Everybody Hurts" by REM... I have to give someone a hug after I hear this.

    "Simply Irresistible" by Robert Palmer.... have to dance when I hear it.

    "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Blood, Sweat and Tears... when the song slows down at the end and that electric piano starts up, oooooh boy!

    "Songbird" by Fleetwood Mac.... whether I hear it or play it, my heart just fills with joy.

    "Winter" (Tori Amos) - poignant and emotional.
    "Promise To Try" (Madonna) - dunno, always had an effect on me.
    "Goodbye My Lover" (James Blunt) - self-explanatory, I think ;)

    I second Winter by Tori Amos - such a great song. I also like It's Only Life by Kate Voegele and Someone New by Eskobar feat Heather Nova.

    *Busts out the iTunes* Lessee what we got here....most of the moving stuff is in more of the tragic sense, but I think I've got a few uppers sprinkled in here.

    "Close Your Eyes" - Buffy OST. It's the love theme for Buffy and Angel, and if you're someone who saw the season finale for Season 2, you'll know why it's a kicker.

    "Big Girls Don't Cry" - Fergie. Yeah, her stuff's pretty fluffy, but if you pay attention to the lyrics, this is a pretty good one.

    "Early Winter" - Gwen Stefani. The lyrics don't have quite the punch, but the melody is beautiful.

    "Mile In These Shoes", "Stay Together" - Jennifer Lopez. "Mile" is a total attitude song; a big upper. "Stay Together" is an interesting change of pace from pop songs, pushing loving, long-lasting relationships.

    "What Goes Around.../...Comes Around Interlude" - Justin Timberlake. Another upper, very much a "fuck you" to anyone who's hurt you.

    "The Opened Way", "Revived Power" - Shadow of the Colossus OST. Very powerful, dramatic orchestral music.

    "Defying Gravity", "No Good Deed", "For Good" - Wicked. The theater fag in me comes out. A trio of emotional songs, going from happy to sad to a sort of happy sad, or sad happy.

    "The Ocean on His Shoulders" - Bioshock OST. A very mournful melody with some underlying bit of sinister.

    "Almost Lover" - A Fine Frenzy. Total tear-jerker.

    "Come What May" - Moulin Rouge OST. Depending on which version you listen to, it's a wonderful or tragic love song.

    "Affirmation", "I Don't Know You Anymore" - Savage Garden. The first is a really good mood booster, but the second will have you in tears.

    "It's A Beautiful Day" - Sarah Brightman. Strong, and if I'm hearing the lyrics right, bittersweet.

    "Artifact of Power, Movement 4 - The Shadows Left By Time" - Unknown. A compilation/mix of songs from Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You wouldn't know it was game music if you weren't familiar with the source material.

    "Hikari (PLANITb Remix)" - Utada Hikaru. Both English and Japanese versions are quite the listening experience.

    "Still Alive" - Lisa Miskovsky. Pick your remix; most of them, released with the Mirror's Edge OST, are fantastic.

    I am a dyed-in-the-wool classical music lover. However, one contemporary song really gets to me. Ironically, the singer, Amy McDonald, does not have a great voice, but she puts over the song quite well; and she is a first-rate poet. The song is, I Wish I Knew You Before . The accompanying video is also very expressive.

    Which songs I'd list would definitely have a completely different mood if you asked in mid-Summer.

    But here, in the middle of one of the coldest Winters in 30 years, these come to mind.

    Songs that are generally well known and have stood the test of time:
    "Last Time I Saw Richard" -- Joni Mitchell
    "Visions" -- Stevie Wonder
    "Hello Earth" -- Kate Bush
    "Western Sky" -- American Music Club (okay, this one isn't well known, but it's canon for me.)
    "Fast Car" -- Tracy Chapman
    "Inner City Blues" -- Marvin Gaye
    "Prelude 15" -- Frederic Chopin
    "Rubber Ring" -- The Smiths

    And here are songs from the last decade that have really grabbed my emotional attention:
