      Oh, I almost forgot to add my own to the list:

      Fields of Gold - Sting
      Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley version
      Open Window - Sarah Harmer (happy, but still a moving song)
      The Promise - Bruce Springsteen piano version
      Sometimes - Daniel Lanois

      Sorry, but I can't just list one! I could still go on and on and on...

      (But I won't)

        Gotta go with the Kiwi---this one always grabs me hard. It's so desolate and hopeless, complete in the knowledge of loss and inevitablity. There are many other, similar songs, some so crushing I have never been able to listen all the way through, but that one I can both enjoy and "feel her pain". Remarkable.

          Hey, good taste!

          I broke up with a woman after 6 years and she sent me this song. Doh!

                "Zip City" by the Drive By Truckers. God I love this song, I listen to it whenever im feelin' down. Also, "Women Without Whiskey", by the DBT. Great feelin' sad kinda stuff. Oh yeah, "Ball and Chain", by Social Distortion. Quite possibly the most depressing song ever written.

                    The Eagle and the Hawk-- John Denver
                    Sniper-- Harry Chapin
                    The Sounds of Silence-- Simon and Artfunkel

                    We had a gospel singin' type lady show up at a local gathering. She sang and played "Amazing Grace" to the tune of "House of the Rising Sun". Awesome!

                        Awesome list of songs! I don't hear people mention The Eagle And The Hawk on these boards, but that is such a great tune...great lyrics, that hypnotizing descending "open string droning" chord progression, and John Denvers vastly underrated voice and vocal range!!
                        Thanks, and rock on!

                          That's a surprising song to see, but darned if it ain't right on!!!

                          I've always wanted to do a sort of alt-country grunge cover of that song (hint, hint for any cyberjammers )
                          Thanks, and rock on!

                            When I hear that song I think "yep, she lived that thing". Some
                            songs people do it seems like they're talking about other people...
                            That particular tune seems to hit close to home to her.

                              You guys are soooo way off. The most moving song ever written..... and I get all teary-eyed just thinking about it.... is.....

                              "Billy Don't Be a Hero"
