'TAPS' Really used to get to me, and still does. I'm active duty and I was on an Honor Guard team. We buried many retirees and vets as well as active duty. Mostly it seemed, WWII vets. At the end of the ceremony when TAPS was played, it was difficult to stand there like a statue while everyone around us fell apart.
taps is the one tune that makes me fall apart. composure is completely lost. i think it's the finality of it, always the last part of a military funeral. the absolutely last touch you'll ever have with that body in the coffin that used to be a living, caring human soul.
I takes a lot to move me to tears but this one does everytime:
Symphony No 3
This is a symphony written by contemporary polish composer named Henryk Mikolaj Gorecki and is usually titled "symphony of sorrowful songs"
Here is a lyrical excerpt:
No, mother do not weep Most chaste queen of heaven support me always "Ave maria"*
* Prayer inscribed on the wall of cell no3 in the basement of "palace" the Gestapo headqaurters in Zankopane beneath the signature of Helena Blazusiakowna and the words "18 years old imprisoned since 26th september 1944"
It is sung by a soprano but is not opera, and it is to put it simply the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard.

Whoever said Taps , man , I'm with ya . It's one that leaves you at a loss for words . But it's somewhat negative feeling . In a positive sense , "I'm proud to be an American" , I don't know who does it , but damn . Tears everytime .
