Leaving On A Jet Plane.

Motherfuck. I've seen my Dad sing that at a few funerals when I was younger. That context keeps it from being romantic. Unless you're more twisted than I thought.

There are several songs of a religious nature that do it for me.

Estrella -- Brave Saint Saturn



The author sings about struggling with faith while simultaneously watching his friend, who is dying from a degenerative disease, never lose faith. It was written as a tribute to him after he passed. It is beautiful and haunting.

I could list a bunch of Brave Saint Saturn songs. The band was a side-project of the band Five Iron Frenzy, which is known for its upbeat tone. BSS was meant to channel the darker themes that wouldn't really fit.

I'll give one more:

Invictus -- Brave Saint Saturn



A big theme throughout the band's works is of bitterness, cynicism, and depression being represented by darkness and God represented as light breaking up the darkness. I love this song because he just really bares himself, and it really speaks to me when I'm in low places.

I know there are other songs that are not religious that make me cry, but they're just not coming to mind right now.

I'm sorry, maybe I missed it, but is not one motherfucker going to list the saddest (And frankly, best [either this or B.o.B., anyways]) song of the aughts--if not ever?

I forgot about this song because I always skip it... because it makes me tear up. It's about the crappy parts of life.

Mothers Song (aka: Wolf Children ending song)

That thing was on the verge of making me tear up.
