I’m guessing you don’t all have hearts of pure stone like Nat.  What songs get you emotional?  Most emotional songs have a meaning behind them.
Some for me which at the moment do is this labyrinth song performed by Josh Daniel
What songs can you add to the sad song list.  I have loads...

A strange one for me is Kingdom of the Cross by rock band Saxon. It's about the First World War, and it was on the radio a lot over here at the time my Dad died. It's more like a poem than a song. Very moving, for me at least. Lyrics below:

What is this place across the field
Where poppies stretch and sway
In Flanders days of war are gone
But memories will remain
Comrades of their different codes came to fight and die
From all sides they stood and fought and fell beneath the sky
Where is this land where I am now
A million spirits cry
A generation loved and lost
Never asking why
It didn't matter what you told to the general, it's how you died
But to your families back at home, you were heroes side by side
The unknown soldier never known
A cross to mark your grave
But we remember what you did
In our hearts you will remain
Where is this land where I am now
A million spirits cry
A generation loved and lost
Never asking why
So wave the flags and say goodbye
To a generation lost
They are marching out to history
To the kingdom
The kingdom of the cross
A cross the psalm and Flanders lay
A generation gone
Came to fight the war of the wars
The father and the son
Marching band cheer of joy
Sent you on your way
To face the brooding battle fields
And lives just thrown away
An inch of ground was heavy won and lost
Too much a price to pay
Young man lost
Their future gone
That's all there is to say
So wave the flags and say goodbye
To a generation lost
They are marching into history
To the kingdom
The kingdom of the cross
The paper said you'd all be home for Christmas
But politicians sang their battle hymn
Soon the bones will start the slaughter
And the end of innocence will begin
There is no one left that made it home
Their lives will see no more
Gone to meet their fallen friends
In Flanders fields of war
In the kingdom of the cross
A generation gone
Remember they were men like us
Remember everyone
So wave your flags and say goodbye
To a generation lost
They are marching into history
To the slaughter and the loss
Remember
A generation lost
They are marching out together
To the kingdom
To the kingdom of the cross

I went to the gents at the end of the film of Les Miserables and the place was full of guys stooping over the wash basins, swilling cold water over their eyes and red faces.

Maybe the Les Mis choice was more about the acting and ideas in the film, but this Mike and the Mechanics song is definitely about the lyrics....

Can't think of a sad song just now, but a poignant one for me is Donovan's Universal Soldier, and Ralph McTell's Streets of London
