Default Saddest Foo song

What Foo song gets you choked up/crying, either cause it's pretty, it just sounds sad, or it holds special significance for you?

Mine are:
A320 (this song never fails to make me cry like a little kid. I think it's the strings at the beginning)
Next year (used to make me cry quite a bit, but it's gotten a lot less tear inducing)
Over and out (first heard this a few days after my Grandpa died, and it floored me. The lyrics did it)
Home (this song just makes me wistful when I'm away at college)
Aurora (this one is just so pretty that I get choked up)

*HUGS* try to remember all the good times you had with this person when you listen to it. It'll make it into a whole new song for you.

I'd say both the original and SnB version of February Stars, I doesn't make me cry but yea, it kinda makes me sad.

Oh, and I Should Have Known.

February Stars is so melancholy. It feels like to me the song is about giving it your all and it not being enough.

"Miracle" and "Virginia Moon". they just sound pretty.

"Still" sounds so depressing

"On The Mend" Great song, really powerful. Love the "Was it yooooouuuuuuu" part especially. That chord change is awesome. Very haunting and beautiful.

I have cried ..ok sobbed...most to "On the Mend." Heard it for the first time when I was going through some stuff and ever since then its water works every time I hear it!
I have cried at a ton of their songs though.
I am highly emotional haha

Agreed, I cry about a lot of songs, but "I should have known" is at the top.

I should have known. I can't always listen to it because it really does take you to a downer kind of place but I love how the next track Walk picks you up. beautiful song.

I believe I Should Have Known followed by February Stars are the saddest for me. Both very well written songs, and emotionally powerful.
