For some reason that one ultra-sad torch song in what is an upbeat comedy-musical does it for me. *shrug*

"If Only" from THE LITTLE MERMAID, especially the orchestrations when Tituss sings.

I know, I know.
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

I agree 100% about piazza. That music is just so rapturous it brings me to tears as well.

Specifically "Say It Somehow".

The very end of Les Mis

As soon as Valjean sings "On this page, I write my last confession..." the tears start

I even sometimes tear up listening to the recordings at that point -- especially the Paris cast with Robert Marien

Some of Les Miserables' music made me tear up a little. I saw Lea Salonga sing "I Dream a Dream" - she did such a beautiful job that i cried a little. I think I also cried a bit during "Little Fall of Rain." I'm not usually one to cry during sad moments in shows, but the cast did such a wonderful job getting into their parts!

Oh, and I forgot to list BARE on there. As amateur as some of BARE is, it struck an undeniable chord with me. I actually cannot listen to the recording anymore because it puts me back in such a bad place.

"Role of a Lifetime"
"No Voice"
"A Quiet Night at Home"
"Ever After"
"Touch my Soul"
"Once Upon a Time"

and more.

""Lot's Wife" from CAROLINE OR CHANGE is one of those."

Interesting. For a long time that was the only song I could cite that I'd literally cried from listening to it.

"In My Life" from In My Life
or
"Sail Me Away" from Lestat
I know both were terrible musicals, but those songs are amazing.
