Top Ten Songs That Make You Emotional

These are the top ten songs that make us real emotional.

The Top Ten

1 Lovers - Jackie Evancho

Men have been moved to tears, and have written poems and music after hearing Jackie Evancho sing Lovers. "You fly around me like a butterfly"; "Your voice still echos in my heart"!

Goosebumps, my goosebumps now have GOOSEBUMPS! HOLY CRAP! Where did she learn to sing like THAT! What the heck? Tears! TEARS!? I'm crying now? This girl is too much! She really is an angel.

Theme from the movie "House of Flying Daggers", the final acapella line "Your voice still echoes... in my heart" are the last words of the princess as she dies in the snow. Quite possibly the most heart-wrenching lyrical music ever recorded.
