Tell me your go-to songs that make you cry.

I feel many emotions when I am listening to music - happiness, melancholy, goosebump-y, etc. - but I rarely find albums that can bring me to tears. I just bought a Non-English album that brought me to (mostly joyful) tears many times; the experience was almost cathartic. Please give me songs (in any language, or even without any singing) that provoked a strong emotional response in you the first time you heard it - I'm talking powerful feelings like awe, joy, sadness, etc. that would make you tear up or outright cry.

I don't want to cry, but I also don't want to have to not pay attention

I am an epic ugly crier, and I cry incredibly easily. I have always been this way, and a lot of my family are the same way. We attribute it to my grandmother, who we always joked must have her tear ducts connected to her bladder. Happy things, sad things, frustration, excitement. Not pain for some reason, but just about any emotion will make me cry. When I really get going I hyperventillate, lose the ability to talk (relating to the hyperventilating I guess), my skin goes super blotchy, and man... it is just ugly. And it takes a long time to calm back down. Added bonus is that I usually top all this off with an epic cry headache afterwards. This is a problem because I am getting married in a month and I seriously don't want to be ugly crying my face off the entire time. As it stands I can't even READ the ceremony without getting teary. I have no idea how I am ever going to get through saying my vows. [more inside]

How to control (choose) when I cry and when I remain stoic.

I want to be able to control when I become emotional and when I hold it together. Ever since meeting my first Russian orphans in 1999, my heart has grown progressively more tender and I "come to tears" very easily. In the Russian culture, a man crying is extremely rare and frankly not at all understood by the typical Russian young person. Once, during a tearful conversation with a precious girl I met in '99 and consider as a daughter, she actually asked my interpreter, "Is there something wrong with him? Maybe a neurological or psychiatric illness of some sort?" Can someone suggest how I can develop mastery over my emotional expression? A book? A therapist? Hypnosis? [more inside]

What animal produces this cry?

The other night my wife and I heard a creature calling in the woods, near our house, for about half an hour. It was an alarming cry that neither of us have heard after a lifetime of living in the woods of central Virginia. Naturally, we recorded the sound (190k MP3) knowing we could just Ask Metafilter. Can anybody ID this critter?
