Loads of em can make me cry..

Off the top of my head:

I'll Remember You (Love this, the key change is something else as Elvis really goes with it, it never fails to get me)

It's Midnight

You Gave me a Mountain (truly sublime)

How Great thou Art (makes me think of my Grandpa!)

American Trilogy (breathtaking)

Don't Cry Daddy (I have two young kids, I see 'em a lot but they don't live with me. Their favourite is the Aloha DVD)

Separate Ways

I'm Leavin'

For the Good Times (especially the alternate take from the Platinum box)

Always on my Mind

Love Letters

Wild in the Country (seriously...it just hits me sometimes)


I could be here all day so I'll stop now. Such is the power of beautiful music.

I can't recall crying. But, there have been happenings in my personal life that makes me very moody when hearing songs like: It's Over, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, Suppose, Do You Know Who I Am?, My Boy, Always On My Mind, Are You Lonesome Tonight?, I Miss You, For Ol' Time Sake, I Really Don't Want To Know, Love Letters, I've Lost You, And I Love You So, Suspicious Minds, Suspicion, I Feel That I've Known You Forever, Anything That's Part Of You, Memories, Mama Liked The Roses, Love Coming Down a.o.

Beach Shack

When you're through swimming
I'll dry your back
Come and relax girl
In my little beach shack
dum-di-dum-di-dum, yeah-yeah-yeah
There'll be nothing you'll lack
It's a pleasure to welcome you
In my little beach shack

In my beach shack, baby we'll be alone
In my beach shack, I'll make you feel at home

Take off that wet cap
Let down your hair
Come to my beach shack
You'll be comfortable there
dum-di-dum-di-dum, yeah-yeah-yeah
Be my guest, have a snack
See how nice I feed company
In my little beach shack

In my beach shack, baby we'll be alone
In my beach shack, I'll make you feel at home

Come see my etchings
I wish you would
Don't be afraid girl
My intentions are good
You believe me now..
dum-di-dum-di-dum, yeah-yeah-yeah
I know girls by the pack
There's no-one I want there but you
In my little beach shack

In my beach shack, baby we'll be alone
In my beach shack, I'll make you feel at home

In my little beach shack....


specialy "dum-di-dum-di-dum, yeah-yeah-yeah" part still touching my soul

Yeah, I'm with you Erhan. :lol: That's a real tearjerker...gets me every time :lol: Like you (probably), I've had a few problems with beach shacks through the years, and this one just keeps right on a-hurtin' me.

"It Hurts Me".

yeah quite a few good songs do that.. certainly 'how the web was woven' and 'it's midnight' are tremendous songs, also don't forget 'iv'e lost you' or 'just pretend' from 1970 :lol:

In the first few years after Elvis died I couldn't listen to Danny Boy without tears brimming up. Especially the line "and I shall feel how soft you tread above me, and then my grave will richer sweeter be." That still can get to me. Now when I hear that line I think of all of us who have payed our respects at his grave.

Another one that used to get to me is Take Good Care of Her. He sounds truly despondant. Especially when he sings "Please don't send me any wedding invitations, for I couldn't bear to see her there with you." Man, that used to get me right in the heart.

That´s really fantastic! It is neat that Elvis puts his heart and soul on this song.
