You all inspired me to take out the Norah Jones CD I was listening to and pop in Alison Krauss. :)
Off the top of my head:
I Will Remember You--Sarah McLachlan
Sweet Old World--Lucinda Williams
Fire and Rain--James Taylor
Leader of the Band--Dan Fogelberg
Poncho and Lefty--Willie Nelson
and Whiskey Lullaby gets to me too.

Now I don't feel like such a dork. I listen to country music almost exclusively. I love an old song by George Jones named He stopped loving her today. I always imagine he was singing it to his ex wife.
A few that come to mind:
Exit Music (For a Film) - Radiohead
Lover, You Should Have Come Over - Jeff Buckley
No Distance Left to Run - Blur
Now My Heart is Full - Morrissey
Bell Bottom Blues - Eric Clapton
Now My Heart Is Full is an excellent mopey song, Manny!
He stopped loving her today is a fine choice, Muduh. At the moment I'm listening to Barbara Mandrell (with George Jones) singing

The song always gets to me, particularly upon George's entry.

Country music always attracted me as a genre that honored those that had paid their dues, and I found it personally disappointing at the time for all the young and less talented (IMO) turks overnight getting all the credit I didn't believe they had quite proven themselves worthy of.
Leftcoaster, we seem to have something in common. I don't really care for the newer country music. I like the old "beer drinkin' songs". George Jones and Randy Travis are two of my favorites.
I also like the album made here in Memphis way back when. Was it called Class of '58? something like that anyway. Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and several others. Now I have to email my son and ask him the name.
The Old Rugged Cross. I Come to the Garden Alone (In The Garden) They sang them at my Dad's funeral.
