Adagio for Strings can either really relax me, or one particular choral version I have does start the waterworks.

I'm much more of a wuss than I like to admit, and if I hear or see a performance that has the performer themselves emotional (as if going beyond their own expectations), I usually feed off of that myself. Certain songs like the national anthem always get to me IF they are performed really well. I think I mentioned here before that Whitney Houston's rendition in '91 during the first Gulf War still gets me everytime.

Other songs that occaisionally can get me are either just great performances, or are tied in to a personal experiences-
