The Show Must Go On made me cry like a baby.

Other songs like Mother Love and It's a beautiful day brought a tear to my eye

These Are The Days Of Our Lives. Freddie is truly saying goodbye. Very touching moment in the video, when he drops his head and says "I still love you." That has to be the most touching moment for me. Freddie knew that he only had a little time left and he faced all his fears with great courage. TATDOOL was totally Freddie's way of saying that he will be fine and that he would see everyone in heaven one day. A truly remarkable man. We love you and miss Freddie very much.

"These Are the Days of Our Lives," I would have to say. Even regardless of the actual purpose the song had for Freddie, it's a very moving song.

I would say "Save Me" is also one of Queen's most emotional pieces, particularly how striking each note, phrase, and word is. However, for some reason it doesn't strike me as a "sad song." Clearly it's sad, but...I don't know, it's just different.

Several lesser known Brian May songs also come to mind, but these two are the most obvious to me when I think of "sad, emotional songs."

i think brian writes the most emotional songs, and a few of my fave sad songs are, dear friends, nevermore, these are the days of our lives and drowse.

"Love of my life" - not a sad one, but a tear-tearer. The studio version is excruciating, and the recent live renditions by Brian leave no one with dry eyes. Proven.
"The Show Must Go On" - The final words (and on, and on, and on) make me play the track once more (and more, and more) :)

Aahh, Who wants to live forever and Save me, I think. No-one but you of course. OMG, I cried so much when I first heard it (and I NEVER cry), I just thought of Freddie and how sad it was that he was gone. Save me is also a song that I cry to, I just so beautiful... All dead All dead too.
Maybe It's late... but I don't know... It's late is just so painful, I think, it almost hurts to listen to it, but no, it doesn't go under the category 'Sad' for me... But it's so great...


All dead All dead all the dreams we had and I wonder why still live on

No one but you, particularly on video, Brian & roger both sing from their hearts, and it sets me off every time I dare to watch it.


Is it happening?

Ah, I totally forgot "No-One But You." What's particularly sad is that so many people can relate to it, in one way or another.
