As the title shows...which songs can bring you to the brink?  And why..well you don't have to say why but WHYYYYYYYYY?  Let's get sentimental baby!

I'll give you one of mine.

Al Stewart - Year of the Cat

The piano kills me.  My dad died when i was really young my mom said this was the first band they went to see as a couple (he wore blue corduroy pants).  I heard this song twice in the past three weeks, once in a taxi and another in a book shop.  So strange.

I was living with my fiancee when that song was popular and i left her on a fast bus, from her hometown of Winnipeg back to B.C., so the song moved me at the time. But i got over her within a year or so, so the song was just amusing nostalgia since.

Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto no.2 op 18

FFVI OST - Coin of Fate
Couple of good choices there.

I always found Marle's theme from Chrono Trigger a bit haunting in a "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" sort of way. It was a good simple little tune that was definitely affecting, just not sure that 's the kind of affect I'd choose for one of the four major characters.

That's my Dad's as well!  Lost his brother to a heroin overdose when he was 18.  Never even got to meet the guy.

Only You - Yazoo

Vince Clarke is a pop genius.  To have been in Depeche Mode and then go on to form Erasure?  Oh boy.

You like your 80s stuff then. I'm a big Mode fan but it still would have been interesting to see how they'd have turned out with Clarke over the long run.
