* Played painfully straight by "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vw_yL1apnKE Far Longer Than Forever]]" from ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'', which rips off "Beauty and the Beast" to the point that they almost have the same melody on their respective title lines! That Regina Belle (alongside Jeffrey Osborne) handle the end credit reprise -- just like she did for ''Aladdin'' -- doesn't help.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' films gave us some stellar TearJerker examples: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ww8wqEgFIA8 May It Be]]" from ''Fellowship of the Ring'' and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgcoBKWTW14 Into the West]]" from ''The Return Of The King'' (1st: nominated for Oscar; 2nd: won).

Added DiffLines:

* Bizarrely, ''Film/TheAdventuresOfRockyAndBullwinkle'' - which is ''significantly'' heavier on cartoon humor than most works that warrant an Award Bait Song - has one called "Through the Eyes of a Child" (not to be confused with the ones from ''WesternAnimation/TheRapsittieStreetKidsBelieveInSanta'' or ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'').

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV1K3FE1f8c A Dream Worth Keeping]]" from ''WesternAnimation/FernGully: The Last Rainforest'', performed by Sheena Easton. A little unusual in that it appears during a lovey-dovey sequence in the movie and was ''not'' reprised over the end credits (instead the song in the credits is Music/EltonJohn's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLj569nl3uU Some Other World]].

** Another Forest Rain song, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0AqTtKHQc0 To Catch A Falling Star]], is an instrumental LonelyPianoPiece with a bit of an interesting history. Originally composed without any connotation to the show, it was to be released on a Kickstarter-funded community album in support of a (very young) friend of Creator/TaraStrong's who had cancer. The album never got released and Kiki lost her cancer battle several months later. Forest Rain later uploaded it to Website/YouTube in her honor.

* The ending theme of ''DeathSmiles'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-YCA1WXI2s Period]]. The song could be considered [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]] or a TearJerker.
