* "Welcome to the Machine" is an overlooked one. It's all about how the music industry has rebellious musicians trying to go on their own, only for the "machine" that is the music industry to have been built around these rebellious musicians, making them the biggest cog in this machine. The moroseness of the song helps too.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXqubvXfd-o live version from 1980]] somehow sounds even more somber, especially when David Gilmour is singing.

** "Autumn '68", of all songs, is the song that's going to do it for most. Both because it's built around a recording of Rick Wright playing the Royal Albert Hall pipe organ in 1968, and because it's so chillingly nostalgic that it will bring one to tears in seconds.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6rPacjAC8s Someone on YouTube created a video]] featuring the song set to scenes from the equally tear-jerking ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies''. It's a very effective juxtaposition, especially as the anime scenes match up very well with the official music video, as pointed out in the comments section.

** Speaking of which, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bqvcmud3LFQ video]] is amazingly nostalgic. The references to Syd (such as the oversized bust of his face being carried into the horizon) get me every single time.

** "Cluster One". It begins with a [[LastNoteNightmare First Note Nightmare]]... only to fade into one of the most dreamy and euphoric pieces of music one could ever hear.

*** It's the live version from ''Pulse'' that does it. Specifically, the solo from Part V, where the saxophone is much more pronounced, but also combined with several more instruments and sounds, made it difficult for [[Troper/TimeLordVictorious This Troper]] to not burst into tears upon hearing it for the first time. And when you actually watch the video from the ''Pulse'' DVD, there's that little film that is seen on the screen at the concert the footage was taken from, which makes it many times more tear-jerking than the original version.

* "The Thin Ice" from ''The Wall''. Especially the guitar solo near the end of the song.
