** "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.
* "Echoes". Just, Echoes. All 23 minutes of it are so stunningly amazing and beautiful that the tears will flow multiple times, but the entire section from 14:28 to the end are so beautiful that it's hard not to be moved to tears.

* "Don't Leave Me Now" is a combination of NightmareFuel and this. While it's hard to feel too sorry for Pink here, the song itself is just so overwhelmingly pathetic.

* "Hey You" from The Wall. Pink Realized he's made a big mistake going behind his personal wall, yet because "the wall is too high as you can see," he can't break free. He is destined to decay into the neo-Nazi he becomes later, and knowing this is makes it positively heartbreaking.

** The entire damn album -- with the possible exceptions of "Welcome to the Machine" (which is merely at the band's typical level of moroseness) and "Have a Cigar" (which is even critical kinda comedic) -- but particularly "Shine On You Crazy Diamond".

*** While they were recording the ablum Music/SydBarrett showed up at the studio. Storm Thorgesorn wrote: "[...] We haven't seen him for six or seven years. I don't know to this day what made him turn up just then, looking terrible, his head shaven, eyes sunken, complexion jaundiced, his body fat, asking awkwardly if he could be of any help. But he was out of it. Roger cried, David cried. [...]"

* ''Endless River'', as the band's final album, has a subtext of melancholy and finality under the whole thing.

* "Bring The Boys Back Home" is tear jerker enough, but go to a concert on Roger Waters' The Wall tour and try not crying. This troper is extremely manly yet when he saw the show on May 29th, 2012, he bawled his eyes out. The images of war atrocities and people in Africa mixed with the words are just... oh god...
