Almost every single song featured in ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' will either [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments make you go "d'aww"]] or [[TearJerker start sniffling]]. [[TearsOfJoy Or both]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI9fXifMYoY Clannad's Opening]] is amazing, both in the original and in the official [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgB0Y_BUvFE Cuckool Mix]].
** While the opening is incredibly beautiful, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4k6HWcf6jM ending]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvzCmV3_12c "Dango Daikazoku"]], counts as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}, given how... ''adorable'' it is. It even spawned a [[MemeticMutation meme]] in which the dango family in the animation were replaced with [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]]. See it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptz7W5EUoOM here]].
** The song is basically symbolic of Tomoya's feelings about Nagisa over the entire series. In the first season, it's adorable and twee. [[spoiler: In the second half of the second series, it is heartrendingly sad (especially when Tomoya sings it to Ushio). And at the end, it comes back, with the whole family singing it together, as...]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i67ZXLPeg9s "Chiisana Tenohira"]]. Seriously, just... listen to it. So beautiful...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSZhAHrf8z4 Lia's version]] of this song is just as beautiful.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tZ19UZo-WQ Piano Version]] is quite lovely.
** As is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeZPOekxFz0 New Seasons Mix]].
* ''~After Story~'s'' OP song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0oQ4HavoUU "Toki wo Kizamu Uta"]], counts as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}. Directly translated, it means "The Song That Transcends Time," which, put in context, is perfectly symbolic of Tomoya's love for Nagisa.
** The lyrics are absolutely [[TearJerker heartrending]] when placed in context with the series:
---> "It was only you who I loved, It's a song I only sang with you, It's the time we passed together, I can't go on all alone."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWUBJsxbfTA "Nagisa's Theme"]]. Dango Daikazoku without its vocals but it has a beauty of its own.
* The epic TearJerker, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi7QyhkGJ88 "The Place Where Wishes Come True"]].
** Also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tix_s6K9NU0 "The Place Where Wishes Come True II"]], played in two of the important reconciliation scenes.
** And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjGNTiYFFdc Lia's Vocal Version of it]], which, unfortunately, [[CutSong was never used in the series]], but WAS used (to great effect) in fanmade visual novel ''Clannad: The Past Path''. [[http://clannadppvisualproject.wordpress.com/downloads/ Check it out here.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAXjtldHwTY "To the Same Heights"]].
** And the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VaoV8mtH2TU remix version]] used in the basketball scene in the anime.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsMTLkuMBp4 Piano Arrangement Version]] is no slouch either.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_67RDMBEuQ "Distant Years"]]. Cue rivers of tears.
* The ending for every arc in the ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'' visual novel, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6_9PbsAuWs "Kage Futatsu"]].
* Ushio's Theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2c8zfWQgkU "Shining in the Sky"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElNwSmAgCGc "Ten Thousand Miracles"]]. Just listen to it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wpb3XRGZfFU "Memories of a Distant Journey"]]. Simply amazing.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrH0nVv8hbI "The Girl's Fantasy"]]. Ambient, breathtaking, enchanting, and downright hypnotic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTkCJxUKzYw "Over"]]. Melancholy, yet upbeat. Heartbreaking. Played in Episode 18 when ''Clannad'' employed the CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds mechanism.
* The GaidenGame, ''Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~'' also has an excellent soundtrack. The opening song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9h9MJFbO1w "Light colors"]], and the ending, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YriByfkn8w "Life is Like a Melody"]], in particular, are just ''amazing''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZrWOSiYJjg "Nagisa Warm Theme Piano"]] is possibly one of the most heartwarming themes on Clannad.[[spoiler: When Tomoya finally meets Nagisa and decides that meeting her was the best thing that could have happened in his life this music is the best. It depicts quite well the love of Tomoya toward Nagisa.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaSJ_GGHCV0 "Nagisa ~ Saka no Shita Wakare" ("Nagisa ~ Parting at the Bottom of the Hill").]] At first it's played over [[spoiler: Nagisa's death and Tomoya's subsequent vision where he left Nagisa rather than lead her to the moment where she met an untimely death]], making it a TearJerker moment to start. It then becomes SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic when it's repeated [[spoiler: after Tomoya's [[ResetButtonEnding second chance]] and realization that meeting Nagisa was the best thing that happened to him. The music starts as Nagisa survives Ushio's childbirth,]] leading directly into "Chiisana Tenohira" above to highlight a [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome wonderful ending]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOXW8DDSH9Q "Town, Flow of Time, People"]] plays whenever something sudden or amazing is happening; which means it plays at many of the greatest moments. A worthy song for it, too. Sometimes specifically starts at around 1:45 to maximize the music's impact.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AG4wFOe8c8 The vocal version]] of the same song is just as great and moving.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdk_76z38bA "Roaring Tides"]], a theme which, like "Town, Flow of Time, People", plays during some of the important scenes.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMqtkQcYyxA "Roaring Tides II"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNSq1qf5ZFk "Snowfield"]] are both gorgeous songs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adhFhMpIe7g "A New Life Reborn"]] plays only twice in the series, but is honestly one of the most effective pieces due to the placement.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I011ZAB_BXg "Komorebi (Sunlight Shining Through the Trees)"]]: [[TearJerker heartbreakingly]] beautiful.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKplzJRAuGo "Ana"]], used to great effect during [[spoiler: Kyou's ending in the novel.]]
