- The long opening sequence of Evita ("Requiem for Evita"). Particularly impressive since Eva/Evita can be seen as almost a Villain Protagonist - it just wasn't that way to the people who loved her.
- The entire last quarter of the show. Combination sad music + sad lyrics + basically her dying.
- "Eva's Final Broadcast", made especially sad by the faintness in Eva's voice and the way it begins to break near the end. "Don't cry for me, Argentina, the truth is, I shall not leave you. Though it may get harder for you to see me... I'm Argentina -- and always will be." It's tragically beautiful and beautifully tragic.
- The film version of "You Must Love Me" is another heart-wrencher especially as we see how her relationship with Peron has evolved. He honestly loves her for her and not what she could do for his career, and she feels the same way.
- "Another Suitcase In Another Hall" It was pretty much a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment, but that girl just seems so tragic. Somehow made worse by the fact that we really know nothing about her, just that time and time again, she gets kicked out and is forced to wander until she finds someplace else to settle for what she knows perfectly well will only be a short time. Is there anyone that really cares about her?
- The lyrics are pretty relatable for anyone who's gone through harsh times frequently during their lives and thinks that they never seem to catch a break. "You'll get by, you always have before", *sniff*.
- "This talk of death is chilling! Of course, you're not going to die..." Denial sets in for a moment for Peron. Even worse is that in Real Life, his previous wife died the exact same way, right down to the form of cancer. No wonder he went in denial, he must have seen his first wife all over again.
- "She Is A Diamond." Behold: "But on the other hand, she's all they have/She's a diamond in their dull grey lives/And that's the hardest kind of stone, it usually survives/And when you think about it, can you recall/The last time they loved anyone at all?"
- Eva's deathbed. "I saw the light, and I was on my way." It manages to be tragic and triumphant.
- The ending of "The Waltz for Eva and Che" ("Oh, what I'd give for a hundred years..." etc) can be this, especially considering the fairly lighthearted Snark-to-Snark Combat immediately preceding it. Just the fact that you can see (or hear) the exact moment Eva realises what's happening to her and that she's not going to be able to accomplish half the things she wanted to. It's no wonder Eva goes straight back to denying her own mortality after this until Peron outright tells her she's dying.
