He's the singer for Motorhead (and quite a character).

I agree they should pack in the Queen name. While it's nice to hear the old classics live, the truth is no one should be attempting - and inevitably failing - to fill Freddie Mercury's shoes as the frontman for Queen.

Why would the front man for Motorhead ever consider doing a gig with Queen?

Adam Lambert never attempted to fill Freddie Mercury's shoes (no one can). Adam was being Adam. Freddie was Freddie. Adam was successful in being Adam and that's all that really matters. There is a whole new generation who are enjoying that music LIVE and I sincerely hope they take this fabulous show to other places around the world such as here in the USA and South America where people are begging Brian and Roger to come there.

Painting By Chagall by The Weepies and The Luckiest by Ben Folds because they remind me of my husband. I cannot get through them without crying, no matter how many times I hear them, or how great a mood I am in when they start playing.

Gracie by Ben Folds... even though it is a really sweet song it makes me think of a really hard time parenting my autistic son that I won't get into the specifics of, but I had to send him out of state to a special school at one point and we were making that decision when I first heard this song. It was a life saving and really fantastic turn of events for my son, but to this day I cannot listen to this song. It's about the unconditional love he has for his child, which is really fitting when you think about it, but for me it just brings back the pain of having to send him away.

And to lighten the mood a bit
Seasons In The Sun by Terry Jack, Billy, Don't Be A Hero by Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods, Old Shep - Original by Red Foly, and D-I-V-O-R-C-E by Tammy Wynette (yes I am a child of divorce) used to make me cry as a kid. Old Shep can still get to me if I am in the right mood. And I have been known to cry to Who Wants To Live Forever by Queen and to various parts of Pink Floyd's The Wall (2011 - Remaster) Mental illness is not pretty people!

But then if I am PMSing any old love song or sad song will get the water works going. :)

Home - Dianne Reeves
What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Both remind me of my dad (he loved Louis and there really hasn't been a 'Home' since he passed away.

Ian Fraser 'Lemmy' Kilmister was the bass player in Hawkwind in their classic lineup from 1971 to 1975. He was fired for being arrested in Canada on drug possession charges which were later dropped. Hawkwind is still around with Dave Brock the only original member running the show. If you're into scifi/fantasy they're worth checking out.

Savatage: When the Crowds Are Gone. It is one powerful song.

On a side note, the movie that gets me every time is Taking Chance w/ Kevin Bacon.

Sodenfir: Shallow responses? Genuine emotion? I was sincere about my choices. I believe most of the other respondents were likewise. Don't be so quick to pass judgment.

M.Schmalfuss-Good call on Savatage!-I would add Believe-Savatage. Very powerful and moving song.

"Running To Stand Still" - U2 (the stark helplessness of watching a friend kill herself with drugs.)
"The Sword of Damocles" - Lou Reed (in fact, all of Lou's "Magic and Loss" album, which was about the recent death of two of his closest friends and their struggles with cancer, is enough to bring one to tears. His heartfelt emotion is powerful.)

S. Mcnary: Agreed and I'd even throw in "If I Go Away" as well....
