Exactly what the title says, anything from the bizarre to the serious, the awkward and embarrassing to the soul movingly beautiful.

If I sing for any longer than thirty seconds, I start to tear up. I wish I knew why.

And commercials that feature sad dogs gets me, every dog darn time.

Every time someone dies in a movie or tv show. Those commercials where the old tool is rejected for the new product. There was a commercial with an iron who sang I'm Mr. Lonely. That made me cry.
This commercial makes me very sad.

There are two distinct, sad moments that make me teary: The death of Skyman in Infinity, Inc. and Wilson floating out to sea in Cast Away.

I'm sure there are more, but those two I know for sure.

Sad stories, death of friend or relative, and perhaps thinking of time lost or things not done with those who have died.

Hearing about someone, a real person, commiting suicide, even if I don't know them personally. I don't actually cry but I do get that tingling sensation in my tear glands as if I'm about to, specially if I hear they had young kids.

Sad country songs. I am a big sloppy sap for them. Tom T. Hall, Keith Whitley, even one particular Alabama song that I'm too embarrassed to name can get tears streaming down my cheeks. I kind of like it, though, it's a relief to quickly cry it out to a song and then go back to your day. Although it's not lost on me that the songs that get me the most are about fathers and my dad died when I was young, so there's surely some catharsis going on there.

And of course sad things that happen to people close to me in real life.

Movies and comics don't really do it for me. The last comic that made me cry was We3, and that one gives some strong, shameless tugs at the heartstrings with abused pets. If they make a movie the soundtrack will just be Sarah McLachlan singing "In The Eyes Of An Angel."

I'll admit it. (Although I'm not embarrassed to say.) Titanic. But not Jack's death scene, sad as that is. Instead, it's those final moments of the sinking, starting around the time Jack and Rose return to the deck, and begin making their way to the stern. The ship is tilting more and more, people are screaming, bodies are falling left and right, the ship starts breaking up. Yeah, that all gets me every single time. It's not just because James Cameron so expertly captures the emotion of it all, but because it combines with the knowledge that it actually happened, and that real people actually went through it.

My contact lenses.

And Hollywood is great at pushing my buttons, especially when the movie has a great score. I cried at the end of Glory when the Union soldiers were being thrown into a mass grave together, both white and black. (Probably when Denzel Washington and Matthew Broderick died as well.) I've probably cried for every movie scored by Hans Zimmer at some point in the movie.

Good film, but it's this scene from Glory that gets me...

Paradox hits the nail:

Pets being lost, injured or killed in fiction. Gets me every time. Screw the humans, it's usually their own fault anyway. ;)

Yeah, well it doesn't make me "cry" per se, but I get really angry when domesticated animals get hurt, I remember one time I saw a golden retriever (she wasn't "my" dog) got its back legs get ran over by a car, I screamed for the car to stop, but they didn't stop. I ran to the dog and she was still alive, I remember that she had a collar so she belonged to someone. You would think a dog in that state would be defensive but she just curled up in my arms yelping. I carried her to my friend's truck and we sat in the back all the way to the vet hospital. She was still alive when we dropped her off and told the vet people to phone the number on the collar. I don't know if she made it, but that was the closest I was to crying for something's else pain other than my own.

Also, I've had a few friends commit suicide/accidental deaths(car accident) over the years, and even though I was sad for all of them dying but I only kind of cried for one of them....... So on some level I think I might be a sociopath.

Edit: grammar

I still think the saddest scene in comics ever was in Iron Man. Blacklash takes after Stark Industries Security Chief Vic Martinelli, ending up destroying his house. One panel, where Vic cradles the lifeless body of his Cocker Spaniel Peanut...I'm almost tearing up right now thinking about it.

Not necessarily 'pets' per se (though, in a sense, most of them were) but this is pretty much the only problem I have with the 'Panther's Rage' storyline that ran in Jungle Action: the leopards, gorillas, wolves, even fricken dinosaurs that ended up dying at T'Challa's hands. I hold T'Challa to a higher standard than most superheroes, and I was annoyed to see that he wouldn't extend a bit more mercy to the jungle critters that happened to be sicced on him by the real bad guys.

I cry like a baby. I cry just thinking about it. I thought about it earlier today and started tearing up a bit.

Okay, the Alabama song that makes me cry is "Roll On (18-Wheeler)." It's a stupid song, but the father in it is so determined to get back to and be there for his family I can't help but get all snotty and snivelly.

Usually on the rare occasions I do tear up its due to people being kind or selfless. Also sometimes if I'm watching some documentary about social progress.

Great replies so far, thanks for opening up everyone!

I'll share one moment where I couldn't stop crying, and even two years on it still chokes me up.

Back in 2012 my dad had a heart attack, which he felt coming on at about 3 in the morning. Everyone was asleep and, not wanting to wake his kids or cause them panic, he threw on some warm clothes, called the ambulance, and walked himself down the stairs to wait for the paramedics to arrive. When I woke the next morning my mom told me what had happened and when we got over to the hospital seeing him hooked up to everything and looking so frail and weak and tired just made me break down.

In comics? Lots of stuff in Grant Morrison stories (that's probably the one area where people who hate his work agree with me), and the ends of Preacher and New Frontier.

On a related note, this makes me cry every time:
