So I am watching the newest Top Gear Special and Jeremy plays James a song, I look over at my wife and tears are pouring down her face
and she's like that's so sad.

So I want to know what's your trigger? Do you or your SO have a song or scent or something that just triggers an intense emotion?
And what emotion?

Child and animal abuse, as we see many cases of worst extreme severity in the media these days.

When I see or read these articles my heart cries before the tears come.

Yeah for sure, but I was thinking more along the lines of irrational emotions or strange associations. Like crying when you see peanut butter or something...

No, cannot say unnatural emotions.

Unless you can include nostalgia, which hits me very badly sometimes.

We were listening to older music over the weekend and this song had me fighting tears. It reminded me of when hope for change was still fresh. Still love my country, but the disillusionment I feel now is a far cry from those feelings of hope.

I didn't come here for feels :crying:
This does it for me...if you watch it with the scene, it reminds me of

During my lifetime I have dedicated my life to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal for which I hope to live for and to see realised. But, My Lord, if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
To believe in something, to the point where you are willing to discard your flesh & soul for, Is beautiful.
