From the Tabor catalogue I have to put "Joe Peel" in as a song that's hard to sing without choking up. Other songs, not in the folk genre that are powerful to me would be Patty Loveless singing "How can I Help you Say Goodbye" or Martina McBride singing "Independence Day." Back in my favorite realm of folk, when I heard Andrew Calhoun singing "Lord Gregory" and the line "She stood all last night at our gates, but I wouldn't let her in." Got me. Jez Lowe's "Last of the Widows" is also a powerful song. When I first heard Martin Carthy singing "Famous Flower of Serving Men" I thought that was brilliant and disturbing story (would make a great Ingmar Bergman type film). I've tried singing that around the house and it falls flat.
