Top 11 Songs That It's Acceptable For A Man To Well Up To

The other day, Mitch Berg listed some Bruce Springsteen songs that bring him to tears. That staff here at Nihilist In Golf Pants frowns on such displays of sentimentality, especially when they result from listening to the pseudo-populist babblings of The Boss. However, we do recognize that certain music can pack an evocative emotional punch. And so we offer The Top 11 Songs That It's Acceptable For A Man To Well Up To:

11. Copacabana (At the Copa)

10. The USMC Anthem

9. The Ballad Of The Green Berets

8. Flowers of the Forest

7. American Trilogy

6. The Star Spangled Banner

5. The Battle Hymn of the Republic (original version)

4. God Bless America

3. How Great Thou Art (at a funeral)

2. Taps

1. Amazing Grace

If I am understanding this "patriotic" musical theme correctly.....does that mean "In the Navy" by the Village People is also acceptable?

I tear up everytime I think about the exploitation of Native Americans at the hands of this band.

Are you sure you're not getting weepy thinking about that counselor at camp who helped you explore your manhood that one crazy and confusing summer, Marcus? We are talking about the Village People here.
