I usually only listen to sad songs when I really need to cry and get all those emotions out. then I cry for like one or two hourse and feel much better afterwards. the songs that make me cry have always some kind of memory attached to them or they just have really sad lyrics.
here are my fave "IÂ´m gonna cry like a lil girl when I listen to these" songs:
1. Mariah Carey - Without you
2. Minnie Driver - Everything IÂ´ve got in my pocket

Actually, I only like to listen to that song alone, or on my Ipod...just a personal song for me...I also like his song Comfortable
Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton is a very sad song as well, and makes me cry...both because its beautiful and the reason he wrote it...
Another vote for Elvis's Can't Help Falling in Love...and I loved Fools Rush In
Dave Matthews So Damn Lucky...Lover Lay Down...The Space Between....Sleep to Dream Her
Sting's Fragile, If I Ever Lose My Faith in You
As you can tell, I think I prefer men singing these types of songs...

OH I really know what you mean!! Everytime! Doesn't make me cry just puts me in that mood, and there are a few songs from Staind that do it too!
I agree with Staind--It's Been A While, Evanessence--My Immortal, and lots by Sarah McLachlan but especially this one called When Somebody Loved Me. It was featured in the movie Toy Story 2 but don't let that put you off. It is so incredibly SAD, haunting and beautiful!
My other picks: Nothing Compares 2 U--Sinead O'Connor, Don't Speak--No Doubt, Girl I'm Gonna Leave You--Led Zeppelin.
