According to a new study by PRS for Music (hat tip: Vulture), the song that most reliably produces this effect for gents is R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts,” followed by Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” Yeah, those are some tear-jerkers, all right.

Have any of those songs ever made you weep, dudes? What about any other tunes? We promise we won’t laugh. While you think it over, check out a live performance of “Everybody Hurts” after the jump and see if you can keep your eyes dry.
