Ten songs proven to make you cry -- if you're British

Hey, ladies, think your male friends are resilient to emotion? Perhaps you've never seen them tear up, save for that lone teardrop that forms at the end of Rocky IV. Well, if you're looking to evoke a little emotion from a partner, a recent study suggests you can do it with a song.

The study, titled "Songs to make a grown man cry," surveyed 1,757 respondents in the U.K. for their responses. A few surprising songs show up, but nothing from way out in left field. It's not like you'll find a John Cage composition on here (some of those will certainly make us cry). Let's take a look at the scientifically proven tear-jerkers.
