Have you ever been to a wedding where you saw somebody crying to the music?  At this sight, did you notice your own tear ducts welling up, too? Well, sort of like yawns, tears can be contagious at weddings when the right song is queued up. Weddings are filled with many happy moments, but occasionally, all of the excitement collides and manifests itself as a few tears. As a DJ, my vantage point allows me to witness the entire emotional experience that people go through. I never see this reaction to the music as negative; to the contrary, I know the guests are experiencing something memorable at that moment.  Whether it’s a slow song, the father/daughter or mother/son dance, or the touching first official spin around the dance floor as newlyweds, these are the top 10 songs that are most likely to make you shed a tear…
