  • Tanz der Vampire has at least a few of these-- this troper finds herself crying like an idiot just listening to "Stärker Als Wir Sind". Or thinking about listening to it. Or pondering the lyrics too much. What it is about it, I don't know, but there's definitely more than just that.
  • But the lyrics are so strong and hopeful in the face of darkness! And Sarah's part is soaring and happy! Now, Rebecca reacting to Chagal's death with a slow, sad reprise of his theme tune? That's a tear jerker right there, especially when you consider it's the last we see of Rebecca, who up until then has been a minor comic role. Almost everyone else in the play gets something at least roughly approximating a happy ending, and Rebecca exits three quarters through the first act sobbing and alone.
  • Oh, fine, sell me on it being happy and soaring. But I'll still have a moment during Unstillbare Gier. Every time someone tries to talk me out of calling Tanz a tearjerker by saying "but it's a comedy!", I make them actually sit down and watch what happens in between jokes.
    • "Unstillbare Gier" TOTALLY counts. (Though I have to give you some credit for your opinion of "Starker als wir sind" after all- I wrote a filk of it adapting it to an RP situation, and said filk was apparently "sad and ominous".
