Has a song ever hit you squarely in the side of the head like a sack of industrial bricks?

some of the ones that have smacked me silly are...
"Only One" - Yellowcard
"I Want My Life" - Smile Empty Soul
"Digital Love" - Daft Punk
"Minerva" - Deftones
"Boyd's Journey" - Damon Albarn & Michael Nyman ["Ravenous" Soundtrack]
"Trailer Trash" - Modest Mouse

The first one is the most recent, and man did it hit me hard, the only thing thats hit me near as hard was "Butterfly Effect" and that hit me harder, brought me to tears. [I'm a sappy dope.]

Hands Down-Dashboard Confessional
Indie Rock and Roll-The Killers
Again I go Unnoticed-Dashboard Confessional
Your House-Jimmy Eat World
She Talks To Angels-Counting Crows
100 Years-Five For Fighting
Meant To Live-Switchfoot
I Dare You To Move-Switchfoot
Thousand Mile Wish-Finger Eleven

Only One is an awesome song, but I'm not that big a romantic, so it's hard for that sort of song to make me just go "wow...".

Ofcourse. Actually, that kind of things happen quite often if you listen to music very much. Here are few songs that I recall doing so:

Minulla on sanottavaa! & Hyvä ihminen (Timo Rautiainen & Trio niskalaukaus)

Pidä kädestä kiinni & Saalistaja (Indica)

Blood red roses (Uriah Heep)

Take it easy & Life in the Fast lane (Eagles)

Nemo (Nightwish)

Musta Aurinko (Juice Leskinen)

A couple of real good songs, in my opinion that is. There's lots of more stuff, but it's way to much to post.

Several of Snafta's (though not all — Three Doors Down? Ew).

Recently I heard "Infinite Dreams" by Iron Maiden for the first time, and that had the same effect.

These pieces all brought me to immediate silence and contemplation the first time I heard them.
Most of them are quite beautiful.

Yes. At one time the few CDs I actually own were on a very high shelf. Well when that shelf collapsed they hit me very much like a brick. :)

Musically speaking, I've been hit my many bricks of varying consistencies.

Good bricks:
-"Human Torch", by Fastball
-"Somewhere Else", by Razorlight
-"You're an Ocean", by Fastball
(among others)

Bad bricks:
-"For The Best", by Straylight Run. Actually, I'd known this one for a while, but that's what came on right after I broke up with my last ex-girlfriend.
-"Whatsername", by Green Day
-"Yahweh", by U2
-"When I Fall", by Barenaked Ladies

And of course, there's always the Ben Folds Five song, "Brick". But that's just a weak, weak, weak pun.

I'm sure I'm leaving out some big ones, but this is what I can think of off the top of my head:

All of Rent, with the possible exception of "Out Tonight" (which isn't so much a brick as a... well, never mind)
Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi - Carl Orff (Carmina Burana)
Don't Look Back in Anger - Oasis
Wounded - Third Eye Blind
When I'm Gone - 3 Doors Down
Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve
Losing Lisa - Ben Folds
Speed of Sound - Coldplay
The Fallen - Franz Ferdinand
On Top - The Killers
The vast majority of Jesus Christ Superstar
Your Song - Moulin Rouge (I'm not a huge fan of the original)

--------------------
And though the musicians would die, the music would live on in the imaginations of all who heard it.

Wow. I've somtimes heard pop songs by strings, and it always sounded very... unusual.

Some more songs came to my mind:

Flight of the bumblebee (played by trombone) - Chrisitan Lindberg (the trombone player)
Lohengrin, introduction 3 akte - Wagner
Bernstein Mass - Bernstein (really weird)
Verdi requiem, dies irae - verdi
Jazz suite No2 - Shostakovich
The bolt, suite from the ballet - Shostakovich
Symphony 2, movement 2 - Rachmaninov.
The piper - Abba
Super trouper - Abba

there are many more music pieces which I love, start crying when heard, or simply fall silent, but tht list would be too long.

Well, I didn't mean it was a bad song. I just meant it was the kind of emotional brick that you don't really need when you're having a good day.

Bad brick = melancholy-inducing song.

And how could I have forgotten The Killers? Just the opening of Somebody Told Me has the force of a brick...
