It could be because the beauty of it or because it was playing at a certain emotion moment of that day/night. If so, which song and why?(If you're a macho man and say something stupid like you don't cry then don't even reply to this thread and gtfo.)

Has there ever been a Radiohead song that made you cry...

Oh yeah, quite a few songs actually, albeit it can depend on my mood (if that makes sense).
But I certainly have cried to No Surprises, Karma Police (specifcally the For a Minute...I lost myself part), Gagging Order, Exit Music, Lucky, Let Down, Go Slowly, How Can You Be Sure?, True Love Waits, the acoustic version of Subterranean Homesick Alien & (Nice Dream) and probably some others. At some point, all these songs have elicited tears. Maybe I am just overly sensitive haha.

Unexpectingly 'Reckoner' made the tears start falling while I was travelling on a public bus. It's not one of my favourite songs and does not mean anything in particular to me, but it conjured up some deep emotion for me that day and was like a release. It has affected me a few times since then also, but not to that degree. Pure emotion that song.

Let Down, True Love Waits, Street Spirit, Nude (especially the from the basement version, you know the part), Reckoner, Bulletproof, Fake Plastic Trees. Even High and Dry has gotten me.
Some of those just get me to the point, I don't actually start wailing. A song that can do that to me is instantly a favorite of mine. I'm never more engaged in a song as when that happens. I've heard people say they don't like "sad songs" but if they are good and take you there, I love them.
