      If you are referring to poignant in the sense of profoundly moving:
      Amazing Grace
      How Great Thou Art

        This may be more in the "Haunting" category than "Poignant", but hands down it's got to be:

        "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald " by Gordon Lightfoot. No one who lives in a Great Lakes state and knows the story can help but have a chill go down our spine each time it comes on the oldies rock stations.

        Or when the first cold winds of November start blowing

          I have a great documentary about the Edmund Fitzgerald that I occasionally show my students.

              Judging from the posts, poignant means different things to different people; undoubtably reflecting personal history.. and we are all right.
              I really had not analyzed my selections until I saw the variety of responses. I just knew they had meaningful lyrics and good melodies and timing.
              Now I see that the central theme of all my choices is acceptance of lost love and wasted opportunity...

                  Actually, it's "When the gales of November come early", but I wasn't trying to quote the song. I was simply stating my own feelings.

                    Lived in Thunder Bay on the north shore when it was called Port Arthur. I was there for two years when I was 6 and 7 years old. All I can remember about it is the cold(low today will be 21 degrees) and "The Sleeping Giant".
