I have an official Pearl Jam bootleg from Columbus (I think) and there's a kickin' version of Black on there. I'm not too huge a fan of guitar solos that go on and on, but the jam at the end is amazing.

Pearl Jam - Crazy Mary sounds beautiful, even though I think the lyrics are of fairly dark material.
Ash have some songs that can be classified as 'sweet' (the free all angels stuff, especially) although i'm not sure about 'beautiful'.

For “Beautiful” songs - currently I would pick 3 songs from Daniel Lanois new album Shine:

1.) The first track I Love You is a duet with Emmylou Harris (more of a backing vocals part). An excellent song with the typical and famous Lanois “sound” (rich and lush atmosphere). Absolutely gorgeous.


2.) The Canadian release of Shine has a bonus track called Red. It is a beautiful song and I would place it among the very best songs on Shine. It is a quiet song with acoustic guitar and piano and it has a sunny summer day kind of feel. Red creates an atmosphere and a picture of two lovers laying on the grass under a willow tree near a river. My Canadian version does not list Red on the back of the CD cover but Red is listed on the CD itself as track 14. You can listen to it here:


3.) The second track is Falling At Your Feet is a duet with Bono. It has always struck me as having a Simon & Garfunkel type of feel. The version on Million Dollar Hotel Soundtrack is 4:54 whereas this version is 3:41. At present I prefer MDH version.

And yeah... like a hundred more...
I love Beautiful Day too.

I love that song.

Agree with the mention of "Stay" by U2, would also throw "Heartland" and "40" in there as well.

Other songs:

"In Your Eyes"-Peter Gabriel
"Nights In White Satin"-Moody Blues (DEFINITELY consider this song beautiful)
"Unchained Melody"-Righteous Brothers
"A Whiter Shade Of Pale"-Procol Harum (the music in the song is lovely)

u2 - running to stand still, slug (up there with one of my favorite songs of all time), mofo, love is blindness, the wanderer, stay, 40, trying to throw your arms around the world, all i want is you.

i could go on for a while with that there band...

radiohead - sail to the moon, true love waits, how to disappear completely, exit music, like spinning plates, street spirit, airbag

sigur and ros - svefn, olsen, pop song, nothing song, luft, aegius, von

sparklehorse - its a wonderful life

future sound of london - meadows, papua new guinea

beck - lost cause, guess im doin fine

dandy warhols - godless (the beginning of this song coupled with the horn section is pure bliss).

verve - the drugs dont work, history

smashing pumpkins - thirty three, perfect, 17

wilco - i am trying to break your heart
