A Thoroughly "Beautiful" Song?

Is there a song that you can personally categorize as "beautiful"?

For me, that would have to be Sigur Ros' "Svefn-G-Englar." Such an ambient feel to it with haunting voices.

Of course, this is a totally subjective topic. What song would you say?

I agree on the Sigur Ros, melon.

- Marc Cohn - True Companion
- Beatles - Let It Be
- Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
- Simon & Garfunkel - Sounds of Silence
- Bruce - If I Should Fall Behind
- Radiohead - Exit Music

There are a hundred more, but that's what comes to mind at the moment.

My Sweet Lord - George Harrison (The sheer joy in his voice in this song just makes me love everything!)

Within You Without You - The Beatles (Melody, music, words... practically perfect in every way)

Beautiful Day - U2 (No question in my mind, this is one of the greatest songs ever written, imo)

April Come She Will - Simon and Garfunkel

And yeah... like a hundred more...

I'm having trouble separating beautiful from sad..it usually sad songs

I don't want to put a sad song on this list, I'm looking for beauty without sadness. I listened to Sinead sing "To Mother You" yesterday. It is beautiful, but also sad.
I am about to go to town with my birthday money...you guys here make Sigur Ros sound good. I deserve a new CD..hmmmm I'd like the Best of...big decision.
I'l come back when I find a beautiful and unsad song.

oh goodness...

jeff buckley-you and i, hallelujah, lover you should've come over, satisfied mind
u2-love is blindness, north and south of the river, all i want is you, mlk, stay, please, the list goes on...
pete yorn-crystal village, lose you, all at once, so much work
oasis-don't turn back in anger
rem-nightswimming, find the river, everybody hurts, sweetness follows
radiohead-nice dream
i can't even think straight...song overload...but whenever i hear these songs i just stop what i'm doing and get lost in the music...

i think a lot of songs are beautiful ...but right now my #1 choice is "you and i"...
