"Flying" songs

Someone mentioned in "Where the Album Has A Name" that Miracle Drug, based on the snippet leaked, sounded like a "flying" song to him; and I totally agree. That's exactly how I feel about MD and other songs; I just couldn't find the right word to describe it.

To me, Zooropa (the first half), A Sort of Homecoming, About Her (Malcolm McLaren, especially from 2:30 to 3:15), Hands Away (Interpol) and Teardrop (Massive Attack; a song I strongly recommend to anyone who hasn't heard it) are all examples of "flying" songs.

In these songs, the music just tends to soar away in a majestic yet simple manner.

I love that kind of song and was wondering if you guys knew any other song that would fit this description...?

"So Alive" by Ryan Adams does it to me.

"Clocks" by Coldplay
"Sweet Child O'Mine" by Guns N' Roses (the guitar intro)
"Where the Streets Have no Name" by U2
There's plenty more, my mind is just right now

'never stop' by echo and the bunnymen [not some of it, but mostly the piano bit that comes in at 1:21 or so]
