I think I've Been High is REM's most beautiful song and one of the most beautiful ever. But that's just me. Most tend to dislike Reveal.

That is quite the song! I really like Hybrid's 'super collider' remix of it. So grand and soaring and just crrrazy. Not to all tastes though, being so techno and all

Sorry to monopolize the board here but there are so many great songs to list!

Sting: Fragile, They Dance Alone and Why Should I Cry For You?
Anything off of EmmyLou Harris' Wrecking Ball album.
If you own Joshua Tree you must own that album too!
Its the law.
Joseph Arthur: In The Sun (Peter Gabriel covers it as well on the Princess Diana tribute)
Anytime: Neil Finn

Actually I love the remix more than any other version of that song!
good call.
I thought I was alone in that!
I have a mix cd with that song and it goes right into Leave by REM but the slow remixed version.
They connect really well.

hehe. Bono's version is one of my.. lesser favourites.. of the many covers of that song. It's very interesting, though!

I did actually. I got it free cause I'm supposed to review it, but I haven't got around to it yet. It's good, but compared to piano versions of things like Christopher O'Reilly doing Radiohead.. it just gets a little barebones and slow for my tastes. I like it with the strings better.
