Most Beautiful Songs

Well in my opinion it has to be U2's One and Bad, Jeff Buckleys Halleujah and Waterloo Sunset by The Kinks all Beautiful in their own right but what do the rest of ya's reckon?

There are really quite a few I'd like to list....but I don't have me a lot of time.

That said, I'll at least toss up Radiohead's "Motion Picture Soundtrack." Along with several other Radiohead songs, I think that this song is probably one of the more beautiful pieces of contemporary music ever composed. Can I get a, "Hell yeah?"

if such a thing as a most beautiful song would exist it would have been written by Brian Wilson

"Everything's Bad" by the Tossers is the most beautiful song ever written.

What do you mean by beautiful? Slowly cinematic? Sweetly romantic? Term confuses me.

Anyway, I think 'The Drugs Don't Work'.

"God Only Knows" the Beach Boys
"Blackbird" and "In My Life" the Beatles
"Ghost" Indigo Girls
"Winter" Tori Amos
"MLK," "One," "Original of the Species" U2
"Verdi Cries" 10,000 Maniacs


**note: Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" version is indeed beautiful, but it's actually a Leonard Cohen song.

Don McLean - Tapestry
Don McLean - Vincent
Don McLean - Empty Chairs
U2 - Running to Stand Still (Zoo TV, live at Sydney version)
U2 - MLK
U2 - October
Simon & Garfunkle - Sounds of Silence
Radiohead - Exit Music (For a Film)
Chris de Burgh - A Spaceman Came Travelling
Pink Floyd - The Gunner's Dream
The Beatles - Blackbird

Okay, and this isn't really a song as such, but Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor Op. 13...also known as Pathetique. It's amazing, and it often moves me to tears.

Off the top of my head:

Radiohead - Street Spirit
Something Corporate - Konstantine
U2 - Lady with the Spinning Head (Extended) - Maybe not the whole song, but I love the part near the end with the strings!
Coldplay - The Scientist
Lamb - Gabriel
