Personally nothing can really beat the Moonlight Sonata in my eyes...

But other songs worthy of being called Beautiful are:

Fox in the Snow- Belle & Sebastien (hmm maybe pretty is more accurate?)

When the Lights Go Out All Over Europe- The Divine Comedy

She is Suffering- Manic Street Preachers (I guess not conventionally beautiful, but conventional beauty is so boring )

And just to be the extremely sad geek for a moment...I always thought the piece of music playing in the snowy mountains in Final Fantasy X was quite beautiful

The first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Everyone knows it.

It's so beautiful that it often makes me cry.


Present day music... I'd have to say Radiohead's Exit Music (For a Film).

I wonder if there is anybody who thinks it is crap

Unless of course you count those fake punk kids who would probably say its crap, but in general they aren't allowed opinions

I also have to add Keane's 'Untitled 1' to that list.

Pink Floyd's 'When the Tigers Broke Free'
and Bruce Springsteen's 'Jungleland'

I don't care for the Moonlight Sonata, but probably only because I've had to play it 6,346 times. But yes, pretty.

My vote for most beautiful song ever? Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings." That's the one that makes me cry.

Marooned
Us and Them
Wish You Were Here
The Great Gig in the Sky
Shine on You Crazy Diamond Parts I-V
and Nobody Home.

Nobody Home is one of my all-time favorites.

I don't see how anyone could think Moonlight Sonata is crap. It's one of those things that even people who hate classical music can love.

I first heard Moonlight Sonata whilst playing Earthworm Jim on Sega many many many moons ago. Ah, memories.

hmm, that's a tough question.

Dark Side of the Moon was the one that solidified my fandom.


But I love The Wall and the movie so much, followed by:
Animals
Wish You Were Here
The Final Cut.

anything is pretty much a tossup after those.

I know you were asking LMP, but I must butt in. Grantchester Meadows. It's a lovely song, written by Waters.

Quote:
Icy wind of night be gone
This is not your domain
In the sky a bird was heard to cry
Misty morning whisperings
and gentle stirring sounds
Belied a deathly silence
That lay all around

Hear the lark and harken
To the barking of the dog fox
Gone to ground
See the splashing
Of the kingfisher flashing to the water
And a river of green is sliding
Unseen beneath the trees
Laughing as it passes
Through the endless summer
Making for the sea

In the lazy water meadow
I lay me down
All around me golden sunflakes
Settle on the ground
Basking in the sunshine
Of a by-gone afternoon
Bringing sounds of yesterday
Into this city room

Hear the lark and harken
To the barking of the dog fox
Gone to ground
See the splashing
Of the kingfisher flashing to the water
And a river of green is sliding
Unseen beneath the trees
Laughing as it passes
Through the endless summer
Making for the sea
