The most beautiful songs

help me, I keep listening to this one particular song at the moment and its so beautiful and just takes me to this special place.Landslide by Fleetwood Mac, but Im actually listening to a version The Smashing Pumpkins did.
I was wondering which songs you consider beautiful, gentle and bring you to a special place.
Im looking for non U2 songs here.

I can listen to Landslide (Fleetwood Mac version only) over and over again. That song is truly beautiful.
Sheryl Crow's "I Shall Believe" is also a beautiful song.

Cool thread! Beauty is my favourite thing in music. I dunno if all of these are gentle, though. Like The Unforgettable Fire--one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard but it's not gentle to me.

Sting--Children's Crusade, Fragile, Why Should I Cry For You, The Wild Wild Sea, Fields of Gold, Shape of My Heart, I Was Brought to my Senses, A Thousand Years

Police--Invisible Sun, Spirits in the Material World, I Burn For You

Crowded House--Private Universe, Kare Kare, Whispers and Moans, Nails in My Feet, Fingers of Love, Don't Dream It's Over, Weather With You

Neil Finn--Faster than Light, Into the Sunset

Led Zeppelin--That's the Way, All My Love, Thank You, Battle of Evermore, The Rain Song

Robert Plant--Big Log, 29 Palms

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant--Shining in the Light, Heart in your Hand, Blue Train, Yallah, City Don't Cry

Simple Minds--See the Lights, Belfast Child, Mandela Day, Waterfront

Jeff Buckley--Dream Brother, Corpus Christi Carol

Depeche Mode--When the Body Speaks, Freestate

Midnight Oil--Blue Sky Mine, The Dead Heart, Kosciusko, Truganini, My Country

Radiohead--Street Spirit, Bulletproof, High and Dry, Fake Plastic Trees

Smashing Pumpkins--Crestfallen, Once Upon a Time, Annie-Dog

Pink Floyd--Goodbye Blue Sky, Wish You Were Here

Emerson Lake & Palmer--Still You Turn Me On, Jerusalem, From the Beginning

Yes--Roundabout, Shoot High Aim Low

Hmmm, some songs I've put here that I haven't listened to in a million years...I must soon...

I agree. I have a very vivid memory of listening to that song while spending the night at a friend's house in 6th grade. He always listened to the radio as he fell asleep, which was strange to me at the time. It always takes me a while to finally get to sleep, so I was lying awake after he had drifted off and this song came on. I already liked the song a lot, but that was the first time I realized just how beautiful it is.

~ Aphex Twin - goon gumpos, Everyone I've Lived With (3rd song of first disc of "Selected Ambient Works Vol. II"), Moo Kid (9th song on "...I Care Because You Do")
The reason I give the number of each track is because I'm still not clear on his numbering system on these cds. I really should just go and look 'em up on the net.

~ Belly - Sweet Ride

~ Bjork - All is Full of Love (video version)

~ The Cranberries - Twenty One, Disappointment

~ Depeche Mode - A Question of Lust, Waiting for the Night, Higher Love, The Bottom Line, When the Body Speaks

~ Enya - Caribbean Blue

~ P.J. Harvey - Catherine, Electric Light, One Line, Beautiful Feeling

~ Led Zeppelin - Goin To California (I have never heard any of their albums, but I heard this song on the radio several times)

~ Low - Words (if I had to pick the 3 most beautiful songs, this would be one of them), Slide, Shame

~ Mazzy Star - Into Dust

~ NIN - A Warm Place, The Great Below

~ Portishead - Pedestal (the most beautiful thing about this one is her voice)

~ Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees, Bullet Proof, Street Spirit, Airbag, Let down, A Reminder, How To Disappear Completely

~ R.E.M. - So. Central Rain, Find the River

~ Smashing Pumpkins - Obscured, Landslide, Stumbleine, To Sheila, Once Upon a Time


I wanted to list so many more, but I think I narrowed it down quite a bit.
