Default What is the most beautiful song to you?

The signatures of several members on this forum have, at one point or another, claimed that a certain song is "the most beautiful song ever written", possibly quoting lyrics in their signature along with the proclamation. The thing is, not everyone has made their feelings on beautiful works of music clear. In this thread, you may post your opinion on what the most beautiful song to you is. If you are inclined to post lyrics, or describe what is so beautiful to you about the song, you may.

My most beautiful song would probably have to be the song Motion Picture Soundtrack by Radiohead. A keen observer may notice that I have quoted lyrics from this work in my sig.



red wine and sleeping pills
help me get back to your arms
cheap sex and sad films
help me get where I belong

i think you're crazy
maybe
i think you're crazy
maybe

stop sending letters
letters always get burned
it's not like the movies
they fed us on little white lies

i think you're crazy
maybe
i think you're crazy
maybe

i will see you in the next life


imo this song is quite wonderful, because it is the last song in an album full of electronic experimentation, and an almost... watery texture in some songs (maybe this is just me, I dunno), and then you get to this song, which is almost like an old man's dying breath. The first verse is accompanied only by organ (or something that sounds like an organ, I'm not really sure about the exact instrumentation), but then once you get to the end of the first chorus, there is a momentary lapse in music, that's just the right length, I swear, and then the organ and vocals kick back in, but this time accompanied by incredibly beautiful harp glissandos (maybe it's not harp, but once again, it SOUNDS like a harp). It's just awesome. And the way he sings it too. As you can see, I can't really describe its beauty, just go buy Kid A now or something.



So uh, you can post yours now.

I think the song Oracion, in the Darkrai movie is beautiful. (Yeah I know it can be any song but that's what I think.) It makes you feel all wonderful and happy inside, at least to me. And it's very calming. Everytime I listen to it I get tears in my eyes. :3

Do You Like Waffles is truly the most heartaching song ever written. Telling a beautiful story of today's youth's love of waffles, pancakes and french toast and how they can't wait to get a mouthful...

I cry wheneer I listen to it. <3

the basement scene is dark and dusty
the musty smell of stale air
cobwebs dangle overhead
people stumble down the stairs
let’s get this party started, yo
the band are in the corner of the floor
their songs are pretty kick-ass
we're dancing like we've never danced before

the music is loud
the kids are so young
all over the world
they wanna have fun
the music is so loud
it drowns out the talk
all over the world
just give us more rokk
the music is loud
the night is so young
all over the world
we wanna have fun
the music gets louder
please don’t call the cops
all over the world
we just wanna rokk

the kitchen scene is damp and sticky
they're lined up at the keg of PBR
we're yelling conversations
thru the floor you hear the keyboards and guitar
I’m getting kind of antsy
I just came up here to get some air
This isn’t where the music’s at
I guess I’m going back down there

the music is loud
the kids are so young

the basement scene is hot and sweaty
bodies packed from wall to wall
the band are tearing thru their set
the encore is the best of all
let’s keep this party going, yo
we’ve got nowhere else to be
someone yells, "less talk more rokk"
mostly unironically

the music is loud
the kids are so young

I think Dream Theater's Hollow Years is most beautiful to me. Every time I hear it, it feels like the first time. The music is so lovely and the lyrics are sad and kind of sweet. <3

Good choice but Space-Dye Vest is still better.

Either My Immortal by Evanescence or Broken by Seether (with Amy Lee; other version just sucks).

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Mabye I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time
You let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving to
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a god above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And it's not a cry you can hear at night,
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Is tied with:

I'd say, Let it be by the beatles, everytime I listen to it, I almost cry a little, it's so touching and nice, but also very sad at the same time...

Kelly Clarkson - Breakaway.

Quote:
I grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I'd just stare out my window
Dreamin' of what could be
And if I'd end up happy
I would pray

Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I prayed
I could breakaway

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes, until I touch the sky
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
I won't forget the ones that I love
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Want to feel a warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get on board a fast train
Travel on a jet plane
And breakaway

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes, until I touch the sky
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
I won't forget the ones that I love
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging around revolving doors
Maybe I don't know where they'll take me but
I've got to keep moving on moving on
Fly away
Breakaway

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
Though it's not easy to tell you goodbye
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
I won't forget the place I come from
I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Echoes by Pink Floyd

Quote:
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no one called us to the land
And no one knows the where's or why's.
Something stirs and something tries
Starts to climb toward the light.

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me.
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can.

And no one called us to the land
And no one crosses there alive.
No one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun....

Almost everyday you fall
Upon my waking eyes,
Inviting and inciting me
To rise.
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning.

And no one sings me lullabyes
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky....

His father burned his skin
His father sent him to his death
He was ten years old

Her name was Naomi
Beautiful round face, so ashamed
Told me how to please a man
After school in the back of a bus
She was doing it every day
She was eleven years old
She was eleven years old
She was eleven years old

Her name was Sheryl
Black hair, like an electric space
She would pretty paint my face
She was a very good friend
Her father would come to her in the night
She was twelve years old
She was twelve years old

His name was Donovan
He was a very good friend
The cards were stacked against him
He was selling cocaine
The last time I saw him
He was thirteen years old
He was thirteen years old
He was thirteen years old

His name was Charles
He said he was in love with me
We were both fourteen
Then I had to move away
Then he began to smoke crack
Then he had to sell ass
I don't know where he is
I don't know where they are

I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole,
The sands of time for me are running low...

Running low--ooohhh...
When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there's some sort of error?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is this really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
It's not easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears flow but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
If there's a God then why does he let me go?

As I walk my life drifts before me.
Though the end is near I'm not sorry.
Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away.

Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
Don't worry now that I have gone.
I've gone beyond to see the truth.

When you know that your time is close at hand,
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah...Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah..................................

Life Support from RENT or Love Heals by Jonathon Larson (who also wrote RENT).

Written for this charity, which helps people with AIDS and aims to educate people about it.

It's beautiful. And very sad~

Quote:
Like a breath of midnight air
Like a lighthouse, like a prayer.
Like the flicker and the flare, the sky reveals.
Like a walk along the shore that you've walked a thousand times before
Like the oceans roar.
Love heals.

There are those who shield their hearts
Those who quit before they start.
Who've frozen up the part of them that feels.
Don't freeze your heart
In the dark they've lost their sight
Like a ship without a star in the night, but hold on tight.

Love heals
When you feel like you can't go on
Love heals
Hold on to love, it'll keep you strong
Love heals
When you feel like you can't go on
Love heals
Hold on to love, and it will bring you home

Love heals when pain's too much to bear
When you reach out your hand, and only the wind is there.

When life's unfair
When things like us are not to be.

Love heals when you feel so small, like a grain of sand
Like nothing at all.

When you look out at the sea, thats where love will be
Thats where you'll find me
You'll find me.

If you fear the storm ahead
As you lie, you lie awake in bed
And there's no one
No one
No one there to stroke your head
And your mind
Your mind
Your mind reels

If your face is salty wet, and you're drowning in regret, just....

Don't forget (8x)

Love heals
When you feel like you cant go on
Love heals
Love, love is gonna carry you home
Love heals
When you feel like, when you feel like you can't go on
Love heals
Hold onto love and it will lead you home
