Watermelon in the Easter Hay by zappa. Originally called "Playing a guitar solo in this band is like trying to grow watermelon in easter hay" or something.
There's also "Nothing as it Seems" by Pearl Jam.

the famous part of beethoven's 14th "moonlight" sonata and "naima" by john coltrane are the most flat out beautiful pieces of music i've heard.

the anothology version of "a day in the life" is incredible as well. radiohead has stuff too, like "let down", "motion picture soundtrack", and "how to disappear completely". "junk" by paul mccartney comes to mind too. i'm trying not too name any more because i want these to stand out. really, those first two pieces, beethoven and coltrane...if anybody has not heard them, you absolutely must.

Any day now, any day now I shall be released"

That would be the "Adagio Sostenuto"... and I don't think it qualifies as a "song," but if it did, I agree whole heartedly. "Let Down" and "how to dissappear completely" are so amazing...

My addition:

Black Out - Muse

Not really your typical beautiful song, but there's always been something about it that really made me happy.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
