I find Opeth's mild stuff to be beautiful. Benighted is one of the best and most beautiful songs ever and all of damnation is awesome.

I totally agree that Opeth's softer stuff is beautiful. I personally think Patterns in the Ivy II and Isolation Years are quite beautiful.

Hey man, I fix'd your post, hope you don't mind.

Yeah, the NIN version is pretty emotional too, but the Johnny Cash version is just so haunting because it was recorded pretty much right before he died.
Don't know if these have been said:

Elliot Smith - "Between the Bars"
Warren Zevon - "Keep Me in Your Heart"
Smashing Pumpkins - "To Forgive"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Hey"
Aerosmith - "Seasons of Wither"
Pink Floyd - "Marooned"
Mars Volta - "Asilos Magdelena"
Lykke Li - "Tonight (Live Acoustic on Youtube)"
"Natasha Bedingfield - "Soulmate"
Mandy Moore - "Umbrella"
Incubus - "Southern Girl"

Tenacious D - "Dude, I Totally Miss You"
The Beatles - Abbey Road Medley and "Something"
Peter Gabriel - "The Book of Love"

The Angel and the One by Weezer

"There are two wolves fighting inside all of us - the wolf of fear and hate, and the wolf of love and peace." The grandson listened, then looked up at his grandfather and asked, "Which one will win?", The grandfather replied, "the one we feed".

brian eno anyone?

Yes! I don't listen to a lot of his music but "St Elmo's Fire" is one of the happiest songs ever and "By This River" is possibly the saddest song I have heard.

I am not a huge fan of Animal Collective like a lot of people nowadays, but i do like a lot of their songs, and in my opinion "Fireworks" is the most beautiful song ever. It is just so powerful.

I have to be in the mood to listen to all three of those songs. I don't just listen to them whenever, especially "Fireworks". Here is a link to all three:


By This River:

St Elmo's Fire:

You can't find me another song that can make sick and creepy so sweet and sexy.

Nothing is stranger than being anonymous.

It may just be that the Italian makes this song sound so exotic and beautiful but it's still brilliant.

Also the outro of Selkies by BTBAM always gets me too.

I'm going to throw in Lazarus by Porcupine Tree.

I agree. Half Light would be another PT choice for me.

Also, pretty much anything by Sigur Rós / Jónsi.
