Circa Survive is great, but I wouldn't exactly say their songs are beautiful. But that's just my opinion.

It's more so the vocal and guitar melodies I find beautiful. Particularly on On Letting Go

Isis is amazing
Quote by sonicx2218

I know it's a remix, but it's done damn well. I love the original band, and I was originally going to pick one of their songs, but this is softer so I think it works better for the thread.

His voice is quite amazing. I really enjoy their Safe Camp session included on the end of Blue Sky Noise. Listening to Circa now

Why are people posting A7X... I wouldn't say their songs are beautiful at all... This is a really tough choice.

Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton
High Hopes - Pink Floyd
Porcelain - Moby
Plenty of classical pieces out there. Too many to name.
Coldplay's X&Y album was a real important album when I was younger.

A lot of the best songs/melodies are simple.


you must be deaf

Principles of Lust - Enigma

^Grapevine Fires is beautiful as well.

Listening to the song while watching the video still gets me in the feels even though I've seen it plenty of times. I don't know. Something about it just makes me feel peaceful.
5 of my favorites, in no particular order.

1. Alfie Boe's rendition of "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables, one of the few songs able to bring me to tears.

2. Bogoroditse Devo, We just took this song on a choir tour and it was magical. I can't find a recording that I feel does the dynamics quite correctly, but essentially the entire piece is pianissimo or piano, but there is a small section that goes to fortissimo within about half a second and no warning, i've sang this song literally hundreds of times and it has yet to not give me chills.

3. October - Eric Whitacre, another piece I've had the pleasure of performing, although sadly as a trumpet player instead of the woodwind section. This piece is fantastic, the choral version is very nice as well

4. My Way - Frank Sinatra, arguably my favorite song of all time. I don't know what it is about this piece, but it is just so easy to get lost in.

5. Accidental Babies - Damien Rice, a song that isn't particularly noteworthy, really simple typical Damien Rice stuff, but he has a way of connecting with the listener that I have yet to hear from another contemporary artist.
I teach private lessons in voice, hit me up if interested!
If we're not speaking classical music, probably (*fin) by Anberlin or Hoppipola by Sigur Ros
one of my favourite youtube videos of all time, this whole set is amazing, beautiful music. the first song grooves harder than anything and the second is just beautiful music, simply put. ive been dying to post this for a while and this is the most appropriate place i think

Jesus died for their sins. It would be a waste if they just didn't sin it up. If you ask me, it's almost unchristian if you DON'T eat the kiddies.

I think Ave Maria is a pretty beautiful song every time I hear it.

No need to, absurd generalizations aren't my thing.
Five more I shall include. Most of these are great choices you guys

You can kind of hear the end of The Velvet Underground in this song. Lou Reed's not singing leads in it (he didn't for a few songs on Loaded), it's on the end of their last album before that one shot abomination Squeeze, and it's the very end of their four album masterpiece streak. This album is also them at their most accessible during said streak. It's just such a bittersweet song. It sounds upbeat but it also sounds so sad. One hell of a way to finish off their streak.

You can put almost every song of John Lennon's solo material (well, on his good albums anyways). The vast majority of them are beautiful in their own way. They're all so humanistic and so raw. Whether he screams with such emotion over his parents, or if he fights for his beliefs, or even the many songs about Yoko Ono, you know you're always getting 110% from this guy. I won't say this is his most beautiful, because it's so tough to pick just one, but it certainly ranks up there. This is probably my favorite Yoko Ono song. Just everything about this song gives me emotions.

Anybody who has been on MuMu with me has probably had to listen to this at least once or twice. It may be twelve or so minutes but it honestly doesn't feel like it. It may be a bit hard to get used to her voice at first, but once it clicks, it will never leave you. The lyrics speak volumes and paint such an incredible abstract picture. The harp playing on top of the orchestration is so mystifying. The song just acts cinematically, and when I get to the climactic end, I always have my hair standing on end.

Until My Bloody Valentine's album is released this year (and hopefully won't let me down BUT IT WON'T BECAUSE OF BASED SHIELDS), this closer on my current album of the year (zomg spoilers) is simply mind blowing. Coincidentally, the album cover for Kill for Love looks similar to Loveless's, and I'm sure that's not a coincidence. Chromatics really experimented with layering on this lengthy cinematic album. The whole album has highs and lows about love and heartbreak. It has ambience leaving you in the cold, and uplifting pop tracks to try and give you faith again. The album ends off with this song, as the protagonist waits and waits and is surrounded by fear and nerves knowing that no good will come of this but she still tries anyways. It's so god damn sad

This last song hopefully hasn't been ruined by (500) Days of Summer, and if that movie introduced you to it, then all the better! Probably the most gorgeously facetious love song. It's so dark yet so poetic. So serious yet so playful. The bass is so catchy and the jangly guitars are so inviting, then that string section comes in and finally that final touch of the flute at the middle and at the climactic end always gets to me. I don't care if it's overplayed or overly talked about now. It's still one of my all time favorite songs.
Agalloch - A Desolation Song

Alcest - Sur l'Océan Couleur de Fer

Empyrium - The Ensemble of Silence

Katatonia - Departer

Opeth - Hours of Wealth

Wolves in the Throne Room - Dea Artio

And High Hopes by Pink Floyd, but already here...

The lyrics speak to me in so many ways
The first video in the OP has parts that remind me of Funeral for a Friend by Elton John.

That's all I have to say here. Carry on.

I'm a sucker for classic epics: Freebird.
I really love that first min or so opening. It always harps some emotion out of me, and that's how I measure a song in "feeling".
when you inject post-rock, ambient and shoegaze into your veins daily, one cannot simply pick just one song. I feel I could probably give an entire page worth of songs.. not to mention some have already posted songs I would have.
