'Beautiful' Songs, what are yours?

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by MattyB, Nov 2, 2006.

  1. Well, as queer as that title is coming from me,

    I saw in the general discussion area a thread about blood pumping ride music, and a couple of people were talking about Vast, and someone mentioned 'flames' was the most 'beautiful' some he's ever heard.

    I figured I could list some better ones :p

    Ben Harper - Morning Yearning
    (Also - Drugs don't work, Waiting for you, Please Bleed, Alone)

    NIN - Hurt
    (Maybe the softer cover by Johnny Cash)

    Damien Rice - Creep (Cover)
    (Also - Lonelily, Cold Water, Lonely Soldier - And 'prague' which is a hidden track at the end of Eskimo)

    Eric Clapton - Tears in Heaven

    James Blunt - No Bravery (Not a huge fan, but some may like it)
    (Also - Tears and Rain?)

    John Butler Trio - Peaces and Cream (or Peaces & Cream)
    (Also - What You Want, Life ain't what it seems)

    Pete Murray - Please
    (Also - So Beautiful, See The Sun)

    Powder Finger - My Kind Of Scene

    Jack Johnson - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing.

    That should get you started :p
  2. Oh, and if you were wanting to (legally) download some of these, my top 3 suggestions would be

    Ben Harper - Morning Yearning
    John Butler Trio - What you Want
    and try and get the hidden track at the end of 'eskimo' by Damien Rice, the track should be 18 minutes long.
    Or search for 'prague', it might come up.
  3. Tears and Rain....*sigh*

    All I want is you - U2...one of my fav songs ever.

    Umm...busy now...will come back later to add. :) :)
  4. The Ride of the Valkyries. :cool:

    Why are you guys sitting on your helmets?
  5. Hear you me & My Sundown - Jimmy eat world

    Far Away - Nickelback

    Chasing cars - Snow Patrol

    Drops of Jupiter - Train

    Till Kingdom Come & Amsterdam - Coldplay

    Better Man - Pearl Jam

    :LOL: this thread's going to be addictive MattyB!
  6. Ahhh, hear you me. top song! :D
  7. "If you see her, say hello" from Dylan's best album ever, "Blood on the tracks", 1974

    Closely followed by "Forever Young", by Dylan, but performed by Joan Baez on her 1978 double concert album, "From every stage"

    "Like an old fashioned Waltz", by the late lamented Sandy Denny

  8. Oooh...Creole Love Call - Duke Ellington. More 'sexy' than beautiful though. :)
  9. "Bittersweet" by Me'shell NdegeOcello.
  10. You speak the truth. Pretty much any slower, acoustic Jimmy Eat World song qualifies for this.

    Neil Finn's redition of Better Be Home Soon at last year's ARIAs. Saw it on MusicMax yesterday, and that was just so beautiful.

    Nina Simone - Sinnerman

    For some newer stuff

    Bloc Party - Like Eating Glass

    Placebo - English Summer Rain

    And such an absolutely brilliant song from a brilliant band: Swing Life Away by Rise Against. It's simple, cut back, and brilliantly written.
  11. Pink Floyd- Wish you were here

    Pearl Jam- Nothingman, Off he Goes

    Nirvana- All Apologies

    Rolling Stones- Angie

    Radiohead- Fake Plastic Trees

    Jeff Buckley- Last Goodbye

    U2- Bad, One
  12. "All I want is you" by U2 is a good one...

    But there is something about "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters that just gets me... I reckon they could sing it in Russian and it would still get me...
  13. Comfortably numb - Floyd

    What a wonderful world - Tom Waits

    My fathers eyes - Clapton

    Faraway places - Willie Nelson

    all on my mp3
  14. Mylo: Emotion 98.6
    Vanessa Mae: Theme From Caravans
    Mitsuru Hongo: Kiseki No Kane (Off the Sakura Wars Soundtrack) (Hee hee, it's easy to get into last fm's top listeners for obscure music)
  15. Judith Owen - I Promise You
    Sarah McLachlan - I Will Remember You
    U2 - All I Want Is You
    Train - Drops Of Jupiter
    10cc - Im Not In Love
  16. tunaranch - seeing as we're talking violins.. :) ...see if you can get a hold of Nigel Kennedy playing The End (The Doors). Beautiful!!!!
  17. Gee whiz, so many depending on my mood, here's a few that come to mind:

    - Bateman's Bay, You Tremble, London, I Still See You, Big Feeling, Throw It All (Jeff Lang)
    - The Flame (Cheap Trick)
    - If I Were A Carpenter (Swanee)
    - Queen Of Rain (Roxette)
    - Rocket Queen (Guns and Roses)
    - Never Say Goodbye (Bon Jovi)

    Reckon if I sat for a while, I could think of more, especially older ones. I have fairly wide musical tastes.
  18. That was me.

    ... and "better ones" ??? Yuck! :p
