Most Beautiful Songs of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Simply the greatest song known to man. The lyrics just envelop you at the beginning, and they take you on for a wild ride. As you reach the end, you are deeply thinking about life and all of its wonders.

The first half of this song is very beautiful (and sad), and it has a pretty cool part at the end which is sweet.

How is Lady Gaga, LADY GAGA, above Queen. This song deserves to be in the top five! No, top two, along with Led Zeppelin. - LostDream258

22Little Wing - Jimi Hendrix

This is truly why Jimi has been voted the greatest guitarist of all time, because nobody else could use a guitar as such a tool of beauty of love. R. I. P. Jimi Hendrix. - cruciel

Jimi was not just about setting his guitar on fire. He could use it as an instrument of angelic beauty, as he does in this song. - BobG

23I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

Well, I don't have to describe how great it is. The passion, The emotion, they're in the song. Whitney did a great job interpreting it in her own way. As it turn out, her beautiful voice build the emotion until the climax. That feeling of love, you can feel how much she loves him. I also love classical too but my favorite one is Chopin Etude Op.10 No.3 Chanson de L'adieu

This song is unbelieveable! Beautiful! She hits notes people only dream of hitting! I love her and miss her. RIP WHITNEY HOUSTON!

When I think of the greatest songs of all time... Many come to mind but this is always the first thought... Definitely a timeless masterpiece of music, tonality and range! Phenomenally Number 1!

Well, this song is beautiful.its voice is nice

26I'm a Believer - Neil Diamond

fairy tales... big deal.. my grandfather played this before he died.. it was so sad - SmoothCriminal

Not only meaningful lyrically, but the way the music interacts with itself, there isn't a prettier sound...

I can't help but loving this song, the lyrics are so personal and they make me feel strong and powerful inside.

I think Neil Diamond was one of the best singers of them all!

If this is the definition of 'beautiful' then I have to admit that I've truly lost my faith in humanity.

28Across the Universe - The Beatles
29Yellow - Coldplay
30Rainbow Eyes - Rainbow
31Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

Learned about this from my dad. Look at the comments on youtube people who have lost their loved ones very emotional and this song helps them through it

It's one of those songs that makes me stop and think about what really matters in life. I never casually listen to this song.

Wonderful, Wonderful song. Never ceases to bring a sad smile. If this were my list, it would be number one.

Captures life, love, loss and yearning like no other rock song.

32You Lookin at Me Lookin at You - Ozzy Osbourne
33Nightswimming - R.E.M.

This song is about reminiscing about your childhood. The vocals, lyrics and music are all beautiful.

34Under the Ivy - Kate Bush
35God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
36The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian
37Tears Don't Fall (Acoustic Version) - Bullet for My Valentine

Amazing song with the band but a deep song accapella

38Beyonce - Halo

I've never heard another song better at describing love. I think it perfectly encapsulates how wonderful helplessly falling completely in love with someone is.

Earth-shakingly beautifully. It takes the theme of love to a whole other level. It's not about sex, or money, just pure unadulterated love.

Beyonce has the most amazing voice

I love this song! It should be in the top 10!
