Aw man this hits the heart so, so hard - it's like you're feeling Thom Yorke's absolute pain, not only through his lyrics, but through that achingly awesome voice of his.
Filled with pain and emotion Radiohead delivers a song that may not be catchy the first time you hear it, but gradually you will find it pulling you in. Perfectly captures the feeling of being invisible.Listen to sample
Definitely was a hard decision to pick between this song and "How To Disappear Completely". In the Radiohead song, the part that always gives me chills is at the end when it almost sounds like he's crying, "I'm not here - this isn't happening. " But in this song... Geez. It's so... Yeah, hauntingly beautiful. Damn eerie. Elliott Smith was the master of hauntingly beautiful songs.
The first time I heard this it conjured such an image that I can still recall it vividly. The back story is also just as striking as the song.Listen to sample
This song is perfect from the intertwined duets of voices and piano to the lyrics. It makes you want to stare at everything in wide eyed wonder. A musical version of the book "Sophie's World". It was used in the trailer for "The Lovely Bones"Listen to sample

Not one of their better known songs, off one of their less popular albums. Spaced is from the album Pisces Iscariot and is like a build up that never ends. Just the dizzying sensation of drums, slow guitar and Billy Corgan's distorted voice. A great song to go to sleep to, in a good way.Listen to sample
A soundtrack song in Donnie Darko, Carpathian Ridge is mostly just a barely audible humming untill near the end where the simple piano keyes are so stark and beautiful I cried the first time I heard them, and many times since.Listen to sample
I will be the first to admit that I tear up every time I hear this song. The countdown at the beginning sets you on edge for the terrible beauty that ensues. The lyrics are wonderful and yes, even the saxophone gets to you.Listen to sample
The guitar solo is haunting! Totally haunting. With the pain the crow has within him this actually depicts it beautifully
I first heard this song whilst watching "The Crow" Which by the way is an excellent movie. It talks of whispering shadows and crow black dreams. How could I not put this on my list? Robert Smith's almost weary voice in the last verse gives me shivers every time.Listen to sample
