Songs With the Most Beautiful Melodies

Beautiful melodies... There are so many. I could name about fifty songs that are too good not to be on this list. I've tried to balance well-known and lesser-known songs. Enjoy!

The Top TenXW

1Surf's Up - The Beach Boys

Backed by some of the most beautiful poetry ever written. - PetSounds

2The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed my list, anonymous. And, yes, Paul Simon has a unique quality to his melodies. But his songs were never quite the same without Art Garfunkel's vocal arrangements... - PetSounds

Such a delicate list! We thank you PetSounds. I definitely love all the songs that there are here, but I vote for the dreamlike 'The Sound of Silence' by Simon and Garfunkel. I was about to vote 'Vincent' which is also such a beautiful... Like a caress song, but then I felt the need to give my vote to Paul Simon's writing. I have a soft spot for his work. However, it is good to mention that Don McLean wrote Vincent himself and that he is an excellent songwriter as well.

3Here, There and Everywhere - The Beatles
4Dogs & Birds - Robbie Williams

Makes me smile and I love the lyrics

The dog said to the bird 'do you sing the same song every day of your life'
