Most Beautiful Songs of All Time

The title speaks for itself, but please try to include some variety as to which artist and time period you add. This list is for the most beautiful songs we've ever heard, not simply the most beautiful songs of our era.

81 Claire de Lune - Claude Debussy

Yes finally some recognition for a really beautiful piece and a very talented composer. Just because classical music isn't what's popular right now doesn't mean that modern music is better.

It's an incredible impressionistic piece that beautifully plays with minor chords and challenges time signatures producing a melodic message that soothes and tears at your emotions. He is a sensitive musical genius.

Was listening to the song and thought how beautiful it was and decided to look up 'most beautiful songs of all time' and coincidentally someone had listed it as one of them!

This and wish you were here certainly belong in the top ten in my opinion

82 Festival - Sigur Ros

Sigur Ros is quite an amazing band. It always delights us with marvelous beautiful songs. - keyson

83 Magic Works - Jarvis Cocker

I would like to say that this song has a healing power that few songs in the world ever possess. It feels as if you are embraced tightly and will have nothing to fear. Definitely songs of this kind have added more than I can tell to the charm of Harry Potter movies.

This song is magical, stirringly beautiful - symphonie

84 Wind of Change - Scorpions

This masterpiece belongs so much higher!

85 This I Promise You - *NSYNC
86 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

Should be much higher, and it's not even my style of music. But the marriage of song and artist is so perfect in this case. Then again, I think Celine could sing the phone book and make it sound incredible.

This song is so beautiful and has so much emotion in it, which is what makes it one of the most beautiful songs in my book.

I LOVE CELINE DION! Titanic is my favorite movie of all time... The piano version is beautiful too!

It's the most beautiful song l hve ever heard
