Most Peaceful Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Moon Over Ruined Castle - Jackie Evancho

Peaceful, contemplative... Smooth as Japanese silk. - BobG

AKA "Moon Over The Castle Ruins".
Sung in Japanese, and available only on the Japanese release of her CD, Jackie's voice flows like liquid silver on this ethereal number.

Amazing that she performed this traditional folk song in the original Japanese.

A very classic music that give me a peaceful to sleep or rest. - BeaM456

Far from peaceful. Loud!

Great piece of music. Just relaxing
