Songs With the Most Beautiful Lyrics

The Top Ten

1 Surf's Up - The Beach Boys Surf's Up - The Beach Boys

I really didn't appreciate Surf's Up until a month or two ago, when I heard a piano demo Brian Wilson did in 1966. As sentences, the lyrics make no sense, but when put to that melody, they take you to heaven for the duration of the song. - PetSounds

These lyrics almost capture the intense beauty in Van Gogh's paintings. Enough said. - PetSounds
