How about Temple of the Dog "Hunger Strike"? Not a love song but it fits the rest of your description.

We have a winner!

Dobby got it with More Than Words.

Way cool.

Sent you a PM with the list to choose from.

Thanks to all who tried. I am actually surprised anybody got it from my lame description.

How are we defining "most beautiful song ever" now?
Is it SONG or music?
If it's SONGS, what kind of songs; "songs" have been in existence for hundreds of years.

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

A slow afternoon in the warehouse today so I tried to think of a few songs that still raise the short hairs when I hear them.....

White Rabbit-Jefferson Airplane
A Day in the Life-The Beatles
All Along the Watchtower-Jimi Hendrix
Supper's Ready-Genesis
Uncle Remus-Frank Zappa

and my oldest musical memory
Over the Rainbow-Judy Garland

Are we having fun yet?

Pink Floyd - Learning to Fly
Tom Petty - Freefalling
Metallica - Nothing Else Mathers

Wow!

I'm weird...
I just came up with that. (didn't spent days thinking about it )

These will never get old to me.

I'm an hip-hop fan but like music in general as long as it's not Country or Classical. I have seen at least 80 different groups/signer live, from the new sensations to the greatest

ie. Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Linkin Park, Rammstein to name a few, most shows occur in the summer festival in my City.

Cheers,
Gui.

Ozzy Osbourne (post-70's Sabbath) is just too whiny-sounding when he sings to ever sound beautiful to me.

I've never heard that song, but only if someone with a more appropriate voice was singing would it stand a chance with me.

Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F Major

This piece is on the Golden Record that was launched into space on board the Voyager space craft in 1977. This song officially represents all of man kind in hopes of being intercepted by alien creatures 40,000 years from now. Great choice!

Which recording did NASA use for Voyager? Deutsche Grammophon?

I'm not sure if they used an actual recording by a record label as opposed to their own recording....

It is interesting to note that Johnny B Goode by Chuck Berry is also on that recording...

Looks like they used a recording from the Munich Bach Orchestra. Google only brought up one cd, but no recording dates are listed. The album cover does look like it was recorded back in the day. Nothing from Wiki, though.

If one rock song had to be on it, can't go wrong with Chuck.

Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah has been mentioned many times in this thread performed by various artists but the KD Lang rendition is by far the best in my opinion, after that is the Rufus Wainwright version from Shrek.

Not hard to tell I am Canadian eh? All three mentioned above are as well.

When I was younger I had a built in "beauty" meter in the hair follicles of my forearms. I'm fifty now. They don't work as well. It's a real shame.

Used to be that new Beatles, Allman Brothers, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, or other songs would do it for me. Hell, once it was a song called "Who We Are" by a band called CAMEL.

Later on it might be something by Seal, Tom Waits, Talk Talk, U2 or other that I was into in college. But it was happening less and less. I remember around that time when "1979" came on for the first time while riding in my car. I almost had to pull over. Goosebumps. I don't think music ever gets less beautiful.... we just lose a little of our emotionally raw connection to it as we age.

Just when I thought I'd lost that musical intimacy forever, one evening some years back Sarah McLachlan breaks out on the radio with "Adia". There was that old familair rush of blood to the head and goosebumps on my arms.

Thanks for that Sarah! Won't say it's the most beautiful song ever, but it reached in there were all else had failed to for years. Someone mentioned Rufus Wainwright. If you like him you ought to give his sister Martha a listen on her self titled 2005 disc. Wow. Beautiful stuff there and there's a family resemblance. In a similarly beautiful vein is Beth Orton's "Trailerpark" cd.

Sorry to go on..... so much beauty, so little time.
