The prettiest song you've ever heard?

Recommended Posts

[quote name='Corey']I didn't think there were many people the boards that liked classical. My hat is off to you. And if you like Beethoven, you should listen to Pachelbel's Cannon In D Major. Amazing song.[/quote]

Sweet! I guess I'll join the club! I love Classical music. Being an avid true Metal fan, it's kind of hard [I]not[/I] to like Classical music, as the two go hand-in-hand.

Anyway, the prettiest song I've ever heard has got to be Chainsaw Dismemberment by Mortician! :laugh:

No, but seriously now. I'm gonna have to go with Eternal Wait by Ensiferum. It's not the prettiest song I've ever heard, but it [I]is[/I] the first that comes to mind, so I figure it's worth listing here.

Lyrics:

Over the forgotten sea
The voice of an angel is calling for me
Somewhere where the mountains collide
That's where I'll find my new life

I have carried this burden so long for you
That nothing but sorrow I feel
I have let myself believe
That nothing would hurt deeper than truth

Never has the wind blown like thousand years ago
Everything that I've known has left me on my own
Never have I felt the rain fall down like the burning flames
All I see is the face of eternal wait

I hear your silent cry
Lost in the rainy night
No reason to live for
One reason to die for

I am the one who has fallen into the path of shadows
And that road never seems to end
I am the one who has drowned into the river of tears

[COLOR=Sienna][FONT=Times New Roman]The Tragically Hip wrote a song back in 1994. It was called Inevitability of Death. It was a tribute to Terry Fox. It's beauitful and thougtful and an overall great tune.

Puffy lips glistening skin
And everything comes rushing in
We don't go to hell
memories of us do

I get a sense of connectedness
Exclusive tight but nothing dangerous
We don't go to hell memories of us do
And if you go to hell
I'll still remember you

But I thought you beat the death of (I thought you beat...)
inevitability to death just a little bit (I thought you beat...)
I though you beat the inevitability (Yeah...)
of death to death just a little bit (Yeah...)

Terry's gift is forever green
It got me up and back on the scene
We don't go to hell
just our memories do

Fantastic gap common space (Fantastic gap common space)
Open concept in your smiling face
we don't go to hell memories of us do

And if you go to hell I'll still remember you[/FONT][/COLOR]

Hmmm, in this case, I'd have to go with [b]Deceiver of Fools[/b] by Within Temptation. This band in notorious for making very pretty/beautiful songs.

[ALIGN=Center][b]Deceiver of Fools[/b]

He told the tale so many times
About the dream not meant to be
In a world of the free
He plays with your mind

As faith for the future faded fast
He grows strong with their displeasure
It sets him free

Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules with fear
Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules again

He feeds on fear
Poisons the truth
To gain their faith
To lead the way
To a world of decay

He rules your heart
He will sell your soul to the grave

No hesitation he'll make
He belongs to the dark

Please awake
And see the truth
He can only be
If you believe what he tells you
Remember who you are
What you stand for
And there will always be a way

In my heart there is a place
In my heart there is a trace
Of a small fire burning
A sheltering ray shines through this night
Although it 's small, it's bright
But darkness is lurking

He will sell your soul to bitterness and cold
Fear him

Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules with fear
Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
Shall he rule again?[/ALIGN]

Good stuff. Another very pretty/beautiful/whatever the hell song in my opinion is [b]The Heart Collector[/b] by Nevermore. It's a very slow, sad song, the verses of which are acoustic.Then, for the chorus, it slams you with a powerful chord progression in heavy metal electric guitar form. Most excellent.

[ALIGN=Center][b]The Heart Collector[/b]

To see the actor without tears
Dark rivers carve the years between the lines of self control
In my psychotic karmic fear,I own your tears anyway
And I am you and we are not afraid

And we won't be here for long
The heart collector sings his song that's slowly boiling over

Nevermore to feel the pain
The heart collector sang
And I won't be feeling hollow for so long
Nevermore to feel the pain
The words fall out like fire
Just believe when you can't believe anymore

The stage is empty now
I hope we hold and cannot allow
the corrupt eclectic takes his fatal bow

And we won't be here for long
The heart collector sings his song again

Nevermore to feel the pain
The heart collector sang
And I won't be feeling hollow for so long
Nevermore to feel the pain
The words fall out like fire
Just believe when you can't believe anymore[/ALIGN][/FONT][/COLOR]

First, there's[B] Leave Melody Counting Fear [/B] from [B]Serart[/B]. This song doesn't have any actual fathomable lyrics, but it's a pretty song, with great use of a Japanese style guitar. The way the two vocalists sing, and how the melody is played are all great. This is the only song that I will dance to no matter what.
...
This song is, like, depressing, and yet I can't help but find it pretty. I mean, it's brilliant! It's... indescribable!

[B]El Manana[/B] by [B]The Gorillaz[/B]

Summer don't know me no more
Eager man, that's all

Summer don't know me
He just let me love in my sea
Cause I do know, Lord,
from you that
Just died, yeah

I saw that day,
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

Don't stop the buck when it comes
It's the dawn, you'll see

Money won't get there
Ten years passed tonight
You'll flee

If you do that,
I'll be some
To find you

I saw that day,
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

I saw that day,
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

[quote name='Corey']I didn't think there were many people the boards that liked classical. My hat is off to you. And if you like Beethoven, you should listen to Pachelbel's Cannon In D Major. Amazing song.[/quote]

I LOVE classical music. It's pretty musch the only musical genre I listen (ot know well, I was bron on a Danish island in the Baltic :animeswea ) I LOVE Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major: I perform that with the North German String Quintet all the time.
But, I am quite fond of the Flower Duet from Lakme by Massenet, I believe. I also like the Hebrides Overture by Mendelssohn and Liebestraume by Liszt and the Pathetique Piano Sonata by Beethoven and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Mozart.


About Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninthe Symphony in D Minor, Here's my review: It's absolutely phenomenal! The most emotional part to me is the Fourth Movement. It starts in a lower, more aggressive scale with timpani tremolos and trumpet blasts and then the double-basses playing a very low part followed by more timpani tremolos and trumpet blasts. Then it eventually makes it way to the cello solo playing the [I]Ode to Joy[/I] theme we all know and love. After the cello finishes the them, the double-basses, violas, violins, oboes, bassoons, and clarinets join. After the theme is completed that time, the instruments step up 2 and a half steps to G major. After that theme is completed, there comes the full orchestra part. After the theme is completed, it goes back to the opening theme. Then a baritone sings a solo. "O Freunde! Nicht diese Töne! Laßt uns anghemerene, anstimmen" The baritone then sings the theme, accompanied by pizzicato strings and woodwinds.

After he finishes the first verse of the theme, the full chorus joins and finishes. Afterward, a quartet of singers sings the first verse in harmony with different text. The chorus finishes the verse. Then, the same quartet sings a new theme with new text. After singing the first verse, the chorus finishes with many repeats. Then the opening theme is heard. There is a slight period of silence until the bassoons play a staccato theme finallt accompanied by flutes, a piccolo, a triange, cymbals, and the brass. After the theme's finished a tenor sings a solo. The men of the chorus then also join. After the theme is finished, We hear about 2 minutes of strings, brass, and woodwind playing an anxious-like melody that concludes with long, arpeggio skips.

Afterward, the French horns play a fanfare with woodwinds. At the climax of the fanfare, the strings join in. When that theme finishes we hear the mighty, all known [I]Ode to Joy[/I] theme, sang by full chorus along with the full orchestra. After that, the men of the chorus sing a new verse, often being echoed by the women. This takes place for about nine minutes until we hear soloists singing the original text with new music. After a note is held for 6 measures, The strings play a tremolo passage that is molto accelerando (becoming faster and faster) and then full orchestra and chorus. At the end, the chorus slows. After the chorus's last note, the orchestra plays the theme over and over. The finale is a loud timpani roll. The song then ends.

I hope you liked my wonderful review.

~ Tyler

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue][SIZE=1]Anything composed by Mozart is some of the best music ever created. The string quartets are simply exquisite. Beethoven was a great composer as well. Their musics simply dance and paint a beautiful in your mind.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

I like the song "Butterfly" by Mariah Carey, for some reason that song reminds me of something sad (cant put my finger on it) and I mellow out for a while, plus....its a nice and smooth song. Also, I like to sing along to the chorus because I use to be in chorus for a Catholic School and I miss it so much, its fun to sing along :catgirl:

The prettiest song i've ever heard would definitly have to be Hey There Delilah by the PLain White T's. It reminds me of me and my gf so its all good...

"Hey There Delilah"

Hey there Delilah
What's it like in new York city
I'm a thousand miles away
but girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Time square cant shine as bright as you
I swear its true

Hey there Delilah
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice its my disguise
I'm by your side

Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are getting hard
But just believe me girl
Someday ill pay the bills with this guitar
We'll have it good
We'll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I've got so much left to say
If every simple song I wrote to you
Would take your breath away
I'd write it all
Even more in love with me you'd fall
We'd have it all

Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me

A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they've got planes and trains and cars
I'd walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
Delilah I can promise you
That by the time that we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you're to blame

Hey there Delilah
You be good and don't you miss me
Two more years and you'll be done with school
And ill be making history like I do
You know its all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here's to you
This ones for you

Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
Oh its what you do to me
What you do to me

[SIZE=1]Pachelbel's Canon is definetly high on my list, and I definetly like Moonlight Sonata too. But the less classical side is more interesting, and if we're speaking in terms of beautiful, it would probably be [I]The Song Of Mana[/I]. Such melody.

Oh, there's so many other beautiful songs. "Pure Snow" and especially "Wishing for an Eternal Sky" are also very high on my list. There are others, but to try to order them would be a horrid task.

And Tyler, you sound like a hardcore band geek. Awesomeness! I play Clarinet and some very basic piano, so it's all good. I would love to play Canon, but it would probably be too difficult for our high school band. I'll be darned if I don't continue into highschool, though.

[COLOR=MediumTurquoise][SIZE=2][FONT=Century Gothic]Well, i'm not much of a fan of My Chemical Romance, but i thought one of their songs
was really pretty, for some odd reason.
It's called "Cemetery Drive"
it goes:

This night
Walk the dead
In a solitary style
And crash the cemetery gates
In the dress your husband hates

Way down
Mark the grave
Where the searchlights find us
Drinking by the mausoleum door
And they found you on the bathroom floor

I miss you
I miss you so far
And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard

Back home
Off the run
Singing songs that make you slit your wrists
It isn't that much fun
Staring down a loaded gun
So I won't stop dying
Won't stop lying
If you want, I'll keep on crying
Did you get what you deserve?
Is this what you always want me for?

I miss you
I miss you so far
And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard

Way down [8x]

I miss you
I miss you so far
And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard [2x]

Way down [9x]

that seems like a pretty song to me..[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

First of all love the sig and all, Alice Nine rocks.
But the prettiest song I've ever heard is by far Carnation.
It's my favorite.
Carnation
Janne da Arc

yasashii hizashi ni yureteru CAANEESHON
chikagoro anata no nukumori kanjimasu.
kizukeba anata no egao wa toshioite
ima sara osanai wagamama kuyamimasu.

A carnation swaying in the gentle sunlight,
these days, I feel your warmth.
If I notice your smile growing old,
now, childishly selfish, I'll mourn.

hiraita ARUBUMU no natsukashii omoide tachi to
watashi wo tsutsumu no wa itsu no hi mo anata deshita...

You were always the one that wrapped the dear
memories of this opened album around me...

tooku hanarete hajimete kizukimashita. anata no ai ni
itoshisa to kamishimeta "arigatou" kono kotoba wo
ano hi kara sukoshi otona ni narimashita.
demo nazeka anata no mae ja kodomo ni narimasu. itsuitsumademo...

Leaving into the distance, I realized for the first time. With the beauty
in your love, I reflected on this word "thank you"
and because of that day, I became a little bit more of an adult.
But without knowing why, before you, I become a child. For a long time...

tooku hanarete hajimete kizukimashita. anata no ai ni
itoshisa to kamishimeta "arigatou" kono kotoba wo
ano hi kara sukoshi otona ni narimashita.
sasayaka ni "genki na egao misete" to negaimasu. itsuitsumademo...

Leaving into the distance, I realized for the first time. With the beauty
in your love, I reflected on this word "thank you"
and because of that day, I became a little bit more of an adult.
I pray modestly for you to "show me a happy smile". For a long time...

But I do love Classical and all. And Save Me by Queen is almost as good.

Aeris' theme tune from Final Fantasy VII is kind of pretty I guess. Although a lot of Final Fantasy songs are. This one just springs to mind when thinking of a pretty song, I can listen to it at anytime and it never gets old. The piano version is also very well done and even though the original is pretty old now it still sounds great.

[color=#4B0082]I don't know about dancing to it, but I really love Belinda Carlisle's Summer Rain. It has a sad, yearning, but determined feel to it that really strikes me as beautiful. It's one of my favorite songs out of everything--and I mean [i]everything[/i]--that I've yet heard.[/color]

[quote][b]Summer Rain[/b], by [b]Belinda Carlisle[/b]

Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can hear him saying
Nothing will change
Come dancing with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain on our skin
And his kisses hotter than the
Santa Ana winds
Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain

I remember laughing till we almost cried
There at station that night
I remember looking in his eyes

Oh my love, it's you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Doesn't matter what I do now
Doesn't matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

I can hear the whistle
Military train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can here him singing
Ooh, love is strange
Come dance with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain pouring down
And we poured our hearts out
As the train pulled out
I can see my baby
Waving from the train
It was last time that I saw him
In the summer rain

Oh my love, it's you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Doesn't matter what I do now
Doesn't matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Every time I see the lightening
Every time I hear the thunder
Every time I close the window
When this happens in the summer
Oh, the night is so inviting
I can feel that you are so close
I can feel you when the wind blows
Blows right through my heart

Oh my love, it's you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Every night and every day now
Though I know you've gone away
Somewhere in my heart I'm always
Dancing with you in the summer rain[/quote][color=#4B0082]Another song that I have to mention is Melodies of Life, from Final Fantasy IX. You can find the Japanese lyrics, English translation, and English release lyrics on [url=http://www.squaresound.com/lyrics/ff9/melodiesoflife.html][u]SquareSound[/u][/url].[/color]

[SIZE=1]One of my pretty songs is "Seven Years (Acoustic)" by Saosin.

[I]Taking on seven years
the holy ghost had left alone
Test my arms, kick like crazy
And I've been trying way too long
only push the way off to fight you
Now I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure
Getting off my chest
the story ends...

I would find a way without you...
I would find a way without you...

That mistake was gold
And I know that without you
is something that I could never do
That was why staple the eyes and
seven dates for me to sell machines
and tear on

Seven years you assured me
that I'd be fine if I complied
only push the way off to fight you
Now I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure
Getting off my chest
the story ends
Without you....

I would find a way without you...

That mistake was gold
I know that without you
is something that I could never ever ever ever ever...
That was why staple the eyes and
seven dates for me to sell machines
and tear on

Don't treat me, I'm to blame...
Don't treat me like I ever accused you[/I]

But the most beautiful song I have ever heard had no lyrics. It was the instrumental version of Anna Ni Issho Datta no Ni, from Gundam Seed. It just moves me everytime I hear it.[/SIZE]

[COLOR=RoyalBlue][SIZE=1][FONT=Tahoma]Final Distance by Utada Hikaru and Through the Door from FMA.

These are the two most prettiest songs that I've ever heard in my life. I actually cry whenever I hear these songs because it reminds me of what they really mean and how they relate to the characters. The lyrics are sweet and even a little bit sad, but they are really beautiful. Whenever I'm in the mood for something sad or even dramatic, I listen to the songs.

Another would have to be Passion from KH II. I always get a little sad whenever I hear this song... I'm so emotional. :o[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

Where'd You Go? By Fort Minor is sad, but pretty. The lonely keyboards and great beat accompanied by Mike's great voice make for an awesome song.

Where'd You Go?

Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.

She said "Some days I feel like ****,
Some days I wanna quit, and just be normal for a bit,"
I don't understand why you have to always be gone,
I get along but the trips always feel so long,
And, I find myself trying to stay by the phone,
'Cause your voice always helps me to not feel so alone,
But I feel like an idiot, workin' my day around the call,
But when I pick up I don't have much to say,
So, I want you to know it's a little ****** up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',
Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,
Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone,
Please come back home...

You know the place where you used to live,
Used to barbecue up burgers and ribs,
Used to have a little party every Halloween with candy by the pile,
But now, you only stop by every once and a while,
****, I find myself just fillin' my time,
With anything to keep the thought of you from my mind,
I'm doin' fine, I plan to keep it that way,
You can call me if you find that you have something to say,
And I'll tell you, I want you to know it's a little ****** up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',
Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,
Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone,
Please come back home...

I want you to know it's a little ****** up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', no longer debatin',
Tired of sittin' and hatin' and makin' these excuses,
For why you're not around, and feeling so useless,
It seems one thing has been true all along,
You don't really know what you've got 'til it's gone,
I guess I've had it with you and your career,
When you come back I won't be here and you can sing it...

Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
Where'd you go?
I miss you so,
Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone,
Please come back home...
Please come back home...
Please come back home...
Please come back home...
Please come back home...

"Days" by HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR is easily the most beautiful song I've ever heard, dispite the fact it's in a language I can't understand (but not for long hopefully). The vocals are a piece of art and the guitar is wonderful. Especially the slow, flowing solo. Nearly makes me cry every time I hear it

For Whom the Bell Tolls. By Metallica
(Hardest song ive ever heard in my entire life and I find the pure heaviness quite beautiful.)

Manic Depression.Jimi hendrix

(He is Jimi Hendrix I mean come on nuff said.)

Black Hole Sun. By SoundGarden

(Great vocals I mean almost perfect vocals and the guitar is great. Also the message is awesome beacuse all people at one time or another wants all lthe people who F**k with them to just go away. That emotion is portrayed so clearly and beautifully that makes it my favorite song of all time)

Sunshine.By Alice in Chains(Good ole fashion guitar mixed with Bono class vocals)

Atwa.By Sytem of a Down(Lead singer back then had a awsome voice and this was the first hard rock song I heard that I liked so it has a speacial place in my heart)

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Hard To Concentrate

Hustle, bustle and so much muscle awww

The time has come to deviate and

All I want is for you to be happy and
Take this moment to make yoiu my family and
Finally you have found something perfect and
Finally you have found

Death defying this mess I'm buying
It's raining down with love and hate
And I find it hard to motivate and

Estuary is blessed but scary your
Heart's about to palpitate
And I'm not about to hesitate and

One to treasure the rest of your days here and
Give you pleasure in so many ways dear and
Finally you have found something perfect and
Finally you have found... here we go

Do you want me to show up for duty and
Serve this woman and honor her beauty and
Finally you have found something perfect
Finally you have found... yourself

With me... Will you... agree... to take
This man... into your world...
And now... we are as one...

My lone ranger the heart exchanger
Is living in this figure eight
And I'll do my best to recreate and

Sweet precision and soft collision awww
Hearts about to palpitate
And I find it hard to seperate and

All I want is for you to be happy and
Take this woman and make you my family and
Finally you have found someone perfect and
Finally you have found... yourself[/COLOR]
