I've always really enjoyed the Bridge Across Forever album by Transatlantic.

Duel With the Devil, Suite Charlotte Pike, Bridge Across Forever, and Stranger In Your Soul are all very relaxing songs to me with beautiful melodies.


Also, I enjoy several works by The Flower Kings. The entire Flower Power album (disc One and Two) is lovely, and some more of my favorite are World of Adventures and Theme For A Hero on the album Back To the World of Adventures.


As for the more beautiful piece i've EVER heard? Well that's arguable between hundreds of songs, and it probably just depends on my mood.

I also must say one of my favorites is Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, and The End by none other than The Beatles. Golden Slumbers is such a pretty song, and when my parents were separated, the song Let It Be could easily make me cry. In my opinion, all of these songs are gorgeous, and everyone should have a chance to listen to them.

Interesting thread. Sadly I have no answer. I have thought long abaout it over several days before answering. But I cannot. I have heard much music. So many tunes have moved me. But there is not one above all others that stands out as a pure beautiful above all others. To me all music is beautiful.

I admit defeat in the face of such a deep question. I have no answer.

Pssst Polly... It's "See me, feel me". ;)

The Who's The Rock (also on Quadrophenia) is a piece of music that I find to be absolutely mesmerising. Quadrophenia has four main themes, each based on a Who member. During The Rock all four pieces come together. Just brilliant.

Mark Knopfler's Dire Straits is one of my favourite bands. Their song On Every Street (on the album by the same name) is enchanting. It first starts out as a ballad about someone who's looking for a lost friend, and it ends more cheerfully (though still keeping the same melody), as if the lost friend is found. This song knocks your socks off, especially live.

I find it to be a real shame the great Dave Matthews Band isn't as popular over here in Europe as it is in Amerika. They are one of the most incredible bands around and are known for their profound live act. Impeccable musicality for sure. Their cover of All Along The Watchtower gets to me every single time I listen to it. And this is just one song in their amazing repetoire.

I cant even begin to come up with my idea of THE most here. But I recently relistened to this tune from one of my favorite bands and favorite drummers. Mavis's verse in particular is just heartbreaking. And listen for her last word at the very end.
Knowing Rick and Richard are gone makes it sad but Mavis makes it beautifull.

"IN A SILENT WAY"


Written by Joe Zawinul, featured on his first solo album "Zawinul", Atlantic Records (1971). This tune has been covered by many such as Miles Davis, Santana, etc.

Zawinul probably the most famous jazz composer of europe. Played in Weather Report and Joe Zawinul Syndicate.

This version is by the Metropole Orchestra (Peter Erskine on drums for that gig!)

I don't know exactly why, but this little song hat a big emotional impact on me when I heard
(and actually saw the clip along with it) the first time. Still love it. Notice the very big drumsound -
I think it's funny how singer/songwriters (more so on other tunes than this) feature big fat
drum sounds which must have been played really hard in the studio, along with acoustic
guitars and stuff, which is actually impossible to do live... Just doesn't go together without
tricking the volume mixing.
