Truly beautiful songs

Those very, rare songs, that have true meaning and really get to you- a beautiful listening experience.

Bruce Springsteen- Streets of Philadelphia.

Name one, I need a greater repertoire.

"In Paradisium for Requiem" - Gabriel Fauré / Jean Michel Nectoux

A beautiful piece of music and instantly recognizable. Used in both The Thin Red Line and 28 Days Later.

I'd like to agree, but I can't hear that part without imagining Jim Gordon bashing in his mom's head with a baseball bat. Very disturbing.
