Most beautiful thing I've ever heard!

Just my humble opinion. Whats your opinion of it?

Well...yeah, it's quite nice....but, the most beautiful thing I've ever heard....I don't know.
Totally unrelated (and also not the most beautiful thing I've ever heard) but the acoustic guitar caused me to remember this:

I like it. Songs that are uncluttered like that one show the true talent of the vocals. One of the reasons Jack Johnson, for example, has been so successful. Minimal instrumentation + good songwriting and a great voice.

That's a very nice song. Another great stripped-down guitar/voice combo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0025Z8r-Aw

This is a song i have loved for a time know and i will have to post back with the most beautiful as there are a lot i could consider so but have to think of what i would pick as most lol

to comment on the quote though his whiney nasaly voice does the song a lot of good in my opinion. I think this because of an Emo feel i guess but he is sad that people feel a certain way about death and that it saddens him and another part he is sad that he cant have in life, but also that she is the world to him so as she passes he will follow with nothing else to live for, not wanting her to go but will follow.... if any of that makes any sense lol

The most beautiful thing I ever heard was the lady's first "hello" and the way she says, "yes".

Looking forward to hearing, "I do".
