    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Most beautiful thing I've ever heard!

    Just my humble opinion. Whats your opinion of it?

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    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:
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    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 one spells beautiful to me:

    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
    ― Muhammad Ali

    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

    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    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".
