    The most beautiful thing I'ver heard up to now was:
    "Hey, you look good, really!"

    ---
    In music it should be either the orchestrated Secret of Mana Theme or the Piano Version of Final Fantasy VIII's The Oath

    Strictly musically speaking, I'd have to go with the cello.

    As far as any sound in the world, I haven't the faintest idea, but I'll bet it's really something to hear the voice of your first child for the first time.

    Ooooh...Sache8 You sound like a real romantic... Yeah that sounds hard to beat.
    Cello seems to be a favourite among instruments...

    Something from Tchaikovsky I guess. perhaps the pathetic symphony (no. 6) or some Edgar Faure...

    No, wait. I know : it's the soundtrack from final fantasy VII. Even in MIDI it brings tears to my eyes... But maybe the memories of the game help.

    Strictly sound speaking, I must admit the MiniMoog makes me feel all tingly each time. [face_blush]

    Difficult question, but one of the most beautiful things is the music at the end of the swordfight in ROTJ with the choir and all. That's truly marvelous.

    There is a part of a song that makes my neckhair raise and that's the intro-part och Richie Samboras "Gypsy woman". The keyboards and guitar creates a wonderful mood...

    I don't know the name of the song, but I htink Luciano Pavarotti sung it as the official 1990 World Cup English Theme - But then again, I'm not sure about that, because I have heard it heaps of times, but I never knew the name of it, or where it came from.

    The last time I heard it was about 3 days ago, when I was flipping through the cable channels, and there was a documentry about the 1990 World Cup, with Pavarotti singing the track. This is where I think they said it was Englands official World Cup song, because they said it was responsible for making Classical Music cool again.

    If anyone out there, especially the Brits on the Forum, can help out with this, I would be greatful - Even better if anyone can direct me to an Mp3.

    Hmm. . . Oh I know. After being shot, a medic told me I was going to be okay. That was pretty cool.

    I would have to say the most beautiful thing I have ever heard would have to be the fourth movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, the Ode to Joy. Never has anyone created such a moving and beautiful piece of music.

    hmmm... I really dig Dvorak's 9th (especially the 2nd movement) and Beethoven's 9th.

    When it comes to individual songs, then "Ghosts of a Future Lost" by Clint Mansell from the Requim for a Dream soundtrack.

    I agree about "The Burning Bush" from The Prince of Egypt. But I think it gets beat by "Silent Night" by Mannhiem Steamroller. That song really gives you a huge fealing of Nostolgia of christmases in the past. One other song that has never failed to give me chills is "Pines of the Apian Way" from Respigi's "Pines of Rome. Also the ending of "Firebird Suite 1919 Version" Is very good as well, but Silent Night has to top them all. Of musical instruments I would have to say any string instrument or the piano.

    PEARL HABOR'S SOUNDTRACK BY HANS ZIMMER!!! It's amazing... But it's only second to my best friend's voice... she has the most beautiful voice any living being could ever possess, a true gift from God. She wants to become an opera singer.

    Le Nozze DI Figaro - Overture KV 492

    Symphony No. 40 in G minor KV 550 3. Molto Allegro


    Those were the only two I could think of currently, but I appreciate them as two of the greatest pieces of music I have heard.

    Gosh, why does everyone say the cello? Everyone seems to adore that basso rumbling, but then, you get to the viola (the most sublime instrument on earth) and you have the c-string range, but a much more mellow, perfect tone.

    I agree with Strilo about Beethoven's 9th. I'm a fanatic about that piece, literally, but the moment that brings me to tears is during the vocal of "Freude schone gotterfunken," and "Seid umschlungen millionen mit der kusst der ganzen Welt" where the sopranos hit this seventeen-measure high D while the rest are doing the "Seid umschlungen words" to the "Freude schone gotterfunken" music and the orchestra is going nuts below. Every time, without fail, I start weeping.

    Other favorites:

    my mom doing Debussy's Claire de Lune.

    my dad doing O Holy Night

    the Wilberg arrangement of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

    the music when Darth Vader dies.

    The Pickett's Charge music from Gettysburg.

    The Faure Libera me Domine. Not the baritone solo, but after the dies irae when the strings quiet to almost a whisper, then the entire choir comes in in unison. It's haunting; it sounds like the souls of the lost and condemned, crying out to the Lord for redemption.

    My best friend laughing.
