This one song.
I had forgotten how it affected me, whenever I heard it.
It was on the radio the other day. It still raises the hair on the back of my neck.
It's amazing, and it really captures a feeling.
So play it, read the lyrics (included).
I think it still applies, and applies even more here..On ATS.

I think it's S n G's best. Tell me what YOU think..
"The Sounds of Silence"

There are so many, but the most hauntingly beautiful song in my opinion is

Summer Highland Falls by Billy Joel

Considering I am a Pink Floyd whore, I would have to narrow it down to three songs.


Echoes

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Dogs


Echoes is a very trippy song, and I listened to it for the first time. Meddle a really great album.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond is another awesome song, and encorporates haunting blues notes, with the synthesizer tones that Pink Floyd is famous for.

The lyrics alone in Dogs are very haunting, and the music in it is fairly upbeat, and does a sudden changeover to a pseudo-psychadelic.


Most of Pink Floyd's music is very haunting, and the entire album The Wall is very haunting and sad.

But these three songs stayed with me most of the time.

Duckster,
Those are both really great ones.
The intro to Gimme Shelter, really sets the tone.

This is turning into a goosebump fest.
