Music suggestions with beautiful lyrics....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have a hard time finding new music of any type really, so I am reaching out for suggestions. I am looking for music with beautiful lyrics, either the words themselves or the voice being beautiful. I know it's an obscure reference, but I love the song Gena sings in Porco Rosso for the talent of whoever sings that song; also anything like Bob Dylan or John Denver, because I think their lyrics are beautiful too. I hope someone can help me out! I don't know what to look for at all. redface.gif

Iron & Wine, Blackmore's Night, Lark & Spur, and Ray Lamontagne might fit your criteria. 

 

Sarah Brightman (her cover of Scarborough Fair is lovely) and Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam also have some beautiful songs.

 

Many Celtic artists are sublime too. I like to listen to the Celtic Pandora station to find songs with interesting music and lyrics.

good question. Amos Lee is pretty too. So is Madeleine Peyroux.

i'm sure you know it, but when i listen to joni mitchell's blue album (as well as any john denver) i find myself wanting to write down parts of the lyrics hang them all over our house.  :)

Try The Shins. Or Rufus and Martha Wainwright (I think that's how you spell there last name). I remember

Adele has a beautiful, haunting voice.
