Reddit’s 100 Most Beautiful Songs

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”Plato

If you’ve been living in a cave, here’s a musical update. Reddit’s 100 Most Beautiful Songs has everyone talking. So many people voted and Reddit posted the 100 most popular. What an eclectic list; classical to pop. Unfortunately many genre’s, like jazz, are missing. But maybe the missing genre’s are more about who reads Reddit and who doesn’t.


A snapshot of the culture in 2012, many of these songs are familiar to me because I’ve played them in Wind Concert bands. Can you make it through the list. Enjoy.
