You have to watch the video, and you have to try and work out the meaning behind it. Totally beautiful song.

My runner-up would be this one:

That's not a song, as there is no singing.

If we are going for music tracks, I nominate these...

Ott - The Queen of All Everything
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnhuZ_p-dbQ

Brian Eno - An Ending (Ascent)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMXaE9NtQgg&fea...

John Murphy - Sunshine (Adagio in D Minor)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQXVzg2PiZw

However, for songs, I nominate these...

Lamb - Gorecki
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PILJRHjUVEw

DJ Sammy - Heaven (Candlelight Mix)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CLCUoUUBuk&fea...

I'm not ashamed to say the last one gets me a little choked, but probably down to a Newgrounds toon that used it...

I'm kicking myself for not including that.

Her High B sends a shiver straight down my spine everytime.

Just his way, I think. Though he considers himself 'transgender', which goes some way to explaining the feminine vocals I suppose.
