With titles:

For me, it's Broken by Lifehouse.

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 Beautiful Day by 3 Colours Red.

IMHO, Howard Shore's score to the LOTR Trilogy is a masterpiece and Evenstar scores the bullseye for "haunting" and "beautiful"

Also, on a seasonal note, this version of Silent Night by Sinead is captivating

Can't get to YouTube at work, but if no-one has mentioned "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" by Sandy Denny/Fairport Convention then you really need to check it out.

  • Dallas Green (City and Colour) - Love don't live here anymore.

  • Dallas Green (City and Colour) - What makes a man.

Pretty much anything sung by Dallas Green is amazing imo.

  • Happiness by the kilowatt (COVER) - Unknown man.
Its only an amateur cover, but that revurb mixed with his voice is brilliant, especially 1:29, the "wake up" is top top stuff.

  • Mumford and Sons- (COVER) - The White Blank Page - By katem3. And yes, that is her bathroom.
