The Most Beautiful Music Ever?
Okay. I'm listening to Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly right now. It's a long-time favorite of mine, and Cio-Cio-San's final aria is probably the closest that any bit of sound has ever gotten me to tears.
Is there any piece of music that moves you anything like that? I'm not really looking for things with personal associations a'la "When my hamster died, Octopus's Garden was on the radio so it makes me sad now when I hear it..." but for music that, on its own, tears emotion from your gut and causes it to spill forth. If something genuinely has such deep personal emotional connections, do please feel free to share though. Nor is sadness necessarily the only goal; if something fills you with bliss and I want to know about that, too.
This is why we can't have nice things.
