unanswerable question, but for me this is up there



or is this more 'harmony' than 'melody'?

edit, few more...

stevie wonder - golden lady
beach boys - wonderful
prefab sprout - cruel
joni mitchell - chelsea morning
steely dan - doctor wu

too many...

Here, there, and everywhere by the Beatles comes to mind.

I'll pick one from Art music, Rock, and Popular music.

Maurice Ravel (Impressionist music) Pavane pour une infante défunte


Steve Hackett (Prog Rock/Classical Guitar) Horizons


Henry Mancini (Movie Scores) Theme From a Summer's Place

That's a nice melody by Ravel, Neapolitan!

I'd pick a lot of instrumental compositions by Beethoven and Bach and Telemann because they are highly melodious. Those melodies are the basics for pieces of all the following composers.
When it comes to vocal main-melodies I would say usually the aria of any opera has to be really beautiful. You won't understand a word of the lyrics of the song, but the melody will be stuck in your head.
The modern genres often sound pretty equally seen from their main melody. What I like about songs is the development or small elements in music, feeling or a concept etc.
It's hard to name a single song as there are lots of masterpieces, in general!

I was actually thinking of this one myself. Gorgeous.

Aye, this happened to pop into my head at the first instance. This along with Dvorak's Humoresque No. 7, probably owing to have them learnt on the piano at a young age.

I love that song. I did a full concert band arrangement of it for my final term project in university.

Nice! Was that a music theory project or something? You have a music degree?
