Most Beautiful Melody?
So, what is the most beautiful melody you've ever heard? A melody that, even without lyrics, still bowls you over. I can think of a lot: Londonderry Air, The Long and Winding Road, Moonlight Serenade, The Boxer... But in the end, I have to give it to Allister MacGillivray's Away From the Roll of the Sea.
I hope this thread doesn't already exist. I couldn't find it, but that's not saying much with my searching skills.

Scarborough Fair. There is something magical on it. I love this instrumental version:
Scarborough Fair (Instrumental) - YouTube
As far as pop music goes then, well, maybe this one. I hate to be generic but really:
Beach Boys - God Only Knows (Lyrics) - YouTube
And a honourable mention goes to this, though I am not that much into classical but still, this melody is very pretty.
Bach, Air ("on the G string", string orchestra) - YouTube

There are a lot of melodies that can fit into this category. For me it's:
Bach - Prelude in C Major, from WTC Book I, BWV 846.
Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker Suite, VII. "Dance of the Reeds". FLUTES!!!!!
Beethoven - Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13 Mvt II. "Pathétique". Performed here by Daniel Barenboim.
