I heard this term once and like it. I also remember a quote, "Tom Waits makes beautiful music from ugly parts." Impossibly beautiful might be just a beautiful song/piece from someone you don't expect something like that from.

I'll start with a couple from Mr Waits. This one is from one of his first noisy albums:

When done well and as a true crescendo from pp to fff, this achingly beautiful piece taken from his String Quartet is tough to beat.

BARBER Adagio for Strings


And not a dry eye in the house

Where did all the music go? Links to youtube don't seem to be working with the new format.

Nothing sounded better on my 70's stereo. Turntable, Mac preamp, Phase III amp & Braun speakers (unless it was a cheap set of headphones after testing the available Ganja) - long version
