View Full Version : Your favorite song- OF ALL TIME

What's your all-time favorite tune? The song you simply never get tired of, no matter how many times you hear it? The one (and only one) song you could take to a deserted island for the rest of your life? The one that, at the end of your life, people would hear and think of you? Feel free to insert another analogy here. You get the point.

Name the song and tell what it is about the tune that you like/love so much.

Mine? 'More Than a Feeling'- Boston

IMO, the tune has it ALL. Gorgeous harmonies, soaring 2 part guitar solos, crunching guitar chords, great dynamics, it's well-written, wistful, introspective lyrics sung by one of rock's greatest vocalists, it has a timeless quality. I NEVER get tired of it. Fell in love with it the first time I heard it, and listen to it still almost every day.

And yours?

Way too many good songs to pick one.
I love Zep SIngers Boston song for sure.
That song and group ranks right up there with my
top 10 for sure.

Waylon Jennings song, "Luchenback Texas" could be
my favorite of all time.

"Mexicola", Queens of the Stone Age

I actually prefer, on that album, "You Can't Quit Me Baby".

But my favorite QotSA is "Better Living Through Chemistry".

I'd also have to include "The National Anthem" by Radiohead.

Honestly, I just started building mine 2 months ago, haven't spent that much time on it.

I was just joking with you... ;)

I got mine Zune in December....by March, I'd become hooked.

I'd forgotten how much I love music, until the convenience and portability of my Zune made music available, almost always, at my finger-tips....with NO commercials---and all of what I hear, I have CHOSEN. It's awesome.

I'm convinced, for those who like music....it can be incredibly uplifting and motivating. I know it's helped my mood, and overall outlook...surprisingly so.

I just put it on "shuffle" and almost never have to pass on a song unless I'm in the mood for something in particular. I probably gonna buy a couple more "speaker" systems....altec lansing makes a great one for about $200--that's as good as many stereo systems, in terms of "sound"....that way, I can just pick up the Zune as I move around the house.

This is an impossible question for me. I have to choose between the 10,000 + song library, plus take into consideration the songs I don't have.

"Godhead's Lament" - Opeth
"Sheep" - Pink Floyd
"Comfortably Numb" - Pink Floyd

Way too many to list....I honestly wouldn't even know where to begin.

One song may be a favorite of mine for the shining remembrances it may spark each time I hear it, while another song may awaken my senses each time because it is simply an amazing piece of music.

If you're asking me for songs I "never tire of" that too is an enormous list.

Ask me what cache of music I must have with me while stranded on a deserted island, and I could provide a better response, but asking me to name ONE song is like asking me to tell you which one of my children is my favorite...it's not fair.

"Killing an Arab" The Cure
"Things" Thin White Rope
"Iceolate" Front Line Assembly
"Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?" Waylon

No doubt in my mind...

A Whiter Shade of Pale" is a song released in 1967 by the band Procol Harum.

With its haunting tonality and Bach flavouring (both provided by Hammond organist Matthew Fisher), vocals by Gary Brooker, and mysterious lyrics by Keith Reid, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" reached #1 on the British charts, was a hit in Europe, and reached #5 in the United States.

In the years since, it has become an enduring classic, and has earned extensive critical acclaim. Rolling Stone magazine placed "A Whiter Shade of Pale" as #57 of its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004. British TV station Channel 4 also placed the song at #19 in its chart of the 100 greatest number one singles.[1]

My personal all time favorite song is Suite Madame Blue by Styx. It can still bring a tear to my eye when I think of where this country has gone since that song came out. I guess people just didn't listen.

Time after time I sit and I wait for your call
I know I'm a fool but why can I say
Whatever the price I'll pay for you, Madame Blue
Once long ago, a word from your lips and the world turned around
But somehow you've changed, you're so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you, Madame Blue

Suite Madame Blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Suite Madame Blue, the future is all but past
Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more ..............heaven's door

America....America...America..America..
America....America...America..America..
America....America...America..America..

Red white and blue, gaze in your looking glass

So lift up your heart, make a new start
And lead us away from here

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We've known each other since we're nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I get along.
Goodbye, Papa, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, it's hard to die
when all the bird are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers ev'rywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfishs on the beach

cdcox

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We've known each other since we're nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I get along.
Goodbye, Papa, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, it's hard to die
when all the bird are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers ev'rywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfishs on the beach

No doubt in my mind...

A Whiter Shade of Pale" is a song released in 1967 by the band Procol Harum.

With its haunting tonality and Bach flavouring (both provided by Hammond organist Matthew Fisher), vocals by Gary Brooker, and mysterious lyrics by Keith Reid, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" reached #1 on the British charts, was a hit in Europe, and reached #5 in the United States.

In the years since, it has become an enduring classic, and has earned extensive critical acclaim. Rolling Stone magazine placed "A Whiter Shade of Pale" as #57 of its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004. British TV station Channel 4 also placed the song at #19 in its chart of the 100 greatest number one singles.[1]

If the question were favorite song to speed along winding backroads, that'd be my choice.

To the question at hand, the only thing that ALWAYS makes the list is;

Pictures at an Exhibition - Modest Moussorgsky

If that's cheating by chosing a 'suite' instead of a 'song,' I'd say 'Great Gate of Kiev.'

Pop/Modern music, I'd have to go with Malaguenia Salerosa.

Request: When you post a youtube video, it would be awesome if you'd also provide text indicating the song/artist if it's not too much trouble. Being on dialup, I rarely go through the agony of trying to play a youtube video, but I'd love to know what people's answers are.

P.S. If there is a way to figure out what the video is without accompanying text, I'd appreciate being educated on how to do it.

I don't care for music the way that most of you seem to.
I only listen to music in my car when Sports Talk radio is doing Nascar, Golf, or fishing shows.

But there are a couple of songs that I really enjoy when I hear them, though I'm not certain of their titles.

"You Don't Have To Call Me Darling"
