BEST SONG EVER

Today it is between Dear Prudence (Beatles ) and A Dream Goes on Forever (Rundgren). Dear Prudence is usually the front runner though. No matter what and I don't know why.

Years ago I had the radio on all day while they were having some sort of contest. They would play two songs and listeners would call in and vote which was the better song. Whichever one won went on to the next round. I must have heard 'Ruby Tuesday' a hundred times that day since it kept winning!

I think eventually some Beatles tune beat it out...but I heard 'Ruby Tuesday' all day long and never got sick of it...so it must be the best song ever

It would really be hard for me to chose just one song since I like nearly all kinds of music...I guess I could say any song by Elvis or Conway Twitty would be my favorites...but there are a million more great songs out there! Now if you all were to say favorite singer...Elvis would win that one hands down with Conway coming in second!...LOL

Here's a few great songs:

Wish You Were Here- Pink Floyd
Free Bird [live ]- Lynyrd Skynyrd
In My Life- Beatles
God Only Knows- Beach Boys

Elvis should make this list, but I'll let his fans chime in with their favorite.

However, he didn't take himself too seriously- so this mangled version of one of his biggest hits might bring a smile to you too [sing it baby].

This is an older song I had never heard before until a few months ago. I guess it would depend on your taste in music as to whether you would like it. I like a wide variety of music from Classic Country, 50's Music, Easy Listening, Gospel and others.

The name of it is Good Bye My Love Good Bye and can be found at the following link. I love the background music, the words, and the emotion shown by the artist.

I have many favorites but I do like Bette Midler's version of "The Rose", Ruby and the Romantics have a special song for me when I was on the job, it was called "Our Day will come". Elvis is the King, but in a showdown Ray Charles is right there.

Remedy by Black Crowes
Elevation by U2

My kids would cringe if they heard a note of either song, it meant I was in house cleaning mood!

We went to see Matchbox Twenty and Train -- Train did a great version of Remedy

I tried to see Black Crowes --- they were opening for Tom Petty -- got there as the last ticket sold out -- so I stood in the parking lot and listened to them -- and discovered (through observation, not participation) that western Pennsylvania girls can indeed fall down with out spilling their beer.

to Fudypatootie and Alvandy!!

I was going to make a brief entry of one song, one group, but you beat me to it.

Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" was my choice for a gazillion reasons.........but I love the clever lyricism of PF's "Grantchester Meadows".....the guitar work is a joy, and I LOVE the clever ending........but not all copies of the song had that ending, not sure why??
Devotees will know what I am talking about

Yup to "Shine On, You Crazy Diamond", "Learning To Fly" and "Momentary Lapse Of Reason".

LedZepp is also a definite fave: "Kashmir", "Immigrant Song" and "Whole Lotta Love" still do it for me!!



On a totally different tangent, I love singing (that's what I call that noise I make) "Me and Bobby McGee" in the shower, or while driving.....no-one around to hear my laryngitic bullfrog efforts!!

Narrowing it down to just one or two would be impossible!
And I don't even think I'd argue that some of my very favorites were even terribly "great" in the grand scheme of things! Can you even define what exactly makes a song "great"? I know I can't. I just like what I like!
These are some of my all time favorite songs...the ones that, whenever I hear them, I just have to drop what I'm doing to TURN it UP!! (They're kind of all over the board, I admit!)
"Respect" (Aretha Franklin)
"Midnight Train to Georgia" (Gladys Knight/Pips)
"I Know a Little" (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
"Got the Life"
and
"Blind" (Korn)
"Rooster"
and
"Again" (Alice in Chains)
"Hey Baby"
and
"Free For All" (Ted Nugent)
"It's a Plain Shame"
and
"Show Me the Way" (Peter Frampton)
"Jerry Was a Race Car Driver" (Primus)
"Self Esteem" (Offspring)
"Life by the Drop"
and
"Let Me Love You Baby" (Stevie Ray Vaughan)
"Been Caught Stealin'" (Jane's Addiction)
"She's Crafty" (Beastie Boys)
"What You Give" (Tesla)
"I'm Just a Girl" (No Doubt)
"Master of Puppets"
"Don't Tread on Me"
"Fuel"
"2x4" (all by Metallica)
A million Eagles songs, but...to name a few:
"Already Gone"
"Life in the Fast Lane"
"James Dean"
"Heartache Tonight"
"Tequila Sunrise"
And there's even a George Jones song here...!...
"Still Doin' Time"
This is just a few off the top of my head!

I was going to ask about this before, but then...forgot, obviously. It may be too late, but I'll give it a whack.
What about best albums/CD's ever?
What's your pick for, say...the Best 5 Albums/CD's of All-Time?
Here are mine, I think:
Metallica-"Black"
Van Halen-"Van Halen" (First one)
AC/DC-"Highway to Hell"
Nickelback-"Silver Side Up" (You don't know how much it hurts me to admit this and how hard it is for me to accept that Nickelback is on my list!! But I listened to this CD on a non-stop loop for the first year I had it. Everything else by Nickelback since then has sucked!)
Garth Brooks-"Ropin' the Wind"
