That's a tough one!! I have no idea what my favorite song of all time is, so I'll just pick one I like fairly well:

Not easy to answer;
I have tons of songs on my MP3 players.
And a whole lot of vinyl records ; cassettes; even a few 8 tracks and compact discs all over my house. i did want to be a deejay once.

But I will always listen to DAWN by the Four Seasons any time it comes on the radio too. I wish I had the rare stereo version.

Brian Kennedy's version of "She moves through the fair". His voice is just haunting in this song. Its an old traditonal Irish ballad dating back to the mid 1920's and many artists have recorded it but Brian's version is the best imho

Depends on the situation. Driving with the windows down, it's "Born to be Wild." Perfect driving or biking song for the open road.

From a musical: Several from "Little Shop of Horrors" or "Le Mis."

Song I'm saving for my funeral: "Beulah Land" and "Go Rest High (on that Mountain)"

Only song I can (almost) sing along with: "Daddy Sang Bass.:

heard it through the grapevine; Marvin Gaye.

I was surprised when I saw the show Love in Las Vegas, the Beatles tribute, and listening to "I want to hold your hand" with the crowd noise...amazing -- very emotional.

As far as modern songs go, this one is a little old now, but I like the words and message of the song and its probably my favorite of the last few years. It has a few anti-corporate messages in the video, but oh well, lol. The person who posted the "meaning" of the song on youtube I think has got it about right on:

"i think the song is about the idea that we have so much incredible´╗┐ potential as human beings to be destructive or to be creative, and we can both take diffrent paths hence the corporate and dove sign.".

I'll keep posting on this thread all day if you let me Mcmahon!! I love music.

Barry, you're exactly right about "Love" in Las Vegas. For a Beatles fan, that show is like a religious experience. For everyone else, it's still tremendous. (You get to see Cirque du Soleil along with the deal!) If you have any excuse to be in Las Vegas (and there are lots of excuses out there), don't miss that show!

Difficult one, as many songs come to mind. A special one however, is "I Want To Break Free" by Queen. I think it expresses exactly how you feel when you fall in love with someone new, and want to move on from an existing unhappy relationship. (I am speaking from experience...).

How on earth do you decide? There are so many.... All with piano backrounds (thanks Elton and all the other pianomen) and loooonnng, and rock, but between going to the Hotel California and down the Yellow Brick Road how do you decide? And the sound of Dylan's voice from the past still brings a smile as he introduces the Mighty Quinn.
Oh, ok, I'll admit it. "Who let the dogs out" Baha Men.
Well, you did ask.

This is a toughie for me as I have favorite songs by alot of different artists. It depends on the music genre...but I do like all of Elvis' songs...does that narrow it down a bit?

This song from A League of Their Own always gets me. Great song, great movie.

On a more current basis,oddly enough, I love The Black Eyed Peas. Love this new song...

My daughter is leaving on a driving vacation, and is currently loading her iPod. So I'm listening to the family go through this same discussion as they choose the songs. Sounds like it will be heavy on Broadway musical soundtracks.

I came across this song about a year ago and really love the words and the music. I had never heard of the singer, Demis Roussos until then.

Goodbye My Love, Goodbye by Demis Roussos

The singer is Greek Egyptian and you can read about him and his music at:

Thanks for all your replys but I am only 12, so I want to hear songs from this decade!

Mickeym  (Level: 88.2 - Posts: 1803)
Sat, 29th May '10 3:56 PM

That's easy, there were no great songs from this decade!
Oh, ok, "It's A Beautiful Life" by Fisher the Band i.e. the toyota wheel commercial.

Mcmahon, I have sad news for you--the rest of are generally old geezers who can't remember anything that happened in the last ten years!

M48ortal  (Level: 261.6 - Posts: 3826)
Sat, 29th May '10 4:30 PM

Speak for yourself, Dave. Some of us geezers can remember, we just choose to remember selectively.

McMahon, I would agree that there hasn't been a lot of popular music released in the past decade that will be future "classics," but the country music field has produced the majority of the big hits. Alan Jackson started the "nothin's" off with two huge songs, "Where I Come From" and "Where were You When the World Stopped Turning?" My favorite from the past year is a lot more light-hearted - Josh Turner's "Why Don't We Just Dance."

Music downloads and piracy have just about killed the commercial music industry as we know it.

What kind of music you like McMahon? Rock? Rap? I could probably put up some music you might not have heard........

Daveguth  (Level: 266.5 - Posts: 1636)
Sat, 29th May '10 4:45 PM

You're right, Mike! I've selectively forgotten to listen to any sort of current music for at least ten years.

Let me add one of my all time favorite country songs -- maybe cross-over but still. Just heard it again in Starbuclks today and marveled at her voice....

Crazy by Patsy Cline

That's a tough question because I love music and there are hundreds of songs and artists whose music I truly enjoy.

For me it depends on the mood I'm in. I also believe that isn't so much the song, but rather the person or place or time that comes to mind when I hear the song.

What a gift God has given us in music!

I echo the last sentiment. As a classically-inclined person, lately, I've been playing Beethoven's Opus 110 piano sonata. Emotionally rich and difficult. Well worth the effort.

I also get a kick out of Billy Joel's Piano Man and Heaven Can Wait (from Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell).

Ok Ok,don't worry lets go back to "whats your favourites ong of all time?" But just to tell you,you are missing out on the music from 2009-2010!

You are probably right, we are! The best way to judge the age of codgers is by the lady's hairstyle and their favorite music -- tends to stick at age 16. But Napster and other online services bring all ages right to your computer, what a joy. What songs/groups do you recommend?

"Free Bird"--that was my high school class song of 1978. Others would be "Lady" by Styx and "Lay It on the Line."

Aarrggh who said " Free Bird"?

My personal favorite is: Pachelbel Canon in D Major

What do you think of: August's Rhapsody? I like that one, also.

Edgycater  (Level: 194.1 - Posts: 27)
Mon, 31st May '10 8:07 AM

Are you kidding? One song? Wow, narrowing down to a top 100 would be difficult. "Free Bird" was the first to pop into my head, but that was quickly followed by the following: "Brandy" by Looking Glass, "Gonna Fly Now" by Maynard Ferguson (but the Bill Conti version is right there too) and "Fox on the Run" by the Country Gentlemen. It being Memorial Day, I've had "More Than A Name on the Wall" by the Statler Brothers and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Some Gave All" on my mind too.

Mcmahon  (Level: 39.6 - Posts: 224)
Mon, 31st May '10 9:20 AM

Sorry I never heard of August's Rhapsody! am more a modern music man! A few of you asked what music would you suggest to us? Well, Akon,Alicia Keys,Ne-yo and the The Script and many more!

Mickeym  (Level: 88.2 - Posts: 1803)
Mon, 31st May '10 10:20 PM

Thanks for the recs, but I'm a bit confused. What would you call those musically? As a child of the 60's (think rock and acid rock and folk and such) they sound sort of easy listening to me. Do you dance to them?

BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER, without a doubt. I first heard this in a hotel bar in Gander, Canada, and it was played continually on the duke box. I still get a shiver every time I hear it.

I can't think of one particular favorite song since I am a music lover and love it all...but for 2009-2010 music, I really like Lady Gaga right now and I think she is great!

Oh La La !!


Barnierubble  (Level: 93.9 - Posts: 637)
Tue, 1st Jun '10 11:41 AM

Whiter Shade of Pale is a close second.

Nanpaulhus  (Level: 144.4 - Posts: 351)
Tue, 1st Jun '10 12:26 PM

Ach! Okay, well until I saw "Bridge Over Troubled Water" on the list I knew my answer... Well, for today - as I"m in my Bob Dylan revival mode - it's Forever Young. Can't get that song outta my head. But, I would truly have to pick one for every genre were I to be true to myself!

As for gospel, it's "The Blood Will Never Lose It's Power" ... a jazzy kind of tune that I sing at church.

Garrybl  (Level: 291.5 - Posts: 6769)
Tue, 1st Jun '10 2:12 PM

Not to sound a sour note...but are there any choices selected by someone as their favorite song that would rank on people's 'worst ever' list?

Not that there are any on MY list that I've seen...but you never know!

Aquamar  (Level: 185.7 - Posts: 925)

One favorite song is impossible for me because I have so many but right now Broken by Lifehouse would have to be it. If you get a chance check out my daughter's friend Krista Nicole on Youtube. She is young but I think she sings this song fairly well for her age.

I love the Lady Gaga song Bad Romance but never watched the video. YIKES!!! She certainly brings an interesting element to the words of this song doesn't she? I'm not too crazy about Allessandro, the song currently getting airtime.

Barry asked about songs we hate. I will change stations on MacArthur Park every time.

These two cartoons semi-relate to this discussion:

Michael, "I don't think that I can take it, cause...."
you said that! I loved MacArthur Park until it was the last song in aerobics, and we had to hear melting in the rain while sweating!
Actually, sorry Barry, "Crazy" might make my hate list.
