Your input needed...

I wanted to start an open thread regarding the best songs of all time.  Please respond with your all time best song.  I am not putting any specific criteria on this, but here are a few hypothetical questions to consider incase one doesn't spring to mind right away:

If the music police (or the Thought Police from 1984 if you prefer, haha) just layed down an ordinance limiting the amount of songs to which you could listen, which one would you choose?

If you had the responsiblity of explaining music to extraterrestrials, what song would you play for them?

If your life was edited into a movie, what song would roll at the credits?

I think mine might be Imagine by John Lennon, but it is tough to decide. Brandenburg  Concerto? I don't know, haha.


  1. Imagine?! You song stealer! That is usually in my top 3. It's musical simplicity is in how it fits perfectly with how simplistic what he's saying actually is, if people only tried...or cared. I would probably give that my vote as well. Also if the emotional invocation of a piece counts it is right there.

    Classical? Vivaldi, either Fall Allegro or Spring Danzo Pastorale.

    And I want to throw a Tool song in there. Pushit or Eulogy. "There's no love in fear", a beautiful lyric.

  2. photograph, def leppard. hands down.

  3. Comes a Time Neil YOung
    Into the Mystic Van Morrison
    California Joni Mitchell
    Nutcracker Suite ....the Whole thing!

  4. Thanks for your comments. I like them all!
