What is your favorite song of all time?

I'd go with Starlight by Muse.

Or Karma Police by Radiohead.

They're zetta awesome.
 

Smiddle

Power Star
The Spotnicks Theme.



This is not just something I just take from my head. It's a very catchy song, and it makes you feel... happy, I guess.

I'm not sure; I have a lot. Among them are:

Hotel California -- The Eagles
It's Been a While -- Staind
Re-Education Through Labor -- Rise Against
Stairway to Heaven -- Led Zeppelin

It's kinda hard to narrow it down to one song.

It's-a Me
This is hard.

I have too many favorites.

I'm going with Chop Suey! by System of a Down.

People who choose one thing to be the best thing ever are narrow minded, especially if the category is entertainment.
Why's that? One thing's always better than the other.

It's disgraceful, I know. I have, sadly, not taken the time to dig deep into the early 1900s music scene... Magnificentely popular songs were sorta few and far between back then, so it's hard to find some good songs to listen to from that era.

I think I can say that I agree.

My favourite song right now is "Fairytale" by Alexander Rybak. It's catchy and original and has gained popularity all over Europe.

Is there any reason why I shouldn't move this to General Entertainment?

As for my favorite song, either Wind Machine or Black Orpheus.

He's complaining that Bohemian Rhapsody isn't first.
Oh, I see.

Hey, he should just be glad the song is even in the top 10.

So, I'll ask again, is there any reason for me to not move this to General Entertainment?

I feel his pain. :(

Anyways, I'm not exactly sure. Either;

"Cold as Ice" - Foriegner
"Cover of the Rolling Stone" - Dr. Hook
"(Don't Fear) the Reaper" - Blue Oyster Cult
"Ballroom Blitz" - Sweet
"Teenager in Love" - Dion and the Belmonts (I think)
And "Layla" - Derek and the Dominos.

For me, Art of Noise - Il Pleure. It never fails to make me feel happy when I'm down. There's a way about it, its subtle breakbeat when it's mostly ambient, and the voice that accompanies the song, that just makes it perfect for me.
If you want ambience, you should listen to Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt". It's so beautiful...

Johnny Cash's version is even more ambient, in my opinion.
