    Best Song Ever thread

    I was curious as to what you would say is the best song ever, no matter the genre.

    I would have to say IMO the best song is "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"-Pink Floyd
    That song is simply amazing. Curious to see yours.

    Re: Best Song Ever thread

    I listen to way too much music to pick one favorite. Even if you broke down by category I'd have a tough time. So for recent listing of song that I keep repeating:


    NSFW: language
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dfe7hVfyZTU&ob=av3e]YouTube - Five Finger Death Punch - The Way Of The Fist[/ame]

    and
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_VsvZmIWxY]YouTube - Five Finger Death Punch- Bad Company[/ame]

    Been on a 5fdp kick as of late

    Good choice. I'm not a big Springsteen fan but his song writing and lyrics are so strong and evocative that he has to be respected as a master of American music.

    Impossible to pick one. If I had to, it's this one:
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhVLiHPUOIM]YouTube - Wild Horses - The Rolling Stones 1995[/ame]

    Other greats:
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lWJXDG2i0A&ob=av3e]YouTube - Tom Petty - Free Fallin'[/ame]

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkumhBVPGdg]YouTube - The Velvet Underground - Sweet Jane[/ame]

    I could do this for hours.

    Solid picks - I would have put Simple Man over Free Bird but acknowledge I'll be in the minority for that oen

    I feel the same way! Exactly...and the song above would come up for sure in my "best song ever" list at some point...pretty early actually!

    Simple Man is a great song. I just feel that Free Bird is the definition of "epic".

    Re: Best Song Ever thread

    I'm intentionally trying to avoid some of the more obscure stuff I listen to here. These aren't necessarily my personal favorite songs (although I love them all dearly), as much as I think they are songs that embody some kind of universal concept of "greatness".

    If that makes any sense.
