Favourite Song of All-Time?

although i like them immensly i dont think that a song by the smiths is the best song of all time
We're not looking for the best song, just the one that is your favorite. I'm a musician so my tastes tend to lean more toward technical analysis and less toward emotional impact than the average person, yet I still love songs like "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac and "Highway to Hell" by AC/DC.

Hey, I guess I missed yesterday so I owe you two. Those are it.

I think there's another thread for best song.
 
Great choices Fraggle Rocker. I love AC/DC and Fleetwood Mac, though Tusk is one of my all-time favorites by FM.

For me, today: "Orinoco Flow" by Enya and Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U," a song written by Prince.
 
hard choice, my top ten are:

1.Hello - Oasis
2.This Charming Man - The Smiths
3.After That - Ben Folds
4.Amaeture Hour - Sparks
5.You Have Killed Me - Morrisey
6.36 Degrees - Placebo
7.Looking After No.1 - The Boomtown Rats
8.Like Clockwork - The Boomtown Rats
9.Walk of Life - Dire Straights
10.Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen
 
And you were going so well there until you got to 9 and 10.

Song for Today: Erm... Built to Spill - Sidewalk.
 
well i sure am pleased to see that someone else likes the boomtown rats!

i am going to say Close to the edge by Yes

a 19 minute song containing a magnificent guitar solo. you can't get much more perfect than that

I agree: it could only be improved on by cutting the last 16 minutes and have someone ranting about "flatulent hippies" over the top.
 
I see I'm not the only one with different favorites on different days.

For today, "Suffragette City" by David Bowie. Have to pick him out early, it was he who brought Mrs. Fraggle and me together. In the mid-1970s, when everyone over thirty was compulsively disowning rock and roll ("Oh it's okay for dancing but we much prefer jazz"), we discovered that we both loved Ziggy Stardust.

BTW, I agree with many of you on many of your picks, from "Close to the Edge" to "Hotel California."
 
i encourage evryone to listen to fuck the system by system of a down, its not for everyone but its an experience to say the least
 
Most notable song of all times: Moskva; Mnogotochie. Now we ought to know this song by heart...a true gem of our lifetime...and perhaps the human civilization. The golden fish finally caught amongst the many other fish.
