I remember the Andrews Sisters and Vaughan Monroe. There was no rock and roll yet. I was born before Strauss wrote "Metamorphosen," one of my two or three favorite orchestral works.
 
well considering this entire question is opinion based, youll never get an answer
thread should be titled 'what do you think is the greatest song ever?'
 
Hi Fraggle,
"I remember the Andrews Sisters and Vaughan Monroe. There was no rock and roll yet. I was born before Strauss wrote "Metamorphosen," one of my two or three favorite orchestral works." Jeeze, I didn't think anyone was older than me, on this forum.

There weren't enough of us War Babies to constitute A Generation, so we had to decide whether to embrace the culture of the Depression Babies (Benny Goodman) or the Baby Boomers (Chuck Berry). I never exactly disliked the music of my first ten or twelve years (with notable exceptions like Sinatra) but still I found it an easy choice.
 
I don't know about individual songs, but my favourite albums are Miles Davis Kind of Blue 1950's, Hendrix Electric Ladyland 1960's, Weather Report Black Market 1970's, Pat Metheny (can't remenmber title) 1980's, and Future Sound of London Lifeforms 1990's.
 
ok...so random out of the blue for me i would say


1)how could an angel break my heqart by tony braxton
2)where'd u go by fort minor

yay! lol
 
A few songs from films spring to mind - Raindrops keep fallin' on my head, and New York, New York might be the best.

American Pie, from the same era, is perhaps the best rock song ever. (But not forgetting Welcome to Paradise, of course ;))

I'm haunted by Karen Matheson singing Ailein duinn in Rob Roy. Shivers down my spine.

I'm sure there's plenty of Broadway and opera candidates, but I've never found time to hear many of them, unfortunately. Perhaps They call the wind Maria, or Memory.

Also hymns. Ave Maria of course, and also Silent Night.
