The best song ever
« Reply #100 on: 12 Jun 2006, 12:02 »

Maybe, uhh...

Andy-Frank Zappa (It could also be a variety of other things.)
Moonlight On Vermont/My Human Gets Me Blues-Captain Beefheart
So Damn, So Down, And So Blue-Xhol Caravan
21st Century Schizoid Man-King Crimson
The Star Spangled Banner

Yeah.

If we're picking a Zappa song, it is Peaches En Regalia or Stink-Foot.

If we're picking a Beefheart song, it's definitely either Moonlight on Vermont, Dachau Blues or Making Love to a Vampire with a Monkey on My Knee.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

Other than "Like A Rolling Stone" I'd have to nominate the "Stop Making Sense" version of "Life During Wartime" by The Talking Heads. It's fan-fucking-tastic.

Sunshine of your Love - Cream

Sister -motherfucking- Ray- VU
  Even better, but some people can't take any abrasion...

Like the topic says, ?best song not favorite song, I agree, Hallowed be thy Name is my favorite Maiden song, ?

I choose "The Evil Tha Men do" because it is basically a Microcosm of everything Maiden is:
,
-it's got the intro, which is amazingly atmospheric, ?best they've done since "Children of the Damned"
-it's got the galloping bass of Steve Harris,
-The twin leads of Murray and Smith, how can you not love that solo... Someone once mentioned on a forum I used to read, "Judas Priest introduced the world to twin guitars and Maiden perfected it", I have to agree.
-Then there's ?lyrics which are ?based on a line from ?"Julius Caesaer" by William Shakespeare, delivered in that way only Bruce can do.

The intro and the opening line:
"Love is a razor and I walked the line on that silver blade" ?the imagery that conjures up is astounding.

Anyway Im degenerating into fanboy mode now so I'll stop.

I reckon the best song ever is 'Let it be', by the beatles not because it's my favorite or anything, but because I've yet to find a human being who does not like it.
But you know, since it's a fact and all, I guess 'Wouldn't it be nice' is he best. I haven't heard it so I can't pass judgement. That's probably why I disagree.

Boring Macca singing, bad lyric... dosen't do it for me.

Best song ever is Thunder Road. Long thing i wrote about why: http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=1530844

Runners up include Fairytale of New York (The Pogues), Palmcorder Yanja (The Mountain Goats) and Your LIttle Hoodrat Friend (The Hold Steady)

or, yeah, God Only Knows wins.  i can accept that

And to stay on some semblance of a topic (typng is hard when drunk) - also want to put
Thom Yorke - Harrowdown Hill
as a nomination for awesome song, as he seems to make everything sound so much more important than it actually is.

Time for me to completely fuck up any sort of rhythm this forum may have had going for it.  Recently my brother stumbled upon a Baltimore club song entitled "Elmo Song."  Essetially, it is a fake Sesame Street quote, set to a club beat and repeated.  FUCKING AMAZING. It's seriously been stuck in my head for like 3 weeks now, and I can't get it out, not matter how hard I try.  It's just that catchy.

*cough*

And, I guess I need a more.... contemporary song, yes?  Then I shall go for Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughan, because Stevie Ray Vaughan is the bee's knees.  Oh, look at that, I can hear Stevie spinning in his grave from here.
