I think you'll find It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) by Bob Dylan is the greatest song ever. Closely followed by Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield.

Please, if we were to choose one Michael Jackson song, It's definitely Smooth Criminal.

Schubert's "Erlkoenig" is probably the most famous of his lieder (songs) and essentially kickstarted the Romantic tradition in music.  It is also incredibly good, but then, I love the German language, so I'm biased.

I love playing the classical music card ;)

P.S. jose -  Arvo Part is also THE MAN, and Te Deum is absolutely beautiful!

Quote from: Dark Flame
You know, it's definitaly massively high, but you know, I'm partial to Jungleland by Bruce Springsteen, and Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles (though the second one is in large part thanks to it's absolutely amazing placement after I Want You (She's So Heavy))


Here Comes the sun is NOT after She’s So Heavy, it’s on the other side. CD’s fucking kill albums like this. The album was meant to be arranged as two distinctive sides and if you listen to the LP you can tell; that’s the way it was arranged, along with almost every other good album from the era. That’s one of the biggest problems I have with CD’s, you don’t get the same listening experience because it’s all continuous. Of course, modern albums (mostly) are made for CD’s and don’t take this into account, and that’s just fine. The standard musical medium these days is CD’s and people take this into account, but when vinyl ruled true artists knew that people would have a pause between sides and arranged albums accordingly, making the listening more exciting and interactive.


...That is pedantry like none I have ever seen before.

The Song that won the Eurovision in 1963:

Grethe 6 Jørgen Ingemann's "Dansevise".


And NO! it is not a matter of national pride for me, I just find that song unbelievably beautiful. The whole song has this effortless grace to it that I'm just completely in love with. And those strings... mm.

Shesmovedon by Porcupine Tree? (Yes..that's the way the song title is spelled.)

 Still Day Beneath The Sun by Opeth?

 Sodom South Georgia by Iron and Wine?

 I could never decide on a best song ever,by the way.

I for one like the cover, but yeah, that is a truly stupid thing to say.

Does that also mean, that "Symbolic" and "Human" by Death are NOT timeless, amazing and awe-inspiring masterpieces, just because their covers are fugly as hell?

That's one of my least favorite Porcupine Tree songs. I'd totally second Trains, though.

And I actually really like the covers to Human and Symbolic. I agree that they are ugly, but I think it fits the music appropriately, and it varies interestingly from the standard metal album cover fare.

As much as I hate to be it, I am one of those wishy-washy people who can't decide on anything, especially rankings for things like "greatest song ever." So, after like 15 minutes of deliberation, I've picked 5 songs that deserve to be on a top-something countdown, because I hate rankings anyway.  In no particular order:

Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (probably #1 anyway)
Stevie Wonder - Superstition
ACDC - Thunderstruck (NO ARGUMENTS IT'S AWESOME)

because I'm weird like that,
Daler Mendhi - Tunak Tunak Tun

and because I'm not afraid to stand up for what I believe (and because everybody else hates it),
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama and Freebird, I couldn't decide which


I know, I'm awesome.
