  • What's the ONE SONG in the history of music....that you wish YOU would have written

    I am looking for just one answer per member:

    What is the ONE song in the history of recorded music that you wish you would have written?

    That one song where you would die a happy man if every liner note of this one song said "WORDS AND MUSIC BY: (Your Name)

    we will rock you/we are the champions (it's one song dammit!)

    If this were family feud I bet survey would say that's #1
    "Can somebody give me a hand with all this talent?"

      This is the first one that sprung to mind, probably because I heard it on the radio recently but there are several for me. "Break on Through" (Doors), "Time of the Season" (Zombies) and "Red House" (Hendrix) are a few others high on my list.

          I don't think the lyrics are that graceful for those though, there must be something better. Although, At least it's not "she was a fast machine..."

          oh god, nice to see rock around the clock is big but look what else is there... Tragic death can bring in a lot of money I guess.

                        Good choice, but I'd go to my grave satisfied if I wrote Thunder Road, off of Born to Run.

                          My own songs tend to be pretty grim and cynical. But I'd ****************ing kill to write something this uplifting:
