Your Favorite Song Ever?

For me it has to be More Then A Feeling by Boston. There is something about this song, that every time I hear it, it's almost like the first time I ever heard it.

 

The intro is amazing, the solo is EPIC and definitely fits with the song. Then there is the vocals.

Easy one. Sometimes It Snows In April by Prince

 

 

Nice choice! I think you've just inspired me to listen to "Parade" today.

 

I don't think there is any way I could narrow it down to one single favorite song. And I think I'd have to separate between "favorite song" and "favorite recording".

 

My favorite song might be "The Way You Look Tonight", which I think is just the perfect blend of chords, melody and lyrics, has been recorded a thousand times, I'm not sure I've ever heard a bad version and I never tire of hearing it.

 

My favorite record would be something like Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" or "Bohemian Rhapsody"---something where the artists just totally went for over-the-top and nailed it. Those are two recordings that I've heard 1,000 times and never cease to be amazed when listening to the songwriting, performances and production.

Without You - Pete Ham and Tom Evans of Badfinger wrote, Nilsson performed.

 

 

One song? No way!!! But I could get on board with "Without You". Great tune.

I would also give honorable mention to "I'll Be There" (I favor Mariah's version but M.J.'s is great too).

Smokey Robinson - "OOH BABY BABY"

Iron Butterfly - Inna-gadda-da-vida

Skynrd - "Swamp Music" & "You Got That Right" & "I Ain't The One"

 

 

Orleans - "Still The One" groove, vocals, great solo....it's got everything IMO.

 

EDIT: Don't even get me started on Beatles!!! Medley on side two of Abbey Road...some of the greatest

I have so many favorite songs I grew up with and influenced me over the years but none were as powerful as this song to me. I had long been a Queen fan and remember hearing this song and thinking it was pretty good. This was of course six months before he died, which afterward completely changed the meaning and impact for me. What you hear on the track is a man who know's he's dying and can't tell a soul around him. Having gone through cancer myself I know exactly what it's like to put a smile on your face when you feel like your dying on the inside. Even today I hear it and it send chills up my arm.
