  • All Time Favorite Song

    OK, so we have a few fun time waster threads going on. I'm enjoying them. Let's see how many will respond here, see how many individuals will keep this going with their single ALL TIME favorite song.

    So, what I want to know is: What is your ALL TIME Favorite Song, and WHY?


    The Load Out/Stay by Jackson Browne
    B/C it was almost prophetic of my life. Listening to it as a young child I said "I want to be a roadie" having no idea what a "roadie" was. fast forward 20 some odd years later and I realized the I was living that dream as I was driving home from a "load out" watching the "load-in sun" come up, knowing another crew was setting up the next show in another town....WHOA, I have made it. I am living out my dream! What a great tribute song for all of us "techies" or "roadies" and an inspiration.

    Sooo....who's next? What's your ALL TIME favorite song? Why? How has it affected you? Please share....

    Favorite Song I guess, is "Country Roads" because no matter how old I was, or where I was, it always manages to make me homesick. Expecially the bluegrass version. *le sigh*

      Orpheus by David Sylvian.
      I cried when I first heard it - it sounds like angels singing.

          Under The Bridge by RHCP. Good song. Good video.
          I was young when I first heard it, and still it makes me cry.

          "And I don't ever wanna feel
          like I did that day.
          Take me to the place I love.
          Take me all the way"

          Another good song is Changes by 3 Doors Down. Makes me cry every single time for some dumb reason.

            Lateralus by Tool. The whole album is amazing but that song in particular really resonates with me. The intense, hypnotically absorbing music with Maynard's breathtakingly tender and powerful voice and personal yet transcendental lyrics combine to form the most powerfully moving music that has ever engaged my ears and mind and blessed and uplifted my spirit.

            "I embrace my desire to
            feel the rhythm, to feel connected
            enough to step aside and weep like a widow
            to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
            to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
            to swing on the spiral
            of our divinity and still be a human."

            Wow, even thinking about it takes me to another place, a primal, sacred place saturated with meaning and magic. Confronting death and struggle while affirming life and love, beautiful.

                      "Blasphemous Rumours"-Depeche Mode

                      Dark, moody, poetic, and wrangled the catholic church to no end in the mid 80's

                          Copperhead Road- Steve Earle Just a really good song

                            Know what? I think Copperhead Road is mine too.

                            Or maybe Wanted Dead or Alive... but don't tell ANYONE I listen to Bon Jovi!

                              x2, but if I had to narrow it down...

                              "Enough" by Chris Tomlin - This song is essentially a prayer. Life is hard, period. If all I lived for was myself & all I did was harbor on my life, I'd be miserable. Call this a cliche Christian statement, but I've got hope in something much greater than the little glimpses of life that I see on a daily basis. The words to this song just hit home in ways that I can't fully put into words here.

                              - or -

                              "Out of the Woods" by Nickel Creek - The CD this song is on probably saw the greatest rotation on the days that I just had to hop in the van & get out of town, away from everything back in my post-injury college days... simply on drives to clear my head... out into the country in the Shenandoah Valley or up to the Blue Ridge Mountains. This song just has a calming effect on me.
