@deadeyemccoy: Yay, Clutch! Awesome.
I could never manage to pick a favorite song, no matter how much thought I gave to it. There are some songs that I particularly like and I could listen to on repeat and not get tired of. I suppose that's close enough.
I never think about this sort of thing. I'll ask my ipod.
My ipod says my most played song is Rabbit Heart by Florence and The Machine. That's a pretty good song. After that it's Heal from the Ico soundtrack. That's a good one too. I wouldn't call them my favorites though.
I'm gonna cop out and throw a few out here, all very different.
This might be my favorite single piece of music. So much hope, beauty. I could listen to this song many times a day for the rest of my life.
I'm moved nearly every time I hear this song. Aside from the personal attachment I feel to the sentiment and the words, the way this piece moves imbues my cold heart with white, hot life.
For the metal side of me (a big side), it was between this and about a half dozen Machine Head songs (Halo, their Hallowed Be Thy Name cover, Clenching the Fists of Dissent, Imperium, The Burning Red, Darkness Within, Be Still and Know, others). But this is probably the most complete and all-encompassing song that I'm aware of.
For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica
(Runner-up) Notorious Thugs by Biggie and Bone Thugs
Great choices. I bounce back and forth between For Whom the Bell Tolls and Fade to Black as my favorite song off Ride the Lightning (more often lean toward Fade to Black, likely my favorite Metallica song too).
Gold Soundz - Pavement
Edit- No wait I take that back, Jesus and Tequila, er I mean... ummm Sgt Baker...
Fuck this question.
Those are some great songs. My personal favorite is This Is How We Walk on the Moon by Arthur Russell.
Is it weird to say I don't have favorite songs, but just favorite albums with songs I prefer off of them?
Like for sure these:
Abbey Road by the Beatles, with The End being my favorite off of it.
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) by the Wu-Tang Clan, favorite cut being Bring da Ruckus
Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys, favorite song being Car Thief
Also, I'm currently pretty in love with Chance the Rapper's Acid Rap mixtape
Favourite song of all time is currently a tie between Hotel California (lol, I know) - The original as well as the acoustic 'Hell Freezes Over' version, and Dream Theater's Learning To Live.
Favourite song right now?
I've recently gotten into The Smiths, thanks to the boyfriend, who comes from Manchester. So of course he would love The Smiths.
I don't think I could narrow it down to just one...
Some favorites though -
- Where the Streets Have No Name - U2
- Save Tonight - Eagle Eye Cherry
- Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
- You Get What You Give - New Radicals
- Whoomp There It Is! - Tag Team
I'm not saying these are necessarily good songs in an artistic way, but I "jam" out to them every time I hear them.
Man, this is hard. After thinking a bit, I really can't say anything bad about Mr. Heavenly. The song just flows in such an interesting way and has a great chorus.
Another related song is Piranhas Club by Man Man. It's just groovy, and the lyrics and really contrasted against the surf-guitar and poppy sounds.
