Not sure if this is already a thread, and I kind of forgot how to search for topics, weird. Anyway, I was reading through the Top 3 games thread and a song came on and I realised it probably is my favourite song ever. So, I ask the community, what is yours? I was going to ask for a top 3, but I feel as that would be too hard to put in order and the likes, I know I couldn't.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica

#3 Posted by Scooper (7920 posts) -

Central - John Frusciante (Ex Red Hot Chili Pepper Guitarist)

#4 Posted by RPGee (763 posts) -

My Sharona - The Knack

I can't quite tell if it's an ironic favourite or not, but it always makes me feel better.

Motion Picture Soundtrack by Radiohead.

Selkies (The Endless Obssession) - Between the Buried and Me

(Maybe not of all time but it's one of the first that comes to mind)

Muse - Plug In Baby 
For some reason that song always makes me happy. 

#9 Posted by Baillie (4537 posts) -

@ZeForgotten: MY PLUG IN BAILLIE. That's what I always sing. So does Matt.

Oh man. This is hard. It'll probably be something different each day. But, today, the one that came to mind was this:

It has a really cool, relax sound and mixes electronic music and rock really well.

According to last.fm, it's Life's A Bitch by Nas, which I think is pretty accurate, too difficult to say for sure though.

But this is probably a close second place.

My Bloody Valentine-Only Shallow.

#13 Posted by MightyDuck (1550 posts) -

Where the Streets Have No Name - U2

#14 Posted by Timing (632 posts) -

For the longest time I used to answer this with Right in Two by Tool, but I think Fair To Midland's The Greener Grass may have overtaken it.

Carry On My Wayward Son - Kansas.

#16 Posted by Atlas (2546 posts) -

"Music Box" by Thrice.

First runners-up are "Pyramid Song" by Radiohead, "Living Together" by Circa Survive, "Staralfur" by Sigur Ros, and "Invalid Litter Dept." by At the Drive-In.

@Baillie: No he doesn't why would he even sing something tha... 
I mean, yeah you're right. Now that I think about it I read a magazine once where Matt totally dropped your name in an interview saying that "the song is made for this one person"  
The Magazine doesn't exist anymore though, so just take my word for it.

I think its got to be Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. I never ever get tired of hearing that song.

Hard to say since it changes around among a select few.

Right now, Ravel's "Boléro".

This, for ever.

Superhero of The Computer Rage - In Flames. Warning, it's heavy metal.

#28 Posted by Strongbadman47 (156 posts) -

No brainer.

#29 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5827 posts) -

It's tough to pick between all of the great songs on Loveless, but if I had to I'd go with When You Sleep.

#30 Posted by TheIronYuppie (122 posts) -

Enter Sandman by Metallica


November Rain by Guns N' Roses

#31 Posted by Chop (1999 posts) -

Nujabes - Horizon

My heart still dives into my stomach when I hear this. It's the most calming thing I've ever heard.

[edit] Actually, I'd choose this song instead.

#43 Posted by Seppli (11233 posts) -

Eins Zwo - Schon Unterwegs

...to go against the grain, something German.

#44 Posted by ThePickle (4207 posts) -
#45 Posted by Lego_My_Eggo (1068 posts) -

It is to hard to choose, but this is definitely up there near the top.

#46 Posted by Ghost_of_Perdition (751 posts) -

My favorite would be Pantera's cover of Black Sabbath's Planet Caravan. All my troubles just melt away.

#47 Posted by Red (6146 posts) -

All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem. It's funny, it's sad, it's poignant, but I still want to dance to it.

#48 Edited by Kerned (1170 posts) -

I couldn't possibly choose, but since last.fm has been brought up...

According to last.fm (which... whatever), my most listened to song since July 26, 2006 is Wrapped Up in Books by Belle and Sebastian. 67 plays out of a total of almost 60,000, so I don't know how meaningful that is. I will say this: it's a good song, and Belle and Sebastian is the shit, but this is in no way my favorite song of theirs... or of all time.

#49 Posted by Seppli (11233 posts) -

Just did some Spotify research on what's up with Dendemann, the rapper of the defunct Eins Zwo. I declare this to be my favorite song of all time, right now...

Dendemann - Freie Radikale GbRdH

I'm growing abs from giggling and smiling so hard...

#50 Posted by villainy (624 posts) -

@Chop: Good choice!

No definite favorite I guess but this is always one of the first that comes to mind when the question comes up.
