Two Hundred and Twenty Seventh Question

What is your favorite song?


  • At 9:10 AM, Blogger Sublime said…

    For me, music has so much meaning that it's hard to pick just one or two songs as favorites. I have a library of songs in my head that have different meanings for different times throughout my life.

    A few of the current ones are:

    "Hate Me" - Blue October
    "So Far Away" - Staind
    "Sometimes a Fantasy" - Billy Joel
    "Waiting for Tonight" - Tom Petty
    "Solsbury Hill" - Peter Gabriel

    Also, I need some new music to listen to! Please suggest something you are currently into.

    Take care all,

    Ridiculous to choose a single song…but, I’ll go with “The Moth” by Aimee Mann

  • At 12:16 PM, Blogger Mind Sprite said…

    I have many favorite songs, but here are a couple that immediately come to mind:

    "Streets with No Name" - U2
    "Can't Make You Love Me" - Bonnie Raitt
    "Angels" - Sarah McLachlan
    "My Immortal" - Evanescence

    Right now, I'm really into Imogene Heap/Frou Frou and the Fruit Bats. Check em out!

    Beautiful-by Joydrop (I think everyone has to have a "beautiful" song that they can listen to and feel better about themselves and such...and for me this is mine ;-)
    Science-System of a Down (I think there is something to this song, I really do.)
    Mirror Waters and Stonegarden by the Gathering (in addition to Marooned, Locked Away, Monsters....In essence I <3 the Gathering.)

    Old things:

    "Laura" (an old ballad from the movie of the same name) any version, but especially Gerry Mulligan's live recording from the 1954 Paris Jazz festival.

    "Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans" any, but especially Louis Armstrong and Jack Teagarden's from the late 40's.

    "Skylark" (another old ballad), any version, but especially Bunny Berigan's.

    "I Can't Get Started"- Bunny Berigan

    Newer things:

    Joni Mitchell- the "Miles of Aisles" recordings, followed by everything else she's ever done.

    Lara St. John- "Gypsy"

    Sophie B. Hawkins-"Timbre", "Whaler", "Tongues and Tails"

    Alannah Myles- "Rockinghorse", "Alannah", "Alannah Myles"

    and then there are the times that only Janis will do...

    Hmmm, this is a very difficult question to respond to, as there are a number of outstanding pieces in various categories – per decade? – that signals I am “ancient”! Ouch…

    I have to say that among my dozens and dozens of favorites, the two that I pick consistently are
    Imagine, from the Beatles and,
    the violin solo (who would have thank it!)
    Meditation, from the Opera Tais
