Hello :blink:

 

Due the recent popularity of the "favorites" threads, I thought I would cash in on this wave of goodness with my own. :D

 

So, favorite songs, any genre, any band/artist. What songs move you, make you cry, make long lost memories resurface with great joys, etc.

 

Mine are, in no particular order:

 

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Born to be my Baby - Bon Jovi

Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits

Thunderstruck - AC/DC

Fat bottom Girls - Queen

Born to be Wild - Steppenwolf

Where the Streets Have No Name - U2

X-Japan's Art of Life always ends up as one of my choices on this list. Mostly because it manages to be 28 minutes long without being boring.

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

Saddest. Thread. Ever.

 

Exactly.

 

There isn't one single song that in the world where the music is touching, complex, melodic, epic and beautiful + the lyrics are inspiring, thougthprovoking, personal and emotional at the same time.

Kenny Rogers: The Gambler

 

 

This made me laugh and some soft drink came out my nose. ;)

People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

is it hard riding such a high horse?

 

Eh? You must've misunderstood me. What i meant was that this thread proves that there isn't one single song that can universally be described as the best ever.

You may mock, but the time-proven adages of wisdom that Kenny imparts in the revelational muse, carefully crafted in a ballad about poker, are not to be (wet) sniffed at. ;)"

Oh, so now it's "best song ever" and not "Favorite songs." There is a distinct difference there. I think someone needs to start another topic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I WAS ONLY KIDDING!

PLEASE DO NOT START ANOTHER TOPIC!

Know when to hold 'em

Know when to fold 'em

Know when to walk away

Know when to run.

 

Never count your money,

While you're sittin' at the table;

There'll be time 'nough for countin'

When the dealin's done ...
