Mine: R.E.M - Harborcoat

This is a very early REM song. It brings back a lot of memories about travelling around eastern europe in 1997, when I had two or three cassettes with me for the trip and this was the song which was played most. I've never been able to go without listening to it for very long, even though my music tastes have changed drastically.

What about you? What is your favourite song ever and why?

Impossible. Changes daily.
That's like asking somebody to choose between their children.

right now, anything off of OK Computer by Radiohead

I'm sure everyone has a favourite. Don't know why, but I have a really eclectic music collection - but I can still pick one favourite.

Rock - Crazy On You by Heart - because the Wilson sisters were my first love.

Celtic - Drowsy Maggie/Rakish Paddy/Harvest Storm by Altan - because music doesn't get any better than this. I know that seems like 3 tunes but they're strung together (typical of celtic music) and if you're not familiar with the music - it'd seem like one.

Love will tear us apart - Joy Division

My favourite changes but this has never left the top five though Teenage Kicks by the Undertones is Pushing. On another note Dizzie Rascal was a well deserved Mercury music winner tonight.

Exhuming McCarthy by R.E.M. is a great song and is near the top of any list of favorite songs I could make. Some other posibilities:

True Faith by New Order
Thunderstruck by AC/DC
Suburbia by Pet Shop Boys
Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana

BTW edit_g, I saw R.E.M. in concert last Monday. One of the best shows I have ever seen (other than when I saw them on the Monster tour). Was only 8 people back from the stage. Good times

I can't think of any other band I'd like to see live more - and I will - next time they come around. I have got Stipe's autograph though - but that's a different story. :)

Joy Division, New Order, Simple Minds were on heavy rotation in my car last month.

But this month I'm back to the 70's, so I've got Sylvester singing "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" and "Do Ya Wanna Funk." There's so much exuberance in his voice and songs that is really beautiful.

My wife won't let me play it in the house though.

Rock & Roll by the Velvet Underground. To me, it describes the process that someone goes through when they hear "the song".

I'm hoping that this thread will reveal if killroy's nick is an INXS reference, btw. :)

I'm going to add Out All Night by the Pietasters, too. Killer song from a killer band.

Jumpin Jack Flash - the Stones

Nick W - Sympathy for the Devil is in my top 5.

Saw the Stones a few weeks back in Toronto with 500 000 people, great day! But, I hate to say it, but AC/DC stole the show.

Too many concerts to list here but I am seeing REM in a couple of weeks. Reading these reviews is getting me psyched. I have tickets on the floor.

Listen to the song and you'll completely understand the obsession.

Hmmm......impossible to pick. I listened to the 59th Street Bridge song (feeling groovy) at least 3 times today after hearing this news [asia.reuters.com].

Machine Gun (the Band of Gypsys version) by Jimi Hendrix. Not so much the song as the bone-chilling performance (making this a bit off topic perhaps - sorry :))

Bet hardly anyones heard of these but meh, you'd all probably hate them anyway!

Operation Ivy - Unity, Jaded
Children of Bodom - Triple Corpse Hammer Blow
Macabre - Dog Guts

Those last guys Macabre write about nothing but serial killers, Dog Guts is about Jeffrey Dahmer and how he used to play with road kill when he was younger. Morbid but interesting to hear a whole cd on a killers life, and great drumming ^_-

Paranoid - Black Sabbath

but lots of others fit into the slot, some mentioned above.

Zeplin, Eagles, ACDC(bon scott days), Steppenwolf, . The list is toooooo long and depends on my mood. One minute Ace of Spades is top, then Joleen by the well endowed Dolly Parton, then Take five by Dave Brubeck etc etc

Why? Cos they all #### hot :)
