I'm not against these kind of threads but for me it is impossible. I am more likely to be able to give you a favorite album. Too many songs, too many choices and too many moods!!
Rain Song by Zep
Changes from day to day, far too many favourites to choose from anyway. Here's my favourite, right at this minute....
The Innkeepers, from Maine, and Trella.
I'm afraid the last time I had an answer for that question was about 40 years ago and even then it was subject to change.
Johnny Rivers - Poor Side of Town
I could totally say this if not for a hundred other songs I feel the same about.
That's kinda why I always name that song. It's easier for me to pick that one great song of the past than it is to select from the dozens I love from my lifetime. But I really do love "Stardust."
"By This River" - Brian Eno
Wow yep me too. It's a beautifully composed and written song in every respect. Kind of perfect actually.
Abba, "The Name of The Game".
Although I love rock and roll, jazz, classical and other types of music, a bulk of my favorite songs come from the great American songbook, i.e., Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Harlon Arlen. Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael, Victor Young, etc.
Eric Clapton - "Don't Know Why"
Probably 'Gimme Shelter'.
"Echoes" - Pink Floyd
The Space I Occupy by windings
Any particular version? I love Nat King Cole's take. Even Manilow did a nice job in the 80s. Any others I should check out?
Nat Cole's is great but I love Louis. Armstrongs version from 1931 ( I think) and Sinatra's from 1961 on Sinatra & Strings
Peace and love✌
Led Zeppelin- "Over the Hills and Far Away" (for now at least)
One of my absolute fav. There's something about a few selected songs that you can listen to over and over and over again and still it grabs you:
Willie Nelson's take is great too.
Hello It's Me- Todd
Today it's Stevie Wonder's Knocks Me Off My Feet
I like Sinatra's version of Stardust, too. He sings the song with a sigh in his voice, just wish it went on longer. I know I can Google other versions, just interesting to see what y'all think.
