    This thread recognizes that people who love music are often overcome by the passion of a particular moment which takes them to a peak where no other song exists for them at that moment, in a sense (in another sense of course songs are related to one another and make intentional and unintentional allusions). Also they become enraptured with things for a while, maybe days or weeks, and then move on to something else which claims more of their attention. I'm not sure if I'm conveying the idea clearly but, in other words, one's "favorite song" is often a thing of the moment.

    Thus, post a "favorite" as often as you like!

    I searched and didn't find an existing "favorite song" thread, which seems impossible. But I hope the other one which I am sure exists asks for a longitudinal judgment, and this one asks for a momentary judgment. If it is a duplicate, then go ahead and let me have it.

    I was reminded of this in the Un-Grateful Thread, apologies as I don't remember by whom. It is currently my favorite song:

    It's funny. It's catchy. I don't know...I like it.

    Well, if I understand the fleeting nature of the premise... tonight, at this moment, I'll say "Rest" by Charlotte Gainsbourg.

    Prolly not. I mean, she wasn't a songwriter, so you at least need a song primarily associated with her, or perfected or popularized by her. And there aren't many of those, are there? This one has a previous version, but her's is definitive.
