Re: Best song ever written?

You know, I think that this is really more complicated then just putting down songs and saying why you like them. My favorite song would probably be something in the punk rock genre, blink 182 or green day. But I wouldn't dare say it's the best song ever written. There are so many songs that came out of the late mid 1900s that were just amazing. You have the Beatles, Queen, and many other bands that played then and just revolutionized music. But then what about really old things, like Mozart and Beethoven. Those are complete masterpieces, defiinately worthy of an all time award.

But, contrary to all I just said, I'll follow the trend and list my favorite as "the best ever" Ironic, yes?

How could you forget Mick Jagger?

But you're right: Disease is a pretty damn awesome song. (It's so amazing how Matchbox 20 went from being an only half-decent pop/rock group to a pretty skilled rock band)

Joni Mitchell has an excellent voice. I like "Big Yellow Taxi". Greenday did a pretty good version of it too. Sort of their thing.

That song is too gimmicky and cutesy to be considered greatest. Funny thing though: Matel tried to sue Aqua for associating Barbie with such raunchy lyrics.

Re: Best song ever written?

Granted, I am going through a Lifehouse phase at the moment, but I think there are several of their songs that could be easy contenders for the title of best song ever written. Everything and Breathing are my top two though. Also, I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing by Aerosmith, When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne, Always by Bon Jovi and A Different Corner by George Michael are among my favourites.

Other favs (can't pick one, its impossible)

I'm Only Sleeping - The Beatles
Scarborough Fair/Canticle - Simon and Garfunkle
Blue - Joni Mitchell
Hurt - Johnny Cash

And the list could go on
I love hurt by johnny cash, the video and the way he sings it makes me cry, its such an emotional and intense song.

Oh damn. I don't know why I couldn't think of it. I've been a little out of it lately, what with school starting and all.

I like the Counting Crows version of it the best. They did a really good job with it.

Re: Best song ever written?

I didn't know that's who you were named after, Joni!! Is her name pronounced the same as yours is?? I always thought it wasn't...

Anyway, as for the best song ever... well, there's so many I love, it's too hard to pick just one, but I'll try and narrow it down. One of the best ever in my opinion, just for the obscure awesomeness of it would have to be Safety Dance. Other than that, something by the Clash, for sure, English Civil War is one of their best in my opinon. There's also Back on the Chain Gang by the Pretenders, and Just Like Heaven by the Cure. Or Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran, and 11:59 by Blondie. Umm.... right, so, see why this is so difficult for me??? And looking at that, I have some weird music taste.

Re: Best song ever written?

My mom says it is pronounced like mine, but only people who watch, not read, interviews with her would know, or have actually heard her name. . .

Re: Best song ever written?

This is not strictly on topic, but if any of you guys want to hear a song that will remind you instantly of Luna Lovegood, go to Napster or ITunes and download "Starfish and Coffee" by Prince. It's a great song.
