    If I had to pick just one... I guess I have to go with Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly." If I could have any more, Pearl Jam's "Yellow Ledbetter" would be up there, and "Disarm" by the Smashing Pumpkins (I'm a sucker for violin, especially in a rock song...).

    Hank Williams Sr - I can't Help It (if I'm Still in Love with You). Don't know why but it is just my favorite.

    Another song that I forgot to mention that I really liked a lot - "Last Days of May" by Blue Oyster Cult from their first album.

    You beat me to it!
    I like SOME of every type of music, and there are GREAT ones here.

    My all time favorite has to be Mike + The Mechanics doing Silent Running, and that is mainly for the lyrics, which are absolutely haunting to me.

    Nobody here can possibly not like these:

    Take the children and yourself
    And hide out in the cellar
    By now the fighting will be close at hand
    Don't believe the church and state
    And everything they tell you
    Believe in me, I'm with the high command

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    There's a gun and ammunition
    Just inside the doorway
    Use it only in emergency
    Better you should pray to God
    The Father and the Spirit
    Will guide you and protect from up here

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Swear allegiance to the flag
    Whatever flag they offer
    Never hint at what you really feel
    Teach the children quietly
    For some day sons and daughters
    Will rise up and fight while we stood still

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Without a doubt, "Nessun Dorma" as performed HERE by the greatest tenor of our generation, if not the 20th century. (Well, maybe second to Marlin).

    It's only 3 minutes but everyone should listen to it at least once in their lives.

    Back in the 60's I used to eat lunch everyday at a burger stand near where I worked, and play two songs on the Juke Box,

    Simon and Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence" and

    The Mama's and the Poppa's "California Dreaming"

    To this day when I hear either of those songs, I can still taste those hamburgers!!!

    I also liked just about anything form CCR.

    Manfred Mann's Earth Band: Blinded By the Light

    If I had to nail it down to a single song ever... but then it's that unquestionably.

    It is difficult to narrow down a lifetime of favorite music of all styles. Favorites change over the years!

    One of mine is Electric Light Orchestra: Hold On Tight. It's a mood-lifter for me.

    This question has really tested some folk.

    I have no musical ability or taste, when I got married I didn't even own an record player! Told my music mad brother in law I bought a record once, didn't like it so never bought another.

    In truth I love having music around when I work, especially the drawing and painting. It helps and really can change your mood. :)

    I'm like TeeJay9, i remember when a new Beatles album came out I would find a new Beatles song that would be my favorite.
    I got an MP3 player for Christmas and found some stuff from the Beatles masters, earlier versions of some hit Beatles songs. I like hearing the comments the guys were making while recording.
    I like most anything by Genesis, Sting, and lots of others.
    Great music is like great food. I don't have one favorite, I like the variety of tastes and flavors.
  14. I daresay you don't choose the music your son and daughter usually listen to, Tranter! It would probably drive you to drink. :D;) I have reached the conclusion than when it comes to music there is no bridge between the generations. The stuff my kids listened to when they were younger, and still listen to today, drives me nuts! Of course, the stuff I like drives them nuts too! :rolleyes:

    Holy cow!! I am a music nut as well. It all depends on the mood. I can swing from Country to Classical in a heart beat. Had to go play in a soft ball game and when I got there Andrea Bocelli was screaming out of my speakers. I love the Eagles, Simon and Garfunkle, Kansas, Lynrd Skynrd, Genesis, Shania Twain, etc. The only stuff I don't like is heavy metal and rap.

    I heard it thru the grapevine, Creedence Clear Water's version is one, lotsa Mega Death, Metallica, Rage Against the Machine, Supultura, and old bluegrass, and that good "ole" old timey music. We're an American Band by Grand funk, Tak'in Care of Business by Bachman Turner Overdrive, Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash, all the Travel'in Willbury's, good stuff.
