Conclusion? The best music of all time is nigh-impossible to objectively define.
|By Gameguy56 (Gameguy56) on Wednesday, June 09, 2004 - 03:11 pm: Edit|
In no particular order and in no particular genre, my fav songs of the moment
Morning Glory-Oasis (best song on that incredible album)
Electrical Storm- U2 (another great from U2)
Pride-U2(MLK honoured in this classic peice of brit-rock)
Keep on Loving You-Reo Speedwagon (THE BEST power-ballad of the 80s)
Big Machine-Goo Goo Dolls (just a great altern rock song)
|By Myway (Myway) on Wednesday, June 09, 2004 - 06:05 pm: Edit|
"Take My Hand" - Dido
"Dancing in the Moonlight" - King Harvest
"Stand by Me" - Ben E. King
"Beautiful Day" - U2
"One Thing" - Finger Eleven
That probably isn't the best list I could've come up with, but this is a hard question!

It's kind of a loaded question. On the one hand, songs like "Stairway to Heaven" are absolutely amazing in a technical sense but then there are more modern songs from say... The Shins that, when performed live, are jaw-dropping. These modern songs are these beautiful creations of yesteryear but when live they hold sincerity, energy and enthusiasm at such a high standard you can't help but be greatly impressed.
|By Susu (Susu) on Friday, June 11, 2004 - 07:50 pm: Edit|
Listen, grasshoppers, you need to expand your horizons.
1. "Layla". Best guitar solo ever.
2. "Born in the USA" Bruce!
3. "Respect" by Aretha
4. "London Calling" the Clash
5. "Superstition" Santana plus Rob Thomas? Not a party without it!
|By Encomium (Encomium) on Friday, June 11, 2004 - 08:22 pm: Edit|
The best song ever created:
"Unfinished Sympathy" by Massive Attack.

"Build me up buttercup" by the Temptations

The Shins! I just "disovered" them yesterday! They're awesome... "When You Notice The Stripes" sounds like a new Simon and Garfunkel song. So many of their songs are great.

Top 5 songs from the past 25 years (As seen on VH1.com)
1. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
2. Michael Jackson - Billie Jean
3. Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine
4. Eminem - 8 Mile
5. U2 - One
I think...#4 should be outta there and replaced with something by the Beatles

aspirer42, be honest now: are you 50 years old?
|By Vegangirl (Vegangirl) on Saturday, June 12, 2004 - 02:18 am: Edit|
Welshie and Duffy, I love love love the shins! They have a Simon & Garkfunkel/Beatles flavor and so much energy. I love it! BTW, Welshie, you were the one who started that modest mouse thread, weren't you? I got Good News For People Who Love Bad news and I'm very impressed. Definitely their best CD!
Sorry to get off subject, guys! I don't think it's possible to define the top five songs...
|By Welshie (Welshie) on Saturday, June 12, 2004 - 02:51 am: Edit|
I saw The Shins in Pomona on the 5th-- truly truly the best performance I have ever seen, heard, or experienced. Their fast songs were placed fast and full of energy (but not rushed) and their slow songs (even just the mellow portions of fast songs) were placed slow and meaningful-- it was amazing, nothing short. As per Modest Mouse and "Good News..." I love the album but must admit that I prefer the old, slower, more mellow Modest Mouse. Don't get me wrong, love the album, but I've heard better Modest Mouse, y'know? Anywho, move along with your business.

"I think...#4 should be outta there and replaced with something by the Beatles "
I may be mistaken, but weren't the Beatles from the 60s? That would be more than 25 years ago ("Top 5 songs from the past 25 years (As seen on VH1.com"))....yeah.
|By Platinumtlc (Platinumtlc) on Saturday, June 12, 2004 - 02:03 pm: Edit|

Welshie, an advertisement for that concert you went to in Pomona was actually what tipped off my curiosity towards them. Sadly, the 5th was my HS graduation day, so I didn't bother checking out the Shins until a couple days after...
|By Macandcheese (Macandcheese) on Saturday, June 12, 2004 - 09:30 pm: Edit|

5.Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles
4.The Sounds of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
3.Paint it Black - Rolling Stones
2.Something - The Beatles
1.Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles

|By Xenowang (Xenowang) on Tuesday, June 15, 2004 - 06:41 pm: Edit|
In no particular order:
1. Scarred- Dream Theater (this is one of the pinnacles of prog-rock. I dare ANYBODY to beat the amazing musicianship in this song)
2. The Drapery Falls- Opeth
3. Bunch of different songs from A Perfect Circle/Tool
4. Godhead's Lament- Opeth
5. For the Love of God- Steve Vai
|By Confetti1234 (Confetti1234) on Tuesday, June 15, 2004 - 07:18 pm: Edit|
For raw musicianship on stage, I suggest everyone listen to Amazing Journey/Sparks or Young Man Blues from Live at Leeds. That will show you just how good live rock can be.
|By Clickspring (Clickspring) on Tuesday, June 15, 2004 - 07:22 pm: Edit|
1. Kashmir by Led Zepplin
2. Hotel California by The Eagles
