'Leafy Avenue' by Andy Shearer ft Chrissy Armstrong (vocals).

It reminds me of my first love and keeping it a secret from my parents.

The Kinks' "Better Things" -- it just never fails to lift my spirits.

Neil Young-"Cowgirl In The Sand".
Love the lyrics, and the crazy guitar solos.

In My Life-The Beatles

My favorite due to performance, production, engineering, instrumentation, composition. In a little over 2 minutes, the song describes life through a series of people, places, and experiences we go through. The singer is grateful for all experiences and people that life puts us through and together with. He then expresses complete LOVE for the one he's telling the story to.

This may very well be the finest song ever created.

Literally dozens or more could make my #1 at any given time. In My Life has made my top-5 favorite since I heard it the very first time, over 40 years ago.

All the best this evening,

"O Holy Night". For me, this is the highest peak of beauty by which all other beautiful things are measured. It still makes me cry every now and then. My favorite version is Reba McEntire's.

"Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who. Because it's as powerful, true and energetic as ever. Roger Daltrey's lead vocal is jaw-dropping. It's also the best set closer a band ever had.

The Beatles are my all-time favorite group but "Won't Get Fooled Again" remains my favorite song.

Won't Get Fooled Again"--The Oo'

1-"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss"--It rings true after every election and even if you get a new boss at work.
2-THE SCREAM! (my phone ring combines the two above)
3-Fantastic live tune.
4-The power chords being whipped by flying windmills.
5-Moon's drumming.
6-Roger's powerful and determined interpretation of the lyrics.
7-Big John smacking his bass notes all around.
8-It's on the record with the #1 cover of all time!
9-I love LONG songs!
10-It's a song that no cover version can do justice to it...sorry Sammy.

Very nice summation !

Grandpa Tom,
Great post. It's one of my favorite songs also. I would only rate 'A Day In The Life' as better.

Posted on Sep 12, 2012, 2:02:40 PM PDT
My alltime favorite song is 'All Along the Watchtower'.
Great lyrics by my favorite song writer.
And, played by the greatest guitar player ever.
Dylan liked Jimi's version so much, he now does it that way.
Those opening notes always get me up.

You nailed it. Agreed!!!

Grandpa Tom says:
Totally agree except the cover isn't the best of all time. Only my observation, tho.

Hi, John:

Thank you for your kind words...

LIFE would make the cut on many days. As would Revolution, Here Comes The Sun, Nowhere Man,......

My favorite is "Dear Prudence" although I find it hard to explain why. I like how simple and direct it is, the positive feeling it projects and how the song builds. Love how it's put together, the guitar work especially.

I think "Nessun Dorma" from Turandot by Puccini is the most beautiful of melodies.

i would say my favorite is "The Spirit of Radio" by Rush. Once I hear it, it sticks in my head for days. I will end up tapping the drum beat to it for hours. The lyrics are pretty solid as well.

Grandpa Tom says: "In My Life" -The Beatles

Very excellent choice, and would also definitely be in my top 10. But that's part of problem - I have soooooo many favorites, it would be impossible for me to nail it down to one. Depends on my mood at any given point in time.

But back to "In My Life". Your description is spot on as to what makes it a great song. What always amazed me also was the maturity of the song - if one didn't know any better, you'd think it were written by a man in his 50's or 60's. So many of life experiences expressed so well for a guy who was barely out of his teens!

On any given day, and depending on what I'm doing, and who I'm with (maybe nobody) any one of these could be called my favorites:

Firth of Fifth - Genesis
How Long - from Dire Straights' last album. Country pickin' that would make most of today's "country" players cry.
In My Life - The Beatles
Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie
Ripple - Grateful Dead
Eyes of the World - Grateful Dead
City of New Orleans - Arlo Guthrie
Long May You Run - Neil Young
Jesus, Don't Cry - Wilco
South Side of the Sky - Yes
Awaken - Yes
Matte Kudasai - King Crimson
It Makes No Difference - The Band
The Promise - When In Rome

This was a hard choice. Black Sabbath is my favorite band but, Im going with-

Raining Blood-Slayer

Best show closer ever! It just goes faster and faster until it explodes.

Are they signed by 'I backed up and ran over the mutt again' or am i thinking of someone else? *Joke* I've never heard of this song or A.C., I'll have to check them both out.
