Simply way too many to pick just five.


"Perhaps Love", sung by John Denver & Plácido Domingo.

I have this on an album from years ago....they were great singing together.


Too many to mention. Off the top of my head though:

  • Message in a Bottle - The Police
  • Every Little Thing She Does is Magic - The Police
  • Love's In Need of Love Today - Stevie Wonder
  • You Should Be Dancing - Bee Gees
  • Freedom 90 Live - George Michael
  • Don't Stop Till You Get Enough - Michael Jackson
  • You Oughta Know - Alannis Morrisette
  • Dreaming With A Broken Heart - John Mayer
  • Corner of the Sky - Pippin cast album (1972)

she grew up tall she grew up right ......with them indiana boys on them indiana nights

I'm not saying that song was written about me, but I'm not saying it wasn't either. ?


My alltime favorite song in the universe:

A student asked me if I played piano so I played (with an emphases on pain) a bit of that while testing the electric piano for a school music program. She noted. That is a very sad song.

Also one of my favorite piano works.


Probably one of my all-time favorites: Def Leppard - Hysteria


I already left a post saying too many to list and I love a lot of classical songs too, but I have two favourites at the present and I am posting them here now. The first is Benny Andersson of ABBA’s song Give Me My Song sung by Bryn Terfel and Sissel Kyrkjebo and the second is Morten Harket singing his own song There Is A Place.

Oh and another Benny Andersson song sung by Sissel which I love....Like.An Angel Passing Through My Room.


My favorite song is "Let It Be" by the Beatles.

I'm gonna see Ozzy this weekend. He doesn't know it, but we are spending my birthday together!

@Nichole765 []

@joeymf86 we just won't tell Sharon. Hehehe


I feel Blue October is severely underrated. I've traveled all over the midwest to see their live shows.


Currently. This list changes all the time.

Close to The Edge - Yes

Norwegian Wood - The Beatles

The Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin

Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now - The Smiths

Fearless - Pink Floyd

"The Dance" sung by Garth Brooks.

His last tour was very impressive. Three sold-out nights in Indy. He is returning to play at Notre Dame sometime in the winter

@Nichole765 I really do not care for Garth Brooks but this song has a very powerful meaning to life.

@jlynn37 yeah he's definitely not my genre. But to produce an album that will sell out shows after 15,20 years is impressive.


Limiting it to five is a difficult task! I am going to have to give this some substantial thought.

Yeah I really was undecided.

Those are the ones I always return to.

Finalized my list! In no order:

On the Turning Away-Pink Floyd
Am I Evil-Diamond Head
Rags to Riches- Tony Bennet
Promised Land-Chuck Berry
Fade to Black-Metallica


Love song - the cure
Don't fear the reaper - blue otster cult
Alabama song (whiskey bar) the doors
Honour - VNV Nation
Herion she said -wolfsheim

The Cure ?

  1. Blowin' in the Wind: Peter Paul and Mary
  2. Woman: John Lennon
  3. Man in the Mirror: Micheal Jackson
  4. What a Wonderful World: Lewis Armstrong
  5. Imagine: John Lennon

I like you taste. ABBA is fabulous.

Honestly I only know that one ABBA song. When I had my first love interest (15, 16), it was "our song" ?

I think that Peter Paul and Mary songs are considered to be in the folk genre.


"Telephone Line", by Electric Light Orchestra
"Swamped", by Lacuna Coil
"Dream Weaver", by Gary Wright
"Budding Trees", by Nahko Bear and the Medicine for the People
"Nothing's Free", by Phoebe Warden


Too many to name.

Beyond The Realms Of Death, Judas Priest ;
Where The Wild Roses Grow, Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue ;
Dancing In The Dark, Bruce Springsteen ;
Save A Prayer, Duran Duran ;
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son, Iron Maiden ;
Solitude, Black Sabbath ;
Samarithan, Candlemass ;
Black Dog, Led Zeppelin ;
Pursuit Of The Vikings, Amon Amarth ;
Future World, Helloween ;
Disposable Heroes, Metallica ;

Everything of Leonard Cohen


Eight Miles High - The Byrds
Dark Star - Grateful Dead
Sands of Time - Fleetwood Mac
Over the Rainbow - Eva Cassidy
Nowhere Man - The Beatles


"You Make My Dreams", by Hall & Oates has been in my head for for a few weeks... There are worse songs to be stuck there


My fave song can change on a daily basis! Couple faces this moment

'59 Sound-The Gaslight Anthem
White People for Peace-Against Me!
Wide Awake!-the Parquet Courts
Take 5-Dave Brubek

Bonus deep cut
Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)-Us3


This song is on repeat in my son's room lately. The joys of having preteen boys. Thanks YouTube.

I feel for anyone subjected to repeated listenings of AC/DC agai st their will.

@QuinnDaniels they are 12 & 10. So it's hilarious they are saying big balls ?


Judee Sill- Lamb Ran Away With the Crown
Steely Dan- Dr. Wu
The Band- Unfaithful Servant
John Prine- Paradise
Seals and Croft- Summer Breeze

Primarily, songs that are depressing, I have two different listening patterns. One is a cool type of casual listening, one is a more sad, meaningful type mood. This is definitely 70's music, with the exception of Unfaithful (69). This is the tip of the iceberg of music that I might deem as go to music.
