Mine would be 'Stairway to Heaven' by Led Zeppelin.

8 minutes of epicness that slowly builds up as the song goes on.

What is yours? (if you have one)

Not sure if I have one definitive favorite song, it changes with my mood. Right now I really like "The X-Women Rap" and "Back Home" both by Adam Warrock.

I'm gonna say Finlandia by Sibelius.

But I'm still turning this into a top 5 list, like it or not!

1. Sibelius - Finlandia
2. The Trammps - Disco Inferno
3. Demis Roussos - Forever And Ever
4. Ducktales (NES) - The Moon
5. Sort Vokter - Fjellstev

It very well may be "November Rain" by Guns N Roses, but I feel as though it changes now and then. "Girl's Not Grey" and "I Hope You Suffer" from AFI are way, way up there, as is "Keep 'Em Separated" by The Offspring. I'm really weird with music.

House of the Rising Sun by The Animals and Jealous Guy by John Lennon.

Lethal Lullaby

"Headless Waltz" by Voltaire.

'Fame/Infamy' by Fall Out Boy, that's the song I'm quoting in my sig.

10-28-2013, 05:05 PM
Someone asked me this the other day and I just couldn't come up with an answer. Its very dependant on the time, place, and mood I'm in.

If I had to pick only one on the top of my head though, I'd probably go with Lifehouse - Near Life Experience.

Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd - the ending solo is the main reason.

10-29-2013, 09:35 AM
Megadeth-"Holy Wars...The Punishment Due". Dat solo.

"Marquee Moon" by Television. 10 minutes long, and it still leaves you wanting more.

10-31-2013, 09:19 AM

Excellent choice!

11-01-2013, 10:00 PM
I need to revisit my list, because the best song in the world is

Judas Priest - Painkiller

edit: need a reason huh? How about "Faster than a laser bullet, louder than an atom bomb!!!!!!!"

11-02-2013, 11:24 PM
Have two. The way I am from Eminem and Let the truth be told by Z-ro

Was going to post the very same song before I even read your post :lol:

it's not an original choice, but it is a sensational song.

This old question.
Some good choices on this thread so far, painkiller, November rain.
It's all so personal.
Atm I'm listening to the new Trivium album Vengeance falls and I can't stop listening to it, so it's my favourite thing to listen to atm I guess.
All time favourite song out of the bazillions I've loved, aarghh, I guess there's one.
Songs like thorns of crimson death and xeper-i-set by dissectionare right up there for me, but I'll have to say fade to black by Metallica. Melancholic epicness on electric guitar is a winning combination for me.

Holiday: Have a Holly Jolly Christmas. It has a great melody, gives you the mention that there might not be snow, gives a great lesson about how to be joyous and loving, and is truly the last great "Old time Christmas" song, released in 1964. People don't know who Burl Ives is, so it has the mystique of a bygone song.

Other: Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Even the older folks like it with its Broadway-like sound with great harmony, had one of the most innovative music videos of its time, and great hooks. I can listen to it all day and never get tired of it.

My two all-time faves would have to be "The Power of Love" by Heuy Lewis and the News, and "For the Glory of Love" by Peter Cetera. I'm a romantic at heart, and those two songs just really express my feelings on the subject.

Other favorites- and not so mushy ones- are Aha's "Take On Me" (love that song- it's one of the best of the 80's, and such a great video back in the day!), Meat Loaf's "Original Sin", and Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock and Roll". I also love listening to ZZ Top's "Can't Stop Rockin", Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer", and Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun".

Ah, Christmas music! My two faves there are "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby, and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree".

Edit: I almost forgot one! Trans-Siberian Orchestra's (formerly Savatage) "Christmas in Sarajevo" aka Carol of the Bells. Their version is just so powerful and beautiful!
