What do you belive is the best song ever.

Think wisely.


Mine is "NOFX:The Decline"

I used to be into punk but then I got into classic rock. BUT EVEN THOUGH ITS STILL PUNK I still love that song to death. Thats my favorite song. Its 18:21 minutes long.

Im sure most of you will disagree with me - Maroon 5 - The Sun

Im young, and my knowledge in music is'nt as big as yours. But imo this is a great song all around.

Iron Maiden - Paschendale

A 9 minute epic, Maiden's homage to the young men who died in the First World War. The battle for Paschendale was 1917, IIRC. And I think it was when the Germans crucified the British POW.

Bruce ****enson sings with his air raid siren voice and the rhythmn of a machine gun. Steve Harris (the bassist) is probably the greatest songwriter of his generation, and he excels himself on this one. And Maiden are, IMO, the most talented band in the world musically. I can't think of any other song where the music is so evocative. Having three guitars (and all of them awesome - Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Janick Gers are all brilliant guitarists) helps, too. And the lyrics!

For you Axe
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Paschendale
Harris/Smith

In a foreign field he lay
Lonely soldier unkown grave
On his dying words he prays
Tell the world of Paschendale

Relive all that he's been through
Last communioun of his soul
Rust your bullets with his tears
Let me tell you 'bout his years

Laying low in a blood filled trench
Kill tim 'til my very own death
On my face I can feel the falling rain
Never see my friends again

In the smoke in the mud and lead
Smell the fear and the feeling of dread
Soon be time to go over the wall
Rapid fire and the end of us all

Whistles, shouts and more gun fire
Lifeless bodies hang on barbed wire
Battlefield nothing but a bloody tomb
Be reunited with my dead friends soon

Many soldiers eighteen years
Drown in mud no more tears
Surely a war no-one can win
Killing time about to begin

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

The bodies of ours and our foes
The sea of death it overflows
In no man's kand god only knows
Into jaws of death we go

Crucified as if on a cross
Allied troops they mourn their loss
German war propaganda machine
Such before has never been seen

Swear I heard the angels cry
Pray to god no more may die
So that people know the truth
Tell the tale of Paschendale

Cruelty has a human heart
Everyman does play his part
Terror of the men we kill
The human heart is hungry still

I stand my ground for the very last time
Gun is ready as I stand in line
Nervous wait for the whistle to blow
Rush of blood and over we go

Blood is falling like the rain
It's crimson cloak unveils again
The sound of guns can't hid their shame
And so we die on Paschendale

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
Running straight at the cannon fire
Running blind as I hold my breath
Say a prayer symphony of death

As we charge the enemy lines
A burst of fire and we go down
I choke a cry but no-one hears
Fell the blood go down my throat

Home, far away
From the war, a chance to live again
Home, far away
But the war, no chance to live again

See my spirit on the wind
Across the lines beyond the hill
Friend and foe will meet again
Those who died at Paschendale

There is no way, and I repeat, no way that a rap song is the best song ever. No way at all.

Why do you bother being into "one" type of music. Just because you aren't "into" something doesn't mean you can't like songs from that genre. Sorry, that just caught my immediate attention.

My fave songs are Lucia de Lammermoor c/ Diva Dance (sp?) from Fifth Element and, of course, Toccata and Fugue in Dm.

As for bands . . . fave song is a toss-up between Nebel, Ohne dich and Spieluhr.

And I like rap: if you can say that about rap, then you should be able to say that about any genre. To state your opinion as fact is folly . . .

I never said I wasnt into rap or I dont like it. All I said was theres no way that there can be a rap song being the greatest song ever. But thats Opinion.

Sheesh.

Neon isn't this supposed to be your (as in my) favorite song? I didn't say that your favorite song was the worst. I like that song you don't.
