We are the champions. It's the ultimate anthem. From one of the best bands in history. A greatly uplifting song.

Wait, all of it or just that part? We Will Rock You is kinda a part of that song, and doesn't work well without it. But yes, Queen is great, love Killer Queen and Bicycle.

Pink Floyd Echoes Live in Pompeii. Fantastic variation on the studio release. David Gilmours guitar is a piece of artistic history and skilfully played. The bass is hypnotic. The drums are top class. Nick Mason puts so much energy into it. The keyboard is psychadelic(as is the whole track) but Richard Wright (remembering this was made in the early 70's) has used filters on the keys with a superb outcome.

It's so hard to name the best track. So many different genres. Any one who's into psy trance will probably say Simon Posfords Hallucinogen album Lone Deranger is probably by far one of the best produced. Each track rolls into eachother and the sounds that he has used and tweaked is amazing.

Anyway whats the next one? Cheesiest track ever?

Gonna have to go with Pink Floyd on this too, different song though..

"Wish you were here"

It's has the distinction of almost magickally making me stop and think of family and friends who have past on.. yet, strangely not depressing..

u2's "sunday bloody sunday" seems to be emotionally potent to me.

Sweet choice Crysta.

I was pondering on that and Shine on you Crazy Diamond (both totally awesome tracks)however it was the Live version of Echoes that swung me. A bit different to the studio one.

Today by The Smashing Pumpkins. I'm a huge alt rock fan and this is just about as good as you get. The song is simple, but deep. Pumpkins were one hell of a band. None of their songs have ever gotten old to me.

Can't decide between Stairway to Heaven (absolutely brilliant, great guitar solo) or Shine on you Crazy Diamond part one (which is just as good, the 8 minute build up rules!)

Lyin' Eyes by the Eagles

It's a sad story of infidelity.

Peace

Celtic Mist selects "Hotel California"; for a guitar song, I'd have to agree. This was the first album with Joe Walsh as the guitarits, and his solo at the end of the song epitomizes clean, understated rock and roll. I used to make all of my students learn it.

For a country song (and I'm talking country music here, not Nashville pop), I'd pick "He Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones, although there're several boy-girl duets by (of course) George Jones and Tammy Wynette that could be considered all-time greats, too.

For smooth old pop ballads, I'd pick "It Was a Very Good Year" by Frank Sinatra, or "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby.

For Choral songs, it would be either "Ein Feste' Burg ist Unser Gott" by Martin Luther or "Ode to Joy" by Ludwig von Beethoven.

All around greatest song ever? "Little Maggie" or "Rank Stranger", both by Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys.

Hotel California is most definitely a rock anthem, although it took me a while to figure out what "colitas" meant.

Somebody show me a band more talented than the Eagles........I dare ya!!!

NIN's hurt. It is a phenomenal song that is often understood, the best thing about it is just the way you can actually feel it. Its a shame its own writer couldnt do it justice but fortunatly Mr. Cash could.

In rock I'd have to say The Jimi Hendrix version of All Along The Watch Tower or Pink Floyds Learning To Fly
In country Drive On by Johnny Cash

In my book the best song is "Overkill" by Men at Work.

I was gonna say Grace, but i'm gonna say Forget Her by Jeff Buckley. It was so cool, on a trip to Italy, I was on a coach and it came on just as Mount Vesuvius came into view in a dusky light. Gave me shivers down my spine.

Well I am a big fan of 80's rock so I am going to have to go with Hysteria by Def Leppard and Patience by Guns N' Roses. The reason why I like Hysteria is because it is a feel good song about being head over heels for someone. The corus is also great. I like Patience because of the way Axel is singing at the last minute of the song and its message that patience will lead you to your goal in a relationship.

Master of Puppets by Metallica

Also, why no like American Pie? It is a great, inspirational song, especially when you know what the lyrics mean/represent.


I agree, the song is an awesome song


Stairway to Heaven is good as well tho
