I can't believe this was the best song. I was going to suggest Nazareth - "Hair of the Dog" but this one has ruled the charts for 7 months. Why try to take it down.

That one IS tough to beat, but I think I can top it with Joga by Bjork.

Have to disagree on that, Nutshell is my favorite song of all-time.

I thought maybe this thread was going to be limited to songs that were released this year.

Anyway, I will nominate (Antichrist Television Blues) by Arcade Fire

A mod made this thread, not me. That song is BY FAR my favorite song of this year, so far.
