Favorite song of all-time?

Here is the rule: You can only list one song. It's not a top ten list. If you can't narrow it down, don't post. Yeah I know, almost impossible. I'm sure a common response may be something akin to ..." it changes all the time" etc.

Anyway...humor me, if you will.

I'm not expecting more than a handful of responses. If that. Please note I can't participate in my own thread, because well... I can't decide between Mr. Bojangles, Station to Station, Supper's Ready, So What, Aint Talkin' 'Bout Love or Holidays in the Sun

You don't know the name of your favorite song? It's called "It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" .

Re: Favorite song of all-time?

Seriously though, I can't even pick a single favorite song on Songs in the Key of Life, let alone a single favorite song of all time.

A virtually impossible task for almost any dedicated music fan but I'll give it a go.

You're right, until I listen to "Ordinary Pain", or "Knocks Me Off My Feet", or "Summer Soft"...

And since I'm listening to "As" right now, it's obviously that one.

Re: Favorite song of all-time?

That's like asking me which single breath of air out of all the ones I've ever taken was my "favorite" one. Can't do it. Couldn't even begin to narrow it down to a Top 100.

What qualifies someone as a "dedicated" music fan? Is there some quota you have to meet?
