I like this one

That song isn't on my CD ... I always knew it existed but I guess I never went out of my way to listen to it since it wasn't on my CD. It's pretty dang cool! 

That whole album, for the most part, is pretty great. A few lower tracks, but very consistently awesome. New Born is still my favorite Muse song I think ... (haven't really listened past Resistance besides some singles though). 

Yeah, Futurism is on the Japanese/B side version. Which by the way, all of their B sides are amazingly good.

I also really like New Born! OoS is such a good album.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Anyways to not be so sarcastic ... my real choice isn't Another Brick In The Wall haha ... 

It's probably a fight between these songs for #1 favorite:

All very sad songs ... pretty amazing though. Radiohead, Modest Mouse, and Unwound have a few very close tracks too .. 



Best song for New Year's Eve

In general I also think Bohemian Rhapsody. 



I don't know, all I know is that this is a tribute to it.



Edit: Damnit. Jokes been made.

Kinda cheating because it's technically 4 songs, but this would be the only thing I could outright call "greatest ever".

Everything else, including these 4 songs individually, would just be too equally awesome (in different ways) for me to call an outright winner. But my favorite out of the 4 songs here is Standin' in the Rain, if I had to go for a single song then I guess that would be my contender.

O fortuna, it fits any ocassion. A workout session, when you need to be pumped up and feel like the dogs bollachs, a wedding, a funeral... any situation is enhanced by O fortuna at the loudest you can bang it out.

Omg! This is totally hard! Except at the same time .... not?

Objectively(that means i'm stating facts), it's Another Brick in the Wall. Pink Floyd was already the KING of metaphors with The Dark Side of the MOON, but he just took it a step further with A Wall. An other brick in the wall is pure musical geniusousity. Few artists can be such progressiveness yet so punk at the same time. And "We don't need no, education",the irony, because they said that wrong! wrong! it's like poetry to my ears. It says a lot about Pink Floyd that it is harder to discuss his best song than it is what song can be the best ever, because truely only his songs can fight on that mountain for supremacy.

Yeh Roger Waters the main song writer is pretty amazing. shame he left the band and they continued without him after the album 'the Final Cut' which came out after the wall. Should listen to his solo album 'Amused to Death'. Very 'The Wall' like in its sound and feel.

Completely subjective (though I believe all art is) but my #1 is probably Forgotten Years by Midnight Oil.

Gets me every damn time; the lyrics, the music, the rows upon rows of crosses. How easy it is today, decades later, to people to forget the "hardest years, the darkest years".
