Great memories spent with the Stand By Me OST... this was fun too.

Ask me today and I will say The Sign by Ace of Base,  ask me tomorrow and perhaps I'll say 4 Seasons by Boyz II Men, asked me the day after tomorrow and I will say Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. Too many songs man.

Some song by Britney. Which one exactly depends on my mood. =P

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.

I'd probably say Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, just because of how grandiose it is.

When I saw the thread title, Bohemian Rhapsody was the first thing to come to mind -- so not surprising in a way to see it as the OP pick, too. It has such an epic sweep to go along with the virtuosity of Queen and Mercury's irreplaceable voice.                             

I have always thought that Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the most overrated songs of all time.  I agree that it is grandiose. But, personally, I think it is terrible.  

The same goes for Queen in general.  I think they pretty much suck.  Lyrically, they're basically a joke band, and the music fits that bill as well.

You wouldn't be really lying - as I said, although OP was not very specific, his own choice kinda set the tone - at least that's how I look at it, I'd be surprised if he really thinks that's actually the best piece of music of ALL time.

I wasn't very specific on purpose, I wanted to see how differently people interpreted the word "greatest". I don't necessarily think that Bohemian Rhapsody is the best piece of music of all time. I honestly would not be able to tell you what my favourite song of all time is if you asked me. But I do think it's the greatest, in one sense of the word.

Well, my bad then. I assumed you thought of more modern rock/pop stuff since, if it's really of all time, then (whether one likes classical music or not) it's pretty much one sided affair given that hardly anything can match those masterpieces from the past.

As a rock n roll song, it is Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen) or Breath/Time (Pink Floyd)
But my personal favorite is Trains (Porcupine Tree)

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).
