    • it is recommended that you choose only one song, but please keep it to a maximum of three.
      give a short description of the song: year; why it's your favorite; etc;

    This is this song that I usually choose when I have to choose just one. 1994, Meet You There by Mother May I.

    Ohhh that's soooo hard to decide - My taste in music keeps changing

    Currently, I'm stuck on TWO favorites and can't decide.
    If I hear them being played on Radio I always turn up the volume to listen - so despite you saying ONLY ONE , I'm having 2

    Gia Farrell - 'Hit Me Up' -
    Heard it on 'Happy Feet soundtrack CD' - saw film & liked it (film that is) - the music is so upbeat, I use to like watching tap dancing (never could do it though) so perhaps that's another reason
    Can't embed suitable Youtube so here's a link instead
    Pussycat Dolls - Jai ho!!'
    Heard a clip in the Children in need video & it just caught my attention - so looked up the original
    Not too sure why I like it - Fast Upbeat again ? also the 'bollywood' feel to it perhaps ? (Never seen the film though)
    Embeded Youtube Video

    BTW - Your Embeded Youtube don't work

    Sorry I can't choose one so gonna have to put two [​IMG]

    Metallica - Dyers Eve

    One of my favourite songs of all time, by my favourite band. Sometimes I like to listen to this because I feel I can relate to the lyrics. Yes that may sound depressing, but very true for me.




    Slipknot - Snuff

    I'm not usually a Slipknot fan, but I love the lyrics and meaning behind this song.



    EDIT: Thanks Llama Riot

    2. Click the [​IMG] button on the tool bar.

    3. Delete the rest of the url.The end result should look like this:

    Song: All Star
    Artist: Smash Mouth
    Release Date: May 4, 1999

    Reason: I've heard this song quite a lot over the years and it was released at a time when I enjoyed being a kid. I love this style of music and it always seems to bring me back to those carefree times.

    Sorry, but I just had to post 3! I'm a Gleek, so I'm posting these:

    Glee Cast- Halo/Walking on Sunshine (Originally by Beyonce and Katrina and the Waves) I just love the energy and the rhythm. They made Halo a lot more energetic and combined it with Walking on Sunshine. It was all so sunhine-y and optimistic.

    Glee Cast- Somebody to Love (Originally by Queen) I just love how they made it so different yet so good. It's amazing. It's nearly as good as Queen's.

    Glee Cast- Don't Stop Believin' (Originally by Journey) I never liked Arnel Pineda's original version and vocals. I like this one 3 times better.

    Well, when it comes to music favourites, I find it hard to decide on only one track. So I prefer one fr every genre I listen to.

    But my all time favourites have to be a Hard Rock classic by Led Zeppelin and a genius New Prog number by Muse
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    But my present favourite track:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    No. Arnel Pineda is in no way the original singer. The original singer is the great Steve Perry, who ,IMO, is a much better vocalist.(And also the guy who Arnel Pineda's vocal skills is emulating)

    Oooh it's hard to choose only one track but I can at least list my current top three as it varies from time to time...these are also in no order of preference:

    Porcelain and the Tramps-"Neighbor"
    ~`Industrial-ish. Great song to just rock out to.

    Diablo Swing Orchestra-"Bedlam Sticks"
    ~`Metal/Swing/Avant Garde. This song and this band are just awesome. Completely fucked up and completely awesome. Very hard to describe but I can't get this song out of my head. Definitely one of the best from this band.

    Ayria-"Blue Alice"
    ~`Hard to describe I'm not sure what genre it falls into really, but this song is a fucked up version of Alice in Wonderland [​IMG] Also very catchy.

    Right now I would have to say my favorite song to listen to is
    Muse - Uprising


    The instrumentals, vocals, and lyrics are all great.

    My second favorite at this time (and always will be high on my list) is
    Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin'

    It has great lyrics that are timeless.
