Favourite song

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hello,
I'm bored at work. Try this if you want (Dirty Harry just ignore if you'd rather):
What is your favourite song and why?
Here's mine if anyone's interested:
Moby-morcheaba. I love this track because it is mellow and reminds me of the best bits of summer, feeling free and inspired. And it is quite different to most of the tracks out there at the moment.
Nicola.

    I love that Aerosmith song from Armageddon. How can such a cool song come from such a shitty film?

    top three songs of all time are as follows:
    NINE INCH NAILS - HEAD LIKE A HOLE
    KILLER - ADAMSKI
    SUPPERS READY - GENESIS (listen to it all 24 minutes, what a great story)

    while we are on top threes, how about top three books?

    LORD OF THE RINGS
    AMERICAN PSYCHO
    THE CROW ROAD

    any takers?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    American Psycho was a very good book, the ending was a little weird, and generally a very gruesome book, but good. I'm now reading a book called Asylums by Ervin Goffman, really interesting so far.

    At the moment I am really into Offspring with their album Americana. I think this is one of the best albums ever written-every song on it is great! (which, lets face it, is quite rare)
    Foo Fighter's Learn to fly was sweet and the video was hella funny
    Lastly either Cypress Hill or Moby get my vote. If I wanna relax I listen to moby's Natural Blue's or Woman and if I wanna jam I listen to Cypress Hill (you can't get the best of me is great)
    Anyone know any similar kool rock bands (not obvious ones like Nirvana or stuff like that cos I already know) would be appreciated adn I will run out and buy them straight away
    Cheers

    if you want to try some good stuff that kinda the same, try the following:
    Mudhoney; one of the least known of the grunge movement but one of the best
    Janes addiction; so cool they burn!!
    red hot Chilli Peppers; see why the all saints crucified under the brdge, and why give it away is one of the best songs of all time.
    Sonic youth; great lyrics, really angry music
    Rage Against the machine; forget limp bizkit et al, this is where the rock rap crossover is the best, try their first album, it rocks!!
    Pearl Jam; ten and VS are their best albums, they got up their own arses after that
    Mother Love Bone; a band sadly killed off by their lead singer committing suicide. a big influence on nirvana
    Killing Joke, Cop shhot cop, Skinny Puppy, minisry; good hard industrial music; showed marylin Manosn what to do.
    try these, you should find something youll like, or if you want to try a bit of each, i reccomed the soundtracks to Singles, Lost higway, Judgment Day and Spawn; theyll givce you a good idea.
    anybody disagree?
    ( notice all the stuff comes fromt ehearly 90's? the best itme for music ever?)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    what about IRIS by the goo goo dolls? that's my favourite song ever. it's from the film city of angels if you can't recognise it.
    other possibilities:
    1.HIGH by feeder
    2.BILLY DAVEYS DAUGHTER by the phonics
    3.BORN A GIRL by the manics.
    4.LA TRISTESSE DUERRA by the manics.
    5.WILLOW by JJ72.
    but IRIS is still better. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    "Sing When We're Fishing" by the Grimsby Town FC fans

    It goes along the lines of...

    "We only sing when we're fishing
    Sing when we're fiiiishing
    We only sing when we're fishing
    SING WHEN WE'RE FISHING!!!
    We only...etc, etc etc"

    FANTASTIC, NUMBER ONE MATERIAL

    Hi

    My favourite song changes all the time. But there is one that particularly gets me going and that has to be "Phenomenon" by LL Cool J. If there's anyone out there who loves LL or action movies - e-me at my address. Anyone's welcome.

    I hope you are referring to the Chilli's Version not some scabby cover by All Saints.

    I must also add to Strong Enough Unforgivable Sinner by Lene Marlin as a favourite, for such a young person, she writes about a lot of pain (but I guess it's raking the money in can afford the therapy... :P lol)

    Cheers All

    Yes LUKA, I do mean the Red Hot Chili peppers version! Allsaints just ruined an excellent song!!!

    I want the RHCP version of Under the bridge to be played at my funeral he he


    Shyness has a strange element of narcissism, a belief that how we look, how we perform, is truly important to other people
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Mine would have to be Michelle Shocked's My Little Sister. Or Gladewater

    Unless it was something by Joan Armatrading Drop the Pilot, or Love and Affection, or even Call Me Names.

    Steeleye Span with Black Freighter, Alison Gross, Sails of Silver (& half a dozen more) keep coming back for attention

    If I was feeling nostalgic, I'd go with Tanita Tikaram's Twist in My Sobriety

    Miranda Sex Garden - Iris

    I quite enjoyed Slim Shady by Eminem

    Jesus' Blood `by' Tom Watts is just the thing when you're feeling really down.

    If Shout! ever comes on when I'm driving make sure you've got your seatbelt on and all your packages are secure.

    All time fave? Can't be done.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I would say...
    1.the Bloodhound gang-inevitable great white dope
    2.Tbgh-Kiss me where it smells funny
    3.Less than Jake-All my best friends are metalheads.
    4.Goldfinger-99 red balloons
    5.Greenday-When I come around
    6.Blink 182-Dammit
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Deftones-white pony-album that is.
    papa roach-last resort is wicked.
    i love offsprings new album-conspiracy of one. and i bet redman was paid like a million dollars just for saying, "original prankster"
    Cypress hill rock-rap superstar and cant get the best of me.

    limp bizkit-rollin,remix is better i think.
    rage against the machine, first album though.
    Still dre-great song i think.
    bloodhound gang-there latest album is good.
    these are a few of my fav songs, if anyone else shares my interest, tell me of some more, Nu-metal for instance, rap metal, whatever.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
