I would have to say Amazing Grace by John Newton. I think it's the best song of all time because it has universally touched so many people over hundreds of years. It will no doubt still be sung a century from now when today's pop music is forgotten.
Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd .......Not one but two amazing guitar solos and a wonderful chorus with a great combination of singing from Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour. Beautifully written and peformed with lush orchestral backing that builds up the verses to the chorus
there are so many great choices on this thread.. I think it's too hard to pick the greatest song of all time.. Somewhere Over the Rainbow would be one of the tops for it's message. it's been covered by so many artists..
One of my favorite profs died suddenly of a heart attack during my last year at college and for a week afterward the campus rang with Ode To Joy being blasted from dorm room speakers by myself and other students who loved him. It was his favorite song, and I really couldn't imagine a more beautiful tribute to his life.
I hear that, played at sufficient volume, it also cures colds.
That's always like the 'best band' or 'best guitarist' argument, truth is, there is no 'greatest' as it's just down to opinion so if I were made to make a decision I'd go with Shangri-la by the Kinks - as great as any other 60s song. However I certainly didn't grow up in the sixties at all
There are so many great songs ... I can't decide which is the greatest. One great one that I'm listening to at the moment is 'Evergreen', written by Barbra Streisand for the 1976 re-make of the movie 'A Star is Born'.
Granchestar Meadows by Pink Floyd. If you didn't hear the song yet, click the link and experience listening the best song ever. I'll request to listen this song alone and best to hear this while it's dawn.
Bridge over troubled water (Simon & Garfunkle) or maybe You got a friend (James Taylor) Well, though I think our fellows above have chosen very, very good songs I like very much, these ones I point out are songs of true love. These songs express the core of human nature, they are universal.
I'm doing some research on a specific songwriter/producer who has written/co-written many Top 40 hits for top performers. Out of these 5 songs, which one is your favorite? These were/are hugely successful songs....
