If you could only listen to 3 songs from now till eternity. Which 3 would you pick?
I really love music. I listen to it constantly and my world would be much emptier without it. If you were suddenly faced with the decision to choose only 3 songs to last you from now till eternity. Which 3 would you pick and why?
Fairweather Friends by Queens of the Stone Age. Apart from the outstanding drumming performance clear from the start, I can't get over Josh Homme's lyrics. This guy gets people who feel like they're alone. The music he writes helps the listener know that they're not alone in whatever they're going through--specifically this song; a sad one about people who leave when life gets rough.
Second, I'd probably keep Groove Holmes by Beastie Boys. It's not the greatest song ever written, but I put it on in my car a few years ago and fell in love with the entire album. I have countless memories, both early mornings and late nights, listening to this song on road trips with my friends on the highways of New England. Fun stuff.
Last, I couldn't live without Zeppelin. I don't care how I go, as long as someone's blasting Moby Dick in a car nearby. Even if that person's the one who hits me, they're still enjoying the unmatched solos of John Bonham.
"Teenage Lobotomy" - the Ramones
"Let There Be Rock" - AC/DC
"Punk and Belligerent" - Warrior Soul
Samuel Barber - "Adagio for Strings" (You have probably heard this in the movie, Platoon".
Pink Floyd - "Wish You Were Here".
Phil Collins - "In the Air Tonight".
"Hallelujah" Leonard Cohen
"Blue Bayou," Linda Ronstadt's
"Perhaps Love," John Denver and Placido Domingo.
But I think I'd need 3 or 5 or 20 more
1."Ich Gehör Nur Mir" from Michael Kunze and Sylvester Levay's musical "Elisabeth"
2. "Bevo al Tuo Fresco Sorriso", quartet from Puccini's opera "La Rondine"
3. "Ancient Pines" by Loreena McKennitt
The first is a song about independence and hope, and it has sort of been my "pep-talk" music for a long time. The second is simply one of the most beautiful melodies I have ever heard. The third is so ethereal that it numbs my mind, dulls my sense of stress, and makes me feel like everything is going to be alright.
LastRoseOfSummer2 your answer was written beautifully. It is a genre I don't listen to but your words would sell it to anyone! Thank you.
Last Rose, i feel we're singing from the same hymn sheet. I feel you would love 'Von Himmel Hoch, da Komm Ich her' sung by Leontyne Price. from her 'Christmas Songs' album. I find it hard to even breathe when I hear her singing this.
My tears flow
When you say "song", I am taking the bit between my teeth, believing (whether correctly or incorrectly) that "song" can include any amount of versions or "covers of that song. So one of my three would be 'Love for Sale' of which there must be hundreds of versions, the other would, perhaps, be 'It Might As Well Be Spring' which has been sung and recorded so many, many times, and the Third is a toss up between my three favourite "classical" - or should I say, "serious" works,
1. The Verdi Requiem
2. Verdi's 'Don Carlos' or 'Don Carlos' - it has been recorded in both the original French and the Italian version.(See where I'm going here?)
3. Rossini's 'Semiramide'.
OK, so shoot me down in flames.
LRS, TW, You two are probably great at Math, right? I also heard that listening to classical music actually reverses memory loss in older people!
Well, actually I don't know if I'm great at Math. I've always hated it so much I've never put any effort into it lol!
I would never shoot anyone down in flames
You have full poetic licence to interpret the question as you wish. Song covers would give the opportunity for more choice.
Thank you very much Twilight Lawns for answering.
1. Redemption Song - Bob Marley
2. Ghetto Gospel - Tupac Shakur
3. Get Up Stand up - Bob Marley
Those are the 3 I would pick "right now". In a month I could have a different opinion though haha. But those songs are timeless, I listen to them all the time, never grow sick of em.
