    What song do you never get tired of listening to?

    Back in the days before I lost my hearing, listening to music was my favorite past time. The songs of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s were playing on the radio and I loved to sing along. Now, I am not the greatest singer, just great in my own world. With my ear damage, my voice is very off key (so those who are in my company tell me!), but I still enjoy singing to songs I remember even though I can't hear the radio anymore..

    We all have one or more songs we enjoy. What songs are on your list?

    I lost part of my hearing in 1977 and the rest of it in the late 1980's. My one and only favorite song of all time is John Lennon's Imagine from 1971.
    Although I can't hear the following video, just watching it makes me sing along and I love it.

    Classical Gas, Old Time Rock and Roll, Rhapsody in Blue, most anything by CCR, Peter Gunn, The Pink Panther, most of what Henri Mancini did, Johnny B Goode, and the list goes on.

      Wow, your library of music is cool. I love Henry Mancini's music - the Pink Panther, Peter Gunn and several other themes. I'm going to hear Pink Panther in my head all afternoon. LOL

      I suspect if you set the bass right you should be able to feel Peter Gunn.

      I can feel thumping of bass, but the melody is what I can't hear. I improvise and hear songs in my head from "memory."

    " Heroes" by David Bowie and " The Passanger" by Iggy Pop both songs from about 1977

      I don't remember either of those songs, but do like David Bowie's early music.

    I never tire of hearing almost anything from the '60s and '70s. However, two that come to mind right off the bat are Imagine by John Lennon and Color My World by Chicago.

      We have similar tastes in music, Shauna.
      And that's another reason why we are good friends!

      Another one is Old Man by Neil Young. Tiny Dancer, Elton John. Oh, I could go on and on....

    Layla by Eric Clapton, Moonlight Sonata - Beethoven, and any song from the soundtrack of the movie Michael - they all make me smile and move.

      I saw (and heard) Eric Clapton perform Layla in concert when I was in England (1982/3?). I remember it as being a very long song. I've heard several shorter versions near the end of the 1980's. I thought the lyrics were inspiring. Good song smile

    i love michael jackson songs like heal the world, never gets tired of it.

      I think that Michael Jackson was an extraordinary talent, from the time he was a little boy. The song and subsequent project he collaborated on - We Are The World - was sheer genius. His music will never get old.

    I've found that songs with a chanting almost hypnotic effect make me what to listen to them over and over.  For popular or alternative music I have:

    Tourist by Radiohead
    Love My Way by the Psychedelic Furs
    Let's Stay Together by Al Green

      RachaelOhalloranposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      The only chanting type song I can remember from my hearing days is "Give Peace A Chance" by the Beatles. I don't recall the Al Green song you mentioned nor do I know the other two bands. Thx for answering smile

    Nights in White Satin by the Moody Blues is the first song that comes to mind. That song will never be too old for me. I was 12 years old the first time I hear it. 39 years later and I still love it!

      That would be mine too.  I love the poem at the end.

    Basiclly all of them if they are from the types of music which I listen to. There are a few which I get tired of but I do not have a list of them.

      Umm, let me think, quickly the Beach Boys songs come to mind.

      Excellent choice! Listening to almost anything by the Beach Boys can take you on a memory vacation. smile

    Rock and disco, they are not only rowdy but produce rowdy fruits.

    1. RachaelOhalloran profile image87
      RachaelOhalloranposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Love Rock! But I always associated Disco with teenagers. It was all the craze in the 70's and early 80's and my kids enjoyed it. It was way after my teen years. Donna Summer was the only one I liked, so sad she is gone now. TY for reply smile
