The type of music I like to list to is determined what kind of mood I am in. Today is a bad day so I am depressed so I am listing to music that might be slow beat and music that I might want to cry to. So only songs like "Every Rose has A Thorn " or "Do I". Sorry to be such a down I will think on it and get back to you.
"Suite Sister Mary" Queensrÿche Operation: Mindcrime a Rock/Opera
The Story in the Rock/Opera Operation: Mindcrime "The album begins with the protagonist, Nikki, in a hospital. He lies in a nearly catatonic state, unable to remember anything but snippets from his past. Suddenly, Nikki's memories come flooding back in a torrent. He remembers how, as a heroin addict and would-be political radical frustrated with contemporary society, he was manipulated into joining a supposed secret organization dedicated to revolution. At the head of this organization is a political and religious demagogue known only as Dr. X, who by manipulating Nikki through a combination of his heroin addiction and brainwashing techniques, uses Nikki as an assassin. Whenever Dr. X uses the word "mindcrime" Nikki becomes his docile puppet, a state which Dr. X uses to command Nikki to undertake any murder that the Doctor wishes. Through one of Dr. X's probable associates, a corrupt priest named Father William, Nikki is offered the services of a prostitute-turned-nun named Sister Mary. Through his friendship and growing affection toward Sister Mary, Nikki begins to question the nature of what he is doing. Dr. X notices this and, seeing a potential threat in Mary, orders Nikki to kill both her and the priest. Nikki goes to Mary's church and kills the priest, but after confronting Mary fails to comply with the command to murder her. He and Mary decided to leave the organization together, and Nikki goes to Dr. X to tell him that they are out. Dr. X, however, reminds Nikki that he is an addict, and that he is the one who can provide him with his daily fix. Nikki leaves, conflicted and returns to Mary, only to find her dead, hanging from her own rosary. He cannot cope with the loss, as well as the possibility that he himself may have killed her and not known it, and begins to succumb to insanity. The police, arriving on the scene, arrest him for Mary's murder and the murders he committed for Dr. X. He is put into a hospital, where he begins to remember what has happened." From Wikipedia
"Back In Black".. The entire album is how it was able to bounce back after losing the members greatest friend and one of the best vocalist's in Rock and roll...it proved the band could go on and be very sucessfull, yet never forget its roots with the bands frontman who passed away in 1980, the late Bonn Scott
I don't see the question as one that can be validly answered. A "best" song of all time would have to cover all bases--it would work for you in every situation, every time.
The closest I can come to identifying anything like that would be a one-word, ancient song which is actually a name for God and which we find as part and parcel of words in virtually every language on the planet. Here in the U.S. we call it "HU" or "Hu". In English, it shows up in words like "human, humor", etc., and in names like "Hubert" (meaning "bright Spirit").
Sung alone, it often helps the singer find inner balance. Sung in groups, it produces a truly amazing sound that might be described as the Ocean of Love and Mercy, sometimes simply termed the "Rolling Hu" or "The Hu Song".
It's pronounced like the name "Hugh" or the "hue" of a given color and usually sung in a drawn-out, long-as-your-breath-lasts style.
This is almost the most impossible question that I think that I have seen regarding songs that have been written over the years. There are so many songs that could come under this heading, you could just keep going on and on and everyone would be saying something different. Beautybabe
The dust cover on "Scarlet Sister Mary" is gone, and part of the page that gives so and so dates...is part missing. How can I tell if this is 1920's or 1940's? It is falling apart.got to handle with kids...
