Take the challenge...

Recommended Posts

Was at a party with some childhood friends and as the night progressed and the topic turned to music (as I knew it would as we just saw the Tom Keifer show), one of my buddies asked me to pick my all time favorite song. Bit of a dick move I thought since he knows how vast my cd collection is, lol. But he demanded one right there on the spot with no wiggle room. A couple minutes in I settled on Warrant's Stronger Now which surprised me as much as it did them.

 

Name your all time favorite song off the top of your head without perusing your entire music vault.

 

Virtually impossible, I know, but man up and crown a greatest of all time. No partial lists, no top 3, 5, 10 etc. and no genre specific favorites.

 

Don't over,over,over think it. One song and one song period!!

 

Good luck.

Easy.........

 

Crown of Thorns - Dying For Love

 

[utter perfection...intro/riff/verse/chorus/solo/outro....all 10/10, also the lyrics and meaning of the song is just what I like]

It's actually impossible. I could give you some favourite songs, but I've never been able to narrow it down to one. Simply impossible.

My pick is GNR 'November Rain', the piano, vocal, guitar solo, and everything, it's just pure magic !

Analyzing each and every cd in your musical library to narrow it down to that one definitive song you would be required to listen to 24/7 for eternity would melt your mind. That sounds impossible, yea. And you could expect your current favorite to change over time as you are exposed to new artists, songs, genres etc but if someone called you out on the spot, what would you tell them right then and there without dodging the question entirely? After all, how many times in your life are you given a pass?

But I couldn't even decide if my favourite song was Rock, Soul, R&B, or Pop. It's that difficult. Ha!

This might be the Hardline tune I've listened to the most. I always thought it was the absolute best closing track.

Nice one! I was going to go with Ain't Talkin' Bout Love, but went with a Dokken tune.

Some great choices here.

Stronger Now would be in my top 5, but for a long long time this has been my favorite song...

    • Bonfire had dropped off my radar the past decade (someone mentioned an album a year!!!).   This samples I've heard on the forth coming album have drawn my attention once again and hopefully, this is a refreshing new face for the band's music.    Definitely going to grab a copy of the new one  
    • For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.
    • these guys show that you can still make an enjoyable song with generic, borderline cheesy lyrics if the other elements are there
    • Wow....thanks for sharing Tony.   Tim was definitely one of the great guys....I can remember when I was active selling on E Bay, Tim would always be talking to me about different titles and, of course, we traded many times as well    I always had Tim pictured as a very gentle soul.....So sorry to hear of his passing from this awful virus in the world....
    • I am one of those who prefer their style on Knock You Down and Sultans over the direction they've gone in with the last few albums.  I thought the initial promo tracks for this one sounded solid so I gave the album a spin.  Not bad, but at the end of the day none of the tracks really grabbed me like those earlier releases.   
    • I liked the first two promo tracks for the new album, but this one not so much.  And as Geoff mentioned, the video clip itself is pretty bad
    • I don't have one favorite film but there are a few that I rewatch on a regular basis.... Die Hard (first 3 flicks) Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them) Home Alone (first 2) Predator Those are the ones that immediately come to mind but there are others....
    • Canada still hasn't hit the apex yet, although they are saying we should hit it over the next few weeks... I expect we will be staying at home for another 6 months at least...I think we will be dealing with this virus until there is a working Vaccine in place which will be until at least Spring 2021 maybe even Summer 2021...a lot of numbers are being thrown around where we could have as many as 25000 deaths before it is done.....we still aren't testing enough to get a real understanding of the spread.....the economy will truly be screwed for years to come...one good thing to come out of this is that Canada will not have to depend on other countries for health care equipment after this virus as we will make sure that we make our own equipment instead of outsourcing it... latest numbers.... Total: 12,954 (18 presumptive, 12,936 confirmed including 214 deaths, 2,502 resolved)
    • I hope you and your wife are doing well.  Those are difficult enough jobs, but I can only imagine what you both are going through during a time like this.   I anticipate this will remain a major concern here in the U.S. at least through the summer.  In areas hardest hit it really overwhelms the hospitals.  The economy was overall in good shape, but we've already seen lots of furloughs and layoffs.  The federal government has unfortunately been playing catch up through most of this and has had to re-evaluate their assessments and action plans often.  Despite warnings for years from health officials, it seems like both the current and last Presidential administration failed to keep a proper inventory of the necessary ppe and emergency medical supplies. The state and local governments have had to manage much of this on their own initially, and all responded differently.  As such some areas of the country may be better off than others by June/July.  While other states will likely have ramifications for months beyond that.  It astonishes me to see people not taking the recommended precautions seriously while others hoarded essentials early on leading to panic buying and stores struggling to keep some items in stock.  I am grateful my family is well and I remain employed, working from home now.  I check in regularly with my parents, mother-in-law and a few, older neighbors. I try to remain calm so my family feels safe. But to add to my general concerns, I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer last October.  It's a manageable disease with regular monitoring and treatment, but I am in the high risk category, so my stress level is at a maximum.
