    I know it sounds kinda cheesy, but I am interested to hear what people think about this. Esp. #2. Peace.

    1) What is your favorite song of all time. Not just the one you are currently attached to.

    2) What do you think is most widely considered to be the best song in the States.

    May This Be Love is also my favorite Jimi song. Amazing! waterfalls drippin' from his freakin' guitar!
  7. Pink Floyd - "Echoes" - Album:Meddle
    this was early pinkFloyd (pre-darkSide/moon)
    Next time you trip on Boomers or LSD put this song on max volume and hit repeat.

    ya, ecohes is a good tune.

    My favorite song is "Don't think twice, it's allright" by bob dylan

    and although I strongly disagree, I think Stairway is considered the best song by most people. At least occording to all of my radio stations.

    Almost impossible to do. Have to agree that Elton's Tiny Dancer is a pearl + 1 that's rarely played.
    A few Faves:
    In my life- Beatles
    I can't make you love me- Bonnie Raitt
    Take me in your arms- Kim Weston
    The pretender- Jackson Browne
