Everybody has one song that is there favorite. One song that no matter what the situation will make them feel better. Sometimes the song is good, sometimes it is bad, sometimes embarrassing, but it's always interesting.

Mine is Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk". I have no idea why this is my favorite song, but there are multiple home videos of me running around the living room, still in diapers, banging a wooden spoon on a metal pot to that beat.

This may or may not be responsible for my love affair with the drums.

But anyways, what is your favorite song of all time?

Mine is "If She Wants Me" by Belle and Sebastian. I really cannot get over group harmonies and Stuart Murdoch's faux-falsetto.

Built to Spill - Else



Pink Floyd- Brain Damage

Pea i saw Built to Spill for the first time last month and it was fucking awesome. Crazy ass guitar skills. Have they always been killing it like that?

Fuck yeah. BTS is an incredible live band, and the way they build their sets you just know they have love and respect for their fans.

It's 'Brain Damage/Eclipse' for me, too. That shit does things to me.

Built to Spill is awesome live. But I thought that their 25 minute jam session went on for a little too long when I saw them.

But as for my favorite song, this one is always a toughie for me since I have so many favorites.

But I guess I'll go with Lazarus by Porcupine Tree since it's my most listened to song according to Last.fm

Just saw 'em a couple of months ago and they even make songs from the new album sound good live.

I was also about to put "Distopian Dream Girl" as my favorite song of all time, but I feel I need to put more thought into this, with it being favorite song EVER and all.

I love it when they do material off of 'There's Nothing Wrong With Love'. For my money, that album is 100x better than any other BTS record.

Oh fuck yes. That album would easily be on my top 10 albums of all time if I were to make one.

"Look for the record with MEEEEE on the cover!" Gets me every time.

My favorite is Kid A (Radiohead)

Here's a really spectacular live version:

My favorite BTS song would have to be stab. Ever since i saw it in a skate video when i was in 7th grade. Now that i think about it that video also had "get by" by Talib Kweli. That skate video might have been my good music revolution

Mine is a three-way tie between a few 80s songs.

Fascination Street - The Cure
Synchronicity II - The Police
Don't Change - INXS

Also: 'Tusk' is an incredible song (and I FUCKING HATE Fleetwood Mac). If I didn't take myself so seriously, that'd probably be my favorite song too.

I've been deliberating here. I hate to do a tie, because that's bullshit...but I will.

The Smiths - Half a Person (Makes me want to cry everytime I hear it
The Cure - Boys Don't Cry
Radiohead - Let Down

and some more contemporary songs that haven't had a short lifetime to marinate, but I love all the same:

chune-yards - Fiya
Girls - Lust for Life
