"Imagine" by John Lennon. I like to imagine the world having total peace and harmony, everyone knows each other, helps one another, where there'll be laughter and joy.
The sound of silence -- and I DON'T mean the song.
If I had to listen to JUST ONE song for the rest of my life, the rest of my life would be very SHORT. I'd make sure of that. I'd rather have no music at all than have to listen to just one song forever. No matter how much I love something, I don't want to have that be the only thing I have for the rest of my life. Be it music, book, food, beverage. Whatever.
Mike and the Mechanics"in the living years"........so much for us all to learn from in this excellently written song ! :-)
This is an intensely difficult question, and after much contemplation, I am going to go with American Pie, by Don McLean. But I am such a multi-faceted person with diverse musical taste, and must also add that as much as I adore American Pie, there are parts of me that would be in agony over having made that choice. The Lillith Fair-y part of me would long for Tori Amos and Sara McLachlan; the hippie in me would cry for Pink Floyd and The Beatles; the hard rocker in me would howl for some Breaking Benjamin or Stonesour or Metallica; and the more elegant and refined me would disapprovingly shake her head, mourning the loss of greats like Vivaldi. In pondering this question, however, I took into consideration just how long I had loved each song and artist/group. American Pie is a song I fell in love with during my early chidhood years upon hearing it in a babysitters car, and through the years have never gotten even the slightest bit tired of or bored with it, but rather have grown increasingly fond of
Music is memories for me...just starting to think of one has got me in a tizzy...but Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma form Puccini's Turandot brings tears to my eyes every time....and Barber's Adagio for Strings...and Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles saved me from a bad acid trip!
Here comes the sun... I have blackbird on my mind for quite some while now.
let it be - Beatles i cant believe that no one said this one, motto of my life
"If I had a Million Dollars" by the Bare Naked Ladies
henry the 8th as sang by patrick swayze in ghost!
Don't think you would stay sane for long! lol
after a while of thinking im going with the song and lyrics that are closest to me . its gona have to be red hot chilli peppers i could have lied . its also a song i enjoy playing this on the guitar . it still makes the hairs stand up on my neck .
touch choice but it would be between
beethoven - grosse fugue quartet
beethoven - 7 symphony
Schubert's - death and the maiden
but i would probably choose grosse fugue from all of them, thats true masterpiece of music ahead of its time.
Innagadavida - Iron Butterfly (the long version)
Stairway to Heaven, a classic!
Everything by Lifehouse
Red Red Wine! lol
Very difficult to answer as I love all genres of music but I believe I would have to say Bostons More Than A Feeling !
Stairway to Heaven
I love that song, too. Man, they don't write songs like that anymore.
"Amazing Grace" on bagpipes, because it always makes me cry. Then I could spend the rest of my life crying and properly mourning my loss of a variety of good music. :(
"Inside Silvia" Rick Springfield. i heard it as a child and his voice was the only adult voice i ever heard to that point that was calm and made me feel safe, in fact i have a line from it tattood on my back it says. . . .
"tho the world can rage and storm, there's still one harbor where i'm safe and warm. "
In my life by the beatles. I love that song.
