I was listening to the radio this morning, and, what i thought was, a very stupid question was asked by the radio presenter... 'OK people of Dubai, cann you phone / txt in and tell us what you think the best song ever written is?'
Well, fairy snuff, its great to see what other people's opinions are etc, but did they not think that this could lead to.. radio violence... if there is such a thing? About 10 minutes later, sure enough, there was an english block trying to convince an american woman that a football anthem was better than a... James Dean song i think?
This then got me thinking, what does actually make up the best song in the world? - Well written, structured, intelectual lyrics? A catchy tune perhaps? doo doo do do do doo doo dooooo... possibly a chord sequence to remember....
Turns out the most voted for song was in fact, John Lennon's 'Imagine'. - Yes very good song
But this made me want to ask everyone on website's like this, where the real music fans are.... So, people... WHAT IS THE GREATEST SONG IN THE WORLD AND WHY!?
please answer the question by commenting.... or just comment
and by the way, stuck on a few? - STICK EM' ALL DOON!!!!
A little obscure I know but I think this song has a fantastic mix of everything, soft to hard with a catchy tune, profound lyrics and a chill inducing build up about 2/3rds of the way through which is utterly key. Memorable and easy to relate to.
