nice choice

As much as you will disagree with me. For me the greatest song is Estranged by Guns N'Roses.

It is nine epic minutes of grand strings, gutiar solos and powerful lyrics!

Everyone knows the greatest song of all time is Blue Monday!

That's such a hard question. For me, it would be a song that retains its power over time and a million relistenings...a song that makes you feel the way you did when you originally heard it, plus some new stuff as well...a song that grows with you. Hmm...sounds like the makings of a good long-term relationship, too.

If I had to pick just one, it would probably be "Temptation" by New Order. I remember listening to my dubbed copy on cassette while taking off on my first airplane flight, at age 15. The cute, older guy in front of me turned around and asked if I was listening to New Order. He recognized the drumbeat. :)

I recently got to dance to this song at Mondo in NYC!

I miss Mondo

the thing that was so special about Mondo was that the crowd was so NUTS for the music. you rarely see that.

i agree with freelancemama on Temptation - it just doesn't get any better than that. and that song just lives on and on.
