In my opinion, there may be too many to name especially when there are different reasons why the songs are as awesome as they are. It can be the the singing delivery that make the songs the stand outs that they are. What the songs are about is also a big thing. The instrument aspect is another thing, in other words, how the song is musically delivered is another thing that makes people sit up and pay more attention.

God bless you always!!!

P.S. The way that things are going in your life is another thing that make certain songs mean whatever it is that they mean to you as well. Smile Smile Smile

Exactly. Just as a quick example, London Calling and Star√°lfur are both perfect songs in my book, but for opposite reasons. I think it would be interesting to talk about the greatest songs by certain artists. But of all time? I don't see the point.

I like:

Spirit In The Sky - Norman Greenbaum
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix Experience
At Last - Etta James

In terms of classical I like:

The Lark Ascending - Vaughan Williams
Rhapsody On A Theme by Paganini - Rachmaninov
Requiem - Mozart (Especially Lachrimosa)
Adagio For Strings - Samuel Barber
Aranjuez - Rodrigo

To separate it by artist would include a lot of options. In my opinion, it should be a song that takes different directions over an extended period of time, such as... duh, Time, or Paranoid Android, Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway to Heaven, Master of Puppets, Voodoo Chile, Through Silver in Blood, Come Sail Away, The End, Won't Get Fooled Again, to name a few in the rock vein. It's my most experienced vein.

I repeat, this is my opinion of what the song should be. I am by no means being... "objective." It could easily be a jazz or hip hop song I've never heard. HOVA's definitely the finest hip hop song I know, but I don't think it's got a top ten spot.

Why can't a song that's 3 minutes be just as great as a song that's 7?

probably the easiest one to argue from my vantage point (given my own feelings/critical consensus), with the others i'd consider being wuthering heights, peach plum pear, and video games

It's only my opinion. I'm as drawn to ambition as I am to perfection. My favorite songs by specific bands have typically been the ones told by chapters, not like "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" but something that takes multiple emotions and maintains flawless consistency. "Bohemian Rhapsody" has happy moments, angry moments sad ones and humorous ones.

I guess my pic would be Bohemian Rhapsody. I'll still be thinking when I have the time.
