Thread: What is your Favorite song, besides Rock genre?

  1. #1

    What is your Favorite song, besides Rock genre?

    Suddenly I was wondering which songs I like besides Rock genre. And so I remember I used to listen to these songs and they are my favorite:
    I used to be really into Depapepe guitar songs, somehow I feel they are excellent (though it seems majority of people don't know them), my most favorite song probably Start.
    Start - Depapepe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7lUPer0fa0
    My another favorite song would be The Most Evolved by John Clarke. I've heard he usually performs streets play recently and it was fantastic.
    The Most Evolved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHU-AJTn0I8

    What's yours ?

    H'mmm.

    Does anybody really have a single, favorite song?

    If I had to pick one right now, I'd probably pick "Hasa diga eebowai," or however it's spelled, from the "Book of Mormon" soundtrack. But if you asked me in a minute or two I would probably pick something else.

    Just one song?

    Well, perhaps this could do, but just because it is the title-track of the first album I had from Wim Mertens.



    But it could be a lot of other pieces by this composer. I have 20 CD's by him and I'm pretty sure there are more to come and even then I don't have everything he made.

    I have always liked Mac The Knife. There actually have been some pretty good rock versions of this song done too.

    That's a good one. Threepenny Opera has lots of great songs. My mom took me to see it with Raul Julia as Macheath, and I was famously in it in high school along with Matthew Broderick. Ok, I wasn't famous at all, but neither was he yet.

    I grew up on the Original Broadway Cast recording of Threepenny Opera, from the Fifties - Lotte Lenya starred, and Bea Arthur had a small role in it. My parents had the record in their collection. And in some ways, it set my musical direction for life - pop music, yes, but artistically ambitious, stylistically out-of-the-box, and with a generous helping of 20th-Century harmonic practice. Does this description sound like anything you might have heard?

    "Stand By Me" from Ben E. King has enormous staying power for me.

    Schubert's Ave Maria let say by Bocelli or Pavarotti is a very powerful song.

    I don't know what the heck genre it's in, pop novelty I guess, but my favorite non-rock song at the moment is Dave Seville's "The Witchdoctor." Very clever lyrics, catchy tune, and great instrumentation.
