Greatest Song Ever Composed?
« on: November 29, 2004, 09:12:44 PM »
Not your favorite song, but rather what song is the greatest from a musical standpoint.

My vote goes for "A Day in the Life" by the Beatles.

Streets of Fire and Backstreets are better composed Bruce songs, in my opinion, but this is pretty subjective and Jungleland is damn good.

I agree.  Backstreets is my favorite Springsteen song.

This is a rough question without a particular genre to focus in on...I am assuming rock, but am trying to understand the "greatest from a musical standpoint" qualifier... anyway, her are some I'd nominate, from different artists/decades:

Beatles
"I am the Walrus"
"Revolution"
"Let it Be"
John Lennon
"Imagine"
Eagles
"Hotel California"
Jimi Hendrix
"Machine Gun"
Eric Clapton
"Layla"
Led Zeppelin
"Stairway to Heaven"
Pink Floyd
"Comfortably Numb"
Deep Purple
"Lazy"
Rolling Stones
"Heartbreaker"
Rush
"The Trees"

Sorry if I got off topic... I guess I can't really narrow it down!  :-\
