Originally the final day of this challenge was going to be my favourite song, and the second last day was going to be my favourite album. But it’s occurred to me recently that I value albums as a whole a lot more than I do single songs, so I thought I’d swap them around as I feel my favourite album is a much more significant question (to me at least) than my favourite song.
My favourite song is of course hard to decide. I have a number of favourites, such as Under The Bridge by RHCP, and Distant Sun by Crowded House (actually, about half of their songs). It’s not a song by The Beatles because they have too many songs I love to ever possibly decide.
But if I had to nail it down to just one song, I think it would be “Since I’ve Been Loving You” by Led Zeppelin. Why this song? Because, more than any other song by them, I feel this one balances out all the members of the band perfectly – Plant, Page, Jones and Bonham all come together to create one of the sexiest, bluesiest (it’s totally a word), most awesome rock songs of all time. All four often spoke of how feeling music is just as important as thinking it, and I think when you listen to this song in it’s entirety you can see why.
What’s your favourite song of all time?
