I've always loved her voice. I have pretty much all her albums and all of her live concert DVDs save one. Her version of O Mio Babbino Caro is flawless.

The song is Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro). She does a stunning solo version on her "Classics" album.

Bocelli is so inspiring, though. Born blind, he has to memorize the songs without ever seeing them. He's brilliant.

Listen to his solo rendition (same tape). Simply stunning (and ALL in Italian, as it was originally).

Maybe the live version of Mountain Jam by Allman Bros Band because it's easily 45 minutes long so it'd be harder for it to get redundant.

"I Touch Myself"

no way I could pick just one. Even if I picked the greatest song ever written, heard enough times I'd hate it.

I heard Hotel California right after Stairway on one of the radios here in the office yesterday and I thought to myself how if I never hear either again, that would be quite alright. And they're both awesome songs.

I'd be able to pick an album, but not a song.

Poems, Prayers and Promises by John Denver.

If I was going to go with a John Denver song I would have picked "Perhaps Love".

There are just so many options... it really is impossible to pick just one song (at least for me).

I have been in a Hoagy Carmichael mood lately... but it's too late, I've already picked. Besides, you can never go wrong with Beethoven.

O_o I didn't even *think* of classical music ('cause admittedly I don't listen to a lot of it) -- but I think I'll amend mine and say Brahms's Requiem, which is a little over an hour long and just really bowls me over every time. We did it in chorus sophomore year of college and it's one of those pieces that's almost a spiritual experience every time I hear it.

I think Hell is no other people...complete alone-ness lost in one's ego.

Just sayin...Also:


This play, an example of expert craftmanship so organized that the audience learns very slowly the facts concerning the three characters, is Sartre's indictment of the social comedy and the false role that each man plays in it. The most famous utterance in the play, made by Garcin, when he says that hell is other people, l'enfer, c'est les autres, is, in the briefest form possible, Sartre's definition of man's fundamental sin. When the picture a man has of himself is provided by those who see him, in the distorted image of himself that they give back to him, he has rejected what the philosopher has called reality. He has, moreover, rejected the possibility of projecting himself into his future and existing in the fullest sense. In social situations we play a part that is not ourself. If we passively become that part, we are thereby avoiding the important decisions and choices by which personality should be formed.

When we were little we refused to listen to bands like Poison and Ratt... So we bought all rap... Then we caught Seasons in the Abyss on the Headbangers Ball the one night...

I don't know how I missed this originally... Phil Ochs! Wow, I didn't think there was any Phil Ochs' fans left? Good for you.

I remember reading that Sean Penn intended to make a movie about Phil Ochs' life. I think Penn would be perfect for the role (albeit a little too old). I wonder what's happening with that. Phil Ochs... that brought back a lot of memories. I'll have to hunt through my old vinyl album collection and play my "Phil Ochs in Concert" album. I haven't thought about him in a long,long time.

Those were the days.

And you knew who you were then,
Girls were girls and men were men,

Like Herbert Hoover again.

Everybody pulled his weight.
Gee our old LaSalle ran great.

This is a hard topic - I guess "Black" by Pearl Jam, but there's probably a good 20 songs I could listen to forever without going nuts.OK that was going to be my choice.. but I'll try and be unique.

Classical is probably the way to go if you don't want to be insane, but I'm ok with going nuts.

So.. either "Monkey Gone to Heaven" by the Pixies or anything off of Springsteen's "Nebraska"

He isnt the only one with irrational love for Big Rube. I am sure they are a few more like me, like the guy who just came out of a coma and thinks its still 1989.

Northern Soul by The Verve. It rocks but you can dance to it and it's kind of pissed off which I would be if I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life.

Funny that you mention that song in this thread.......after a bad breakup a few years ago I listened to 'On Your Own' from the Northern Soul album non-stop on repeat for a few days straight.....turns out it wouldn't be my 'one song' since I can't stand it now, and thats after just three days of hearing nothing but that song....still a great, and under-rated album though

My one song would have to be Dylan, probably 'Tangled up in Blue'

I don't know how I missed this originally... Phil Ochs! Wow, I didn't think there was any Phil Ochs' fans left? Good for you.

I remember reading that Sean Penn intended to make a movie about Phil Ochs' life. I think Penn would be perfect for the role (albeit a little too old). I wonder what's happening with that. Phil Ochs... that brought back a lot of memories. I'll have to hunt through my old vinyl album collection and play my "Phil Ochs in Concert" album. I haven't thought about him in a long,long time. Thanks for reminding me.
Heh, ironically, it was a phase I went through last year (since I obviously was born a couple decades too late actually to have experienced it when it came out), so I don't know if you could say I'm one of the fans "left", lol. Was so disillusioned after the election, the way it divided the country, and the war and the administration (and in turn the opponents of the administration, who weren't much better) -- it was just the right music for the right time. Substitute "Iraq" for "Vietnam" and "W" for "LBJ" and it's all suddenly relevant. "Crucifixion", especially, is one of those songs I can listen to a zillion times and never get tired of -- his lyrics are just some of the most amazing I've ever heard; floored me the first time I heard it and continues to do so even the fifty thousandth time.

I listen to that song LOUD and it just drains all of the stress and tensions of everyday life right out of my body... total relaxation when it's finished. I often crank it up on my way to the golf course. :D

I can't possibly maen this because I love music way too much but I'd be alright listening to "Rock With You" by Michael Jackson. It's from the "Off the Wall" album and is my favorite somg by him. It's bad ass. Maybe even "How Sweet It Is" by James Taylor.....after awhile I get sick of rock and hip-hop. :D

Since I'm a HUGE Rush fan... Xanadu!

Big Rush fan here too (well, their old stuff anyway). Geddy's on my Top 10 List of People I'd Like to Have a Beer and Watch a Ballgame With...but even a great, obscure Rush song (maybe something off of Caress of Steel?) would still drive me to insanity if played over and over again.

Geddy is a big baseball fan too! Rush is the one of two groups I've ever seen in concert. We used to sit front and center in the Garden, Meadowlands and Nassau Colesium every year they would come into the area. We snuck a camera in once and took some awesome pictures of Geddy and Neil. And yeah, you're right, their newer stuff doesn't appeal to me as much... But I still buy the albums!
