“Monday, Monday… da-da, da-duh-dum-dum…” Yeah, I’m singing the Mamas and the Papas this morning. Don’t remember who they were? Well, maybe I just like to listen to the oldies station!

Anyways, music is on my mind, so I have a question:

In your opinion, what is the best piece of music ever written?

    In the Hall of the Mountain King, by Greig. This is a just barely over Bolero by Ravel.

    I have 3, all sung by Garth Brooks. The Dance, Cowboys and Angels, The Change…

    There are a lot that I love, but those 3 just speak to my heart.

    As much as I love heavy metal, the most beautiful music I’ve ever listened to is Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, in particular, The Ode to Joy. I feel uplifted every time I hear it.

    So many wonderful choices here! I definitely have to listen to In the Hall of the Mountain King, Stacy. And dd, you know I’m a huge fan of U2 as well. And I heard Free Bird during the band’s final concert tour before the crash. It was one of those “moments”.

    I Would Do Anything For Love by Meatloaf or Coming to America by Neil Diamond.

    Great question! I’m am completely torn between Say Goodbye by Dave Matthews Band and Kashmir by Led Zeppelin. But Dave wins with me, every time.

    Beach Boys…any and all music! There was never a time that one of their songs didn’t make me feel better and the day seem lighter! Barbara Ann is my all time fave! 😛

    In my opinion there is no ‘best music ever’ but these are among my favourite songs:-

    March of Cambreadth and Shadow Lover by Heather Alexander Take a Message to Mary and Ebony Eyes by The Everly Brothers
    We Didn’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel
    Lemon Tree by Peter, Paul and Mary

    Del, The Ode to Joy is the final movement of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. (Who could ever forget the Beatle’s movie “Help!” and Famous Roger from the Famous London Zoo?) Yes, I do remember the Mamas and Papas

    I’m definitely a fan of Grieg, but I prefer Wedding Day at Troldhaugen.

    But for my best, most favorite I think I’m going to have to say Leonard Bernstein’s Mass (with additional lyrics by Steven Schwartz & Paul Simon), written for the dedication of the Kennedy Center. The music is incredible and the whole thing speaks volumes.

    Ooops! The 5th was the Napoleonic thing he ended up hating. The 9th was his last and greatest. Thanks for the correction.

    I’ve always liked “I want to hold your hand” by the Beatles. I think it’s a sweet song.

    Hmm, many but Brahms “Nanie”, Bolero, Breathing Below Surface, Fireflies, Ode to Joy – commenter was right, it never fails to make you feel good, and some other feel goods, almost all on Paul Simon’s Graceland CD.

    American Pie by Don McLean. I have way too many cd’s with this song on them. It’s a sickness with me. I have some other favorites, but this one is my absolute favorite.

    I truely love all types of music, right now the song that is speaking to me is Miranda Lambarts Over You!! But I also believe the rock from the 80’s will rule always, Def Leppard especially!!

    I’m a huge fan of MOZART. His music brings me to tears with it’s beauty. Yes, I love classical music. It’s timeless.
