View Full Version : That song that just never gets old?
30th Jun 2012, 05:19 PM
For me, it's "So What" by p!nk. I first heard it when I was in 3rd grade, and I haven't gotten sick of it after all these years :)
What about you?

English Country Gardens. I was just looking for a good version of it online. No such luck. The musical ones played via accordion and melodion sound wonderful, but good luck finding someone decent to sing it without turning it into some frilly turn of the 20th century parlor piece. Maybe it just needs a throaty man to sing it.

Bohemian Rhapsody. Reminds me of Wayne's World and that movie will also never get old.
30th Jun 2012, 07:10 PM
Any song by Queen or Abba. Totally.

Probably "Breaking the Habit" by Linkin Park. That song just never gets on my nerves.
1st Jul 2012, 06:57 PM
For me, its a tie between these two songs from a Japanese Rock band called RADWIMPS. They are 'Oshakashama' and 'Kimi to Hitsuji to Ao.'

In terms of more pop-type music (As opposed to classical because IMO none of that gets old)...I'd say "Unchained Melody," particularly as sung by The Righteous Brothers in 1965...which is probably before many of y'all's time but later singers have covered it, too, and it's been used in lots of movies/TV shows, so you're probably familiar with it even if you don't recognize the title (Which is not at all related to the lyrics of the song.) It's just a gorgeous song. Simple but so passionate, as all good love songs should be. It's one of my favorites to play/sing. You should hear me belt it out in the shower. :lol:
Oh, and I also agree with The Creeper about anything by ABBA or Queen. I'd also throw in anything by the Bee Gees. I prefer their pre-disco-era stuff, personally, but their three-part harmony is just so damn lovely that I'll take the disco stuff, too. (Sorry, kids, but in this oldster's opinion, today's music -- ESPECIALLY the pop -- just doesn't even come close to comparing... But then, I guess every generation says that about the music of the generations that come after them. :lol: )
1st Jul 2012, 07:27 PM
There are so many. My first "mom buy this album for me" produced Dare to be Stupid by Weird Al. It never gets old. For pop music songs, one of the thousand that-never-gets-old is Red Right Hand by Nick Cave. i've heard that one since The X Files was a new show. How about Heisse Lichte by EAV? that's my Austrian never-gets-old.

Pachelbel's Canon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOA-2hl1Vbc) can't get enough of it after listening for 3 hours on repeat.
And any song by Hypocrisy (A death metal band from the late 90's, Most of you probaly won't/don't like them)

Black Umbrella by BadLipReading. If you're a Youtuber you MUST have seen it. It never gets old to me.
"Now why in the world would you treat me as if I didn't understand trigonometry and tai-chi?"
"Extra lemon in my Diet Snapple makes a girl happy, oh yeah, sh*t that's right, tea got me jammin' from head to toe"
"Let's buy two big industrial windmills, I already got one, who needs three? Well, the first one I broke it"
20th Jul 2012, 08:18 PM
"Points of Authority" by Linkin Park (and I don't even really LIKE rock music...this song, for whatever reason, is different)
"Concrete Angel" by Martina McBride. Sure, it's sad - okay, REAL sad - but it's moves me.
"Redneck Woman' by Gretchen Wilson. The RoryV Theme Song! :beer:

21st Jul 2012, 06:07 AM
Absolutely any and everything by Jamie Cullum or Allison Sudol. But, more specifically, "Nothing I Do" and "Not While I'm Around" (Jamie) and "What I Wouldn't Do" (Alison).
Not to mention "Lover's Eyes" and "Below My Feet" by Mumford and Sons (and "Best of Me", as well as "Some Kind of Wonderful" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" as sung by Michael Buble - because even though he didn't do them first, he's Michael Buble, the man who's voice oozes everything that's good in the world, and, a few things that I'm not allowed to say here).
21st Jul 2012, 07:31 AM
Michael Bublé's voice has something way too sexy for his own good. :P
Unchained Melody is something indeed. The kind of song that will make your heart melt (positively, lol) if someone holds you while it plays, or will make you cry if you see the guy you love offer it over and over to someone else. For me it's been the latter recently so I'll eventually have to learn to like that song again, lol.
Depends on the mood, really.
Ultimate romantic song: "Still Loving You" by Scorpions or "I Remember You" by Skid Row, or "Ishkuess" by Kashtin
Ultimate breakup song: "Don't Cry" by old GnR
Ultimate energizer/cheer-up song: "Raspoutin" by Boney M. or the recent "Party Anthem" by LMFAO, or either "Cliffs of Dover" by Eric Johnson
Ultimate song when you feel like killing someone: "Raining Blood" by Slayer or any old Metallica song really loud

Anything Dream Theater. Love, love them.
I'm also a sucker for the Unforgiven trilogy by Metallica.
25th Nov 2012, 12:47 PM
Free Bird, by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Is not my favourite band but this song has been always there.
25th Nov 2012, 01:16 PM
Well, since I'm deaf the actual last song I think I ever heard was Leona Lewis' 'Bleeding Love'. That's not my favorite however.
I'm an eighties/nineties child and the songs from those era's are forever etched into my brain. I wake up with one in my head each morning. I swear I get radio waves and I'm in sync with a station somewhere.
Yet, my all time favorite song is Bryan Adam's 'Everything I do, I do it for you'.
Other than that the music that I liked varied from one end of the spectrum to the other, for examle:
Christian rock: Whitecross - Walk with me.
Heavy metal/rock: Metallica - Enter Sandman and The Unforgiven.
Country: Garth Brooks - The Dance.
Older music: Abba - Dancing Queen and The Carpenter's Superstar.
There were so many more in the 80's/90's I loved. Song's by the band's Bon Jovi and Duran Duran to name a few. I have a mini jukebox in my head that plays these songs over and over. I love it! :lol:
26th Nov 2012, 02:42 AM
The Beatles- Blackbird, Let It Be (along with every other song they [or individual band members] play xD)
Queen- Too Much Love Will Kill You
The Misfits- Saturday Night
28th Nov 2012, 03:09 PM
Since I AM, I guess, old, I will add only songs that are five years or older. Newer songs, I find I can't really vouch if they will have staying power. And I'll stick to "modern" music for now.
Pretty much agree with The Beatles. Some of their songs/covers are rather forgettable, IMO ("Mr. Moonlight", "Run for Your Life"), but I can still enjoy "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "I Am the Walrus", even decades later. And "A Day in the Life" ... still magnificent. And yes ... I HAVE listened to the Beatles for decades.
I agree with "The Man Who Sold the World", and would also add "Heroes" by Bowie. I still can lose myself in the latter song. Nirvana''s cover of "The Man Who Sold the World" is excellent, as well.
"Love, Reign O'er Me" by The Who. Also, "Won't Get Fooled Again" (the sentiment in that song has NEVER aged, IMO, and I still brace myself for "the scream"), "Baba O'Reilly", "Behind Blue Eyes".
"Waterloo Sunset", "Lola", "Celluloid Heroes", and lots of etc. from The Kinks. I like how so many of their songs are "storyteller songs" and make YOU fill in many details in your mind.
On a "storyteller song" note ... "Utopia" by Goldfrapp. Also, "Ride a White Horse" and "Strict Machine". Alison's voice is a treat to enjoy.
A whole bunch of etc. with one of the few NON-British (apparently) people on my list ... Cheap Trick. Still love "Surrender", "Just Got Back", and other songs.
"We Used to be Friends" by The Dandy Warhols. I know I'VE felt that way at one point in my life back in the day ...(Yes ... ANOTHER non-British group got on there! :) )
"Wonderwall" by Oasis. Some might cringe at that one. I SHOULD cringe at it ... my son used to play it over and over. :) And "Go Let it Out" still makes me smile at the Beatlesque aspects of it.
"These are the Days of our Lives" by Queen. Yes, it reminds many of Freddie, so it's a very bittersweet song, and I still get a lump in my throat when I hear it. But I think I read somewhere that Roger wrote it for his children, and it is also beautiful as a love song from an older couple's perspective. Simply a beautiful song all around.
I can add a whole bunch more, but this post is already too long.
29th Nov 2012, 01:57 AM
Livin on a prayer by Bon Jovi.. I always put it on when I'm at parties. I just don't get tired of it like with newer songs.. :)
11th Dec 2012, 05:40 PM
Many new-age instrumental music. Especially Roger Subirana, Ludovico Einaudi, Zero Project, Epic Soul Factory, etc...
12th Dec 2012, 06:29 AM
Oh god, too many to name. A few choice ones for now:
"Don't Fear the Reaper" -Blue Oyster Cult
"The Voice" - Celtic Woman (performed by Sarah Kelly, I believe) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQEy1GHPoBc)
"Dragonfly" - Shaman's Harvest (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4sQfHD_b_E)
Almost anything by Breaking Benjamin, Rise Against, Cavo, (http://www.youtube.com/user/CAVOvevo) early U2 (like, 80's and early 90's), The Urge, (http://www.youtube.com/user/TheUrgeVEVO/featured)a lot of The Who
Lately I've been really liking;
"Radioactive" - Imagine Dragons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktvTqknDobU) (sounds like a completely different band from the guys who made "It's Time," doesn't it?), even with the slightly crack-tacular music video. The teddy bears are coming for you...
"Eyes Wide Open" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyVJsg0XIIk) and (just to make people hate me, apparently) "Somebody That I Used to Know" - Gotye
And, just to get into the holiday spirit, "The Season's Upon Us" - Dropkck Murphys (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTx-sdR6Yzk)
Magic And Pancakes
28th Dec 2012, 02:18 AM
I agree with the previous poster on Bohemian Rhapsody. Such an amazing song that completely floors me every single time I listen to it.
Strawberry Fields Forever. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTXyoPVOUso) One of my earliest memories from childhood is listening to this song with my dad. I never get tired of listening to it because of that. I was pretty young but this song really stuck with me for some reason.
