Favorite songs

Post by Diehardpetrafan:) » Mon Nov 09, 2020 5:31 pm

I was about 99% sure this was also a topic, but again, nothing but Christian ones came up when I searched "favorite songs" soo, yeah. It's evident what my question to you is, what are your favorite songs? This can be your current, all time, or a mix of both. I'll make my list, though it's doubtless going to be hard :roll:

(Not In Any Specific Order)
1. MT- The 77's
2. The Hurting- Tears for Fears
3. I Feel You- Depeche Mode
4. It's No Good- Depeche Mode
5. 1963- New Order
6. Ceremony- New Order
7. Vanishing Point- New Order
8. Not Enough Time- INXS
9. By My Side- INXS
10. Never Tear Us Apart- INXS


I feel that there's so much missing off this list :cry:

I'll come back to this more than the other topic- I betcha I'll come back in a week or so and have an edited list.

Impossible to list my favourites, but here are some of the songs that have stayed with me for a long time. Some are deep, but most are just cool tunes.

Makes Me Wanna Sing- Stryper
More Than a Man - Stryper
Island in the Sun - Harry Belafonte
Abraham, Martin and John - Harry Belafonte
Broken Promises - The Resurrection Band
Waves - The Resurrection Band
Sultans of Swing - Dire Straits
You Are My Rock - Petra
Stand Up - Petra
The Pass - Rush
La Villa Strangiato - Rush
Bullet the Blue Sky - U2
Like a Hurricane - Neil Young
Thrasher - Neil Young
Gods of War - Def Leppard
Sanctuary - Daniel Amos
If You Want To - Daniel Amos
Return of the Giant Hogweed - Genesis
Watcher of the Skies - Genesis
Runnin' Down a Dream - Tom Petty
Sloop John B - The Beach Boys
Civil War - Guns n Roses
Hercules - Midnight Oil
Arctic World - Midnight Oil
Yesterday - The Beatles
Assassing - Marillion
Messiah - Larry Norman
If God Is My Father - Larry Norman
Dance of Eternity - Dream Theater
Reality - The Daniel Band
Run From the Darkness - The Daniel Band

When you get older, many songs just stick with you. I am not a fan of how a few of these artists live their lives, but they still made some great music.

With a name like Progfan, you are probably the only other person here who knows any of these 6 songs from my list. I really like the version of Hogweed from Genesis' first live album.

Anyway, that one had some really good ones on it I think and I was really happy that it was on there.

I have way too many favorite songs to even begin to try listing them, which I suppose stretches the definition of "favorite".
