Stairway to Heaven. But anyway you probably wouldn't recognize it because Led Zepplin are notorious for not letting their music be used. Here is Jack Black begging them to let them use a song in The School of Rock (which they did end up allowing).

And here is a deleted scene from Almost Famous. They filmed the scene but weren't allowed to use the song so they added the scene as a DVD extra. The scene didn't have the music so you had to sync the song to the video (which has been done in this link).

Great one.


I would have to say the song that reflects and encapsulates being a human being in an ever changing world is this:

I think this is on the very short list of greatest songs ever recorded. Not complicated, not overdone. Just something that appeals to the wide gamut of being a human being.

Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold" deserves some consideration.

He's composed many that are transcendentally brilliant. Leone's films have scores that really transport the listener.


Prince's "Purple Rain" also comes to mind.

First song that came to my mind was Springsteen - Thunder Road. It is pretty insane to image a single song being regarded as the greatest ever tho. There are definitely genre or era defining songs but music is way to diverse for there to be anything close to a consensus.

Stairway to Heaven isn't even my favorite Zepplin song. I still don't know what this means

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen


Also did someone just say they listened to Highway to Heaven?

This is Highway to Heaven

This is Highway to Hell

Anyway, It seems like this thread is "whites only" type music, so I'll exit to da left.


IMO, the greatest song ever is Michael Jackson's "Thriller" with "Billie Jean" a close 2nd. Goat gonna Goat.

You have to be musically challenge to have never heard of those songs. Hell they are even used in movie scores. F*cking nitwits. Hey want some blacks only type music?

I'm a huge music buff so I will answer this in terms of what I've seen from the many many lists and discussions I've had over the years. If I were to stick to English language songs from the 20th century and I had to pick one I'd say it would have to be Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone. When referring to greatness it's usually how impactful that song was to society and other music at the time. I remember not liking it the first time I heard it when I was really young. Eventually it became one of my all time favorites as well.
