Favorite Song, with video
« on: December 10, 2011, 04:51:31 PM »
Here's another good getting to know you game -- post a video of one of your favorite songs, a song you always like just a much the next time you hear it as the first time you heard it.

Mine is the Beatles Blackbird

(and Bruce, you can post whatever else you want but I'd appreciate if you'd also repost that "DirtyDeeds Done Dirt Cheap" video -- I've been trying to find the original post but I just can't)

Blackbird is a beautiful song. A song I never get tired of is Holy Diver by Dio.

I can't say I have one favorite song above all others.  There are, however, many songs which I dig a lot and/or may have influence me musically in one way or another.  A few examples are:

Dream Theater's - Metropolis Part I

Jason Becker's - The End of the Beginning

In Flames - Zombie Inc.

Awesome song. In fact, the whole album is just amazing and that is my favorite track on it.

This is causing my head to hurt...

I've narrowed it down as best I can.

1) In the Heat of the Night - Whitesnake

2) Black - Pearl Jam (in a particular mood or sufficient alcohol, this will tear me up)

After the top two, it becomes more difficult...

3) (Welcome Home) Sanitarium - Metallica

4) Symphony Of Destruction - Megadeth

5) Mistreated - Dio (live version from Inferno: Last In Live)

Tied for 6 & 7) A Secret Place & Prince of Darkness - Megadeth

8/9) Death before Dishonor & Bad Company - Five Finger Death Punch

And a bonus track appropriate for today's political climate:
Elected - Alice Cooper

Oh, I know the OP wants a video, but some of these songs video's are junk (In the Heat of the Night) and some I have never seen.

The essence of the mind is not in what it thinks, but how it thinks. Faith is the surrender of our mind; of reason and our skepticism to put all our trust or faith in someone or something that has no good evidence of itself. That is a sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith is not.

Alright, so here are some other songs I never seem to get tired of:

Alter Bridge - Blackbird (Not a cover of the Beatles song)
Judas Priest Dissident Aggressor (Man, what a voice Rob Halford used to have...)
Led Zeppelin - The Ocean
Megadeth - Holy Wars... The Punishment Due
Metallica - The Unforgiven
Motörhead - Damage Case
Pantera - I'm Broken

Too lazy to post any more right now.
