    Hi there,

    I am uncertain if this idea has been done before, but I think it could work quite well. Basically, if you had to pick one song to recommend to everyone else in the world, what would it be?

    I have a broad range in different musical tastes, so, I'm going to pick a few from different music genres. I hope that you will do the same and hopefully this thread will let other people discover new music.

    Acoustic - Howie Day - Collide
    Punk - Finch - Letters to You
    Rock - Muse - Map of the Problematique

    The first song I have recommended in not available in the UK iTMS but it well worth the download.

    Shaun

    I'm sure there are similar threads, but I'll play along. I'm infatuated with No Doubling Back (iTunes Store link) from Jason Mraz right now.

    EDIT: Yikes! I don't have that version. I have some acoustic version that is MUCH better. The version I have is from his Sold Out album from 2002.

    I know you aren't surprised by my selections:

    The Roof - Mariah Carey (pure GENIUS)
    Breakdown - Mariah Carey
    Petals - Mariah Carey

    Shows sides of Mariah people don't think of. AMAZING songs.

    love will tear us apart, Joy division.

    Bit of an odd one, but I like it.

    I've always really liked it too. It manages to be both mournful and nostalgic, qualities that are much appreciated in a bit o' late night listening. :D

    Esepcially the Mo' Thugs Remix; this is one of -- if not THE -- best songs of her career. Way ahead of its time.

    6 in no particular order - although none of them are technically "songs" since they don't have words. However, these are pieces of music you could listen to for a lifetime and still find satisfaction.

    West End Blues - Louis Armstrong
    St. Matthew's Passion - J.S. Bach
    Adagio for Strings - Samuel Barber
    A Love Supreme - John Coltrane
    Music for 18 Musicians - Steve Reich
    Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis - Ralph Vaughan Williams
