Yet another completely random music meme

This was found at Eden's.

Favorite Beatles song
Impossible to name just one. I can try to break it down by writer:
John-“You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away”
Paul- “I’m Looking Through You”
George-“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”
Ringo-“With a Little Help From My Friends”

Favorite solo song by a former Beatle
This one’s easier. “Instant Karma” by John Lennon. A close second to “Watching the Wheels”. Not much by George, Ringo or Paul has ever excited me.

Favorite Rolling Stones song
This is almost as hard as the first. I have to go with “Gimmee Shelter”, “Tumbling Dice” or “Miss You”. Oh, and it’s not a great song, but the current single, “Rough Justice” is the best Stones song since “Emotional Rescue”.

Favorite Bob Dylan song
“Tangled Up in Blue”. A magnificent, rambling look at a relationship, this song tells a better story than most novels.

Favorite Pixies song
“Here Comes Your Man”

Favorite Prince song
Another hard one. “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man”, or “Sign O’ the Times”.

Favorite Michael Jackson song
Remember kiddies, Michael wasn’t always a creepy joke. “Billie Jean”, “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, or even “She’s Out of My Life”, the single most maudlin song in pop music history.

Favorite Metallica song
“One” or maybe “The Unforgiven”

Favorite Public Enemy Song
“911 is a Joke”

Favorite Depeche Mode Song
“Never Let Me Down Again”

Favorite Cure song
“Why Can’t I Be You?”

Favorite song that most of your friends haven’t heard
I dunno about this one…

Favorite Beastie Boys song
“No Sleep Till Brooklyn” or “Body Movin’”

Favorite Police song
It’s so overplayed it has become a bit of a cliché, but “Every Breath You Take” might be the best pop song of the 1980’s.

Favorite Sex Pistols song
“Pretty Vacant”

Favorite song from a movie
Now, this is just a bit too open-ended here.

Favorite Blondie song
“The Tide is High”

Favorite Genesis song
What a bizarrely random selection this is. Umm… I would go with “Tonight, Tonight, Tonight” or “Land of Confusion”.

Favorite Led Zepplin song
“Going to California”

Favorite INXS song
“Suicide Blonde”

Favorite Weird Al song
“Dare to be Stupid” rips off Devo and was featured in the Transformers movie. How can you go wrong?

Favorite Pink Floyd song
“Comfortably Numb”

Favorite Cover song
“Maybe I’m Amazed (Live)” by Faces. Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood take Paul McCartney’s rather pedestrian love song and make it real and raw. Or I could go with the Cowboy Junkies amazing version of "Sweet Jane".

Favorite U2 song
“Running to Stand Still”

Favorite Disco song
“Don’t Leave Me This Way” by Thelma Houston

Favorite Who song
“Baba O’Reilly” or “Won’t Get Fooled Again”

Favorite Elton John song
Almost as hard as the Beatles question. In order: “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters”, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” and “Tiny Dancer”.

Favorite Clash song
“London Calling”, “Train in Vain” or “White Man in Hammersmith Palais”

Favorite David Bowie song
“Heroes”…. or maybe “Suffragette City”, I can’t decide.

Favorite Nirvana song

Favorite Snoop Dogg song
Does his part of “Nothing but a “G” Thing” count?

Favorite Ice Cube song
“Today was a Good Day”

Favorite Johnny Cash song
“I Walk the Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, or “Ring of Fire”

Favorite REM song

Favorite Elvis song
‘Suspicious Minds”

Favorite Cheezy-Ass Country song
Now why couldn’t this have been a cool country act like Hank Williams (Senior, thank you), Merle Haggard or George Jones? That would be “Hey, Good Lookin’”, “If We Make it Through December” and “He Stopped Loving Her Today”.

Hmm.. I’ll go with “The Thunder Rolls” I guess.
