    God Only Knows - Beach Boys

    greatest song of all time.  I have no list after that

    Lifeless Dead - Mad Season
    Vanity - Highly Suspect 
    Feelin Good - The Growlers 

    Honorable mention to Promises by Fugazi. 

    This is impossible. I think I would have an easier time if I was making an album tracklist. The only one that wouldn’t change daily is probably Feelin Good.

    Pap I feel lucky to have seen 2 of your 3 performed live: Waterboys on the Fisherman's Blues album tour, and the Police on Ghost in the Machine and Zenyatta Mondatta (but they did So Lonely at least one of those 2 shows).  I WISH I'd seen Bob Marley live... so sorry I never got the chance.

    And now I'm jealous!.. :smile: I was fortunate enough to see Fisherman's Blues as the last song (a memorable sing-along and first row experience) of an incredible summer night in Athens, Greece during the Book Of Lightning tour in 2007! :smiley:

    I'm not capable of actually choosing my 3 favorite songs... there is really no such thing. So these are basically just 3 songs I love, lol.

    Perfect Day - Lou Reed
    Inevitability of Death - Tragically Hip
    Bron-Y-Aur Stomp - Led Zeppelin

    (The Hip song isn't available on Spotify for some reason, so my replacement choice, for the sake of the playlist I'm making, is Hallelujah covered by KD Lang)

    "Fishreman's Blues" is not in my top three but it's a great song.  Love those whooping oooh, oooh's! Good choice, there!
