"What is your favorite song?"

I see this as a 'discussion' here often, and I never respond to it. I got asked this question at facebook this morning, and I answered "Too many to pick just one". But really, how do you pick a 'favorite' song? Isn't that kind of like asking "What is your favorite strawberry?" (My answer? Red ones, not green ones ) That song might have great lyrics. This song might have a beautiful melody. That song may have an unforgettable 'hook'. But I don't think I can take any one song and say "This is my favorite song". I might have a favorite song from this band, and one from that band, and one from another. But lots of times, it is whatever song is playing right now.

It's impossible isn't it. For me a lot depends upon the mood I'm in. And sometimes my favourite thing of all is silence!!

I sit and stare at my collection, and as I reach for one, I suddenly think "No, maybe this one" and it goes on and on

You are right. It is impossible. One moment it's one song and the next another.

I can pretty easily pick my favorite newest song...but man, trying to pick through all I listen to and saying "Yeah, this one right here" just ain't conceivable.

I couldn't pick ONE favorite song either. I like A LOT of songs. I don't even know if I have a favorite music genre!

I agree, it's impossible to pick just one. I am mean enough though that I would probably respond by listing every song I ever considered a "favorite," until they were sorry they asked.

Right at this very moment it's anything by Hildegard von Bingen... no wait! It's "Going Home" sung by Bryn Turfel... or maybe "Ruby Tuesday" by the Stones.... argh! You're right, JJ, can't choose.

@JolietJake Having only one favorite would be tiresome after a while.

I also have lots of songs that are among my list of favorites. But to say that one song is my favorite? No, I don't have one. I will say that my favorite new song on the radio is Imagine Dragons with Thunder.

That's such a generic question. I just respond with whatever song comes to mind at the moment. Right now, my new favorite song is 'Perfect' by Ed Sheeran.

You speak my mind! It's just impossible. Everytime I hear something new that I like it just instantly becomes my favorite.

Is it similar to the question, 'Who is your favorite parent?'
