Greatest song ever written

Post  pinhedz on Wed Mar 07, 2012 3:39 am

Here is the correct answer, but runners-up and also-rans are also welcome. alien

Some people say Schwarzkopf was the best, others prefer Gundula Janowitz (fabulous voice):

Henry wrote:A tribute to the greatest song in the world
The same thing happened to Guiseppe Tartini. Then he wrote the "Devil's Trill" Sonata, but he said the sonata didn't really sound anything like what he'd heard during his encounter with the devil. No

Some years ago there was an international poll to select the greatest song.

The winner was Shto Mi E Milo.

Unfortunately, every choral society on the planet has since slaughtered Shto Mi E Milo (see youtube).

This is the best version I could find:

Here's this version for Henry:

Don't shoot the messenger--that song was selected by an international poll. bounce

The version that I actually like is not to be found anywhere on the web. Neutral

The number of bad versions of "Shto Mi E Milo" is probably only surpassed by the bad versions of "Whiskey In The Jar." Razz

the album is called Artaud



it says the artist is pescado rabioso but it is really an Spinetta's solo album. And it's very good.

I will just go for Pop songs and I would nominate 3.
1. Last Thing On My Mind written and sung by Tom Paxton and a few others.

2." Four Strong Winds" written by Ian Tyson and recorded by Ian and Sylvia and over 500 other artists.

3. "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" written by Bob Dylan and recored by many others as well.
