Favorite Song Ever?

It’s the Go-Betweens “Bye Bye Pride.” Originally from their “Tallulah” record, it’s appeared in various forms (mostly live) on other recordings of theirs — most recently a semi-acoustic live version on their new disk, “Oceans Apart.”

I know it won’t have the same effect on you, but for me, every time I hear it, my chest tightens, I feel happy, I feel sad, I feel exhilarated, I feel nostalgic and a touch melancholy, and I feel optomistic and hopeful. Sometimes, purging tears spring to my eyes… not weeping so much as a gentle release of pressure.

Every time.

I love that song. I owe so much to that band, for that song, and for others that sometimes come close. But “Bye Bye Pride” does it every time.

Just wanted to share. What’s your favorite song ever? Why?

Oh yeah… once again, thank you, Anne.
