Does anyone not know what I voted for?
Misch Back · 11 years, 7 months ago
I could Imagine.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 11 years, 7 months ago
I so hope you are kidding. I love Imagine but it isn't the greatest song of all time.
Josh Woodward Back · 11 years, 7 months ago
This is the one time we agree on RT. I don't like his version, but it's an amazing song to be sure.

I never really liked Imagine. It's too sappy and way overplayed. I sometimes feel like people like it because they're SUPPOSED to like it. Meh. Richard Thompson for the landslide win!
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 11 years, 7 months ago
It's a tie, not a landslide. Vote Chicago style, early and often.
Melanie the Goob Back · 11 years, 7 months ago
RT is pulling ahead... woohoo!
J. Andrew World Back · 11 years, 7 months ago
 That is why I voted for the VU.

I guess I should do some electioneering as 1952 VBL is the greatest song ever written. I could just link to entries of my blog, I've written about it so often. I'll spare you that. I'll just give a list.
  1. The guitar solo is the height of virtuosity, you'd swear there were two guitars, but it is not showing off but moving and integral to the song.
  2. It says more about love in 5 minutes than any book on philosophy or psychology ever written.
  3. It has not one but two of the greatest lines ever in a song.
    1. Says James, "In my opinion, there's nothing in this world
      Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
    2. But he smiled to see her cry
  4. It is a classic British highwayman ballad updated to modern times.
  5. I cry every time I hear it
