A perfect song? What are your choices?

Can there be such a thing as a perfect song? I have a suggestion, what are yours? Here is a thought...






Gimme Shelter- Rolling Stones

Be My Baby- The Ronettes

What’s Going On- Marvin Gaye

Somewhere Over the Rainbow- Judy Garland

Layla- Derek and the Dominoes (Eric Clapton, Duane Allman)

Somewhere (There’s a Place for Us)- From the Original West Side Story-

You Really Got Me- The Kinks

Angel- Aretha Franklin

Thin Line Between Love and Hate- The Pretenders

Wrecking Ball- Emmylou Harris

Anarchy in the UK- Sex Pistols

I Fall to Pieces- Patsy Cline

Vogue- Madonna

A perfect song would be akin to pure musical pleasure.

You’d never get tired of it, and it would never fail to resonate with you.

I agree with what @kb54 said earlier.

For me also the theme of young love/ lust / yearning never loses its charm and never gets old.

It’s the stuff of life itself.
