Thursday Music

Recently an international poll was conducted by three radio stations (UK, Australia, and USA) concerning what was the best song of all time. The results favored Oasis' 'Live Forever' amazingly enough. Fans also voted two other songs from the turbulent band into the top five.

The rest of the results obviously show that most modern music fans have the attention span of someone who would claim Dan Brown as quality literature. Most of the songs in the top ten haven't even had a chance to stand the test of history, like the Killers' 'Mr Brightside'. Good song yes, but clearly undeserving of it's place in the poll. It's like Republicans constantly claiming Reagan as the country's greatest president.

I wonder if polls like this existed back in the early nineties and people voted All-4-One songs as the best ever. It's like music never existed before they hit puberty.

Anyways I'll bring you one of my favorite songs of all time, from what I consider to be the best American film ever. You won't like it for it clearly doesn't have the depth and quality of the Gallaghers.

"With every song that I write, I compare it to the Beatles. The thing is, they only got there before me. If I'd been born at the same time as John Lennon, I'd have been up there." - Noel Gallagher

I like Oasis, but do feel they are a bit of a Beatles rip off...

Yet more proof that democracy allows morons to have their worthless opinion counted equally to my informed knowledge.
