'Right now, this is the best song in the world'

This might sink like a stone but I keep looking for a thread to post a song when you have that (BradNelsonTM) 'right now, this is the best song in the world' moment so I thought I'd make one.

Anyway, right now it's 'Still Life Blues' by Elephant Micah.

Often wonder if anyone just listens to 3-1 or 3-2 on their own

I suffer through a lot of unwelcome songs that get stuck in my head. That's one that gets stuck in my head all the time and I don't mind. I've never even owned a copy. It's just one of those songs you absorb.

The Highwomen - "Redesigning Women"

Either Ciara “Thinkin Bout You” or Harmonia and Eno “Almost”

L'assie (Euler), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 21:35 (three years ago) link

That Highwomen album is really great.

I had 'Spin That Wheel' as a cut-out piece of floppy vinyl that came with a box of Frosties when I was a kid

frame casual (dog latin), Thursday, 12 September 2019 10:15 (three years ago) link

Frosties with impeccable taste!

Pressure Dub is such an incredible piece of music, it feels like time stands still whenever I hear it out

At the best of times, I come at things in stupidly wide arcs. Oftentimes I realise they all lead back here.

You spend all year listening to (and posting about) great music, only to be gently reminded on Christmas Day that the best music in the world is in fact Angolan kuduro/afro house:

Os Pilukas ft. Ed-Sangria • Tá Tremer

breastcrawl, Wednesday, 25 December 2019 16:53 (three years ago) link

the best song in the world deserves to be called by its proper title: it’s “Tá Treme”.

The whole of this album is the best song in the world but this song is the best of the best.

must've sounded positively alien in 1982

xzanfar, Wednesday, 7 April 2021 23:47 (one year ago) link

nice try, xzanfar, but the best song in the world right now is actually 'Overheard' by Mississippi Charles Bevel

deepfake chopra (unregistered), Thursday, 8 April 2021 00:53 (one year ago) link

(and I'm only just realizing how many classic albums Phil Upchurch has appeared on)

deepfake chopra (unregistered), Thursday, 8 April 2021 00:55 (one year ago) link

that song is something else for sure

John Cooper of Christian rock band Skillet (map), Thursday, 8 April 2021 01:58 (one year ago) link

Ha! That Mississippi Charles Bevel record is the first thing I bought in 2016 that resulted in my second go-round with amassing a large vinyl collection five years later.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 8 April 2021 03:05 (one year ago) link

Anyway, right now this is the best song in the world.


Johnny Fever, Thursday, 8 April 2021 03:07 (one year ago) link

timely revive, i just saw this random dylan collection on spotify and decided to dig in and got to (possibly the first recording of?) i'll keep it with mine and yep: still top gear, mr. zimmerman.

I think there’s an earlier Witmark demo version, but yeah it’s a great song.

come along you starbucks lovers (taylor’s version) (morrisp), Thursday, 8 April 2021 03:30 (one year ago) link

The best song in the world will always be “clair de lune”.

Pretty sure it's actually this spiffy David Hess number today.
