Best Song 2005 (in Contests)


Max June 4 2005 2:10 AM EDT

1k Entry Fee per Entry. Better pay if you post. Ill check. Posting without paying makes kitty scared!

Best song will be picked by poll. You can pick the same song as someone else except you have to pay to the bank double what they paid. Here is an example:

Max -Greenday - Blvd of Broken Dreams 1k

G_Beee - Greenday - Blvd of Broken Dreams 2k!

BooDiggity - Greenday - Blvd of Broken Dreams 4k!

So, you see the pot can grow big. Good luck.

Is this to be a 2005 song, or are we choosing, in 2005, the song we believe to be the best of all time? It doesn't change my answer, of course, because I just can't help it, I love these lyrics:

Jo Dee Messina - My Give A Damn's Busted

(The cat will have to remain frightened 'til Max updates his post with an intended destination for the funds.)

I would say my favourite from the past year would be:
Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot
but since they are an English band not that popular elsewhere I shall go with:
System Of A Down - B.Y.O.B

Here's where I pay the price for not listening to the radio at all. However, I did manage to find an wonderful song this year:

Straylight Run - Existentialism on Prom Night

Chargerz-Back June 4 2005 11:50 AM EDT

No Address - When I'm Gone

Choosing a "best song" is like asking me to pick my favorite whisky... so many to choose from with my favorite being a different one every day depending on my mood and surroundings :)

That said, if I had to choose my fav song in 2005 it would prolly be... heh, I dunno, but I've sent 1k to the pot anyway :p

BrandonLP June 4 2005 1:24 PM EDT

I definitely agree, G Beee. If asked about my favorites recently, it would include Duncan Sheik, Better than Ezra, and Third Eye Blind. Last week it would've consisted of At the Drive-In, FM Static, and Taproot. I think sticking to 2005 would be best though.

Will [Retired] June 4 2005 1:37 PM EDT

heh heres mine, just because it rocks :P

Mad Caddies - All American Badass

sending the $1000 now, can we enter more than one song?

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] June 5 2005 8:25 AM EDT

Let us just say the new Green day album is so overly Mainstream.

Same with Blink 182, throw the new album in the bin and give me the old stuff!

AdminG Beee June 7 2005 5:53 AM EDT

Taking into consideration my previous comment about my favorite song having as much to do with my mood and surroundings as anything else I must admit that my particular "best song" right now is:

Dave Mathews Band (Central Park Concert): All along the Watchtower.

That particular version just kinda gives me goosebumps at the moment and although it's not quite a song from 2005 I only first heard it this year :p

P.S. Before all the aficionados out there jump on my back - yes the Hendrix original is fantastic too

QBsutekh137 June 7 2005 10:14 AM EDT

Hendrix original? Don't you mean Dylan? *smile*

(the Hendrix version would be my favorite, but have to give props to the actual writer...)

AdminG Beee June 7 2005 10:24 AM EDT

heh, indeed

Hendrix version*
