The Favorite Song meme
It's been a while since we had a meme around here. This one comes from meirionwen.

A lot of these were agonizing choices. There's no such thing as my single favorite song by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Police, Duran Duran, or the Smiths. Even Weird Al was hard to choose from. Even the Beach Boys, and I can't stand them except for Pet Sounds. And "favorite song, period"? Hahahahahahaha!

I felt that way a bit too, that I either didn't know anything by the act in question or I loved too many of their songs to choose just one. I just did my best.

I see what you're saying. I think this survey just happened to be targeted at the specific window of time in which I grew up, which is why I knew most of the acts it mentioned.
