There is no best song unless you are stuck in a city of ClearChannel Radio spin the same 30 songs every two hours for the rest of your life while drinking Bud Light type of town. Music is constantly changing and evolving. Tonight's favorite is Richard Thompson's "Vincent Black Lighting", tomorrow might be Cake's "Building a Religion", Monday, Moody Blues' "Knights in White Satin" Tuesday, Death Cab for Cutie "Into the Black." Point is music changes daily go out on a limb and try something new, you might like it. When the new Arbitrons come out and people have switched off the crappy repeat the playlist on the hour radio stations and gone to satellite or internet radio ClearChannel and the mega crap conglomerates might play something besides Leonard Skynard and Led Zepplin 5 times an hour again!

close, but no cigar...

This isn't the best song. But it is a tribute:

Trivia: what is the common thread between the two?
