What are your candidates for 'Greatest Song Ever Written' and what makes up a 'Greatest Song Ever Written'?
I have been pondering this question for a few days since viewing a YouTube video of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, which the poster had labeled as noted above.
While I think that’s a great song, even a favorite of mine, I don’t know if I would choose it as the greatest ever.
That got me to thinking about what makes up a ‘greatest song.’ I decided that for me, it’s a song that tells a story or evokes a mood perfectly with spare and beautiful lyrics and a great melody.
What are your candidates?
