1001 songs you must hear!!...

Hi, I like most of you out there am a lover of music, and love hearing new music, usually passed on my friends or people saying 'omg you must hear this song!!'

I thought it would be great if people could post songs in here that they absolutely love and think everyone in the world should hear it. It could be a U2 song (im sure everyone on here already has heard them though!), another band, any genre, any time, write up the lyrics or tell me why you love this song and recommend it?

There are so many bands out there i've never heard of that people love and vice versa, and I couldn't find a thread where people could post their favourite song recommendations.

So for my first song I recommend is 'The Boy With a Thorn in His Side' by The Smiths. I *love* the melody and Moz's lyrics and voice. Its such a fantastic song!

Next?!

I would recommend anyone to check out Will Oldham/Palace Music/Palace Brothers/Bonny Prince Billie (the guy likes to change his name now and again)
usually the song "Give me children" because of it's heartbreaking honest qualities is my fav

since it can be a bit difficult finding his work I give thee a live version of the song "Same love" which shows a bit of the man's genius
