I'm going to pick Three Days by Jane's Addiction because it is the greatest song in rock history. The lyrics. The way it builds, and then explodes, and then dissipates, and then explodes again, and then turns into an audial version of a sunrise. Greatest drumming ever. The guitar solo. The bassline. The weird poem going in the background. Perry Farrell losing his fucking mind and screaming during the solo. The incredible guitar parts that just keep coming and coming; it's almost like watching a movie full of twists - it's very visual and storylike. It's a masterpeice in every sense of the word and it gets no respect whatsoever and that pisses me off. And perhaps the most amzing thing about Three Days is that it's followed by Then She Did... which is almost as good.

Seeing everyone else's picks I almost don't want to pick a U2 song...

I think if I didn't pick TUF then I would either pick Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis because not only is there the original to love, but there's the great many covers to chose from as well, or Love to be Loved by Peter Gabriel...or Games without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel. But honestly the one song I couldn't live without is TUF

Last week on a day off, I hung around the bookstore and ended up reading a great book of John Lennon quotes. He was so present in the moment, and filled with wisdom and wit. Everything he stood for is amazingly relevant today...maybe even moreso. I actually got choked up after I finished reading it...I guess the magnitude of his loss, and the senselessness of it, just really struck me in that moment.

The world could use an army of John Lennons right about now.
