    With all the music related threads, thought this one might be interesting to look at.

    Post your favorite 4 songs, and the reason that you like them.

    Suppose I better start:
    1) Daft Punk - Verdis Quo
    Pure emotion in sound. Whilst being simple, the depth that this song can go to is incredible. The easiest way to describe this song is one that takes the feelings of the listener and puts them down on paper.

    2) Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
    I don't think that any one man has bared his soul and produced a finer track. The lack of any other instruments and the clarity of the recording just resonate with an unparalleled beauty that is only more tragic with the passing of such a great musician.

    3) Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band - The River
    Emotion seems to be a running theme, and this song is no exception. It has to be the version from Live In New York City, with the Clarence Clemmons solo at the start. He poured his heart out in that solo, as did The Boss in his. This song touches in so many places, and takes on a different dimension walking round rainy streets when you're feeling down.

    4) Bruce Springsteen - Racing In The Streets ('78)
    This has to be from The Promise, which has a much better set of lyrics than Darkness. Pretty simple this one, if you're involved in Motorsport and, like most people, worried about the future, such a song would speak volumes. One of those rare songs that makes you sit back and reevaluate your life, and what it means to you.

    Now, over to you. What will you pick?

    Adele is always good. My favorite songs by her are Rolling in the Deep, and Set Fire to the Rain. My favorite band is Coldplay. Some of their songs include Viva la Vida, Paradise, Lost, Strawberry Swing, and so many more!
