    I know this topic is going to cause quite a stir, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

    Hmmmm, REM? English song? I don't know much but what I do know is I was born in their hometown, Athens Georgia. Ok they might be brits who went over there but I've allways thought of them as American.

    Won't Get Fooled Again is absolutely brilliant and so is Baba O'Riley but as it was the BEST song ever......left them out. This thread might head in direction of the 'Favourite Song Of The Week' thread.

    Radiohead - Paranoid Android
    The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again
    The Who - Bubba O'Riley
    and maybe Muse - Muscle Museum

    Very nearly seconded that.

    However, my pick goes to The Beatles' Eleanor Rigby.

    Great song.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I clearly called it an 'English Song' as I was referring it to the language it was sung in.

    We have many Indian and hindi posters, who would've put some very nice hindi songs as well in the 'All time list'.

    Sorry for the confusion
