What's Your Favourite "Before Your Time" Song?


Supreme System Lord
What's your favourite song that was released before you were born.

This would be interesting to see, would anybodies options be dramatically reduced?

My favourite song before my time changes regularly. One minute it's Hotel California (Eagles), then it's a Pink Flloyd track.

But for now I'm going to say Rocking all over the world - Status Quo.
All my favourite songs were released before I was born :shifteyes: so that would be Shine on you crazy diamond - Pink Floyd, just because of the pure epic-ness of that song. I don't even listen to it a whole lot, to keep it super shpecial.

Mine would be Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms which was released in 1985, so 4 years before I was born.

There are no songs "before my time" (ha! just kidding).

O.K. I've got one: "As Time Goes By," from the classic film "Casablanca"
(1942). That one is five years older than I am.
