    All-Time Favourite Song

    Seeing we have all-time favourite movies, what's our all-time favourite songs?

    Ok, we all have so many favs... What's our top 3 fav songs?

    I shall start with mine:

    - definitely, the Scorpions' Still Loving You (I'm a big fan of them).



    - Suo Gan, inspired by the movie, Empire of the Sun



    - Underwater Love

    Sleep, little one, close your eyes, mother will sing you a lullaby... Sleep in a jewel cradle, sleep, mother will rock you.
    If you don't sleep the midges will go for your eyes and pollen will fall on the cradle....Sleep, close your eyes...
    - Isaan folksong, from "The Price of a Life" (Onkom, 1997)

    I like the first song, roughly translated as Moonlight In the City. I remembered it was the theme song of a really good local sitcom titled Beancurd Street (I know the English translation makes it sound really hilarious lol).

    Re: All-Time Favourite Song

    I thought the Underwater Love is very sensual and dream-like. In fact, I like many songs, of the ambient and chill-out kind, that contain the 'watery feel'. But I like Underwater Love the best, although it is not quite new; I got the CD with the song in it from HMV in 2001, and that was after I got hooked on the album after we were at a friend's house, so the song is probably quite old.

    True enough, its a sensual song all right..And the song in 2001 is never be to quite old. Some of the oldies songs up till now is still far better than the modern ones. This is what I believe

    Remember that there got 1 word call "You jump, I jump" in Titanic.

    I kind of like the words the host and himself said "Yesterday I was a chubby boy and now everybody is looking at me". Here's the song My Heart Will Go On...Enjoy

    Re: All-Time Favourite Song

    Actually, I have more favourites than just the 3 above. But I thought it is kind of embarrassing if I were to list loads and loads of MY fav non-stop like a naccisstic. Anyhow, I am a big fan of the 1970s music and fashion scene. So the other songs that I just cannot get over, and which never fail to get me singing along are Hotel California and Deep Purple's Soldier of Fortune.

    Please do peiyan! There is noting to be embarrassing about. And I didn't knew that you are a big fan of the 1970s music and fashion scene. What I can remembered that the Beatles and one song called yesterday once more.

    This is the song that what I can recalled....



    Another one Mr Postman

    Kudos to peiyan! Hotel California was once my favourite and was forgotten over the passage of time. I'm grateful that you had helped me to recall back the goodie songs back then...
