    What song does it for you?

    Seen this topic on other boards. So what song/s gets you singing at the top your lungs or taping your footsies or even balling your eyes out?

    Billy Joel's We didn't start the fire always gets me bouncing around the room and singing at the top of my lungs

            Broken is a great record.

            The last song that I listened to that made me want to jump up and down like an idiot was probably Wake by Godflesh.

              For 'bawlin' my eyes out,' Motِrhead's '1916' works.

              For the 'Howl Along With . . .' Stevie Wonder's 'Superstition' is good.

              Anything by Motِrhead (remember: Lemmy took the Speed, so you wouldn't have to!)

              Hawkwind's Version 2 of 'Motorhead,' sung by Dave Brock, works every time.

                Moonglum for me too! I love the Hawkwind version of course, but the version I have by The Assassins Of Silence is really good too (and Huw is playing on it!)

                    I recently discovered -- by reading the album liner notes, wow, imagine that! -- that their song "The Reign of Shemsu-Hor" was directly based on a book by a British friend o' mine, Andrew Collins.


                    Lyrically I'm always blown away by Rush's "Territories" or Dream Theater's "Learning To Live"

                    Performance-wise I'd say I was most blown away recently by either Therion's "The Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah" or Cradle of Filth's "Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids"

                        Led Zeppelin - The Immigrant Song does it every time. Indeed, I'm pretty sure the neighbors are pretty tired of hearing me bellow "HAMMER OF THE GODS"

                            Song that gets my blood pumping is "Ace of Spades" by Motorhead.

                            I also like "Sleep of A Thousand Tears" by Hawkwind off 'Chronicle of the Black Sword". Makes me play air guitar and tap in time.

                              Not easy that
                              Kevins choice reminds me of the chorus on Celebration Day by Zeppelin which i always love to belt out
