Does anyone actually have an answer to this? I feel like this has changed so much throughout my life.
Currently, my favorite song is probably “Audience” by Cold War Kids. If we’re looking at the past five years, it’s “Best for Last” by Adele (still my #1 choice to sing in the shower), but if we’re talking about my entire life, hands down it’s “Layla” by Clapton (the version from his Unplugged) album.
I know “Layla” is ridiculously popular/overplayed, but that’s because it’s just a great song. And if you’ve never heard the Unplugged version, GET ON THAT. It’s perfect.
