Is there one song for you that you, for yourself, call "The Best Song I've Ever Heard"?



I enjoy a HUGE amount of music styles, and I have many "favorites," but I do have one song I call the "Best Song I've Ever Heard" (and I know I've said it a lot on the site here)


Lyrics, music, performance, instrumental accompaniment -- this one is up there all by itself for me:

"Ode To Billie Joe"    Bobbie Gentry

    Ross Wilson fronted Daddy Cool, then later formed Mondo Rock. His then-wife Patricia did that godawful Bop Girl.

    Country? I've got a couple:

    I will listen, i promise! thanks for answering my requested genre! (Because country western is not usually a genre to which I'm drawn, in spite of Gentry residing there - - and Patsy Cline, too, who melts me any time she sings.)

    I'm getting a little antsy sitting at the moment and might go do some other things, though.

    And thanks for the reminder about Ross Wilson/Daddy Cool/Mondo Rock! (And 'Bop Girl,' ha!)
