Just wondering what my fellow A-netters favourite song of all time is? For me it has to be,

U2 - The streets have no name.

and joint first, A-ha - The sun always shines on TV, also Simple Minds - Belfast Child.

Cheers, Steve.

    I can't decide... it all depends on the mood I am in. "Woodstock" by Matthews' Southern Comfort is great for those "don't want to do anything but listen to music and dream away" moments, "Every You Every Me" by Placebo (from Cruel Intentions) is great for the "screw the world" times, "Isobel" by Dido is good for the less happy moments, "Chocolate" by Kylie Monogue just screams "turn on" even though she whispers all the time, "Smoke on the Water" by Señor Coconut (sort of a parody) is just great fun... no way to decide.
