i read somewhere that the golden age of songwriting happened in the years 1965-1975.

so, please, how about post the songs that you wish you had written and also the year that it was written?

i'll start with this:

1967

I can't choose one. If I had to, it would be 'Yesterday.' I could live like a king off the royalties for that alone.

This one (yeah, I know it's super self-serving posting a song I co-wrote, but f**k it, this song for me in so many ways is perfection. It's everything i got into music for and I had always wished I could write a song as transcendent as this, plus the people I created it with are beautiful souls, and if I had to exist in a vegetative state with one song to listen to for eternity it would be this one, I could get lost in it forever :love: :love: )

I'm envious of pretty much every song I like.

To name a few, though.

Anything on Yanni's "Tribute" Album, 1997

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2LqB7TDAOU

2015 (I think)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-F0Sl_b2Rs

1995

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hGQ97tCTOs

1992 probably my favorite metal song of all time tbh. Great vocals, badass riff, stellar guitar tone and those solos (build up to the second one is so f**king epic) just get me every time.

1999 honestly I love all of Max Martin's work from back when

“ We cower in our shelters
With our hands over our ears
Lloyd-Webber's awful stuff
Runs for years and years and years

An earthquake hits the theater
But the operetta lingers
Then the piano lid comes down
And breaks his f**king fingers

It's a miracle”
