No matter what kind of music genre?

Well, it'll probably be a long list, gotta think about it first...

The music genre is not important because music is a personal taste, if you like Celine Dion (.......oh shit, i'm gonna puke) then that's alright .....right?.... Shocked
It also doesn't matter what kind of language the songs are .... cheers
I heard a few months ago a Inner-Mongolian (folk-rock)-band called Hanggai in my hometown, their songs were in their own native language but nonetheless great and especially their 'Drinking Song' was hilarious... geek

I have called this topic 'the Greatest songs ever' because the word 'greatest' is something else then 'the best'... Idea

I'm also very anxious which songs other members like because these songs can extend my list of favorite songs considerably... king

Phew, hard question. As for the greatest (rock) song ever, "Bohemian Rhapsody" would be my choice and I'd choose "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel as the best music video.

Other personal favourites of mine would be:

Sonata Arctica - White Pearl, Black Oceans...
Dream Theater - A Change of Seasons
Nightwish - The Siren
Nightwish - Lappi
Nightwish - FantasMic
Nightwish - Ghost Love Score
Eternal Tears of Sorrow - Red Dawn Rising
Opeth - Harvest
Opeth - Epilogue
Dream Theater - The Silent Man
Sieges Even - What's Up God
Dream Theater - The Best of Times
Tarja - Enough
Avantasia - The Glory of Rome
Edenbridge - Cheyenne Spirit
Edguy - The Headless Game
Children of Bodom - Children of Bodom
Shape of Despair - Night's Dew
Angizia - Der Kirschgarten oder Memoiren an die Stirn der Kindeszeit
Diablo Swing Orchestra - Balrog Boogie
Diablo Swing Orchestra - D'Angelo
The Mars Volta - L'Via L'Viaquez
Jethro Tull - Bungle in the Jungle
Jethro Tull - Too Old to Rock'n'Roll, Too Young to Die
Jethro Tull - Minstrel in the Gallery
Blackmore's Night - Under a Violet Moon
Loreena McKennitt - The Bonny Swans
Liv Kristine - In the Heart of Juliet

Actually I find it easier to make a list of my favourite albums (trying to limit things to one album per artist):

Abydos - Abydos
Adagio - Sanctus Ignis
After Forever - Prison of Desire
Amberian Dawn - The Clouds of Northland Thunder
(but I love "River of Tuoni", as well)
Andromeda - Extension of the Wish (especially the new version)
Angra - Temple of Shadows
Ayreon - Universal Migrator, Pt. 1: The Dream Sequencer
Beto Vázquez Infinity - Beto Vázquez Infinity
Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle-Earth
Borknagar - Empiricism
Draconian - Turning Season Within
Dream Theater - Images and Words
(but I love all their 90s stuff, especially Scenes from a Memory, and even enjoy their debut loads, on their more recent albums I like mostly the epics, the rest not so much, although BC&SL was better)
Dreamscape - 5th Season
Edenbridge - MyEarthDream
Effloresce - Shades of Fate EP
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Tarkus
Empyrium - Weiland
Epica - The Divine Conspiracy
(but I can't really decide between this one and "Design Your Universe")
Fates Warning - A Pleasant Shade of Gray
Finntroll - Visor om slutet
(by the way, their demo is really cool Mr. Green)
The Gathering - Nighttime Birds
The Gourishankar - 2nd Hands
Haggard - Eppur si muove
(And Thou Shalt Trust ... The Seer is great, too)
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick
Kamelot - The Black Halo
(and Epica ...
King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
Lana Lane - Queen of the Ocean
Leaves' Eyes - Vinland Saga
(I think I like it a tad better than Njord)
Liquid Tension Experiment - Liquid Tension Experiment 2
(a little better than their first one, I think)
Kiko Loureiro - No Gravity
(but Universo Inverso is awesome especially considering it's not normally the kind of music I listen to)
Luca Turilli - Prophet of the Last Eclipse
(King of the Nordic Twilight is great fun, too)
Lumsk - Troll
Marillion - Season's End
Nightwish - Oceanborn
Noche Escandinava II - A Finnish evening from Buenos Aires, Argentina, April 24th 2004
Opeth - Damnation
(if this one doesn't count because it's softer that their usual stuff, I'll choose Blackwater Park Razz)
Orphaned Land - Mabool
Planet X - Quantum
Queen - Innuendo
Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime
Rhapsody of Fire - The Frozen Tears of Angels
Sabaton - Primo Victoria
Scorpions - World Wide Live
(OK, OK, this is a live album, but I don't have most of their studio albums and Sting in the Tail would be a bit too obvious, wouldn't it? Laughing)
Sethian - Into the Silence
Sieges Even - Paramount
Sinergy - Beware the Heavens
(or Suicide By My Side? damn, can't decide, all their albums are great!)
Sirenia - At Sixes and Sevens
Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica
Symphony X - The Odyssey
(because I can't decide between V, The Divine Wings of Tragedy and Twilight in Olympus Razz)
Tarja - What Lies Beneath (Limited Version, German)
Therion - Gothic Kabbalah
(so that I won't have to choose between Lemuria and Sirius B ...)
Tiamat - Wildhoney
Tristania - Beyond the Veil
(again, only a slight edge against Widow's Weeds ...)
Turisas - The Varangian Way
Visions of Atlantis - Eternal Endless Infinity
Wintersun - Wintersun
Yes - Yessongs
(again a live album because I just can't decide ... although for studio albums, I think I'd choose Close to the Edge - or perhaps The Yes album?)
