Yeah, just one is impossible. One or more of the following.
- A New Day Yesterday
- To Cry You a Song
- Minstrel in the Gallery
While I like the acoustic stuff, by itself it is nowhere near as powerful as in contrast to the heavy stuff. And vice versa. A really brilliant combination.
Nothing is Easy
I gotta go with Thick As A Brick. Not the single version but the full album version of course.
My memory is that both Ian and Martin have cited this one too.
I am not much of a Tull fan. I don't think they're awful, but not really my thing(prefer early King Crimson more or would rather listen to former Tull guitarist Tony Iommi playing in Sabbath). The best Tull thing I have ever seen is this Finnish flute teacher commenting on Tull:
My Sunday Feeling
So many great songs that I can't pick one.
But I always loved the live version.
Bonus points for having the 4th Doctor on keys.
The attraction of Tull for me was not about individual songs, but I guess everything to this generation is about single downloads of the most digestible popular song or songs. Yuck.
Tull is an ALBUM band.
I mean Bungle in the Jungle was their hit single. Don't Eat the Yellow Snow is Zappa's most popular song. Or Valley Girl. Lucky Man was ELP's.
But to me if you have a favorite song you're not getting them.
Get off my lawn, I guess. Every time anyone discusses music on TV, it's always about somebody's one favorite song. To me you don't even like music if that's what it's about.
Guess I'm just grumpy today.
If I have to answer, it's a 45 minute song, Thick as a Brick.
Really my favorite is all their albums from the classic days. The newer stuff is less consistent but still quite good in places. (e.g., Farm and the Freeway).
That's sort of endearing. At least she's not hating on it.
Too many to list for me. I can give you five of my favorites as of right now though.
- Hymn 43
- Minstrel in the Gallery
- Fallen on Hard Times
- Bungle in the Jungle
Far too many terrific songs to choose just one! Glad I don't have to...
After "This Was", "Stand Up" was the first album with the "new" band that then endured for quite a while...
"Nothing is Easy" was a standout among many great tracks on that record...
My wife hates it when aqualung comes on the radio. I sing aloud by repeating “snot is running down his nose” over and over. Been doing that since I was a child. I guess if I haven’t grown out of it by now....
Aqualung's lyrics paint lurid images in your brain, but Anderson's powerful delivery is what makes it, IMO.
It's Aqualung. What a song. Close second is Teacher. Always have a soft spot for Bungle, it was so big when I was 12 years old listening to a.m. radio.
