    Can i say without a shadow of a doubt in my mind, that perhaps the greatest song of all time would be Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, i mean by god it is so great, i love to sing to it, its a song that when it comes on in the car u wind all the windows down turen it up full bore and go for it.

    Or is that just me :)
