There's a certain appeal to being able to say you have a favorite song; it's like having a signature drink. When asked my favorite anything, I'm always tempted to subcategorize. It's very hard to narrow down my favorite food, but I can name my favorite egg preparation (poached) or my favorite fruit (can I, though? I think it's nectarines, but what about cherries, and what about Champagne mangoes?). Favorite movie is tough, but I know my favorite Woody Allen movie (Manhattan). My favorite They Might Be Giants song is probably "Ana Ng." My favorite karaoke song is "Father Figure" (though "Wanted Dead or Alive" is good too). But my favorite song, full stop? It requires a certain decisiveness. Today, driving back from the grocery store, I decided that -- today, at least -- my favorite song is "There Is a Light that Never Goes Out." Earlier this year I learned that poetry goddesses Sommer Browning, Ana Bozicevic, and Cindy King all have the same favorite song, "Carolyn's Fingers" by Cocteau Twins. They say you only need 23 people in a room before the odds that two people there share a birthday shrinks to 1 in 2. Do any of my reader share my rapturous love for this song?
