Music Monday: My Favorite Song by Foo Fighters


“Best Of You” from the 2005 album “In Your Honor”

It wasn’t easy to pick just one Foo Fighters song as my favorite. In fact, I had to go back and forth between this song and “The Pretender” from my favorite Foo Fighters album “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace”

The Best Gets To The Top

Having seen Foo Fighters live many times over the years, there are so many songs that you really look forward to heading live. Concerts after 2005, “Best Of You” has been performed as an anthem normally towards the end of the show. The audience sings along prompted by Dave’s encouragement.

And there is “The Pretender” which started some live shows after it came out in 2007. A very powerful song and one that carries it’s own crowd pleasing anthem status. But alas, it wasn’t the best.

This is just “Best Of You”

When you have Prince covering your song at the best Superbowl halftime show ever, that has to stand for something. And it did for me.
