UPDATE: Congratulations AnthonyPaul and Katherine Mary!  They’re our Friday Favorites winners.  Please contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to claim your tickets.

I have to admit, I’ve always been a country fan.  I think it’s because I grew up in the middle of nowhere, across the street from a dairy farm, where I saw more tractors than cars pass my house.  Maybe that’s why my favorite song as a kid was “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks.  It’s one of those songs I listened to on a daily basis. 

This brings me to our Friday Favorites Question:  What is your favorite song?  What’s one of the most played tracks on your personal Top 25 list?  It could be a song that you’re playing the hell out of right now, or it could be a song that you’ve had locked into your rotation for years. 

Tell us in the comments section below for a chance to win 2 VIP passes to the Music is Art festival on Saturday, Sept. 17 at Delaware Park in Buffalo.  These VIP passes will give you special access to the backstage area as well as the exclusive day-long party (with food and adult beverages, of course) that only special winners (maybe you?) will have. 

Two commenters will be chosen at random to receive these passes, so make sure you get your favorite song listed below—and tell your friends, especially the ones who you think would take you along as their +1. 

The winners will be announced at 3 p.m. today.  Good luck!

    Lisztomania by Phoenix has to be my all time fav song with over 300 plays on my iTunes. I’ve driven to Philly and Toronto to see them live and have done several interpretive paintings with them as my inspiration playing.

    Finally Begin by the Cold War Kids - this song makes me shiver

    At the moment… I’ve loving The Civil Wars and their song “Barton Hollow”. Its a great mix of jazz, blue grass and some perfect harmonies.
