There are just too many to make up ones mind.

My favorite Chris Cornell Album though is 'Euphoria Morning' so it would certainly come from that album though.

I say every Soundgarden song. And some of his solo stuff like Euphoria Morning, The Keeper, Promise, Cochise, Like a Stone, Original Fire, Revelations, & Be Yourself.

Chris Cornell is my top singer in best singers.

Yeah, in fact I just listened to it at work the other day! 8)

It is a great retrospective. Hard to believe that Chris Cornell has been making music for like more than 20 years!

Man if only like Kurt Cobain and Andrew Wood would have had a chance to make such huge awesome discographies too, that would have been sweet! :mrgreen:

This has got to be "Beyond the wheel".

Yeah, I agree with submarine. He just gives it all he's got in "Beyond the Wheel".

For me it's "Nothing To Say", "Slaves And Bulldozers" or "Superunknown" (the wail during the guitar solo :shock: ).

Actually anything off Badmotorfinger.
Debut album out now, listen to the whole thing on Soundcloud here ...

It's all about Tighter & Tighter and Like Suicide. Both showcase both of his registers extremely well. While I like songs like Black Rain and Birth Ritual and Beyond the Wheel, I don't really like his dogwhistle frequency vocals too much. I like sticking to his mid/mid-high the most because it's just so damn good.

I like the demonic type of vocal work he does in Big Dumb Sex.

But I would have to say Spoonman. Both the verses and the chorus just sweep me away.

I also like the underrated Holy Water.

Oh and by the way how many of you have seen this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZC7LEWPzH4

If I had to choose one or two i'd go for "Four Walled Walls" ...the chorus towards the end is immense. The 2nd half of that song seems as if Cornell has been possessed and reaches an even higher level.
