Little Wing easily. SOS is a great song but LW is out of this world.

Re: Sultans of Swing or Little Wing

Little Wing is the only song on this planet that can deliver me to a state of sober pure ecstasy. Easily my favorite song ever written. The bridge makes me high.

Re: Sultans of Swing or Little Wing

Sultans of Swing is a great song and Dire Straits were a great band but there is no way I'd take that song over Little Wing.

Re: Sultans of Swing or Little Wing

Sultans was freaking cool as hell when I was 12 years old. Now I've heard it more than enough times for 8 lifetimes and I despise it.

Re: Sultans of Swing or Little Wing

I feel I should vote for ''Little Wing'' just because it's JIMI HENDRIX

But, I have to be honest - I enjoy ''Sultans of Swing'' a tab more.

And that's not an insult to ''Little Wing'' or Jimi.

I love both these tunes.

Little Wing is an excellent song. Never thought much of SoS, personally.

Little Wing.
I liked SoS when it came out but it hasn't aged well with me.

I feel the same way. As much as I love Jimi, I actually like covers of Little Wing by Derek, Sting, and SRV as much or more than the original. I'm not a huge Dire Straits fan, I actually think they're kind of boring, but Sultans transcends anything else they ever did IMO.

Re: Sultans of Swing or Little Wing

Little Wing. It's just a superior song. I love every version of it I've heard, Hendrix, Derek and the Dominoes, Sting, Stevie Ray Vaughn. Nothing against Sultans of Swing, but it's not in the same league.
