    Have 3...

    Angelyne by a guitarist from Austin named Ian Moore. If you haven't heard him, especially his live music, you should.

    A cover of "The wind cries Mary" by John Mayer, recorded live, of course.:D

    A cover of "All along the watchtower" by the Dave Matthews Band. He does this frequently in concert, and this particular version is about 11 minutes long and has the Fish guitarist sitting in.

    Gee , there are so many I used to listen to back in the day. I would have to say "Highway Star" by Deep Purple, but the live version from the "Made in Japan" album.
    I also liked "Cross Eyed Mary" by Jethro Tull. "And You an I" by Yes was also a favorite.

    Your last two should be on my list too. Ian Anderson can do no wrong. ;) :D
    I just read that next month will be Tull's 40th anniversary. I suddenly feel old. :D

    If I had to pick just one... I guess I have to go with Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly." If I could have any more, Pearl Jam's "Yellow Ledbetter" would be up there, and "Disarm" by the Smashing Pumpkins (I'm a sucker for violin, especially in a rock song...).

    Hank Williams Sr - I can't Help It (if I'm Still in Love with You). Don't know why but it is just my favorite.

    Another song that I forgot to mention that I really liked a lot - "Last Days of May" by Blue Oyster Cult from their first album.

    You beat me to it!
    I like SOME of every type of music, and there are GREAT ones here.

    My all time favorite has to be Mike + The Mechanics doing Silent Running, and that is mainly for the lyrics, which are absolutely haunting to me.

    Nobody here can possibly not like these:

    Take the children and yourself
    And hide out in the cellar
    By now the fighting will be close at hand
    Don't believe the church and state
    And everything they tell you
    Believe in me, I'm with the high command

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    There's a gun and ammunition
    Just inside the doorway
    Use it only in emergency
    Better you should pray to God
    The Father and the Spirit
    Will guide you and protect from up here

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Swear allegiance to the flag
    Whatever flag they offer
    Never hint at what you really feel
    Teach the children quietly
    For some day sons and daughters
    Will rise up and fight while we stood still

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Without a doubt, "Nessun Dorma" as performed HERE by the greatest tenor of our generation, if not the 20th century. (Well, maybe second to Marlin).

    It's only 3 minutes but everyone should listen to it at least once in their lives.

    Back in the 60's I used to eat lunch everyday at a burger stand near where I worked, and play two songs on the Juke Box,

    Simon and Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence" and

    The Mama's and the Poppa's "California Dreaming"

    To this day when I hear either of those songs, I can still taste those hamburgers!!!

    I also liked just about anything form CCR.

    If I had to nail it down to a single song ever... but then it's that unquestionably.
