What are your favorite arias (and songs, if you would like) from classical/modern operas? Please post a You-tube video of the aria/song as well.
"Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto." --Terence

"I believe that the mind can be permanently profaned by the habit of attending to trivial things, so that all our thoughts shall be tinged with triviality."--Thoreau

My favorite aria would probably be "Stride la vampa" from Il Trovatore, "Vedi le fosche notterne" from the same opera, "Si! Tremenda vendetta" from Rigoletto, and so on.

I'm a big Verdi fan, and I love his melodies and tune-ful arias.

"I am the Very Model of a Modern Major General" from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance"

It starts at about :50. It's just a goofy song that I originally heard on a show called Frasier
I don't discriminate....I hate everybody.

There also happens to be second-round tier arias that I like:

"Celeste Aida" from Aida,
"Mal reggendo" from Il Trovatore,
Wotan's Abschied and his Farewell from Wagner's Der Walkure,
and so on.

Well, this one isn't exactly bad…

This is "Di Quella Pira" from Giuseppe Verdi's "Il Tovatore", I assume.
