Post your favorite piece of music. You have to pick the ONE best song/piece you know. It'll be interesting listening to different types of music.

Why can't it be more! Can I post more than one if I switch my best/favorite?

Or any man that breathes on earth.

I have several favorite songs, many by Tom Petty and Men at Work. But here is a song that I like and is calming as well as well as playing deep into the serenity of the seaside.

Mimi, as sung by Beaker and the Electric Mayhem.

Seriously, it's hilarious. Watch it.

I'm convinced that no-one actually clicks on the videos, considering the lack of outcry for the one I posted.

Now I'm going to have to post my actual favorite. Wetblankets, all of you. No fun at all.

(In Google Translate or Babblefish, this post comes out as "Waaah waaah." Don't ask me why.)

Since I don't have A favorite... I'm gonna break the rules and post a couple :P
One's a beautiful cover of an old love song and one is about... staying alive.

I do not now, nor have i ever, had one consistent favorite song. So I randomly chose this one out of my mental list (more like a jumbled-up basket of receipts than a list, but anyway...):

Considered by some to be the greatest piece of music ever written.

This is extremely difficult. I have so many favorites...
Alright. Although not my overall favorite (because I cannot choose just one), I'll go ahead and say "The Unforgiven" by Metallica.

Every lover of music should listen to this 10 minute piece by Tchaikovsky (first vid), start to finish, at least once in their life - best violin I have ever heard, and I listen to classical music regularly.

As for the 2nd vid... The music is so beautiful, listening to it changed my life. I literally cried after hearing it for the first time. It is sublime.

I dare anyone with two ears and an appreciation of music to listen to either of these two pieces and not be incredibly moved.

I guess I'll be the first to post a somewhat upbeat song.

Its pretty long, but the first 4 minutes are the main song. Love the choir coming in before and after the chorus.

The last 7 minutes are a series of short monologues. I'm not sure if they're just random thoughts or if they have some kind of deep meaning.

I'm not one for Classical, but those both blew me out of the water.

I don't get the 1st one, but the 2nd is beautiful

You should post yours as well 000ike.

At the same time, I'm not quite sure how I feel about posting my favorite song. It seems sort of crass to just put something like that up in a forum. Part of what is so beautiful about my favorite pieces of music is that I tend to listen to them during important and emotional instances in my life. They're around at specific times not just shoved around websites and what not.

Anyway, something I like a lot and have been listening to lately:
