Mine is number 1,Keane, somewhere only we know, and 2, Supertramp, take the long way home. Whats yours?
My top two are: All Along the Watchtower, the Jimi Hendrix version. Great lyrics complemented by Hendrix’s arrangement. The biblical references from the Book of Isaiah are perfectly matched by Hendrix’s guitar work referencing the fall of false idols.
Schumann’s, In der Nacht is a sorrowful delight. The lyrics - I think - translated from a 16th century poem by August Graf von Platen. Who often wrote in ghazal form, a form of poetry that can be traced back to the bedouin of the pre-Islamic desert of Arabia. A period that fascinates me. The version by Leslie Guinn, Jan DeGaetani and Gilbert Kalish is by far the best, in my opinion.
This is so difficult, depending on mood
When happy it is Queen "Radio Gaga" and Status Quo "Mystery Song".
Sombre Shaw/Blades "The End" and Queen "Who Wants to Live Forever"
Down and it has to be the Twisted Sister double bill "I Am I'm Me" and "We're Not Gonna Take it" which reminds me do much of my life growing up and how far I have traveled.
The problem for me is that there is also so much great music out there from the tune to the lyrics. When a tune hits me then I cannot get it out of my head.
Always Queen for me ELO ,Genesis ,Rush, Iron Maiden ,Black Sabbath ,Motörhead to name a few and Eccentric1 can’t beat a bit of Twisted Sister as for my favourite tracks

Do you guys ever feel like you have really extreme tastes in music? I do because apart from Supertramp and Keane I also like Morrissey-the Smiths, depeche mode and ACDC thunder if I'm fired up, I think my music sums me up Odd lol
I like ELO as well
Radio Gaga thats a good track
I also enjoy Stevie Wonder Leftfield and Dave Brubeck
And Chas and Dave Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur
Also Gill Scott Heron
I’m into music that I can use to express my emotions and that I can relate to through the lyrics. I listen to NF who has multiple songs that are emotional like how could you leave us.
Oh yes, mood dependent I go to the heavier "punk" sounds of Wildhearts, Metallica, Volbeat, etc and other times soft (Thunder, ACDC, Pink Floyd, etc) and even chart stuff (Avicii, Duran Duran, T'Pau, Whitney Houston, etc). For some fun I put on some Kevin "Bloody" Wilson and "Comic Strip Presents" Bad News
