If an instrumental counts.....I'll go with "Little Martha"- "The Allman Brothers"

Hmm, I would have to go with either Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" (particularly the "Summer" concerto), or the Bohm version of "Sull'aria".

The "Summer" conerto's sonnet:

Beneath the blazing sun's relentless heat
men and flocks are sweltering,
pines are scorched.
We hear the cuckoo's voice; then sweet songs of the turtle dove and finch are heard.
Soft breezes stir the air... but threatening north wind sweeps them suddenly aside.
The shepherd trembles, fearful of violent storm and what may lie ahead.
His limbs are now awakened from their repose by fear of lightning's flash and thunder's roar, as gnats and flies buzz furiously around.
Alas, his worst fears were justified, as the heavens roar and great hailstones beat down upon the proudly standing corn.

ARGHHH SO HARD!!!!

but..maybe...well...

Gouge Away by Pixies

ouge away
you can gouge away
stay all day
if you want to

missy aggravation
some sacred questions
you stroke my locks
some marijuana
if you got some

gouge away
you can gouge away
stay all day
if you want to

sleeping on your belly
you break my arms
you spoon my eyes
been rubbing a bad charm
with holy fingers

gouge away
you can gouge away
stay all day
if you want to

chained to the pillars
a 3-day party
i break the walls
and kill us all
with holy fingers

gouge away
you can gouge away
stay all day
if you want to

My all time favourite has to be O Freunde, nicht diese Töne (Ode to Joy)
The fith movement from Beethoven's 9th Synphony...

O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!
Sondern lasst uns angenehmere anstimmen
und freudenvollere!

Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten feuertrunken.
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brüder
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

Wem der grosse Wurf gelungen
Eines Freundes Freund zu sein,
Wer ein holdes Weib errungen,
Mische seinen Jubel ein!
Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele
Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!
Und wer's nie gekonnt, der stehle
Weinend sich aus diesem Bund.

Freude trinken alle Wesen
An den Brüsten der Natur;
Alle Guten, alle Bösen,
Folgen ihrer Rosenspur.
Küsse gab sie uns und Reben,
Einen Freund, geprüft im Tod;
Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben,
Und der Cherub steht vor Gott!

Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen
Durch des Himmels prächt'gen Plan,
Laufet, Brüder, eure Bahn,
Freudig, wie ein Held zum Siegen.

Seid umschlungen, Millionen.
Dieser Kuss der ganzen Welt!
Brüder! Über'm Sternenzelt
Muss ein lieber Vater wohnen.
Ihr stürzt nieder, Millionen?
Ahnest du den Schöpfer, Welt?
Such ihn über'm Sternenzelt!
Über Sternen muss er wohnen.

And my current Pop/rock Fave...

Waiting for the Sirens Call - New Order

What does this ship bring to me
Far across the restless sea
Waiting for the sirens' call
I've never seen it here before

There she plies a lonely trade
Cutting through the breaking waves
Drifting slowly from her course
She is lost forever more

We all want some kind of love
But sometimes it's not enough
To the wall and through the door
With a stranger on the shore

I won't desert you
I don't know what to say
I really hurt you
I nearly gave it all away

I've got it all wrong
Cause you were not the wrong one
And I don't know where to turn when you're gone
When you're gone

Gotta catch the midnight train
First to Paris then to Spain
Travel with a document
All across the continent

City life is flying by
The wheels are turning all the while
Get on board we can't be late
Our destination cannot wait

All the stars and all the worlds
Filling up this universe
Could never be as close as us
Will never shine as bright on us

I won't desert you
I don't know what to say
I really hurt you
I nearly gave it all away

I've got it all wrong
Cause you were not the wrong one
And I don't know where to turn when you're gone
When you're gone, when you're gone

I won't desert you
I don't know what to say
I really hurt you
I nearly gave it all away

I've got it all wrong
Cause you were not the wrong one
And I don't know where to turn when you're gone

How many times must I lose my way, hey
How many words do I have to say, hey
What can I do just to make you see
That you're so good for a man like
A man like me

"Castles made of sand" or "Bold as love" by Jimi Hendrix. They aren't his most well known songs but they're my favorite. I think most of his songs are great though.

I think no matter how many times I listen to it...

Blink 182 - Going Away to College.

It's mainly about a guy missing a girl as he goes off to college and remembering everything about their relationship. The song can appeal to a lot of situations, just its sad tone.

Definately most favorite, never gets old..

"Up all night", Counting Crows

Is everybody happy now?
Is everybody clear?
We could drive out to the dunes tonight,
'cause summer's almost here.
And I've been up all night,
I might sleep all day.
Get your dreams just right
Let them slip away,
I might sleep all day.
When the roads are clear,
We'll head on out of here,
If you're coming back,
I'll see you in the morning
I'm just staring at
the ceiling staring back at me,
Just waiting for the daylight to come crawling in on me...
And I've been up all night,
I might sleep all day.
Get your dreams just right
And let them slip away,
I might sleep all day.
Ohhh...It's too late to get high now.
[2X]
fix your hair just right
Put your jeans on tight,
Wear a dress, so I can get it off real easy.
'Cause I've been thinking I'd
like to see your eyes
open up real wide the minute that you see me.
If you don't come through,
I wouldn't wait for you.
I understand that everyone goes disappearing,
into the greatest grey
that covers over everyday,
and hovers in the distance and the distance and the distance...
I've been up all night,
I might sleep all day.
Get your dreams just right
let them slip away,
I might sleep all day.
Ohh... It's too late to get high now.
[2X]
Baby I'm not alone
only wanna get high

This is my all time fav song because its on the greatest film ever made The Crow
also The Cure are just amazing


"Don't look don't look" the shadows breathe
Whispering me away from you
"Don't wake at night to watch her sleep
You know that you will always lose
This trembling adored
Tousled bird mad girl... "
But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

"Oh don't talk of love" the shadows purr
Murmuring me away from you
"Don't talk of worlds that never were
The end is all that's ever true
There's nothing you can ever say
Nothing you can ever do... "
Still every night I burn
Every night I scream your name
Every night I burn
Every night the dream's the same
Every night I burn
Waiting for my only friend
Every night I burn
Waiting for the world to end

"Just paint your face" the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
"Oh it doesn't matter how you hide
Find you if we're wanting to
So slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep a while you must be tired... "
But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again
Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream
Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream

Dream the crow black dream...
Dream the crow black dream...
Dream the crow black dream...
Dream the crow black dream...

Nine Inch Nails - the great below

staring at the sea
will she come?
is there hope for me
after all is said and done
anything at any price
all of this for you
all the spoils of a wasted life
all of this for you
all the world has closed her eyes
tired faith all worn and thin
for all we could have done
and all that could have been

ocean pulls me close
and whispers in my ear
the destiny I've chose
all becoming clear
the currents have their say
the time is drawing near
washes me away
makes me disappear

I descend from grace
in arms of undertow
I will take my place
in the great below

I can still feel you
even so far away

the all american rejects : Move along


Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
When you fall everyone stands
Another day and you've had your fill of sinking
With the life held in your
Hands are shaking cold
These hands are meant to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Move along

So a day when you've lost yourself completely
Could be a night when your life ends
Such a heart that will lead you to deceiving
All the pain held in your
Hands are shaking cold
Your hands are mine to hold

Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along

When everything is wrong, we move along
When everything is wrong, we move along
Along, along, along

When all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through

Right back what is wrong
We move along

At this point I'd have to nominate John Frusciante's I'm Around as my all time favourite song.. I'm sure though that will change.

Really, that's such a difficult question for me... there's so much to choose from :p

Well in the end, it would probably be a fierce battle between:

The Killers - Mr. Brightside (everyone knows that one, so no lyrics)

and

Snow Patrol - You're All I Have:

Strain this chaos turn it into light
I've got to see you one last night
Before the lions take their share
Leave us in pieces, scattered everywhere

Just give me a chance to hold on
Give me a chance to hold on
Give me a chance to hold on
Just give me something to hold onto

It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear cos you are all that I have
It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear cos you are all that I have

You're cinematic razor sharp
A welcome arrow through the heart
Under your skin feels like home
Electric shocks on aching bones

Give me a chance to hold on
Give me a chance to hold on
Give me a chance to hold on
Just give me something to hold onto

It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear cos you are all that I have
It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear cos you are all that I have

There is a darkness deep in you
A frightening magic I cling to

Give me a chance to hold on
Give me a chance to hold on
Give me a chance to hold on
Just give me something to hold onto

It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear now you are all that I have
It's so clear now that you are all that I have
I have no fear now you are all that I have

There..

I love Radiohead - No surprises
Radiohead - No Surprises Lyrics

A heart that's full up like a Landfill,
a job that slowly kills you
bruises that won't heal.

you look so tired_nhappy,
bring down the government,
they don't..they don't speak for us.

I'll take a quite life, a handsnake some carbon monoxide,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,no alarms and no surprises,
silent,
silent.

This is my final fit, my final bellyache, with..
no alarms and no surprises,no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises, please...

Sucha a pretty house, such a pretty garden.
no alarms and no surprises,no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises, please

I had one, until I met the artists, their friends on the net, and their closer family and friends. Because they're egocentric and they hate me. So there, now I'm bitter, driven, and angry with them. Not to do anything to them, but to show thier fans, I'm not what they call me.

I have no choice either way. If it's not on the net, it's at work, at the book/cd store, etc. I'm scared to go to a play or concert or a place of worship because of them. Hope your proud of yoursleves. Also, congradulations on planning the wedding two to three years in advance. Your stil failures, because you can't make me quit, and the more you try. Eventually, someone will see you for what you are, and prove me right. You also still failed at getting me to quit my job, yet.

Hope it explains everything to you for those not involved.

Manic Street Preachers - A Design For Life

If you havent heard this try a Youtube search, you wont regret it.
Its the story behind my signature also
)

Lyrics - ' A Design For Life '

Libraries gave us power
Then work came and made us free
What price now for a shallow piece of dignity

I wish I had a bottle
Right here in my dirty face to wear the scars
To show from where I came

We dont talk about love we only want to get drunk
And we are not allowed to spend
As we are told that this is the end

A design for life
A design for life
A design for life
A design for life

I wish I had a bottle
Right here in my pretty face to wear the scars
To show from where I came

We dont talk about love we only want to get drunk
And we are not allowed to spend
As we are told that this is the end

A design for life
A design for life
A design for life
A design for life

We dont talk about love we only want to get drunk
And we are not allowed to spend
As we are told that this is the end

A design for life
A design for life
A design for life

For me, It would have to be "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. Those lyrics spoke to me in such a way. Not to mention, the guitar part was incredible...and as a musician, I love it.

"Ten Years Gone" by Led Zeppelin or "Sometimes Salvation" by the Black Crowes.

There are too many great songs I love to pick a favorite.

"Ten Years Gone"-Led Zeppelin

Then as it was, then again it will be
Though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

Like stars of fortune
Each has separate rays
On the wings of maybe
Down in birds of prey
Kind of makes me feel sometimes
I didn't have to grow
But as the eagle leaves the nest
He got so far to go

Changes fill my time
Baby, that's all right with me
In the midst I think of you
And how it used to be

Did you ever really need somebody
And really need 'em bad
Did you ever really want somebody
The best love you ever had
Do you ever remember me, baby
Did it feel so good
'Cause it was just the first time
And you knew you would

Turn the eyes and I sparkle
Senses growing keen
Tasting love along the way
See your feathers preen
Kind of make you feel sometimes
Didn't hard to grow
We are eagles of one nest
The nest is in our souls

Vixen in my dreams with great surprise to me
Never thought I'd see your face the way it used to be
Oh darlin', oh darlin' (Repeat)
I'm never gonna leave you, I'm never gonna leave you
Ten years gone, holdin' on, ten years gone (Repeat
