If I go back over the years, I would guess it would be the greatest Rock & Roll song ever written and recorded. The anger and violence till drips from the song. Powerful lyrics that still ring true 50+ years later. A searing guitar solo that barely consists on more than one note. Vocals ending in that great falsetto. Yup, that would be the one song for sure.
I tend to get stuck in a loop. I'll do fine for a while and then some song will take me somewhere and I will listen to it until I burn it out. My current obsession is Maria Bethânia - Dindi. I don't understand a word but the emotional attachment is palatable.
Pink Floyd's "Time" from Dark Side of the Moon I find it a good why to test a system, components, and cables. Let's me know in seconds whether everything is as it should be, If I am lucky I enjoy the music, otherwise I fix it.
Let No Man Steal Your Thyme, Pentangle, 1st cut on their 1st album. I love British Folk/Rock although this is more Folk/Jazz. The group is great. Jacqui McShee is a marvelous lead singer and the recording is excellent(as long as you don't have the American Warner Brothers remastering which shows how much bad masteru=ing can destroy an excellent recording). I love the music and the performance and it quickly tells me if I'm going to like the performance of an audio system.
I don't listen to it that much because it wrenches my soul, Priscilla Herdman singing 'And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda' a song about the World War 1 battle of Gallipoli and the strongest anti war song I've ever heard. The horror depicted on the song is magnified by the contrast of the story with Herdman's beautiful voice singing in a straight forward manner. The contrast can be simply chilling.

Years back in my twenties l had a buddy over and he had too many beers while listening to my stereo rig and he passed out in front of my speakers So first thing in the morning l quietly put on Pink Floyd's song Time and really cranked the volume When the clocks started going off, he must leaped up 5 feet in the air!! Me bad?? Anyway l would have to say the song l've played the most would be Comfortabley Numb by Pink Floyd
