    For me it's Mad World, by Gary Jules.

    Man that song is so sad and so strong at the same time. It's one of the very few songs I can listen any time of the day.

    What's your song?

    "Moving On" by Sixpence None the Richer. It hammers me when she starts singing "I will not let them ruin me" over and over.

    Stormy Monday Blues, when done right. Lose yourself in a bog standard blues.

    Clown by Emily Sande, when sung by X Factor contestant Sam Bailey. Awesome singer, major goosebumps.

    Mad World is great, but I still find the line "so if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of.. the hive." very poetic.. (Drive, Incubus)

    Stormy Monday is great, but I've played it 1000+ times and maybe heard 2 people connect with the words. I'm waiting for a true diva to emerge that can actually sing these days to try it. (Gloria Lynne was one of my favs.)

    "Rikki Don't Lose That Number". It's a long story. Let's just say the words speak to me personally. The music is expertly crafted and beautiful and the polish of the musicianship is superb.

    Machine Head - A Farewell To Arms
    "Soldiers are dead, and children have bled. The silence is numb. What have we become?" - For me, this quote says it all. Fantastic song, essentially says that mankind must destroy war before war destroys mankind.

    Harry Chapin - Cat's In The Cradle
    I'm 43. Really listened to the lyrics the other day for the first time. Really struck me. Allowed me to draw parallels between the song and my life. Made me think about what my life would be like if I'd continued my on-the-road employment with a large defense contractor, instead of deciding to find something local. My daughter is almost 3 and is an amazing little girl. I'm not missing any of it. I made the right choice.
