Mine would be "Watching You"  - Melissa Etheridge.

What would yours be and why?

Robert Palmer's "She Makes My Day". It's perfect.

The answer would probably depend on when you asked me, but today it would be "Trip the Light" by Garry Schyman, sung by Alicia Lemke, words by Ms. Lemke and Matt Harding..

It is such a joyful song, and accompanies "Where the Hell is Matt" 2012.

Just the song here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIl8Cqx9_2U

I'm old school, I guess. It would be a toss up between " bridge over troubled waters", " puff the magic dragon" or "let it be"

I'm torn right now. It's a toss up between Beethoven's 7th Symphony and Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis. I'd probably go with Beethoven, though, just to have some variety between movements.

I'm more like you. I would go with Richard Rodgers' Victory at Sea or Grand Canyon Suite composed by Ferde Grofe'.

Zadok the Priest by G. F. Handel - It's just so majestic and beautiful.

Oh, you see, I hadn't thought of classical. Now I want to change my choice for Copland's Appalachian Spring. I don't think I could go the whole rest of my life without ever hearing that again.

I honestly can't choose.  It would be one of the songs that pull on my emotions.  Here is a big one, for me.
