Impossible to pick one, but when put on the spot the first thing that comes to mind is Mr Jones by Counting Crows.

Any song by Boards of Canada.
 
 

  
By the way, the first half of the video is amazing.

This would be one of them at least. I personally can't decide just one favorite song, but if I were to try, this song would definitely be a contender.

@Ahmad_Metallic:
The Apostle In Triumph is very good also. That acoustic intro is just facemeltingly awesome.

Act One, Scene One  - The Fall of Troy

#30 Edited by PenguinDust (12511 posts) -
A Night in Tunisia by Dizzy Gillespie.  There are a lot of different versions, many by Gillespie himself, but not just him since the song has become a jazz standard.  My favorite is from the 1954 album "Afro".

Did you know that that acoustic intro was supposed to be the outro of "Requiem" but they made a mistake when they made the record ?
#35 Edited by RWL_MU_OSU (112 posts) -
@Jazz: Best so far. (Although I can definitely get with the Rolling Stones fans).  By far my favorite movie of all-time.  Although I would've chosen Wise Up if I were going for the most impactful Aimee Mann song/moment in Magnolia. 
 
  
    
Also, what in the world are most of these "favorite" songs of all-time?  I haven't heard of probably half of them.  Are they all coming from the non-USA contingent or teenagers that I can no longer relate with?

I've got to agree. Comfortably Numb really is an amazing track. Best guitar riff ever! I get a shiver down my spine every time I hear it. In a good way.

Saw them in the movie I Love You Man and am not a fan.  That kind of rock just bores me.  I am surprised they had escaped me my whole life.

Vastly improved when covered by Scisssor Sisters.  Now it no longer puts me to sleep.

I really like this, but I much prefer his work with The Sleepy Jackson.

I just listened to that Scissor Sisters version of Comfortably Numb.  Yuuuuuuuuuuck.  I'm down for remakes and an interesting take on old songs.  But what the hell did I just listen to?  It's like the Bee Gees and Jamiroquai produced a special needs child.

I couldn't pick one. I think I'll just embed a hauntingly, sad song instead. Don't mind the quality; he sure as hell didn't.

@RWL_MU_OSU:  
I'm European, so..I don't know. I'd go for the teenagers argument. 
I love the whole Magnolia soundtrack, but I've always loved 'One' more than any other song. I tend to hum it to myself when I'm not thinking about anything. 
   Three dog night have a great version too, which oddly enough makes me think of: 
  
  well thats dumb..no embedded play. psht
