If you had to choose one favorite song (just one), what would it be?

Mine is Jon Brion's "So Now Then" from the Magnolia soundtrack. I can't listen to that song without getting chills. It's the most perfect song I've heard. I know I've made all kinds of associations with it by now, but no other song has had the same effect on me.

There is absolutely no way I could choose just one.

There is only one song that I always go back to... it always seems to fit, and that's "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac.
Classic.

First song I heard that discovered The Smiths for me:

mogwai "helicon 1" (not the 'ten rapid' version, download the live version)

it's just flawless yet there's no lyrics. with its soft sounding guitars it could melt any sport jock's cold heart. it's just perfect how it builds up slowly and explodes with sick distortion. and it slows down again.

Sorry I can't pick one, here are 5:

"Can't you hear me knocking" By the Rolling stones, "Tangerine" By Led Zeppelin, "The Blowers Daugher" By Damien Rice, "Helter Skelter" By the Beatles, and "Got Me Under Pressure" By ZZ Top. The last one I always hear in my head whenever I am on a film shoot.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

When you are getting fucked by the big corporations remember to use a condom.

There was a FISH in the perkalater!!!
