Favorite all-time song?

If you have a definitive #1, go ahead and tell us.

My favorite song of all-time is 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins

Lots of contenders, but I'll have to with my usual answer. Great video, too. I love how the camera gradually changes focus from the fire onto the singer at the opening.

So many and it depends on the mood.

Can't choose just one.
