Stairway To Heaven -- Led Zeppelin
Turn Turn Turn -- The Byrds
Sounds Of Silence -- Simon & Garfunkel
A Day In The Life -- The Beatles
Symphony #5, 1st Movement -- Beethoven
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik -- Mozart
Toccata and Fugue in D Minor -- Bach
Carmina Burana "O Fortuna" -- Orff

But, if I can bend the rules a bit... the winner is: the entire "Dark Side Of The Moon" or "The Wall" albums by Pink Floyd (since you can make an argument that both albums are pretty much one continuous piece of music).

How about "The Greatest Television Theme Songs"?

Top 10 would all be Norman Lear shows.

Most people are familiar with the stirring piece of music O Fortuna, but how many know what they hell they are singing about:

O Fortune,
like the moon
you are changeable,
ever waxing
or waning;
hateful life
first oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
poverty
and power
it melts them like ice.

Fate – monstrous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
you are malevolent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to nothing,
shadowed
and veiled
you plague me too;
now through the game
I bring my bare back
to your villainy.

Fate is against me
in health
and virtue,
driven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
So at this hour
without delay
pluck the vibrating strings;
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me!

Peace out
The greatest song ever written not coincidentally is also the greatest concert footage ever shot.....

sorry but spinal tap forever destroyed my ability to take the "rockumentary/concert video" seriously ever again

A maze of twisting little passages, all different

Those aren't the English lyrics.

These are the English lyrics:

Keeping it simple:

Spent many HS dances closing them out to Stairway to Heaven, I have piped the song into the back yard and lower level at the end of my boys parties this summer. Hilarious!

They figured it out and wrapped (pun intended I think) things up before the lights went back up to 100%.

This song spans generations and so I vote for it!

Caught a soundtrack score with The Sopranos one episode. It kinda summed everything up pretty succinctly.
