You must post a YouTube link to the song.

My nominee is The Main Ingredient’s 1974 classic, “Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely.”

Cuba Gooding, Sr., father of the actor of the same name, was the lead singer, but the horns make this tune a classic. It was featured in the 2011 British spy classic, movie “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.” Enjoy-

My musical tastes have gotten much darker as I have gotten older. And heavier. This is my favorite song of all time. Hide the children:

Slipknot - Left Behind

I love playing my guitar along with that but this live version is even a little better.

This Vince Gill & the boys classic may be one of, if not the, best songs & videos of all time, though. :jester https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjkLf_X88WM

Dean Martin: "Standin' on the Corner Watchin' all the Girls Go By" back when you could record that song. Try it today! Any of Dean's songs were cool!

Dunno about all-time, but this was the best song of the summer of '54. It still brings tears to my eyes, because I went through the same trauma.

I guess the Talking Heads are right out
touring in 1980 with Dolette McDonald and Adrian Belew

what do you do when you're too good to do anything else? join Robert Fripp in King Crimson

No? ok, how about a waltz

ok, counts as appropriate lieder, but easier to accept (loses its jackboot quality) coming from a coloratura

Fischer-Dieskau is considered one of the great singers of the 20th century. Besides, his name is quite apt for the lied. :fished Yes, he was drafted into the Wehrmacht, but he spent most of his time tending horses. I understand he was a stable genius.

another lady with a horn and a great song (likely the most recorded song of all time)
https://youtu.be/BgeVx8QoVaQ

and a different kind of color - regional
https://youtu.be/ESgCiEvY_XM

The radio arrangement of Gershwin, and a cute video
https://youtu.be/oz6UJwcyJyg

Heifetz and Rubinstein, recorded for the radio in 1936
https://youtu.be/W-zZZl4NqHI

Levon and horns
https://youtu.be/11Y987Uf1wY

Just in case you didn't get enough Fripp and Belew
https://youtu.be/7c2H5TkR5Vk

Robert Fripp is probably the one rock musician that will endure as a composer

Close second, All Along the Watchtower, by Jimi Hendix. After all these years, I still find myself cranking the volume anytime I hear it playing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLV4_xaYynY
