    A recent poll asked members to list their "essential albums"
    but some of my favorite songs didn't appear on full length albums. And there are many gems that were the only great song on the entire album. Here's a list of my "can't live without songs".

    "Eve" by Dream Theater (unreleased only available on oop import single).

    "Exile" by Enya

    "Forty-Mile Town" Eric Johnson

    "No Boundaries" Michael Angelo Batio

    "Just like the weather" Suzy Bogguss

    "Mummer's Dance" Loreena Mckennitt

    "Innocence Faded" Dream Theater

    "Hollow Years" Dream Theater

    Not necessarily songs, but...

    • Symphony No. 2 in D Major, by Sibelius (prefer Maazel/Vienna Philharmonic/Decca)

    Appalachian Ballet (Suite), by Copland (prefer Bernstein/New York Philharmonic/CBS)

    As for "songs" ...

    • The Beatles' entire catalog

    Too many, really.

    I agree that there are too many to realistically list... I started this thread thinking it would be relatively easy for me to pinpoint a few songs but then had to stop myself from creating a thousand song list!

    Way too many to list.

    I'll give you the ones that had a significant role in shaping my musical tastes, and in some respects my life. All are from my formative early to mid-teens (not necessarily new at the time) and have a story attached to them.

    Tom Sawyer-Rush

    Bohemian Rhapsody-Queen

    Two Minutes to Midnight-Iron Maiden

    Caught in a Mosh-Anthrax

    Icarus Dream Suite, Op. 4-Yngwie Malmsteen

    One for me would definitely have to be 'You Light Up My Life' by Debbie Boone :wink:

    But seriously...I'd say 'Little Angel, Little Brother' by Lucinda Williams (an incredible talent - catch her live sometime...you won't regret it)

    I have to agree with Jeff Pryor by seconding 'Fade Into You' (wonderful melody) by Mazzy Star

    I'd have to include Yes' 'And You and I'

    My favorite musical "guilty pleasure" REO Speedwagon's 'Roll With the Changes' (the keyboard solo has me playing "air organ" every time)
