    It's just like real life. Most of it is depressing with a few transcendent moments.

    It kind of makes me feel like a homer, but I just love that song. I've probably listened to it 1,000 times, and it never gets old.

    Nice thread to necro, there are many great nominations.

    I don't think there is a perfect song but for me there are songs that are perfect for different days, times, feelings etc.

    Last week this one in it's various incarnations from the original to this excellent cover by DAAS

    No real doubt in my mind that this piece is surpassable for me, though there is another rendition I prefer slightly more, though I can't remember the artist.

    Its got everything. Fishermen, booze, heartbreak. I'm probably going to change the video as its a hard song to find a decent youtube of - and yes, its a song that benefits from being live.


    Also: Hallelujah from Tim Minchin and Geraldine Quinn

    An off the cuff cover which is better than the 3 most common covers.
