    If I have to pick one it's probably Telegraph Road by The Dire Straits.

    I think this song is perfection. The only song that I've ever used the word perfect to describe.

    I prefer many others, but Neil has SOOO many.
    If picking a Neil track though Southern Man has to be the standout.

    Neil Young - "Cinammon Girl"
    [​IMG] I also like Penny Lane as an alternate but its a bit common.

    One of the greatest songwriters, in a thread about the one perfect song, but everyone has 'their' song. My bid would be for "Only Love Can Break Your Heart." The melody starts strong enough to make for a solid song on its own, but the way it shifts into a few different wonderfully melancholy gears throughout 3:00 minutes, all revolving around the clever title lyric, it's just perfect. And then "Southern Man" follows up, keeping that palate clean and moving. What an album.

    Songs are, largely, situational; there is no all-around 'perfect' song. I do love 'Will You Be There?' by Michael Jackson. It's almost a prayer:
