It's really impossible for me to write just one song, so the only way  can be fair is to make a list (and still, these things change by the minute) in no particular order. Good thread, though :)

Beautiful girl - Bing Crosby

Only the good die young - Billy Joel

American pie - Don McLean (Burn Madonna burn!)

Rullett - Kaizers orchestra

Good old-fashioned lover boy - Queen

If you put a gun to my head, though, I think I'd have to pinpoint American pie.

But picking my all-time favorite songs is always an impossible task... I often tried to make a mix-cd with my all-time favorite songs, but it usually ends up being something like a four disc set because there are just too many songs I can't possibly leave off...
