Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven 

This one touches me so much that I want to have it played at my wake when I start up that stairway.

Alone Again (Naturally) by
Gilbert O'Sullivan

 

My first summer job was walking around in the hot Tulsa sun hanging advertisements on people's front doorknobs. As miserable as that might sound, it was actually very peaceful and beautiful... and during a time when things were looking very positive. I had just met my future (& now present!) husband about 6 months before that. This song was constantly playing on the radio all day as I walked through these idyllic neighborhoods. I guess I never really paid attention to how depressing the words actually are, but the melody & instrumentation & vocal sound just really hit that sweet spot in my brain with an amazingly calming, positive effect even to this day. When I hear it now, I'm right back there feeling the warm sun on my skin & feeling those same emotions. I really hope that Gilbert O'Sullivan has positive feelings now too when he hears his song, if it was in any way autobiographical. At the very least, I hope he made some good royalties instead of getting ripped off by record companies, like so many other songwriters have!

Love this one also.  Now that I lost most of my hearing, doesn't sound the same, but evokes those warm emotions.
