    Another one: Here Comes the Sun, Beatles.

    In 1964 I watched the Beatles on Ed Sullivan with my parents. My father said it was the worst thing he'd ever seen. Two weeks later they gave me the Meet the Beatles album and a turntable. Thorens td 124.
    10 years later, Abby Road was his favorite album. I still have that album, sure wish I still had the table!

      One of numerous covers of Perpetuum Mobile performed by Tamás Petró:
      "Not a Speaker Designer - Not even on the Internet"
      "If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."

        My personal tastes vary and even more so as I have grown older. For me the "perfect" song is simply one that brings me into the music, where I feel engaged in the lyrics. I guess that is part of the reason I gravitate to those tracks that tell a story. Or edify the soul.

        The night before InDIYana, my wife and I attended "Riverdance" and I found myself drawn into the music. It was emotional, huge, and technically correct. The sound system left a bit to be desired, but the music shown through none the less. My daughter being a budding dancer I am sure helped as well LOL. Yes, I bought the CD and I have been playing it constantly!

        Short list:

        Jim Croce "The Lost Recordings"
        John Fogarty "Premonition"
        Johnny Cash "The Legend of Johnny Cash" (Hurt)
        Kathy Mattea "Coal" (Black Lung)
        Lecrae "Rehab" (Check Me In)
        Ludovico Einaudi "Diverine" (Diverine)
        Phil Collins "In The Air Tonight"
        Rush "Working Man" (Tom Sawyer)
        Toby Mac "This Is Not a Test" (Til The Day I Die)
        And a whole bunch of 80s Metal and hair bands LOL

                Hello Audio Experts!
                How about a perfect "album"?
                How about Bizet, "Carmen". Orchestre du theatre National de L'Opera, Georges Pretre, Nicolai Gedda, and...Maria Callas!

                              I can't say this has the Hong Seal of Approval (HSOA), but

                              Perfection (epscially startinfg at about 2:32) :

                              More perfection:

                              Still more:

                              And one more :

                                The emotional transmission is also a very good criteria (to me). It depend also of your "style tolerance", my list voluntary "black to white"
                                Pink floyd - high hopes
                                Don Felder - heavy metal DwU5LXUmk&index=6
                                oard of canada - new seeds
                                Ayreon -Ride the comet
                                Remeau - Danse des sauvages but the problem with classic is the variety of interpretation for the same track, i will just post this one, but there so much perfect song in the classical register!
                                Dire Straits - Telegraph Road
                                Kavinsky - nightcall
                                Doors -riders on the storm
                                Feu! Chatterton - Boeing
                                and finally the one which transport you somewhere, it make some time, but in the end it always work, just stay patient, tolerant and think to nothing pachanga boys - time,

                                Please all, take the time to post the youtube link, it is so much appreciated for the other to listen directly a new song (you can edit your post :D)

                                But hey, I just think, there is no perfect song to me, it depend of too much criteria that depends of each taste, so the perfection is very subjective. Of course all the songs we post are good, but mine are certainly not perfect for some... if there is a perfect song, to me it is only the silence, because it reveal all the other, but it's a philosophic thing ^^ . Paul are you really in the quest of the perfect song ? or are just a little lazy (or just blocked) to find new good song to play on your (beauty of ) speaker :p? Anyway I like this kind of post, it very rich of value -and cost nothing- for everyone! But hey, think to the youtube audio quality, it is only 192khz... keep in mind :D and play loud real HQ track!
