If You Could Recommend ONE Song...

...what would it be? If you had to give a recommendation for one song to a person who had never heard music before, what would it be? You can only pick one. And the person isn't a neanderthal or anything, just someone who has been "shielded" from music. Just as intelligent and smart as the public.

This can be your favorite song, one that changed your life, or just one that puts you in a good mood! But remember: this person will only listen to that one song, nothing else!

I think it would be unfair to introduce the person to any good music as it's like giving them a tiny bit of something and then taking it away by not letting them listen to music ever again. Therefore i would let them listen to Guy Sebastian's "Angel's brought me here". This way there is no way they will ever have to worry about what they are missing.

I'm taking this too literally, of course, but if this person were truly shielded from all music, I would start with something really really simple, like you would with an infant.

Row, Row, Row Your Boat, perhaps, or Simple Gifts.

well, i really couldn't narrow it down to one.

so probably;

Mass No. 19, K626 'Requiem' - Lacrimosa (mozart)
au fond du temple saint (bizet)
Rite of Spring (stravinsky)
Bohemian Rhapsody (queen)

in that order.

but, if i had to cut that list down to one... it'd be the mozart.

I would preface it with something like, "You'll never hear a worse song than this, so everything you'll ever hear from now on will be far superior" then subject him or her to "We Built This City" by Starship.

holy crap, that might be the best suggestion so far. I forgot about that song. It's one of my favorites. The beginning is quite possibly the best beginning in any song ever. I like the whole song too, just because it builds up to where it plays the beginning part again over and over
