    Having heard implementations through anecdotes, and seen it in practice on Spotify, seems like an idea which could translate to here.

    The idea is as follows:

    If you could recommend one track of music to someone. One, single track, out of everything you've ever enjoyed; what would you recommend? Be it your favorite track, a track you think everyone would enjoy, one you find technically astounding, or hilarious, whatever your reasoning may be. Just one. Think hard.

    The rules are as follows:
    • You only get to post once.
    • You cannot edit your post after it's been submitted (exception will be made if the edit is made within a couple minutes of original posting, to fix a typo or syntax error).
    • Your post may contain any or all of, but nothing outside of these things: A) The name of the track, album, artist, year B) an embedded YouTube video of this track C) if the track is from a live performance, information concerning the venue and event where the performance took place. D) a short description of why you picked this track (let's say 300 character maximum)
    • No commentary of any kind is allowed. Nor anything which does not explicitly fall under what is defined in the previous rule.
    • If any of the above rules are violated, your posts will be removed and you will be barred from the thread.
    The topic will be locked after a period of time, mostly likely 3-6 months depending on activity. At which point a new thread will be made, and you're free to make another post in that thread with a new selection; this also applies to those barred from a previous thread due to a rule violation. All locked threads will be preserved in the OP of the subsequent thread.

    I'd recommend Pendulum's cover of The Catylyst by Linkin Park. It was one of the few live tracks I actually enjoyed. It was performed on BBC's Live Lounge.

    It was one of the first Daft Punk songs I've heard and enjoyed. To this day, it's still my favourite song from them.

    Artist: Oceansize
    Album: Everyone Into Position

    [youtube]RYAF_MgV0JA[/youtube]

    Oceansize(the best modern prog band ever) has a greatly diversified style. I think this song effectively displays their amalgamation of intense heavy rock, experimentative prog and beautiful ambient post-rock, and their intricate and complex song-writing ability. It was a difficult choice though.

    Falling deeply in love with someone who doesn't know you even exist.
    A most poignant dichotomy, spelled out perfectly in song.

    I had to pick between a Bowie song, a Queen song, or a Pink Floyd song. I figured this is the closest I can get to having them all down.

    Still... too many good songs to choose from.

    Even if the album Kid A may be their masterpiece and there may be better songs than this (especially with a band like Radiohead), this ballad filled with extremely symbolic lyrics and Thom Yorke's incredible vocals just struck the most personally. The more minimalistic ballad style just connected more effectively with me than most other Radiohead songs.

    My favourite track from a brilliant album. If you were to compare the album to sex, this song would be the orgasm.

    So soulful, so heartfelt. Nina Simone was and still is, in a class of her own.
