Sorry, was from me ... was a toss up between that, Unknown Legend by Neil Young or Creep by Radiohead.

Mine is

Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen

Taken me ages to decide, I know, but it was so hard separating that one from Darkness on the Edge of Town... still not sure I've made the right choice.

Motorcycle emptiness is not in my top five. Sorry - great anthem.. but you have to hear it live to appreciate it fully and we're talking about a recorded CD here.

I think we need about another 8 tracks to fill a CD, but it's looking good so far (not so sure about Robbie Williams, but this is supposed to cater to us all).

I share your doubts about the Robbie Williams Rolling Eyes But if the alternative is Hermans Hermits...

If more tracks are needed - does that mean we can nominate a second choice?

Don't cry Sad I'm not saying there's anything in particular wrong with the song - I happen to quite like it - but surely in the entire history of music, you could've come up with something a little more...special.
