Writer's Block: Name that tune

Is there any song you'll never grow tired of hearing? If so, what is it, how long have you loved it, and why?

There are several, the oddest of which is Madonna's La Isla Bonita which has always stuck in my mind as emblematic of my Shamanic training in Peru and elsewhere in Latin America (probably due to the San Pedro).

"Back in the day" I used to listen to Led Zeppelin's Kashmir over and over again to get ready to hit the clubs, so I know that bears endless repeating.

There are various old Goth tunes which are likely in this category, with things like Bauhaus' Bela Lugosi's Dead, Type-O Negative's Black Number One, The Sisters of Mercy's
Dominion/Mother Russia
, Lucretia My Reflection, or This Corrosion, and Joy Division's She's Lost Control, Love Will Tear Us Apart, and In A Lonely Place.

Some Punk classics slip in, such as Gang Of Four's What We All Want, which was another pre-club fave.

I also have a soft spot for a lot of the "new romantic" bands, but I wonder if these were looped they'd lose some of their charm, assorted cuts by Spandau Ballet, ABC, etc.

Of course there are scads of "Classic Rock" tunes, from Black Sabbath's Solitude or Spiral Architect, Jefferson Airplane's Eskimo Blue Day or Martha or Today, The Zombie's Time Of The Season, Blue Öyster Cult's Astronomy, and probably a dozen things by Jethro Tull.

So, yeah, there are songs like that!
