This is a very difficult question - NO - It's Impossible for me to answer, for there is so much wonderful music and to select only one piece is quite a challenge. I love Beethoven's Sonata No. 8 - "Pathétique", as well as Frank Sinatra's rendition of "My Way". Barbara Streisand's, "The Way We Were", is another of my favorites.
But I must select only one... and with reflection, the answer now becomes obvious to me....
"It's Impossible" - Performed by Perry Como.

DJChameleon says:

U2 - One. The song that saved the band during the Addicting Baby recording sessions when they were struggling to define a new direction and were having a crisis of faith about still being relevant musically during the Grunge revolution. This was the song that convinced the members of the band they could still create music that mattered. Yes, I'm very passionate about music.
