I'm reluctant to call any song I like my favorite song ever, but I'll just go out on a limb and say "Queen Bitch" by David Bowie. As mentioned in the movie thread, this is largely thanks to Life Aquatic. Also, the times I've covered the song have increased my love for this song tenfold.

I've thought about it a lot, but came to the conclusion I have about 40 favorite songs. I can't think of one that stands out as my absolute favorite. It would be fun making a list of the top 40 songs, because I've listened to a lot of music in my days most would consider less than spectacular. Such as, Sponge, Nickelback, Steel Pulse, Wolfgang Press, Prince (with the NPG, not his good stuff), Jodeci, Pharacyde, Warren Zevon, Screeching Weasle, Clawfinger, Snow Patrol, Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, and my boy Ice Cube.
Two songs do stick out as evoking fond memories (fired up memories) of years' past, and I doubt anyone will recognize these songs by title:
Black Happy - Yes...And It Counts Ministry - Corrosion (I can't sit still listening to this song, ever)
And since one of my favorites came from this board, I will mention I8's recommendation:
A "favorite song" is something that seems like it has the potential to change for me day by day, depending on my mood and current rotation of musical genres. I was tempted to change mine about 10 times before finally settling on Built to Spill's "Else," but I agree, I probably have 40 or so songs that easily stand up next to it and will continue to for years to come.
