There's this thing on Facebook called the 30 Day Song Challenge (why it's a "challenge," I don't know) and it involves listing a corresponding song to a specific day's requirement. For instance, day one might be "Name the song you first got your ass handed to you in Street Fighter II in the arcade." In which case, I'd have to say Guile's Theme. Both because it's true and because Guile's theme goes with everything. If I were a less honest person, I'd just put 30 videos of Guile's Theme right here and be done with it.
But I don't play by those hipster rules! And I certainly don't play by Facebook's rules either! In fact, why don't you just go ahead and bite me, Facebook? I'm taking the challenge and I'm taking it all right now!
day 01 - your favorite song
This is a tough one because I literally have to isolate my absolute favorite song of all time. And, when it comes to those kinds of freedom's, my favorite often changes. I sometimes forget a song or remember one in pieces. So, to illustrate what I consider to be the best piece of music as well as a favorite of mine, I will list the following as my absolute favorite song because it's the oldest piece of music I like.
Moonlight Sonata, Ludwig Van Beethoven.
