Theme from Mahogany (Do you know where you're going to) by Diana Ross. Michael Masser (the writer of the music) was always very good at ballads, but for me he outdid himself with this one.

Without a doubt, the song that moves me most is December Song by George Michael. The lyrics almost perfectly describe my childhood Christmases. I never had a father and my relationship with my mother was strained at best, but she always went out of her way to make sure my sister and my brother and I had a good Christmas, even though we were broke. Unfortunately she died 2 years ago at the age of 41 but I still remember everything she did for us and that song sums up my feelings perfectly, even though I can't get through it without crying like a baby.

Of all the tunes mentioned, this is the one I can't get outta my head anymore! Never even noticed the lyrics. And I'm sure a cockroach would still be able to walk with a couple of legs chopped off! Damn, this makes me think of some hotels that I've been to...

^I guess there's different versions of the song. I watched a few clips on youtube that had the line "por que no tiene, por que le falta marihuana que fumar".

Yep, Bob is great. He's the master of lyrics IMO. I could name many of his songs that move me.
