■ Best music tracks ever!

You know what they say, tomorrow is what today was yesterday. Whatever one may mean by "best music ever", it must include tracks that stand the test of time — they are not ephemeral. You can hear them time and again and cannot get bored with them. Some tunes you love first time, others grow on you. A few years back I presented a list of best music albums. Here is a list of individual tracks that made a mark on me for one reason or other. If you are into music like me, I am sure you will find lots to appreciate in this collection. Do check out the special tunes marked with a star.
DMCA notice. I am an old timer so I own all these tracks in LPs and CDs. I have searched youtube for publicly available links to them. I don't know who or why put them there. Some of these won't play in all countries, and may evaporate without notice. Youtube quality often leaves much to be admired.
ps. Times change, so I added Spotify playlists for all the tracks I could find. Spotify doesn't have everything, and neither does YouTube, but between the 2 of them you can grab my favorites.
