fuller list, off the top of my brain:
Parliment - The Silent Boatman (bagpipes)Autechre - Silverside (the ending, where you finally get to hear the entire melody)Soul Coughing - Lazybones (the entire thing is so damn heavy)Devo - Race of Doom (don't know why. something about the way the synths intersect with the rhythm gets me)ELP - From the Beginning (everything about it is gorgeous, but especially Emerson's solo in the end)Faust - No Harm (the scream at the end)Underworld - Most 'Ospitable (the whole thing)Underworld - Jumbo ("Telephone breath between us/there are no borders between us/Only these wires")Happy Mondays - Dennis and Lois ("Honey, how's your breathing/If it stops for good we'll believe it")Kraftwerk - Neon Lights (the onslaught of shimmering major chords that make up the second half)Yellow Magic Orchestra - Gradated Gray (great song with an inexplicably creepy atmosphere)The Books - Getting the Job Done (when the vocals come in)Can - Oh Yeah (when the rhythm section really kicks in, 2 minutes in)Gary Numan - Complex (mostly the intro, but really everything)Neu! - Isi (c'mon, nobody can disagree with this)Michael Jackson - Stranger in Moscow (already mentioned, but holy cow, this is a monster)Boredoms - 7 (from VCN - when the guitar chords finally come in, braaang brooong)Harry Nilsson - Morning Glory Story (gosh the vocals are pretty on this one)Todd Rundgren - When the Shit Hits the Fan ("I think I have to get my ass back to Sunset Boulevard")
#1 tune along these lines (the one that makes me feel funny the whole time) is here
