Dakota - Stereophonics

...yeah, big surprise there.

I can't remember when I first heard this song. I do know, though, that it accompanied me through what was probably the most difficult period of my life (in the romantic sense - sad but true) and spoke to me like no other song in the world did. For that reason, Stereophonics is my favourite band (obviously, I discovered eventually that they have a lot of other awesome songs) and Dakota remains my favourite song.

Apart from that, I love the undertone of urgency of the verses that steadily leads to the chorus, an explosion of energy, and Kelly Jones snarling, "You made me feel like the one." This song is a sheer work of musical genius.
