Some Great Moments

These are just some of my favourite 'moments' in music, not necessarily whole verses or anything. DISCLAIMER: my taste isn't very good.
20Porcupine Tree
Buying New Soul

The third and final chorus, with all of the layering and the harmonies making it probably the most emotional moment in PT's (already fairly emotional) catalogue.
19Stevie Ray Vaughan
Lenny

The first strum of that opening chord.
18Louis Armstrong
What A Wonderful World

The introduction is one of the most evocative I've ever heard, and sets the mood instantly and perfectly.
17Opeth
Bleak

The transition into the bluesy acoustic section is amazingly done.
16Sigur Ros
Untitled 8

Soooo emotional, and amazing every time.
15Thomas Dybdahl
From Grace

The vocal melodies in the chorus.
14Debussy
Clair De Lune

The very ending is the most perfect finale possible to probably my favourite classical piece.
13Tool
Pushit

'I must persuade you another WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY'
12Miles Davis
So What

When the saxophones first come in in the introduction and you remember how fantastic the whole album ahead of you is.
11Brian Eno
Always Returning I

All of it. Seriously, this isn't cheating; it's repetitive.
10Michael Jackson
Billie Jean

The intro. It's basically perfect.
9Dream Theater
Octavarium

As much as I like to feel like I've 'grown out' of this band, the 'trapped inside this Octavarium section of this is truly incredible.
8Bruce Springsteen
Born To Run

'ONE TWO THREE FOUR!' is one of the most badass moments in musical history.
7The Tallest Man On Earth
King of Spain

'I wanna be THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE...' 'nuff said.
6John Mayer
Slow Dancing In A Burning Room

The solo at the end of any version of this song is mindblowingly good.
5Metallica
Outlaw Torn

The choruses on the S&M version of this are stunning.
4Sufjan Stevens
Come On! Feel The Illinoise!

'I cried myself to sleep last night' is just so layered and beautifully arranged that I practically swoon every time I hear it.
3Bob Dylan
Simple Twist Of Fate

'She was born in Spring, and I was born to LAAAAAAATE!'
2Radiohead
There There

The whole outro from the amazing 'there theeeeeeeeeeeeere!' yell onwards is spellbinding.
1Dave Matthews Band
Seek Up

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S2G9VQhSI8 It doesn't get much better than the passage starting at 2 minutes in there. My favourite section of music ever.
