'''40' really is it. Especially when I've been in crowds singing it outside the arena and in the parking lot after the show ended. It just kept going on.'' —Marisa
''I second this, if only because the audience is *expected* to sing 'How long...' until the end while Larry plays, and that always ends the show? It's a very emotional thing.'' —Kate

BILLY JOEL'S ''PIANO MAN''
'''Piano Man,' without a doubt. Last summer I saw Billy Joel and Elton John perform at Citizens Bank Park in Philly and they closed with this song, just two legends with their pianos. They let the entire stadium sing the last chorus. Singing along to 'Piano Man' with 50,000 other concertgoers was a magical concert moment?I'll never forget it.'' —Marissa
'''Piano Man,' Billy Joel. The crowd can sing it by themselves with next to no help from Billy. What could be better?'' —Jenn P.

THE ROLLING STONES', ''YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT''
''1989, Steel Wheels tour. I was 16, and I'd never heard that one before but apparently, I was the only one in the stadium who hadn't because Mick sang, 'Now you can't...' and the entirety of Veterans Stadium sang back 'ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT.' Everyone knew every word. Still get chills thinking of it. Was one of those moments at a concert where you're MOVED, you know? I thought it was so DEEP. I mean, it is meaningful, but, you know, deep in the way a 16-year-old thinks it is. You were being told one of life's truths by the greatest rock & roll band in the world, and getting your 16-year-old mind blown!'' —Sheila

THE EAGLES', ''DESPERADO''
''For me the best sing-along at a concert was the Eagles singing 'Desperado.' While most songs are big anthems, everyone in the arena stood, swayed and sang their hearts out. It was an amazing.'' —Kaiulani

PRINCE'S ''PURPLE RAIN''
''This isn't even my favorite Prince tune, but it's impossible not to 'Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo!' along with him as he delivers that sizzling guitar solo at song's end. Add a little sprinkling of rain, and consider your mind officially blown.'' —Marc

RADIOHEAD'S ''KARMA POLICE''

ELTON JOHN'S ''TINY DANCER''
''Saw Elton in January...'Crocodile Rock' was a huge sing-along-fest. 'Tiny Dancer' was good. In fact, it was all good. It was two and a half hours of Elton sitting at the piano and singing his favorite songs.'' —Kaiulani
