Ineteresting. There's one track on this album that I almost detest and one I don't like very much. I like a lot pretty much all the others though.
 
Anyway, I originally voted for Open Car, way back. Now it would have been a tie between Deadwing and Start Of Something Beautiful.

Hey, nobody voted in this poll in the entire year 2008!  Huh About time it was bumped, lol.  
 
I voted on ASBNH almost exactly three years ago, as a noob to this forum. You would think time changes things but nope, not in this case - it's still by far my favourite track by the band. In fact, I love it much more now than I did back in Jan 06, when I was still fairly new to it. What can I say, the song is like fine wine... And to me it makes PERFECT sense that it has hogged nearly half of all the votes. I'm convinced it will only grow in stature in the coming years, and it's actually quite thrilling to witness that firsthand. With my other fav bands I always tend to be very late to the party, discovering great gems and records years and years after the fact...  
 
Going to listen to Deadwing, the record, now  Smiley

my track is mellotron scratch, to me that's the best song they ever made. especially the second part of the song is absolutely brilliant. I always thought it was a bit strange that it is not a fans favourite. I thought it was strange that they did not have it on the Arriving Somewhere dvd.
 
 every time i listen to it, I like it even more, and I already listened to it a couple 100 times or something like that, it still growes on me!

The Start of Something Beautiful.
 
No question about it, it's my favourite track and has been since the beginning for me. I don't foresee it changing any time soon. Deadwing is my favourite album, so there are many tracks I will sit and listen to over and over in one sitting. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here is just fantastic, but The Start of Something Beautiful just has an edge over it. I can't quite explain what. But I love it.

"The Start Of Something Beautiful" if I have to pick one - the album is best as a whole (and in 5.1 of course)
 
I don't understand why "Arriving Somewhere But Not Here" is on top, it's easily my least favourite song on Deadwing.  
Intro, build-up and Mikael's solo are just perfect, but the heavy part (with the open hi-hat) kills it for me...

Arriving Somewhere obviously. 2nd would probably be Mellotron Scratch. It really seems to carry the amazing momentum Arriving Somewhere has. The last 2 minutes are incredible.
 
The whole album is excellent though.

I've choose Open Car, but many songs of this album are in the same line of likeness for me. Arriving Somewhere... was also a good choice for me.

I've actually changed my mind from Arriving Somewhere to Deadwing.
 
It is absolutely amazing. It doesn't get nearly enough credit (honestly, looking through this thread, there is not much mention of the song), especially as an epic long track. And while the whole of Deadwing is fantastic, the title track is just far ahead of the rest.

@ saturninebear: I chuckled at that, I like it much better, ahaha.  
 
 I never knew the meaning of it until about a few days ago. No need to be hostile and throw the yankee under the bus. Wink It stands for "gonna have to disagree with you there."
