The problem with this (and most other forums) is that they are highly populated by pimply-faced teenagers pretending to be adults, hence the kinds of response you've gotten so far. If you really want some outstanding opera arias (they're actually not called songs in opera), or classical songs, I would recommend some of the following:
O Mio Babbino Caro, Puccini, sung by Kiri Te Kanawa
Nessun Dorma, Puccini, Luciano Pavarotti
Porgi, amor, Mozart, Kiri Te Kanawa
Dove Sono, Mozart, Kiri Te Kanawa
Four Last Songs, Richard Strauss, Lucia Popp or Kiri Te Kanawa
Songs of a Wayfarer, Mahler, Gerard Souze
Marriage of Figaro Finale, Mozart (IMO, one of the most sublime pieces of music ever written)
O Soave Fanciulla, Puccini, Placido Domingo/Kiri Te Kanawa
Abendstern, Wagner

As you can tell, I'm very fond of Puccini and Mozart and have a long-standing crush on Kiri Te Kanawa. These are all easily accessible pieces of music, readily available online from Itunes or any number of other sources. Good luck with your listening.

An excellent list of great opera arias! And an equally excellent observation about many (most?) of our forum participants. We can really use your input around here if you'd care to participate more, now that you've registered.

Welcome a-board, BTW!

The Four Seasons, absolutely.

Andrea Bocelli singing Puccini's "Nessun Dorma" should be on the list. May want to look into La Boheme for that matter.

I'm a big Mozart fan personally. The finale from Mozart's "Don Giovanni", very dramatic...you will probably recognize the "Queen of the Night Aria" from "The Magic Flute" a bit more readily. The overture from "The Marriage of Figaro" is another very well known, moving, energizing piece.

I think "Rhapsody in Blue" should count as well, but it's tough to find a version one likes. I have the 17 and 11 minute arrangements, and while I like them, they can be a bit tedious after a while if you're not really in the mood to hear it all.
