Since, we share a lot of tastes in common, might I suggest
Queensrÿche - "Sign of the Times" and Helloween - "The Dark Ride"
for 1997 and 2000? ;)

Technically, it was first released on Rainbow On Stage so it may count for 1977, which opens the door to other possibilities (Van Halen #1, Queen, Priest...) ;)

Good point! In that case however, I'd probably pick "Gates of Babylon" as my favourite track from '78 ;)

1985: The Highwaymen - Highwayman (I'm shocked to see I'm not the only one who chose this)

Incredible song. It might be a cover, but no other version comes even close to what Nelson, Kristofferson, Jennings and Cash did.
