John Cale - "Paris 1919" (1973)

There's a sense in listening to this that no one had taken the revival of Romanticism that had originally cropped up in late '60s rock music as seriously as Cale does here, that no one had striven for and landed so lucidly in the past as in this song. It is an anthem and a thing of beauty.
