Oh, hands down it's ALFIE.

 It's Burt's favorite too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hUhtLYhlhE

Cilla Black's performance on this clip is spellbinding (her's is my favorite version of this song by far)

Total magic!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faityurE10I

If you haven't seen these yet, spend a few minutes and do it now... so worth it.

The others? Where to begin!!?

The version of a House is Not a Home on the Bacharach Classics album is sooooooo good...it's better than the original.

"My Little Red Book" as done by Love (I understand Burt didn't like it but that's not my problem). 
"The Story of My Life"  as done by Marty Robbins
"Don't Make Me Over" as done by Dionne Warwick
and of course "The Blob" by the 'Five Blobs' from the soundtrack of the movie "The Blob".

I may be alone in this, but for whatever reason, I really love "Do You Know The Way To San Jose" .  I think it's the horns, and just the 60's hip vibe of it.  It's just a kind of classy pop song, somehow it's bubblegum but in Dionne Warwick's classy style.  I can't really make a great argument for that being his best song, but I believe it's my favorite.

I also love Alfie.  I have a great live record of Jerry Butler, and he does a phenomenal version of it on there.  His voice is pretty suited to it.

"I Say A Little Prayer" is beautiful.  I think the melody is what carries it, but man what a great song. 

I had no idea he did Liberty Valance, that's a great song.
