For me it is Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath, Electric Worry by Clutch, and Hangar 18 by Megadeth.

I could literally spend days just playing these songs.

How about you guys?

I for one oculd spend all day playing higher ground (the Stevie Wonder version. It still shocks me how many people think he covered it off the Chili Peppers...) or livin' for the city. The intro to livin for the city is so funky it sends chills up my spine, and you actually cant help but keep perfect time with it.
Peg by Steely Dan, complex yet surprisingly simple, and sounds funky too
Bugle Breaks by Duke Ellington - its why I love big band
Oh Marion, Ace in the Hole and Mean Individual by Paul Simon

those songs I could play for all eternity
Yamaha Maple Custom, white stain laquer
Zildjian Avedis cymbals
Evans heads
