To Dream the Impossible Dream, from Man of La Mancha, sung by Brian Stokes Mitchell, 2008.

The Man of La Mancha is an extremely popular musical written in the 1960s, inspired by Don Quixote. This is the signature number, which has proven a classic of American musical theater. As an interesting sidenote, the original lyricist for the musical was famed poet W. H. Auden, but his work was not used in the end production.
