I think it's going to end up being:

The Who - Behind Blue Eyes

There were a few other candidates... I Believe I Can Fly was a constant in my early childhood.

This is the most likely one, but there are others that could be are My Life by Billy Joel, Wonder by Natalie Merchant, Wonderful by Everclear, Life Like Water by Ramond Lam, or The Logical Song by Supertramp.

"You Learn" by Alanis Morissette, probably.
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFW-WfuX2Dk[/youtube]
That or perhaps "Hey Man (Now You're Really Living)" by Eels,
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUS-0bLAg1A[/youtube]
(The video is of Charlie Bartlett, a movie that I love, too, which uses this song.)
or "I Think I'm Paranoid" by Garbage.

I really love "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol.
It can seem romantic, but I find it really sings to me about having aspergers -
The chorus goes:
"If I lay here
If I just lay here
Will you lie with me
And just forget the world"

It may sound weird, but it's like singing to your aspergers side, and how you can get so focused, and just "forget the world"

Also,
"I don't quite know
how to say
what I feel"

Another part of aspergers

And p.s. - I also love fireflies and bohemian rhapsody

Easily for me it is called "And Always..." by a band named The End. The lyrics so accurately relay my life struggle I can't help but fight back tears every time I hear it. Lyrically it's easily the most relateable thing I've ever heard, almost word for word:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOgb1OOgKrM

You’ve been bedding with the down and below
On your toes peering out of the hole

The void offers sweet release

And always the thought of defeat it has lessened you
Mortar and bricks have cut off your air
And always the fire that burns deep and down within you
Has left you so afraid of love

The things you don’t say have weighed without wait
Impatient and persistent, not fleeting, not for a moment
When it seems like all you’re made to do is suffer
You’ll be pleased to know that miracles do occur

You never chose this
This place you don’t fit
You’re just misplaced
A pet with no trick
A wreck
Broken in need of a fix

And always the feeling of failure has trailed you
Nothing you’ve tried keeps the vultures at bay
So restless and weary, you desperately struggle
But it’s all to no avail

The mirror of mirth lies shattered in pieces
So long to the image, now you’ll never see it
And the leaden ball that’s been chained to your ankle
Has kept you running in circles

You never chose this
This place you don’t fit
You’re just misplaced
A pet with no trick
A wreck
Broken in need of a fix

How numb have you become?
Now that you’ve lost all connection
Your bottle’s filled up to the brim
Who will be left to clean the spill?
And when your breaking point pierces the surface tension
You’re sure to overflow all at once
And see how brittle becomes you

And there is no escaping this
All of the memories haunt your flesh
There is no trace of the events
Only the ones you recollect
Relax and arrest the arrhythmia within your chest
The bells toll not for your atonement
And you can’t make them stop

And always the thought of defeat it has lessened you
Mortar and bricks have cut off your air
And always the fire that burns deep and down within you
Has left you so afraid of love

And the things you don’t say have weighed without wait
Impatient and persistent, not fleeting, not for a moment
When it seems like all you’re made to do is suffer
You’ll be pleased to know that miracles do occur

Days Are Numbers -- by Alan Parsons

The traveler is always leaving town
He never has the time to turn around
And if the road he's taken isn't leading anywhere
He seems to be completely unaware

The traveler is always leaving home
The only kind of life he's ever known
When every moment seems to be
A race against the time
There's always one more mountain left to climb

Days are numbers, watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday, you'll know where you are, remember

Days are numbers, count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you'll know where you are

The traveler awaits the morning tide
He doesn't know what's on the other side
But something deep inside of him
Keeps telling him to go
He hasn't found a reason to say no

The traveler is only passing through
He cannot understand your point of view
Abandoning reality, unsure of what he'll find
The traveler in me is close behind

Days are numbers, watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday you'll know where you are

Remember
Days are numbers, count the stars
We can only go so far
One day, you'll know where you are

Remember
Days are numbers, watch the stars
We can only see so far
Someday you'll know where you are

Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat for you
Once I was a lover
And I searched behind your eyes for you
And soon there'll be another
To tell you I was just a lie

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you remember me

And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins
For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes
And the silence of our words

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you remember me

How about some author's names and copyright notices, people?

The song that defines my life is "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees. Another song that defines me is "Night Fever" by the Bee Gees. Back in 1990s, when Disco made a brief comeback I used to dress like John Travolta. I had the platform shoes and the polyester clothing that defined that era.I was also a very good dancer too at the clubs along the Sunset strip. I had the fortunate chance of meeting the entire KC and the Sunshine Band. I think when I enter a room they should be playing those songs.
