I was very diasppointed with American thrushes. For me they sound like bending sheets of tin.
Black-faced Solitaire is an American thrush.

Wink Willie Wagtail :)

I'm going to add this one to the mix .... plucky, feisty little birds that also have the most lovely, soft and sweet pre-dawn song. Though I have heard them even softer, I managed to find a reasonable representation of that here:

Smile Grey Fantail

Perhaps not quite reaching the musical clarity of the Willie Wagtail, let alone the Musical Wren, or Grey Shrike-Thrush, but nonetheless a happy little bird with a big voice - synonymous with woodlands and Autumn, and Spring :)

Thumbs up White-throated Gerygone

Another cheery little bird with crisp notes - probably the first bird I learned to imitate by whistling when I was a kid :)

For me, nothing beats listening to a Thrush Nightingale in full song at night. We're fortunate to have them breeding outside our kitchen window in Russia and in the summer, we drift off to sleep to this lovely sound.

I like very much Thrush Nightingale also. I know many birders don't like it cos it's too noisy. Especially when they try to listening some quieter birds, like Grasshopper Warblers etc...
Maybe I like it so much cos it was the first Warbler sp. which I learned to recognize by sound.
Also, I like very much Black Bird, Song Thrush, Bluethroat, Icterine, Sedge, Marsh, Blyth's Reed Warblers songs etc. Hard to put them in order.

I would put the Cuban Solitaire song before the Black-faced song, but maybe just cos I have heard CS and not the BfS. There is something very magical on those Solitaires voices.

Slightly tangential but I have two, outstanding moments which included birds call. 1, A fully moonlit desert in Morocco with Stone Curlews calling all around and 2, sitting by a lake in the Russian Arctic at midnight, with a Black-throated Diver calling on the lake, magical moments for me.

Nice.

Reminds me very much of our Australian Reed Warbler https://www.xeno-canto.org/340992
but with added 'scissor grinder' churring like from our Restless Fly catcher too.

From those I've heard in the field, I'm always amazed by Icterine and Marsh Warbler, incredible what they can produce

Same here! My experiences with Calandra Larks singing in masse were in Portugal. Its quite important you say in high spring and a windless day. If one is lucky enough to get in the right position so that their song can fill one's eardrums so to speak, its overwhelming. I was so absorbed by this both frenzied but inventive and incredibly varied sound, I just thought; right that's it, I need no more from life and lay down with my ears to the sky happy as a boy on a swing. Unfortunately experiences of this nature are not common for me! Much as I adore Skylark, Calandra is simply an amazing song

Another song that "really got me" was Red-rumped Wheatear in south Morocco - I had camped out on a roll mat with no tent and was woken by their pre-dawn song. Birds all around me singing by first proper light and at close range. Highly recommend song to hear well!

The song I most want to hear, of European birds I do not know is River Warbler.

Smile Lyrebird ......

I'd love to hear a Lyrebird that had been exposed to all the songsters on this thread, and see what sort of wonderful pitch perfect composition it would come up with !
