Monet Julia Sabel: "I Got Lost In His Arms" (as performed by Eydie Gormé). 
I found it so difficult to just pick one of Eydie Gormé's many masterpieces, but this song has always spoken to me, and her powerful, driven vocals, which especially shine on this number, only reiterate its meaning. This song has the potential to be a wistful, romantic ballad, but Eydie (and the rich orchestrations) manages to portray strength and superb control of both the situation and her immense talent.
