Doesn't have to be one of each, but i will start with
Anything Kate Bush has ever written esp. Hounds of Love LP
And Karl Ove Knausgaard, A Death in the Family or any of his other novels

Don't have a favourite play currently apart from Hamlet.

I don't have a favorite play or playwright or anything, really. Too many favorites. Anything by Albee or Williams, I suppose. I adore Noel Coward and, of course, something by me.

Music: Sara Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga

Novel: Anything by D.H. Lawrence, Thomas Mann, and the one I'm working on, of course.

I have never cared for Shakespeare.

Poetry: Federico Garcia Lorca beats them all hands down!

Hard to stick with "single greatest" but I will give it a shot.

Novel - WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Bronte

Play - KING LEAR I agree with Shaw on this

Song - ONE by U2

Short Story - METAMORPHOSIS by Kafka

All are likely to outlast the fuel supply of the sun.

That is tough because it's personal and it changes, and it has to do with where you are in life when you hear it, or see it ... But for plays - Pillowman by Martin McDonagh and The Walworth Farce by Enda Walsh and Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth were all run into the street screaming in wonder good. I once saw a production of The Homecoming by Pinter at the Tricycle in London that was so heartbreaking I had to leave before it was over. Rory Kinnear did a "funny" Hamlet at the National in about 2011 and man, I loved that. All of these were in London except Walworth Farce which was in Edinburgh.

This is one of my fave pieces of music - albeit from a so-so film:
