This is a brutal choice  Two masterpieces. 

The Makings of You is a love song, so you can listen to it more often.

Someday We'll All Be Free is so emotionally wrenching, with the promise of dreams not yet achieved, so I listen to it less, but love it when I do.

Not to mention the different versions of each song. So, if I had to choose only one and could never hear the other one again, I'll go with Someday We'll All Be Free (the Donnie Hathaway original with a nod to Aretha Franklin's version on the Malcolm X soundtrack).

Edging out the Gladys Knight & The Pips version of The Makings of You with big respect to Mr. Mayfield's original.
