    Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    This might have been done on here before, but I'm doing it again.

    List your Top 10 all-time favorite songs. Not songs by your ten favorite bands, or ten songs by your favorite band, but 10 songs that if those were the only 10 songs you could hear again, you'd pick these 10. They can be songs that whenever you hear the first note, it brings a smile to your face, or immediately makes you want to start singing along. A song that immediately removes you from where you are and makes you think back to another time. No restrictions apply. These are, at this time, your 10 favorite songs of all time.

    Mine (in no particular order - and I'm not doing the random numbering thing for effect):

    Men Without Hats - Pop Goes the World
    The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
    Fort Minor - Where'd You Go
    Grateful Dead - Box of Rain
    Beastie Boys - She's Crafty
    Men At Work - Overkill
    Temple of the Dog - Hunger Strike
    Annie Lennox - Why
    Johnny Cash - It Ain't Me Babe
    Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees

    Just missing the cut: Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan; I'm Bad - LL Cool J; Running on Empty - Jackson Browne; Hard Knock Life - Jay Z.

    That's my list right now. It's changed over the years, but those are my 10 favorite right now. Yours?

    All very good selections, Puffy. All of them would have been in my Top 10 at one point in time. I wonder how much Bach and Beethoven we're going to see on RFS's list...

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Re: Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    My Top 4 haven't changed in the past decade:
    U2 - With or Without You
    Soul Coughing - True Dreams of Wichita (A non-country song involving my hometown? What's not to love?)
    1979 - Smashing Pumpkins
    Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

    Beyond those, the list becomes more fluid. Currently, it's something like this:

    San Dimas High School Football Rules - The Ataris
    The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
    Don't Stop Believin' - Journey (Cheesy as hell, but I still get chills when I hear those opening piano chords)
    Cute without the 'E' - Taking Back Sunday
    Where Is My Mind? - The Pixies
    Purple Rain - Prince

    Re: Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    This is tough. I'm just going to pick 10 songs by the first 10 of my favorite performers that pop into my head right now.

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Brompton Oratory
    The Clash - White Man in Hammersmith Palais
    X - The Have Nots
    They Might Be Giants - They'll Need A Crane
    Ramones - Judy is a Punk

    That's 5 already? Damn...

    Bjork - It's Oh So Quiet
    Liz Phair - Nashville
    The Germs - Richie Dagger's Crime
    The Aquabats! - The Thing on the Bass Amp

    Man, I've got about 30 other things I want to put down, but we'll go with something still unrepresented...

    Talib Kweli - Put it in the Air

    Re: Your Top 10 All-Time favorite songs

    Hmmm ... well let's see here, in random order ...

    Counting Crows - Anna Begins
    Counting Crows - Mrs. Potter's Lullaby
    Dave Matthews Band - #41
    Dave Matthews Band - Grey Street
    Fort Minor - Where'd You Go
    Mat Kearney - All I Need
    Led Zeppelin - Achilles Last Stand
    Pearl Jam - Corduroy
    Tupac Shakur - Starin' Through My Rearview (remix of Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight)

    Tied:
    Matt Nathanson - Curve of the Earth
    Augustana - Boston

    I had to cut out a bunch, but that's probably my Top 10 (or 11) right now.

    BTW, "Anna Begins" by the Counting Crows is my all-time favorite song, especially the various live versions they've done.

    Creedence Clearwater Revival - Who'll Stop the Rain
    James Taylor - Sweet Baby James
    Beatles - Yesterday
    Kinks - You Really Got Me
    Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
    Byrds - Turn, Turn, Turn
    The Cyrkle - Red Rubber Ball
    Beatles - Eleanor Rigby
