I love these two songs! And the Bon Jovi song is a very obscure one at that so it's quite a surprise.

Cheers,

Great song! I love this too and brings back personal memories. Would you by any chance have a live version mp3 of this or a video performance of this song?

Cheers,

Right now mine would be:

Bob Geldof - I Don't Like Mondays (from the Secret Policeman's Other Ball)

Love Spit Love - Am I Wrong?

Michael Crawford - The Music Of The Night (from original cast recording of Phantom Of The Opera)

Bon Jovi - Never Say Goodbye

The Police - King Of Pain

Subject to change in the next 20 minutes. Perhaps I should start a thread that should expand the list to 20 songs so it can the list can be broadened.

Cheers,

J

doves - satellites (esp the live version) has helped me through some tough times and has made me cry on more than a few occasions.

weezer - island in the sun (always puts a smile on my face)

rem - man on the moon (my fav rem song....i waited 12 years to hear it live and i cried and danced the whole way though it in november)

radiohead - karma police

the last one is a toss up between the verve's lucky man and oasis - don't look back in anger.

*Shine On Your Crazy Diamond-Pink Floyd, a song about Sid Barret that really seems to speak to me about desperate hope
Still waiting for the rest...

I've had this song for a while, but has somehow neglected it. I listened to all 17 mins 32 secs of it. Thanks for the insight.

Yeah, high school memories are somehow the fondest. Anyway, do you have live versions of Never Say Goodbye? The only one I have is by Richie Sabora.

I'm really enjoying everybody's input. Keep 'em comin'! I've listened to quite a bit of what people have listed - if not the whole song, then a snippet from Amazon or iTunes. It's a great way to discover new music.

And for those who want to expand the list, it's easy and safe to come up with 20, etc. However, 5 is definitely the creme de la creme. I had to list out about 11 and then pare them down to 5. It was tough, but we end up with timeless songs.

I'm listing ten, I don't care...I can't do five right now....this list could be different tomorrow...


(in no particular order)

Beatles- All You Need Is Love- pretty universal stuff here....just a great, simple message

Third Eye Blind-Motorcycle Drive-By--I'll probably get crap for this one here, but I listened to this song over and over when I first heard it. It's hard not to sing out loud "I've never been...so...alive!"

INXS-Everything-newcomer to my list...such an uplifting song...this song captures the exact opposite mood than the death of Michael Huthence left us with...

Sting-Fields Of Gold-reminds me of high school...such a sad, beautiful song...

Queen-Innuendo- I hate to have to pick only one Queen song, but this epitomozes all that is Queen..overblown, melancholy, amazing lyrics, vocals, etc....

Peter Gabriel-Solsbury Hill-I still don't know what this song means exactly, but it's so cool...

Sarah McLachlan-Angel-the perfect song to hear when you are alone in the dark....

Stone Temple Pilots-Still Remains-another song that reminds me of those awkward high school years and the blistering hot summers here in Florida.

Tom Petty-Learning To Fly- I think this song made me a Tom Petty fan(it brings back memories)

Pearl Jam-Elderly Woman Behind the Counter In A Small Town-how can you not like this song? I just wanna scream HEEELLLLLOOOOOO!

After writing those down, I've realized that my most of my list is based on one thing...sentimentality...the memories associated with these songs have a lot to do with why they are favorites...



Ok, fine, here are the top 5(in no particular order)
Peter Gabriel-Solsbury Hill
Sarah McLachlan-Angel
Queen-Innuendo
INXS-Everything
Sting-Fields Of Gold
