What's your top 10 songs?

June 28th, 2009 at 09:46 pm

In Australia there is a radio station, Triple J, which is not a commercial radio station, but is very well known. Every year they release a cd of the Top 100 songs of the year, which is voted for by the public. In 1989 they released an album, Top 100 Songs Of All Time. (Love will Tear Us Apart being the #1 song at that time).

This year they are doing it again, so DF and I voted. The voting closed last night at midnight.

DF voted for a lot of Ween songs Smile, Beethovens Fur Elise, Queens of the Stone Age and The White Stripes.

I voted for:
Eleanor Rigby (The Beatles) Golden Brown (The Stranglers) All Along The Watchtower (Jimi Hendrix) Times Are A Changing (Bob Dylan) Buckingham Green (Ween) Jailhouse Rock (Elvis) Billy Jean (Michael Jackson) Seven Nation Army (The White Stripes) Fur Elise (Beethoven) and O Fortuna (Carl Orff).

Fingers crossed some of them make it into the top 100!

You also have to pick your # 1 song and explain why, and the winner gets an all expenses paid trip to the Reading Festival. So cool! My # 1 song was by Bob Dylan.


Anyway. This doesnt really have anything to do with finances... unless you count MAYBE having a trip to England? Or that we'll be spending $30 on a CD soon...? Big Grin lol.

What are your top 10 songs?

    My favorite song is "My way" by Elvis.

  2. baselle Says:

    Funny you should mention it but "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division is one of my favorites. I'll take a look on my MP3 player - 4000 songs; I should be able to find 9 more.

    I wouldn't even know where to begin!!, but love the White Stripes. Just occurred to me the band is referenced in your blog name. Big Grin

    But yeah, I am not good at picking favorites!

    Like MonkeyMama, I *just* realized that the White Stripes is your user ID! I can't believe I didn't catch onto that earlier.

    I love musicals and my top songs come from "Man of La Mancha", "Les Miserables", "Wicked", etc.

    ps: BA, I am loving Diana Krall these days. I like the version of "Almost Blue" she sings. I think written by Elvis Costello, her husband. I also like listening to Elvis Costello, been to a few concerts.

    1) For Crying Out Loud - Meat Loaf

    After that - forget it! Too many good songs to choose from!
