Top Ten Songs - Music Blogfest

If you have no idea what this is then you should visit Alex J. Cavanaugh who is the host of this here blogfest.
I shouldn't of waited until the last second to come up with this list. I think I had more than a month to think about it. The due date came up so fast. One day I will learn not to wait until the last minute but I doubt it. I think it may be instinctual. This is a much harder list to come up with than favorite movies or actors. There are so many damn good tunes out there. So in no particular order, I will give it a go.

Song - Artist


Tiny Dancer - Elton John (Probably my all time favorite song)



Summer of '69 - Bryan Adams

Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) - Green Day


Wonderwall - Oasis


Machinehead - Bush


Fortunate Son - Creedance Clearwater Revival


Keep on Loving You - REO Speedwagon


Shackled - Vertical Horizon


Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down


Ramble On - Led Zeppelin

I would highly recommend looking up any songs on here you don't know and giving it a listen. Okay I could probably redo this list like 20 times and still not be happy with what I put. This is my first draft and I am keeping it this way otherwise I will never be happy with it. I would put most of Green Day songs up there because they are my all time favorite band but I can't play favorites. Dammit!! I have so many alternates to put. Why can't this be a top 50 blogfest. Arrggghhh!!

I never heard any of these on the Lawrence Welk show. Weird....

Oilfield Trash said...

I love me some CCR.

Stephanie said...

Great list!!! I have bush on my list too...but Glycerine!! Love Machinehead though!!! We almost got our dance teacher to agree to use it for our routine this year...we actually started a routine to it, but then she changed her mind...I can't even tell you what she picked instead!!

M Pax said...

I have every song on your list. How could I forget to list Bush?

Hart Johnson said...

Kryptonite! There is a song to bond us forever. I had almost forgotten about it but i love it--not sure it has the same connotations for you it does me... I have a whole playlist that spurs my little 'loving an addict' violins, but I love the songs on it.

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Nice list. I know most.

Budd said...

great list, no need to go look anything up.

Marlene said...

Love me some Bryan Adams! (REO Speedwagon, too....but normally you wouldn't catch me admitting it.)

Lydia K said...

I love so many on your list--Tiny Dancer, Kryptonie, Wonderall...lots of good ones here!

aspiring_x said...

Hannah Kincade said...

Oh man! I love Machinehead!! Great list!

Tara said...

With the exception of Shackled (which I don't think I've ever heard - but will look up), I love every one of these songs!

Jennie Bailey said...

Second time I'm seeing Kryptonite - love that song! You have a great list here!!

Elaine AM Smith said...

I love Green Day and Oasis - it was hard not being able to squeeze in one of their tracks.

Liz Pezzuto said...

Nice list. Green Day is also on my list. Nice pick on Oasis. :)

Arlee Bird said...

Yeah, I could think up favorite songs all day. You came up with a bunch of winners here. "Tiny Dancer" is an especially fine song.

Tossing It Out

Wonderwall just missed my list my a hair

Kelly said...

Great list!
Keep On Loving You was my favorite song in grade school!
Also Machinehead is awesome. I like Bush and Gavin Rossdale's solo stuff.

RosieC said...

Great list! I love that CCR and Oasis make the same list. And Summer of '69 is great. Nice choices. Really wish I had thought to put some CCR on my own list...

Karen Peterson said...

You've got great taste. This is the third or fourth time I've seen Summer of '69 pop up and I am kicking myself for not putting it on my list, too!

Trisha said...

I've only recently rediscovered "Machinehead", damn is that ever an awesome song! Also love "Shackled" by VH (a recent first-time discovery for me :D) and re-discovered "Kryptonite" (which somebody else in this blogfest reminded me of, actually 2 other people I think :D).

Nice list! :)

Teachinfourth said...

Every song you listed is amazing! Love me some Vertical Horizon...

iZombie said...

Deniz Bevan said...

Woo hoo, Oasis, CCR, Zeppelin, Bryan Adams - and Tiny Dancer! I like your list [s]

James Garcia Jr said...

Hello, Powdered Toast Man. Very interesting title. I didn't quite finish going through the list, so I'm trying to visit everyone today. I only removed Tiny Dancer from my list at the last minute. I agonized over "Philadelphia Freedom", "Somebody Save My Life Tonight" and "Tiny Dancer".
Love the Bryan Adams, Speedwagon, and, of course, The Mighty Zeppelin. Great list!
