Top Five

SystemSystem Posts: 8,584 Community Managers
I'm sure this has been done before *ducks* but I can't be bothered looking (and dragging it up would ensure my death <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">; ), and it stems off an LJ thread, so here we go - what are your top five absolute favourite songs?

(you can come back and change them any time!)

atm, mine would be:

1. Runaway - The Corrs
2. Madonna/some guy whose name I forget - American Pie
3. Shaggy "Angel"
4. Robbie Williams "She's the one"
5. Jennifer Lopez - Love Don't Cost A Thing

there's another song I'm trying to remember the name of (my memory always lets me down when I most need it!). and Geri Halliwell's "It's Raining Men" is cool too. aarrrgh, must stop, I know I said only five!

This is the first day of the rest of your life.

    this is gonna be SOOOO difficult. and it changes all the time. ok ill give it a go...

    in no particular order:
    • Wheatus - A Little Respect
    • Muse - Origin of Symmetry (ok so i cheat! but theres all of them, like them all!!!! megalomania, screenager, microcuts less maybe. but the rest all totally rock)
    • Travis - side/pipe dreams/flowers in the window
    • ash - sometimes
    • feeder - turn

    there i did it. but my vitriol - always (your way) should be in there somewhere.

    but this changes aaaall the time <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">;

    no not nu-metal. i only know a coupla songs of silverchair's, funnily enough "miss you love" is on now. im betting you wont like it <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">; but anthem for the year 2000 is maybe more your style, i havent heard it for months tho and i cant remember what its like really. louder than this one <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">; and i only know that one song by the goo goo dolls, i think theyre good... but again, its personal opinion. calvin's got the album unless im very much mistaken. as for silverchair - miss you love ... i suppose its a bit of a rock ballad. but they do other songs too that are minus the balladness <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">;

    oh im so useless at classifying music! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/rolleyes.gif">; <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">;

    hey tourette,

    yeah dude. the goo goo dolls are very much power pop. the one song gfm put on her list is a syruppy ballad.

    the uptempo tunes they do are definitely not thrashy. they've got guitars, but it's a polished radio friendly sounds. they sound a lot like third eye blind or matchbox twenty.

    hope this helps.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    In no order:

    Radiohead- Creep
    Radiohead- Exit Music (for a film)
    Travis- Flowers in the Window
    Stone Roses- I am the Resurrection
    REM- Man on the Moon




    The only interesting answers are those which destroy the questions.

    OK, you are soooooo "with it" where music is concerned!

    (Garbage are THE best.)

    Also, Supervixen, Stupid Girl, Push It, Temptation Waits and, my favourite song of all time, You Look So Fine.

    There, my five faves are all by Garbage! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">;
