Your favorite 5 songs

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Let's hear em

These don't have to be "great" songs, but songs that you just can't skip over. The songs when you've heard them for the 168,628th time you still turn it up and enjoy.  The songs that either have an impact on your life, take you back to a time or memory, or maybe they're recent stuff you love.

Bonus if they're in different genres, but that's not necessary. It's your list.

Almost had our first repeat. It was either this or that's all.

(I'm curious to see how many repeats we get)

Same, I was going to put it but I actually think the song only works for me for about 5 months of the year. I’m not listening to that song in January.

It would be a struggle to pick 5 songs of the month, let alone for life. I am really enjoying some songs that I just added to my playlist a week ago, but I have only heard it 10 times vs many thousands for something from high school or longer ago. This is essentially playing 5 songs from my playlist at random, ask again in an hour and they would probably all change. 

Tricky - Car Crash

Nine Inch Nails - The Becoming

Connection - X.Lover

Goldfish - Fort Knox

Neurosis - Lost

As has been mentioned, 5 is tough. I tried to hit a few different genres I like so these may not be exactly my top 5:

Tim McGraw - "Angry All The Time"

Nirvana, ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’

Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Doggy Dogg, ‘Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang’

Kenny Chesney, "There Goes My Life"
