    well. the question sounds quite banal, but this article is a funny read :mrgreen:

    … while reading, I started to think about my personal top 5 songs, but hey, that’s a hard task… :idea: :shock:

    Charming article. I like the part about Jumping Jack Flash. Just a simple B-chord that rocked the nation. Yeah thats what rock and roll is about!

    Whoa, I built my own personal Top 5 list.
    Ok, I didn’t look left or right to think about which songs are the most important in history, or which ones sold the most copies or whatever. This list is about which songs I love the most.
    Of course there are hundreds more songs I love, but if I ask myself which 5 songs I’d take with me to a desert island, it would be these (in no particular order):

    Do nothing – The Specials
    a song that never fails to make me feel happy

    Jangle Town – Nikki Sudden
    It’s such a simple song, simple structure, simple chords, repetitive lyrics, but there’s something about it that catches me completely, anytime I listen to it.

    I don’t Think – Dinosaur Jr
    It’s just a perfect song. I could listen to it many hours in a row – call it my personal mantra… :D (and don’t mix it up with ‘I don’t think so’!)

    You Were Right – Built To Spill
    This one could easily win the prize as the saddest song ever, or the most uplifting? both, if you ask me.

    Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies
    Who would disagree about that this is the coolest song ever?!

    I`ll try to do a top 5 though I`ll leave out a ton of good songs but here goes:

    Dinosaur Jr-The Lung:J`s best guitar solo I think;it`s like a anthem.

    Eleventh Dream Day-Makin Like A Rug or Dream Of A Sleeping Sheep:a tie! 8) Makin has the best chorus in the world and the guitar solo rips;Sleeping Sheep is another personal anthem for me and my view of life and the world,the slide guitar solo would make George Thorogood retire :lol: it`s just so wild.

    Husker Du-Indecision Time:when Bob screams-"You`re a big fucking kid you don`t know what you`re about!"it was like he was talking to me.

    My Bloody Valentine-When You Sleep:another anthem!the little keyboard riff is so catchy!

    Richard Thompson-Calvary Cross:incredible song,Richard said once it was how he felt that music was enslaving him and this song was like a release from it.

    5 songs is`nt enough! so maybe I`ll talk about more another time.

    Today I feel like this, tomorrow neverknows!

    1) Beach boys / God only knows (this is what songwriting is about)
    2) The Band / Katie’s been gone (yesterday I had to cry about it song so…)
    3) Eels / It’s a motherfucker (What can I say?)
    4) The Beatles / Tomorrow never knows ( the version of the anthology)
    5) Neil Young / Powderfinger (sentimental reasons, only the starting chord is enough..look out mama!!!)

    Maybe we should make this tread on a weekly /monthly bases, best songs are developing all the time.
