I'm a hoppin, but not hippin

Alex J Cavanaugh has a blogfest on the go. This one I found rather challenging. Picking just 10 songs to call your favorites is HARD. Very Hard. I've given this some thought, I added and removing songs for days, and this is what I've some up with.

Here we go in no particular order...

Pearl Jam - Better Man
I am a HUGE Pearl Jam fan, I worked for one concert, saw another and sneaked into a soundcheck. It was hard deciding between Yellow Ledbetter, Daughter, Jeremy, Black, Evenflow, Alive... I could keep going....

Guns N Roses - Child of Mine
She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Metallica - Nothing Else Matters

Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name

Radiohead - Creep

The Pogues - Fairy Tale in New York
Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you

Gary Jules - Mad World
From one on my favorite movies, comes one of my favorite songs, only fitting.

Our Lady Peace - Clumsy

Flogging Molly - Leave This World Alive

Wintersleep - Weighty Ghost
I got out of bed today, Swear to God I couldn’t see my face
I got out of bed today staring at a ghost
Who forgot to float away, didn’t have all that much to say

So that would be my 10... I'd also like to give props (yeah I just said that) to...
Tool - Sober
AC/DC- Back In Black
Billie Haliday - I'll be seeing you
Beastie Boy - Girls
Blondie - Heart of Glass


  1. I like your list! If I had top 20 I'd have "nothing else matters" and "in the name of" in there for sure. I like the "sweeet child of mine" but I can't get over what a douchenozzle Axl Roads is.

  2. Guns and Roses....Sweet Child O' Mine! YES!!!!

  3. Oh yeah! Some good songs here.

    Make sure you check my Wednesday post!
    Tossing It Out

  4. Fantastic list. I'm going to confess that before I met The Hubster, I was engaged once before. Though my brothers liked him, they didn't like him for me and there was a joke between them that they were going to play Can't Find a Better Man instead of our song... oh, that sounds so awful and my brothers really are wonderful guys. That song triggered that old memory. LOVE your picture at the top of your blog!!!

  5. This is the 3rd post I've read like this tonight. I knew more songs on your list than the other two. Yay!! I love Pearl Jam, too. I think Daughter is my favorite. :)

  6. I listened to that Pogues song a million times around Christmas this year. I could totally listen to your list.

  7. I discovered Wintersleep just last week after hearing "Weighty Ghost" in the premiere of SyFy's Being Human. It's such a fantastic song.

  8. Nothing Else Matters made mine too. Sweet Child o' Mine should have!

  9. You got some metal in there - I approve!! Thanks for participating.

  10. Blondie! Now that takes me back a few years...

  11. I'm sure it's a great list, and I'm sure I would say "I know that one" if it was playing. I don't know most of these by name, though. I do love I've Got a Feeling and Heart of Glass.

  12. Great choices! I love that Tool song too. Hmm, where'd my cassette of that album go?
