    Toughest question ever on this forum. You could subsitute many other songs from these artists. Way too hard to rank them....

    One - Metallica
    Synchronicity II - Police
    Bad - U2
    Fortress Around Your Heart - Sting
    Born to Run - Bruce
    Allentown - Billy Joel
    He Stopped Loving Her Today - George Jones
    Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash
    Georgia Rain - Trisha Yearwood
    4th of July - Shooter Jennings

    If you disected my Ipod you'd find mostly country, but thats a relatively new thing for me...

    All Country, and except for #10, all from West Texas, where "Old Style" Country lives on. I really like this Music and the People who play it. The local folks here who get together every Saturday night for a "Pickin" session are really into this as well.

    To give you an idea of how we feel, here's a Chorus from J.B.Beverly's "Dark Bar and a Jukebox"

    "Give me a Dark Bar and a Juke Box
    Oh burn that Radio
    Toby just don't cut it
    Give me Haggard, Give me Coe
    And I'm tired of watching Nashville
    and it's Washed up Fashion Show
    'Cause you won't find no Country
    On Country Radio......"

    I'd have a hard time limiting myself to 10 favorite bands, let alone songs. But these are the first ten favorites to jump right out at me, in no particular order:

    1. Badlands - Bruce
    2. Cult of Personality - Living Colour
    3. Enter Sandman - Metallica
    4. Friends in Low Places - Garth
    5. Back in Black - AC/DC
    6. Humans Being - Van Halen
    7. The Rising - Bruce
    8. The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels
    9. Moondance - Van Morrison
    10. Beer for My Horses - Toby Keith w/ Willie Nelson

    and as I look over the list, it's not so much these songs, but the "soundtrack of my life" they represent that is my favorite...

    Man, How can I limit this to ten? lol. This won't even be my all time top ten, this is just what's gonna come to mind right now.

    Don't Stop Believing-Journey
    Spacebound-Eminem
    Awake and Alive-Skillet
    Back in Black-AC/DC
    Tuesday's Gone-Lynard Skynard
    Wonderwall-Oasis
    Hotel California- The Eagles
    Piano Man-Billy Joel
    Half-Truism- The Offspring
    Lost for Words-Pink Floyd

    After typing this up, I'm realizing this is definitely NOT my top ten all time favorites, but more of a sampling of what I listen to. I could go on and on and on. I absolutely love music.
    I go on random kicks of an artist. So depending on the week my top ten changes. At the moment I'm on an Eminem kick, couple days ago I was on Pink Floyd and that's all I listened to, week before it was We Are Scientists. Top tens are incredibly difficult lol.

    I've only played "Jump" on my grocery boat when we had the police rescue team onboard for a bridge jumper.Until they made me quit it. But I digress.
    There have been some foul balls in the music bidness during all eras (Disco,anyone?) but there has also been some really good tunes being put out.
