Favorite 20 Songs

The other night at swimming, the musak was playing Deacon Blue by Steely Dan and I tweeted that it was on the list of my favorite 20 songs. I thought as 2010 comes to a close, maybe I should really put just such a list together.

 I am not going to put them in order, in general, where music is concerned, I like something or I don't.

So here they are in no particular order. I also am pretty sure this list is fluid - but this is a fair representation of 20 songs, which always speak to me. (The genre diversity should speak for itself.)

1. Steely Dan - Deacon Blue

2. James - Laid

3. Barbara Streisand and Barry Gibb - Guilty

4. Modest Mouse - The Float On 

5. Modest Mouse - The View

6. The Moody Blues - In Your Wildest Dreams

7. Kate Bush - Running Up that Hill

8. Tori Amos - Cornflake Girl

9.REM  - The One I Love

10. Feist - When I was a young girl

11.NIN - Head Like a Hole

12. American Music - Violent Femmes

13. Dave Matthews Band - American Baby

14. Cat Stevens - Peace Train

15. Crosby, Stills, Nash et al. Wooden Ships

16. LIVE - Lightening Crashes

17. The Church - Under the Milky Way

18. Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen

19. Matthias Reim - Verdammt ich lieb dich

20. The Rolling Stones - Paint It Black
