What 5 Songs Are Necessary to Your Life?
January 27, 2006
On last week's episode of my new favorite show, Love Monkey, Tom (played by ubber-cutie Tom Cavanagh) asks a new co-worker that he may be interested in romantically what 5 songs she couldn't live without. Her #3 was something from the Essential Dylan (not something you would automatically think of, which is probably why I'm drawing a blank) and he is instantly smitten (he had earlier used the 2-CD set as a baby shower gift, contributing to his single state) - until she adds Starship's We Built This City. What would be your 5 seminal songs? I tried and tried, but I could only narrow the field to 6. It's harder the older I get, there's just too much to choose from. Click below to see my top 6 and add your 2 cents (and 5 songs)!
Here they are, in no particular order:
R.E.M. - Superman
Warren Zevon - Accidentally Like a Martyr
The Beatles - Revolution
Billy Joel - Scenes from an Italian Restaurant
Barenaked Ladies - Alternative Girlfriend
Richard Shindell - Transit
My deal breaker? Anything from The Who's Quadrophenia period. It's too minor keyish.
