MUSIC BLOGFEST - THE TOP TEN SONGS OF ALL TIME (according to moi!)

I panicked when I saw some of the Music Countdown lists posted and published mine just to realise I'm a day early. *shrug*. At least it's here.

Oh, we only get 10 choices! This is hard! So thanks to music freak Alex J Cavanaugh for this blogfest which gives us the chance to nominate our top 10 best songs of all time. It will be interesting to see across the spectrum of differenct countries and different cultures which songs will be common amongst us.


My Top 10 Songs

Seeing I'm on my Paris blog (it's too crowded over at L'Aussie) I'll use French numbers. Good to keep up.


  Un:          I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2


Deux:       Fernando - Abba

Trois:       Living on a Prayer - Bon Jovi

Quatre:    The Summer of 69 - Bryan Adams

Cinq:        Love me tender - Elvis Presley
Six:          Gotta be somebody - Nickleback


Sept:        Streets of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen

Huit:         In the name of love - U2


Neuf:        Lost and Running - Powderfinger


Dix:          Sounds of Silence - Simon and Garfunkle

There you go. It was tres difficile to choose only 10. There are many more I like equally, but the man said 10. Enough!

  34. Such great choices. There have been a few artists I thought would have a much larger presence around this fest - U2 is one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Really good choices. And it's official. Summer of '69 is my #11. I have seen it on so many lists, mocking me for not including it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Excellent choices! Hard to go wrong with U2. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yay for Bryan Adams - a Canadian! (Of course, U2 and Springsteen are great choices, too [g])

    ReplyDelete
  38. Obviously I think they're all pretty good, no matter what nationality!

    ReplyDelete
  39. And I didn't know Bryan Adams was Canadian!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yup! I started thinking about nationalities afterward, when I realised how many UK bands I had in my list...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I stopped by for the hot mug blogfest and was pleasantly surprised to see another one happening with Alex's blogfest! Great choice in music! I'll be back later on to see your favorite mug!
