I forgot to add Arcade Fire's The Suburbs to my list when I edited it. I don't think I'm ever been so excited for new music. EVER.

Okay I've been trying to think of this list for a while but I think I may just name the first 25 that come to mind. This isn't in any order, the numbers are just so I know when I get to 25.


  1. Happiness Is A Warm Gun – The Beatles
  2. Across The Universe – The Beatles
  3. Hey Bulldog – The Beatles
  4. A Day In The Life – The Beatles
  5. Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) – The Beatles
    (I'll stop before it becomes a list of 25 Beatles songs) 
  6. Working Class HeroJohn Lennon
  7. Baker Street – Gerry Rafferty
  8. Mr Blue Sky – Electric Light Orchestra
  9. American Pie – Don McLean
  10. Ain't That A Kick In The Head – Dean Martin
  11. Beetlebum – Blur
  12. Bennie & The Jets - Elton John
  13. One More Time (or any track off of Discovery) – Daft Punk
  14. The Rhythm Method (Move!) – Flobots
  15. Reptilia – The Strokes
  16. Best Of You – Foo Fighters
  17. Human Nature – Michael Jackson
  18. Man Who Sold The World – Nirvana (I know it's a Bowie cover but it has to be this version)
  19. I Wanna Be Adored – The Stone Roses
  20. El Manana – Gorillaz
  21. Nightswimming – R.E.M
  22. Plane – Jason Mraz
  23. Dancing In The Moonlight – Toploader
  24. Marblehead Johnson – The Bluetones
  25. Ain't No Sunshine – Bill Withers
Ah I know there's so many I've forgotten but that'll do on impulse.
I also realised that I was tempted to include some songs when it was actually just the music video that I loved, eg:
  1. Teardrop – Massive Attack
  2. Here It Goes Again – OK Go
  3. Just A Day – Feeder
  4. Californication – Red Hot Chilli Peppers
  5. The View From The Afternoon – Arctic Monkeys 
  6. Once Around The Block – Badly Drawn Boy
etc etc etc.
(As soon as I post this, a million song titles are going to miraculously appear in my head, I just know it aha!)

Only now saw this topic because it was posted while I was gone. Anyway this list is by far not definitive, because my music tastes changes constantly. So it's the first twenty five songs that come to mind here.


1. Fade With Our Voices- Jason Gray

2. Fashion- David Bowie

3. Moves Like Jagger- Maroon 5

4. You've Got a Friend- James Taylor

5. Love For A Child- Jason Mraz (That song makes me cry every time.)

6. These Eyes- The Guess Who

7. Jungleland- Bruce Springsteen

8. Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying- Gerry and the Pacemakers

9. People are Strange- The Doors

10. Beautiful Day- U2

11. Your Song- Elton John

12. Surfin' Bird- The Trashmen

13. Stardust- Hogie Carmicle

14. Build Me Up Buttercup- The Foundations

15. We Didn't Start the Fire- Billy Joel

16. Blackbird- The Beatles

17. House of the Rising Sun- The Animals

18. What's Going On- Marvin Gaye

19. Heartbreak Warfair- John Mayer

20. Hide and Seek- Imogen Heap

21. Cheek to Cheek- Fred Astaire

22. The Moment I Said It- Imogen Heap (Another song that can easily make me cry)

23. Moon River- Johnny Mercer

24. Mack the Knife- Bobby Darin

25. An American in Paris- George Gershwin


A lot of songs are left off there because I tried to give each artist about one song. And it changes a lot too.
