My Favorite Songs of All Time

My Favorite Songs of All Time



I thought I would compile a list of my 10 favorite songs of all time. I found it impossible to narrow the list down to 10, so here are 25 of them.


The songs on my list have all stood the test of time. These are not songs which I really like for a while, then get tired of for a while. These are songs I put at the top of my list - not only now, but month after month and year after year.


My list is not based on a critique of songs. I’m not interested in listing the “best” songs. These songs create a different type of reaction in me than other songs, even other very good songs. The list is personal; it isn’t my way of saying what I think is “best”.


I did not attempt to balance the list of songs in any way. For example, I didn’t try to include a song from each of my favorite artists. Most of the artists I listen to the most aren’t even included in the list. Each song on the list got there on its own merits.


By “song”, I am referring to a specific recording by a specific artist.
