Since it is impossible for me to have just one favorite pop song, I thought I'd start a favorite top 10 list. Here are mine, not in any specific order:

In my Life - the Beatles
Suzanne - Leonard Cohen
Smooth - Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas
Kashmir - Led Zeppelin
Ne Me Quite Pas - Jacques Brel
Vincent - Don McLean
Hound Dog - Big Mama Thornton
The Sound of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
Those Were the Days - Mary Hopkin
Imagine - John Lennon

What is your top 10 list?

and even narrowing down to 10 will be hard. In no particular order



I feel Fine - The Beatles
Use Me Up - Bill Withers
My First, My Last, My Everything - Barry White
Crazy - Patsy Cline
Perm - Bruno Mars
I Should Have Known Better - The Beatles
Mull of Kintyre - Paul McCartney
End of the Line - The Traveling Wilburys
I Wish - Stevie Wonder (also "For Once in my Life" & Superstition)
You're No Good - Linda Ronstadt


Ok, that was brutal. I love everything by the Beatles and they are my favorite group. I love Stevie Wonder, I love Heart, I love Linda Ronstadt, and also The Who. I love Aimee by Pure Prairie League, and . . . and . . . and.

Ne Me Quite Pas - Jacques Brel
I had never heard this song, but a few years ago my dd did a beautiful dance to it. It's one of my all time favorites she's ever done, so consequently the song is now a favorite as well.
