Listomania - Top 10 MP3s

Here's a list of current top 10 favourite songs that get me through the day, in no order of preference.

1. Never Let Me Down Again - Depeche Mode
Blast from the past. This is one of my favourite DM songs and DM being one of my favourite bands.

2. Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins

Never did gave much attention to SP until now. This song is a classic with SP fans. Heard that Billy Corgan is reviving the SP vehicle this year.

3. In My Life - Beatles
See above comments for SP. I honestly didn't know that Beatles were this good. A meangingful song.

4. Ava Adore - Smashing Pumpkins
It's this song that I adore...

5. Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
Made me wanna watch Grey's Anatomy.

6. We Used To Be Friends - The Dandy Warhols
Neo noir high school detective series Veronica Mars theme song. Very nice upbeat and revamp of 80s synthrock style.

7. 君の好きなとこ - 平井堅

8. Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne
I don't know about you but I just enjoy this catchy tune and naughty lyrics alot.

9. 我真的以为 - 张栋梁
虽然没有觉得很好听,不过觉得容易唱. 可惜这里没有KTV.

10. 夜空のムコウ - SMAP
SMAP didn't do it justice because some members have poor vocals but nevertheless still quite a nice song to listen to.

Having a a good selection of music to accompany me during the day can entirely uplift the mood of an otherwise mudane workday. So what are your top 10 song choices to get you through the day?

Nice selection. Looks like you like Raggae music a lot.

I don't remember hearing any songs by Sek Loso before but I'll be sure to give them a listen if I can. My fave Thai band is Bodyslam. Very mat rock. Have you heard?

I like Andrea Bocelli's version of Besame Mucho best. But you're right, there's millions of versions out there.

Hey, just a thought, play In My Life during your wedding. =P

Never heard of bodyslam... i only have the Loso Cd cos i heard some thai band playing in a local Phuket pub. Also quite Mat Rock... I think they follow Scorpion's style just like all Mat Rocks.

I love Bob Marley. Have quite a lot of his songs few hundred of them...
You should listen to the Chieftians featuring Diana Krall singing Danny Boy... very zen... you can imagine yourself sitting in a glen somewhere listening to them sing...
