Spinning the hottest hits, all night long...

By request, here is a Top 15 Songs posting. It’s a lot harder to pick favorite songs than movies or books. After all, I hear probably close to a hundred songs a day, depending on how often the radio station I listen to rotates their lineup, but I watch only a few movies in a month and read about a book a week. So…I’ll give it a shot but include my usual disclaimer: Even with making it a top 15 list, I’m sure I’ve left some out. I didn't include any Led Zeppelin or Eagles or Stones or Cyndi Lauper or Madonna or Aerosmith or hell, even the entire "Thriller" album....

  1. "You May Be Right" (Billy Joel)
  2. "Come Together" (The Beatles)
  3. "Cold as Ice" (Foreignor)
  4. "Killer Queen" (Queen)
  5. "Fat Bottomed Girls" (Queen)
  6. "You Oughta Know" (Alanis Morissette)
  7. "Let's Go Crazy" (Prince)
  8. "Son of a Son of a Sailor" (Jimmy Buffett)
  9. "No Rain" (Blind Melon)
  10. "Santeria" (Sublime)
  11. "What's Up" (4 Non Blondes)
  12. "T'aint Nobody's Bizness if I Do" (Billie Holiday)
  13. "American Pie" (Don McLean)
  14. "Wonder" (Natalie Merchant)
  15. "Happy Together" (The Turtles)

Drop me a comment with your fav's and raves!
