I love music. When my fiance and I started seriously talking about getting married one of the first things I said was, “I can’t wait to come up with a list of music to play at the reception!” I was more excited about that aspect of planning than, say, the decorations, venue, cake … Even the dress. (Yes, I realize that’s probably crazy.)
Anyway, I’m curious … What are your current top 10 favorite songs?
Mine change from time to time, but here are the 10 songs I’d consider my current favorites:
1.) “Junk Bond Trader” by Elliott Smith (This one will always be my all-time favorite, as it has a lot of personal meaning for me.)
2.) “Shiny” by The Decemberists
3.) “Side Walk When She Walks” by Alexisonfire
4.) “Song Seven” by Interpol
5.) “Caught A Lite Sneeze” by Tori Amos
6.) “Lightness” by Death Cab for Cutie
7.) “The Geeks Were Right” by The Faint
8.) “Pachuca Sunrise” by Minus the Bear
9.) “The Walk” by Imogen Heap
10.) “Inertiatic Esp” by The Mars Volta
(It was actually really difficult to limit myself to only 10. Haha.)

1. The Clash- London Calling
2. Lucero- Sixteen
3. The Gaslight Anthem- Handwritten
4. Minus the Bear- Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse
5. The Cure- Just Like Heaven
6. Neutral Milk Hotel- In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
7. Bright Eyes- Oh You Are the Roots
8. Phantogram- When I’m Small
9. Band of Horses- No Ones Gonna Love You
10. Hank Williams Jr.- Family Tradition
These are the first ones I could think of. It’s too hard to pick a top 10! I judged it by the songs I sing really loud in the car, most often

@lashphi: I had a hard time eliminating Neutral Milk Hotel and Bright Eyes from my list. If I’d done a top 20 (or even 15) they would have made the list. I’m actually listening to Bright Eyes as I type this. Haha.

I love this thread! I’m not sure I can name ten songs… a lot of my style of music is live concerts and repeats of those concerts… but here goes!
1. Shut The Door by Zedd
2. Echo By Trapt
3. Alive by Krewalla
4. Shewolf by David Guetta
5. Home by Phillip Phillips
6. Spectrum by Zedd
7. Feed The Dada by Dada Life
8. Anything by Queen
9. Anything in the Phantom Of The Opera
10. Anything in The Nightmare Before Christmas
Bascially just anything that makes me want to sing my brains out. =) Lots of dubstep/techno in my top stuff though so it’s kinda hard to do that haha.

@S2013: You have very eclectic musical taste! On another note, I love “The Greatest” … So pretty.

@angelinthesnowxo: I hate finding threads weeks after the last post! The Faint and Interpol are my favorite bands! If dancing to “Evil” weren’t weird, I would do it! “Slow Hands” is on the must-play list.

@MeghN: Haha, I do the same thing all the time! At least this one isn’t time sensitive.
I’m glad to see another fan of Interpol and The Faint on the boards! I’m definitely going to play at least one song by each at my wedding … I’m like, “Who cares if it’s not lovey-dovey and traditional? I like it and it will make me happy to dance around to it!” Haha.
