"And when they went to their church, they shook and lurched all over the church floor" -- it's a lyrically vivid song.

My brother and I recently decided the Top 25 songs of our music libraries. A song's inclusion needed to be based on at least one of four criteria: music, vocals, lyrics and socio-psychological impact (so, societal and personal impact). Here's what I ended up with, ordered by date:

Strange Fruit, Billie Holiday, 1939
Roll Over Beethoven, Chuck Berry, 1956
Unchained Melody, The Righteous Brothers, 1965
Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Jimi Hendrix, 1968
War Pigs, Black Sabbath, 1970
All Right Now, Free, 1970
Stairway To Heaven, Led Zeppelin, 1971
We Will Rock You, Queen, 1977
Hot Stuff, Donna Summer, 1979
Ace Of Spades, Motorhead, 1980
Love Will Tear Us Apart, Joy Division, 1980
Take On Me, A-ha, 1984
Fade to Black, Metallica, 1984
Closer, Nine Inch Nails, 1994
Fade Into You, Mazzy Star, 1994
Lil' Boots, Pet, 1996
Kissing You, Des'ree, 1996
My Skin, Natalie Merchant, 1998
New Noise, Refused, 1998
Sugar, System of a Down, 1999
Do What You Have To Do (Live), Sarah McLachlan, 1999
Fallin', Alicia Keys, 2001
( ) [track #1], Sigur Ros, 2002
What Would You Have Me Do, Local H, 2002
Crazy, Gnarls Barkley, 2006

If anyone enjoys music as much, I'd be interested to see what you come up with. I justified each one with a sentence or two explaining the choice, which became integral to breaking the 25 down into a Top 10, which I'm kinda still working on. Fun, fun...

Static -- one of my favorite local stations went off the air and now my radio's first set station is nothing but static.

That's a wonderful idea, JC! One day when I have free time I will narrow a list down, myself. :)
