My Top 5 Favourite Songs of All time

This is the list that I am least reluctant to post, simply because it is probably the most personal of all my lists - even including my top 5 saddest songs.  It has taken me years to complile this list and it may even change again over the coming years.  The only song that has never chnged since I was 12 years old is my number one favourite song.  I can't explain why this is my favourite, it simply is.  The remaining four may change but number one is unwavering.  To anyone who knows me, it may even come as a surprise what my favourite song of all time is, but you like what you like.  So this is me laying my muscial heart on the line and opening up to all who take the time to read this blog post.  My top 5 favourite songs of all time.  The first 4 are in no particular order.

5: The Smashing Pumkins - Today

4: Sonic Youth - Wish Fulfillment

3: Manic Street Preachers - Motorcycle Emptiness 

2: Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

Ok, so here's my next top 5 list (I create a million of these in my head, I'm worse than Rob Gordon from High Fidelity).  Here's my  top 5 intro's to songs list, feel free to voice you own opinion.

Top 5 Intro's

1. Happy House - Siousxie and the Banshees. ( I love that it's quite creepy and chilling but perks up at the verses, makes the hairs on my neck stand on end -fantastic).

2. The Trial - Pink Floyd. (Even down to the sound of the courtroom door opening, this intro is another one that stimulates the folicles of my forearms).

3. Thunderstruck - AC/DC.

4. Immigrant Song - Led Zepplin. (Aaaa- aaa -aaaaa- aah, nuff said).

5. Teenage Dream - T-Rex. (It just starts as it means to go on, it's a classic and an underrated T-Rex song).
