    OK, I'm not even gonna suggest a limit here,
    or even that the songs be your top favorites.

    But I'm gonna list 10 that were special to me
    at particular times and places, their order is
    strictly alphabetical. Feel free to go nuts here...

    Brandy (you're a fine girl) - Looking Glass
    I Will Always Love You - Dolly Parton (sorry Whitney...)
    Kentucky Rain - Elvis
    Long Black Veil - Sammi Smith
    Sound Of Silence - Simon and Garfunkel
    Take Me Home Country Roads - John Denver
    The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia - Reba McEntire
    The Rose - Bette Midler

    Cheers, Mac :)

    Man this can take a while.... I could be here for hrs. :)
    I am a big music fan & have been in a audio chatroom where all we did was play music & MP3's.........
    I have many many favorites. My own personel taste in music is diversified. My favorite style is soul, R&B & blues... but I like some country too.

    My all time favorite song has got to be (drum roll goes here)
    1. Rainy Night In Georgia by Brooks Benton OR Conway Twitty & Sam Moore ( can't make up my mind which i like best ) There are just so many........ don't know where to start.





    I'll add more to this later

    This is so difficult.
    I can't choose 10 favourites, cos appreciation of certain tunes changes over time, and I'm constantly introduced to new music.

    So, how's about an alphabet of artists with a tune apiece. This is by no means sufficient to express my faves, and in many cases I really like a number of tunes by each artist, or can think of several artists for most letters, but I'll give it a go:

    A) Aim & Kate Rogers - Sail
    B) Beastie Boys - Jimmy James
    C) Coldcut - More Beats And Pieces
    D) The Doors - People Are Strange
    E) Echo & The Bunnymen - Killing Moon
    F) The Foo Fighters - This Is A Call
    G) Genesis - Looking For Someone
    H) The Herbalizer & Latryx - 8pt Agenda
    I) Incubus - Are You In
    J) The Jam - Start
    K) The Kinks - You Really Got Me
    L) Lemon Jelly - The Staunton Lick
    M) Morrissey - Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together
    N) NoFX - Vincent (Don McLean cover)
    O) Only Child & Kriminul - Crazy Rhymin'
    P) Pennywise - Killing Time
    Q) Quincy - Bruce Lee MC
    R) Rae & Christian feat Veba - Spellbound
    S) The Sundays - Wild Horses (Rolling Stones cover)
    T) The The - Love Is Stronger Than Death
    U) UNKLE & Ian Brown - Be There
    V) The Verve - Weeping Willow
    W) The Wonderstuff - Closer To Fine (Indigo Girls cover)
    X) Xymox - Inside Out
    Y) Neil Young - The Needle And The Damage Done
    Z) Zero 7 - Destiny

    My think bone hurts!

    Sysco Kid..... Here are the lyrics to "In the Year 2525"

    IN THE YEAR 2525
    Zager & Evans

    In the year 2525
    if man is still alive
    if woman can survive
    They may find

    In the year 3535
    Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lie
    Everything you think, do and say
    Is in the pill you took today

    In the year 4545
    You ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
    You won't find a thing to chew
    Nobody's gonna look at you

    In the year 5555
    Your arms hangin' limp at your sides
    Your legs got nothin' to do
    Some machine's doin' that for you

    In the year 6565
    You won't need no husband, won't need no wife
    You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
    From the bottom of a long glass tube

    In the year 7510
    If God's a-coming, He oughta make it by then
    Maybe He'll look around Himself and say
    "Guess it's time for the judgement day"

    In the year 8510
    God is gonna shake His mighty head
    He'll either say "I'm pleased where man has been"
    Or tear it down, and start again

    In the year 9595
    I'm kinda wonderin' if man is gonna be alive
    He's taken everything this old earth can give
    And he ain't put back nothing

    Now it's been ten thousand years
    Man has cried a billion tears
    For what, he never knew
    Now man's reign is through

    But through eternal night
    The twinkling of starlight
    So very far away
    Maybe it's only yesterday

    Thanks for your suggestions, robcaro, but none of them really took my fancy!
    I mean, Pia Zadora?!

    I don't really desire to get a "Z", but if I come across one that's cool I'll post it!
