25 songs...

OK, so I've seen a few of these recently..the challenge is to make a list of 20 songs that mean something to you. I tried and tried and tried but I just couldn't condense it to 20. Maybe that's a testament to how much these songs actually mean to me? Anyways, without further delay...25 songs that mean a lot to me:

The Knife...NY Hotel

Radiohead...Exit Music (For A Film)

Bjork...Enjoy

The Beatles...Strawberry Fields Forever

Elliott Smith...Miss Misery

Pearl Jam...All or None

Beirut...Nantes

Pixies...Velouria

Mic Christopher...Skylarkin'

Muse...Citizen Erazed

The Smiths...Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now

PJ Harvey...Rid Of Me

Foo Fighters...Everlong

Damien Rice...Prague

Weezer...Say It Aint So

SoKo...I'll kill her

Nirvana...Aneurysm

Beck...Lost Cause

Smashing Pumpkins...Daydream

Eels...Elizabeth On The Bathroom Floor

Leonard Cohen...Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye

Yeah Yeah Yeahs...Maps

Luke Kelly...Scorn Not His Simplicity ,

Yann Tiersan...Comptine d'un Autre Ete

R.E.M ... Nightswimming

I don't have anything to add other than my word verification letters spell WERP!
Say it out loud, kids! It's delicious :-)

Thanks Guys,

John, your list rocks too... it's hard to argue with the likes of Negative Creep & The Auld Triangle ;). Mix tape heaven...

Brenda, I have no idea what "Werp" means, but it sounds like a possible boy band, just like McFly or Busted...!

For the record, I forgot to mention the classic "N.I.N. - Leaving Hope" in my list, which makes the whole thing very null&void really :(!

lol 25 is just too limiting for you!

Ps now it says "Pygordi", which sounds like some lovely Italian dessert.
