My Ten Best Songs of All Time
You may not find your song here
Choosing only 10 songs is like looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. There are 100s of songs that would fit this description and naturally they won't all be same in each one's list. While compiling this list, I have deliberately left out the intellectual contents of a song. It is only the musical merit that was taken into account.
Another thing that must strike the readers as odd is that all these songs are from the 60s and 70s. May be I am biased but music-wise, 70s were the golden period. That is when music was music. There were any number of nice songs in the 50s and the 80s too. I have listed only the songs I liked best. Most of my friends thought the compilation is juvenile but justifiable. What do you think?
I have not tagged any explanation for liking these songs. Suffice it to say that I forget myself when I listen to them and that is reason enough for them to find a place in this list.
