Why Top-Random # Lists are stupid

I hate top anything lists, but the blogging community is awash with much-deserved bitching about Rolling Stone's Top 50 rock songs of all time. To kill a little time, I'm playing around with some song lists of my own. I encourage you to offer your lists in the comments. (Oh, and a new real post is below this one).

1. Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan
2. Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
3. Imagine - John Lennon
4. What's Going On? - Marvin Gaye
5. Respect - Aretha Franklin


MY TOP FIVE FROM THE ROLLING STONE TOP 50

26. A Day In The Life - The Beatles
10. What'd I say? - Ray Charles
27. Layla - Derek and the Dominoes
30. I Walk The Line - Johnny Cash
48. All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix

MY TOP FIVE SONGS I'M EMBARASSED TO SAY I LOVE

1. Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond
2. Already Gone- The Eagles
3. Rhinestone Cowboy - Glen Campbell

3. Three Fine Daughters - Eddie from Ohio
4. Positive Friction - Donna the Buffalo
5. No Depression - Uncle Tupelo

MY TOP FIVE COVER SONGS (which is to say, I really like the originals but don't mind these covers)

1. Little Wing - Stevie Ray Vaughan
2. You Really Got Me - Van Halen
3. Higher Ground - Red Hot Chile Peppers
4. North Country Girl (aka Girl of North Country) - Acoustic Syndicate
5. Suite: Judy Blue Eyes - Eddie from Ohio

MY TOP FIVE BOB DYLAN SONGS

4. Don't Think Twice
5. Subteranean Homesick Blues

FIVE SONGS I'VE SANG AT A KARAOKE BAR

1. Thank God I'm a Country Boy - John Denver
2. Mama Tried - Merle Haggard via Grateful Dead
3. Be My Baby Tonight - I have no idea what pop country band sings this
4. Dixie Land Delight (including a rap version with my brother)
5. Georgia - Ray Charles (this actually turned out much better than it should've)

MY TOP FIVE SONGS I LISTEN TO TO EXACERABATE A SULLEN MOOD

1. The End - The Doors
2. You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones
3. Some Chris Isaak song I can't remember right now, but it's on the Wild at Heart Soundtrack
4. Black Eye - Uncle Tupelo
5. Shape of the World - John Gorka

...and finally...

MY TOP FIVE ROCK SONGS (and, again, this is really, really wrong, but the best I can do after an afternoon of thought)

5. Crazy Train - Ozzy
