    • 10. Wonderful by Everclear
      Such an almost bright sounding melody can swallow you up in depression.

      Some of my friends that hate MB20 said this is the only song by them they listen to.
    • 8. Bed Of Lies by Matchbox 20

      Dave Matthews displays excellent guitar skills and an impressive vocal range as well in this song.

      I hate this song. I skip it every time. But when I first listened to it, I was amazed in a different way - this song is the most depressing song I have ever heard.
    • 5. Don't Wanna Miss a Thing by Aerosmith
      Just a catchy song.
    • 4. Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton
      Classic, heartfelt song.
    • 3. Crash by Dave Matthews Band

    • 2. 4 AM by Our Lady Peace
      One of the most touching choruses I have yet to ever listen to.
    • 1. Iris by Goo Goo Dolls
      "You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be" / "And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand" Meaningful lyrics, a melody that never gets old - this song has it all, and I'm sure we can all relate to it.

    Though these songs are amazing to -me- nonetheless, most of you emo/soft/alternative type listeners should try these more than anyone else.
    By: The Grand Pooh -bah
    • 10. Lemon Tree by Fools Garden
      probably the only songs that everyone can remember the words to
    • 9. Peaches by The Presidents Of The U.S.A
      one of those good songs that really don't have a purpose
    • 8. Country House by Blur
      same brit-rock/pop type band as above, but not as pms prone
    • 7. Wonderwall by Oasis
      brit-rock/pop from a pms prone band that changed everything
    • 6. Unbelieveable by Emf
      who could forget these guys?...i nearly did...
    • 5. Fly by Sugar Ray
      brilliant song for the summers.
    • 4. Black-hole Sun by Soundgarden
      big...very big...
    • 3. Nookie by Limp Bizkit

    • 10. Say What You Want by Texas
    • 9. Torn by Natalie Imbruglia
    • 8. You Wanted More by Tonic
    • 7. When You Say Nothing At All by Ronan Keating
      Think Notting Hill. Ok so it's all mushy but it appeals to many.
    • 6. (I'm a) Bitch by Meredith Brookes
      It really does sum us females up.
    • 5. Sway by Bic Runga
      No comment - it's just a great song.
    • 4. Loyal by Dave Dobbyn
      Personal reasons from myself and fellow peers would rate this as a top song. It's a song about love, that bond that is unconditional with its heartache along the way.
    • 3. Angels by Robbie Williams
      Well you did say pop! Robbie has his fans and his cynics but this song will stick around.
    • 2. Slide by Goo Goo Dolls
      "What you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful" - I love that line and the whole song is versatile - you can apply it to any mood!
    • 1. Most Things U2 by U2
      I can't pick just one song but they deserve to be on the Top 10 list. Reasons for this are...every time I hear one of their songs on the radio I leave it on rather than find something else. No matter what mood I am in there is always a song by U2 to help "heighten" my emotions. Their lyrics are powerful.

    Before you scroll any further take note that it is late at night and I'm only scrolling through a little song list I have in front of me! The songs that I have picked tend to run along the same lines with the same meanings (which is why they are on the list together!!) So, they may not be my ultimate Top 10 but they stand out for me and I'll never forget them. I think that makes a top song anyway.

    • 10. Smells like Teen Shirt by Nirvana
