    By: Celeste Keenan
    • 10. I Want It That Way. by Backstreet Boys
      Now I love the Backstreet Boys and I don't really care who knows it. I love that Kevin Richardson had a solo in this song. Bedamned to anyone who says that Kevin can't sing.
    • 9. Livin La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin
      This is another song that I like for reasons that I can't explain or I don't want to explain.
    • 8. Freak On A Leash by KoRn
      Ah yes, Jonathan Davis. There's nothing sexier than a guy with a paper thin moustache.
    • 7. You Could Be Mine by Guns
      I love this song!
    • 6. No Scrubs by TLC
      A great, "get the F**K out of my face" song!
    • 5. Ava Adore by The Smashing Pumpkins
      What an awesome song! Good use of synthisizers and key boards!
    • 4. Building a Mystery by Sara MacLachlan
      One of my favourite songs of all time.
    • 3. I'll Stick Around by Foo Fighters
      The Name Says It All.
    • 2. Creep by TLC
      I love the fact that TLC can make a song this good and still be a little bit whacky at the same time.
    • 1. I Drive Myself Crazy by N SYNC
      This is a song where the boys are locked up in a "nut house" because they pushed their girlfriends away. I'm a hopeless romantic and find that this song fits the bill perfectly.
