    • 10. If It Makes You Happy by Sheryl Crow

    • 9. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
      It's an essential 90s song. There is no 90s grunge without "Jeremy"...

    Nirvana sucked.
    By: Tommy Sontag
    • 10. How Bizarre by OMC
      I don't know why, but I love this song. It's just one of those fun-to-listen-to meaningless songs.
    • 9. Beautiful Day by U2
      Hard to believe U2 is still producing some of the best music out there.
    • 8. Good Mother by Jann Arden
    • 7. That Girl by Shaggy
      There had to be one Shaggy song on this list, and in my opinion, it had to be off the Hotshot album... this is the song I chose.
    • 6. Omobolasire by Prozzak
      The first time I heard this song I loved it... and still do.
    • 5. When I'm Up (I Can't Get Down) by Great Big Sea
      I could have filled the top 10 with Great Big Sea songs... but that wouldn't have made a very interesting list.
    • 4. Back 2 Good by Matchbox 20
      I figured this list needed a longer, slower song
    • 3. Mr. Jones by Counting Crows
      Counting Crows - simply fantasgreat!
    • 2. So Beyond Me by Sloan
      A great song off a great album from a highly underated group.
    • 1. Brian Wilson by Barenaked Ladies
      Quite simply the best song of all time.

    I tried to avoid putting any artist on my list more than once. Had the list been 100 songs long there might have been room for that. There were a few songs that should have been on this list... had I not heard them 50 billion times - to the point where hearing them made want to drive my car in a lake and enjoy my eternal sleep.
