    • 10. No Rain by Blind Melon
      This song was always good, but once i saw the music video for it, it was over and i was completely in love. Especially when it made it to "Pop-Up Video" and we learnt more about what it meant and about the bumblebee.
    • 9. Heart-shaped Box by Nirvana
      this is such a good pump-up song. you can just get so into it and really relate to it.
    • 8. Inside Out by Eve 6
      this song is so fun and easy to like. i like to sing along to it..how about you?
    • 7. Betterman by Pearljam
      amazing lyrics. all about good song. so pretty that it's not even funny. not EVEN funny.
    • 6. Breakfast @ Tiffany's by Deep Blue Something
      This song, though the lyrics are very upfront and personal, they are so good and this song is addictive. once you pop you just CANT stop. YOU CANT.
    • 5. Champagne Supernova by Oasis
      GOOD SONG BOYS. it's super long but every minute of it is worth listening too. love love love it.
    • 4. Black Balloon by Goo Goo Dolls
      So much passion. Put a little hot-tottie lead singer on top and you couldn't ask for anything more. one of the most meaningful lyrics you will ever here..dont let them pass you by. LISTEN HARD BOYS.
    • 3. Crush by Dave Matthews Band
      definitly up there on my list of prettiest songs ever written. i am kind of addicted to dave. i have yet to see him live but it's just because he wont come anywheres near where i live. i get a little upset when i think about it. i do.
    • 2. Let Her Cry by Hootie And The Blowfish
      One of my favouritest songs of all time. I tend to belt this one out. Heard it live, thats right, LIVE.
    • 1. Push by Matchbox 20
      No words can say how much this song means to me. amazing band, lead singer....gorgeous. SERIOUSLY gorgeous, but more importantly, the song...i just cant explain..but completely unforgettable. i could play it a thousand times straight and still be itching to play it again.

    These are not in particular order necessary. SOMEWHAT, but not competely. There were too many to choose from to make it that precise.
