    • 10. To The Moon And Back by Savage Garden
      I couldn't leave this great pop band off the list and this is my favourite of theirs. AUSSIE ROCKS
    • 9. Walkin On The Sun by Smashmouth
      Apart from this song and Allstar, Smashmouth really suck in my opinion but I do love this song, it's great.
    • 8. Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind
      A great song! Lively, fun, it just rocks!
    • 7. Heart In Hand by Vertical Horizon
      It's impossible to leave out Vertical Horizon from this list, they're just so good, and this earlier one of theirs just does it for me. Matt Scannel's guitar playing is just awesome.
    • 6. Ana's Song by Silverchair
      Silverchair are a pretty good band and this is them at their best. Miss You Love is also good but I like this one just a little more. AUSSIE ROCKS!
    • 5. 72 Hour Daze by Taxiride
      I like this one only slightly more than Get Set. AUSSIE ROCKS!
    • 4. With Arms Wide Open by Creed
      I love this song more every time I hear it, Creed rock.
    • 3. Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls
      One of the greats of the 90s from one of the great bands. Plus it reminds me of my girlfriend.
    • 2. Push by Matchbox 20
      The song that made them famous. The emotion Rob puts in his singing is like no other singer, and this is their best one.
    • 1. Smooth by Santana
      When this was new I didn't like it all that much, but it grew on me very quickly and has been my favourite song for more than a year now. It's one of those songs that gets tattoes on your brain. And besides, you'd expect something this good when you combine Santana and Rob Thomas.

    Impossible to have a real top 10 favourite songs from the 90s, there are just so many great ones.
