There are a lot of good songs out there, it's true. I tend to like most types of music. Give me a sweet bass line, and I'll start to drool...or dance. Or both. Once upon awhile ago, I was asked to name my top ten Beatles, just for the fun of it. It was silly, because the list changes all the time. But it made me wonder if I had a top ten "any song" list. That's ridiculous was my first thought. I like too many songs. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I do. The following five (in no particular order) will always be listed on top of Brittany's Favorite Songs. You'll probably notice that there are no Beatles songs here. They don't count, for they are a category unto themselves.
Linus and Lucy
Yep, that's right. This is that catchy Charlie Brown tune that everyone should be familiar with. It's fun to listen to and play as well. I don't think I could ever get sick of this song. Too much fun.
Jerk It Out
I first heard this song last summer when Becky and Garrison took me home from chemistry. We all pretty much went crazy. Pretty much. Ever since, I've just really liked this song, probably more then I should. The lyrics make no sense, and it's the same little tune over and over. But it's catchy, and that's what counts.
I'm not sure why I fell in love with this song. For some reason, it's found a place in my liking, and it's here to stay. Like the previous two songs, and the two to be listed, it's catchy. I can't listen to it when I'm trying to do something productive, like clean my room, because I start dancing.
I heart disco music. This song is amazing. Many fond memories are tied to it. It's another that can always get me to dance.
The Sweetest Thing
The funny thing about this song is that it's not my favorite U2 song. Weird, eh? That's kind of strange that it passes up the others in the long stretch. This song never fails to cheer me up. It's also fun to tinker on the piano with.
And there you have it. All these links to wikipedia are kind of to really interesting. Please don't judge me or my musical interests by this list. I tend to be a classic rock, jazz, and classical chick, but most of these songs don't relate to those broad fields. These five are just random songs that have and will continue to stick with me. I guess that in order for a song to qualify (as these do) for my top five to ten list, it has to be catchy, have a fun bass line, make me want to dance, and I can't ever get sick of it. Without one of those factors, the tune will fall short.
