    Toughest question ever on this forum. You could subsitute many other songs from these artists. Way too hard to rank them....

    One - Metallica
    Synchronicity II - Police
    Bad - U2
    Fortress Around Your Heart - Sting
    Born to Run - Bruce
    Allentown - Billy Joel
    He Stopped Loving Her Today - George Jones
    Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash
    Georgia Rain - Trisha Yearwood
    4th of July - Shooter Jennings

    If you disected my Ipod you'd find mostly country, but thats a relatively new thing for me...

            And...........

            1. You Touched Me - Jimmy Murphy

            2. Cigarettes and Whiskey - Levi Mullen

            3. The Home You're Tearing Down - Kimberly Murray

            4. Born 50 years too Late - Joey Allcorn

            5. Just Someone I used to Know - Amber Digby

            6. Blue Darlin' - Leona Williams

            7. After the Fire is Gone - Amber Digby & Justin Trevino

            8. Steel Guitar Song - Kimberly Murray

            9. Hank and Lefty Raised my Country Soul - Kenny Seratt

            10. The Natural Thing to Do - Mike McCoy

            All Country, and except for #10, all from West Texas, where "Old Style" Country lives on. I really like this Music and the People who play it. The local folks here who get together every Saturday night for a "Pickin" session are really into this as well.

            To give you an idea of how we feel, here's a Chorus from J.B.Beverly's "Dark Bar and a Jukebox"

            "Give me a Dark Bar and a Juke Box
            Oh burn that Radio
            Toby just don't cut it
            Give me Haggard, Give me Coe
            And I'm tired of watching Nashville
            and it's Washed up Fashion Show
            'Cause you won't find no Country
            On Country Radio......"

              I'd have a hard time limiting myself to 10 favorite bands, let alone songs. But these are the first ten favorites to jump right out at me, in no particular order:

              1. Badlands - Bruce
              2. Cult of Personality - Living Colour
              3. Enter Sandman - Metallica
              4. Friends in Low Places - Garth
              5. Back in Black - AC/DC
              6. Humans Being - Van Halen
              7. The Rising - Bruce
              8. The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels
              9. Moondance - Van Morrison
              10. Beer for My Horses - Toby Keith w/ Willie Nelson

              and as I look over the list, it's not so much these songs, but the "soundtrack of my life" they represent that is my favorite...
