Here's something interesting. I'm sure those of you post in music often like me know how unique my taste of music is and how much I hate almost everything following the 1970's. Well, I'm feeling adventurous so give my your top 10 songs of any genre or year and I will listen to them with an open mind. I know none of you care and none of you are going to bother listening to any of them, but I'm going to post mine anyway because I'm obnoxious. It's impossible for me to even whittle it down to my top fifty songs so these ten will just be any ten songs that I like.

I don't mean this in a bad way, but I think 'unique' is kind of a stretch. It may not be all top 40, but it's still mostly really popular soft/country-rock. I used to be really into that stuff, but it kinda bores me now. Still some classics in your top 10 though.

Yeah, just 10 songs is kinda hard, so consider this is a list of songs that are in my constant rotation. 1 song per artist:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3K-2Sfzs6w Brand New - Luca (nearly any song of this album would qualify tbh.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knU9gRUWCno Strokes - Someday
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcalJSO6jDY Elliott Smith - Say Yes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUNb7N2VvdM Arctic Monkeys - Fluorescent Adolescent
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0bZtf5MCzY Nine Inch Nails - Hurt
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IsXKMkDAMQ The Mountain Goats - The Best Ever Death Metal Band Out Of Denton
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_i1xk07o4g Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC3IrqUpm9U Ramshackle Glory - Your Heart Is A Muscle The Size Of Your Fist
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOJ0uU0Fmhk Baths - Rain Smell
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tgcc5V9Hu3g OR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6BYCcy5aeo David Bowie - Heroes/LCD Soundsystem - All I Want (the second is very directly influenced by the first song, they're both great, my preferred one depends on second of day so I put them both)

If you're interested I'd like to explain why I think all these songs are so great :D

Brand New - Luca: This song largely got me into more downbeat music, shattered my preconceptions of the emo-genre, swayed me from the classic rock to the more alt side and was the first song that got my into my now favourite band. I still love the part at the end where everything gets crazy and they crank the guitars up to 10.

Strokes - Someday: IMO the closest to a perfect rock song there is. I don't love this for personal memories and life changing moments or something, I just think it's a 10/10 combo of great lyrics, vocals and music.

Elliott Smith - Say Yes: By far my favourite Elliott Smith song. I have a huuugggeee soft spot for laid back acoustic singy-songwrity music but I never really liked Elliott Smith until I heard this song. The opening lyrics still make me smile every-time, until the song turns around and makes it more bittersweet.

Arctic Monkeys - Fluorescent Adolescent: Another perfect little rock song. The guitar riff, Alex Turner's voice, the great lyrics about growing up, I just love it.

Nine Inch Nails - Hurt: Most recent discovery on this list, only got into it a couple days ago. I already loved the Johnny Cash cover before, but when I first really listened I was blown away. This song manages to be so abrasive, yet so graceful at the same time It finds beauty in dissonance. Works best in the context of the album, but it's still a great standalone song.

The Mountain Goats - The Best Ever Death Metal Band Out Of Denton: I'm not really a lyrics person, so it's kinda weird that this song gets in on almost lyrics alone, but they just make me so happy. A story about 2 friends who start a crappy highschool-band and dream on making it big only to get their dreams crushed by school. I love how there's no imagery or metaphor in this song, just a great story.

Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma: Great song that gets on here for making me realize that I really like me some solid poppish elements in my music, and also making me realize that a lot of the music I listened to, even the more experimental stuff had a lot more pop in it than I thought. IMO most music without any traces of pop is boring.

Ramshackle Glory - Your Heart Is A Muscle The Size Of Your Fist: The song that made me fall in love with the folk-punk genre. I owe my username to this band's singer (who practically is the band). Although the original, fully instrumentated version is great (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC3IrqUpm9U) my favourite is still the solo acoustic one is still my favourite (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA_o5Pc3lL4). The great singalongable nature of the chorus, and the general uplifting of the song just pumps me up every time. Also the last verse about a friend's suicide is ridiculously powerful (and for some reason still uplifting in a way).

Baths - Rain Smell: This song changed my opinion on electronic music. I never had anything against it, but I did think it couldn't be as emotional as non-electronic music. When this song came on while listening to the album I kinda sat still for the entire time. As for the music itself it's a great downtempo electronic beat, with the continuous sound of rain in the background, and some beautiful repeating piano scheme.

David Bowie - Heroes/LCD Soundsystem - All I Want : I don't know if I have to even explain Heroes's appeal, but Bowies emotion when he starts straining his voice near the end is just so great that it's impossible not too love. As for All I Want, though some may consider it a rip-off, it didn't only copy Heroes very well, it actually managed to recapture it's magic, and even add some new things to it. I personally like the guitar riff here better than the one on Heroes, it's just such a happy riff compared to the rather desperate lyrics. Both 10/10 songs.

I really can't provide a Top 10, there are too much incredibly good musics out there. However, what I can do is provide 10 great songs! I said songs and not music so most of the "classical" era will be forgotten. S'rry Beethoven.

Rage Against The Machine - Killing In The Name Of
A pure anarchy song, violent and rebel. A excellent mix of rap and Metal.
dxk3c_SbWMg

Rammstein - Engel
Pure Rammstein, pure Industrial Metal, feel it.
x2rQzv8OWEY

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody
Probably the most known song of Queen. The best rock band of all time actually, surpassing The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the sonorities they use and the incredible talent of Freddy Mercury definitely put Queen next to the Gods of Rock.
fJ9rUzIMcZQ

Sex Pistols - God Save The Queen
The Sex Pistols are the pure personification of the Punk movement, both their music and attitudes made them a monument. God Save The Queen criticizes monarchy, No Future!
RvMxqcgBhWQ

Metallica - Enter Sandman
One of Metallica's best songs in my opinion, exit light, enter night...
uY3LAFJbKyY

The Doors - Light My Fire
Beautiful chilling song, rock and Jimmy (Morrison) a monument of Rock. Rip Jim...
deB_u-to-IE

W.A.Mozart - Queen Of The Night Aria
One of the most difficult singing in the world. Few manage to sing it, but, wow, that's a vocal master race.
OP9SX7V14Z4

The Offspring - Slim Pickens Does The Right Thing And Rides A Bomb To Hell
I'm a huge fucking fan of The Offspring and really like Slim Pickens, enjoy.
5YCy9rLMuwM

Alestorm - Hangover
Alestorm, pirates and folk metal, what does the people want more?
rBg7ptyUt0U

The Rolling Stones - Doom And Gloom
Good 'ole Rolling Stones, orgasmic riff, Jagger's vocals and 200% stoned.
rPFGWVKXxm0

There are soooo much other bands&musics&styles I would like to talk about.
