    Hehe... Often times with these lists, people can't decide so they give more than the requested amount. You're cheating right now because I asked for your best five songs of all time, all genre and languages included, not just American songs. If you favourite song of all time is Chinese, by all means, let us know.

    OIC, so you made it much harder than I thought, jeesh, any language and genre?

    1 Saved the Best For Last by Vanessa Williams
    2 Jan Jan Ga Ga by Dicky Cheung
    3 Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You by Glenn Medeiros
    4 Xiao Li Fei Dao ending song by Peter Ho
    5 Vien Du Mua Xuan by Thai Doanh Doanh (Viet version) - I actually like the chinese version, but never seem to know what the chinese title is or who it is sung by.

    If anyone can help me out, anyone know who sang this song in chinese. The song I am looking for was originally featured on a 90s Taiwanese series.

    Would people prefer 10 songs instead? If that would make it a little more interesting, I'll change it to 10. I thought that 10 would be too hard because the more songs there is, the harder it is to put them in order. At the same time with 10 songs, there's more variety. So should I change it to 10?

    1. "I Want To Hold Your Hand" - the Beatles

    2. "I Saw Her Standing There" - the Beatles

    3. "She Loves You" - the Beatles

    4. "Yesterday" - the Beatles

    5. "Let It Be" - the Beatles

    What? You somehow thought my list *wouldn't* be dominated by the Beatles?

    I have a general rule in my musical tastes: the Beatles first; everybody else afterwards.

    I was tempted to list five New Order songs, but I thought REALLY hard and went down to memory lane from the day I was born to present day to dig up songs that I like very very much, but which I kind of forgot about.

    This is one of the hardest question ever asked.

    It was difficult but I believe this is my top 5.
    1. Giant Steps - John Coltrane
    2. So What - Miles Davis
    3. 愛のままにわがままに 僕は君だけを傷つけない - B'z
    4. The Trooper - Iron Maiden
    5. Time - Pink Floyd

    I love Kagrra, but don't think their old enough. In their place, a song that reminds me of my childhood is in place.

    After Hours - Velvet Underground

    No, no need to. Sometimes I think 5 is already too much. 5 is usually a perfect number. Good enough to not leave the top ones out and little enough to make a person choose between top 5.

    Both songs would be on my top 20. Zombie is very special to me; it would have been my number one song 11 years ago. Whenever I listen to it, lots of memories come up.
