Not 'alf

Over at the Torygraph a young man has drawn up his 100 top songs. 
I have 28 of them on my MP3 player, including 5 in the top 10, surprisingly, but none of his top ten would be in my top 10.
How did you score? 
Anyone brave enough to list their favourite 5 or 10 songs, so that we can all ridicule you?

Wind beneath my Wings - Canon & Ball

Beside this masterpiece everything else is just taseless shallow pap.

Charles Wesley's greatest hits.

The Pope sings Elton John.

Great Funeral Hymns of the Victorian Era.

It all goes downhill after that.

Anybody who puts Everybody Hurts in their top ten can't be taken seriously.

What an egotistical idea. I must do it one day.

I love nos 36 to 39 inclusive. As soon as I decide on my top 10 - I change my mind immediately.
I didn't see 'Louie Louie'.
But my all time favourite is still Jennifer Rush!

He has appalling taste. The only ones from his ten I'd even consider for mine would be Lola and Redemption Song. Mine would change by the hour anyway which is why I've always refused to go on Desert Island Discs.

And he included Hallelu...shit, I can't even bring myself to spell it.

Oh, they're all at it. The grauniad has a similar thing starting this weekend, though they went for a thousand just to beat the 'graph into the ground.

You won't catch me wasting my time with such pursuits.
