I keep a separate list of greatest songs, as distinct from greatest "tracks". The tracks would be songs where the performance/recording is the most important thing. Among my greatest songs, six would be:


"Someone To Watch Over Me" (George & Ira Gershwin)

"Shipbuilding" (Elvis Costello & Clive Langer)

"Here, There and Everywhere" (Paul McCartney)

"My Funny Valentine" (Richard Rogers & Lorenz Hart)

"America" (Paul Simon)

"The Last Time I Saw Richard" (Joni Mitchell)

It's EDM, I wouldn't expect most people to know lots of Dubstep, DnB, Electro House. The poster before me seemed to be some metal I think. Then there was other rock from others. Everything In It's Right Place by Radiohead is a fantastic song.
