Top 10 Songs Of All Time

So as I was making this list my wife asked if this top ten list would be "my" top ten songs. Which made this 100 times harder. Then to make matters worse she asked, "If I could only listen to ten songs for the rest of my life, what would they be?" So instead of changing my original list which was an extremely diffcult list to make, I decided to make another list which was just as difficult. The first list is top ten songs of all time. The second is the list of "If I could only listen to ten Songs, what would they be."
No particular order

All Time Ten Greatest songs

1. Bob Marley - Redemption Song
2. Cat Stevens - Trouble
3. The Band - The Weight
4. John Lennon - Imagine
5. Beatles - Blackbird
6. Rolling Stones – Beast Of Burden
7. Jimi Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower
8. Bob Dylan - Shelter From The Storm
9. Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
10. The Who - Baba O'Riley

Shawn's Ten (if he could only listen to ten songs)

No particular order

1.Radiohead – Fake plastic trees
2.Counting Crows – Clolorblind
3.Wilco – How to fight loneliness
4.Emily Roller – Mighty to save
5.Smashing Pumpkins – Disarm
6.Wilco/Elliot Smith/Big Star/Garbage – Thirteen (Big Star Cover)
7.Dave Matthews Band – Christmas Song
8.Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under the Bridge
9.Ben Kweller - Thirteen ( different than Big Star song )
