Independence Day - Bruce

It's over - Roy Orbison

Long long time - Linda Ronstadt

We've got tonight - Bob Seger

Me and Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin

Positively 4th Street - Bob Dylan

Hearts and Bones  - Paul Simon

Ten is really not very much for this kind of task. Actually, it should include Elvis, Beach Boys, Beatles, Stones...

In no particular order:

Jungleland-Bruce Springsteen.

Idiot Wind-Bob Dylan; the live version from Hard Rain.

Gimme Shelter-Rolling Stones.

Wall Of Death-Richard and Linda Thompson.

Who Knows Where The Time Goes-Sandy Denny. (Thought about a more original choice than this, Sandy Denny's signature song, but could not decide which one; so then this, a song in the category 'what music should be played on your funeral').

Driver 8-R.E.M. I can not make a list like this without a song of my favourite band of all time, but could not decide which one; choose this one, the first R.E.M. song I ever heard, still one of my favourites.

Ocean Rain-Echo & The Bunnymen.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out-The Smiths.

New Year's Day-U2.

In My Hour Of Darkness-Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris. (Hesitated between this one and Return Of The Grievous Angel).

Racing

I'd like to find room for Lawyers, guns & money by Warren Zevon but I haven't a clue what to leave out. I'll give it some further thought when I have a space is my busy schedule.

Thunder Road

This needs no explanation!

Holy wars...the punishment due -  Megadeth

A tale of two halves, a classic and constantly changing song on one of the best metal albums.

Orion - Metallica

Cliff Burton was a genius and this is one of his finest contributions.

Animal - Def Leppard

Just a damn fine song off another excellent album

Infinite Dreams - Iron Maiden

I had a few maiden songs to choose from, but this one gets it for the instrumental section.

Ants Marching - Dave Matthews Band

A nice metaphor.

Waiting for a star to fall - Boy Meets Girl

A song I've recently rediscovered from my youth. The video is excellent.

Temptation - Wet Wet Wet

My dad actually liked this band as well. Interesting lyrics. Also there is a naughty word in it.

Pull Me Under - Dream Theater

Their only hit single, but still musically magnificent.

Tunnel of love - Dire Straits

This is like a question off pop master, same title different song. The ending is sublime.

All this might change tomorrow of course. No Chris Rea, no Beatles, no Satriana...difficult choices!

One of my favorite Metallica songs and my favorite Iron Maiden song. Both are amazing.
