All-Time Top 10

Recently, my wife and I made a list of our top 10 songs of all time. I could just as easily come up with 4 other lists of 10 songs that I love equally, but here's mine in chronological order.

"The Bewlay Brothers" by David Bowie, from Hunky Dory
"Last Goodbye" by Jeff Buckley, from Grace
"Falling" by Ben Kweller, from Sha Sha
"Caring is Creepy" by The Shins, from Oh, Inverted World
"Samson" by Regina Spektor, from Songs
"Take Me to the Hospital" by the Faint, from Saddle Creek 50
"Staring at the Sun" by TV on the Radio, from Young Liars and Desparate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes
"Twilight" by the Raveonettes, from Pretty in Black
"Ice Cream" by Muscles, from Guns Babes Lemonade
"The Hollows" by Why?, from Alopecia

The list is a little contemporary-heavy, but it's meant to be personal. These are the songs that I enjoy most at this point in my life, although I had to take a hatchet to a list of 40 to cut it down this much. Post your 10 as well!
