"Friday Five" - Steph's 5 Favorite Songs EVER

Today, I'm playing along with Beth over @ Just Me and My Life - here are my top five favorite songs EVER - the songs that inspire me the most and always make me feel "music happy" (in no particular order, because all are equally awesome):

Bright Lights (More Than You Think You Are)- MB20
This album was released in fall 2002 - my freshman year in College, and my first year living away from home, in the city of Huntington.  It sort of "spoke" to me in a way - I would also have to say that this album is my absolute favorite album of any artist - of all time :)

Always Be My Baby (Daydream)- Mariah Carey
Oh, the days of being a pre-teen... when I started discovering boys, Mariah was always there to explain everything about love.  I think this is one of the sweetest, cutest girly songs ever - and I loved when David Cook performed a cover of it on American Idol.

Spaceship (College Dropout) - Kanye West
"I've been workin' this graveshift, and I ain't made Sh*!,
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly... past the sky"
- Story of my life when it comes to being employed.  Isn't it everyone's? 

Rhythm Nation (Rhythm Nation 1814) - Janet Jackson
I was super young when I first heard this song - it opened my eyes up to the realities of the world we live in today, as well thinking critically about racial prejudice and being socially aware. I knew at a very young age that it wasn't right to be a close-minded.  Thank you, Miss Janet.

Ants Marching (Under the Table and Dreaming) - Dave Matthews Band
Who doesn't want to just get up, get happy, and dance around when this is played? 
It's my favorite DMB song of all time - since the age of 12.

And there you have it!  My favorite songs ever, included on almost all of my Ipod playlists - even if they don't match the playlist theme.  My must haves.  My forever loves.  My five favorite songs ever...

Many thanks to Beth - feel free to check out her blog and participate in Friday Five!

Oh I remember beging my mom for the special "single" edition CD of You'll always be my baby. It had 5 different versions of the same song and I listed to it at least an infinity of times.

Great list!
