Well this is a tricky one. The lovely sara over at completely quackers has tagged me (thanks sweetpea x) to a favourite song and not to copy the first line of her post but that is difficult!!!!!
I have so many songs that I'd call my favourites, in fact I have a play list on my computer that is imaginatively called "best songs ever" and it contains over 200.

So let me try and give you 5 in no perticular order (and that is hard).

Well I couldn't have a list without including the doors. If I was pushed to name a favourite band of all time it would have to be the doors I grew up listening to poetic, psychedelic, beauty of jim morrison (I do often think I was born in the wrong era). I have all the albums (including rarities, live performances etc) on C.D and vinyl. There is not a song of there's I don't love, but I shall pick Queen of the highway There is something about this song that just speaks to me.

2. Ok to some this song is a bit cheesy but I love it, and that is Scott mackenzie's San Francisco (can you see a theme here) Ahhh I adore this song is makes me feel so happy. Also this live version contains footage from the incredible 1967 Monterey Pop Festival (how I wish I could have been there alas I wasn't to be born for another 13 years) Watch this video and look out for John Phillips of the mamas and papas wearing an fantastically crazy hat.

3. Jimi Hendrex's All along the watchtower (can you see a theme here) I love the lyrics of this and the hauntingly crying guitar solo is amazing.

4. Right now going way off what you might be imagining I have a bit of a thing for Metallica (only in small doses mind) sometimes a girly girl needs a bit of a shout or needs to feel the cobwebs blown away with a force of a hurricane and Enter sandman does it every time.

5. This is hard, alright David Bowie's Golden years (this is the video from a Knights Tale With the beautiful late Heath Ledger).

Do you know what I have to sneak in one more and that is my new current favourite "why do you let me stay here" By She and Him If I could be any one else other than Kirstan Dunst it would be Zooey Deschanel.

There you go I'll tag anyone who reads my inconsistent ramblings to do the same.
