I think I will go about this task by naming songs that I never get tired of:

A whiter shade of pale - Procul Haram
There is a light that never goes out - Smiths
Now my heart is full - Morrissey
Song for whoever - Beautiful South
The Great Pretender - Freddie Mercury (I like the original version by the Platters too)
California - Josh Ritter
Out of my head - Fastball
The Day Brings - Brad
Amarillo by morning - George Strait


That's enough for one post. I'll think up some more later.
