ATM, it's a mixture of Michael Jackson songs, and songs from The Wire:

Way Down In The Hole (opening credits to The Wire) - The Blind Boys Of Alabama

Sixteen Tons - The Nighthawks

Assume The Position - Lafayette Gilchrist

Step by Step - Jesse Winchester

I Walk On Glided Splinters - Paul Weller

Fast Train - Solomon Burke

The Fall (closing credits to The Wire) - Blake Leyh

Beat It, Rock With You, Thriller, The Way You Make Me Feel, You Are Not Alone, Heal The World, Man In The Mirror, Remember The Time, You Rock My World, and Earth Song. All by Micheal Jackson. BTW, his album sales are now through the roof. His CDs are selling out in every shop. They're supposedly going to become collectors items now. Also, the prices are going up in the shops as well. Hey, you'd do the same, right?

I'll look for some links to those Wire songs right now.

This probably isn't #1, but definitely ONE of my most favorites.

LOL @ Richie Sambora at the end of his solo with his mouth open. Awesome. Nice job on the talk box too. ^_^

Pretty fly - The Offspring

Hahah, an all time classic. :P

I do love 'The kids aren't aright' by the Offspring though. Definitely in my top 20.

Also like:

Feeling this - Blink

Buck Rogers - Feeder

Stan - Eminem

Snow - RHCP

Don't Mug yourself - The streets

High - Feeder

Lazy Generation - F ups (Burnout 3 soundtrack)

Lose yourself - Eminem

Stay together for the kids - Blink

But that's not in order, nor complete, by any means.

Just wanted to mention, Eminem is originally from Detroit (I live in the metro) and my French/creative writing teacher knew/knows Eminem. They both used to work in the same pizza shop whilst she was going to college. Apparently he would come in high a lot. One of my mate's dad also knows him. The city of Detroit isn't all that far from where I live, probably like 15-25 minutes or so driving on the highway. Kinda cool.

That being said, I also like both of those songs I bolded, especially Stan.

Quite a few currently, all from the magnificent American TV show, The Wire:

Way Down In The Hole - all 5 versions, by The Blind Boys Of Alabama, Tom Waits - which is the original from the 1980s, The Neville Brothers, Domaje, and Steve Earle.

Assume The Position - Lafayette Gilchrist

Step By Step - now one of my all-time favourite songs, by Jesse Winchester

Feel Alright - Steve Earle

Fast Train, another stone-cold classic, by Solomon Burke

I Walk On Gilded Splinters - Paul Weller

The Body Of An American - a fantastic Irish-American song, by The Pogues

Efuge Efuge, again another great song, and entirely fitting, by Stelios Kazantzidis

The Life, The Hood, The Streets - Mullyman

The Fall - one of the greatest end themes for a TV show, by Blake Leyh.

I'll post video links to them tomorrow, if possible. Step By Step is almost impossible to locate, so not that one. If you've heard it, you don't need any reminding about it. It's probably one of your favourite songs as well.

And I gotta re-quote this, from MishoM. I don't think anyone noticed it before:
