    Sometimes a song gets played to death and people who listen to that band repeatedly get tired of it. That's one explanation. And I don't think it was a matter of best songs, but personal preference.

    Oz Well-Known Member

    Bye, Bye, Bye got old, old, old in no time. Never cared for "Pop" except when J-Timberlake talks about the "ice around my neck." But "Tearin' Up My Heart" almost made the cut -- last one out but could have very easily been top three.

    OK, I took this to mean one group/singer and three songs...not a list of 15-20 songs..sheesh....anyway...

    Double J...I love that you love some George! LOL He's the best. Just narrowly missing out was ..."A fire I can't put out" and "The chair" which are personal faves. I'd play GS Greatest hits over and over till hell freezes over. Just awesome stuff.
    Ace: again...good George stuff.

    As for everyone else..focus in! focus in! This isn't pick your 20 best. This is like Pick 3 lottery dangit!
