Ten songs that you never get tired of

What are ten songs that you play over and over and never get sick of?

Mines: DJM wink

.

Just My Imagination- The Temptations (Original lineup)

A Change is Gonna Come- Sam Cooke

Boardwalk Angel- John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown band (from Eddie & the Cruisers)

Landslide- Fleetwood Mac

River Deep Mountain High- Ike & Tina Turner

Human Nature- MJ

Livin' for the City- Stevie Wonder

Stuck on You- Lionel Richie

Nowhere Fast- Fire Inc (from Streets of Fire)

I've Been Loving You Too Long- Otis Redding

.

I didn't include Prince because if I had it would be the whole list but right now my main Can't-stop-playing-it P song is "17 Days"

.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Some nice picks above, "Just My Imagination", "17 Days", "Baby Be Mine", "Ai No Corrida", "Dancewitme"... some of them are a bit overlooked, but they definitely have that "I haven't gotten tired with them yet" factor to them (whereas, say, "Billie Jean" or "Little Red Corvette" I don't want to listen to that often anymore).

'In The Warm Room' - Kate Bush

'Beethoven Piano Sonata no.13 op.27 no.1 (II) - Allegro molto e vivace' - Beethoven

They don't play it on the radio anymore like their other hits like Used To Be My Girl, Backstabbers, and Living For The Weekend. But fortunately I have the album biggrin
