I have a lot of songs that I love, but you'll see me skipping many songs in any given day on my iPod, depending on the mood I'm in (which dictates what kind of song I feel like listening to)..however, the Top 10 songs I listed I will never skip, because no matter what kind of mood I'm in, these songs always fit in. I call these my "Unskippable Songs."

I'm an albums person myself. I look at songs as scenes from an album. I have no songs on my ipod. Just albums.

All those are really good selections. There are so many songs out there that I only have one favorite that I love to sing: It Takes Two by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock. C'mon gotta give some props to that one. I even got a chance to rock it out in Barcelona Spain last week:
