Top Ten Countdown - Music Blogfest

How in the heck do I always manage to find out about these blogfests ON the day they're happening? We need some sort of master list with all the 'fests in the blogosphere!

Anyway, no Monday Mixtape today. Instead, I'm gonna participate last minute in Alex J. Cavanaugh's Music Blogfest. I still get to share music, which is awesome!

So, without further ado (and very quickly since I have to be to work in like half an hour!), here are my top ten favorite songs:

10. Moon River - Audrey Hepburn/Henry Mancini

As a hardcore Audrey fan, it would be a sin to not include this song. This is a scene from Breakfast at Tiffany's. If you haven't seen it -- WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??
9. There Goes the Boy - Cyndi Thomson. I can't find a video for this song, but it's such a bittersweet story about a girl's first love. The lyrics are here
8. Fragile - Delta Goodrem

Heartbreakingly honest lyrics, gorgeous vocals...gah! I love it!
7. My Immortal - Evanescence. It doesn't get more haunting than this.
6. Iris - Goo Goo Dolls. Love the lyrics.
5. Break Me - Jewel

You guys sensing a theme here? I love me a good, honest ballad. And Jewel's lyrics are just so open and honest.
4. Plane - Jason Mraz

This is the song that made me buy Jason's Mr. A-Z album. I was super bummed upon discovering the album version is a big piano ballad. While it's gorgeous, I love the stripped down acoustic version the best.
3. What I Cannot Change - LeAnn Rimes.

You all already know I adore LeAnn Rimes. This song is so beautiful and honest. And it's become my mantra for life.
2. Vanishing - Mariah Carey

This is Mariah at her best. The vocals on this song are smoking and the lyrics are gorgeous! I want old school MC back!!
1. Me & Bobby McGee

I'm partial to the LeAnn Rimes recording of this song, since she introduced me to it. But Janis is amazing and this song is just sooooo good! I love the line, "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose."

Gah! That was HARD! I feel like I should have another list of ten for honorable mentions! Songs like Terrified by Katharine McPhee or Addicted by Kelly Clarkson or Cruz by Christina Aguilera or Happy by Rachel Williams or...I should probably stop. I could go on for days.

Alright, I'm off to take a peek at everyone else's entries before work. Make sure you guys all do the same. And have a great Monday!
