- "Above All" by Michael W. Smith: I've heard dozens of worship tunes in my time, but none has ever affected me in the way "Above All" did when I first heard it. I can still remember hearing it for the first time at a youth rally back in 2003, and feeling so moved, almost to tears. If you've heard it, you probably know exactly what I'm talking about.
- "Can't Back Down" by Demi Lovato and the cast of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam: This song is a protest anthem, in the vein of the 80's Twisted Sister hit "We're Not Gonna Take It." I've always liked protest anthems--I've even written some--and "Can't Back Down" also talks about standing up for what you believe in.
- "Got My Mind Set On You" by George Harrison: Okay, so, this song might be lyrically rubbish, but the music is so catchy. Every time I hear it, I can just imagine people dancing all around me, no matter where I am or what I'm doing.
- "The Imposter" by Kevin Max: This song has been the top played track on my iTunes since 2006. I think getting it around the same time I got my first iPod helped it gain that status. Anyway, it sounds great, and I haven't even gotten burned out on it, though I don't listen to it near as much as I used to.
- "Tell Me Something I Don't Know" by Selena Gomez: The movie Another Cinderella Story may have been dreck, but this song from the soundtrack is amazing. I just can't stop listening to it.
- Track One from Top Gear (yes, the Super NES game): I don't play video games anymore, but this track just makes me want to dance. I added to my iPod this past weekend, and it's been played on there at least once every day since.
