It's Listacular Tuesday!

Here at Grits and Gravy I've decided to institute Tuesday's list. I will make a list of five things under a category of my own choosing. I will encourage you, friends, to share your own list or berate (or compliment!) me about mine.

Here goes nuthin:

Top 5 (in no particular order) perfect songs in popular music

1. "The Weight" by the Band
2. "Wouldn't it be Nice" by the Beach Boys
3. "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones
4. "Son of a Preacher Man" by Dusty Springfield
5. "Don't Stop 'til You get Enough" by MJ

Honorable Mention: "Tears of a Clown"; "Fat Bottomed Girls"; "Me and Bobby McGee"; "I Wanna Hold your Hand."


  1. Excellent list. 5 is way too hard, though! In no particular order, I add:

    1. Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie
    2. God Only Knows by the Beach Boys
    3. In My Life by the Beatles
    4. PYT by Michael Jackson
    5. This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody) by Talking Heads


    I Say a Little Prayer by Dionne Warwick
    Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks
    For Once in My Life by Stevie Wonder
    Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles
    Get Me Away from Here, I'm Dying by Belle & Sebastian (I had to)

  2. I like your list, lady! I do kind of feel like Ms. Ross mIght find us and kick our shins for not including her, anywhere. "Reflections" is pretty close to perfection.

  3. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
    Going to California by Led Zeppelin
    Everyday by Buddy Holly
    In My Life by the Beatles
    Desperado by The Eagles

    Perfect and perfect!

  4. Brown Eyed Girl, Van Morrisson

    All My Loving, The Beatles (limited myself to one!)

    I think We're Alone Now, Tommy James & the Shondells or Tiffany- I'm not a purist here

    (Can't Get No) Satisfaction, The Rolling Stones

    Breakfast at Tiffany's, Deep Blue Something
