Awesome idea, Dave!
I'll get my list to you as soon as possible. :great:

I propose a motion. Everyone pick Syndicated Inc. as their favorite song. It'll annoy Jeremy. :lol:

EDIT: When I had narrowed down my list to the point where it'd be tough to let any go, I realized I unintentionally had 27 songs in the list. :blink: Very odd. :D

<_<

This sounds like a good idea. But also very difficult. I'll try narrowing them down as best as I can.

I just went through the Al songs on my iTunes, and made a list of my 25 top songs. I'll narrow it down and rank them soon.

I just sent in my list. My Top 5 are consistent favorites but the other 15 fluctuate more, but this is their ranking this week.
This means something. This is important.

I've got it down to about 30, but I'm having a really hard time getting any lower than that. I haven't even tried to order them yet.

And I thought people would have difficulty coming up with 20. :lol: I mean, most of us can probably rattle off our top 5 or so pretty easily, but once you start going beyond that, I find that you really need to start giving it some thought. :peace:

After my first set of cuts, I ended up with 55. :lol: I got it down to 33 and have no idea where to go from there. I'll figure it out eventually.

There are some that probably wouldn't be top 20 tracks for me but they're underrated gems that I doubt other people will include so I wanna give them a nod.
I'm ranking every Beatles song on my new pop culture blog. Check it out!

I just pretty much named some of my favorite songs, and most of them are in order. I tried, but I'm not good at ranking my favorite songs...
"Did you see Journey to the Center of the Earth?"
"I did!"
"Me neither...wait..."
"You had that planned didn't you?"
"..yeah.."

I basically copied the song list onto a text document and then eliminated all the ones that I knew didn't stand a chance in the top 20. That got me down to about 50-60, like anth. Then, I went through and made some more cuts, trimming it down to about 40. Then, I managed to get down to 30. Now, I'm kind of stuck. There are so many great songs on the list and I don't know what to cut.

This is actually pretty interesting, though. I've ranked the albums before, but I've never even attempted ranking the songs.

I'm guessing that this is pretty easy for Bob, though, judging by his profile. :lol:
