Best Songs of 2005

Yeah, it's that time of the year again: the end. That's when we're supposed to reflect with nostalgia upon the past...twelve months, which feels more like the present than the past. Anyway, FlynnFiles will play along. In the first of several retrospective posts, I offer my ten favorite songs from 2005. If the spirit moves you, click on a link to purchase the album from which the song came. FlynnFiles gets a cut.

Songs released in 2005, or songs released in 2004 that got their day in the sun in 2005, qualify. Songs that made last year's list do not, even though several of them got more airplay in 2005 than 2004. Got a top-ten list? A top-five list? A top-three list? Let's see it in the comments section. Here's my list of 2005's ten best songs:

10. Be Yourself--Audioslave
9. Apply Some Pressure--Maximo Park
8. American Baby--Dave Matthews Band
7. Don't Fail Me Now--Ryan Adams & The Cardinals
6. Dakota--Stereophonics
5. Streets of Love--The Rolling Stones
4. Razor--Foo Fighters
3. Fix You--Coldplay
2. Devils & Dust--Bruce Springsteen
1. Best of You--Foo Fighters

Don't player hate. Player participate. Let's see your list.

I don't recognize any of these titles... Was this a bad year for singles?

Do Me Bad Things is a great song, however even better that "Liv Ullman" is on drums. Frankie you are trully a FREAK!

Nevermind mocking me Quest. Please reveal your list. And how did you settle on "quest" quest? I much prefer journey or mission or adventure or crusade or pilgrimage. Why quest?
