Inspired by the other all-time charts on this forum, I decided to publish my own countdown. It will include my favourite songs of the past 55 years, from 1955 to 2010.

So let's get started, I hope you enjoy it :D

Excellent, another ATC to follow! Will definitely start posting mine at some point too

I like:

997. No Rain - Blind Melon (1992)
994. Driver's Seat - Sniff 'n' the Tears (1978)
993. '74 - '75 - The Connells (1995)

I cannot stand that Tracy Chapman song or the dreadful Boyzone cover.

I bought two singles from each of the first two sets of ten.....

While there would be many Ace of Base tracks in my all-time top 1000 (maybe there are more to come later on in this countdown?), "Beautiful Morning" would fall short by around 400 places. But it's the closest of these four.

I don't recall what the commercial in which "Driver's Seat" was used in the early 1990's was advertising - but it caused the single to reach number one in the Netherlands, more than a decade after its first release!

"Driver's Seat" was used in a Pioneer commercial and topped the Dutch charts in the summer of 1991. It had already been a top 10 hit in the Netherlands in November 1980.
