I've always been horrendously ignorant of who sings my favorite songs. It would take me a very looong time to research a top-ten list, with artists and styles from the 1800s to now.

My current favorite is "Everything is Awesome" from the Lego movie. It's a very happy, stupid song that just makes you feel good. That is fortunate, because it takes over a week to get it out of your head! (Like "Call Me Maybe" from a couple of years ago.)

The best way I've found to make a playlist is to have everything organized by genre, and then adjusting the playlist by percentage of each genre in the mix. You get some really weird/fun song combinations that way.

Default The Allman Brothners

"Everybody wants to know where Jimmy has gone.
He left town, I doubt if he's coming back home..."

Once again, the ride into work reminds of another song that would have been in my top 10 if I'd have thought of it when I made the list. The Allman Brothers' No One to Run With. What a great song that was.

Default calm and peaceful music

I like the calming sound of the instruments in an album called "From Montana to the Sea" by earthpassage. This group also made a peaceful album called "Quiet Paths"
