1. 'Making Plans for Nigel,' XTC: This song starts out so simply, but as you become more familiar you understand how thought-out it really is. Nonetheless, the melody and beats are classic to me.
2. 'Radio Free Europe,' R.E.M.: What do I need to say? This song speaks for itself.
3. 'Can't Hardly Wait,' the Replacements: The opening riff of this song is instant for me. Paul [Westerberg] is the chronic, and to me is one of the great pop songwriters.
4. 'Love Will Tear Us Apart,' Joy Division: Again, the opening of this song is instant. I've heard this song one million times and the melodies still hold up.
5. ' Just Like Heaven,' the Cure: Despite popular opinion of the similarities of our voices, I carry no shame in recognizing the brilliance of this song. I think its perfect. Seriously.
