    Songs that are just very cool for a particular reason
    1. The Beatles - Tomorrow never knows (because it sounds like it was made 40 years ahead of it' s time)
    2. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody (because all of it's twists and turns and the fact that I can sing along every detail of the song)

    4. The Bloodhound Gang - The Bad Touch (this is so wrong in so many ways, but the lyrics are just genius)
    5. Underworld - Born Slippy Nuxx - Live from Everything Everything (the lyrics are hypnotic, they only last 3 odd minutes, the rest of it' s 8 minutes runtime is just pure bliss and it' s even better live)
