"I'll give it a 84, because it has a good beat and it's easy to dance to."

If we can bear to tear ourselves from the election: What are your favourite songs?

Kevin Michael Grace's thoughts on a Globe and Mail story reporting the fave tunes of Canada's national party leaders led him to name his top five popular songs.

Being less ambitious, I picked from a narrow subcategory of music. My post is here.

What songs do you like?

Girl group stuff like Leader of the Pack. "Runaway" by Del Shannon. "Something Else" (the original and the Sex Pistols version). Pretty much any Who song, including the little known "I Can't Reach You."

I like Del Shannon too...but my faves by him are Hats Off To Larry and Keep Searchin'. Runaway is good too.

For pure enjoyment and relaxation, I would have to choose something from J.J. Cale (particularly his first 5 albums) or some early Rolling Stones. "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is a particular favourite for historical reasons (and also works well when playing Bin Laden Liquors on the computer).

My top "political" pick would be "Bomb Iran" from Vince Vance and the Valiants.
