Okay, let's see how many "favourite" songs I even have, shall we? I'll do it in groups of bands. :)

Cradle Of Filth
1. No Time To Cry (a cover of a Sisters Of Mercy classic)
2. Suicide And Other Comforts
3. The Black Goddess Rises II (the II just means it's a re-recording, which is much better than the original IMO)
4. Bathory Aria
5. The Nun With The Astral Habit
6. Deceiving Eyes
7. Lilith Immaculate (all-time favourite Cradle song, at least for now)
8. Heaven Torn Asunder
9. A Gothic Romance (Red Roses For The Devil's Whore)
10. The Death Of Love
11. Honey And Sulphur
12. Darkness Incarnate
13. Lord Abortion
14. Her Ghost In The Fog
15. Tearing The Veil From Grace
16. Gabrielle
17. Swansong For A Raven
18. Dirge Inferno
19. Cemeterty And Sundown

So that's 19 favourites out of the 132 songs of theirs that I own. :)

Next band!

Chalice
1. An Illusion To The Temporary Real
2. To Death Betrothed
3. Abyss
4. A Winter In The Desert
5. Requiescat

That's 5 favourites out of 21 songs. :)

Pop chicks
1. Katy Perry - One Of The Boys
2. Katy Perry - I Kissed A Girl
3. Madonna - Erotica
4. Lady Gaga - Just Dance
5. Lady Gaga - Paparazzi
6. Lady Gaga - The Fame

My Chemical Romance
1. Welcome To The Black Parade
2. Cancer
3. Famous Last Words
4. Helena
5. The Ghost Of You
6. Cemetery Drive

The Agonist (favourite band right now)
1. Thank You Pain
2. ...and Their Eulogies Sang Me To Sleep
3. Martyr Art
4. Globus Hystericus
5. Swan Lake
6. When The Bough Breaks
7. Business Suits And Combat Boots

So how many favourite songs is that? 19 + 5 + 6 + 6 + 7 = 43. Hmm. So to pick 20 favourites out of that would require halving everything... I'm not sure I can do that. I even left out a couple of bands that I have 1 or 2 favourite songs from...

But still... I just turned my playlist of 354 songs into 43 favourites. That's pretty good, right?

(And please don't ask me to put them all in order of preference! I've got to at least try to get some writing done today!)
