I have to comment that this was a really difficult (but fun)task; simply picking my top ten from that many wonderful songs! As I shuffled the songs up and down, some fell to #11, 12 and so on, right off the list...

Ugh, pick ten!? I'm not sure I can hack that. I mean, obviously #1 has to be the Masaru Wada recording of
"Don’t Be Cruel", but I do not know how to pick the other nine favourites. Yikes. :)
