Writer's Block: Top ten playlist

What is your top-ten song list? What was it when you were a kid? Is there any overlap?
Are you serious? There's barely any overlap in my "top ten song list" from last week, let alone from when I was a kid! When I was a young kid, I listened to a lot of rap, guys like Public Enemy, Eric B. and Rakim, MC Hammer, stuff like that. When I hit my teens, I became disillusioned at where rap was going, with less rap and more G-Funk and petty, teenage squabbles (one of which would cost us Tupac and Biggie), and simultaneously was exposed to Led Zeppelin. Into my 20s, I started finding more heavy metal. Now, in my late 20s/early 30s, I'm back to listening to rap (though admittedly with a very heavy soul influence, like The Roots and Common) as well as some rock, and even a bit of old school punk/emo/whatever you want to call The Smiths. My tastes are eclectic to say the least.

I couldn't find my top ten ARTISTS of all time, it'd change from week to week. You think I'm going to find top ten SONGS of all time!?
