My 100 Favorite Songs of All Time

EDIT: Hey guys, a lot of people are ragging on me because the songs I've picked...some of them are pretty crappy. However, I should've noted beforehand that these are songs that I love from my whole musical journey. The music that I listen to now on a regular basis is vastly different from what I did 10 years ago. However, many of those songs from years ago still have a place in my heart b/c they brought me to where I am now. If the same songs came out now I probably wouldn't even hear them since I rarely listen to the radio anymore. So, hopefully that explains choices like Celine Dion, BoyzIIMen & Michael Bolton.

Ravleen said...

Have you heard of Jeff Buckley? Because quite a few people on the list (including Muse, Ray LaMontagne) were influenced by him and some of the legends you mentioned (Led Zeppelin, Queen) had an influence on him.

I'll stop pimping Jeff Buckley now. :)

Ravleen said...

but i will add to the list of people influenced by jeff buckley:

ben folds
john mayer

okay i'll shut up now. :) iv'e heard so much about muse but hvaen't heard anything from them. must check them out.

Jon said...

Wise choices. I'm afraid you forgot a few songs:

1. Dream On, Aerosmith
2. The Shadow Proves the Sunshine, Switchfoot
3. New Born, Muse
4. EVERY song by Sigur Ros
5. Sweet Child O' Mine, GNR
6. Jolene, Ray LaMontagne
6. The Weight, The Band

I'm just going to assume this was an honest mistake.

Will said...

Some verrry interesting choices here, Chris.

I'm wondering where the top 3 songs will be a couple years from now. Interested to see Muse and MuteMath so high on the all-time list, even though I find them really interesting. Couldn't tell you what I would put up there, though your list has inspired me to start putting together my own.

Thanks!!

Anonymous said...

ok...I'm really glad that "Don't Stop Believin'" is on here...but I must say I'm not too happy that you credited Mariah Carey w/ Open Arms when that was definitely a Journey song first...just sayin

ChrisSligh said...

If you look to the top of the post, you'll notice I put that these were my favorite recordings of songs...not necessarily the original artists. Mariah Carey's version of "Open Arms" is remarkable.

As far as other songs that could've been on the list...well, I'm sure there are favorite songs I missed, but again these are MY favorite songs. You can agree or disagree with them being your favorite, but their mine.

And I love these freaking songs.

Chris

I can't believe I'm the first fan to infiltrate your blog! You're creating a nice little stir already. Love the music on your myspace page and can't wait to see you audition next week. I'm already starting my finger yoga classes in preparation for mega Chris dialing sessions. You go boy!

Thanks for the comments, Amanda. Not much to say besides that, but hopefully my audition in Birmingham won't dissapoint. Tell your friends about the blogs and have them leave kind comments, too. Everyone...comment!!!

I love so many of these songs and I loved your American Idol audition! (was linked here via an Idol message board, hope you don't mind) You're a good singer and clearly a cool person, I hope you make it far on Idol! I love the Beatles and all the other classic rock songs you mentioned in this post - Blackbird in particular is such a beautiful song. Go Chris!

Sara said...

i would like to let you know, christopher sligh, that you are a B.A.M.F.

nice work on the audition. Greenville should be proud.

I saw you on idol and loved you.. you made me laugh so hard and your voice is amazing. Just thought I'd let you know that i thought you were great. Keep in touch.

I'd like to say I enjoyed your performance on TV tonight. I'm also a singer but more of a broadway type of guy. However, you decided to sing my favorite song from Seal...

When I heard that was what you were going to sing, I honestly sat there for a second and said,"Oh god, here we go again." But...

Damn! If you don't make it through to the end, I'm gonna be pissed. You have the potential to be the next American Idol bro.

Break a leg.

Jennifer said...

Good job tonight on American Idol. You've a great voice. Perhaps at the end you'll move to tears not only Hasselhoff, but Hicks as well.

Jennifer said...

On the list, I'm glad to see Madman Across the Water represented with "Tiny Dancer", although I would personally select the title track, "Razor Face", or "Levon" over "Tiny Dancer". I declare, that's one of the finest albums of all time.

I agree with the previous comments - a top 100 list must feature "Lover, You Should've Come Over" at least as a runner up.

These songs are mostly radio hits... oft-times, I'm looking through this list and thinking "great album, but this not-so-popular song was better."

"Sitting, Waiting, Wishing" is AWESOME on "A Weekend At The Greek". Check that out if nothing else.

Jill Manty said...

My husband and I both really liked your American Idol audition. We're plugging you on our American Idol blog as a favorite. Of course, I hope the fact that you're sitting around playing video games in mid-January isn't a bad sign for what Hollywood holds.

evenflow28@hotmail.com said...

All I can say is give me an application to be a charter member of the "Fro Patro." How can anyone not dig a white boy with a fro who grew up listening to Johnny Horton? Awesome stuff dude, you actually made me like the song "Kiss from a Rose" and I didn't think that was possible.

Greg said...

Good job on TV. I had to google your name to check you out and found this.

I look forward to seeing you in the upcoming months!

Greg

Lulu said...

Just want to say, you were fantastic on AI tonight. You sang a challenging song beautifully (it also happens to be my favorite by Seal), and you were very funny and seem not to take yourself too seriously. Kudos to you! Hope to see lots more of you on the show. Best of luck!

Calla said...

Ummm...Chris...why do you have Celine Dion's "Because you Loved Me" on your list twice? Just askin' :)

thisisit said...

saw you on idol... david hasselhoff ruled when he was crying... love some muse... where the hell are the people who sing like you in my town? Keep up the great work and I will be posted up by the phone when it comes time to vote for you... =)

moonfleck said...

Wow, I just saw your audition on AI and it was awesome! I was totally bored with the show until you walked in there. I thought you sang wonderfully and you are so funny. I really hope you make it to the finals!! Good luck! :)

Kristi said...

You're really Chris Sligh, from American Idol? (I feel like a retarded fangirl typing that.)

I just saw your audition and searched for pics to make a shrine in my closet.

Anyway, I love this list. You've got great taste.

Theresa said...

Good list! Good luck!

You doubled up on the Celine Dion "Because you loved me."

Chris,
My husband and I loved you on AI (you are hilarious!). I'm so glad I discovered this blog because I've enjoyed every word of it-- especially the story of your musical journey.

Best wishes on AI from a local Greenville couple. We'll be praying for you!

Michelle

Anonymous said...

Not only did my husband and I love you on AI, I now doubly love you because of your love for Ben Folds (my daughter's name is Kate because of his music) and your love of his Dr. Dre cover. That has to be the FUNNIEST cover ever, and yet still incredibly musical. And now that you've reminded me of it, it will be in my head all day long. Now that's some real conversation for your a^&.

Best of Luck on Idol.

Quixotic Goat said...

while i disagree completely with you list. you still rock my world.

Quixotic Goat said...

i shoudnt say "completely".. must just mostly..

i enjoy:

76. On Bended Knee by BoyzIIMen
73. Tiny Dancer by Elton John
72. Helter Skelter by the Beatles
43. Crazy by the Gnarls Barkley
39. Golddigger by Kanye West
15. Kiss from a Rose by Seal
5. Blackbird by the Beatles

but only helter skelter would have made it to my top 100. and MAYBE golddigger.

TV Fan said...

I agree with an above poster on the glad Journey made the cut..I too wept quietly when I saw you had chosen my all time favorite song, Open Arms, but my Mariah. *gasp My husband and I both enjoyed you on AI last night... just fabulous. And I love anyone willing to make Hasselhoff cry heh.Good luck to you!

The Parents said...

Sign me up! You were fantastic on AI last night, Chris :) I followed a link a friend posted to your blog and checked out your myspace...wow! Do you have these songs on CD?

You lured my hubby from the computer with your singing. He said "that was HIM?!" Good job!

Looking forward to hearing MUCH more from you.... simply amazing! Fro Patro! Fro Patro! Fro Patro!

Jen said...

Alright, I left one comment already, but I think Blogger ate it, so I'm gonna try this again! I loved your audition last night! You were so funny!! I added your audition video to my blog!
I can't wait to cheer you on!

Chris,

Well done on AI. I thought you were hilarious, and when it was time for you to sing I closed my eyes and prayed that you would be good. And you were excellent! Great job. I look forward to watching things unfold on AI, and I'm glad to have found your blog. Good luck. I'll be reading...!

Josh said...

Hey Chris, Josh again (from CMC). Just thought I'd chime in here as well and say I loved your audition.

Tamfish said...

What a breath of fresh air you are! A great new and different voice, with wonderful, varying taste in good music, an awesome sense of humor and a man of faith who isn't afraid to talk about it.....

Rock on Chris! You'll have my vote :o)

s (betahat) said...

I would definitely switch "Brick" and "Army," but at least they're above Michael Bolton :)

Anyway, good luck on Idol!

Anonymous said...

Looks like you're already creating quite a stir, Chris! Way to go!

Great list, but as ravleen said earlier, you should *definitely* check out Jeff Buckley. I also highly recommend the late Nick Drake, and the very much alive John Legend.

I guarantee that at least one of the above, if not all three, will change your life. Also, all three have great songs that fall within your range.

Fro Patro! Fro Patro! Fro Patro!

We found your blog and we really love the songs you've written....great job!!

Ravleen said...

I posted earlier about Jeff Buckley and others have agreed with me - his music is life-changing, awe inspiring, soul touching. But great list, some favorites of mine up there, as well as a few bands i now wish to explore.

i thought your audition was brilliant. from your songwriting and witty posts i knew i'd like you, but your voice is great as well, and you have my vote! g'luck.

(i'm hoping certain spoilers on idolforums.com are true)

Apolla said...

Alright, Well Im going to be quick.

Firstly, I dont think I could ever make a list like this. O___O;; I love too much music.

Now you may be wondering how I found you, and my answer is this; I Googled your name, hoping to find a copy of your Audition to send to one of my friends (it was a one of the, if not THE best performance in the episode.) I thought you were brilliant. SEAL- Kiss from a Rose is a wonderful song, and you are a really awesome guy. XD

I scrolled down, just to make sure (or perhaps half hoping) I wasnt the only one that Googled you. XD

Anyways, Im going to be off!

Blogger ate my previous comment, I think. In any case, excellent job on AI, Chris. Can't wait to see the next rounds and continue reading the blog.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the tip to Ray LaMontagne and Jolene. It's a great song! I wasn't familiar with Ray LaMontagne. I think I'll listen to a lot more of his songs. Juxtpose his Jolene with Dolly Parton's Jolene, especially when sung by Jack White (White Stripes).

Ronnie said...

Chris,

Like so many others, I found your blog after watching American Idol and was surprised to learn that you and I've taken a similar path. I went to BJU in the late 80's and found way too much there I couldn't explain. Anyhow, I'm hoping you do well in Hollywood. Your audition was magnificent and I've got to say, I LOVED your humor. My family and I will be pulling for you all the way through!

vixen said...

dude, i loved your audition. i thought you were awesome and i was hoping like hell you'd actually be able to sing. well-played, mr. sligh.

your taste is music is fabulously schizophrenic. ♥

Romi said...

Well sir, I have to admit... I didn't realize that people could actually sing songs that didn't suck. I'm sure you picked Kiss from a Rose for a reason... but I'm thoroughly impressed by your ability to sing it.

What's this album of yours that you're speaking about on your blog?? I'm interested... where can I hear samples?

Courtney said...

Chris- Can't wait to see you go all the way. You have fans rooting for you in California!! You're funny and you have an amazing voice!

great audition, i hope you make the cut

Glenn and Angie said...

Hi Chris, you don't know me but wanted to say hi because we have a mutual friend. My brother in law, the guy that married my sister, is Ben Gladd. I guess you went to Bob Jones together or something. I thoroughly enjoyed your audition the other night and congrats on making it to Hollywood. I can't wait to see what happens next. God Bless! Take care!!

AmyinTexas said...

Chris, I have watched your AI audition quite a number of times. I have also noticed your audition being shown on serveral news stations, as well as the Today Show! You are creating a stir, and I will do what I can to help. I run one of the Soul Patrol forums, and I am trying my best to get most of them behind you. (Some love you anyway, just from the audition. Love you more after I directed them to your bands myspace)

Your wit is amamzing, your voice is beautiful...and I love the hair!

Go Fro Patro'! HOFF HOFF HOFF!

Chris -

Man, I loved your American Idol audition! Looks like I'm not alone from what I see here. Your emotion just comes through in your music. I had to rewind and watch it on my TiVo a couple times, both to listen to you and to figure out what the hell Paula was on... but yeah, amazing. This is the first season I have watched from the beginning and plan to watch through to the end, so I'm pulling for you, and hope you put out an album for all of us to enjoy. Best of luck! ~Andrew

Just saw you on Idol tonight (I know I'm a couple days late). When they were showing your little preview before you went in, you had me cracking up. Then you had us laughing really good with what you said before you starting singing. My husband and I were hoping you were a good singer so you would make it through and we were pleasantly surprised to say the least. You are my favorite and I think my husband's too (haven't asked him). I hope you make it to the end. We'll definitely be voting for you - love your voice and personality! Good luck.

Hope you and Sundance becomes friends because you're both ultra-cool dudes - and the best singers American Idol has ever had...thank goodness you guys are on this year or it would be boo-ring. Best of luck! Can't wait to see more. And the fact you're a Christ-follower --- all the more cool! Way to go dude.

hey chris,

i remember hanging out a bit with you during your brief time at PCC, but it appears that you've changed a bit since then (love the hair). your voice was good when i heard you about 10 years ago, and it sounds great now.

AND when I found out what an awesome Christian guy you are, my loyalty was sealed!

My husband and I will be following and supporting you all the way. (I'm sure you've made it through the next rounds that haven't aired yet - if you haven't then Paula Randy and Simon are crazy).

You will be well-supported.

Good luck!!!!

Chris, have you noticed the number of people who've told you to check out Jeff Buckley? There's like, a lot. I trust that you've learned your lesson. You may borrow my copy of Grace anytime you like, if you should ever repent of your Jeff-Buckley-ignoring ways. It's sitting around somewhere in your house.

Enjoyed your audition and sense of humor. I will second the Buckley fans. I am a huge Muse and Ben Folds fan myself. The most recent Muse album is amaing. If you like them, you might enjoy Arcade Fire. As a Folds fan who is religious, I am surprised you omitted Not the Same, amazing song, would be a great one to perform on Idol (could even get the crowd involved). Finally, with your musical taste and sense of humor, check out the Magnetic Fields. Start with 69 Love Songs.

Chris-- loved your audition for Idol. Smart, witty, can SANG...proof that you don't have to be boy-band pretty to have mad talent!!

Hi Chris,

Hope you get to sing one of your fav songs from the list. Wishing you all the best for the upcoming competition. Can't wait to see you on that stage!

i'm gonna make a prediction.

you're going to be in the top 5, i'm 100% sure. i would bet money on that. not sure if you're gona win it all, but you're obviously the front runner right now. it could all change, but i don't think it will.


plus i second (or fifth? four or five have said it) the suggestion that you listen to some jeff buckley. :)

I never watched American Idol before this season. I started watching because apparently Idol seems to determine who will grammys, golden globes, and oscars as well as who had the #1 albums and such. Wild stuff.

Good luck dude. I like you. I like your style and your voice and that you are a blogger.

I LOVE that you like Harry Connick Jr. Great list of 100 songs.

well, at least the Beatles got two spots ;D otherwise, be careful when it comes to song choices on Idol man... a lot of these are predictable ballads that not many will jump out of their chairs for no matter how good you sing. Aim for your audience :) Show you can be a star in this day and age. Dion and Bolten choices will alienate everyone under 35.

P.S. you're hilarious.

You know...judging by your list--you would like Anberlin. God bless.

Cathy Storms said...

Hey, you have Graham Colton on your top 100. Now I am really impressed. I love Graham Colton. Got to see him in concert with the lovely Kelly Clarkson and they rocked!! Him & his band are so cool. It was my 4yr old grandaughters birthday & her very cool grandma (me) took her to see Kelly & Graham. Graham & his band picked my grandaughter up & we got to take a picture of her with the band...Now how cool is that!!!

Mon said...

I was surprised to see Eminem on your list.

I'm not familiar with many of the singers/artists because their songs are not played on the radio over here. Nor you can buy their CD's in record bars.

Kiss From A Rose is one of the best songs I've ever heard. Great melody and lyrics for a song included in a Batman soundtrack. Pretty hard song to sing but your rendition during the audition was great.

I wonder if you like CCR and John Fogerty.

Have a great day.

Peace,
Mon

bmorebamma said...

mr. sligh you seem to have quite a exstensive list, and you like a favorite of mine golddigger by kayne west. when i first heard that song on the radio. it cracked me up, even a local dj here said the same thing. then when i REALLY started to pay attention the lyrics . a lot of that stuff really happens in relationships. a lot of folkes may not care for mr. west but i like him .

bmorebamma said...

someone here mentions john ledgend . i just love his singing voice , just like i like yours. and gnarls barkley. i guess your CRAZY like me. like that lyric.lol

cynrama said...

I thought surely you would be a train, matchbox 20, or lifehouse fan....those are prob my top fav bands....next to HPF of course!! Love counting crows too though. Anyway, it was interesting to see your favorite songs. Some of those bands I've never even heard of so I am going to go look them up and listen now. Who knows, maybe I will find another favorite! Thanks!

Jen said...

Other than the complete lack of Jeff Buckley (and a few additions), you have impeccable taste.

I especially love the fact that Blackbird was so high on the list. It's one of my favorite songs of all time. I have the White Album on vinyl and I tell you what, there is nothing like listening to an old scratched up record with the recorded birds singing and my favorite band of all time singing this beautiful melody. I love it.

Ben Folds is probably my favorite artist right now. Evaporated tears my heart in pieces every time I hear it.

Buckley is an unbelievable artist in every sense of the word and you should definitely check him out if you don't know him already. Shame on you if you don't know him.:)

I listen to an awful lot of classical music, musical theatere, and opera. There is some great music to be had in those genres as well.

I have enormous respect for artists who write, play, and perform their own music. I do a little song writing myself, though I'm a better lyricist than a composer.

Loved the list and best of luck to you.:)
