The lists are, as a whole, in order of difficulty, from easiest to hardest to choose. Naturally, the hardest-to-choose lists are also those that are most likely to change. Check the source; I commented out runners-up.
Albums [Counting Crows]:
I started to do a top five songs list, but it was taking far too long. If I ever get around to it, I'll make some specialized top five song lists. For example: "Songs I sing in the shower", "Songs to commit crimes to", "Drinking songs", "Songs that make me want to fall in love". That ought to be easier.
