I love these lists. I had to go look at my own 13 favorite songs (based on my iTunes ratings I have about 100 super-faves), so from those, in no particular order:

1. Use Me, Bill Withers
2. Unchained, Johnny Cash
3. Guns of Brixton, Nouvelle Vague (shoot me, I like the cover better than the original)
4. I'll Take you There (Staple Singers: Everyone who knows me well, knows that this is the song I want playing at my funeral)
5.Hallelujah (by anyone who sings it)
6.El Carretero, Buena Vista Social Club
7.The Mercy Seat, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
8.Sang Fezi, Wyclef
9.Come As You Are, Nirvana
10.Elvis Everywhere, Kronos Quartet
11.Goodnight Irene, Leadbelly
12. Holy to the Lord, Neko Case
13.Bob Dylan, Tangled up in Blue

Tori, thanks for sharing your list... I'll check out the song. I'm particularly intrigued by the cover of Guns of Brixton. Have you heard Mavis Staples latest CD--awesome! The Mercy Street is a fave.

GREAT list!!!

I'm impressed that you managed to get it down to only 20 songs (even in a rotating list). Best I can ever manage is "my favorites right this minute" (hahahaha!!!).

That is why it has to be a rotating list ;)
