The Top Ten

Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
been listening to it since so long... it's one of the best songs by metallica. METALLICA RULES!

2Leave Out All the Rest - Linkin Park
This song is something to play at a wedding. The relaxed feeling of the song is socalming and at the same time rocks you to the core. When I heard it for the first time I was shaking. Chester should get a Nobel Piece Prize if he hasn't yet.


When ever I hear this song.. It's like I'm floating on the air...
Whenever I hear this, I always tearing
I'm flooding my face with tears
So sad...
Very very very sad...
