My top five favorite all time songs (for today) & Scientology

Yesterday over lunch I was skimming through the Itunes music store. .
I noticed Jason Lee had a celebrity playlist and was interested to see what this guy likes. He seems like a cool guy, I mean c’mon he used to be a pro skateboarder and has been in some pretty good movies. I liked his playlist for the most part, I later looked on Wikipedia to get a little more Lee info. Holy Shit! Didn’t know Lee was a Scientologist. I’m always kind of let down when I find out people I like are Hubbardites. Ex: Jason Lee, Beck, Chaka Khan. Is that wrong?

Anyway, Lee’s celebrity list got me thinking about my favorite songs.
My hilarious Headline above explains it all. My favorite songs are always leapfrogging each other and sometimes changing. These changes are based on my age, seasonality, work schedule, personal life, and sometimes the newness of an album. Maybe all this changing makes me a bit shallow, but I don’t really care (insert laugh track).

Here are my top 5 right now (today) in no particular order.
Whos got some to share? C’mon just drop em don’t think about it.

Oh Jason Lee... that makes me sad... which might make me sound a little gay. Oh well, it does bother me a little. I wonder if in twenty years certain celebrities will go on drunken anti-scientologist rants, claiming they run Hollywood.

Man, scientologists must have Eyes Wide Shut~esque parties or something! How else could they convert so many celebrities?

Quebert,
Its a tough question and you nailed it. Nice work. I'm glad someone shares my feeling on the scientology thing.

Reugdog,
Its so so tough and almost impossible. I just wanted to see if I was the only one. some people do have a favorite song and I think thats so weird. How can you put everything ride onto one song...I just dont get it.

Oh well, maybe the Top 5 For Today will be a reoccuring question. As I look back on mine there are already 2-3 I would switch out with something else.
