Time to bust out another round of Top Five.

You may remember such Top Fives as The Original One from May 2005, or the October 2005 Edition, or even the one back in April.  Well here we are again, with the 2006 YearReindeer Games, of course. End Top Five.

2.  Top Five Albums/Songs You're Embarrassed to Admit Loving
