Yann Tiersen – La Dispute: 6

Very pleasant piano piece that became famous thanks to the film Amélie (but contrary to popular perception was not written for it). It's very likable, but doesn't stick out to me like some other Amélie tracks.

Dio – Holy Diver: 7

One of those metal songs that is close to cheese, but hits a sweet spot. Not as all-encompassing amazing as, say, the best or Iron Maiden, but people who like metal should like this and since this has something of a classic status, they seem to love it.
