The Top Ten Roof Songs!

We're having a little fun here, and we promise that no quantitative methods were harmed in the making of this list. The songs are presented purely according to arbitrary personal preferences, but we are open to suggestions if you think we've overlooked some gem of a roof song. We aren't trying to depress anyone, though, so don't go contacting us to remind us about "The Roof is Leaking" by Phil Collins. And yes, of course, "The Roof is on Fire" would have been #2 (the Bloodhound Gang version, not the Rock Master Scott & The Dynamic Three version) if we didn't think it was in poor taste to be obscene on the internet.
