Your list might be the closest thing I've seen so far to what one of mine might have been, only on a different day and in a little different mood. For me it would be impossible to come up with a final 5 that would stay constant. It would be more like at least 50 songs, all sort of revolving.

So, for today:

"Those Were the Days" -- Cream
"A House Is Not a Motel" -- Love
"Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing" -- Buffalo Springfield
'You're a Better Man Than I" -- Yardbirds
"Today" -- Jefferson Airplane
