Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want an example that will rock your socks off!! (maybe it won't...)
EDIT: Why do people say what they edited?? Well, I will too! I accidentally spelled "lists" as "listed." OOPS!

For example, if you are makeing a chat server and there will be a large number of people logging on and off over a relatively short period of time, you would use a linked list. That way, you could add people and remove people quickly without having to shuffle an array.
Arrays are great if you know exactly where in you collection you have something.
Linked Lists are best when you have to keep things sorted and you have to add and remove things from the middle of the list.
