Following Shek's lead, I'm creating a music thread and I create this in hopes that I (and others) can find some cool music to listen to:

Simply put, try to name your favorite ten songs of all time.

Genre doesn't matter period doesn't matter....just your top ten songs of all time.

You can list more than ten....as much as you like actually..I'm just looking for some cools songs I might've missed.

Laughing at other people's lists are not only allowed in this thread...but highly encouraged. ;)

Mine are in no particular order:





Eagles - Desperado

Stratovarious - Forever

CCR - Bad Moon Rising

Bon Jovi - Always

Bryan Ferry - Slave to Love

Dire Strait - Brothers in Arms

Alice Cooper - I Never Cry

ELO - Midnight Blue

Clannad - (Theme from) Harry's Game

Fire Inc. - Tonight is what it means to be young

CCR - Who'll Stop the Rain

Orleans - Still the One

Eagles - Take it to the Limit

Leonard cohen - I'm your Man

I've only heard of "Take it to the limit" and "Still the one" out of all these songs.

Metallica - Enter Sandman
Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal (2nd best music video of all time)
Alize - La Isla Bonita (she added that Mediterranean flavor to the song)
Kenny Logins - Danger Zone (crappy movie, best movie soundtrack of all time)
Glen Miller - In the Mood
Linkin Park - What I've Done
Queen - Fat Bottomed Girls

These are all the ones I can think of right now.

"smooth criminal"

I hope you realize, gunnut, that your love of zombies does not make up
for this transgression. :tongue:

Notice I said Smooth Criminal was the 2nd best music video of all time.

What's the first, you ask? Thriller!

^^^ I started out with Stairway but changed my mind. No Quarter and Hey Hey What Can I Do were in the running too.

My Floyd pick was between Money, Time, and Breathe. The Wall just didn't make the cut. ;)

Your Dylan pick is a good one (I prefer the Clapton version), but mine was better.

Notice the absense of 3 chord selections (Eagles) and Michael Jackson ( :confused: )....

Well, here are my top picks.

Jimmy Buffett - Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost
Jimmy Buffett - Delaney Talks to Statues
John Lennon - Across the Universe
The Beatles - Hey Jude/Imagine (tie)
Brian McKnight - I Remember You
Van Morrison - Moondance
Elvis Costello - Watching the Detectives/Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes (tie)
Buddy Holly - Everyday
Carole King - Tapestry
Chicago - Color My World
Earth, Wind and Fire - Fantasy
Basia - Simple Pleasures

Dang, I really have a lot of favorite songs, but those are a few.

Very hard to pick 10, I whittled it down to 10 off the top of my head, mighn't stand by it:

U2 - With or Without You
U2 - One
Don Henley - The End of the Innocence
Arcade Fire - Intervention
Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies)
The Romantics - What I like about you
New Order - Ceremony
The Cure - Just Like Heaven
The Cranberries - Zombie
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
(Honourary 11th! - French Kicks, Abandon).

Being an 80s child probably influences it, growing up U2 literally defined my generation of Irish kid, so I could think of 50 songs from them, as well as the innovation of bands like New Order, The Connells, Cranberries, even eclectic one hit sensations like the Tom Tom Club etc, that really reclaimed music in many ways.

Even today I could probably fill a list with Phoenix, The White Stripes, YYYs, the Hives, CSS, The Strokes, Snow Patrol, Dashboard Confessional, The Cardigans, and plenty others - mostly I like garage/art rock, only a little off mainstream but still pretty indie sounding, I've been known to dabble in girly stuff too though, Enya sings like an Angel:eek:.

Crooks: Enya is not girly stuff!

Jeez, top 10 songs of all time? No way in hell I'll be able to name just 10. I'll get back to that tomorrow or the next day, it's going to be really hard to make a list that short...
