Good to see a fellow fan! "Meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime..."

What are you talking about? U2 rules!

 

Favourite albums (in no specific order):

 

* Cancion Animal – Soda Stereo


 

Wow.. how could I forget Soda??

Now *that's* what I call a great, great album. Musica Ligera is one of my top ten favorite songs in Spanish. Thanks for the reminder Marcelo and the U2 support :)

I have 3 reasons on why U2 sucks:

1. Bono is a pompous asshole. He does a lot of things for charity, which is good, but he acts like the fu*king pope after he's done it.

2. The band is overrated. Heavily. There isn't a grocery store I've walked into that hasn't played U2 through the god damn intercom.

3. They're boring. None of their songs have ever given me any sort of influence (except for Mysterious Ways, that song is ok) on my music. I heard this on a U2 message board: "U2's song Vertigo features a very heavy lyric, and never gets repetitive." Really? Never get's repetitive? What about the "YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!" part? Also, heavy lyric? What the hell is that supposed to mean? It's more than 5 pounds? The only lyric that is a little less fairy from the rest is the ooh's. It's still fairy, though.

 

There you have it. 3 reasons why u2 sucks.

1. I don't really care what Bono do in his spare time.

2. You rate a band by listening them in grocery stores? Weird standard...

3. You don't have to listen to them, just listen whatever else band you like. I don't care what someone said in a message board. That was an opinion, maybe that was irony too...

 

 

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I guess it really isn't U2 I hate, just it's stupid fanbase. They act like they're the best band ever when really they haven't had much success by my terms. One fan even said I should be executed for not liking them. If someone doesn't like the beatles, I don't think they should be shot. They're obviously crazy but I don't want them dead.

Well I'm used to it. Actually tomorrow my students who are taking a semestral exam with me will call me with worst names a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

(Just kidding)

 

Edit : I think with this I close the topic. You don't like U2, I love them. So that's fine. Peace and love man!!

A heated U2 argument on a Beatles board, who would've thunk it? I don't know, I think U2 is okay but I guess I agree with not understanding all the hype about them. But, I'm sure someone has said the same thing about the Beatles…whoops.

Metamorphosis from Iron Butterfly???

I only know the song "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." (Now there's a song worth revisiting - though maybe not the original extended version...)

What's on Metamorphosis that makes it a top-20 album?

I find when I try to rank my Favourite Albums Of All Time, it is a very difficult process and one which I must eliminate the Beatles from completely in order to be fair. That in itself, though, is unfair considering the impact and influence they have on my life and my listening. I consider Revolver to be the greatest pop album of all time, but that doesn't necessarily mean it sits at the top of my "favourites." The list of albums I personally always find myself coming back to would look something like this, in no particular order:

Ian Dury and the Blockheads- New Boots and Panties!!

Paul and Linda McCartney- Ram

The Police- Outlandos D'Amour

Joni Mitchell- Blue

Jorge Ben- A Tabua de Esmerelda

The Replacements- Let It Be

Paul Simon- Graceland

Scott Walker- Scott 4

Harry Nilsson- Nilsson Sings Newman

Sly and the Family Stone- Stand!

Emitt Rhodes- Emitt Rhodes

The Bomboras- It Came From Pier 13!

Sun Kil Moon- Ghosts of the Great Highway

Chris Bell- I Am The Cosmos

SHUT UP - Paulie's talkin'

I'll attempt a top 20:

1. Funeral- Arcade Fire

2. Revolver- The Beatles

3. Blood On The Tracks- Bob Dylan

4. Rubber Soul- The Beatles

5. Low- David Bowie

6. Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast- Cornershop

7. Innuendo- Queen

8. Plastic Ono Band- John Lennon

9. Abbey Road- The Beatles

10. All Things Must Pass- The Beatles

11. Journal For Plague Lovers- Manic Street Preachers

12. Blonde On Blonde- Bob Dylan

13. London Calling- The Clash

14. The Village Green Preservation Society- The Kinks

15. Hunky Dory- David Bowie

16. Highway 61 Revisited- Bob Dylan

17. Green- R.E.M.

18. Ziggy Stardust- David Bowie

19. The Suburbs- Arcade Fire

20. OK Computer- Radiohead

21. Exile On Main Street- The Rolling Stones

22. Dark Side Of The Moon- Pink Floyd

23. England Keep My Bones- Frank Turner

24. Urban Hymns- The Verve

25. White Blood Cells- The White Stripes

26. (What's The Story) Morning Glory- Oasis

27. Parklife- Blur

28. Are You Experienced?- The Jimi Hendrix Experience

29. Bridge Over Troubled Water- Simon and Garfunkel

30. The Beatles- The Beatles

Okay, even though that spilt over into a top 30, that feels massively inadequate. I could make that a top 50 and still not be content.

When I try to think of my favorite albums/artists/songs, I don't usually include The Beatles, John, Paul, George, or Ringo because they would make the whole list. When people ask me what my favorite band is I don't even say The Beatles anymore. They are, but it's weird because it's like they have gone past being my favorite band.

1. Sgt. Pepper's - The Beatles

2. Abbey Road - The Beatles

3. Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd

4. Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel

5. Revolver - The Beatles

6. All Things Must Pass - George Harrison

7. Band On The Run - Wings

8. Nevermind - Nirvana

9. Speak Now - Taylor Swift

10. Imagine - John Lennon

11. Tug Of War - Paul McCartney

12. Dino: Italian Love Songs - Dean Martin (This album has always been one of my favorites, and I think having my all time favorite song on it, On An Evening In Roma, makes me like it that much more.)

13. The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan

14. Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

15. Good News For People Who Love Bad News - Modest Mouse

16. (What's The Story) Morning Glory? - Oasis

17. The Predator - Ice Cube (I usually can't listen to rap albums straight through, but this one is too good)

18. It Might As Well Be Swing - Frank Sinatra (I like Nothing But The Best better, but this is my favorite real album of his.)

19. Fearless - Taylor Swift

20. Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness - The Smashing Pumpkins

Seems like a reasonable thread to make my first post on! ...

 

There's just too many too list, but my top ten are probably as follows:

 

The Beatles: Magical Mystery Tour (Favourite album)

The Beatles: White Album

The Beatles: Sgt Peppers

Tom Waits: Small Change

Pink Floyd: Meddle

CCR: Green River

Van Morrison: It's Too Late To Stop Now

Neil Young: Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

The Band: The Band

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Second Helping

 

Like I said, just too many to list. I'm only 30, a Gen-Xer , so there's a ton of contemporary albums that I love as well , just seems that all of the best were recorded before I was born !!!

 

Peace... and carrots.

Full speed ahead, Mr. Parker, full speed ahead!

My wishy-washy top 10, with stipulations:  only one album per artist, studio albums only, no greatest hits compilations.  And on any given day, the list changes rather substantially, of course.

 

1)  The Beatles:  Revolver*

2)  Bob Dylan:  Blood on the Tracks*

3)  Elvis Costello:  This Year's Model*

4)  Neil Young:  Everybody Knows this is Nowhere*

5)  Richard and Linda Thompson:  Shoot Out the Lights*

6)  Derek and the Dominos:  Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs

7)  The Clash:  London Calling

8)  Paul Simon:  Graceland

9)  The Byrds:  Sweetheart of the Rodeo

10)  Wilco:  Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

 

*Whittled down from 2 or more other choices by the same artist, any of which could substitute for the listed album.

Only 10? I'll give it a go, and this is in no particular order:

1. The Beatles - The Beatles

2. The Who - Quadrophenia

3. Blur - Blur

4. Paul McCartney - Ram

5. The Kinks - Village Green Preservation Society

6. Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti

7. The Beatles - Rubber Soul

8. The Rolling Stones - Let it Bleed

9. Rush - Moving Pictures

10. Spock's Beard - Snow

 

But there are MANY more albums just as meaningful to me that I had to leave off of this.
